7 Best Beauty Products I Discovered in 2018

We are continuing with our “Best Of” lists. We only have two more days to go so we are really trying to get our hands on all of the categories. What’s next? Well, my favorite one: beauty products. This category is one where I spend a significant amount of my money, because I believe in quality and that usually comes with a price tag. How can you blame me? My Instagram feed (just like yours) gets hit by so many products on daily basis that it becomes overwhelming. And for that exact reason, I won’t be telling you about every product that lives on my shelf.

Today I’m here to talk about my favorite beauty discoveries that were made throughout the course of past year. I’m sure you have seen them all over Instagram, but I just wanted to give you my word for it. Here are products that have moved from “the nice to haves” to “must haves” list. Seven products I genuinely recommend as a girl with dry hands, dry hair and combination skin, my seven beauty standouts of 2018:

Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara Mini and collection of gold earrings

 Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation ($44): smooth and blends in easily. It stays on beautifully throughout the day, and trust me it’s not an easy thing to find for a girl with oily skin. Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil ($84): I use it mostly on my roots after a shower and before styling. It works great as a finishing product and helps with flyaways. A little goes a long way so that price tag is really not as bad. You can always add a few drops to your hair mask. Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara Mini ($12): It instantly boosts length and volume. It separates lashes like no other one did before. It lasts all day and is easy to wash off (you can’t sell it to unless I can remove it within seconds).

Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil and collection of gold accessories
Beauty products: Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel,Anastasia Beverly Hills Black Eyeliner, Gold earrings

NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm ($28): this is extremely hydrating. It goes on smoothly and adds beautiful natural color/gloss to my lips. I just really hope NARS doesn’t discontinue them…EVER. Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel ($22): even though I significantly cut back on wearing makeup everyday, I never leave home without fixing my brows with this gel. Super light, non flaky and keeps my brows in place for over 18 hours.

Anastasia Beverly Hills black eyeliner, NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm, AESOP Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm and gold accessories

Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color ($18): I didn’t think I was ever going back to black eyeliner until I was introduced to this one. It stays on through both day and night. It goes on incredibly smoothly. I love how pigmented it is. Doesn’t fade. Doesn’t budge. AESOP Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm ($31): Instagram bloggers sold this one to me. It ended up on my Holiday Gift Guide for 2018. Smells like mandarin oranges with hint of rosemary. Weightless and not sticky. It’s the best hand cream yet, and trust me because I’ve tried dozens.

9 Eye Cream Products I’m Looking Forward to Try

They say the skin around your eyes ages 39 times faster than the skin on your face. If you believe in that like I do, then you know we need all the help we can get when it comes to caring for this delicate area. Healthy skin starts from the within, but when it comes to wrinkles, a good eye cream can help. What I believe in is: prevention. The earlier we start to take care of our eye area the better. With that said, here are some of the most promising eye creams that I have been wanting to try, and trust me when I say I wouldn’t pick just anything:

Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum $69

Helps skin around eyes look firmer and smoother.

Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream $48

Gives your eyes a well-rested look.

Screen Shot 2018-12-07 at 9.25.33 PM
100 Percent Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream $26

Makes your eye area look more youthful and awake.

Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream
Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream $65

It feels like this list could last me a year or longer, but I can’t wait to try them all.

My Green Peel Experience

My Green Peel Experience

My first-ever green peel experience was an EXPERIENCE, to say the least. I honestly did not research much about green peels before giving it a shot. My reason for trying it was because of all the good things I heard about it from friends who had done it in the past. First, let me start by talking about the purpose of this beauty procedure.

The goal of a green peel is to help renew your skin completely. It is an herbal massage that deeply exfoliates your skin and infuses it with nutrients so that your skin gets a fresh start. The formula has a mixture of eight carefully-selected herbs containing enzymes, minerals and vitamins, which are rubbed into the skin. When the peel is done, you are basically left with a new layer of skin.

The process: the mixture is intensely massaged into your skin for about 3-8 minutes (no more, no less), according to the esthetician. The massaging action combined with this mixture was painful. I am not going to lie because I wish someone would have told me that beforehand so I knew what to expect. Needless to say, I could only handle three minutes of it. After the ‘exfoliation’, a cooling sheet mask is applied to calm your skin for about five minutes. The worst part about the experience was probably removing the mixture and having the moisturizer and BB cream applied. When the mixture is removed, your skin is raw, which is what causes the discomfort.

img_6848

Aftercare: I couldn’t wash my face for three days in order to let the mask do its work. Once your face is washed, any remaining product is removed, which is why it’s important you let it sit approximately three days. Yes, you got it right: no face washing for 3 days!

Is it worth it? I would say yes. It wasn’t the most enjoyable procedure to go through, but I would do anything for my skin to look more clear and glowy. If this is something you have been considering I suggest to look up results from the green peel, you will see how it drastically changes people’s skin for the better.

Love,

Caroline

Everything Your Mom Didn’t Tell You about Antioxidants

Everything Your Mom Didn’t Tell You about Antioxidants

One of the most important ingredients I like to see in my skincare products are antioxidants. That is why I picked out this PM Serum by 100% Pure. I’ve gone through the whole bottle, which in my book means the product turned out to be worth the money. My favorite part was how lightweight it felt and how glowy it made my skin look the next morning. ⁣⁣But today is not about reviewing a product. Instead, we’re going to talk about antioxidants and why they are so beneficial for your skin. Here are some key reasons why:⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌱 it has been proven that antioxidants are your dominant weapon against free radicals, which are your skin’s worst enemy; ⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌱 they promote an even skin tone and firm your skin; ⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌱 people with acne-prone skin will find them useful for treating scars; ⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌱 antioxidants are essential anti-aging ingredients in skincare (this is my favorite part);⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌱 they protect your skin from UV rays;⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m a huge believer that it’s not only about the quality of the skincare products we use, but that it’s also important to watch what we consume. You can find antioxidants not only in skincare products, but also in your grocery bag. Blueberries, red peppers, avocado, watermelon, green leafy vegetables, nuts, oranges, sweet potatoes and green or black tea are a great place to start. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

Love,

Nadia

Weightless Multi-Tasking Hydrating Facial Oil

Weightless Multi-Tasking Hydrating Facial Oil

       If you are looking for a new skincare product and you have dry skin, I think I might have something for you. I was introduced to Biossance by a friend. She got a sample of 100% Squalane Oil, but her skin is on the oily side and I guess it didn’t work out for her…lucky me!

Multi-Tasking Facial Oil That Works for Dry and Oily Skin

     I will be honest. My first impression from the get go is that their products are on the pricey side, but they are so worth it. The full-size bottle of Squalane Oil goes for $58. I know, it’s a bit crazy…but the best part is that they offer a sample size for $14. That sample will be enough for you to figure out if this product is worth the investment for you.

     Side note: they are offering 25% off on all of the products until August 28, 2018 when shop through their website. Also, you get $15 for referring a friend. So hurry up!

Oil that Hydrates Face, Body and Hair

    So what’s squalane? I love brands that educate you about their products and the ingredients they use. The Biossance website explains:

You may or may not have heard of squalane, but your skin has. The human body produces its own version (known as squalene), but the amount made and retained in the skin decreases over time. It peaks in our teens and then starts to decline in our 20’s, leaving skin rough, dry and vulnerable.

        After using it for about two weeks on a daily basis, my skin felt moisturized and that annoying dullness has disappeared. This product has given life and glow to my skin, which is so hard to achieve for a girl with dry skin. The good news: This oil is meant for all skin types, so don’t let the word “oil” scare you off. It doesn’t contain fragrance, which is really something you must watch out for when choosing your next skincare product. It’s also non-toxic and hypoallergenic.

Facial Oil that Instantly Hydrates and Locks in Essential Moisture.

Just a few tips:

  • You can use it for adding moisture to your cuticles, as well as your hands;
  • You can add a drop or two of the oil to your body lotion if your skin feels extra dry; 
  • Same tip goes for your hair;

     My routine with it is pretty simple: I use this oil by itself at night and also in the morning before applying my moisturizer. Pretty certain this product will stay on my shelf for a long time!

7 Tips to Help Your Photoshoots Run Smoothly

7 Tips to Help Your Photoshoots Run Smoothly

     You would think that being a blogger puts me in a category of people that feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Photoshoots are my least favorite part of the blogging journey, but it happens to be the most important one sooooo long story short, there are some things you simply must do as a blogger. The day we decided to launch Next Destination: Style, we also made the decision to hire a photographer. And here are just a few reasons why: 

  • I personally don’t know much about cameras, and that would have just added another thing that I would have needed to learn to start blogging. Hiring a photographer simply saved me lots of time.
  • Quality photography is something you must invest in if you are trying to make your blog look professional, and trust me, people will notice the difference.
  • Photographers are professionals, and the pictures they take are better quality than photos taken by your annoyed friends or a family member.

Here are some tips for making your photoshoots go as smoothly as possible:

       1. Decide on the mood. Photography is an art. Remember that every picture will have its own spirit and a message that it sends. Think of what you are trying to show off. Do you want to highlight certain pieces of your outfit, the location you are shooting, travel vibes? In this photoshoot, I wore this purple scarf in a couple of different ways while also trying to channel a California vibe here in Chicago, which I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish without my amazing photographer: Lua Photo.

Circle Woven Crossbody Bag from Urban Outfitters

Hoop Earrings from Urban Outfitters Trends of 2018Photography: Lua Photo; BDG Essential Mid-Rise Denim Shorts (only $49); Uo Poppy Pointelle Turtleneck Sweater (only $49); Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top (only $50); Large Hollow Hoop Earring (only $18); Circle Woven Crossbody Bag (only $34); Paisley Silky Mini Square Scarf (only $14)

    2. Location. In my book, location comes even before the outfit. The backdrop and scenery sets a particular mood that I use as inspiration when shopping for pieces to create my looks. But that’s not it. Scouting locations beforehand will save you time and money. Looking for locations at the last minute can be pretty stressful. You might get lucky and find someplace that is insta-worthy and cute along the way, but it’s better to plan ahead. That’s the best tip to consider when you are planning to get some shots in a local restaurant, hotel or coffee shop. Trust my experience: Call and ask first before strolling in with a professional photographer because some places won’t allow that. It’s also a great opportunity to ask if you can come in before the place opens up, which will give you much more freedom to get creative with the place. Plus, doing so means there is no need to photoshop people out of the image later on.

Side note: At the end of the day, it’s important that what you are wearing flows with the color scheme and, of course, the background of your location.

Stand out in these chunky, hollow hoop earrings, found only at Urban Outfitters. Shiny, metal open-ended hoop that puts a bold spin on a classic look.

         3. Look for inspiration. Time to scroll through Pinterest boards and save some pins for inspiration. It’s not only useful for you, but also for your photographer. A couple of days before the shoot, I shared some boards on Pinterest with mine and I think that was helpful for both of us to get an idea of the style and mood that we were going for. There is nothing more important than being able to translate your vision to the photographer, and what could be more helpful than saved Instagram pictures or Pinterest boards.

      4. Prepare you looks in advance. Staying organized is the key to success. Pull your looks together the day before. Take some pictures showing all of the details of your outfit, including shoes and jewelry. You would be surprised how many looks you can achieve by simply switching, adding or removing some accessories. And what is the best way to remember all of that when you have only two seconds to change outfits? The easiest way is to have it all stored on your phone. I would suggest creating a catalog of looks, which you may even want to share with your photographer so they can envision what you’re going for as well. You would be surprised how serious some photographers are about their job.

Side note: If you are thinking of changing your hair for one of the photos or adding a bright lipstick, for example, try to do that during the last few pictures. I have learned this lesson the hard way from trying to find makeup remover in the middle of nowhere in NYC at 8:00 am.

     5. Practice your poses. Find what fits you as well as the look you have created. If you’ve been inspired by poses  on Pinterest and the like, test those out in front of a mirror beforehand. I always take some quick snapshots ahead of time to see what I will look like in those poses. Keep in mind that photoshoots can get chaotic, and it’s easy to forget what you wanted to achieve in your photos while remembering your best angles.

      6. Bring makeup and hair products along. You will need to retouch after you switch from one look to the next or when you have to pull your hair up. That’s when hairspray really comes in handy, especially if your hair tends to  frizzy easily. Welcome to Chicago.

Finished with lettuce-edge trim detailing throughout.Photography: Lua Photo; BDG Essential Mid-Rise Denim Shorts (only $49); Uo Poppy Pointelle Turtleneck Sweater (only $49); Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top (only $50); Large Hollow Hoop Earring (only $18); Circle Woven Crossbody Bag (only $34); Paisley Silky Mini Square Scarf (only $14)

      7. Involve a friend. It is always nice to have someone who can help carry bags around (haha). A third party can also be very helpful for the photographer when she/he needs to get the light game on, so promise your friend two professional pictures or even drinks afterwards…few friends can say no to that.

        Once you do more photoshoots, you will find what works best for you. The only thing I can’t promise is that it will be easy, but it will certainly be fun. But hey, remember that nothing that is worth doing comes easy. Leave your tips in the comments below! Maybe we can learn from you as well!

Jumpsuits Are My New Summer Love

Jumpsuits Are My New Summer Love

        If we had to pick our favorite outfits of this spring/summer so far, not one but several pieces from  would have made it on the list. We learned about this online shop from a friend, and even got to meet the owner who just recently launched her website. Danielle, just like the two of us, has decided to pursue one of her passions: fashion. She has always believed that clothes can really help people express their individual personalities: “I love how an outfit can completely change a person’s mood or self-esteem with the addition of a pair of bold heels or a colorful bag. I want to sell clothing that makes women feel confident! Mixing that with my career in social media advertising has brought us here!” Her online store was officially launched April 15th, 2018 and we are here to share some of our favorite looks that we put together from ShopSocialGal:

        1. The Center of Attention Stripe Jumpsuit. Trust me, she called it this for a reason. It’s hard to tell you how many compliments I received when I wore it, but there was definitely a whole bunch. It’s certainly one of the best pieces I got to try on. The fabric is extremely soft and light. I combined it with this straw bag from Zara and these Rachelle-2 Suede Sandals from Vince.

Rompers Is My New Summer Loveimg_0002

      2. Fit For a Queen Navy Romper Maxi. There are two things that make this piece unique. First, it’s a short romper that is hidden beneath a full, long skirt, and second, it has an open back. So cute! It has a beautiful v-neck that allowed me to show off some of my favorite pieces of jewelry so far this summer. Could it get any better?!

Blue and White Striped Romper

     3. My Lucky Peonies Floral Off the Shoulder Dress. Like any good clothing store, ShopSocialGal stocked up on some cute floral dresses for summer, like this one. It is my absolute favorite, and I think the off-the-shoulder part must have something to do with it. Florals will never go out of style, that’s something that is guaranteed. I love to pair these types of dresses with my “Lavette” Perforated Peep Toe Bootie from Vince Camuto, especially when I’m trying to keep my look casual.

           4. Dance the Night Away Navy Romper. Who doesn’t have more than one jumpsuit in their closet, if not more than that? I love a good jumpsuit. They’re fast, easy and stylish.This one specifically was so cute and comfortable to wear. It would be perfect to wear to an outdoor event or street fest. You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with some flats. The jumpsuit really stands out, which means that you don’t need many accessories. Perfect for summer days or nights!

        ShopSocialGal is constantly adding more items to the collection, so there is always something new and on trend available! Danielle eventually wants to expand the store into bags, shoes, and jewelry. Possibly her own graphic tee line as well! All things that are comfortable and cute. We are so excited for this!

Happy Shopping!

That One Hair Oil that Made My Hair Look Picture Perfect

That One Hair Oil that Made My Hair Look Picture Perfect

       My story with Bumble and Bumble began the day I decided to make an appointment at the salon to cut my hair short. I just felt so bored with it at the time. After scrolling through Instagram on a daily (actually, more like an hourly) basis, I felt like my hair was lacking that picture-perfect shine all of the celebrities have.

Bumble and Bumble Invisible Hair Oil

       I had no idea whether cutting my hair would fix that issue, but I was definitely on a mission to get that haircut…that is, until I walked into Sephora and asked a consultant to show me the product that ended up bringing life and glow back to my hair. He handed me Bumble and Bumble hair oil. I fell in love and we have been together ever since.

Product that Makes My Hair Look Picture Perfect    Here are just a few reasons why you should invest in it yourself, and when I say invest, it’s because it is a bit on the pricey side…so listen up:

  • It contains six different kinds of oils that are very beneficial for your hair;
  • It doesn’t weigh down hair like some other hair oils tend to do;
  • The day you try this oil will be the day you say goodbye to split ends;
  • If you have curly hair, that probably means you have a close relationship with hot tools, and it’s no secret they cause hair damage. This oil will protect your hair from getting damaged while heat styling;
  • It will make your hair smell great even though it absorbs quickly;
  • I love using it on dry hair too since it helps to tame that annoying frizz;
  • A little goes a long way. I bought it about six months ago and have only gone through ¼ of the bottle;

Fast Absorbing Hair Oil      Friendly reminder: avoid using too much of the oil so your hair doesn’t get greasy. And please, please, please don’t put it on your roots! I’ve heard some people actually do that. Anyways, if you have been struggling to find a great hair oil that will keep your hair healthy, soft and moisturized, I think I may have solved that one for you today. I hope I did 🙂 

Your NDS Duo,

Trending Spring Piece: Trench Coat

Trending Spring Piece: Trench Coat
     Good morning! Warmer weather is on its way! Could you think of any better combination than a trench coat and jeans for street style in spring?

     Pair it with different shoes and tops to get a variety of stylish looks. Sometimes it almost feels like an accessory: since that one piece will make you look trendy and fashionable at the same time.

      Don’t forget about sunglasses because details in fashion matter more than anything. You can find similar coat here, glossy boots from Vince Camuto here  and…. my favorite one piece that I wear with everything from Naked Wardrobe here. They just restocked so yes I bought another one. Currently I have two in my closet now. OH WELLLL.

Happy Wednesday!

Your NDS Duo,
