We all know that Selena Gomez likes being surrounded by famous friends – I mean, she did go to the Grammys this year with Taylor Swift as her date – and apparently that includes her glam squad. When Selena sets out on tour, she’ll have makeup artist Lottie Tomlinson by her side.
Yes, Tomlinson, as in the sister to One Direction‘s first dad, Louis Tomlinson.
But don’t think Lottie – who is only 17 years old – got the gig just because she has a famous big brother. She’s been working hard to break into the biz.
After finishing high school, Lottie asked beauty expert Lou Teasdale for an internship, agreeing to assist the hair and makeup expert at the Bleach London salon and on One Direction’s live tour.
While assisting Lou, she met Selena for the first time.
“She was on the X Factor in the UK at the same time as [One Direction] were,” Lottie told Elle. “We met backstage. She came to Lou to ask her to do her hair. She had really long hair at the time, and it was getting all knotted up. So I was assisting Lou with her hair, and she asked for a makeup touch-up. I said, ‘Sure, I can do that!’ And she liked it, and we’re still in contact.”
Look out, Louis – it seems like your little sis is going to be in the spotlight too. And with her edgy look and makeup skills, it’s easy to see why. Check out photos of Lottie and her best beauty looks below.
