Chic Finds the best looking skin on the market

Beauty, fashion

You can do a lot these days for wrinkles, sagging skin and deep seated lines in our faces but that healthy glow is harder to achieve. There are amazing preparation products that give your skin what it needs but how do you achieve that fresh dewy look with make up? Chic Finds LOVES the RMS make up brand. Like no others it has an amazing ingredient base of  coconut oil which is known for its natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which is why its so good for your skin and can actually help clear acne spots. We love the dewy, hydrated complexion that these organic ingredients promotes.  Depending on your skin tone you have a range of colours to choose from. Chicfinds uses a combination of 22 and 44.

If your set with your favourite foundation already then solid gold from RMS is the Master Mixer. An amazing product that reveales a luminous rose gold shade, with a delicate sparkly finish. No, we’re not talking chunky glitter here. RMS calls it the ‘Midas Touch’. Here is what the founder, Rosie Marie Swift of RMS said about Master Mixer; ’ “I have wanted to create a product like this for a long time, the one product I have been missing in my kit. The Master Mixer™ transforms any of my products with a perfect warm rose gold that is flattering on anyone. Used alone or mixed with my Living Luminizer, it effortlessly blends over the cheek bones, browbones, down the bridge of the nose, bow of the lips, and even the eye lid for a subtle, sexy gold shimmer. Magic truly happens when this product is combined to any of your lipsticks resulting in the most gorgeous, refined iridescence imaginable to your lips. Blends perfectly with powders or creams.”—Rose-Marie Swift, Brand Founder

One of the other beauties of this product is it is so easy to apply. It goes on the skin so well just using the fingers and there is no start and finish line. The aluminizes ;  Magic Luminize  are so natural that you don’t see where the fingers have been, just a natural looking dewy look that creates a healthy yet undone look.

All RMS products can be found at Mecca and Sephora. Definitely worth a look, Chicfinds is hooked on this product as the results are incredible and the price is acceptable.

Want to have a bit more luminosity? Grab some pieces for your summer wardrobe that you can wear and wear again without feeling repetitive. Love the sequin t-shirt to put back with cut off shorts, skinny denim, knee length skirt, black pant, list is never ending, it’s a must have. Below is sequin top By Chloe, now at Outnet. Another alternative that is also an all rounder for every occasion is the sequin jacket. Probably our favourite as you can put over a singlet, t-shirt, dress, you name it and it looks sharp and sexy. Velvet have the perfect one, Razi Sequins Mock jacket. A girl has to have a pair of sparkly shoes. They are so much fun and just make you feel like a girl all over. Gianvito Rossi shoes are top of the list at Chic finds. We have a couple of pairs that are on the wish list; Loving this sling back which also comes in black. Bit of a kitty cat shoe that suits everything and is comfortable. Alternatively we are dreaming about their Portofino Lamé 85 Heel. Here they are in Kaleido silver;

 

Feeling the love for glitter, sparkle and metallic all over!!! Now the finishing touch with the Alto Evening Bag from Whiting and Davis made from metal mesh.

I am not obsessed with brands and am not keen at all on clothing that has logos all over it however I have to say that there is nothing like the quality of high end brands. They last forever in terms of quality and form if you buy them correctly. The best way to buy them is to go for the more classic pieces. You can be wearing Zara or any of the fast fashion brands and if you mix it with a pair of shoes, a bag, jacket or trouser from one of the luxury brands it will look a lot more chic! If your like me you don’t have a fortune to spend on clothes so you have to be clever and have some fun in the recylcled fashion stores of the world! The best one in Sydney is Di Nuovo in Paddington. They always have a fantastic selection of shoes and bags as well as great fashion clothing pieces. You can find a fantastic branded jacket for a tenth of the price and they are all in really good condition. It has brands from Chanel to Zimmerman. Check out their blog; http://dinuovo.tumblr.com/

If your in Milan you should visit Salvagente which is not recycled but it is the left over stock of the season. You can find every high end luxury brand there; Lanvin, Chloe, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and so on. They have three floors!! It is an absolute must to visit. They are in Via Fratelli Bronzetti 16, take a look at their web site for opening hours; http://www.salvagentemilano.it/

In Hong Kong one of the best to visit is Button Hole in Soho, 58-60B Peel Street, Tel 28992069. In Paris I go regularly to Coiffeur Vintage, Rue de Rosiers 32 (vintage is a post to come!) but for luxury high end brands you need to go outside Paris to La Vallee Village in Marnes la Vallee. If you are in Switzerland you must go to Foxtown which is in Mendrisio (Switzerland) just over the boarder from Italy (great if you want to visit Lago di Como on the way). It is amazing! All the brands have their own stores and the prices are incredible. For information visit the web site; http://www.foxtown.ch
