I like makeup. I enjoy looking at it and playing with it. And some days makeup even lifts up my spirits and makes me feel a bit better. Does that ever happen to you? Things are going all wrong, or you feel sick, or the weather is horrible, and out comes the makeup and you just feel happier?

Any time of year is good for a new bronzer. While I have some deep cosmetic loyalties to eye makeup (mascara: Lancome Définicils – Black, primer/ shadow base: Trish McEvoy Eye Base – Sand, and eyeliner: Trish McEvoy Gel Eyeliner – Arabian Nights), I vacillate on face color. Yet ironically, bronzer is the type of makeup I’m most attached to. I usually have at least two powder bronzers and one cream (such as Becca Bronzing Skin Perfector)  in my makeup bag and several in my vanity. I do like blush, and I love eyeliner and mascara. But I’d be unhappy without bronzer.
