Kim Kardashian's 'Wear Makeup to Bed' Inspiration: Beauty Guru Charlotte Tilbury

There are very, very few times Kim Kardashian West goes makeup-free (and when she does, it’s usually because someone talked her into it for a high fashion editorial). So who better to honor celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury at the inaugural InStyle Awards on Monday? In addition to admiring her skill and business-savvy, they also happen to share a habit of falling asleep in makeup.

Kardashian was on hand to present Tilbury with the Makeup Artist of the Year Award and in a speech honoring the winner, she listed all the characteristics she admires in the makeup guru.

“I first fell in love with her when she confessed that her husband has never seen her, ever, without makeup on,” Kardashian said during her speech, according to an InStyle video. “So she sleeps with makeup every single night, and the first time I met her, she told me the funniest story about how he walked in on her in the bathroom and she didn’t have her makeup on and she slammed the door, screaming. She’s my idol!”

Kardashian continued, “She believes that makeup makes you feel empowered and confident… I respect that work is really put into it and I really respect how she is so business-savvy and she’s such a good person.”

According to
The Cut,
Kardashian also admitted to abiding by the same makeup faux pas. “She’s inspired me when I am really lazy and I can’t do my makeup the next day, so I’ll sleep in my makeup. I know that’s probably the worst advice, but she has all the magic creams to put on the next day to make up for it.” (Not to mention, for true skin sins, Kardashian can just dial Tilbury up for a quick complexion fix!)
