September 2017 Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing: The Birthday Edit

My September Lookfantastic Beauty Box arrived the exact minute that I was told that I was number one in the telephone queue after being on hold for 25 minutes. It was a tough call between answering the door to the postman or staying on the line to discuss an extremely boring hospital appointment. I’m just joking, it was an easy decision made in a split second as I clicked the ‘end call’ button and dashed to the door.

I love our two postmen to bits. They’re always cheery and happy and always have something nice to say. I sometimes wonder if they wonder why I’m home most of the time and get an abundance of packages but that’s beside the point. Today, one of our posties handed over my package and said ‘I’ve brought a box of chocolates for you!’ He always makes me laugh!

The September Lookfantastic Beauty Box didn’t disappoint and I’m going to go as far as to say that I think this is my personal favourite of the whole entire year! Yes, that’s how much love I’m feeling for this box. A big part of why I loved the box so much is because it’s actually a Birthday edition celebrating another year of Lookfantastic! Holographic stars on the lid and the lot. And what better way to celebrate a birthday than a gorgeous box full of haircare, skincare, makeup and even a sweet treat to eat!

If you’re thinking of taking the plunge and subscribing to Lookfantastic, now is the time. This box has a perfect mix of beauty goodies so you’ll be getting a really gorgeous selection of products from the best of the best to try. Not to mention the stunning makeup palette that’s included too this month, but more about that in a future post.

Get cosy, snuggle down and watch my September 2017 Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing video above. Don’t forget to give my video a big thumbs up if you enjoyed it and subscribe if you’re new. While you’re on with that, go ahead and leave me a comment too because I love to chat to everybody in the comments box and see how you’re all doing.

HALLOWEEN 2017 – BOOKING NOW!

Exciting news is afoot today as my diary for Halloween 2017 appointments is now well and truly open! I’ve been waiting for this day since round about the 31st October 2016 and I just can’t wait to create more gory and gruesome looks for you all this year!

Bloody Mermaid Dolly | HALLOWEEN 2017 – BOOKING NOW! | Rachael Divers

Halloween is getting bigger and bigger each year, and it’s not uncommon for me to have over 60 people on my waiting list hoping that I get a cancellation that they can take. I’m honoured to be able to offer Halloween makeup once again for you all and I absolutely can’t wait to get cracking!

Bloody Mermaid Dolly | HALLOWEEN 2017 – BOOKING NOW! | Rachael Divers

I’ve been hard at work over the last few months creating new makeup looks to share with all through the run up until All Hallows Eve, and this spooky season, I’m kicking off my collection of monsters with this terrifyingly dazzling Bloody Mermaid Dolly!

Bloody Mermaid Dolly | HALLOWEEN 2017 – BOOKING NOW! | Rachael Divers

Inspired by the popular mermaid trend and of course the summer festivals, I decided to make this darling dolly a little more dazzling with a healthy sprinkle of glitters from Dust and Dance! And of course, this is a special occasion so glitter is needed in abundance.

Appointments book up extremely quickly for Halloween, so if you would like to book in for a gory makeover this halloween, please do so as early as you can. This year I also have the pleasure of working with the amazing team over at the Yorkshire Scare Grounds where I’ll be providing makeup artistry for their horror nights to scare you out of your socks!

My three current favourite highlighters

Highlighting has become a pretty big deal in the world of makeup. If your face is not glowing to the Gods and sending light signals to space, you can’t sit with us.

My three current favourite highlighters | Rachael Divers

In realness though, the highlighting trend is still going strong and layering highlighters can often help us to achieve that blinding effect so very desired by the masses. I flit between highlighters as a rule, but just recently, I have three that have been firm favourites for a good few months now.

My three current favourite highlighters | Rachael Divers

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter in Pink Shimmer
Wonderfully cheap (three whole pounds!), gorgeously pigmented and oh so easy to use. The whole range of the MUA Skin Shimmers have a place in my heart, but at the moment I’m really feeling the ultraviolet hues that this shimmer kicks out. Perfect for layering high up on the cheekbone or adding a spot of light to the inner corner of the eyes. You’ll notice that my own Shimmer Highlighter looks a little worse for wear, but that’s what dropping your beloved compact on a tiled floor will do for you. Sure, it’s missing a few chunks here and there thanks to the trauma I subjected it to and the lid doesn’t click into place anymore (must learn to stop trying to carry ten million things at once), but it still applies like an absolute dream.

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey 
If you haven’t heard of this holy grail highlighter, you must not have been surfing social media channels anytime recently. I got this beautiful highlighter in the Lookfantastic Beauty Egg this Easter (which by the way was one of the best surprise packages I’ve ever received). A beautiful golden elixir of highlighter baked to perfection that gives the skin a glowing radiance that really is very beautiful. It skips the grey tones that some golds can sometimes bestow upon me and instead leaves me with a candlelit golden glow without a hint of chunky glitter in sight.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
A little hint of glimmer (but not enough to be sparkly) and a whole lot of sheen adds such a beautiful glow to skin with this gorgeous baked highlighter. This is the perfect product for a high fashion sheen on both the face and body, and I love using it lightly across my whole face (I know, I’m crazy) in the summer time to give my skin a real hit of the glow. This is one of my favourite highlighters to use on my makeover clients as you can really sheer the glow out to look gorgeously natural, or you can amp it up with a spritz of MAC Prep + Prime Fix + to really up the glow.

On the skin, they’re so glowy and beautiful! | My three current favourite highlighters | Rachael Divers
