My Face #7

I thought autumn was well and truly here and I had made my peace with the shorter days and colder weather. And then, Mother Nature suddenly decides to bestow upon us 20 degree weather, sunny days and cloudless skies, rendering my new winter boots, snuggly scarves and thick jumpers rather useless! Bearing that in mind, this installment in the My Face series was supposed to be a look at my current go-to make-up for autumn but, I guess it also works as an Indian Summer look either!

I've totally pared down my make-up over the last few weeks and have been enjoying finding many uses for the one product. I've been using the Laura Mercier Spellbound Face Illuminator as an all-over wash of colour for my lid. I discovered it on holiday, almost by accident, and ended up loving it as it really complements the same product when used as a cheek highlight. I really like how it looks, it warms up my face, is enough (but, not too much!) for daytime. It reminds me of a better toned MAC All That Glitters.

Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer*

A quick note on the bronzer: I was sent the Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer before I went away and didn't really consider it an option as it is in the shade 02 which is for olive/tanned skin which, quite clearly, I do not possess! However, I cracked it open the day before I went away as all my make-up was packed up and, holy cow, I love it. It's the most beautiful rich, warm bronze shade, not dissimilar to NARS Laguna but, a much better texture. And, at €9.99 it's a lot more pocket friendly!


  1. Lovely! Sp peachy and fresh. Also, you need MAC Teddy in your life - would be amazing on

  2. Wow that bronzer looks lovely! I'm surprised.
    Love this look on you. :)

  3. I have major brow envy, you look fab Sinead.
