Lashes on Lashes on Lashes

Happy Monday beauties! Hope you all had a great weekend. I had family visiting from out of town so I’ve been pretty busy and didn’t get a chance to post yesterday.

I’m sharing my favorite lash glue from House of Lashes along with some of my fave faux lashes I love to use by Ardell and House of Lashes. Check out the details on my Instagram: @beautybyryulala.

Having an excellent lash glue is key to applying false lashes. The HOL glue has a great consistency in the formula and is easy to apply with the thin brush applicator. It dries quickly unlike some other glues out there which helps with keeping the band cleaner when applying to the lash line. The white-clear goes on white but dries clear and I personally like to use this one when I’m not applying eye liner to my makeup look. I use the dark-black which goes on black and dries black when I am applying eye liner with a full face of makeup. I just feel like both glues help make the corresponding makeup look much more polished.

Today was a busy Monday back! Hope you all have a productive and great week!

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!

Monday Essentials

Happy Monday beauties! Hope you had a nice weekend and having a great start to your Monday.

Here are my Monday beauty essentials! I have a busy work day ahead but am woke up pretty tired so just wanted to focus on boosting my face with a good highlighted under-eye to brighten my face. My go-to concealer for that is the MAC PLW concealer and I always use a good powder to set it. Today, I used the Ben Nye Luxury Powder which is an oldie but definite goodie. I have a more yellow-undertone so I love using these two products to help give me that boost and glow. You can’t forget the lips! I always feel so much better with a good concealer and lipstick look. My usual go-to lippies have been the MAC combo pair in Soar and Faux. Such the perfect nudey-pink hues to make me feel pretty.

I hope you all have wonderful Monday and cheers to a great week!

Ciao,

Yuri

Monday Makeup Essentials

I watched Star Wars during the holidays with the boyfriend and LOVED IT! It inspired me to make this quick little video using the @smashboxcosmetics Telephoto 3-in-1 Face Brush. This dual-fiber brush is super convenient when I’m on the go, with the turn of a knob I can easily choose to apply my makeup for sheer, medium or full coverage! Ladies check this product out if you need to pack light! (Sorry my inner nerd is showing with this video ☺️)ps – @sephora sells this brush online for $41.00.
