Tuesday Essentials

Happy Tuesday dolls! I’m sharing today’s essentials on my IG post: @beautybyryulala.

I just started a new, strict diet M-F so I’m feeling like I need a good cup of caffeine every day. I’ve been keeping my makeup light and natural, which is what I normally do throughout the work week, unless I’m out meeting with clients. I always have my under eye powder to touch up and highlight the areas on my face. I always have at least a lip color to apply and also can’t be without my fave Jo Malone cologne. I love the small sample sizes because they’re so easy to have with me in my purse.

Have a great Tuesday beauties!

Weekend lip duo

Happy weekend beauties!

Out and about today at a work event, trying to stay cool. I kept my makeup lightweight with some MAC Face and Body, no eyeliner just lashes, bronzer, blush and highlighter. For lips, I’ve been obsessed with pairing my MAC lip liner in Soar with the Balm Matt Hughes Liquid Lipstick. I just line and fill in my lips with Soar and apply the liquid lipstick on top of it. It’s a great shade together, soft and pretty, mauve-y nude lip color!

Hope you stay cool beauties! Have a great Saturday.

Xo,

Yuri

Happy hump-day!

Happy hump-day beauties!

As always, I went with a natural and neutral makeup for today’s look. I love my Urban Decay NAKED Basics palette and love taking it with me when I’m on the go because of the convenient size! I guess I stuck with using all travel size friendly products today. lol Here’s what I used: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer as always, on top of my SPF and my Maybelline Fit Me concealer to brighten up my under eyes, LORAC eye primer (I took a break from my MAC paint pot), filled in my brows with the ABH brow powder duo, and the Marc Jacobs mascara. Surprisingly, I have been enjoying the Marc Jacobs mascara. I don’t like to change my mascaras too much because I am very particular with mascaras in general. I’m obsessed with finding the type that does not clump or weigh down my lashes. I have a few favorites that I always use, but I have been using the Marc Jacobs one when I’m on the go and I have to say, it’s pretty good. Lightweight, even after two coats and not clumpy at all. I like the way it applies even in the small size. I’ll have to finish this bottle and see if I decide on purchasing the full size!

Have a great rest of your hump-day dolls!

Ciao,

Yuri

Back to BASICS

Hi dolls!

For today’s makeup look, I took it back to the basics with a neutral/natural look. Check out my post on my IG @beautybyryulala for details!

I had a busy early part of the week with work which consisted of lots of driving and celebrated a birthday dinner for one of my bestie’s in DTLA. I also went back to lightening my hair for Summer from my FAVE hair artist and bestie. I’ll be sharing some photos soon!

I’m prepping for a photoshoot all day tomorrow so be sure to follow me on Snapchat @ryulala for some BTS footage as well as my daily posts!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Sunday morning skincare 

Happy Sunday morning beauties!

It’s quite gloomy today and yesterday, typical off-season weekend in SoCal 🙃 I’m sharing my morning skincare essentials on my IG @beautybyryulala today! I never go without a sunscreen on top of my moisturizer and before applying makeup. I heard SuperGoop has a makeup setting spray that also works as a sunscreen with SPF 50. I’m debating whether to try the 1 oz. bottle just to see how it works. Please let me know if you have tried it! I would love to hear feedback. Another few products I love to use in the morning is a Vitamin C serum and a good eye cream. It’s a great way to wake up your skin with a brightening agent and soothing eye cream to moisturize. Of course can’t leave out one of my fave toning mist. I love spritzing this on after face wash to tone and prep the skin for moisturizers and makeup application. 

Don’t forget to give your skin some TLC over the weekend, morning and nighttime. Drink lots of water to help hydrate, get good sleep, use great products to help reinvigorate your skin and especially help maintain it!

Have a great rest of your weekend, dolls!

Nude Lipstick of the day

Having a coffee break with my Milk Jar cookie while I share today’s nude lipstick of the day: Lorac Alter Ego lipstick in Visionary. I love these lipsticks because they are so pigmented, smooth, hydrating, and yummy smelling.

Happy hump day, dolls!

Sunday necessities

Happy weekend beauties! I’ve been feeling pretty sick this week and spent pretty much the whole day Friday in bed resting. I’m finally feeling better and spending time with family today. I kept my outfit sporty street with a bit of Chanel on my arm. 😉 I love nudey-pink lip shades and went with my Bite beauty lipstick and a matching MAC lip liner.

I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

Ciao,

Yuri

Natural Eyes + Tutorial

Hi dolls! Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday and recharging for the new week ahead!

One of my favorite palettes is the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette. This is one of my go-to palettes that I use on myself as well as clients who prefer a “natural” look. It has a great variety of matte and shimmer shadows that can help you achieve the “romantic natural” look or the “smokey glamorous” look. The perfect eye shadow shades are important, but using the right brushes are key to help you achieve the looks you want. There are several brushes I use for application, but the two I always have in my personal makeup bag are the MAC 217 and 224 brushes. These babies are my “OG” faves since I started playing with makeup and I always re-purchase them from MAC. I do love the Sigma and Morphe brushes of course, but I always seem to come back to these MAC brushes. I have so much history with them as they have helped me become the artist today. After all, blending brushes are probably the most important brushes to have when practicing your craft.

Here is a little step-by-step guide to getting the natural, romantic eye look. Enjoy your Sunday lovelies!

Natural and Romantic:

  1. Apply “Heaven” all over the lid space with a medium sized eyeshadow brush. I usually like to neutralize the eye space with a light shadow color which will help me build up and blend darker shades easily.
  2. Apply “Nudie” in the lower and outer “v” area of the eye lid using a smaller eyeshadow brush, but staying closer to the lower part of the eye. This will be your transition color. Use a blending eyeshadow brush to blend the two shades together.
  3. Apply “Cashmere Bunny” in the crease and “v” area to create depth and dimension to your look. Use a blending brush to smooth out all shades. If you want to “deepen” the crease shade, apply the “Sexpresso” shade into the crease. Blend with a blending brush from the outer to inner part of the eye lid.
  4. Add a little champagne shimmer and apply “Silk Teddy” to the lower, center part of the lid.
