On choosing the beauty biz

“I grew up in Puerto Rico, and makeup is a big part of my culture; I adore it. I moved to New York to get my MBA and because I wanted to work with the big guys in the beauty business.” 

On her product picks

“Red lips are my signature. So my must-have is Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Chunky Cherry [$16; clinique.com].” 

On getting dressed

“My favorite piece is a purple Prada jacket. Everyone in New York always wears black, but I like a bit of color.”

On her antiaging strategy 

“Jogging keeps me in shape. I also exfoliate my face twice a day with a washcloth, use Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus [$67; clinique.com] and wear black eyeliner to keep my eyes looking sharp. Also, I laugh a lot.”. I moved to New York to get my MBA and because I wanted to work with the big guys in the beauty business.”
