Happy Leap Day! Oscar recap of Malin Akerman's look with Burt's Bees makeup artist Kathleen Jeung

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Happy Monday and double happy to this amazing Leap Day. I find it funny that there is a leap day, but so it goes I guess on the Gregorian calendar.

In the Hebraic calendar the Leap Day is actually a Leap month. Meaning two months of Adar instead of one. That my friends is a good thing.

So now that we have celebrated a wee bit for the Leap Day, let's take a quick look at an Oscar red carpet look from last night.

I did not watch. I was traveling and by time I got to the hotel, I would rather watch The Walking Dead, and it was worth it!

3 new lip products to take you from the Oscars red carpet to the prom or spring break vacation

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Sunday. This day is many things.
1. The Walking Dead is on tonight and I can hardly wait to find out what happens.
2. I'm en route to Vegas for my flight to Atlanta. Have I ever mentioned I'm not exactly fond of flying?
3. The Oscars are on tonight.

So with all of that said, let's talk about how March is packed with so many events and activities and stuff!

 Like prom, spring break, Easter and a whole lot more.

So for all my Beauties getting ready to take a trip or attend a big event, if you want to have a fresh lip look while respecting the budget, then consider these 3 different types of lippies from essence cosmetics!

A lip gloss, a highly pigmented liquid lipstick and of course, a good ol' fashion hydrating lipstick.

You can find essence cosmetics at Target and these are in the $5 range. Not too shabby for a fresh look for your vacation, prom, Easter brunch or just a need to scratch your makeup itch!

How to get Oscar red carpet ready with a DIY Avocado Fenugreek Hair Mask Tutorial

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Who's watching the Oscars this year? Not me. There was too much brou ha ha about it and I think that now there is a kids soccer match mentality about it. Everybody gets a trophy for participating. So if you were an background actor on the set for one day, here's your Oscar.

So I will be watching The Walking Dead instead. Things are heating up with Rick and Michon. How can I not watch?

For those who are going to the Oscars or doing an Oscars party, you are going to need to have amazing hair. I personally, am doing an at home DIY hair mask of raw egg, coconut oil and honey. Anything to heal my low thyroidism crunch cotton candy like hair!

For those who would like an at home spa diy hair mask to heal hair, get ready for the red carpet or nourish before a sunny spring break trip, try this!

How to navigate the award season red carpet with Murad

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday!
Are you ready for the GRAMMY's tonight? Do you have a favorite to win? I think the fashion and style is more my favorite than a certain performer. I plan to watch some of the show and spend the rest of the time on Twitter enjoying the savoir faire of tweets.

This year's pre-telecast ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. PST. It will be streamed live on and 
The main event, which takes place across the way at Staples Center, will air on CBS from 5 to 8:30 p.m. PST.

Now the road to the awards shows can be tricky to navigate for the celebrities who have to look in-human perfect for the 4K cameras and public. I know one sure fire way to look camera ready, all the time, everyday! That's with Murad skincare.

Murad Skincare can help you navigate the road to the awards shows from start to finish-remember, Oscars are coming up on February 28th.
Use this system of products to get yourself red carpet ready:

Murad Hydro Dynamic Creme
Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence
Hydrating toner

Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips by Murad
Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield with spf 30

What to do for thinning and shedding hair on your Valentine's Day-or TWD day

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy The Walking Dead is back on day!  

Or in other news...Happy Valentine's Day.

Jesus is my Valentine. Enough said.

And...moving on to other news, such as the effort to curb the massive shedding brought on by freak Hashimoto's disease thyroid revolt, I'm trying this shampoo and conditioner from Thicker Fuller Hair

I said in February that I would wash my hair once a week in an effort to curb shedding. Though these warm days with no wind has me running! I love it!
Oh no! Now I'm a big sweaty mess and sweaty stinky hair is not in my list of favorite things. So I may have to increase my washing though when I do, I will be using this.

I'm taking a before picture today and then will take another at the end of the month and update this post with my use of the Thicker Fuller Hair shampoo and conditioner.
It's available at, and in mass drugstores and retailers now.

I'm also one week into using my Hair Anew vitamin supplement.

Here's some details from the brand:

Congratulations Broncos & PUR Minerals on the Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara!

Happy Monday!
So, how about those Broncos? I really thought the Panthers were going to win. I had a lot of opinion about the game and the Super Bowl Pepsi Half Time show, that whole conversation is on the Facebook page.

Today is a new day, so no need to rehash any old conversations.

Congratulations to the Denver Broncos. Now, let's move on!

TEEN WEEK is coming up starting next Monday! Stay tuned and please tune in! This is one of my most favorite promotions that Makeup University does!

Next, here is a link to the updated Valentine's Day collab look video with Victoria of Victorious Hair!
Enjoy it and please beauty community, rally around Victoria and subscribe/like/comment to her channel! Supporting one another is so important!

Next, let's talk product... I met the new PUR Minerals mascara while in Los Angeles at the Saturday GenBeauty event. I am a huge mascara fanatic! This mascara lives up to every promise and then some!

Opposites attract with this anti-aging mascara that has a magnetic polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.
PÜR does NOT test its products on animals.

Begin by placing the brush wand at the base of lashes then hold for a few seconds to set. Wiggle the wand in a back and forth motion and repeat to build. Use the wand vertically to apply to the lower lash line.

Features & Benefits
  • Opposing charges attract mascara to lashes with maximum volume without clumping.
P.S. I really think that the instructions to hold the wand at the base of the lashes for a few seconds is the magic that makes these lashes big and bold looking. 
I love love love this mascara. Wore it all day. In severe wind. A lil bit o crying at a puppy commercial. No smudging! No flaking! Removed with eye makeup remover and face wash.
If you love mascara, like I love mascara, then this is a mascara for you! Available at Ulta for $22 or on the Pur Minerals website.

Superbowl Sunday: the recap, review and intro video for you

Hi ya Gorgeous,
So today is Superbowl Sunday. For those who watch football, it's a big deal. For those of us who like the commercials and the half time show, it's an ok deal. Nowadays with everything being on Youtube, there isn't a huge need to watch the game in my opinion.

So, instead of having a "football look" or "Superbowl style" video or post, I've got a wee chit chat to do a light review, a simple recap and introduce you to the big deal for the blog coming up next week.


I've been writing Makeup University for ten years now. Ten. Years. One of my favorite things about the blog that started the second year of it's inception is the focus on encouraging young women at the beginning of the year. Somehow, the beginning of the year became the second month and that's ok by me because I feel like blending a celebration of young women in the month that we celebrate love AND Arizona's birthday is a good fit.

Please enjoy the video and comment your opinion. If you have not subscribed to the Makeup University YouTube channel yet, please do!

How to refresh and spa your skin while traveling in winter weather with Beauteque

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Saturday to you!
So when would now be a good time to take some "me" time and have an at home spa day?

It's the second month of the Gregorian calendar year and if you have not committed to taking better care of yourself this year, then when would NOW be a good time to do so?

Enter, Korean skincare masks from Beautique

 I recieved some samples and have been loving them! I want to use one a week, but, have used 3 so far!

 These two in the photo above I am saving for my next trip.

 I used this and it's by far my favorite! I swear, my skin absorbed all of the good stuff packed into the mask leaving the paper dry. My face was hydrated, glowing and moisturized.

 I used the lemon "I'm Real|" brightening mask and enjoyed it and the solution on the mask was rapidly absorbed by my skin. Was I bright? I don't know. Could have been the late night or the wine, either way, I really enjoyed the fresh scent, smooth application and rapid absorption of the mask.

 And...I'm wearing the aloe vera mask now. I love aloe vera for it's healing and nurturing properties.

So. These Beauteque masks are amazing, affordable and easy to access. Why not try some today?

P.S. These are perfect gifts for sisters and mothers, men who like skincare and others on Valentine's get some and give some!

Generation Beauty 2016 review

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Today is a sideways "throwback Thursday".
First, I have a fresh review of my recent trip to Los Angeles for Generation Beauty by Ipsy. In the spirit of all things #tbt, here are some photos from the 2015 Generation Beauty event I attended.

 This is the Beauty Content Creator gift bag from the invite only reception the night before the event.

 Oh last time, it was so much fun to go to the party and meet so many fellow beauty bloggers and YouTube beauty gurus.

 But of course, there was the usual cluster mug of "Line Closed" and crowd management issues.

So, now-let's take a look at this year's review.

And second, I'll have some commentary.  Cheers to you having an awesome and amazing day!

How to help dry winter hair at home spa with eva-nyc thermal hair wrap

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Groundhog Day! I most likely will watch the movie today in honor of Punxatawney Phil! Since it snowed in Arizona yesterday, I'm pretty sure that there is going to be more winter!

So winter weather brings extreme dryness because of the use of the central air heater!
I'm using the eva-nyc thermal hair wrap to help my dry, crunchy hair! 
For someone who travels a lot, this is a perfect and TSA friendly way to pack a deep hair conditioning treatment!

Self-heating, deep-conditioning spa treatment. 
Innovative in concept and design, the Eva NYC Skip the Spa Thermal Hair Wrap is saturated with 38 active plant oils and extracts, amino acids, antioxidants and royal jelly for unparalleled moisture, nutrition and repair. Self-heating upon application, revolutionary thermal technology opens the hair cuticle, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deep into hair’s cortex for ultimate nourishment and dramatic repair.
Utilizing 3 different patents; in antioxidant formulation, in moisture loss reduction through phyto-oligio and in a specialized scalp calming complex, this power-packed mask delivers multiple benefits.
  • Immediate improvement in damaged hair
  • 7 days of shiny, glowing hair
  • 9 days of hydrated hair

Directions:  Remove the thermal hair wrap and apply over freshly washed, towel-dried hair. Secure snugly but comfortably with the fastening sticker and gently massage, ensuring hair is enveloped in the wrap’s repairing and restoring ingredients. Process for 10-20 minutes and rinse with warm water. The Skip the Spa Thermal Hair Wrap is recommended once a week for very dry and damaged hair, and once every two weeks for normal to dry hair types. Use immediately after opening.
