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!

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!

Happy Monday beauties! I hope you all had a well rested weekend and a busy Monday today! I woke up to cold weather and rain today, but soaking up the cold before we dive right into the Summer weather which we’re probably expecting the remainder of the week in So Cal. Today definitely went by fast thanks to the DLS yesterday lol

Here are my essentials for today. Went for a basic look today (what else is new): tinted moisturizer, concealer, eyebrows, some highlighter, concealer, bronzer, and some blusher. I love keeping it simple with my makeup! I know, sometimes it can be more boring for some people, but I honestly don’t mind my makeup being clean and simple. I did attend a special event on Saturday and had a full face of makeup on so I try to keep it nice and light during the week if I can. It’s all about how you take care of your skin and balance is key. If I end up wearing more full coverage makeup during the week, I try to “up” my skincare game so I can give it some more TLC on makeup off-days.

Cheers to a great week dolls!

Xo,

Yuri

Tuesday Essentials

Hi friends! Here are today’s essentials.

I’ve been using my  MAC Face and Body pretty regularly so I decided to switch to my  Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer today. The rest are the usual suspects: bronzer, mascara, and a gel eyeliner. Also can’t forget today’s fashion read, this month’s issue of Vogue magazine with Adele slaying on the cover.

Hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday!

XO,

Yuri
