What on earth did we do before Charlotte Tilbury? That's a rhetorical question, obvs, but still - we're really struggling to recall a life lived pre-Magic Cream, pre-Light Wonder Foundation and pre-Filmstar Bronze & Glow. That highlighter is a thing of beauty and of wonder, are we right?
Queen Charlotte has slowly turned the inside of our collective make-up bag rose-gold with her famous Art Deco packaging, and now she's set to do the same with a very lucky corner of The Dubai Mall when she opens a standalone store there on 28 June. We know. We had to be sitting for that, too.
After the huge success of her Beauty Wonderland in Kuwait, she's now headed for DXB - just steps away from The Dubai Mall aquarium, in fact - before a second beauty counter on 5 July in The Perfumery of the mall’s new extension. Why have one when you can have two, that's what we always say.
As obnoxiously glamorous as you'd expect, the space will be dripping in rose-gold accents, plum velvet trimmings, old Hollywood-style vanity tables and metallic palm-tree chandeliers, proving exactly what we've always known - that more most certainly is more. And perhaps most excitingly, the store will play host to a first-of-its-kind, ground-breaking Magic Mirror that morphs your face to display Charlotte’s 10 iconic beauty looks in seconds. Excited doesn't even cover it.
