How to use Comodynes to Get Gorgeous on the Go!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday to you! So much is going on right now, right?
Let's start with the Oscars, did you watch? This is the first time in decades, that I did not watch. Usually, I have a wee home watch party complete with ballots to vote on for who will get Best Picture.

Though, this year, there has been so much negativity and funk hoopla from Hollywood and the talents that I was just turned off by all their political campaigning, that I decided to break with decade old tradition and not watch. Sabo the artist who created this art installment has summed up some of my thoughts.

Instead, I worked on my own film! Now, thank you for your grace in the slowing down of Makeup University - I'm stretched so thin with the film that I could not maintain the daily posts for Makeup University but just a weekly digest until the film goes to release. Phew! Thank you!

Now, let's get to the products for this week. Meet Comodynes.

 Comodynes is a long standing and classic brand with much respect in the makeup artist industry. I doubt there is a pro makeup artist kit in the world that does not or has not at one point, contained the makeup remover wipes from Comodynes. Why? Because they are good!

 Comodynes 6-in-1 BB cream is pure perfection in a tube and I think it is more versatile for different types of skin types than other brands.

Have a beauty ritual before you leave home? Use moisturizing cream? A concealer? A foundation? BB Color Skin Perfector 6 in 1: moisturizes, corrects imperfections, soothens, evens skin tone and acts as a highlighter with SPF. A great look in just one easy step.

  • You'll never leave home without it. BB cream solution with multiple benefits.
  • Antioxidant protective action.
  • The equivalent of using 6 different products.

Don´t always remember to remove your make-up? Struggle to follow a skin cleansing routine? Comodynes make-up remover towelettes clean, tone, and moisturize skin in less than one minute.
  • In just one easy step they provide a complete facial cleanse.
  • One towelette is the equivalent of using a cleanser, toner, and eye make-up remover.
  • Formula suitable for both face and eyes

 OMG, I love these! So powerful and pack a punch in your purse! So, for those of you who are pulling very long days, keep one of these in your beauty bag - and when you go from one meeting to another and have 15 minutes in the middle of the meetings to freshen up, do this;
1) wipe face makeup off
2) wipe the easy peeling plus on  - while this sets on skin a few minutes, re-do eye and lip makeup, touch up hair
3) wipe on some Comodynes 6-in-1 BB cream ...spritz some perfume and go slay!
Achieve smooth and even skin with the exfoliating facial towelette that cleanses pores and eliminates dead skin cells. Single-dosage sizing is perfectly suited to fit into cosmetic cases, purses or bags. No more excuses!

  • Can be carried in a cosmetic case, purse, or bag.
So this Beauty Flash item is something that I am working to like. I've tried three different wee tubes and none of them sprayed. When I finally did get it on my face, I did like the effect , though I really struggled with the application. So don't take my word for it, get one and try for yourself.

Now, enjoy this week's video!

How to Get Spring Break Vegan Beauty

Hi ya Gorgeous!

This week on Makeup University I have some  healthy and natural skincare resources for you to help get your ready for Spring Break!

Woo hoo! I know my son is already planning the many ways he wants to spend his spring break days and I too have been thinking about how I am so looking forward to not having to do the mega commute that we do to school for him. Grace Grace!

So now, let me introduce you to Kneipp. This is a German skincare line that has been around for 125 years and has been a leader in holistic skincare.

I love the simplicity to the products and most importantly, the effectiveness! This truly is a skincare line for the whole family from babies to grand parents!

I took my samples with me on a snow play trip with my family and in this photo you see me holding the bottle of Arnica muscle rub and I'm here to tell you - it worked amazing and has a fresh herby scent - not a strong menthol scent.  It was effective on me and even my son enjoyed some of the Arnica oil on his sore legs!  Thank you Kneipp for making such great products. Note- it's pronounced KEN-NIPE!  So for spring break or an at home spa staycation, try some Kneipp for healthy body care and pampering!

Spring break is coming in a few weeks and that could mean some serious sun time or snow time depending on where you go. Something to note, you need to be wearing sunscreen.

There has been a lot of news about the sunscreens with a benzone base, a chemical ingredient that acts as a barrier actually does the opposite of sun cancer prevention and could be a contributor to skin cancer.  

 You can choose your preference in application from True Naturals, either a creamy lotion with spf 30 and a  light tropical caribbean coconut scent.  It's glueten and nano free, biodegradable and cruelty free.

Well, then it's time to go back to good ol' fashioned barrier sunscreens using zinc oxide. Meet True Naturals. These products are vegan, cruelty free and have a zinc oxide base to provide skin protection through a barrier - not a chemical. It  worked for a century on life guard noses, so it can be used today too!

The True Naturals brand is water resistant and note to self, be generous in your application and re-apply frequently. True Naturals is a green star winner for commitment to the environment and also ocean friendly due to the biodegradable ingredients.

Whether you are on the snowy slopes for spring break or a sunny beach, be sure and take some True Naturals sunscreen along the way with you!

Visit to get yours!

Now here is this week's video - enjoy!

Lavener body wash
Soft in Seconds hand cream
Joint&Muscle bath oil
Pure Bliss bubble bath
Eucalyptus mineral bath salt
Soft Skin Body Wash in almond blossom
Restoring Body Oil

Segment 2: True Naturals

Super Bowl 51: Patriots or Falcons - all need John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment

Hi ya Gorgeous...

OMG ...I just had the greatest Super Bowl post ever ... and Blogger choked, and even though I saved it ...the save is gone.

Gosh darn it! Well, here's the brief recap of what I had posted that got deleted.

Today is the Super Bowl game.
It is being played between the New England Patriots.

 The Atlanta Falcons will be in Houston Texas to do their best in the game.
The odds out of Las Vegas are to double down on the Patriots.

 Houston is a humid area and add in the cold weather that can make hair both dry and brittle even though in a humid condition. John Frieda has a new line of hair care in the Frizz Ease line that focuses on intense hydration to reverse surface dryness and help ease frizz.

 You can find John Frieda at mass retailers nationwide and always in the $10 or under range!

For those with curly hair that still gets frizzy, try the John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air=Dry Waves styling foam.  It's lightweight, non-sticky foam the enhances waves for a soft look that spares your hair from heat styling!

I am definitely a fan of the John Frieda brand and really liked using the Brilliant Brunette series over the summer to add a subtle highlight to my hair without processing it.

Please visit the John Frieda website to see a full range of products as well as chat with a hair expert if needed for product recommendations! Visit

Now, the last bit of chit chat paddywhack I had on that really well written post that got lost in Blogger was about this photo below. I would consider the Super Bowl a family event and something that we view together, my son and I. We are a modest household and I have to click away when the cheearleaders come on in their labia length shorts. This is pornographic and in the mainstream everyday television where it should be safe for a young boy to watch football.

Perhaps the cheerleaders could get shorts with an inseam of 3 inches? Or where a skirt? A skort? Anything that doesn't look like their panties. Which is what the kids call them when they see the cheerleaders come on screen.  "Look Momma, it's the panty girls!"... Great.
