The proof with the launch of her beauty mark: Magnifaik!

And it must be recognized that if the Franco-Brazilian is best known for her sense of style and elegance, we also admire her beauty. Radiant, fresh, always beautiful … Time seems to have no hold on Cristina Cordula. And while Mother Nature has surely been more than generous with the native of Rio de Janeiro, beauty tips gleaned from her modeling career and the choice of suitable products, are probably no strangers to her always impeccable beauty treatment. Logical, therefore, that the favorite Brazilian of the French wanted to share her beauty tips with us.
1. Her skincare routine
“In the morning, after showering – with Bioderma Athoderm Oil -, I take care of my face and my neck with the “Eau beauté” spray by Caudalie and the serum “The serum” by Augustinus Bader. In winter, I moisturize my skin with “The rich cream” Augustinus Bader and in summer, if I’m in a humid country I only put the serum, otherwise I complete with “The Cream” Augustinus Bader. For the eye contour, “The eye cream” Augustinus bader. I also use Anthelios anti-shine mist by Laroche Posay FP50 in winter, and in summer, to protect my skin from the sun and blue light. It is dry and does not leave the skin pearly. I have a secret: I leave my creams in the fridge because cold, they improve circulation.
In the evening, I remove make-up from my skin with micellar water “Crealine” from Bioderma. Then, in the shower, I wash my face and body with Bioderma “Atoderm” oil. Before going to bed, I apply “The essence” by Augustinus Bader to the face and neck. I also apply a serum but I like to alternate between “The Night Serum”, the “Hyaluronic Serum” and Barbara Sturm’s “Super anti-aging serum”. I finish with a moisturizer, “The cream” or “Rich Cream” Agustinus Bader, depending on the season. The final finishing touch is a spray of Caudalie “Eau de beauté” spray.
And more for the face: I do lymphatic drainage once a week., with “Probiotic skin care oil” or “Phoenix oil” from the Herbivore brand. I vary brands and products very regularly, while keeping the same type of routine for face and body.
Precisely, my body, in the morning, I moisturize it with Lipikar moisturizing milk from La Roche-Posay, in the evening after the shower, with Weleda “Relaxing Oil” with Lavender. And every 15 days, I do a “La Mer” brand exfoliation.
2. Her lip and hand care
“For lips, I’m currently using Jo Malone’s ‘Vitamin E Conditioner’, but I also like Neutrogena’s lip balm. For the hands: Jo Malone’s “Vitamin E Hand Care”. »
3. Her favorite perfume
” I am very loyal to my favorite perfumes. For 10 years now, I have been wearing Jo Malone’s “Basil & Neroli” cologne, to which I add “Orange Blossom” orange blossom, still from Jo Malone. These fragrances take me on a journey…to the Amalfi Coast…they also evoke the freshness of Brazil…these perfumes are part of me! »
4. Her hair ritual
“I have short straight hair which is very easy to maintain. I use shampoos for colored hair, and I vary the brands a lot… at the moment it’s “Hair ritual” by Sisley , but also “Cocomino Glossing Shampoo” by Drunk Elephant or “Color Full Shampoo” by Rahua. I never use conditioner. I wash, I comb and I’m ready! »
5. Her beauty obsession
“I always curl my lashes before applying my mascara! »
6. Her make-up desires
“All the products from my Magnifaïk make-up line!!! To have a perfect complexion Above all, I use my “C’est la base!” from my makeup line. It’s a product that I can use alone but also under foundation, if I do a more sophisticated make-up. It smoothes the skin texture, gives a velvety finish and above all, brings glow! In addition, it is also a treatment thanks to its Brazilian active ingredients: Cupuaçu Butter, which has moisturizing, plumping and anti-aging properties, and Acai Oil, nourishing and antioxidant.
I erase my dark circles with my “dark circle eraser” Magnifaik, which will be released soon. To have a luminous complexion you have to erase your dark circles, otherwise you will look tired. I have very marked dark circles because I am Brazilian and I have dark skin. My eraser is perfect for this because it has an orange color that cancels out dark circles. I then apply my “Au taquet!” concealer. “, my shade is 30BR. If I do a natural make-up, I also use it on the T zone and the chin. FYI, “On the job! » contains Cocoa Butter, antioxidant, moisturizer and protects the skin against the effects of blue light from screens; and Acerola Extract which has an anti-oxidant and moisturizing effect.
My favorite mascara at the moment is “Lash freak” from Urban Decay”, and my lipstick, Glow Play lip balm “Floral Coral” from Mac Cosmetics. »
7. Her good-looking secret
“To look good, I use my bronzer/highlighter duo “We want light! “. In winter I use the “Paris” shade, and in the summer I use the “Rio” shade. All the products in my Magnifaik make-up line are clean and provide care because they all contain Brazilian active ingredients that are good for the skin. I have a golden rule: if my eyes are more worked, I make a natural mouth and vice versa. »
8. Her shaped tips
“Whatever happens and whatever my schedule, I practice yoga twice a week and I also do cardio twice a week minimum. »
9. His diet
“It’s a bit cliché but I swear it’s true: I like vegetables and fish, and light things, such as salads and raw vegetables. But I assure you, I also have a cute sin: chocolate! »
10. Her anti-stress trick
“Going on vacation to Rio!” Travel… but since it is not always possible… I do meditation and breathing. If you allow me, I have a rant: I don’t like make-up that is too marked, too much contouring, with a lot of material, highlight everywhere without any nuance, with too much of everything… it distorts the beauty of the woman. I prefer a more natural woman! »
