I Do My Makeup on the Train—Mascara, Blush, Lipstick

Isabel Ramirez

I’m a receptionist in a fashion showroom. It’s cool. I get to be around fashion all day, every day. I got to take a dress home that Kim Kardashian wore.

I’m originally from New York City. I moved to L.A. less than a year ago. The traffic here sucks but the sunshine is great. And the public transit is cleaner than in New York City. I do my makeup on the train—that way I get to sleep longer. I do my mascara, blush, lipstick. People look at me when I’m doing my makeup, but I’m used to it.
