The loves of my life: Roisin Derrane, Make-up artist

From her mother to Ricky Gervais, the make-up artist outlines the loves of her life.
My mom - she is a lovely person who has always been so supportive throughout my life. She's also great company and a good laugh!
Growing up on the Aran Islands was really special. I think being surrounded by the sea and nature is amazing for any child, and we spent all our summers outside, being adventurous - also, I do remember a lot more sunshine
The moment of the day
I'm a morning person and I start work early, so I do love mornings with lots of coffee. I also enjoy the quietness of mornings and getting out for a walk before work
September by Earth, Wind & Fire, which is cheesy, I know, but really uplifting and great fun
I'm a vegetarian for years, and I try to do my bit for animals
It has to be two. I loved Little Miss Sunshine and The Shipping News. The first is bittersweet and hilarious, whereas The Shipping News is stunningly shot, with two of my favoruite actors, Kevin Spacey and Julianne Moore
I love animals, and have huge respect for those who are in the public eye and can highlight cruelty and get people talking. Actor Ricky Gervais is a huge supporter and animal-rights activist and I have been lucky enough to meet him in London - I was in awe
I love factual, so really what I mean is I love magazines, and anything related to beauty, health and fashion. But I loved The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger and still love the classic Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I love heading out, but I do not like being too dressed up, so at the moment I love Irish designer Fee G's latest collection of off-the-shoulder tops in hot pink and blue - so on-trend and perfect with cool jeans and heels. It fits in with Galway's bohemian style
A scarf by my good friend Ciara Silke, of ciarasilke.com, who is based in Galway. Her prints are so beautiful, but edgy. I have a black-and-white silk scarf of hers that works with everything and looks sophisticated with a casual outfit, and it's warm, too - bonus!
My iPhone and iPad
The pet hate
Loud people! I can be loud myself, I guess, but other people's loudness just gets my goat
The part of my body
Oh, not an easy one, but, at a push, my arms are not bad
My three sisters are my best friends, plus my school friend, Jel, who now lives in Edinburgh. We went to secondary school together on Aran and we have been besties ever since. I was her bridesmaid at her wedding in Edinburgh, and I still see her a lot
The beauty product
I've recently started using Kinvara Skincare and I am hooked. The newest product, Eye Wow! Eye Serum, is amazing for its anti-ageing and cooling roll-on application ball, I think a light moisturiser is all you need for daytime or under foundation, as there's enough moisture in most foundations, but an eye product is essential, always. A good brow is important, and I like benefit's brow zings eyebrow shaping kit
Dark chocolate - it's a kinda cool superfood now, it seems, which makes it much less of a guilty pleasure
Sardinia, Italy. It's such a great place and I have been going for years. Lots of Italians spend their holidays there, so the food and wine are amazing. I love islands, so Sicily is another favourite for its culture and history
The piece of advice
Respect all the creatures on the planet, and be more environmentally aware from an early age, which sounds more like a rant than advice
French red wine, and I love Champagne, like most people
I stayed in a Malmaison hotel in the UK a few times and loved its edginess and central location. I also love The House Hotel in Galway; it's in the middle of town and both the interior and atmosphere work
I love walking and I have recently got into gardening. I love it, as it's outside and it's great to totally switch off
Neachtain's in Galway, without a doubt. It has a great atmosphere, and it does a great range of wines also. There's a pizza counter next door and you can buy a slice for a couple of euros and have it in the bar with a drink; fab!
Sienna Miller for her cool style and I love her hair changes, and dream wardrobe
Sugar, I guess
That smell just after it rains in the summer; and the sea always reminds me of home. And, of course, all the Tom Ford perfumes
