Sunday Feature: You Go Girl! Featuring Makeup artist and Guru Sandy Gold!

Every Sunday I feature a blogger, artist, photographer, makeup artist, actress, socialite or all around awesome person on my blog in a feature I like to call "You Go Girl!" or in some cases "You Go Boy!".

This week Ill be featuring Canadian Makeup artist and guru Sandy Gold!

Sandy's passion for makeup has lead her to work with some top cosmetic lines such as Bobbi Brown, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Nars and Laura Mercier. She has also created flawless faces for many well known Celebrities and Athletes like: Chris Bosh, Mats Sundin, Vernon Wells, Elle MacPherson, Viggo Mortensen, Kevin Bacon, Robin Tunney and Jeff Daniels to name a few.

With her success as a makeup artist, youtube guru and blogger shes taken the makeup world by storm at such a young age. I recently got the chance to meet Sandy at an event and after having seen her on CityTv's Breakfast Television I have to say I was a little bit in awe. She was as bubbly and friendly in person as she had seemed on tv, not to mention gorgeous with seriously the most perfect skin Ive ever seen! I was so happy to have had the chance to chat with her again and find out her beauty secrets.

So who are you and why are you so fabulous?
I’m a half Italian, half Austrian Makeup Artist from Toronto. And, I love my job – I get to meet all kinds of incredible women everyday and help them look and feel their absolute best! How cool is that!

I am totally obsessed with: Makeup, Shoes & Boots (especially rain boots!), Chocolate (M&M’s and chocolate covered almonds…mmmm), Cupcakes and Jewelry.

And, I am fabulous because I am a woman! :)

Where can we find you on the world wide web?

You can find me at:

Beauty Blog: www.happiface.com

YouTube: www.youtube.com/sandygold25 (to watch my how-to beauty videos)

Twitter: www.twitter.com/sandygold25 (I just started “tweeting” so come follow me on Twitter – I would love to hear from you!)

What one beauty product would you recommend to my readers and why?
Mascara. My Mom always says that if you don’t wear Mascara you will look like a plucked chicken – and nobody wants that!

My two favourite Mascara’s of all time are: L’oreal Voluminous Mascara and Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils! (talk about false lashes in a tube!!)


Have you ever lost or broken a beauty item you wish you still had today?
Yes – REVLON Skinlights Glosslights Lip Gloss. I lost it awhile back and then
it got discontinued!! Grrrrr ;)

You're in a huge rush, what one beauty product do you grab?
My Blistex – I can’t leave home without it!


What are your thoughts on fake eyelashes?

I absolutely love false lashes! Have you ever tried the new Revlon Self Adhesive Lashes? They are super easy to use – just peel and apply – no glue required! I love them – so much fun!!
Who would you say are some favorite celeb/high profile clients?
I once did Elle MacPherson’s Makeup – only hours after working out to her “Your Personal Best” aerobics video! LOL ;)

Are there any makeup or beauty faux pas you really really cant stand?
Dark lipliner with a light lipstick. I used to do this when I was in high school and it has scarred me for life!!!! ;)

Do you have a favorite beauty guru/mentor?

Joanne Gair - www.joannegair.com - her work is incredible!

What can people expect from Sandy Gold and happiface in the future?
Lots of really great things are happening this Fall – but you’re just going to have to stay tuned to happiface to find out! ;)

Any last words or advice?

Never give up on your dreams! And, always treat people the way you want to be treated. Plus, have fun while doing your makeup – and don’t forget to Wake.up & Make.up!
