Ellie Rocks Glastonbury..

Wow! Ellie totally smashed it at Glastonbury what an adventure I've had.   Finally I have  made it back home after sleeping on the tour bus and sharing 'The Machines' almost blown up bed all the while getting awfully lost.   My phone died and I nearly ended up in Switzerland Another ridiculous couple of days!!!

Make up wise we discovered Topshop's lipstick 'Brighton Rocks' its matte and it stays on all day, perfect for such festival adventures.... although to be frank in my lost panic circling Glastonbury for 4 hours I didn't give a toss what I looked like....

Lets talk Pins and Needles - Facial Rejuvenation - 'Life is for Living Well' - Lilja Katanka

Lets talk Needles

I have been really intrigued by reports of non ivavsive anti ageing facial accupunture or dare i say facelifts... I have been having accupunture for my back and period pains and felt for myself the amazing benifits of a few choicely placed pins.

So. I went to see Lilja Katanka to try this procedure out for myself.

Well, I lay on my back slightly nervous of the amount of needles that seemed to be laid ready for me all sizes tightly packed in their celephane shells.

Lil began on my ears tap tap tap then my hands feet and chest, so far so good.. you can build yourself up in anticipation for one of these needles but the prick is really awfully quick!

As Lil started to place them along my jaw, feeling the muscle then tapping it in I thought to myself..
a) this is definately worth £75 an session because its hardcore, you would not want anyone that didn't know what they were doing attempting this one, i also thought
b) jeez Lucy Wearing this is some new level of vanity as I'm being pinned down like some species of butterfly.

I told Lil,' I need a Dictaphone Lil so i can talk through this' she replied that soon I would find it difficult to talk anyway, surely not me i thought. Teeny tiny needles go in brow furrows and laughter lines they are so tiny they are tapped in with tweezers, By this point there was no way I could count how many I had in me they were everywhere in my neck. my scalp, . and boom... I fall into complete and utter deep relaxation like never before. woah.....

I awake as the pins are plucked out and a beautifully scented natural oil massaged onto my face, I pull myself up from the table and I'm astounded at how calm and relaxed I feel. Then I see for myself in the mirror that my eyes are a startling white (my eyes are never white) and I try to wrinkle up my brow but the furrows I have had forever are resistant to show themselves. My skin looks calm and more even toned my brow appears to have been lifted.

What magic is this!

It takes 12 sessions to complete the process and I have now had 6. The results are AMAZING, I don't know whether I thought that it would work. I couldn't really get my head round how it could work. But my skin is more luminous than when I was 15 pores are tightened, dark circles- what dark circles ? Any scars are fading away, my brows have definitely lifted, its much easier to apply my eyeliner, laughter lines are plumped, vanishing further everyday. I don't need to wear foundation, my skin is tighter but more than anything its the effect it has had on me psychologically that has suprised me the most and I whole heartedly couldn't recommend it enough. I feel centered and if you know me then you can imagine what a feat that is!

So Ill report back when I've had the 12 and until then here is some more informative information for you to read.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture helps to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction especially in the face and neck. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Bags and sagging around the eyes, face, and neck can be significantly reduced and toned up. Metabolism is greatly improved through these treatments, resulting in reduced puffiness often to the point of elimination. As Acupuncture can profoundly effect the regulation of hormones in the body, conditions like acne and overly dry skin can be quite improved. By substantially increasing the circulation of blood, lymph, and qi to the head, these treatments improve the complexion noticeably. Healthy facial coloring can be restored and there can be a tightening of the pores. Stress and habitual expressions which are so visible on the face are transformed resulting in a remarkably younger, calmer, and less worn looking face with which to meet the world. Inner beauty, vitality and serenity: all these very obviously visual benefits manifest in the appearance while many pre-existing health conditions are cleared up because Acupuncture works by treating the whole body and addressing the underlying causes of aging and disease.

Living Doll - Blocking Out Eyebrows - THE FACE

Here's my Demo from June 2nd, I experimented and blocked out the eyebrows with wax, pressing in copius amounts of powder before full coverage using no sealor or spirit gum. It was a fairly successful method, however I dont think Ill be trying it again. Having no sealor allows the wax to become way too mailable its fine initially but there's no way you could keep it that way throughout a shoot or music video. When you have the sealor its also makes it easier to get a good blend of shadow / pigment.
Matte plastic sealor is the best RCMA the others are just too gloopy and visable.
