GALLERY>> THE TOP 10 BRAZILIAN BEAUTY BUYS

1. Beauty’in Beauty Drink, £3.50 each

No matter how many lotions and potions we put on our face, a healthy glowing complexion comes from within. Cue Beauty’in, who are launching a limited edition [a target="_blank" href="http://www.harveynichols.com/1735050-b-renewed-beauty-drink-cucumber-lemon-and-aloe-vera-340ml/%20">World Cup beauty drink[/a], available to buy at the matches. For those who aren’t jetting off to the games but are still in need of a beauty fix, Selfridges are launching a pop up shop in their food hall for two weeks, starting this weekend, with promotional offers on the green and yellow flavours.

2. Molton Brown Caju & Lime Collection, from £18

If you’re looking for some new products to give you an energizing burst in the mornings, we recommend the [a target="_blank" href="http://www.moltonbrown.co.uk/store/the-caju-lime-collection/catUKHCCajuLime/%20">Molton Brown Caju & Lime[/a] bath and body collection. The Caju fruit is native to Brazil and is in fact the producer of delicious cashew nuts (definitely worth googling an image of this one). High in Vitamin C, with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, your skin will feel healthy and refreshed.

3. Clarins Colours of Brazil Collection, from £18

It’s difficult to decide what we like most about this summer collection from [a target="_blank" href="http://www.clarins.co.uk/make-up-collection-summer-look.html%20">Clarins[/a]. With a wide variety of shades and textures condensed into a few core products; the Colours of Brazil collection captures the essence of this exotic country. The Lip Balm Crayons are a summer beach essential, whilst the electric blue shadow from the palette is a great way to make your eyes pop, particularly when teamed with a golden tan.

4. L’Occitane Vitória-Régia, from £60

If you’re looking for a summer scent [a target="_blank" href="http://uk.loccitane.com/vitória-régia-day-night-fragrance-duo,83,1,59152,568620.htm%20">L’Occitane[/a] has launched two new summer fragrances with an exotic twist. The Vitória-Régia day and night fragrances are inspired by the phases of the “star of the Amazons”, otherwise known as the water lily. The fresh Day Flower fragrance is elegant and light, whilst the Night Flower is enhanced with peony for a more mysterious, evening scent.

5. Sol de Janeiro, from £17

Whilst we’re caught in a cycle of endless downpours and gloom, Brazil is a source of constant warmth and sunlight. Their winter temperatures range from 13 to 18 degrees, more or less the same temperatures us Brits associate with bare legs and sunglasses. As a result of their year-round sunshine, it’s essential the Brazilians take sun care seriously, which is why we know we can rely on their products. The [a target="_blank" href="http://www.nivenandjoshua.com/brands/sol-de-janeiro/%20">Sol de Janiero products[/a] keep you covered from head to toe using a limited amount of silicones, mineral oils and paraben preservatives. If that’s not enough to lure you in, take one whiff of the delicious Brazilian ingredients and you’ll be hooked.

6. Hersheson’s Brazilian Package, £52

We love a good distraction when it comes to waxing and the [a target="_blank" href="http://www.danielhersheson.com/">Daniel Hersheson salon at Harvey Nichols[/a] has just the solution – alcohol. For a limited time only starting 12th June, they’re offering a pain-numbing Caipirinha cocktail to knock back during your treatment, served by the 5th floor mixologists. The more games we win the longer the offer stands so here’s to hoping we can get our hands on that gold cup!

7. Nicky Clarke Mayfair, £POA

If you’re someone who struggles with frizz and unruly hair, the summer months can be somewhat daunting, just the mention of the word ‘humidity’ might make you shiver. The Brazilian blow-dry has remained popular for quite some time now, using Keratin to penetrate the hair, repair damage and smooth out any frizz. Hairdressing royalty Nicky Clarke is offering Grazia Daily readers 25% off [a target="_blank" href="http://www.nickyclarke.com/salons/brazilian-blow-dry">Brazilian blow-dry treatments[/a] at his Mayfair salon, starting from today until the end of the World Cup.

8. OPI Brazil Collection, £11.95 each

If you’re stuck in bit of a nail rut, using the same old colours time and time again, the new [a target="_blank" href="http://www.beautybay.com/opi/OPI/_/N-1z04kk4Z1z140es?gclid=CO6tiKvl3b4CFQQOwwodcJ8A2g&kword=opi+nails&match=e&mkwid=sRNWp1U7V_dc&pcrid=41849040443&plid=%20">Brazil collection from OPI [/a]is a chance to experiment.  With shades ranging from summer brights to darker, seductive taupes and aubergines, there’s something for everyone. All polishes come complete with quirky, Brazilian themed names (we’ve got our eye on I Just Can’t Cope-acabana).

9. Garnier Ultimate Blends Silky Smoother 1 Minute Polishing Scrub, £4.49

Made with Brazilian papaya, the [a target="_blank" href="http://www.boots.com/en/Garnier-Ultimate-Blends-The-Silky-Smoother-1-Minute-Polishing-Scrub_1422096/%20">Silky Smoother range[/a] from Garnier’s Ultimate Blends is made for mid-long hair, with split ends and in need of some TLC. The hero product, their 1 Minute Polishing Scrub, is a quick fix treatment to be used a couple times a week in place of the conditioner. The creamy formula smells heavenly and leaves hair feeling silky with soft, smoothed ends.

10. St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil, £25

If you’re beginning to dread your morning commute – not because of the cramped tubes but as a result of Gisele’s latest H&M campaign, you’re not alone. The endless images plastered up the escalator with her long, shimmering, tanned limbs on show are really quite disheartening, especially before 10am. However, Grazia beauty has discovered a way to emulate this Brazilian beauty. The Brazilian inspired, newest edition to the [a target="_blank" href="http://www.st-tropez.com/en-gb/luxe-dry-oil/">St. Tropez line[/a] provides a streak-free golden sheen that leaves skin nourished and glowing for up to seven days. It’s time to awaken your inner goddess!

With the World Cup kicking off in sunny Brazil, we thought we would pay tribute to the country that’s provided us with many of our favourite things - delicious coffee, deadly Caipirinhas, cute bikini bottoms and countless supermodels. Whilst good genes play a large part when it comes to Brazilian women, they also take beauty, health and fitness very seriously (otherwise they wouldn’t be able to wear those bikini bottoms).

If you’re not too football savvy and are looking for an alternative way to celebrate the World Cup, Grazia Beauty have put together some slightly more feminine ways to celebrate. Click through our gallery above for some Brazilian beauty inspiration…
