She is Louis’ Half-Sister

Johannah’s husband, Dan Deakin, released a statement after the tragic loss saying, “Johannah was first and foremost a truly amazing mother to seven children – Louis, Lottie, Félicité, and two sets of twins, Phoebe and Daisy and Ernest and Doris — whose individual talents and success are testament to the principles and beliefs she instilled in them.” People reported that Louis Tomlinson’s mother was also a great grandmother to his son, Freddie Reign. Although Louis is her half-brother, Lottie is very close to him as well as Harry Styles of One Direction.

She is a Famous Makeup Artist

Lottie became One Direction’s stylist and makeup artist in 2015 during their On the Road Again Tour and the band had her help for various promotional appearances. It’s no wonder she grew so close to her brother Louis! She told Paper Magazine in September 2016, “I always wanted to pursue make up professionally, but I was so young and didn’t know if I had what it takes. I think as I got a little bit older and more experienced, I realized I could really make it my career. It was amazing working alongside my brother because we shared so many amazing experiences and places with each other.” Lottie Tomlinson’s age is only 18, and she has already come so far in her career! Her makeup tutorial videos on YouTube are adorable, inspiring and very informative!
