Daphne Du Maurier has long been my favourite author. From her famed Rebecca to lesser known but just as magical Frenchman’s Creek, her books often centre around an intriguing female character and My Cousin Rachel is no exception.

Hitting cinemas this Friday, I wanted to celebrate the movie by creating an interpretation of Rachel- not to give too much away, my beauty look is all about presenting her demure self before being able to transform her look to appear darker with veritable ease.

Rachel Weisz plays Rachel Ashley while Sam Claflin takes on the role of Philip, who plots revenge on Ashley whom he is suspicious of after his guardian (Rachel’s husband)’s death. His plan soon goes awry however once he falls under the spells of her charm.

You can watch my video on the look here:

A fabulous mystery-romance, it’s a must-read for fans of Rebecca and I’m sure the film will be just as haunting and charming in equal measure! Let me know if you enjoyed the book!
