Marc Jacobs Beauty: déjeuner avec Gilbert Soliz

La semaine dernière j’ai eu l’occasion de déjeuner avec Gilbert Soliz, le make up artiste monde de Marc Jacobs Beauty, un professionel très accesible et sympa. Il a montré à notre petit groupe de blogueuses quelques tips de maquillage avec les produits de la marque new-yorkaise, ainsi que quelques nouveautés de Nöel comme le joli coffret de pinceaux (qui pêut être utilisé en tant que clutch!) et la nouvelle palette de fard à paupières (trop belle, vous allez l’aimer!). Les nouveautés sont disponibles chez Sephora à partir de novembre. Pour commencer, pour celles qui connaissent le fond de teint Re(marc)able, la façon correcte de l’appliquer sur le visage. En suite, un tutoriel sur comment appliquer le Glow Stick enlumineur (gros coup de coeur!), le fard à joues Air Blush (je l’ai en toutes les couleurs!), et finalement, le crayon gel. Curieuses? Regardez les vidéos et bon divertissement! Na semana passada tive a oportunidade de almoçar com Gilbert Soliz, make up artist global da Marc Jacobs Beauty, um profissional extremamente acessível e simpático. Ele mostrou ao nosso …

Dessange Paris: my experience with French Hair Straightening

Those who follow me on social networks already know (especially in my Snapchat @blogdacibele, I’ve showed all there!): almost two months ago, I’ve tested the french hair straightening from Dessange Paris. This treatment has nothing to do with the Japanese or Brazilian thing, it is a deep bath of keratin over the hair, leaving them extremely hydrated and smoothed for three months. And the best, with no ammonia! For those who have dyed hair (my case), this treatment may slightly change the hair color. In my case, I didn’t noticed anything, just a normal  and natural darkening of my color. I waited nearly two months to tell my experience to assess better the result … And I can say that I am extremely pleased: my hair are soft, silky, without frizz and electricity, a wonder! It is as if the hair were cloaked by keratin, which is determined by the flat iron at the end of treatment (so we can not wash or put the hair behind the ear for three days, for not to …

My experience at L’Atelier Blanc by Frédéric Mennetrier

Do you remember that I told you (and made a long mystery after) about the new color of my hair? Well, now I can tell you all! The article I wrote for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil tells everything, and you can read it  now (click here). It is in Portuguese, sorry english speakers! The author of my change is Frédéric Mennetrier from L’Atelier Blanc (the same hairstylist that has transformed Kim Kardashian in blonde, wow!). He is a top colorist, friendly and a very charismatic person. I hope you enjoy the reading! Em Português! Vocês lembram que eu falei para vocês rapidamente (e fiz um longo mistério depois) sobre a nova cor dos meus cabelos? Pois é, agora eu posso contar! A matéria que eu escrevi para a Harper’s Bazaar Brasil conta tudo (clique aqui). Está em português, que bom para nós, lusófonos! O autor da minha mudança é o Frédéric Mennetrier do L’Atelier Blanc (o mesmo que transformou a Kim Kardashian em loira, uau!); Ele é top, um simpático e muito querido. Espero que gostem da leitura!

In Paris? Treatwell offers 15% of reduction on beauty services for you!

I was invited to test a new beauty service in Paris: Treatwell, a booking site that gathers all the salons and beauty centers, spas and hairdressers in Paris, so you can reserve your beauty treatment anyday and anytime you want . It’s like a Beauty Google, let’s say?

I asked for a brighter skin and a special attention to my face open pores. We start with cleaning, make …

Un jour un regard: an eyebrow matter

Since I moved to Paris – seven years ago, jeeze time flies, I just can’t believe it! – I began to do my eyebrows myself. Matter of practicality, lifestyle, and, last but not least, the price, because, let’s face it, Paris is very expensive when it comes to beauty services! And the simple fact that in Brazil is easier to go to the salon and ask for  beauty services: cultural issue or not, there are excelent beauty professionals everywhere, either to do manicure or pedicure, waxing, hairdressind, at very good prices. Paris is not quite, but this is talk for another post! Well, anyway, I was doing my eyebrows all alone until I found a place called Un jour un regard, a sort of specialized center in look, with highlighting eyebrows and eyelashes sessions, permanent makeup, waxing, manicures …. thing that usually is found not in Paris, remember what I’ve said before?… Normally, a hair salon is just that, and nothing else (with exceptions, of course!). Sabrina, the owner of the salon, specialized in look, …

A healthy night in Biotherm’s company

I am proud to say that one of the first creams I started using in my life was from Biotherm. I loved its consistency from the start, the smell and the sea maritime concept won me over early. This week I went to know some of its brand releases and I was blown away by the preoccupation that they have to always offer the best technology and discoveries in cosmetology in its beauty products. The launch of these products and the concept of Biotherm talk are inspired by a modern and connected woman that leads a healthy and fit way of life, so the hashtag of the night was #livemore. So nothing more appropriate than the yoga master Amanda Bisk herself, a super positive woman with a body of goddess! She gave us the pleasure of a free yoga class at the end of the event. What an incredible opportunity! As for the beauty releases, they are those here: BIOTHERM HOMME: – Aquapower  – Oligo Thermal Care – (It hits the stores in August in Brazil) – T-Pur (It …
