I’m back! Where have I been?

It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and put pen to paper – or, as it were, finger to key. It’s been a strange old time. It seemed that with the passing of my 30th year in this world, the universe decided to throw me another curveball. One of which wouldn’t be quite so easy to whack back into the far distance – something I’d gotten rather good at!

You may have noticed the radio silence across my social media channels spanning from the end of February, and for that, I am sorry. It’s always hard to maintain a steady flow of uploads when a portion of your work is within social media and your health comes collapsing down around you.

I was in two minds whether to write this post, but I feel that I owe an explanation to you wonderful people who have supported me for many years.

Since the end of February, I have been going through somewhat of a health scare. You know, the kind that keeps you up on a night worrying about your impending doom, but the type that has you so exhausted that you’re constantly battling the world of slumber and the world of being a wide awake fully-functioning adult.

I won’t go into too much detail, but the last few months have certainly gone down as some of the hardest that I’ve faced in my entire life. In a blur of hospital appointments, tests upon tests and scare upon scare, I can finally say that I’ve now arrived at a better place. No longer do I have the worst possibility hanging over my head like a ticking timebomb. Instead, I have a diagnosis and another road still left to travel. And although this diagnosis is not one that I would say I was happy with, I can’t deny it has left me relieved with every fibre of my being and thanking God for another chance.

As it would be a little strange to suddenly break my social media silence with a beauty review after all these months, I wanted to film this video as a little introduction to my return. The pre-show, if you will!

Now, as we move into July, things are starting to get back on track ever so cautiously and ever so gently – like those slow but sure lapping waves on a calm, tranquil sea. The crashing waves of that turbulent tide steadily beginning to ease into the distance. I have makeovers to look forward to, work to return to and beauty packages to be unboxed. But most of all? I have a life to live.

Thank you to those who noticed the silence and took the time to check in on me – you’ll never quite know how much you helped.

February 2019 Glossybox Unboxing | It’s all about love…

Hi my beauties and welcome back! Today it’s all about the February 2019 Glossybox unboxing! It’s been a hot minute since I received a Glossybox, but I couldn’t miss out on the Valentine’s edit.

I knew the February Glossybox would be a good one – after all, I knew it contained a Huda Beauty Lip Contour pencil so it was worth purchasing for that alone.

If you know me at all, you’ll know that I adore Valentine’s Day! Whether I’m single or dating, I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day and associated it with all things happy. I totally blame the amount of fairytales I’ve listened to or the rom coms that I just love to indulge in – I just love the idea of love! Speaking of love, I want to know how your Valentine’s Days were! I love hearing your stories and there’s nothing nicer than seeing your names pop up on my blog or video comments – it means the world that you take the time to write to me and it’s great to hear how you’re doing.

I hope that you enjoy watching my new unboxing video below. It feels so nice to be sat in front of the camera chatting away to you all again.

Enjoy!

February Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing

Hello my lovelies and welcome to my February Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing!

We have finally made it to February and we have officially gotten through the longest month of the year! I don’t know about you, but January has seemed to have lasted an eternity this year. With the uncertain weather, gloomily dark days and a six-week pay day for most, I can happily say I’m glad to see the back of it.

February Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing | Rachael Divers

Not only was January long and tedious, it was also the first time that I hadn’t uploaded a Lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing in a very long time. You can find out why in my video below where I explain it all.

Anyway, hello February! This is one of my favourite months of the year for many reasons. For one, it’s the month of my mum’s birthday. For two, it’s the month of my birthday. And for three, it’s the month of love! Valentine’s Day is almost here, yippee! I absolutely love February beauty boxes – they’re always so girly and pretty and this month’s Lookfantastic box is no exception.

I’m head over heels with a fair few products in the February box, so watch below to find out my favourites and to see what you can expect from your box this month!

Enjoy!

Welcome to 2019 at Rachael Divers Makeup Artistry

Hello everybody and a very happy New Year to you!

I hope that you all enjoyed a gorgeous festive season full of time well spent with your nearest and dearest. It was a quiet old Christmas and New year for me, but just what I needed. After a busy year full of changes, challenges and new beginnings, I couldn’t wait to cosy on down with a bottle of prosecco and my family for some well needed R&R.

Now that we’ve arrived in the year 2019, it’s time to start making plans, setting goals and of course, looking forward to a fresh new year! I am so excited to begin the year and work with my beautiful clients once again to create gorgeous makeup looks – from beautiful bridal to glamorous night out looks. You certainly all keep me busy with your fabulous events, and for that, I am truly thankful.

For all of my 2019 brides thus far, this is YOUR year! It’s time for you to truly embrace all things love and happily ever after as you enter the countdown to your special day. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be by your side for this very special, momentous event in your life. I have always said that bridal makeup especially is something so beautifully special – a job to take on with care and pride.

For all of my special occasion clients – I can’t tell you how excited I am to meet and make you all over for your special events. From returning clients to new clients, I truly appreciate you all and your decision to spend your time and money with me.

To all of you – thank you.

See you all soon!
