Hi ya GorgeousHow’s your Monday now? Or should I say, how’s your summer? Here in Arizona, the summer is in full broil and school for the cub starts back in 3  short weeks …or are they short? He is definitely ready to go back and see his friends which brings to mind the question that year round school, with a 2 week break in between semesters would do just fine. On to the makeup!

I recently received some very lovely samples from LORAC of their color story collection for the reboot of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Something to know going forward, I am ride or die for the original
1990’s animated version and none to thrilled about another warmed over
version of an Oscar winning trophy of a film.  In short, I have not seen the film yet, and when it arrives on Netflix, I will let you know my thoughts.

In the meantime, I think that LORAC has knocked it out of the park again, with Disney, and another amazing, collector edition of a makeup color story for a film. I was SO impressed with the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales collection ,though this is just as stunning.

 

I have the eyeshadow pallet, cheek color palette, lipglosses and lipsticks and I’m beyond delighted! The colors are everyday perfect and if you know LORAC products, you know how soft, silky, smooth, blendable, pigmented, wet or dry they are!

 

I love all of the lip colors and the lipsticks or lip glosses can be worn alone, with liner, paired together or mixed and matched!

If you are a fan of anything Disney, Belle, Beast, the film or LORAC and special editions, rush to get these now because who knows how long they will be around!

Remember to let me know in the comments – if you were going to buy a film makeup color story – what products do you want to buy?

I’m
asking for your help so as I develop the makeup color story for BEARLY
film, Jael, ZBoy and Nascar Nights – I want to be sure and create the
top products that people are most interested in buying!

Personally, I live in bronzer and gloss – so those are top items for me to create! Looking forward to your thoughts!

These items are available on Amazon – if you need free shipping:
Lipgloss $34.00 http://amzn.to/2tzhNki
Cheeks $28.00 http://amzn.to/2utaA9X

Find these items at http://loraccosmetics.com or Ulta Beauty!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday. Whoa. Do I ever love a Monday. You know, I get more accomplished on a Monday than I do all week! Or at least that is what it  feels like!

Today is no different – I have already got massive action taken on many things and goals and even got the wheels turning on a return to the Monday blog and video posts for Makeup University.

In case you didn’t know, I have been in Tucson for the past three weeks while my son attended the University of Arizona for tech camp and I completed production on BEARLY film.

Phew!

So in this blog post and video – meet the moisturizer known as

L’Oreal Revitalift  Triple Power Deep-Acting Facial Moisturizer!

This is a free sample from Influenster and  I arrived home to it. Oh if only I had this in Tucson with me! It was so hot and dry there my skin became dryer and itchy!

In my #RevitaliftChallenge – I’m using the sample twice a day for 14 days with photos along the journey to track the results. So far I’m loving it!  This product does have a  heavy perfume scent – I can smell my face for about an  hour after applying. The scent does not bother me though if you are sensitive to smells, this could  be an issue for you.

You can find L’Oreal Revitalift and  other goodies at mass retailers nationwide OR – be cool and stay home and just have it auto-delivered by Amazon!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Whoa! This month! This year! Not complaining though it’s been jam packed and has me going every which way! 

This video gives you a wee update, and then a last minute Mother’s Day gift idea with Dove soaps – which are classic beauty.

 

Finally, meet Humble Brush – omg – I love these and I’m so glad i got a chance to sample and meet this brand. They are doing what we need to be doing in conservation. I never even thought about how much plastic I throw away when it comes to a dozen toothbrushes a year.

Humble Brush has won several awards and continues to make an impact! The hand is biodegradable, the packaging is compostable, the process of the bamboo is sustainable and the bristles are BPA free!

When you buy a Humble Brush – the sale creates a free gift of a toothbrush to a child in need worldwide.  Available on the Humble Brush website or Amazon.
#humblebrush

Finally, I read a book a week and Makeup University has run several book reading clubs and challenges! Summer is here and now is the best time to challenge your children to keep reading over the summer months!

I recently read The Road Back To You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. It’s about the “enneagram” and how you find a number that correlates to your personality and ways to enhance yourself or heal yourself. It is a slow starter – but stick with it – it finishes strong! From the Amazon description: The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny
accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and
negatively.

Now let’s watch the video!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
The Mother’s Day weekend a’la my birthday weekend is upon us! True, it’s Thursday and perhaps a bit early – but no worries – there is still plenty of time to kick start the party!I’m doin’ up my do with the L’Anza Keratin Healing Oil Lustrous Finishing Spray and L’Anza Healing Style Dry Texture Spray in  a two step style to go from day to night.

The day time luncheon event I am wearing my hair down and then for the evening I am doing a half updo with messy braids.

The L’Anza dry texture spray gives some “grit” or grip to the hair which makes the braids hold better when I pull the hairs to make them wide.

The L’Anza healing oil gives the lightest sheen and nourishing oil to the hair while fighting frizz and fuzz out from humidity.  My desert home doesn’t really have humidity though when the party moves down to the river for a concert – I’m going to want humidity help!

I’ve been a fan of L’Anza since college, the first time when  I had bleached my hair to there and back! The L’Anza shampoo and conditioner helped my fried hair not look so fried!

Here’s a bit more about L’Anza – oh, and remember, get some from your local Ulta Beauty or off Amazon today! It’s a perfect gift for you or your momma!

P.S.  Stay tuned to my Instagram or Twitter for the styles of the birthday party!

FROM TREATMENT TO HEALING

L’ANZA was introduced to the beauty industry as one of the first
professional haircare brands specifically designed to address individual
hair needs. Using the proprietary Keratin Bond System,
L’ANZA was able to target the causes of hair damage, not just the
symptoms. L’ANZA built upon this tradition of keratin, incorporating the
latest in haircare ingredient technology, as well as wild-crafted and
sustainable planted-based ingredients, creating the Keratin Healing System
(KHS). With the power of Keratin Amino Acids, Healing Actives, and
Triple UV Protection (UVA, UVB, UVC), Nano Science 10² delivery system,
sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free Shampoos, KHS has become the
foundation for all L’ANZA products.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Who loves swimsuit season? Who loves bikini time? Not me. Not me in the slightest. I love summer and all of the opportunities to be outside in the pool, to stand up paddle board and not be in a wetsuit, ocean swimming and some serious snorkeling!Before you dread the season, don’t buy anything to swim in and sit in the deck chair instead of getting into the pool because you hate how you look in a bathing suit – wait. Read below. I have some tips on how to pick a great suit to feel confident in even if you don’t have a body that looks like what mainstream media and magazines airbrush and sell to us!

 

The secret is, getting separate pieces – the size you need for the body part that needs it! I got mine from Sunsets Separates.

I need a larger top than I do bottom and I got that easily with Sunset Separates!

My number one tip for selecting a swimsuit is know the use you are going to do in it! Teeny string bikinis are not the best for ocean snorkeling because a wave can whip it off your body in one fell swoop!

Gals with a fuller bust or bottom, you need something with support and double stitching!

Darker colors do make you look slimmer, if you care about that – and I personally took a big jumbo risk by finally, not getting a plain black swimsuit! I got all of these fun colors and print too!

It’s more important to get in the water and play with the family and enjoy the moment rather than sit out because you don’t want to be seen in a swim suit.  Go get ’em girls!

Now, an exhaustive bathing suit guide can be found here, check it if you need to!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Today, Coachella wraps up another year of music and art. Kendrick Lamar and Lorde are on today’s line up.  I went to the first year that Coachella was created and have not been back yet. I really appreciate the free passes shared to attend, though I think the event is a bit much for my son to attend at this age. I’m thinking next year, the 13 year old will appreciate the event and perhaps we will go.For those of you who are there now, I hope you have planned your after care for the post Coachella effect.
The highs of the event are so high! There is so much stimulation to all of your senses from the sound and sights, smells and tastes.  So here’s a bit of help to get you acclimated to everyday life after you leave.Hydrate inside and out!  Now is a good time to add an electrolyte drink to your next 48 hours.
For skin, try the new Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask with raw coconut sugar. It’s paraben, phthalate, mineral oil, sulfate, gluten and dye free. Nothing but hydrating goodness in this mask and a great way to quench the thirst of your parched skin!

After the mask, which you can also use on hands or anywhere that your body has dry skin – apply the Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer. It’s formulated with ethically and sustainable sourced ingredients.  The bottle says 24 hour moisture, though I would reapply as needed.

It’s a super light weight formula but packs a punch of hydration to it!

For your hair and scalp, heal the desert sun damage with the Palmer’s Coconut Oil – it is marked for a facial oil, though this can be applied anywhere on the body, scalp and hair included!

This Cocnut Oil is a blend of extra virgin coconut oil, tahitian monoi oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, maracuja oil, sunflower oil, apricot oil and sesame oil.  The smell is delicious and the oil is nourishing! Your dry braided tight hair with the glitter roots will drink this up!

Put a dropper full of oil in your palm, rub them together and then smooth over your hair and work from the ends to the scalp!  Let it sit for a as long as possible before washing out.

 

This cleansing balm that is new from Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula reminds me so much of the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm. It melts into your skin and gives a good deep clean but gently. This product thoroughly removed long wearing foundation and long wearing mascara. If that sounds like your Coachella weekend makeup, get some of this to help remove the desert dirt from your skin.

After all of the hydration of your skin, inside and out, you will feel refreshed and ready to reflect on the memories you made during Coachella.

You never know, I just may see you out there next year!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
TGIF!
Whoa. Okay. I can explain. No need for excuses. Though here it goes. In the beginning of 2017, I said I would only be posting on Monday due to my busy schedule with my feature film, Jael A Western Tale.  I am finished with the script, there are still a few roles to cast and then, the forever list of details that need to be managed and completed to get us to production!
You can learn more about it on it’s Facebook page here: http://facebook.com/jaelawesterntaleThis week, the focus is on the Influenster Vox Box from Lancome. Oh such sweet goodies!

I received these products for free as a gift to review and give my honest opinion. I can honestly say that I don’t really like the liquid form of the foundation but this stick is a dream! It’s a semi matte finish and dries down powdery without caking in face creases. Bonus! Then the concealer is thicker than my normal  brand but for those who need more coverage, I think you will enjoy the consistency, coverage and wear time! Which is long! I’m amazed by the click highlighter pen which when you click the button on the end it oozes out a bit of rose and gold shimmer liquid which more like a veil wash of color and highlight than an actual highlight powder or cream. I used it all over my face!  Finally, the lip gloss is light and can be work alone, over a lipstick or lip liner. It’s so versatile and perfect for your spring and summer looks! So like Lancome says, Don’t Glow It Alone!

Get yours at a Lancome counter near you or visit http://lancome.com

So part of my current over whelm is that while I am watching my feature film slowly … oh … so…slowly make it’s way to production, I did a documentary in the mean time. It was like taking a job on top of a job!

It’s completed and finishing up it’s distribution deal now, funny, how it’s easier to place a true story versus a fiction one!

This photo shows Purequosa. Otherwise known as  a stinky gal who swears she is not a germaphobes new best friend!

I received a sample from them to test and it came at the best time ever! I was en route from one NASCAR race in Las Vegas to another in Phoenix and it went from hot to hotter. This colloidal silver spray with essential oils is amazing! I used it on the surface of some places, in the air in others, on my skin and in my mouth for a freshening up!

It’s available on Amazon right now – and if you have kids, pets, relatives, a house, a car, armpits and yuck mouth – you need this! Your spring break will thank you!

Finally, my favorite segment, “What Are You Reading” this week!  I’m re-reading the #BeMore book by Sandi Krakowski.  I love it’s bite sized nuggets of inspiration and wisdom. Get yours on Amazon today! http://amzn.to/2nJjKeh

Okay, now let’s watch t his week’s video!

Hi ya Gorgeous!Thank you for joining me! I know I have mentioned previously that I am missing the daily writing though enjoying the process of working on my feature film and now, when it comes to products to review I am super choosy about who and what I work on.  This week’s products are totally amazois and I know you will love them – especially if you enjoy plant based products!
