Daniel Sandler’s appreciation of the transformative power of beauty began early in his life through watching his hairdresser dad and his interior designer mum at work.
But rather than following in either of their footsteps, he instead alighted on make-up.
Success quickly found Daniel, and over his 30+ years in the industry he’s made up everyone from A-list actresses to pop stars to models (Daniel is exceedingly discrete, but a couple of names pop up during the episode, if you’re curious about that sort of thing).
He went on to found Daniel Sandler Makeup, a brand which is a go-to for make-up artists and I’ve seen his products – particularly the famous Watercolour Blush – backstage at MANY a show and on shoots.
In Daniel’s episode, he talks about the dawning realisation that he wanted to become a make-up artist, his defiance of his dad’s wish for him to join him in hairdressing, and how he got his career off the ground. He also offers some make-up tips, explains how he goes about enhancing a face, and decodes precisely how to use Watercolour Blush.
Here are the products Daniel mentions:
– Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer
– Mary Quant Make-Up
– Clinique Superbalanced Make-Up
– Estee Lauder More Than Mascara
– Daniel Sandler Pressed Powder
– Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush
