Working for Fanta in London ahead of the Twisted Carnival

This week has been an amazing whirlwind of adventures! I was thrilled to be asked to provide the makeup for a Fanta campaign to promote their Twisted Carnival – an immersive Halloween event touring the UK from the 6th October.

Fanta, who is owned by soft drinks giant Coca-Cola, is synonymous with Halloween and always go above and beyond with their spooky marketing to create something amazing each year!

For the shoot I was involved in, I was asked to go down to London for a few days to crate a ghoulish sinister old lady who would give commuters a shock by appearing in popular London hotspots. I had an amazing time with the most wonderful PR company, model, extras and photographers creating something wonderful!

We visited popular spots like Charing Cross Tube station and Oxford Street to give commuters a fright and it was incredible to see people’s reactions first hand. Some freaked out, some curious and some just plain bemused!

It’s been a wonderful experience that I’ve loved being a part of, and I cannot wait to hear more about Fanta’s Twisted Carnival soon!

Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Palette review

As soon as I heard word that Charlotte Tilbury would be dropping another new limited edition palette, I knew I had to have it. Charlotte is the Queen of emotive marketing, and she absolutely nails it every time with her branding. There’s something so luxurious and decadent about the whole brand that it’s just irresistible – especially to me!

Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Palette review | Rachael Divers

The gorgeous Stars in Your Eyes Palette retails at £60 and includes eyeshadows to create four different looks:
Love
Happy
Power
Confident

Described as magical, mood-enhancing looks, the palette offers a little something for the transition from daytime to evening with ease.

The Love Look is made from three rose quartz-inspired shades incorporating soft pinks which are made to reflect the stone which symbolises love. Charlotte says the shades are perfect for date nights and weddings and I have to agree, they are pretty, feminine and remind me of that angelic ballerina look that just oozes soft beauty.

The Happy Look has three sun-lit amber shades which to me are perfect for soft autumn eyes.

The Power Look contains three beautifully rich golden shades for glimmering, gilded eyes.

The Confidence Look has three topaz-ruby inspired shades that symbolise fire, heat and purity to empower and enhance the eyes.

Firstly, the packaging of the palette is stunning. From the ultra sparkly box that the palette comes within to the deep ruby sparkles of the palette’s hard-casing. The palette screams luxury and glamour.

The eyeshadows themselves have the most beautiful texture. The palette feels different to me than the previous Pillow Talk Palette – they feel buttery, soft and decadently rich. The majority of the shades are extremely pigmented, and the molten shades feel like liquid lava upon swatching – the formulas certainly feel like they have been even more improved since the last launch.

I’m so excited to try this palette out on my eyes (look out on Instagram for the photographs of how I use it) and just know that this is going to be a well-loved addition to my makeup collection.

The palette would make the most beautiful gift and gives the wearer the option to mix and match so many shades for so many different looks. The perfect palette for desk to dancefloor transformations.

September 2018 Glossybox Unboxing: Vlog style

Welcome to my September Glossybox unboxing video! This time, I wanted to do my video a little differently and decided to film it vlog style!

After an extremely hectic last few months and no sign of the rush slowing down any time soon, I didn’t fancy waiting until I had a few hours spare to set up my lighting and camera equipment. Instead, I opted to film it on my new camera that I’m so happy that I bought!

The box this month has a beautiful mix of products once again and even has a piece from the gorgeous Karl Lagerfeld + Model Co collection – a collection that went down very well in the RDMUA office! Alongside the Lagerfeld + Model Co piece is another gorgeous bundle of products ranging from makeup to haircare. The box includes a favourite hair treat of mine that I was introduced to last year that I’m sure many of you will absolutely love.

I hope that you enjoy my unboxing video above. Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button if you’re new and leave a like before you leave.
