Daniel Sandler, AKA “the Patron Saint of Blusher”, is an international makeup artist and the founder of Daniel Sandler Cosmetics. Daniel is the creative force behind the brand’s iconic products, including the multi award-winning and cult Watercolour Liquid Cheek Colour. Daniel joins Lan to discuss his influences, his identity, and how he created his own unique brand. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes the very act of seeing transformation happening before our eyes, can have a transformative effect upon the way we think, and the goals we choose to aim for. Whether or not we succeed in life and business, is up to us. We have to put in the work, and we have to be dedicated enough to want better. Opportunities present themselves in the most unlikely of places. When they arrive, we have to be ready. Serendipity can create life-changing moments. Creating a brand is not about copying someone else. Creating a brand is a unique pathway that stands as a reflection of who we are, and the values we hold dear.

I met Daniel Sandler at a party a couple of months ago and thought he was the most brilliant man. Within moments I was asking him round to come on the podcast and luckily he agreed. Yay!Here is a makeup artist who was brought up surrounded by glamorous people and hair stylists. He found his passion and made it into a career and his story is just fascinating and really captures what it felt like to work at a time where people were even more daring with their self expression than they are today.Later on I round up my favourites of the week including two excellent gift ideas and a mascara that will never let you downIf you fancy joining the Outspoken Beauty Private Facebook Group then search for Outspoken Beauty Podcast Chatter and I'm @OutspokenBeautyNicola on Instagram xx
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 BlushBeauty Full Lives is hosted by Madeleine Spencer, produced by Charlie Jones, and with artwork by Sung Lee.

Daniel Sandler: Creating beauty icons, the power of transformation and getting on with it...
The Emma Guns Show
Daniel Sandler (@danielsandler) is the creator of the beauty icon Watercolour Blush and one of the most prominent names in the beauty industry. His career spans over 20 years and in this episode of the show we go right back to where it all began. Daniel tells me about his freckly teen years in London and how he dove into make-up for its ability to transform. We talk about his career working on some of the most iconic faces in fashion, being in the mix during the 90s and the era of the supermodel and how he turned his passion for 'naturally glamorous' make-up into his hugely successful product line. Daniel is incredibly wise and I could listen to him all day, not just because of his story-telling, honesty and experience, but because he has a voice as smooth as a cup of Cuban coffee.
