“My number-one beauty tip is to practice at home whatever you’re going to be wearing. Don’t just put something on because you think it’s the look of the day or the season. Especially when everyone is saying there’s a look for the season, try it out and see if it really looks good on you and be good at it before you go out there wearing it.”

“My beauty tip is bronzer. Regardless of whether you’re light-skinned or dark-skinned, wear bronzer. Put it on the periphery of the face, the décolletage, and the cheeks. It always makes you look like you just came from Ibiza! As for my fitness tip: Corsets!”

“My number-one beauty tip is to mix Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with foundation. It just turns every foundation into the most sheer amazingness. For fitness, I do a lot of yoga. I love yoga. I think it’s so good for your mind and body, as well.”

“My beauty secret is drinking a lot of water. I drink a lot of water and then I moisturize. Otherwise, I wish I did more fitness. I’m not a fanatic. I don’t think it’s very becoming for a woman to have a body like a man’s, which is super cut. I prefer to be a little more on the softer side, so I just keep it light with a lot of walking, yoga, and an occasional jog. But even that’s a lot of work!”

“Wear some mascara, give attention to your eyebrows, and also take care of your lips. I like Chanel mascara because it has the darkest black. For my eyebrows, I brush them through to keep them groomed and in place. And for my lips, I wear lip balm. I use Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. It’s really helpful during fashion week. If I keep up with these three things, I feel like I look very fresh, young, and natural.”

“For beauty, get enough sleep. That’s the most important thing. I like to go to bed early, so I average about seven hours a night. For fitness, I work out every day. I think that’s also good for your balance and your mind. I do Tracy Anderson and SoulCycle.”

“Moisturize a lot. During the morning, I tend to mix Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15. I do that throughout the day and it really, really helps. For fitness, mix it up and always remain active. I mix boxing with cardio and pilates. If I’m not busy or working, I’ll work out every day. If I am busy, I’ll try to at least sneak in 30 minutes or try to work out every other day.”

“My number-one fitness tip is not to take yourself too seriously—not to go too crazy with anything. I think the simpler you do things, the better—like eating healthy and going to the gym just when you find the time. I feel like people really stress themselves out about fitness and I think that’s backward.”

“I really love a bold lip. It’s the first thing the eye sees. I always focus on other people’s lips, so a lipstick for me is very important. I love red. I think red really fits Asian people because it complements our skin and hair. It’s very easy to use a lipstick. If you need to rush or go to a party or something, you just use one lipstick and it can change your look. It’s also so easy to take off. If you like it, you use it, and if you don’t like it, you change it for another one.”

“Sleep well. I’d love to sleep for eight or nine hours if I could, but in reality I get six or seven. I don’t work out, but I started tap-dancing recently. That’s something where I can enjoy it and it’s still working out at the same time. I do it maybe once a month.”

“Moderation is key. I work out and eat good, healthy food—but sometimes I’ll eat a burger. If it were possible, I would eat burgers every day. But I am a good girl, so I’ll only do it once every two weeks. I prefer cheeseburgers most. For fitness, I like jogging. I would like to do some other sports, but I don’t have time with my job.”
