Bestival inspired makeover using Dust and Dance glitters

Summertime means festival time, and what better way to get glammed up for festival season than with some beautiful glitters and gems!

The lovely Claire over at Dust and Dance very kindly sent me some BEAUTIFUL glitters from her Bestival range that are completely stunning and perfect to glitter and glimmer away all night. I decided to mix them up with a few other Dust and Dance glitters I have to create a bright, summery makeup look perfect for festivals or summer parties.

With most of my makeup looks I prefer to start with the eyes first so that I don’t ruin my foundation with any fall down that might happen with my eyeshadows. For this look I decided to go with beautiful sunset oranges and reds along with the most gorgeous hot pink shadow from my Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette called Cake. It’s the perfect pink to set the eyeshadow colours alight and looks just as beautiful in the flesh as it does captured with my iPhone camera using a ring light. My lashes are Ardell Glamour lashes along with a coat of Benefit Roller Lash to give them a little more thickness. For my brows, I used my favourite MAC Fluidline in Dirty Blonde.

Next was the skin. I’ve been absolutely loving L’Oreal’s Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation lately and I mix Natural Rose and Ivory together for my perfect shade. For concealer, I’ve been using my favourite drugstore product Lasting Perfection Concealer from Collection. It has amazing coverage, wonderful staying power and looks beautiful on the skin. I added my favourite contour shade then swished on plenty of pink blush from Tilt Makeup all along my cheekbones, temples and hairline. I applied a huge dose of The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer highlighter to the high points of my face layered up with MUA’s Shimmer Highlighter in Pink Shimmer.

For my lips I used a mixture of my Natural Collection lip liner in Ruby Rose followed by a gorgeous coat of my NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream. Next up was the fun part – the glitters! Firstly I applied the Mermaid’s Tears Face Gems to the centre of my face before adding my favourite glitters to my eyes and surrounding areas. The glitters I used were: Ambient Radiance (green/blue flecks), Love Shower (pink and silver confetti hearts and circles), Iridescent Pink Angel (pearly sparkles in the inner corner and outer corner of my eyes) and Summer of Love (the gorgeous floral glitters!) I used a mixture of Dr Paw Paw Original Balm and the Dust and Dance Cosmetic Glue (which is AMAZING) to stick the gems and glitter down.

The gorgeous team over at Dust and Dance have given me a voucher code for all of my lovely readers to enjoy, simply enter RACHAEL10 at the checkout for 10% off your beautiful glitters!

I hope that you like my Bestival inspired makeup look as much as I do, and that you are all having an amazing, sparkly summer!

August 2017 Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing

This month’s Lookfantastic beauty box is all about Global Glamour! A beautifully designed box (as always, might I add) arrived through the door filled with some cult beauty treats that I’ve used before (and love) along with a few new discoveries too.

August 2017 Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing | Rachael Divers

I was THRILLED to see that the Skin79 Super Plus BB Cream was included in this months box. I’d seen it a long time ago over on a Korean beauty website and was toying with the idea of getting some shipped over. Back then, I was pretty new to online shopping and didn’t feel as comfortable ordering from overseas so I never did go ahead and press that order button. But now I can happily say that I have my very own little tube and can order more whenever I want from Lookfantastic. Korean makeup usually incorporates skincare too, and they have their BB creams absolutely nailed. This is certainly no exception and I can’t wait to test it out properly and write a review for you all to read. It’s definitely my hero product of the box this month, although it was such a hard decision to make with such a lovely choice of products.

I really hope that you enjoy my unboxing video – I also decided to include a little embarrassing storytime of something that happened to me a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!

Halloween 2017: Something spooky is afoot at the studio

Something spooky was afoot in the studio last week as I gathered a few supplies and started to create new additions to my Halloween look book for 2017. I’ve been itching to start creating new characters for this Halloween and just couldn’t hold off any longer. With the temperamental weather bringing more rain than shine over the past week or so, I was really in the mood to get into some darker, moodier makeovers.

I’m not going to reveal too much in this post as I’d like to keep things a surprise until October, but I’ve been snapping away behind the scenes to show you a few little teasers. You might be able to guess what some of the new looks are if you’re  a bit of a detective!

Along with my favourite SFX makeup suppliers, I’ve found Hobbycraft to be an absolute dream when it comes to DIY looks. This year I wanted to push my boundaries and try to make a lot of characters from scratch. There’s something so satisfying about seeing the finished look after all your hard work and dedication to the character you’re creating, and I think it’s important to keep challenging myself as a makeup artist in order to learn and grow. Something I’ve also really been enjoying over the past couple of weeks is sketching. It’s been absolute years since I’ve sat down with my sketch pad and pens and got lost in my own little world. Not only is it therapeutic, but it also helps with developing my detail skills – something I love working on in order to improve my work for my clients for special occasion makeovers and spooky makeovers alike.

Don’t forget that you can register your interest now for Halloween 2017 and receive priority booking – simply send me an email or a message through my Facebook Business page stating your preferred date, time and look to be listed and contacted first once I release the appointments. Stay tuned for my gruesome Halloween characters coming soon!
