The Fabulous Files - The Beauty Therapist

Who: Renei Kingi
What: Beauty Therapist and Skincare Expert
Where: New Zealand

What is your earliest makeup memory?
My Grandma only ever used Lancôme skincare and makeup and she wore all Chanel fragrance. When I was little I'd go and sit at her vanity and put on all of her products.

What was your first perfume?
Revlon Charlie and Clinique Happy. My dad brought them back from overseas for me when I was 10. I wasn't keen on the Charlie but from then on he always brought me back a bottle of Happy when he went away.

What is your signature scent now?
Armani Code for women.

Biggest hair disaster?
When I was about 13 I wanted bleached blonde highlights. It turned my black hair seaweed green!

What is your ultimate indulgence?
Decléor facials or a good microdermabrasion treatment.

What is your number one skincare tip?
Make sure you use a good exfoliator 1-2 times a week to remove all your dead skin cells and allow your moisturisers to absorb better.
(BBL note: Renei gave me heaps of tips so I'll share some more with you at the end.)

What was the last item of makeup you bought?
My Shiseido Perfect Smoothing Compact Foundation. I take it everywhere and I can't live without it! FYI I use shade I60.

Do you have a makeup wishlist for the future?
- Shiseido Future Solution LX Eye and Lip Contour Regenerating Cream. Expensive but good!
- YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres in shade 14 Fuchsia Dore.
- Shiseido Aromatic Sculpting Gel for the body. Amazing!
- Urban Decay Naked Palette (BBL note: She's seen mine and she wants one!)

What do you enjoy most about being a Beauty Therapist?
I love skincare and therefore doing facials. I know how good they feel and so I like to pass that on to others. Helping people with their skincare concerns interests me and I love seeing the results my clients get from a series of corrective treatments.

Any advice for people wanting to become a Beauty Therapist?
Do your research. Ring around and find out where salons prefer you to train. There's no point doing a long drawn out course if you aren't going to have the right qualifications at the end of it, especially if you want to work overseas. Also, make sure you have a passion for helping people and their concerns, it's obvious if you aren't interested and it'll set you apart from the rest.

Renei's other skincare tips:
- Don't use your day cream at night, the formulas are different and you don't need the SPF on at night.
- Use an eye cream as early as possible. Dehydration lines turn into fine lines and fine lines turn into wrinkles!
- Don't use heavily coloured or artificially fragranced items as many people are sensitive to these and can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage.

Thanks for chatting Renei! 
Isn't she a darling?
