What keeps you busy?
I am a mother of two boys, one in high school and one in grade school, who have different demands and needs, so that keeps me preoccupied. I also maintain my seven-year-old business, Fille et Fils Scent Therapy. I started with three scents and it has developed into room sprays, DEET-free anti-mosquito colognes, eau de toilette, cologne, and aromatherapy sprays and oils. I’m also a property sales and management associate at List Sotheby’s International Realty, where we manage, sell, and move properties.

Daily beauty regimen?
I believe less is more. I just make sure I wash my face with water, hydrate, and sleep. When I travel, I use Clarins’ Beauty Flash balm and beauty oil. When I have to wear makeup, I use cleansing oil from Shu Uemura or Celeteque. I also believe in a few Japanese products: Shiseido AquaLabel gel cream for hydration and Anessa sunblock.


What is in your makeup bag?
I have an eyelash curler, Sephora lip gloss, M.A.C bronzer and shimmer for cheeks, YSL concealer, and Chanel eyeliner.

What is your evening makeup look?
I use a darker shade of eyeliner and gloss and my shimmer.

Most memorable beauty faux pas?
I don’t remember any—but maybe that’s because I refuse to remember!

What is your personal definition of beauty?
Beauty is simple. Beauty is happiness.

How do you take care of your skin?
No regular treatments, athough I see my dermatologist and friend Dr. Alma Perez de Leon every two years for a mild glycolic peel.

How do you maintain your physique?
You are what you eat—I avoid pork and beef and try to eat healthy. That means more fish, more protein, less glucose, less sugar, and less fat. I also try to work out four to five times a week: Pilates, or riding, which is my real passion. If I can’t ride, I hit the gym for a 30-minute sweat.

Some say first impressions are everything. What impression do you hope to leave through your personal look?
There’s a bible verse that I want to quote: “Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised,” from Proverbs 31:30.

How do you relax?
A regular massage. Riding also relaxes me, assuming I’m not in training mode.

How would you define luxury?
I believe luxury has evolved from acquiring things to acquiring experiences. Luxury could be watching a beautiful sunset, listening to a song that moves you, understanding a piece of art in a museum, reading a book that interests you, or visiting a new city.

What would you never compromise on?
My trust in the Lord.

Beauty icons?
Grace Kelly, because of her classic and timeless beauty and style. She lived her life with a purpose as she promoted both moral and physical integrity in her nonprofit organizations. She always exuded natural beauty with hardly any makeup. And Gal Gadot—I believe in women with a heart who exude strength and physical power, aside from being just a pretty face.

Best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Sleep. Hydrate. Sleep.

What are you most grateful for?
My parents, who are now both in heaven, for what they have instilled in me—to trust in the Lord always. My supportive husband and my two boys more than anything. Motherhood is the most challenging yet fulfilling job in the world.
