An evening with Daniel Sandler, Look Fantastic and FOUR London

Hello Lovelies,

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Daniel Sandler, Look Fantastic and FOUR London event held at FOUR’s new hair and beauty emporium in Mayfair.

Daniel Sandler, who is absolutely lovely I must say, started off by showing us how best to achieve a simple smokey eye and how to master a red lip. We learnt some great tips so thought I would share them with you!

Simple Smokey Eyes

- You can achieve a subtle yet beautiful smokey eye by using eye pencils only, just smudge to create the smokey effect.

- To achieve a subtle smokey eye, use grey eyeliner rather than black.

- Put black eyeliner over blue to create a subtle yet striking effect.

- If you have light eyelashes, tightline your eyes (line the upper waterline) to give the illusion of dark lashes and to really make your eyes pop.

- Follow the direction of the lower lash line when wanting to create the perfect upper lash flick.

Mastering lips

- To achieve the illusion of a fuller top lip, blend concealer onto the top lip then apply your lip colour.

- To enhance your top lip, put more colour on your top lip and less on the bottom. (I love this tip as I always feel my bottom lip looks too full with some colours when applying lip colour evenly)

- Apply lipstick with your middle finger to achieve a lovely subtle colour, and blot.

The night also involved a colour and style consultation with the lovely FOUR London specialists and the chance to look at some skin care treatments by Doctor Duve, exclusive to the FOUR salon.

Overall, I had an amazing evening, and it was lovely to meet other beauty bloggers. Check out these lovely ladies blogs April @A Pretty Wardrobe, Holly @ Holly Arabella, Aisling @ Fashi-ling and Amelia @ Not Too Shabby.

I even got to try out red lips for the first time, picked out by Daniel Sandler, and I really quite liked it. The darkest colour in my current lipstick collection is a soft I am sure that will be changing soon.

What do you think of the tips from Daniel? Any particular useful ones?

Lots of Love,
