The beauty boss chats to Chloe Brennan about her favourite people, places and things.
My boyfriend, John. He is my rock and absolute number-one supporter in everything. Regardless of him being busy with his own work, he is there whenever I need him or when things get tough in work. I'd never tell him this, of course, but he really is the best.
When I was four, we spent Christmas in the Lakeside area in the UK. I have this memory of me being in the snow, with a beautiful Labrador dog, having the time of my life. My birthday is also Christmas Eve, so I just love that time of year.
The moment of the day
My first cup of tea. It could be first thing or the afternoon before I get a second cup, but I actually think tea heals my soul. It's the one thing I would never give up!
Magic by Coldplay. I remember the first time I heard it; it was just after Chris and Gwyneth's split was announced, and I was bawling like a loser. Honestly though, I think I would have it as the song I'd walk down the aisle to - not that I'm planning my wedding or anything, but in 10 years' time, that's the plan.
The Holiday. Jude Law and Cameron Diaz are a match made in heaven.
Anything with a good, thrilling twist in it. Recently, I have flown through The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena and Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris.
My mum, Clare. She is the funniest
- unknown to her! - most hard-working and caring person ever. It's just the two of us, and we are so close.
I definitely feel most comfortable in casual/dressy outfits - high-waisted jeans, boots and a top, and I am there!
Belts. I think they're such a handy thing to have to change an outfit up, or pull you in.
I am a sucker for gadgets, but the one that I would be lost without is my iPhone. I also deeply cherish my laptop, but my iPhone is the main one.
A glass of Prosecco - can't beat it.
Roisin, my bestie. No one in this world can make me laugh as much as she does - I mean 'ugly crying face' laughing. I've known her since I was teeny, and we're still so close. She is basically my sister, and I don't know what I would do without her.
Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ballymena, Co Antrim - I worked there for a weekend, and the setting was gorgeous. I believe the spa is, too.
The beauty product
Naturally, I am biased, so I have to say my Sculpted [make-up] palette, but I genuinely use this daily to sculpt my face and give me a bit of life.
I also double up and use it on my eyes, too - it's so handy.
I am lucky to have travelled to lots of places. As much as I love heat, I do love a skiing holiday, because there's something nice about being active while away - I couldn't sit on a beach for days.
The piece of advice
Work hard and stay true to yourself. It's very easy to become influenced in a busy industry such as the beauty one, so I believe that you should work your ass off, but never compromise on your beliefs, and always stay true to you and your gut. That's what your business will be built on, and that's what will help you to grow and evolve.
The pet hate
Incompetence, or when people are slow at things - patience wouldn't be my best trait.
I love playing tennis - not professionally, but it gets me out during the day and away from work for a bit.
Margot Robbie. I actually fancy her.
A digestive biscuit dipped into tea. I don't think the world has ever seen a better combination.
