Happy Hump Day!

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

Happy Weekend!

Hi friends!

Saturday essentials are up on my post on Instagram: @beautybyryulala

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!

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!

Hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday!

Today’s Essentials

Happy Thursday, dolls! I’ve been recovering from a lingering cold with bad allergies and finally feeling so much better! Glad to be back blogging and posting up on my social media again. 🤗

Here are today’s essentials: 

  • Benefit cosmetics Real Cheeky Party Holiday Blush palette 
  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard

As you know, I’m all about convenience when coming to makeup palettes and I love that the Benefit Real Cheeky Party Holiday Party Blush palette came with some of my fave Benefit products. I’m able to use bronzer, blush, highlighter, eyeliner, and mascara from one place – amazing and talk about a time saver! I kept it pretty easy and light with my makeup today (what else is new) with a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation and concealer of course, to brighten up my under eyes and overall complexion. 

I’ve been struggling with the worst allergies this season and therefore leaning more towards a light makeup look since I’ve been reaching for tissue a lot. Nobody likes wiping makeup off their face let alone reapplying. Lol
Have a great rest of the week beauties!
