Self-taught makeup artist, known simply as Lottie, is an Instagram sensation. With more than 160k followers, her makeup looks span from artistic and graphic to more minimal looks, serving as a colorful lookbook to anyone looking to be inspired.
Raised in Southern California, Lottie displayed a strong creative flair for art and self-expression from a very young age. Upon completing her education in graphic design, she moved to London, England and quickly found work on a number of cutting edge projects. Breaking away from design a few years later, Lottie moved into what she considers her true calling.
She has since keyed fashion shows in New York, Milan, London, Miami, and Los Angeles and collaborated with giants like Beauty Blender, Urban Decay, Marc Jacobs Beauty, and Hermes. Sharing her time between LA and NY, among her celebrity clients are icons like Drew Barrymore, Karen O, Rihanna, and Emilia Clarke.
“I thrive on challenge — it’s more interesting to me,” said Lottie in an interview with Allure. “Some people like consistency and reliability, but I’m just the opposite… You can be an amazing makeup artist, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be great at runway,” she explained. “For me, working in TV is not right. Doing bridal is not right. I actually need that stress!”
