I recently attended an event at Holt Renfrew in Toronto with an amazing concept! If you brought in an empty bottle of shampoo, you got a FREE bottle of Fekkai's shampoo. Standing in line to get my free shampoo, I filled out a questionnaire which helped to narrow down which shampoo choice is the best for me and my lifestyle. I ended up getting the Brilliant Glossing shampoo and purchased the conditioner right away:
Here are just some of Fekkai's tips and his philosophy on beauty:
"When clients ask me what they should do to update their look I usually say, "Less!" To me, the fundamentals of modern, fresh, uncontrived style are quite basic:
•Clean, shiny hair
•Not too much makeup
•Very little jewelry
And these are the things I recommend you avoid—they age even the most beautiful woman who wears them:
•Too much foundation
•Obvious lip contour
Heavy eye makeup
•Too much hairspray
•Overdone highlights or over processed hair
When getting dressed for an event, pamper your senses and you will uplift your spirit. The clothes you choose should be quietly luxurious. Consider combining different textures: a velvet skirt with suede boots, a pastel silk skirt with a cashmere shawl. Create outfits that make you feel confident, attractive, and charming, without ever distracting from your personality. Consider these guidelines:
•Be elegant, but do not show off.
•Select fabrics with a wonderful texture, you’ll feel contented wearing them.
•Always add a touch of color, even if everything else is black—it always looks right.
•Show a little skin, at the shoulders or legs, but not both.
I think I'll be studying Fekkai's philosophy for the next little white - it makes so much sense and its all about that classic European sophistication I love so much!!!
