And one amongst them is Charlotte Elizabeth Tomlinson, popularly known as Lottie Tomlinson. The half-sister of Louis Tomlinson, member of pop band One Direction, took to becoming a stylist at a young age. Her tryst with make-up palettes helped realized her passion for style, thus giving her recognition of her own. Today, she is counted amongst the top stylist and make-up artist.
