Happy Hump Day beauties!
Yesterday, I had a busy workday plus a photoshoot that lasted into the evening so I didn’t get to post anything up unfortunately! I did have an amazing time shooting with a beautiful model friend and photographer. It was great energy on set and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to share the photos with you!
I had a full face of makeup on yesterday so I went with a lighter look today. I feel as though this is just how my week goes – either a full face of makeup to a lighter lightweight, natural face of makeup. I try to create a good balance. Sorry, it may be boring sometimes! I do try to change up the products at times with what I use.
Here are today’s makeup essentials.
Have a great day dolls!
- Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand
- NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer in Custard
- L’OREAL Paris Voluminous Waterproof mascara
- Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Double Dip
Hi friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and having a great Monday so far. Working away today and prepping for a photoshoot tomorrow. Mondays definitely call for a good cup of coffee or a cappuccino, a good snack (I treated myself to an ice cream cookie) and of course the perfect lip color for the day. Today’s lip color is a beautiful nudey-mauve shade by Lorac in the Alter Lipstick and Lipgloss color Secret Agent. Nothing more than these to brighten up my Monday.
Cheers to a great week, dolls!

Happy Sunday beauties!
Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend and staying cool from the heat.
I love matte products and some of my fave lippie products are from The Balm cosmetics. I picked up some of these beauties from their 50% Flash Sale last month and finally came around to snapping a photo of them. I picked up the matte eyeshadow palette, some more matte liquid lipsticks and of course restocked on my OG Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter. I have been wearing the Committed shade for a month now and am obsessed.
What are some of your fave Balm cosmetics products?
- Meet Matt(e) Trimony matte eyeshadow palette
- Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipsticks (L-R): Doting, Sincere, Committed, Trustworthy, Charming, Dedicated
- Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter

Kept it pretty light and dewy with my fave MAC Face & Body foundation, set it with some translucent powder, then added some lashes and lip color for a completed look. I went to a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday party in LA and wanted to keep the look simple since we were expecting a very hot day in LA. Here are the details.
I hope you all have a great, cool weekend. It’s going to be a hot one in SoCal!
- Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
- MAC Face & Body Foundation in C4
- ABH Brow Definer in Medium Brown
- Julep Maven Length Matters mascara in Jet Black
- Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 20 Sand Sable
Hope you all had a fun Memorial Day weekend!
Headed out to dinner and was in a rush to do makeup; MAC Face & Body foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I pulled out my Benefit Blushing Cheek Party palette to quickly apply bronzer and blush. It literally is a time saver for me so I don’t need to grab and open up different products. I can just switch brushes and dip into the next pan. Haha
All done and headed out! Have a great night beauties!
- Benefit Blushing Cheek Party palette
- Morphe M403 brush
- Poise blush brush
Hi friends! I’m so sorry I’ve been so MIA on here! I have been busy with events for work and traveling for business. I’m just getting back into my beauty posts on social media as well as blogging. I hope you are all doing well and ready for Summer 2016!
I finally restocked on a bunch of my favorite eyebrow products by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I ran out of my Brow Definer and have been trying to finish up my Brow Wiz so I can order all at once. Finally, I ordered some more of my Brow Definer, Brow Wiz, Clear Brow Gel, and the Brow Powder Duo. My current color is Medium Brown for my eyebrows so I get all my colored brow products in this color. I usually take turns in using the different brow products also, the Brow Definer and Brow Wiz when I’m doing a full face of makeup and the Brow Powder Duo when I’m doing a more lighter application and want to just lightly fill in for fuller, natural brow look.
Have a great week and see you again soon!

Happy weekend beauties!
Sharing my makeup essentials for Saturday! Details posted on my Instagram: @beautybyryulala
Rainy and gloomy day in LA and OC today. Hope you’re all staying dry and enjoy your Saturday!
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.
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!
