Founder Charlotte Tilbury, 45, has been a make-up artist to the stars for more than 20 years, having worked with such famous faces as Nicole Kidman, Kate Moss and Amal Clooney. She launched her eponymous line of beauty products in 2013 and opened the brand’s flagship Covent Garden store in 2015. The firm has since expanded distribution to North America, Europe, the Middle East and Hong Kong. Its 200-plus distribution points helped boost sales to £100.7m last year under chief executive Demetra Pinsent, 44. In that period it recorded £4.3m in earnings before interest, tax, amortisation, depreciation and exceptional items, but an operating loss. This year Sephora shops in America, Canada, Germany and Spain began selling its products.
