Kate Moss: 'Lila tells me how to do my make-up'

Kate Moss: 'Lila tells me how to do my make-up'

Kate Moss' daughter Lila appears to be the real make-up expert in the family..

The model, Rimmel make-up's ambassador, gave a rare interview to celebrate the launch of a set of special-edition lip colours and nail gels, a 15th anniversary collection for the brand. Kate has been the brand’s muse since 2001, and also fronts the brand’s latest campaign, shot by Solve Sundsbo.

Despite her status as a style icon Kate admits she takes advice from her 13-year-old daughter, who is quite the makeup expert and even does her makeup for her.

“She knows how to curl her lashes now and she does her brow,” Kate smiled to WWD. “She tells me off for not doing it: ‘It’s about the shape of the brow’ and I’m like ‘Really?’ She tells me what to do instead of the other way round. She does my makeup sometimes, which is hilarious.”

However, Kate has generally plumped for a more low-maintenance look when it comes to beauty but after getting some tips on how to apply it, she admits she enjoys wearing more.

“I use more makeup now then I did before,” Kate revealed. “I can do eyes and makeup in general more. I do like my own lipstick as well.” The new make-up range includes lasting finish lipstick by Kate, which features six shades such as My Nude, Retro Red, Rock ‘n’ Roll Nude, Muse Red, Soho Nude and Idol Red.

Lipstick has always been one of Kate's beauty must-haves. And like Lila, who is "obsessed with makeup", she enjoyed wearing it from a young age. One of her first purchases was a gold lipstick she bought when she was eight to wear to a school disco.

Kate was pictured on Wednesday night (22Jun16) at a star-studded summer party at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The model looked typically stylish in a sheer, floral maxi dress, with a leopard print bodysuit underneath. However during the interview she admitted she prefers the catwalk to the red carpet, but getting her make-up done by her "go-to girl", makeup guru Charlotte Tilbury, helps to keep her calm before an event.

“I don’t usually have it done,” she said. “But if I am going to a red carpet, a friend, Charlotte Tilbury, does it. We just laugh and then I don’t get nervous. It is more like hanging out with my friend.”

As well as the lipstick collection, the anniversary collection includes the super gel nail polish which will be available in three hues: Guilty Pleasure, Boho-licious and Rock ‘n’ Sparkle.
