She feels most beau­ti­ful when…

“I am healthy, or in a good mood!”

Nat­u­ral foods over oral sup­ple­ments.

“While I take mul­ti­vi­ta­mins daily, I pre­fer to con­sume nat­u­ral foods for nu­tri­ents – I eat a lot of fruit.”

She uses face masks re­li­giously.

“I use dif­fer­ent types of fa­cial masks at least four to five times a week: Kose Sekkisei Clear Whiten­ing Mask, $35 (80g), to re­move black­heads and de­bris twice a week, and Sekkisei Lo­tion Mask, $7 (15 masks) or Sekkisei Essence Mask, $90 (six sheets), to hy­drate deeply at least three times a week. If I have no time for masks, I ap­ply Sekkisei Lo­tion, $82 (200ml), $121 (360ml), $148 (500ml), be­fore I sleep and be­fore putting on makeup in the morn­ing.”

Favourite makeup look.

four to ve times a week.” – Ariel Lin, Tai­wanese ac­tresssinger and spokesper­son for Ja­panese cos­met­ics brand, Kose.

dif­fer­ent looks for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions, I pre­fer a more nat­u­ral makeup look that high­lights ra­di­ant skin.”

She can’t get enough of…

“Kose Sekkisei Lo­tion. I have been us­ing this since I first tried it when I was in high school. It re­freshes my skin in­stantly, and leaves it smooth and ra­di­ant.”

When strapped for time…

“I use Sekkisei White BB Cream SPF40/PA+++, $39 (30g), for an even-toned, ra­di­ant com­plex­ion, Esprique Last­ing Eye­liner (Smooth Off), $34, to de­fine my eyes, and Esprique Bright Last­ing Rouge, $39, to fin­ish my look and keep my lips hy­drated.”

If she could only use one makeup prod­uct for the rest of her life, it would be…

“a liq­uid eye­liner.”

She likes musky scents. Best way to re­lieve stress.

“Musky scents soothe my senses and put me in a re­lax­ing mood. I think they smell pretty sexy, too.”

“I usu­ally go swim­ming to re­lease stress and ten­sion.”

How she stays healthy and youth­ful.

“I jog quite reg­u­larly, and at­tend yoga and dance classes that are part of my school cur­ricu­lum (she is do­ing a film­mak­ing course in Lon­don).”
