Mask Monday with Miss Spa Hydrate sheet mask

Hi ya Gorgeous!
I hope you had an awesome Father's Day celebration. Even for those who do not have a good relationship with a natural father figure, you can always go to Abba God and trust that He is a good good father!

I have really enjoyed blogging as much as I have these past weeks that my son has been road trippin' with his Grandparents across the United States. I'm writing this as he is en route to home!


I do have a the "Wine Wednesday" blogged and scheduled for you - and - I have a special event skincare blog post coming up for you, and there are some product reviews coming up also.

Though, for me, it's back to super summer Mom and Cub time! Oh Moms, especially you young moms with your lil bairns still nursing, listen to me, the time goes by so fast. I know. I know. Everyone says that and you are currently so tired beyond belief and there are so many sleepless nights!




But! Trust that it's just for a season and before you know it, you will have a tween who is planning on his 17th birthday party and how I can just put the birthday cake in a ziploc bag and he will eat it on his way to the Air Force Academy.  Whoa. Where does the time go?  I'm making it a greater priority now more than ever to soak in every moment I can with him because the time is short!

So speaking of short time, today is Monday and for me that means "mask" Monday. I have it scheduled on my Google calendar, synced to my phone, and also written in red ink on the desk calendar that I need to mask my skin. I have a plan to mask a minimum of 2 times a week and preferably 3!


I'm using the Miss Spa hydrate sheet mask and it's a must in the super dry, hot, windy Arizona weather! I sit down to read or watch a show and let the mask set, then pull off the paper and massage any serum left on from the mask into my skin and finish with my moisturizer.




 If you need a great mask, try this, I get mine on Amazon or you can find at Ulta Beauty!  Plus...I have seen a section at Walmart that has a wide assortment of facial masks! No excuses! Take good care of you!

Because you are worth it!

Pickle slush from Sonic Drive In - First Impression!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Oh girl - it is so hot here. Like Arizona went from luke warm to 113 over night! I've been in Burbank and it was warm and humid, but doable. Then I went down to Oceanside and it was 68! Cloudy! I was in love!  I swear, I have such a fascination with the weather, I just may start a second career and call the days weather because it's just so dang interesting!

Now, lately, MakeupUniversity has taken a summer stroll from the normal makeup, how to, review, hair and skincare with some fragrance posts to a Wine Wednesday format and some First Impressions - this video and blog post are about my first impression of the new flavor at Sonic Drive In. Pickle!

Wine Wednesday with Guenoc from Gelson's in Hollywood

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Wednesday! Before I get started on the wine review, a very deep and heartfelt thank you to the men who fought in the battle of Normandy on this day, freedom is not free! Thank you veterans!


I am home for a few days before launching out again - and this wine and photo is from the recent trip to Burbank. Before I got started to work, after a long but easy drive from Arizona to Burbank, I went for a 6 mile uphill hike to the Hollywood sign.


 Oh such a good time! As nerdy as it sounds, I was so overcome by the beauty, the flora, fauna, foliage, animals and people I met a long the trail. I hiked 2 of 3 legs of the Hollyridge trail and oh if only I had more time I would have completed the Mt. Ada and Bronson caves trails too!

Now for the video, this wine, Guenoc was a delightful find to kick off a short Shabbat and rest my aching self from the hike. I really need to work on my fitness more!

Mally Beauty and JustJudyHB - the musings of an actress

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Tuesday! There is a large part of me that can hardly believe that the month is June.

So the weekend was very busy and productive and though I primarily worked on my tv series, Finding Chupa, I also squeezed in a few beauty blogger videos with some samples that MakeupUniversity recently received from Mally Beauty.




I had the pleasure of working with the multi talented actress, host and model, Judy Deaton. She plays Betty Bonfire in Finding Chupa, recounting the time at camp when she knows she encountered the chupacabra.

You can find out more about Finding Chupa at the Facebook page:
http://facebook.com/findingchupa





Today's video I am demonstrating some samples I received from Mally Beauty - when the PR originally reached out about Mallywood, they didn't have any samples so they sent me a mascara which I did not like and is covered in a previous video, then a highlight palette and concealer instead.


 Follow the acting journey of Judy on her socials  @JustJudyHB





Finally, in sad news, today the wonderful, talented, mother, daughter, icon, fashion trend setter Kate Spade died today of suicide by hanging. This is heartbreaking.



There is always hope, even in the darkest of dark places. Please, if you are hurting - reach out now - don't wait - call now.

Guize Face FX and I the Movie featuring Allergy Actress Mary Beth Eversole

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Oh Monday - you are so awesome! Today's blog post features the Guize Face FX palette in Moonlight that I received as a sample. I took it with me to Burbank for an event with AT&T for SHAPE.


It was such a delight to spend time with Mary Beth and here her story of how trauma entered her life and how she began the healing process. Then, she took it a step further to help others who are living and dealing with pain and trauma in their lives by writing a screenplay about her personal experience. Now she is telling the stories of those who have wrote in with their testimony of how trauma entered their lives and looking for solutions to heal.




Wait - before we get into that - if you are new, welcome, if not, welcome back and if you haven't subscribed yet to Makeup University or subscribed to our newsletter, please do!



This video features Allergy Actress, Mary Beth Eversole who was generous with her time and sat for an interview, and a makeup review while I test the palette, which is amazing and worth $40!

Then, to add to the fun - the camera is being run by NerdSoul - your one stop spot on the internet for all hip hop geek culture and trends.



Mary Beth and I talk about her film, I the movie, which is a journey into healing trauma in self and soul. It's currently in it's fundraising stage, so please click this link and donate - every dollar matters and will get this project produced so the healing can begin for those who see it!
