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!

Minimal Makeup Monday

Hello beauties!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and also a fun Father’s Day for those of you who celebrated. It was an extremely hot weekend in SoCal and today was even hotter. The heat wave in Southern California is just beginning and just in time for the first day of Summer. I have to admit I am a little afraid of this heat this season. I am NOT ready lol.

Today was a whopping 108° and I definitely did not put on a full face of makeup. I did opt for my fave CC Compact by Amore Pacific which has an SPF of 50+ so definitely prepared for sun protection and skin protection. I went with a very minimal makeup look today so just applied some light concealer under my eyes to brighten (I do this daily on light to full coverage makeup days), used a tinted brow gel for a filled in look, and then lastly, some mascara to open up my eyes. I kept it light and dewy and just that for today’s hot hot weather. I didn’t drink any hot coffee today at all because of the heat so I made a yummy iced coffee instead.

Hope you all had a productive Monday so far and stay hydrated as this season officially kicks off today. Happy Summer beauties!

Xo,

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!

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!
