REASON 3: SHE USES HER POWER FOR GOOD.

Charlotte is passionate about promoting the positive effects makeup can have and she's made it her mission to help other women feel confident, beautiful and empowered. "I know for myself that if I'm lacking energy, putting on a little makeup can genuinely turn my mood around," she says.

REASON 4: SHE THINKS OF EVERYTHING.

As a working mum, Charlotte truly understands modern life on the go. She keeps her application techniques simple and offers fun how-to videos on everything from creating party or office looks to covering up rosacea. In other words, she gets it.

REASON 5: SHE'S FROM AN ENCHANTED ISLAND.

Charlotte lives in London but grew up in Ibiza, the jet-set playground off the coast of Spain. "Ibiza is such an incredible place," she says. "The sunsets are spectacular, and there's magic in its waters—a magnetic pull that once lured in Ulysses and gives the whole island a spiritual and intoxicating feel."

REASON 6: SHE'S DOWN TO EARTH BUT HIGH ON HEELS.

"I am always in my heels. Psychologically, I feel that when I'm in flats, my personality is flat too! I'm someone who has heels for mountains, heels for the beach and heeled Wellingtons. Name a situation and I guarantee you, I have a pair of heels for it."

REASON 7: SHE HAS GREAT TASTE.

"I love clothes and shopping—when I get the time! Some of my favorite designers are Dolce&Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro and Maje."

REASON 8: SHE LOVES KIDS (AND DOGS).

"Whenever I have free time I love to spend it at home with my beautiful boy, Flynn, who is 4. I love having dinner with friends and having lots of fun, but my son is always number one! I also love my dog, Minnie, who used to belong to my boyfriend, but she's mine now."

REASON 9: SHE EATS.

"Everyone knows I take my food seriously. I like a cooked breakfast in typical English style—granary bread with a poached egg, bacon, tomatoes and some avocado. I also have a soft spot for anything sweet—honeycomb ice cream in particular."
