In the first instalment of our new ‘Kit Spotlight‘ section, where I ask professional make-up artists to share their top 10 kit essentials with BeautyEditPro.com readers, I nabbed the inspirational celebrity make-up artist Daniel Sandler to share his top picks and tell us why he loves them.
I am a longtime fan of Daniels work and recommend that MUAs in training pay attention to him, as he creates looks and products that are timeless. I am particularly fond of his line of watercolour liquid blushes, that I advise every make-up artist and enthusiast have at least one of in their kit (my personal favourite is the shade Cherub) – if you do a lot of bridal make-up, you need to get acquainted with Daniels liquid and cream blushes. Daniel Sandler Cosmetics can be found in noted beauty retailers including Cult Beauty, Feelunique.com, Beauty Mart and via select beauty salons and spas – you can also buy directly from his brand site DanielSandler.com where he offers a PRO discount.
In addition to creating a bestselling cosmetic range, Daniel is one of the most sought after session and celebrity MUAs in the UK. Over the years, Daniel has worked internationally on a number of shoots with high profile fashion photographers for top glossies and with designers backstage at a number of major fashion shows as well as being a regular on national TV. Throughout his career he has beautified celebrities including: Naomi Campbell, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Scott Thomas and Kate Moss and continues to work with high profile clients and celebrities getting them ready for red carpet events, TV appearances, etc.
