Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

This weekends inspiration comes from an actress of one of my all time favourite shows: Sarah Hyland from Modern Family. The lateral fishtail braid she is wearing here is lovely. I may have a soft spot for braids, as you can see here and here! If like me, you find it difficult to make a nice fishtail braid, you can make a regular one and it will also look fantastic!

sarah-hyland-lateral-braid

Sarah Hyland’s braid is a super-classic and versatile hairstyle, which can be used by women with all shapes of faces. Use a hair ointment throughout the length of the hair and then make a voluminous blow dry, then split the hair into wicks and apply a curling iron – this will make the strands more messy and unobtrusive.Get the whole hair and position it to the side.Trim the threads in two or three and begin to braid them – fasten with a transparent hair band.

Use the curling iron to mark the strands of the fringe – loose, they soften the face. Finish the hairstyle with a good hairspray.

5 little tips to perfect your makeup routine

Taking care of yourself and applying makeup can make all the difference in our daily routines, right?! Sometimes we find difficult to apply a product, having the feeling that it is damaged or needs to be replaced. To prevent this from happening, here are some (good old) techniques that will make all the difference in your makeup!

  • The first step to having a perfect skin is to moisturize it very well. If you do not have a BB cream, use a mixture of sunscreen with liquid foundation on your face. Mix them first at the tips of your fingers and gently rub on the face with the aid of a brush. This tactic can serve as the primer for other products and will avoid the dreaded “face cracking”.
  • If your eye pencil is failing, take the tip and put it facing the hair dryer for a few seconds. Wait until it cools down and apply it again.
  • If your mascara is dry and you feel difficulty in handling it, just pick up a container with warm water and leave the tube submerged for a few moments. Within minutes you can easily apply it.
  • Before applying lipstick on the lips, put on a layer of lip balm, as the hydration facilitates the penetration of the product and yields that lush effect.
  • Do you want to give a matte effect to your lips? Dust a little bit of translucent powder over any creamy lipstick.

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

My hair does not have volume, at all. Then, of course, I am drawn to hairstyles with a lot of it 🙂 !  I think this particular voluminous ponytail can be something I will be able to pull it off, with lots of volumizing hair products and a good curling iron!

Start with a Chelsea blow dry – before, pass a volumizing hair mousse on the length of the hair to ensure the volume and fixation of the waves. Make upward movements with the root to add volume. Then throw some styling powder only at the roots to add more volume.

You can take a few strands on the side of the head and make a braid or a thin twist. You can also choose some interlaced strands and end with a curling iron to give this look of movement.

Nail polish of the week

This week I choose a classic colour: Lost on Lombard by OPI, a  traditional dark red.

OPI-Lost-on-Lombard

It is an oxblood enamel with a creamy finish (very autumnal colour). OPI Lost on Lombard is a feminine, classic tonality that perfectly blends sophistication with seduction.

OPI Lost on Lombard has a very soft lighting effect. This color is a classic, but it never goes out of style! It accompanies you in your work environment or at a friends’ lunch. It is perfect for a formal or laid-back meeting, a family cinema or a romantic get-together.

I think the formula is great, two thin coats were enough to completely cover my nails!

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

I have an engagement dinner this weekend and I think it is a perfect opportunity to try this small lateral twist! It is fun but nice hairstyle for this kind of event and also perfect for the summer! If you have good hair skills (or a good hairdresser) you can make a small lateral braid, it is also very nice.

grazi_insta_baile_da_vogue

The coolest thing about this hairstyle is that girls with curly or wavy hair can use it in a natural way without having to blow dry the hair. The volume and curls they already have naturally are the main characters of this look. To achieve the polished effect of the photo above, make a solution with a gel of high fixation and water, sprinkle it on the roots and fasten it in a ponytail at the nape of the neck. You can also use a strong hold hairspray. If you have a fringe, mix the strands with the rest of the hair. It is fresh and chic!

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

A low ponytail is one of the most versatile hairstyles: it goes from running errands on a Saturday morning to cocktail parties and Sunday picnics. We also saw how versatile it is here and here!

The first step is to brush the hair with the aim of leaving it flat on the top of the head and shape the ends.With a thin cord comb, make a line by splitting the hair in half and then position it behind the ear. Then apply some hair ointment to the palms of the hands, distribute them through the hair strands so that they remain close to the scalp and fasten with an elastic band. Complete the ponytail using a lock of hair to go around the ponytail and make it even more sophisticated.

The Middleton ladies at Wimbledon 2017

The Duchess of Cambridge, her mother Carole Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton were regular attendees of Wimbledon this year. Their Wimbledon style is incredibly chic without being showy, as their usual style is. The classic and elegant looks are very inspiring, not only to watch tennis but also for the summer months. So here are all three ladies looks!

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

img-617368-aprenda-fazer-tranca-lateral-de-marina-ruy-barbosa20140701111404224652

This weekend I am going to try a braid tiara! It is not a hairstyle easy to do at first, but it is worth to give it a try because it looks very pretty and polished!

The hairstyle is ideal for everybody because just by shredding and giving a little volume to the fringe, all types of faces are elongated.

Here is a helpful guide:

To make a braid tiara, start with a blow dry with a smooth finish. Then separate two strands at the height of the ears, make two braids, cross them over the head to form a tiara and fasten with hair pins. To make it even more polished (and like the woman in the picture above), complete the production by dividing the front of the hair in the middle and hanging behind the head – overlapping the braid – to form a hairstyle half-trapped. Finish with hair spray.

9 Tips To Avoid Having Your Suitcase Misplaced During Your Flight

people-sign-traveling-blur

Losing your suitcase is the nightmare of any traveler. If this has happened to you, stay calm, there are ways to keep it from repeating itself. After all, no one deserves to come on vacation and be without a change of clothes! Here are 9 tricks that can help to avoid this situation:

1- Remove all stickers from previous flights

If you find it beautiful to see your suitcase with a bunch of stickers from previous flights, you run a serious risk of not finding yours on the baggage carousel on your next trip. It may end up in the destination of some flight you’ve done in the past. The ideal situation is to put only your personal data on it.

2- Check-in in advance

According to airport officials, the most common cause of lost luggage is the late check-in. The later you do, the more likely it is that the suitcase will not arrive in time for the plane, especially if you are at a large airport.

3- Ask them to put a ‘fragile’ tag on your luggage

This is a well-known trick of Internet users. Let the airline official know that you have fragile things in your bag. They will glue the indicated adhesive and it is more likely that the bag is treated with ‘care’ and do not get lost.

4- The luggage must have bright colors, but it’s good that they do not look very expensive

It is simple: a suitcase that looks expensive may end up in the hands of others and a black suitcase may end up in the hands of many other passengers who have an equal. It is best to choose a flashy color, but that does not look expensive.

5- Calculate connection time well

This one happened to me, right before Christmas!  In general, the bags are lost much less on direct flights. Connected flights are often trickier, especially if the connection is too fast. This makes more likely for the suitcase to not reach the other plane in time.

6- Wear protection or a special cover

Incredibly, it looks like airport baggage protections do work to prevent theft and to protect your suitcase! My sister swears by this.

7- If you have something very valuable in your suitcase, take out insurance

To avoid problems, whenever you have something very valuable in the suitcase it is better to take out insurance.

8- Use the hubs

Hub is a designation given to the airport used by an airline as a point of connection to transfer its passengers to the intended destination. Every company has its hub. According to Forbes, the baggage handling is much better.

9- Use a GPS tracker

If your bag has already been lost or if you worry too much that one day it will get lost, maybe a GPS tracker can help you. This small device is able to determine the coordinates by satellite and transmit the information to the cell phone or to the email of the owner.

Travel safely!
