The Daniel Sandler name is one that's not terribly well known on these shores, and that's a bit of a shame. Those of you with particularly beaut.ieful eagle eyes might have noticed that his ultimate Hero product, Watercolour Blush, won an IMAGE award this year.
And it was well deserved, I reckon. Watercolour blush is a highly fluid base that can be worn on bare skin for a beautiful flush, or over makeup for a stronger effect. Far easier to blend than a cream, it has none of the stickiness that gel tints often have and it gives a much more natural looking blush than powder. I love it and since it was sent to me by makeup artist Kathryn O'Neill, it's rarely been out of my makeup bag.
Speaking of makeup artists, they're central to how Daniel Sandler operates. He personally trains his artists, and they then offer what is known as the the Perfect Partner Service, which is all about using his excellent products correctly and getting the absolute right match for you. Expert advice is on hand to help you choose the right shades and colours, and all your details are then kept on file - much like Prescriptives famous matching service - and you can have them repeated any time. Sounds good, doesn't it?
Watercolour blush comes in a gorgeous array of shades (above), and costs â‚¬16 - a brilliant price as you need such a tiny amount that the 15ml bottle will last a loooong time. You can buy from your makeup artist, who will be happy to come to you for a consultation - another very enticing prospect!
Kathryn is located in the south west of the country and covers counties Kerry and Cork, as well as the Kerry borders area. She trained with our auld muckers Boylan and Balfe as well as in London with Daniel Sandler himself. And excellent news for those of you with summer weddings - she specialises in bridal and special occasion makeup as well as skincare and holistic therapies. That's not all - she also offers "one to one and group sessions to help you to create flawless makeup looks, whether you want to update your style, or learn how to enhance your individual beauty using the latest techniques and the award wining Daniel Sandler makeup range".
