July 2017 Glossybox Unboxing and First Impressions

Welcome back to my blog and to my July 2017 Glossybox unboxing! This month, Glossybox arrived in a flourish of hot coral and gold. The design of the box looked beautiful and summery, and I couldn’t wait to see inside.

I’m so glad that I opened my box immediately as a tiny disaster had happened inside. Shock! Horror! One of the product lids was wide open and the product had spilled out. My beautifully packaged box was no more! I’ve since emailed Glossybox about the damaged item (which you can find out more about in my video) and I’m awaiting a response.

Anyway, the box is another goodie this month with a good mix of products that I can make use out of. I always love the summery boxes as they always have such lovely smelling products and gorgeous bright colours inside. It’s a shame this turbulent British weather isn’t exactly playing ball when it comes to this sunshine lark though!

Never the less, tomorrow is a new day…

Kim Kardashian inspired Bridal makeup for Vicki

Just last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of making this gorgeous bride over ready for her special day. Vicki is a huge fan of Kim Kardashian and wanted to take inspiration from her wedding makeup and translate it into her own.

I was so looking forward to applying Vicki’s makeup for her, because not only is she an amazing client, but also a friend to me too! I met her some years ago when she came to me for a Halloween makeover – I made her over into a skeleton and, funnily enough, that Halloween night was the first time her now husband told her her loved her! How sweet!

Anyway, back to Vicki’s wedding day! I always love to spoil my lovely clients with some gorgeous treats (usually cupcakes) to enjoy on their wedding morning, along with some refreshing bubbles (usually a fruity mocktail). This time, it was Red Velvet, Chocolate Fudge and Strawberry Cream cupcakes with a firm favourite bottle of bubbles on the side. Tea and freshly ground coffee was on the go too for that early morning caffeine fix, of course.

I love seeing my bridal clients’ faces once they walk into the studio and see the table laid out with sweet treats just for them and their lovely bridal party to enjoy throughout the morning. I also love seeing their faces as they read their special card. There’s something extra special and radiant about a bride on her big day, and I just love that aura around them.

Vicki’s makeup was focused around her beautiful eyes which I created a rounder shape for and also added gorgeous depth with a blown out liner. I used some of my favourite products from MAC Cosmetics to sculpt her face, and of course, added a beautiful highlight too before finishing her look off with a good dose of cult favourite, Velvet Teddy.

Vicki’s mum and sister were also treated to a makeover and mini facial massage (something that I give to all of my lovely ladies seen as it’s both gorgeously relaxing and plumps the skin too!)

It was an absolute pleasure to make over Vicki, her gorgeous mum and sister too! I was so touched and had to hold back the tears after Vicki’s sister told me how special she felt and how much she loved her makeup. She isn’t used to wearing any makeup at all as she usually feels too caked, but today, she said she felt amazing. Her and Vicki’s mum also paid me a lovely compliment on the softness of my touch when applying makeup and told me how much they loved their mini facial massages too. Their sincere and beautiful compliments really touched me and made my heart absolutely burst with pride. This is exactly why I do what I do – because I want to make people look and feel truly beautiful, confident and special.

Thank you so much Vicki for allowing me to be a part of your special day, and for introducing me to two more wonderful women too. Sending you and David all the love and luck in the world for your new adventure into married life.

Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry WINS the LUX Wedding Awards 2017!

Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry WINS the LUX Wedding Awards 2017! | Rachael Divers

I was absolutely thrilled to receive an email last week to say that Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry had won the LUX Wedding Awards 2017 as the Best Bridal Hair and Makeup Salon in Barnsley! 

Achieving any recognition is absolutely wonderful, but to find out I was actually a winner was absolutely amazing.

I put a huge emphasis on the service provided within my business, and always out my amazing clients first to ensure they receive the absolute best version of me and my skills possible. To receive recognition for that is just more than I could even ask for.

The 2017 Wedding Awards were designed to showcase the very best amongst such a huge and diverse market with one thing in common: commitment to excellence. As LUX states on their website “to ensure that all of our winners can truly rest assured that their recognition was deserved, we set our dedicated research team to work as soon as voting closes. They compile a profile on each nominee, utilising information supplied by the nominated company, gleaned from the internet or provided by our network of industry contacts. This information is then provided to our judging panel, who award only those firms they believe are truly deserving of recognition.”

I have no idea who nominated me for the award, but my heartfelt thanks goes out to you. Thank you to all my of beautiful clients, bridal and otherwise, who make it possible for me to do the job that I love by supporting my business with their business. It means the world to me and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry.
