Last weekend I spent my time at Lartington Hall meeting brides. During this time one of the main requests I received from the brides is that they felt make-up needs to look flawless with delicate approach to colour.
I wanted to share with you some of the images of a look I created with this approach in mind and the products I used.
In keeping with the delicate colours of the flowers, décor and the venue I wanted to keep a peachy hue with the makeup but add a black eyeliner for a hint of drama. For the eyeliner it was kept quite thick and heavy as opposed to the obvious winged cat flick eyeliner...
This AW17 photoshoot with La Di Da magazine I wanted to channel the 1940’s inspired glamour of the past sensational sirens of the past.
The front cover was all about the strength of a women wearing a tuxedo suit and top hat and the strong emphasis on strong lipstick. I didn’t want the lipstick to be the traditional cherry red I wanted to really show a twist to the look with more of a autumnal burnished red by Marc Jacob.

Foundation and concealer: Veil Cover Cream

Eyebrows, mascara and bronzer: Rodial

After receiving a monthly subscription for Porter Magazine over Christmas I was looking through the latest edition and felt the need to spend some time for “me” and to book a rare holiday as a busy self employed make-up artist !
After working in London, Milan and Paris Fashion weeks I felt the need to switch off, meditate and the urge for some inner peace. I am huge fan of Tai Chi and spend time meditating and wanted to find a holiday that had a similar concept.
Retreats.Pro was the perfect choice. As a child I have been really lucky and have lived all over the world, but there...
On a recent visit to Paris I was thrilled to receive a hand delivered Guerlain parcel to my hotel with their latest make-up range which is launching in January, 2015.
Some of these products are top secret until January but I was given the honour to try the range for this beauty look, plus write a review on these beautiful products.
I eagerly opened the parcel with a huge grin and was immediately drawn to the packaging and the quality of Guerlain, which has been enchancing beauty since 1892.
With Spring time nearly upon us it’s time to put aside the heavier make-up from the winter months...
I always have to pinch myself when I get to see my latest work in New magazine and also in large print which I have proudly framed and on display.
Over the last couple of years I have worked alongside an amazing team and love creating the looks for Rock N Rose campaign/editorial and social media images.
How did I create this look using Daniel Sandler make-up?
The key is to focus the look on the blusher. To create a soft focus on the skin I applied the foundation with a foundation brush. For those “killer cheekbones” I used the highlighter shimmer on top of the cheeks to make the cheeks...
I am thrilled to see my latest work on the front cover of a luxury magazine called La Di Da.
The shoot was arranged by myself and a talented up and coming photographer Rebecca Elizabeth Tate. We wanted to create an autumnal feel to the shoot to involve all aspects from the colour of the hair to the choice of make-up.
Hope you enjoy these images and I have given you some ideas on wearing some vibrant colours during these dreary grey winter months.
