'Irish women are the best in the world when it comes to make-up' - Charlotte Tilbury
Celebrity make-up artist and businesswoman Charlotte Tilbury revealed she loves the way Irish women wear make-up.
Speaking at a make-up masterclass in Brown Thomas, the beauty guru to the stars and fashion elite said she loves that Irish women aren't afraid to be daring when it comes to make-up.
"I think Irish women are the best in the world when it comes to make-up," she said.
"They love make-up, they celebrate it and they know how to wear it."
Charlotte, whose grandmother hails from Kilkenny, said she feels an "affinity" with Ireland.
"All the Irish genes came out in me," she said.
"I love it though. Look at my hair. I really feel like my hair colour is such a big part of who I am."
The founder of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty has worked with everyone from Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Emily Ratajkowski, Kim Kardashian, Amal Clooney and probably every glamorous A-lister you can think of.
While she loves bold make-up statements, the beauty artist admitted she isn't a fan of "Instagram brows" - eyebrows that are overdrawn with harsh lines.
"It may work on camera but it doesn't translate well in natural light. It makes people look harsh, angry... it's not a good look."
Her advice is "less is more".
"When filling in eyebrows always go a shade lighter than your natural hair colour to make brows look as natural as possible," she said.
