    International Make-Up Artist, Daniel Sandler

    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.

    Brand Consultant, Christina Aristodemou

    Brand Consultant, Christina Aristodemou

    This week, Lan talks to freelance brand consultant, Christina Aristodemou, one of the most sought after consultants and beauty PRs, having worked with the likes of NARS and QMS Medicosmetics.

    Christina discusses her vast experience in the sector, the places from which she has drawn her inspiration, the power of make-up and how it can empower us in positive ways, and how collaboration can inspire and ignite us.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The power of make-up is that it energises our soul. When we look good, we feel better. It is not always about standing out, but empowering us in a positive way, and giving us the confidence to face the day ahead.
    The true artists are those who can produce magic - who can take a blank canvas and see beyond what is traditionally possible.
    Working in and among great creatives allows us to, by osmosis, absorb the tastes, styles and passions of those to whom we aspire.
    Don't ever take things personally. Remember that business is business. Don't give up, and remember that everything happens for a reason.

    Kimberley Wyatt and Max Rogers

    Kimberley Wyatt and Max Rogers

    This week, Lan talks to singer, dancer, choreographer, actress and television personality, Kimberley Wyatt, and her husband, model and broadcaster, Max Rogers, about the ways in which they find inspiration in each other, the unique qualities that can be found in everyone, and how they are encouraging their family to be creative and positive.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When we look around in the world, the ones who try to inject positivity and creativity will not find fault in something bad, but focus instead upon what is good.
    A face is a unique thing that requires a unique approach. Every contour, every aspect of a face has an element that needs to be accentuated or worked with.
    The great make-up artists know that mistakes are lessons. Sometimes things don't work, but if we can take the learning from it and adjust rapidly, we become trusted and respected.
    Ideas grow through collaboration and respect. If we find the partners that can help us grow as artists, then our ambitions and goals take flight.

    World Renowned Hairdresser, Errol Douglas MBE

    World Renowned Hairdresser, Errol Douglas MBE

    Multi-award winning and world-renowned hairdresser Errol Douglas MBE discusses how he believes hard work and natural flair for styling has been the key to his long term success. Although an ambassador for leading brands, such as Dyson and Living Proof, and former President of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, Errol explains why his new role with NHS Blood Transplant could be his most important to date.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    It is not always the case that we choose careers. Sometimes, both in business and life, careers choose us. Sometimes we merely answer the call that comes from inside, and follow our instincts.
    Setbacks can often act as the ignition switch to push ourselves harder. Challenges are lessons learned, and barriers only make us want to push harder.
    Sometimes the clothes we wear and looks we adopt act as our armour - our unique identity. Presentation is everything.
    After so many generations, it is incredible to think that anyone in this world has to fight for their place in it. Equality should be expected, not earned.

    Iconic Milliner, Louis Mariette

    Iconic milliner, Louis Mariette is known for flamboyant designs and elegant creations. In this episode he discusses how he embraces his love for travel, art and culture in all of his designs - and how the key to happiness is appreciating our privileges and make the most out of them.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Those who arrive from outside a culture often have to work harder in order to prove themselves, but this also causes them to work harder and be more dedicated.
    If you have a dream then you will tend to find that people tell you it isn't possible. Challenge is natural, but we must never feel restrained by the opinions of others.
    It's always worth taking time to slow down and reflect - to plan and strategise. Visualise what you wan to achieve, and work out the best way to get there.
    The whole process of putting on a wedding can cause great anxiety and is made up of many different issues to solve. It is essentially a showcase of your tastes and wishes, and so experts such as Louis can help to expedite and realise these dreams.

    Specialist Hair and Beauty Photographer, John Rawson

    In this week's show, Lan talks to specialist hair and beauty photographer, John Rawson, about the value of collaboration, why confidence is an essential component in success, and how to recognise your own gifts and talents.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Sometimes we find our calling in life because we naturally find certain tasks easy - we excel at something that others find difficult.
    The main ingredient in finding success is the confidence in ourselves that comes from knowing we can do a job well, as well as the trust we place in others.
    Our gifts thrive when we allow the gifts of others to thrive. We create wonders when we collaborate, and allow gifts to combine and spark.
    Never mistake confidence for aggression. True professionals recognise that talent manifests itself in confidence.
