Lyra was born in Vila Velha, but spent two years living in the town of Divinópolis. She was a model since age 8 and had wanted to be Miss Brasil since age 12. With the encouragement of her father, she soon began to participate in and win some beauty contests. She also landed a few modeling jobs, but at 15, she took a break from acting to work in an export company café, where she remained for four years, to help her family pay for their house.
At 18, she met the state coordinator of Minas Gerais, who invited her to live in Divinópolis and prepared to participate in international beauty contests. She visited various countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belarus, Czech Republic, United States (where she stayed for three months) and Bahamas.
In 2013, Lyra represented Brazil at the world finals of the Miss Multiverse pageant in the Dominican Republic, she won and became the 4th Miss Multiverse winner.
In 2011, she lost her car, money and personal papers during an attack. In an interview with R7.com, days before passing the crown of Miss Brasil 2011 on to her successor, she said that during her year as Miss Brasil, she passed through various problems and had a depression during which she gained 10 kg. But she overcame all of these problems and is losing weight again.
