Celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury is to open her first Scottish standalone store in Glasgow in a major show of confidence for the city's prime shopping street.

We previously reported that the iconic brand, which already has a presence in House of Fraser, will take over a unit from 110-112 Buchanan Street.

It has now been confirmed that Charlotte Tilbury Beauty will open its doors this Spring and follows other openings in London, Liverpool and Los Angeles.

The make-up artist, who counts Kate Moss and Amal Clooney as friends, is behind one of the UK's most successful brands.

It is sold in over 50 countries around the world and is the number one prestige make-up brand in the UK.

She has more than 2,000 employees and in 2020 sold a major stake in the company to the Spanish firm Puig for well over £1 billion.

Actresses including Sienna Miller, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Aniston and Liv Tyler have been affiliated with the brand with lipsticks created in their honour.

She grew up in Ibiza and says she was fascinated with make-up from childhood, studying pictures of Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow.

As a child she met the make-up artist Mary Greenwell, who took her on as a mentee.
