A big, bold, beauty launch to kick off 2022 - has there ever been a better time? Judging by the reception Charlotte Tilbury's much anticipated brand new foundation, Beautiful Skin, has received, we're guessing not!

The campaign is typically glamourous and feels a level up compared to anything the brand has done in a while, with videos and photos starring the world’s biggest supermodels like Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn flooding our social timelines.

However, the Beautiful Skin campaign star I was most excited to see was our very own Irish supermodel (and Kendall Jenner lookalike), Kelly Horrigan.

It’s easy to see why the 26-year-old was chosen to model in this particular product launch, her skin is absolutely incredible and she simply oozes supermodel chic. We caught up with Kelly to find out more.

Congratulations starring in this campaign alongside such huge names! How did it feel to be part of it all?
Thank you! I was so thrilled to be part of such an exciting launch. A foundation is such a huge product for any brand so it was really flattering to be booked on this one. When I heard Kate was the face of Beautiful Skin, I was even more delighted to be involved.

What was involved in this job?
I met with the team in London back in the summer, but didn't find out I was booked until September when I was back in Ireland so I flew over to London to shoot. Flying somewhere for a job always adds to the excitement, I think. The amazing global artist Kelechi did my makeup and we shot for the day, a mixture of still images and video. It was actually a really relaxed shoot!

What was the team working on it like?
The team at CT are amazing to work with, this is the second time I shot for the brand in London and it's honestly such a dream. The artists are all incredibly talented so it's so inspiring being around them.

How did this campaign compare to your other usual jobs?
Beauty is always my favourite kind of work to shoot, and the fact that it's such a huge brand makes it hard to compare to it any other jobs I've done before. It's a real pinch me moment whenever I think about it, I feel so lucky to have shot for such a gorgeous brand. It will be a hard one to beat, I think.

Have you met Charlotte or any of the other stars in this campaign?
Charlotte has done my makeup twice which is absolutely insane, I still can't believe that! She is gas and such a character. She's exactly what you'd expect from such an icon. She's so kind and really generous too, I was sent home with lots of beautiful makeup to try.

How long have you been modelling and how did you get into the industry?
I've been modelling for 11 years, I started when I was 15 after being scouted on the street by an agent. I met with the agency the following week, they signed me and it all started from there! After a few years working in Ireland I went to some other markets like London and Milan.

What’s next for Kelly? What would be your dream campaign or job to work on?
Who knows! I'm very much a go-with-the-flow kind of person, I think you have to be in this type of industry. I love the surprise element of my work so I'm happy to see where it takes me. My dream job would be a stunning perfume campaign or skincare, I would love that!
