THE COMMERCIAL MODEL REVEALS HOW SHE KEEPS HER SKIN IMMACULATE AND ALWAYS CAMERA-READY.
WHAT KEEPS YOU BUSY?
I work in the tech industry, most recently helping Uber launch and grow its business here in the Philippines. When I’m not working, I try to travel as much as I can or learn something new—whether it’s a new language, or skills that will help me at work. Travel and education are two things I’m really passionate about.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR DAILY BEAUTY REGIMEN.
In the morning, I cleanse my face with Simple Micellar Water, a recent discovery that’s made a quite a difference on my skin. Then I alternate between Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate or Klairs Vitamin C Serum. Finally, I finish off with Supergoop sunscreen, Everyday Sunscreen for all over, and Clinique Superdefense Eye Cream for the eye area. I use Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm, which removes every trace of dirt and makeup. I don’t always use a treatment, but when I do it’s either the Glycolic Night Serum by Drunk Elephant or La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. I moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different
Meeting new people often inspires me. I’m lucky to be exposed to a lot of smart, forward-thinking people because of the industry I’m in. At Uber, I worked with some of the most brilliant minds here and around the world. It was an amazing experience that forced me to push myself every day. Right now, my biggest focus is work, so that’s where most of my challenges are. I turned 30 recently, so it’s all about navigating my career and personal life and trying to find that ever-elusive balance.
THE BIGGEST LESSON WORK HAS TAUGHT YOU?
There’s a saying that if you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room. Another way of saying this is that it’s always good to be a little bit uncomfortable. If you aren’t, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough.
WHAT IMPRESSION DO YOU HOPE TO LEAVE THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL LOOK?
Overall, I’d like to give the impression that I’m put together. I like to think about my look as whatever allows me to bring my best self to the table.
