Charlotte Tilbury received an MBE from the Queen on Tuesday, for services to the beauty and cosmetics industry. Charlotte is founder and creative director of her eponymous beauty and skincare brand, Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Ltd. Her makeup range has been worn by everyone from Amal Clooney to Lady Kitty Spencer and she is widely regarded as pioneering the “feline flick” eyeliner application.

She launched the brand in 2013 at Selfridges, following years of working as a makeup artist at the top of her industry. Following its launch, the brand quickly became the retailer’s biggest-ever beauty launch for turnover. Charlotte Tilbury Beauty is now stocked online and in elite department stores across the world. Following the success of her brand, in 2015 Charlotte opened a flagship store in Covent Garden.
