Camille Co @itscamil­leco

Home Base Manila, Philip­pines Age 27 Day Job Fash­ion de­signer In­sta­gram Fol­low­ers 309K

Camille Co’s Camille Tries to Blog is full of sparkling prose, beach­side fash­ion shoots and tips and tu­to­ri­als, so read­ing it al­most feels like talk­ing to your fash­ion-in­sider bestie. Did we men­tion she also de­signs her own RTW line, Co­ex­ist, and cre­ates cus­tom bridal gowns?

Her must-have beauty prod­ucts are... “Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Mois­tur­izer and YS L Touche Éclat. They’re re­ally light so my skin doesn’t feel tired af­ter a long day.” Her typ­i­cal beauty rou­tine is... “For day, I wash my face with Olay cleanser and then ap­ply a water­based sun­screen (Kanebo Dew Beauté UV Pro­tected Essence), fol­lowed by M.A.C Prep + Prime Skin Re­fined Zone. I don’t like wear­ing a lot of makeup when I don’t have events. We have hot and hu­mid weather, so the lighter the makeup the bet­ter.” When trav­el­ling, she packs... “Sun­screen. I used to hate wear­ing it, but when I no­ticed how many sunspots I got ev­ery time I came back from a trip, it be­came a musthave. While I per­son­ally love sun­tan­ning, the ma­jor­ity of women here pre­fer lighter skin, which is why whiten­ing prod­ucts are very pop­u­lar.” She shops for beauty prod­ucts at... “Hong Kong’s Lane Craw­ford and Sasa are a cou­ple of my favourites.” Her def­i­ni­tion of beauty is... “Con­fi­dence in one’s own skin.”

Nadya Hasan @the­fierce_­nay

Home Base Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emi­rates Age 25 Day Job Com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager In­sta­gram Fol­low­ers 110K

Nadya Hasan’s blog, The Fierce Di­aries, makes it look as if she’s peren­ni­ally on va­ca­tion... in a Fellini film. But she jug­gles this pas­sion pro­ject— an out­let to ex­press her per­sonal style and shine a spotlight on Emi­rates de­sign­ers—and a full­time job, all the while in four-inch Louboutins.

Her skin­care rou­tine is... “Morn­ing and night, I wash my face with the Braun Silk-Epil cleans­ing brush and then ap­ply Estée Lauder Ad­vanced Night Re­pair serum.” The beauty prod­ucts she can’t live with­out are... “M.A.C con­cealer, Sephora Mas­cara and a Tom Ford brow pen­cil. I think my eyes say it all. I can walk out [of the house] with­out full-cov­er­age foun­da­tion, but I [still] need to look alive. (I have bags un­der my eyes). Women in the UAE have so much pride in our de­fined eyes and big eye­brows, so putting the fo­cus on our best fea­tures comes nat­u­rally.” Her favourite lo­cal beauty rit­u­als are... “Most [Emi­rates women] try to hy­drate as much as we can. We have a very harsh cli­mate; it’s hu­mid and ex­tremely sunny in the sum­mer and hot all year round. So to avoid dry skin, we drink a lot of wa­ter. I per­son­ally drink a Bi­otin vi­ta­min sup­ple­ment and use sun­screen. We also take care of our hair by oil­ing it overnight and steam­ing it for about 20 to 30 min­utes to let it soak up the oil and hy­drate.” h
