“The pow­er­ful mod­ern wo­man is some­one who lives life by her own rules, in­stead of so­ci­ety’s.” – Emily Quak

RIS­ING STAR

With over 4 mil­lion video views, 80,000 YouTube sub­scribers, and a com­pelling blog as well, Emily Quak has risen to on­line star­dom. “Beauty is con­fi­dence in your own skin, gen­eros­ity, and kind­ness,” she says. Such qual­i­ties em­anate from Emily, whose au­then­tic­ity and pos­i­tiv­ity have amassed a loyal fol­low­ing.

CON­FI­DENCE IS KEY

“When I feel in­se­cure, I rea­son with my­self; there’s no fear that logic can’t quell. It’s im­por­tant to keep calm and deal with things one day at a time. In terms of beauty, you can pull off any make-up look with a lit­tle bit of mod­i­fi­ca­tion to suit your fea­tures. Don’t let any­one tell you other­wise.” Her gor­geous hair, il­lu­mi­nated by mul­ti­coloured strands, is strik­ing and a bold beauty state­ment. “I go to Num­ber76 in Pub­lika to colour my hair—my colourist Lu­cas is amaz­ing!”

SKIN­CARE STA­PLES

Emily owes her ra­di­ant com­plex­ion to a ded­i­cated regime. “I do ev­ery­thing! I love Sim­plic­ité from Aus­tralia and In­n­is­free. SK-II’s Fa­cial Treat­ment Essence is a classic, and Bio­derma’s mi­cel­lar wa­ter is great. For foundation, Chanel is amaz­ing.” For a worth­while in­vest­ment, Emily sug­gests laser treat­ments. “You see amaz­ing re­sults in ev­ery as­pect. I wrote a blog post on my ex­pe­ri­ence at Merid­ian Clinic in Mont Kiara (Tel: 03-6203 6006 ).”

DIG­I­TAL RE­AL­ITY

“I won’t lie, neg­a­tive com­ments do af­fect me,” she ad­mits. “I sit there in shock and get an­gry, but then I calm my­self and just move on. When you put your­self out there, you open your­self up to at­tack, and that’s just the way life is. I think about the beau­ti­ful sup­port I’ve re­ceived, and I do what I do for them in­stead.”
