Extra tip: use aluminium or plastic hangers, that are lighter. Heavy hangers used with heavy clothes might not be a good idea for the leather straps, that can not support and crush. Take care!

If you keep noticing about fashion calendars, you probably know that international catwalks are running on fire. From here, we "normal people" feel happy to keep an eye on international blogs and websites to get a sneak pick of the trendies, specially, in the street styles. 

Take a look at the top 5, below, with the main trendy pieces that are being used in NYFW to get inspired for your own outfits!

1- MILITARY GREEN

It has been forgotten some seasons ago but now the military green is hardly back, for middle-season outfits. You can use it all over your look, as a monochromatic propose, or choose some items such as accessories or shoes. It is a great option for you to alternate between the most common and favorite "black and white".

2- WHITE BOOTIES

That's what you just read. After the white shoe became trendy some time ago, it's boots turn to appear in this color. You might think it is strange, at first sight, but trust me: in terms of fashion, we never say 'never'. 

3- BLUSH COLORS AND MUSTARD

The 'blush tones', as people use to say, are those who are exactly like the make up colors - light rosés, soft oranges and reds, etc. Besides those colors, the mustard are another one that promises to be the favorite one in your outfit - I think it fits wonderfully in dark skins!

4- STATEMENT SHIRTS

After necklaces and earrings, it's time for the statement shirts. You can choose a color or a texture that makes you highlighted in the middle of the crowd or even a completion. The secret is to invest in the unused. 

5- A PINCH OF RED

While we have the Serenity and Quartz tones as it colors for 2016, it seems the red are going to take place for the 2017's trends. The tip is to invest in some pieces that brings a pop mood to your outfit - which means you don't need to dress all in red if don't want to.

false eyelashes | eyelashes | beauty tips | beauty | make up | eyelashes longer | tips to get pretty eyelashes
A pretty and well done make up asks for well defined and remarkable eyelashes, a point that is almost a global preference for women. Those who don't have longer eyelashes naturally can opt for false ones.
 
The variety of false eyelashes is big: you can choose for longer ones, thinner ones, stronger ones, more curly... Fernando Torquatto, a Brazilian make up artist gives us some tips of how you can apply false eyelashes correctly. Take a look!

  • WHEN YOU'RE APPLYING 
1- After measuring the size of the eyelashes, before you stick it, cut off the bristles that passes beyond your eyelid;
2- Apply a little bit of the glue stick in your hand and with the help of a nipper, apply the stick all over the base of your false eyelashes. Most part of the stick must be applied on the extremities of it;
3- Close your eyes and start pasting the lashes in the middle of your eyelid and then in the extremities. Try not to stick it in your natural lashes;
4- The last part your will stick is the internal extremity. The faster you do it, the better it fixes. Use a nipper to support you and guarantee the best fixation; 
5- To achieve a more beautiful effect, use an eyelash curler - use it nicely in order not to unglue your false lashes;
6- To hide any stick dregs of your lid, use an eye liner in the superior lid, to fill the base of your lashes;
7- Finally, apply two layers of black mascara to get your lashes longer and with more volume, if you want. The mascara also helps the fixation and get your eyes prettier.

  • WHEN YOU'RE REMOVING

When you're removing your false eyelashes, start from the external side of your lid. The stick also needs to be removed from the base, do it holding from the central bristles. To remove excess of the mascara, hold the nylon base and, nicely, with the help of a cotton ball, remove the product by supporting in a appropriate surface, like a table or a tier. Then, accommodate your false eyelashes in their box, after removing all the make up from them, and they're ready to be reused again! 

  • TO GET YOUR NATURAL EYELASHES MORE BEAUTIFUL 
1- Buy a nice quality mascara;
2- Make use of the eyelash curler;
3- When you're applying the mascara, apply the first layer of the product next to the base of your lashes, in the middle of your eyes. Drop the most part of the product in this place, with the mascara brush, then push it until the beginning of the lashes; 
4- Repeat the process. If yu're using a volume mascara, two layers are enough to get a nice result; 
5- Do not forget to remove the make up before you sleep, specially the mascara, in order to maintain your natural eyelashes healthy.

Spring/summer 2017: fashion and beauty’s checklist

, September 14, 2016


fashion | beauty | spring summer 2017 | fashion tips | fashion days | summer dresses

Like it or not, summer is comming in Brazil (and out of here, it is still going on). It's always a good idea to think about what we need to face the most hot temperatures, in terms of fashion and beauty, in order to optimize our closet and nécessaire. 

I know we're living in hard times in terms of money, so we have to look forward saving it, however, here is my checklist with things I already have and I indicate and somethings I would like to buy, if I can afford it.

  • FASHION

fashion | beauty | spring summer 2017 | fashion tips | fashion days | summer dresses

1- Patches are trendy since winter, but I've never got any of it, so I'll save some money to buy and use it on Summer. After all, denim is a texture use can make use of all over the year, even on summer.

2- Mirrored sunglasses might divide opinions: there are those who love it, and those who hate it. I am in the first group, and I believe they are everything to do with the hot season. I've already have ones and I'm sure they'll make part of my outfits. 

3- Lots of bracelets! Nothing is better to improve our summer outfit than accessories, once we are forced, by the hight temperatures, to dress less clothes. 

4- Light colors are trendy for 2016 and might stay trendy for 2017, even on Summer. If you are not so fan of neon tones, try the lighter ones - they are fashion and trendy even on swimsuits. I am really considering to try one.

5- It looks like a swimsuit but is a dressing piece (here in Brazil we call it 'body'). It is versatile, simple and valorizes female silhouette a lot. 

  • BEAUTY

fashion | beauty | spring summer 2017 | beauty tips | beauty fair | summer beauty produtcs

1- Lip balms are the black dress of our nécessaires: we must have one all over the year. This one I'm currently using is from Maybelline, but any one that has Sun protection and hydrating factor is welcome. 

2- CC Cream is another great beauty product for we to have. In this moment I am using one from Boujoirs I've bought in London but when it finishes I'll probably try this other one from Make B., that is composed by anti-aging and anti-oxidant factors and many other benefits. 

3- This week I've bought and tested this Bepantol hair spray and what a miracle product! My hair became stronger, shiner and has stopped dropping. This is how you use it: sprinkle a little bit of Bepantol in your hair, after shower, when it is still wet. Then wait it to dry or dry your hair yourself.

4- Another miracle product is this wax for nails and cuticles, which I've talked about on my Snapchat and Instastories. I don't know if it sells forward - but maybe there are another brands that fabricates this kind of thing - but it is great to getting your nails harder and stop growing cuticles. Since I've started to get my nails done my myself, I'm using it and loving it!

5- I love lipsticks, specially the dark ones. But lately I've been adopting the theory of "less is more", so the lighter ones are calling my attention. This is a variation of the Snob, from MAC, and a color of lipstick I don't have, so I'm looking forward to buy one.

Three types of shoes that are trendy for the next seasons

September 12, 2016


fashion | fashion tips | trends | 2016 trends | 2017 trends | shoes | sneakers | slides | flat sandals | oxfords | brogues | trendy shoes for 2016

I don't know about you, but to me, comfort is my first word when I am choosing an outfit lately - more than style, most of times. If we can conciliate both it is great, of course. If you agree with me, probably you also think that comfort must start from our foots!

For those who go to many events, like me, walk a lot in work time and don't like to feel uncomfortable, here is my personal list with three types of shoes that are very trendy from now until the next seasons, for you to invest.

1- SNEAKERS

fashion | fashion tips | trends | 2016 trends | 2017 trends | shoes | sneakers | slides | flat sandals | oxfords | brogues | trendy shoes for 2016

It's not new that sneakers won fashion connotation some seasons ago. There are so many models with many prints and textures that you can use to many occasions, in so many different outfits. I've adopted this new style of dressing and, to me, it is indispensable.

2- OXFORDS/BROGUES

fashion | fashion tips | trends | 2016 trends | 2017 trends | shoes | sneakers | slides | flat sandals | oxfords | brogues | trendy shoes for 2016

Shoes full of history, the oxfords and brogues came from the male closet directly for our shoes, winning big updating  such as platform, for example. You can try to find a pair in jumble sales or still getting your husband/boyfriend's pair if you both wear the same size.

3- SANDÁLIAS FLAT/SLIDES

fashion | fashion tips | trends | 2016 trends | 2017 trends | shoes | sneakers | slides | flat sandals | oxfords | brogues | trendy shoes for 2016

There is no deny: Brazil and some other countries with tropical weather takes us to use more fresh and aired shoes. Besides I am an incurable boot lover, I have to admit that those kind of shoes must have some space in my closet. Don't trick yourself: they are updated, fresh and modern - and appear in so many different colors, textures and types for you to love and improve your summer outfit. Also, they are adaptable for many occasions.

So which one of those shoes please your eyes the most? Do not forget that if you can't afford a new pair (besides the will of buying a new one is SO big), try to find it in bazaars, jumble markets or even get that pair you've forgotten deep in your closet, from other seasons, and reform it, in order to reuse right now.
