After 8 weeks of auditions and challenges in SK-II’s Beauty Bound Season Two, Malaysia’s very own Fairuz Nadia Anura (@innermaverick on Instagram and YouTube) rises above hundreds of hopefuls and was crowned by Chiara Ferragni, Global Fashion Icon & judge of Beauty Bound Season Two.

Culminating in Okinawa, Japan, the final battle saw nine aspiring beauty creators pit themselves against each other in a series of heart-thumping challenges set in the wild. At the end of two grueling days, Nadia eventually won the hearts of fans and judges with her creativity, charisma and conviction.

To be named the winner of Beauty Bound, contestants had to embark on their final challenge – an epic beauty adventure in the depths of the Okinawan jungle in Japan. Contestants had to complete a variety of beauty social challenges with the brand’s iconic Facial Treatment Essence and create a 60 second #FaceTheWild video inspired by the films of SK-II’s latest campaign—SK-II Face The Wild | Face the Camera Extreme Expedition series with National Geographic.

Nadia walks away with an all expenses paid trip to a SK-II global event, a year’s worth of SK-II products as well as professional video equipment, networking opportunities with top beauty creators and SK-II content collaboration opportunities, a one week exchange program in the U.S. hosted by industry experts and a pass into the exclusive SK-II Global Beauty Circle.
