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!

XO,

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.
