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!

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

Happy Friday beauties! The rain has come down in SoCal today and we definitely need it so I’m happy we get to experience some cold weather. I hope you all are having a great day so far and looking forward to the weekend!

Here are some of the details on my makeup look today. I went with the mood of the weather today so I kept it light with a nude lip. For face, I used the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and I’m finally trying out the white beauty blender today. I thought I’d change it up and use a new one. Do you all see a difference in the different beauty blender sponges? I’m honestly not sure if I do. lol If anything, I feel like the white one would stain a little more than the others since it’s white. I’ll find out after I wash this one this week. Let me know what your thoughts are if you have used the different kinds! I used the BB with my favorite drugstore concealer which is what I use pretty much on the daily. I also used the LCL mascara by Tarte which I have been loving, not to mention this mascara packaging is gorgeous. Blusher by Benefit Dandelion and MAC MSF bronzer to add some color to my face, spritzed the UD setting spray to keep it dewy and voilà. Today’s makeup look id done! Side note, I did go sans-eye shadow today just to keep it light. I just concealed the eyelids to even out the tone and lightly powdered to set it.

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a Fab Friday!

Xo,

Yuri
