Lottie Tomlinson is no regular 21-year-old. She's a makeup artist, the creator of tanning brand Tanologist, and a mega influencer with a following of 3.4 million. (Oh, and she has a superfamous brother, Louis Tomlinson.) She's bossing life and doing so with the perfect golden glow. With all of her tanning expertise, POPSUGAR caught up with Tomlinson to get her best fake-tan tips.
Personally, a great faux tan is something I aspire to have at all times, but I know there is always more to learn. Tomlinson and I talked about our preferred tanning formulas, shared our top tips — she repeatedly told me the importance of blending — and talked about smart application techniques. But it's not all just about the tan for her. Tomlinson's acutely aware of the fortunate position she's in as well as the influence she has and made it clear in our chat that she's keen to show the world the not-so-glamorous side of being in the spotlight.
Read on to see all of the tips Tomlinson shared with me, as well as how she feels about being a role model on Instagram, in a world where "likes" are part of her business.
