A popular make-up brand is bidding to open a new standalone shop in Glasgow city centre.

MAC Cosmetics has applied for permission to alter and re-fit the unit at 131 Buchanan Street, which was formerly a T2 tea store.

If successful, the ground floor would be designed as a retail unit and the debasement would be used as a staff area.

It would include a make-up studio, cash desk, staff room, stock room, kitchen, training room and more.

According to documents, the shop will allow opportunities to play, interact and engage with products, technology and artists.

The new site would also hold a space for training and influencer events.

The papers also state: "Each customer is presented with a ‘menu’ of free and paid services, whereby they can interact with a make-up artist on a one-to-one basis, to feel informed, get excited, learn about the product and be a part of the theatre.

"A significant part of the service is also getting customers to sample the product, learn how to use it to get the best effects, looks and ultimately get them to feel good about themselves."

MAC currently has stores in House of Frasers, St Enoch Shopping Centre, Braehead Shopping Centre, Glasgow Fort and more.

Glasgow City Council's planning committee is considering the application and a decision is expected by Tuesday, February 20.

The last day for comments is Friday, February 16.
