Lottie is the Makeup Guru You Need in Your Life

In the land of endless makeup tutorials its easy to get lost in it all. But if you’re looking for your one, steady, makeup guru we recommend you go with Lottie.

Shying away from the makeup community drama, Lottie has made quite a (first) name for herself, working with huge celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Paris Jackson, Emilia Clarke, and Solange Knowles, among many (many) others.

The self-taught talent was raised in Southern California and knew early on that she had a thing for art. Upon completing her education in graphic design, she moved to London, England. But a few years later, she moved into what she considers her true calling, now working in LA and NY.

“My path was not a straight and easy one, I started wanting to be a graphic designer and in a roundabout way through an internship at a magazine for design I discovered that being a makeup artist was a real job outside of retail,” she said in an interview with the Reed Clarke blog. “From that point, I knew design was not my goal anymore and I did what I could to become a makeup artist. I practiced on every single person I knew, including myself and my husband and then starting testing and building a book.”

She now rocks the biggest fashion shows in New York, Milan, London, Miami, and Los Angeles. Take a look at some of her makeup looks in the gallery below.
