After honing her skills as a graphic designer in London, Lottie Stannard, a SoCal native, moved into the beauty world. Then she began covering the globe, making a name for herself as a celebrity makeup artist with a combo of edgy style, creativity to spare, and solid talent — from Milan to Los Angeles and everywhere in between, Lottie has worked with celebs as diverse as Taylor Swift and Robert De Niro.

We begged the jetsetting beauty genuis to give us a look at her holiday gift list, and we were thrilled when she complied!


Clockwise from the top left:

Le Creuset cast iron cookware: “They come in multiple colors and each piece is multi-functional. I have a large collection in “Caribbean” blue and don’t use anything else to cook with.”

pure maracuja oil: “I love this oil because it makes my skin super soft — and it looks clearer since I started using it.”

Any Nespresso coffee machine : “This has replaced my need/want for Starbucks in the mornings!”

LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in Hope: “This is one of my favorites — the universal rose color looks good on everyone.”

Vosges Chocolate: “There are so many flavors which means there’s something for everyone and it comes in beautiful purple packaging!”
