Style Spotlight: Lux unfiltered with Sivanayla’s Sivan Ayla Richards
She’s our dependable makeup and hair mentor, our point of call during a craving for lush interior design ingenuity, and the conduit through which we live our best LA party girl dreams. With glasses of rosé and lust-worthy outfits on high rotation, it’s easy to see why we’ve joined the growing number of followers tuning into Sivan Ayla Richards of @sivanayla‘s fashion and travel forays.
Today, we’re shining our spotlight on Sivan to see just what it is about her feed that has attracted us (and her 170K legion of followers) to travelling along on her IG journey.
1. She kicks ultimate #hairgoals
You don’t have to scout out an LA-based stylist to achieve Sivan’s look. Swearing by OUAI haircare, this girl douses herself in a maelstrom of mousses and mists to achieve a notoriously tousled mane. We’re obsessed with the salty, flouncy trademark of hair styling that Sivan incorporates into her sartorial snaps.
2. She has the ultimate in Girl Gang goals
Louise Roe’s baby shower. Glamorous LA coffee hangs. Californian cocktail nights with Lily Adel. Ahh, we love Sivan’s vigour when it comes to making the time to being with her girlfriends. It’s always refreshing when a blogger incorporates images and tales of times with those that they love the most in life, instead of maintaining a strictly solo photo affair.
3. Her blog is a donut utopia. Ah, kindred spirits…
Sivan deems herself a ‘dog mum, donut maker and rosé drinker’. Not that into garments? Her donut chronicles are all the more reason to head on over to this foodie’s Insta. Our eyes are indulging in all of the good stuff when we scroll through these delicious food diaries. Guilty (as charged) pleasures are in abundance and we can’t get enough.
4. She’s a helluva beauty connoisseur, with the YouTube tutorials to match
Sivan’s celestial eye makeup and luminous skin have us frantically clicking on every new tutorial she uploads to her Youtube channel. At-home facials, party-proof pouts and skincare heroes are all documented here in a portal of endless #FOTD inspo.
5. Fashion is always fun, but we have a burgeoning soft spot for Sivan’s lifestyle posts
Sivan splices her fashion and beauty bites with healthy doses of lifestyle posts to keep us on our toes. And we love her for it. In pursuit of a Sunday night wind-down, we consulted her recent ‘10 Feel Good Movies’ roundup, and vow to never let a ‘Get the Look’ interior styling post of hers go unread.
