When Lottie Tomlinson modeled for Chris Appleton at Mane University, mane magic happened. We’re talking pink hair, twisted rope braids, hair piercings, and mane moments after mane moments. The little sister of One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, Lottie has made a name for herself with her unique fashion sense, amazing makeup talent, and popular YouTube channel. So it’s no surprise she teamed up with Nails Inc to create Matchbox, a collection of coordinating liquid lipsticks and gel-effect nail polishes. We catch up with the 18 year old entrepreneur post Mane U below….
Tell us about your rise to beauty-superstardom! When and how did you get your start?
I started when I was 16, I asked Lou Teasdale if I could be her assistant for the week, I was so young and knew nothing but I learnt so much by assisting her and watching how she worked.
What did you think about the hairstyle Chris created on you?
The style with the twists and the hoops was one of my favourite styles ever, it was so me. He’s so talented it was a great experience having him do my hair!
Where would you wear that hairstyle out to?
I’d wear it to a festival or a night out, you could go really casual or glam and both would work really well!
What’s your go to hairstyle?
Down and wavy is usually what I go for, probably because it’s the quickest!!
Hairstyle you would love to try next?
I’d love to try some sort of fringe/bangs, I think they look amazing but I’m too scared!
Who’s your beauty muse?
I love the Kardashians for their flawless glam looks, they always look amazing! I find so much inspo from them online.
Which celebrity do you think is nailing the hair game?
I think Rihanna’s hair is incredible, she does so much with it and it always look so sick.
Speaking of ‘nailing,’ congrats on your recent Nails Inc collab! A spray polish is so major, what was that process like?
The process was so fun, I was able to be so involved with the choosing of the colour and packaging so it really reflects my style and personality.
What’s was your fav part about the collab?
I think it was the shoot for it, it was so much fun and we got some really fun photos!
You’re releasing lipsticks in October can you tell us more about that?
It’s called matchbox and it’s a matching nail polish and matte lip paint. There’s 4 really fun shades and I’m so excited about it!
