The honour is one of the UK’s highest accolades, awarded to those who are considered to have made notable contributions in their specific areas of activity.

Tilbury, who founded her namesake make-up brand in 2013, was one of several beauty veterans who received prestigious honours on Friday.

“I feel incredibly honoured and very proud to receive an MBE in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List”, she said in a statement.

“To be recognised for my services to the beauty industry as both a makeup artist and entrepreneur is an amazing personal accolade which means so much to me. I have been fortunate enough to work at the forefront of the beauty industry for over two decades which has allowed me to share my vision with the world, changing the way women, from 18-80, perceive themselves through the use of makeup.”

Jo Malone, the founder and creative director of British perfume and scented candle brand Jo Malone, received a CBE for her services to the British economy and the GREAT Britain tourism campaign. She was first awarded an MBE in 2008.

Meanwhile, Caroline Neville, president of Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) also received an MBE for her services to female entrepreneurs and to charity. The not-for-profit organisation brings together more than 1,000 members from the beauty industry and related fields.
