Lottie Tomlinson is the 17-year-old kid sister of One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson, but this up-and-coming MUA is soon to make waves in her own right.

#7 Pat McGrath @patmcgrathreal

When it comes to makeup artists, Pat McGrath is a unanimous fashion favorite. Her kind demeanor is just as famous in the biz as her highly artistic looks for the high-fashion likes of Dior. She’s also started her own makeup line, with the full support of the models-of-the-moment.

#9 Dick Page @dickpageface

Those bronzed and glowing Victoria’s Secret Angels owe their flawless look to Dick Page. When Page isn’t working backstage at fashion shows or on editorial projects, you can find him ‘gramming all the foods he’s created—he’s an accomplished chef as well.


#10 Hrush Achemyan @styledbyhursh

Hrush is responsible for Kylie Jenner’s Instagram model-esque brand of beauty—that means ultra-flawless skin, perfect brows, and lashes for days.
