Red flushed skin? Try Dear by Renee Youth Soothing Creme

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday!

How's your March Madness going? Are you and the family on spring break or following the tournaments or are you preparing for a busy Passover and Easter season?  I swear - everything seems to happen at once!

So I have a wee bit more time to beauty blog this month now that my film, 8 Days in Havasu has officially landed on Amazon! I have a wee break til production begins on Arise Annalynn next month meaning ...time to experiment with some new products!

Meet  Dear by Renee Youth Soothing Creme! 

It can be used on skin that has psoriasis and on skin that gets red and blotchy.  I have redness from years of sun scars from being in the desert sun and not re-applying my sun screen. See, that's the secret, you have to reapply to get the true benefit and adding a hat doesn't hurt either!

Here are some details about the Dear by Renee Youth Soothing Creme - I must say, I really like the creme. It's called a creme though to me it has a gel like texture and is hydrating, soothing, feels good, wears good alone and under makeup and over all - I like it!

Details below and get yours on the website  Dear by Renee.  On the website it is $74.95 for 1.7 ounces.

Best for All Skin Types in Anti-Aging, Soothing, Hydrating, also Great for Sensitive, Dehydrated, Allergy-prone Skin.
Infusion of Hollywood celebrity favoured Arnica Extract, Youth Soothing Crème contains several active components that hydrates and soothes dehydrated, itchy, or red skin. It is also a wonderful moisturizer for seasonal transitions
  • Look Young & Radiant: The special properties of Blackcurrant Seed oil and Balloon Vine extract in combination with Sunflower Oil Concentrate effectively reduce inflammatory processes and replenish the damaged skin barrier. Tego Stemlastin stimulates epidermal stem cells and dermal fibroblasts. This premium crème stops accelerated skin aging (inflamm-ageing).
  • Fabulous Soothing & Anti-inflammatory: Hollywood celebrity favoured Arnica Extract Offers anti-inflammatory and stimulating activity, normalizes superficial microcirculation, and activates the reabsorption of cutaneous blood effusion (bruises). It enhances the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness
  • Enhance Skin Health: Delisens Solution, an innovative hexapeptide, relieves itching while helping sensitive skin to recover its physiological tolerance threshold. Cistus Incanus Extract protects DNA, provides anti-inflammatory effects, delivers daylight defense, and protects from environmental stress.
  • Bring Hydration Back to Skin:  Defensil®-Plus markedly relieves dry, itchy, allergy-prone skin. A synergistic complex of yeast and several botanical extracts rich in saponosides and flavonoids, strengthens capillaries, reinforces their resistance and reactivates microcirculation, which restores proper moisture balance and improves skin elasticity

Spring Break GRWM and Essence Cosmetics

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Ok you spring breakers- how much fun are you having?  How awesome is your adventure? Do tell because my son's school does NOT have a spring break and we are home...while our family friends are out enjoying beach time, camping, Legoland and beyond. Oy!

So today I have a fun GRWM video demo for you to get some spring break makeup or better yet, get your Coachella music festival look on that won't break the budget!

So the video features a look of the day using all of the products in this photo for an easy Coachella look! Enjoy!

Now this lil stick is the belle of the ball! Meet the Essence Cosmetics Prismatic Hololighter!

It's creamy, blends well, and I have used it under makeup, under shadows, over makeup and over shadows, then on my lips and on the bow of the mouth and anywhere that I felt like needed a little pop of shine!  Love this - and it's a must for spring break and music festivals! $5.99 at Ulta Beauty or on the website.

 I love a creme shadow and a great way to extend your long day of spring break celebrations of being out at a music festival all day, is to start with a creme and then layer a powder shadow over it as the day wears on.  From left to right the colors are: Stars and Stories, 1 second to mars, and solar explosion.  These metal inspired creme shadows are soft, long wearing, have good shimmer and wear well!  Find them on Ulta Beauty or  for $4.99

Now all long adventures need long wearing lipstick so you look good and don't have to worry about reapplying. These essence makeup lipsticks are smooth and butter on the mouth and wear for a full day through eating and talking. I did need to reapply a bit mid day to keep my lips moist, though the color was still there! These are $4.99 on the website and at Ulta Beauty.
These colors from left to right in the photo:  SO UN GREY-FUL, EVERLASTING LOVE and my fave, ETERNAL BEAUTY.

Dang! Dirtybird Energy - what spring break needs!

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Whoa! So much going on this month - it's March and that means March Madness, St. Patrick's Day, spring break, and the month ends with Passover and Easter!  Holy smokes that's a lot of celebrating!

So, my son's school does not do a spring break and it's a bit of a buzz kill. We like to travel and take wee trips to visit family and friends and this whole 'no spring break" stinks!  The trade off is he only goes to school 4 days a week. So there's that.

Now, I just received some samples from Dirtybird Energy, and these soaps are amazing. I'm so glad I got a chance to experience this brand. It's one of my favorite things about doing Makeup University - I get to meet new products that in normal every day makeup work, I may not meet!  My samples came as a 4 pack with one of each scent and formulation that Dirtybird Energy makes.

This soap is so big. It fits my whole hand. Speaking of whole - this soap is for the whole family but the size is definitely man sized!

The bar is a generous 5.5 ounce size (156 g) and retails on the website for $5.99 each or a multi 4 pack sells for $23.50.

I've already tested the Original formulation and like the lather, rinse and clean but not dry feeling on my skin. My son used the bar and likes the chicken foot imprint as well as the "zingy" feel of the soap formulation.

The black plastic case the soap comes in, is reusable, recyclable and the soap is made in the USA.
So this soap is ready to travel on spring break trips, or be used in the locker room during March Madness games and when the soap is all gone, you can store some LEGO in the black tub.

So why the caffeine and how does it make Dirtybird special?  More on that in a paste of info from their website - on me - I did not notice a big difference. But - I'm exhausted from a super hard hike yesterday, I took a benadryl for a weird itchy scalp thing I have going on, and normally, I mainline espresso.  I don't fault the soap for not making me zippy because there was a lot stacked against it.

Final thoughts from me before I paste in the brand info: I really really like these soaps. I'm a soap fan to begin with, so this product had to really impress me to actually get me to say that I like it and I would buy it. Yup. They can take my money.

I think these are perfect gifts- especially for Mother's day - 'cause Moms are tired. Perfect for graduation day because those kids be needing a boost after the graduation celebrations and because I love hand made, USA, good stuff for the body, and I think Dirtybird Energy is it.

Also, if you turn the black tub over and read the ingredients - there's some humor hidden in there and I think that attention to detail means from the start of the soap making process to the finish, there is attention to what matters in this product. Buy some for you and buy some to give - you won't be disappointed.

Now for some brand info:

Why Caffeine?  When caffeine is applied to your soap it has antioxidant properties that is great for your skin and when absorbed it ENERGIZES your skin and body.  The amount of absorption varies from person to person and shower to shower.  The DIRTYBIRD ENERGY bar of soap is a great way to ENERGIZE before your first cup of coffee.
THE CONTAINER:  The soap isn't the only thing that's special. DIRTYBIRD ENERGY soap comes packaged in our patented reusable container, that snaps shut and allows you to take your soap anywhere; the gym, camping, vacation, anywhere.

About the Original:
Give your body the boost to get up and go with DIRTYBIRD Energy Soap. This supercharged body bar helps to deliver some get-up-and-GO to your morning routine and post-workout scrub-down with a burst of CAFFEINE and Peppermint. Can you eat it? NO! But you can finally enjoy every last minute of your daily shower. Formulated with Jojoba beads, this power-packed soap will effectively scrub and smooth away dry, rough skin, preparing your body to best absorb the stimulating, skin-tightening effects of Caffeine while Palm Oil and Coconut Oil deliver an abundance of rich moisturizers to leave your skin feeling comfortable and soft after every use.

TGIF with Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick - what your spring break needs!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Friday! TGIF! Oh Friyay!

Woo hoo!  Ok, so now that you know I am ready for the weekend - here is what's on my lips for the weekend work and adventure!

I recently received some samples from Highlight Cosmetics of their new liquid lipsticks.

There are 2 neutral shades and one with a hint of highlight.  I've worn these several times through talking, working as an emcee, eating, sipping wine and again, talking.  The wear is phenomenal - so be careful in how you paint this on your mouth because where you put it - it's going to stay!

From left to right on my lips: Sandstone Cashmere, Terracotta Dream ( fave) and Desert Mirage.

The application goes on smooth and the color dries down to a matte look and then after a short bit it becomes dry on the lip and I have needed to reapply a slickery gloss over it.  Note to you - the original application of Highlight cosmetics liquid lip, stayed on, and in place when I applied my sheer gloss over the top to give my lips some moisture.

I like the lip glosses enough to say that if you like liquid lipsticks, you may like these too!

Here are some details from the Highlight Cosmetics website about the lipsticks:

The NATURAL infusion of TURMERIC, GREEN TEA, WHITE TEA, SEA KELP, and a BENEFIT PEPTIDE will give your lips a soft, moist, and smooth finish.
A high performance liquid lipstick that lies above all others. Made in USA, cruelty free, gluten free & paraben free!
These are available exclusively on the Highlight Cosmetics website and are currently on sale for $14.99 each!v

How to Gua Sha Lymphatic Drainage Massage at home with Nature's Secret

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Happy day to you! How is your March going?  Mine feels like it is moving a year per day while I wait to hear back from some film festivals on projects being accepted.  In this post I'm going to share with you about this new jade roller I'm using and my latest film project.

If you like, you can see the latest short inspiring film, 8 Days in Havasu, using this link here! 
It's available on Vimeo now and going to Amazon by the end of the month.

Now in a commitment to a healthier self care regime, I tested a jade roller from Nature's Secret to do at home Gua Sha lymphatic drainage massage.  I know I'm over worked and stressed beyond belief and getting in for a full body massage is next to impossible. But! I can do some ancient Chinese secret to health and beauty massage at home using the Gua Sha technique.

I have two videos for you demonstrating both the jade roller and the Gua Sha tool.

This first video shows you how to do the Gua Sha lymphatic drainage facial massage using the flat with notch jade tool.  The secret is to do it nightly or at a minimum 3 times per week and using light pressure.

To clean your tool, simply rinse it off and wipe clean.  You can keep it in the refrigerator for added coolness  to the touch, though I find that the natural stone has a cool feel to it, naturally!

The next video is demonstrating the jade roller technique. Both of these tools come in the Nature's Secret box set and can be used interchangeably for your health and skin care.

To really see benefits from the Nature's Secret tools - you need to use them - consistently. If needed, perhaps keep it by the bedside so you use it right before sleeping?

You can order your set on Amazon and once it arrives, open the box, rinse the tools, dry - prep your skin and get started to better looking skin!

Clairol Root Touch Up - via Influenster - super easy to use

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy March!
Who else is ready for all the goodness this month?  I know I am - and I'm so looking forward to what's ahead.

I received a free sample from Influenster, of the new color powder compact with applicator brush for grey hairs and growing roots in your hair color from Clairol.

This sells for about $10 at Walmart and is super easy to use and it's compact, so if you need to carry it with you in your purse, say - because you do your roots with it in the morning for work but are going to the gym and then out after work, the small compact is easy to carry with a stiff snap so it won't break open in your purse!

I like the idea of a way to extend your color an extra week in between treatments.  Or if you are just starting to get a few grey hairs, no worries. You can easily color them to match the rest of your hair with this easy to use root touch up system from Clairol.

Easy peasy! Lemon squeezy! Just in time for a busy spring season! 

Thank you Clairol and Influenster for the free sample in exchange for my honest opinion!

How Does Doe Deere Spend Her Day?

Hi ya Gorgeous!

I have a guest post to share with you an encouraging word of how hard work and perseverance can pay off!

Enjoy this and let yourself be encouraged as you pursue your passions!

How Doe Deere spends her day
Doe Deere is more than a fashion diva and giant in the field of beauty and cosmetics. She's a successful entrepreneur who has a mind for business and glamour. She is not afraid to be extravagant, bold and creative and encourages other women to unlock their inner potential, reach for the stars and live a successful life.

All of that is nothing new for the Izhevsk, Russia native. As a young girl she tapped into her imagination and entrepreneurial spirit. One evening Deere and a group of her friends enjoyed a slumber party while dressing up as witches. That party got her interested in cosmetics and led to her starting her own business while just a grade school student. Deere developed her own line of temporary tattoos and sold them to her classmates, marketing them as "cool."

When Deere turned 17, she left Russia behind and emigrated to the United States, landing in New York City to pursue a career with her band, sky Salt. One of the band members, Mark, is now Deere's husband and serves as president of the couple's cosmetic company, Lime Crime.

With all her success, Deere starts the day like most of us. She wakes up each morning in her Los Angeles home without fail at 8:30 a.m. (no alarm lock needed). Deere, a self-proclaimed morning person, says she enjoys waking up after a restful night's sleep. The first thing she does is drink an entire glass of water. Los Angeles has a relatively dry climate, so staying fully hydrated is important in order to stay healthy. Deere then might spend a few minutes admiring nature from a window before doing a series of stretching exercises and enjoying breakfast, which usually includes grits, yogurt and freshly squeezed juice that comes from one the orange trees in her backyard.

After breakfast, Deere turns her attention to business. She speaks with her employees, who she considers family, via a closed internet system and responds to emails. An avid user of Instagram, Deere checks the social network to see not only what's happening in the world but to spot what's trending as well.

After all that is done, Deere begins to prepare for the day. She takes her showers before going to bed, allowing her hair to dry naturally overnight. Cranking up some music (Deere is currently enjoying songs by The Beatles), she uses a curling iron to style her hair in her signature looks – loose and with large curls.

Deere then turns her attention to her makeup. First things first, she washes and moisturizes her face every day. Next comes foundation, which Lime Crime will soon offer. She then fills in her eyebrows and applies blush and lipstick, usually in red or pink.

Before leaving for the office, Deere spends some quality time with her two cats, showering them with love and affection. She arrives at work at noon, where she has lunch and discussions with her team. Deere then spends the rest of the day in meetings before leaving the office at 6 p.m., or sometimes later, depending upon what is on her agenda.

In Need of a Spring Break Lippie? Try the New Essence Cosmetics Butter Stick Lip Gloss

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Oh wow! Long time no chit chat! I am doing my best to get a post up on Monday - and here it is...Wednesday! My deep apologies! Though, I have good reason for missing the deadline.

I have been pressing forward in media and film making and I have a new short film, that is a family friendly positive encouraging "got get 'em" attitude of a story!

I'm so excited for 8 Days in Havasu to release on Amazon March 15th!

I took my samples from Essence Cosmetics - by the way, thank you very much Essence Cosmetics for these lovely samples! I loved mine, and then I took them to set to show the talent, and they loved too!

I'm short some colors because the talent loved!

So I have two videos for you - a lil vignette from the beach shoot with talent Leah Nead and also the full review from me

This video features these new matte and glossy shea butter infused lip "sticks"! These are available at Ulta Beauty or through the Essence Cosmetics website and average $3.99! I received these as free samples for a review and I'm so glad I got to try them! The colors featured in the video are: strawberry, dark syrup, hot cocoa, berry gold and the dark glossy brown did not have a name on it! I used these in my latest film, 8 Days in Havasu with lead actress Leah Nead! You can see her video on the Facebook page,

MyChelle Beauty Key 3 -what Valentine's Day skin needs now

Hi ya Gorgeous!

TGIF! It's so hot in Arizona right now and it's not even summer!  Valentine's Day is coming up next week and if you need a simple way to prepare your skin to look your best on date night, look no further than MyChelle Dermaceuticals.

These skincare products are bioactive, ethically sourced and formulated with high performance ingredients - like plant stem cells, peptides and vitamins in their most potent forms for superior results and natural healthy skin.

I'm a big serum user and lover and whoa do these ever work! I noticed results in the first day of using morning and night, the following morning, my skin texture was smoother and more vibrant.

I'm loving that the Retinal serum really looks and smells like it contains turmeric and ginger.

I tried samples of the Perfect C Serum 17% and it smells good and feels good!  I also tried the Remarkable Retinal Serum and it could possible be the culprit behind improving the texture of my skin.

All of the MyChelle products are certified gluten free, cruelty free, vegan and non-gmo.  These products are good for your skin and good for the planet.

My final sample I received is the Sun Shield SPF 28 Unscented and it uses titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as natural mineral barriers on the skin to the sun.  I do like it, though I don't love it.  This sunscreen does not contain any oxybenzone or avobenzone chemical ingredients making it reef safe and human safe too!

I'm definitely looking at more MyChelle Dermaceuticals to add to my skincare regime!
If you need to get a quick jumpstart on amazing skin for Valentine's Day, try some MyChelle Dermaceuticals, available online on their website, Amazon or at Whole Foods!

Meet MLK2.0 by David Litwin book review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday and February! To say that the time is flying by is an understatement!  I'm so glad for the great activity, though a part of me is ready to just sit and relax in my chair and read a book!

Oh, wait - I did just do that! I just read the book MLK2.0 by David Litwin.  Wow is it ever action item packed and something that you could really benefit by reading!

It's available on Amazon for paperback or Kindle edition.  What I liked best about the book, is the message of hope. Not in the way like Red in The Shawshank Redemption talks about hope, but in the sense that you can truly help yourself, right now, where you are at with what you have kind of hope.

It's really important that in the ayin season that we are in, that you make the most of each moment that comes your way and be listening and tuned in to what your next step is.  So how do you know what the next step is and how to listen to it? Easy. You prepare yourself!  This wee read is a tool to help you, help yourself.

It's a short and easy read with action items that you can do right now! So what are you waiting for? Get started today on MLK2.0 by David Litwin.

Watch the video and see! other news, since I haven't updated in awhile I also included a wee bit of review on the L'Oreal Feria GlamGrunge hair color in Denim. Nope. Not at all. More like Grungy Elvis Presley!  My hair is not one shade of blue, more like, multi-shades of black!

Okay, it's going to be a very long grow out and cut, grow out and cut, grow out and cut, grow out and cut season for me. Be praying!

Green Goo and You! What you and your Valentine need!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy final week of January! How was it for you? Mine was fast and furious with the work trips to CES in Las Vegas and then Park City Utah for Sundance.


I came home to some lovely samples from Green Goo Helps - in my humble opinion one of the best natural skincare products that really focuses on healing the skin and is made in the USA!

Check out the Makeup University Facebook page for a Facebook Live session demonstrating the products!

Now, meet Green Goo Bath Salts in Relief with eucalyptus and mint!

Our Mineral Bath Salts are harvested from the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Evaporated by the sun and ocean air, this all-natural sea salt has a lovely trace mineral content that produces a beautiful, high quality bath salt. Well known for easing muscle tension and promoting overall relaxation. Perfect for soothing sore muscles, relaxing soaks, and calming foot baths.
Eucalyptus revitalizes sore, achy muscles and helps to clear and soothe congestion. Relax, relieve, and enjoy the tranquility.   16 ounces for $27.95

My experience:  I'm not a bath tub soaker kinda gal - there's just something about sitting in your own stew.  But, I do like to get my fancy home foot spa out and fill it up with goodies like this Green Goo bath salts!  The smell is amazing and the aromatherapeutic properties of the eucalyptus and mint wafts up to my nose so I get the benefits of the foot soak as well as the scent.  I know it's supposed to be "relief" but I found it invigorating! 

A delicious blend of organic oil and herbs, with mineral sea salt, designed to gently exfoliate and moisturize your skin while improving circulation, leaving you with a soft, youthful, nourished glow.
Rise Up with grapefruit, bergamot, and ginger as it energizes your senses while warming the body.
Rise Up Like The Sun.

My story: OMG!  This is one of my all time favorite type of body products next to really good creams.  I tried this as a hand scrub, foot scrub and then my entire body. It's vigorous love in a tub. The scent is warm, bright, invigorating and the texture of the scrub is a gritty smooth. Does that make sense? It's scrubby without being ouchy. The best part? It's oily.  It's got enough oil and oil reserve in the tub to make a nice paste to place on a rough body part and give a good rubbin'.  I'm in lovin'! 

With all of the products from Green Goo, you can trust the ingredients to be  natural, gluten free, cruelty free, and that the containers are made from recycled ingredients. It's just good stuff from Lyons Colorado!

If you get to the website now, you can get some gifts in time for Valentine's Day!

Go get it!

Have You Tried Serendipity Skincare?

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Oh this 2018 is a real go getter! I've been on the go since it started and I kicked off the year with a DJ gig on New Year's Eve!  So fun!  After that it's been one amazing event after another and I'm so looking forward to what February has in store for me!

Now, that cold snowy but dry Utah weather did a number on my skin!  Good thing I came home to a sample of Serendipity Serenade repairing night cream!

I've used it a couple of nights now and love the rich and creamy texture, very light scent and how hydrating it feels on my skin. Join me on the Makeup University Facebook page for a Facebook Live where I will be showing you the product close up!

Here's a little note from the Serendipity website:

A potent yet gentle blend of invigorating natura ingredients including cotton thistle and palm tree extract gives your skin a boost in the battle against dry, damaged skin. Use overnight for a visibly radiant and refreshed complexion.
$75.00  for 1 ounce.

It's important to take care of your skin with a good regimen of cleaning, treating and moisturizing! So no matter who's brand you use, just be sure and use it daily!

Now for comparison, I have used a different brand for a long time, and it is a 1.7 ounce tub for the same price, and can be found at Ulta Beauty for a little bit less in price. So, I'm expecting this cream to out perform my normal brand for selling at the same price point while providing less product.  Stay tuned!
