    Instead of trying to look and sound different from every other artist, Yunalis Mat Zara'ai, better known as Yuna, is simply herself — and that is what sets her apart from the crowd.

    The Malaysia-born, Los Angeles-based singer has been making waves with her indie tunes, trademark cat-eye liner, and colorful hijabs since her 2008 debut. Recording with Pharrell Williams, performing at Lollapalooza, and going on a world tour, the 27-year-old has accomplished way more in six years than most of us dream about. Oh, and did we mention she also runs a fashion e-commerce site, November Culture? Yep, Yuna isn't just taking the music world by storm; she's out to dominate every category.

    So, when our friends at Secret asked her to keep a photo diary as she jetted from the West Coast to the Netherlands, France, and Singapore, we expected nothing less than inspiring behind-the-scenes snaps from the road. Keep reading to see all the action and get her take on song-writing, beauty essentials, and of course, her signature style.
