Light and simple #motd

Hi beauties, hope you all had a productive Monday today!

I’m sharing my simple and light makeup look today on my Instagram: @beautybyryulala

I used my oldie but goodie and my favorite CC cushion compacts by Amore Pacific, filled in my brows, applied mascara, and added a pop of bright lip color using a moisturizing lip tinted crayon.

Had a really busy day and glad the first day of the week is over. Cheers to a great week!

Sunday night mask treatment

Hello beauties! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I wanted to share a great mask treatment I’ve been using and have been absolutely loving! The Glamglow Youthmud mask treatment is a great mask I like to use when I feel like I need to detox. Glamglow has amazing masks and I have yet to try all of them, but I am a big lover of clay masks. As an Esthetician, I learned so much about different skincare treatments and especially loved the different types of treatments that came in mask forms. I love the fact that there are so many great natural ingredients that benefit the skin. I love clay masks because they target drawing out impurities from your skin so I usually like to call it my detox treatment.

This particular Glamglow mask treatment has three main ingredients: 1.volcanic pumice rock which acts as the exfoliant, 2. french sea clay which helps absorbs impurities, 3. teaoxi green tea leaf which has antioxidants that help boost the skin with a great glow. I like to apply this lightly over my face with my face brush that I use just for skincare masks and then wash off after about 15 minutes. My face feels amazingly soft afterwards, which is a fabulous feeling! Talk about giving yourself a facial at home! This has become one of my favorite masks for sure. I would highly recommend this product if you haven’t tried it yet, but please be cautious if you have very sensitive skin.

Blusher of the day

Happy weekend beauties!

I have been obsessed with a new blusher I finally opened up to try out. I think I have the most difficulty opening up and trying different products before finishing up the first product. I have been using my Benefit blushers in Dandelion, Coralista and also my Nars blusher in Orgasm forever. I’ve finally hit pan in all of these and then finally opened up my Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blusher even though I’ve had this sitting in my makeup organizer forever.

This blusher has definitely become one of my faves. The product comes with two shades, an outer and inner shade in the compact. The application is super easy and blends perfectly to give the best cheek color that’s natural and glowy. I will definitely be picking up the rest of the cheek to chic blushers! 

🌙Nighttime Skincare Essentials

Hi dolls!

I’m sharing my nighttime skincare products on my Instagram tonight: @beautybyryulala

I absolutely love these brands and they are definitely some of my favorite products, especially since they are all natural, gentle ingredients. It doesn’t get any better than that for your skin!

I have been loving the Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser because of how gentle it is and helps me maintain clear skin, but I especially like using it “Flo” comes into town (my time of the month) 🙃 and my skin needs a little tlc. Some months my skin feels more oilier than other months so this is a great cleanser I use during that time. 👌🏼

The Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré are my oldies but goodies and my go-to faves! I love spritzing the beauty elixir before makeup for a nice priming base and even just as a toner before moisturizer. We all know the Embryolisse moisturizer is my cult fave and I use it on the daily, all seasons, all year long.

Sweet dreams beauties!

Dewy, Natural, & Fresh-faced MOTD

Happy hump day beauties!

Even though the weather seems to be a bit cloudy today, I was feeling for a dewy, clean fresh faced look. I like to spritz on a makeup setting spray before applying my foundation to keep the dewiness look on my face. Today, I used the Skindinavia makeup setting spray and applied the MAC Face & Body foundation (I am almost running out of this bottle) and used a duo-fiber brush to lightly help apply the liquid foundation all over my face. I used my go-to concealer by Maybelline Fit Me (I use this concealer and switch between this one and the NARS concealer) and applied it under my eyes, forehead, little it on the bridge of my nose, around my nostrils, and around my lips to conceal any uneven skin tones and brighten up those areas. I set these areas very lightly using the Laura Mercier TL powder just so there is no creasing and then warmed up my face a little with some bronzer using my MAC MSF powder in Dark Golden. Next, I used my favorite mascara by L’oreal Paris Voluminous in Carbon Black and also the Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara for my bottom lashes. Then I finished off the look with my favorite Demi Wispies by Ardell lashes and voila~ finished look.

I hope you all liked my step-by-step fresh face look today. It is very simple and I did not do anything other than bronze my face to add some warmth and depth. I will usually go with this look to keep it looking dewy and fresh and “natural” with some big eyes, with the help of my wispies lashes. I always get compliments asking whether I have lash extensions when I wear these and that they look very natural. Obsessed!

Have a great rest of the week dolls!

Wednesday #MOTD

Happy hump day beauties!

Having a full day of meetings and going to a dinner right after so I went with a medium coverage makeup look to keep my skin still lightweight, using MAC Face and Body foundation. I used neutral eyeshadow shades using the TooFaced Chocolate Bar palette and my daily blusher by Benefit. I’m obsessed with Anastasia Beverly Hills products of course and excited to be using more highlighters for the upcoming warm seasons. I’m in love with the That Glow glow kit!

Tuesday eye look #EOTD

Hello dolls!

For today’s eye makeup look, I’m using one of my favorite Too Faced palettes with my go-to eyeshadow primer by MAC cosmetics.

Check out my Instagram post today to see the product details for today’s eye makeup look! @beautybyryulala

♦ PRO Tip: Choose a good, lasting eyeshadow primer that helps cancels out discoloration and neutralizes the lid to prepare for eyeshadow application. Don’t forget to set the lid with a translucent powder or skin tone eyeshadow to ensure no creasing!

Monday essentials

Hello friends!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and having a great Monday so far.

I’m dealing with some allergies and dry skin so for today’s makeup, I reached for my favorite hydrating serum that acts as a primer also. It’s the Hourglass No. 28 and it is amazing. A little definitely goes a long way for me, unless you are feeling extremely dry all over your face. I like to pump just a little bit onto my hands and pat it in my skin where it needs the care. I do this before/after my moisturizer depending on our dry I feel and then apply my foundation on top. The serum is formulated with a blend of 28 oils and completely vegan, paraben and sulfate free. It smells divine! I kept it pretty simple with foundation and made sure I set everything with my Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

Who says you can’t treat dryness and still wear a full face of makeup? Remember, you can always build up your makeup look as well as keep it light coverage. Find a good foundation that your skin likes where you can do both. One of the reasons I love the GA Luminous Silk foundation is because it truly is lightweight and easy to wear as well as buildable to full coverage.

Have a great rest of your Monday and cheers to a great week!
