I mixed the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer with a tiny drop of Tom Ford Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust and applied it all over Emilia’s face with the Beautyblender to get a nice glow. Then, using the Tom Ford Contouring Compact in The Afternooner, I contoured her brow bone and the hollows of her cheeks to create some dimension.
I applied a very sheer layer of the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick around Emilia’s nose and chin to make sure her skin was even. Then I used the Chanel Foundation Brush for Fluid and Powder to sweep a small amount of Orlane’s Transparent Loose Powder over the forehead and T-zone. This helped her makeup stay in place throughout the shoot.
On the lid just above the crease, I applied Tom Ford Cream Color in Illicit for a gloss-like finish. Then, with a small brush, I painted a thin line under the lower lashes and blended to soften the edges. To achieve that lived-in look, I used the Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Color Quad, mixing the bottom left shade and a tiny bit of the bottom right on top of the cream shadow with my finger.

Twice over the course of her career, makeup artist Lottie felt the need to pinch herself. First, during an Elle cover shoot with idol Shirley MacLaine in 2012, and second, during her first Vogue editorial with photographer Alex Prager. But makeup artistry wasn’t always in the face painter’s career path. Lottie went to school for graphic design, but in 2003, after a panorama of internships, she decided at age 28 that beauty was her true passion. “I hustled!” she remembers. “I marketed myself online before it was the thing to do. I used MySpace, Facebook, and LiveJournal to promote my work and meet others in the industry.”
The early internet (MySpace in particular) proved to be a successful networking tool. The artist’s big break came in 2004, when Steven Tyler’s daughter Mia found Lottie on the social site and asked the LA native to be her personal makeup artist on the reality TV show Celebrity Fit Club. Three years later, Lottie moved to New York to build her fashion portfolio and began working her own jobs while assisting Pat McGrath backstage during New York, Milan, and Paris Fashion Week.
Her hard work paid off. Currently, Lottie focuses mostly on editorial (some of her recent hits can be seen in Vogue and V Magazine), although she has also worked with celebrity clients like Alicia Vikander, Emilia Clarke, and January Jones. Her calling card? Clean, glowing skin and a balanced use of color (see: Emilia Clarke for The Violet Files) that have fashion clients clamoring for more.
