Exclusive Interview: Daniel Sandler!

Hello there, people of the Internet! Today, I have something very exciting to share with you- an exclusive interview with Makeup Artist Daniel Sandler!

His line of Makeup Products are used by some of the world’s top makeup artists such as Jane Bradley, Cassie Lomas, Lisa Eldridge and Pixiwoo.

They’ve also won many Beauty awards, the top being the Cosmo Awards for Best Blusher and Best Brushes along with his Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Award for his lipstick in the beauty and lifestyle brand section.

So I’m glad to welcome Daniel Sandler; here he is!

Q. What is your favourite thing about working in the beauty business, and why?

A. The beauty business allows people to look and feel their best. Makeup is a great way to help add self-confidence.

Q. What are your thoughts on airbrushed/photoshopped models in magazines?

A. Like everything, too much isn’t good.

Q. Can you give any tips to aspiring makeup-artists?

A. Practice as much as possible and don’t expect jobs to pay you when you first start out. There’s a lot of hard work to do before the money starts rolling in.

Q. What is the best thing you’ve done in your career so far?

A. Creating a unique and iconic product, my Watercolour fluid blusher.

Q. What is a must-have makeup product(s) for anyone on the go from your collections?

A. My Watercolour fluid blushers.

Q. If you collaborated with another make-up artist, who would it be? Why?

A. There are a few I’d like to work with because they all excel in different styles. I can’t name just one, sorry.

Q. What steps did you take to reach the incredible position you’re in now?

A. As a freelance makeup artist, I stayed committed to the job and worked my socks off. Also, I was nice to as many people as possible and learnt how not to have an opinion. As a brand creator and owner, I re-invented the wheel in terms of creating a new product, my watercolour.

Q. When did you first want to work in make-up?

A. I was about 16 when I knew it was to be my career. It had been a hobby since I was 13 and I was lucky I knew what I wanted to do from early on.

Q. Do you take inspiration from anyone? If so, who?

A. Inspiration comes from tons of stuff I see all around me on a daily basis, such as nature, art and street fashion.

Q. What’s your favourite look this year?

A. I love a perfect complexion with a matte red mouth, defined brows and contoured cheeks. It’s a stunningly beautiful look on any woman and a modern nod to Hollywood.

Thanks so much to Daniel for doing this interview- good luck for the future! Find Daniel on his website here and find him on Twitter @danielsandler or @DSandlerMakeup

You are Beautiful.

Hello there, people of the Internet! Today is all about Being Yourself. Whether it be in the way you talk (don’t try and talk differently if you have an accent; it sets you apart from everybody else!), the way you look, or the way you dress!

I dress in very Retro/Vintage style clothing 98% of the time- that means I wear different clothes, have my hair differently (most of the time in loose plaits/braids or loose ponytails) and one thing I get teased for a lot; I wear a hat! Not your ordinary hat, mind you- think Michael Jackson style!

I wear that hat with every outfit I own. You heard me right! Every. Single. Outfit. Now, no-one ever seems to think it’s just how I dress: they think I’m playing dress-up! Sorry that I don’t follow what everyone else is wearing- I don’t want to be a sheep!

Coming off my mini-rant… Onto accents! Say you’re from Newcastle and have moved to Lincolnshire where I live, you’d have a completely different accent from everyone else; except me- I have an accent where I live!

Both my parents are from Grimsby; that means I don’t pronounce my h’s right, and I replace my with me, and going with gooing! I used to get picked on a lot because of that, but eventually people stopped teasing me- because I accepted my accent!

Onto my last point in this: How you look. These days, a lot of Teen’s, Tween’s or Adults make themselves feel bad about how they look!

I have the dullest eyes, and most boring hair colour ever; but I accept that! I’m not going to go on at you about not dying your hair- it’s your decision! Heck, I’ve had mine highlighted blonde to make it look nicer, and it’s made me feel a lot more confident with how I look!

So accept yourself as you are, and don’t feel like you have to change a thing. You are Beautiful.

Lots of Love,

Blossom xx
