**DANIEL SANDLER WATERFLUID BLUSHERS**
I was looking for some new cream blushers for  my professional kit and thought I would give these a try after viewing many other brands. I purchased a trio set which included two blushers and a application brush.
Priced at £30 but is worth £46. So a good saving. Plus with the easter discount applied I got this for £24 which is amazing. I chose shades Cherub and Angel. A gorgeous pink tone and a light brown tone.
Follow the link below to see the collection. I used these today on a bridal job and was super impressed with the feel and pigment of these. They left the cheeks looking so fresh and dewy,

**RISE OF THE GUARDIAN ANIMATED FILM INSPIRED LOOK**

I am so happy with the outcome of my Rise of The Guardian inspired make up look. After months of planning and weeks or make up practice I can show them off in my portfolio.

I always like to showcase my thought process behind my creative photo shoots, which involves sharing the moodboards I make prior to the shoot.

For this photo shoot I made roughly 8 moodboards, one for each team member. Most importantly I had a lot referring to the make up as it was a look created by me (never done before) and I needed to know on the day which way the line work was going to go. Hence the moodboard showing the practice images.

I made quite a few for the photographer so I was able to portray my vision to her. This included hand poses and lighting for the look. Which she took on board perfectly. I wanted a dark gritty feel to the look to match Pitch’s mood with amazing shadows. 

It is very important for me I have ample research and moodboards on hand on the day of my shoot as this keeps me well organised.

Base, body and Hair:

Mehron Gold Metallic Powder and Mixing Medium Combo pack

**Behind scenes image from high end fashion shoot **

Blue/black grungy eye for today’s shoot. I wanted to do quite a versatile look as I needed this look to suit all 9 outfits which the stylist Ian Tod put together for the shoot. I needed a look that would suit all but which I could touch up as the shoot progressed. As all outfits were black and white (so stunning) I opted for a little blue to add a little contrast. Using Fashionista gel liner, Urban Decay Cosmetics Smoked Palette, UB liner and Illamasqua black liner.More images to come soon from BTS and final edited images.

**NEW BLOG - KRYOLAN PROFESSIONAL AND ULTRA BRUSH RANGE**Hi All, I thought I would get a detailed blog in before my internet dies on me soon for when we move. I actually started making this blog a week ago, I now have time to sit and type up the details for it.I do have a nice brush collection, but as you all know us make up artists can never have to many brushes and although NARS and Extreme Make Up sent me some beautiful brushes to try I still WANT more, I just love collecting brushes from new brands and trying them out. Some brushes I keep just for my creative work and the rest for my shoots and bridal work. These will be for my fashion, beauty and bridal work.This is the first time I have tried the Kryolan brushes, you know what I am going to say next  as I am a huge Kryolan fan they are going to be nothing less than perfect.Kryolan have two different brush types in the range they have the Professional range and the Ultra range. Both made from natural materials.Professional RangeMade from natural hair bristles. The handle is produced from well seasoned wood and finished in silver enamel. The brushes I have are listed below:
Art No 1715 – Medium Powder Brush. This is actually one of the largest handled powder brushes I have ever had. Very well made and so soft. £12.15
Art No 3511 – Medium rounded eye shadow brush £6.15
Art No 3712 – Small to medium flat headed eye shadow brush £6.75
Ultra RangeMade from Red Marten bristles, which is a superior natural material and is known as European sable. They have a no paint finish, which means they receive no negative effect from brush cleaner. This can over time peel off the paint. These brushes are a little more expensive then the professional range. They come delivered in a stylish acrylic glass tube, which keeps them away from dust and keeps them nice and tidy. A nice little touch I think. 
Art No – 9714 10mm Rounded brush. For eye shadow applications. £9.75
Art No 9810 7mm Precision angled flat brush. I love this for creating cut creases into the socket area. £7.49
As you can see the ultra range is not that much more expensive than the professional range. Both well worth a try, a great selection of professional brushes for your kit and personal use. These are the first natural bristled brushes I have and I really love the feel of them. All so soft and one of my favourite qualities they have, dense bristles, which for me means lots of bristles packed in for better make up applications. You can view the full collections from Extreme Makeup HERESarah x

**NEW BLOG - KRYOLAN PROFESSIONAL AND ULTRA BRUSH RANGE**

Hi All, 

I thought I would get a detailed blog in before my internet dies on me soon for when we move. I actually started making this blog a week ago, I now have time to sit and type up the details for it.

I do have a nice brush collection, but as you all know us make up artists can never have to many brushes and although NARS and Extreme Make Up sent me some beautiful brushes to try I still WANT more, I just love collecting brushes from new brands and trying them out. 

Some brushes I keep just for my creative work and the rest for my shoots and bridal work. These will be for my fashion, beauty and bridal work.

This is the first time I have tried the Kryolan brushes, you know what I am going to say next  as I am a huge Kryolan fan they are going to be nothing less than perfect.

Kryolan have two different brush types in the range they have the Professional range and the Ultra range. Both made from natural materials.

Some inspiration for a upcoming fashion shoot I am doing the make up for 

I have wanted to do glossy eyes for a while now. I know this look will suit the theme and location we have.  

Some make up artists say not to use Vaseline or lip gloss on the eyes but I have also read online from NARS  and Marc Jacobs that some of their artists did just this for some of the looks they created. 

I can’t get hold of mac creme brilliance therefore I have ordered some clear glosses and if they are not to sticky I will give them a shot. 

All about experimenting and seeing what works for you. :)  #gloss #makeup #highfashion #fashion #nars #marcjacobs #shoot #model

**RISE OF THE GUARDIANS INSPIRED CREATIVE LOOK**

This look was inspired by Pitch and Sandmans battles in the animated film, Rise of the Guardians. I was instantly drawn to the colours and shapes they used in the film and thought it would be amazing to do a look based on this. There was a lot of depth of colours to Pitchs nightmare shapes, these included purples, blues and blacks whereas Sandman was a mixture of gold tones. 

I have been planning this look for months and I am so happy it has all come together so well. Thank you to the below team for making this possible. Rise of The Guardians is one of my favourite films and to replicate an idea into a make up look from parts of the film is really amazing. Fantastic forme to have in my portfolio

One of my many moodboards is attached so you are able to see my reference. I will be writing up a full blog post on all products used for the make up, nails and extra moodboards I made. I had a crazy amount of 7 in total. Which included poses, lighting, hair, make up and a few extra ones for the mood and feel of the shoot. 


Brands used Kryolan Professional Make-up and Mehron

Thanks to the team who took part in this shoot. Nice simple beauty shoot showcasing some use of colour and contouring.

To create the orange liner I mixed Illamasquas sealing gel with an orange eye shadow. Great for creating vivid eye liners and experimenting.
