The Art...

Hiiiiiiiiii All

A while I know, apologies. I love the fact that we share this part of our job because while Lucinda is covering the blog and stores, I'm able to practise and build the artistry side of our brand. It helps stimulate my creative juices and my skills as an artist are growing. I see the difference.

Makeup is personal. In my case it's an acquired skill, 'cause listen to me now, a little while ago, I'll be the first to admit, I was mehhhhh and maybe less than. But my biggest critic, is me. There is NO ONE out there who picks apart my work like I do. I'm working hard to get my skills on point, but isn't that what life is about? Learning, growing and developing.


Well this journey has been long and hard, but I would not trade it for all the tea in China. I have made new friends, gained followers, recognition and developed a love and passion for cosmetics that I didn't know I had. Oh and heeyyyyy to the critics and people who absolutely do NOT like my…

Overview: Maybelline Color Elixir By Color Sensational

The elixirs are available in 20 "spellbinding shades". I've seen them locally at Contour Beauty, Paradise Beauty Supply, #1 Beauty Supply, iMart, Massy Stores and Collins. The prices range from $17.20 to $20+ (5 ml or 0.17 fl. oz. - about the same size as a M.A.C lip glass) depending on the store; the colour range available also varies.

From the site: "Fall under the spell of the elixir effect. Hyper-saturated color, ultra cushiony feel. The new hypnotic lip sensation

Why You'll Love It:
A trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss
Our exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers a polished , even application and smoothing sensation to lips

For Best Results:
Apply lipcolor with applicator wand starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip".


I have six shades to share wi…

First Impression: Free Spirits Cosmetics

Free Spirits Cosmetics is a line created by one of our very own, Leandra Simmons. #rep246 Currently the range consists of Matte Lipsticks and Lip Stains in a variety of colours.

I was tardy to the party to pick up these lip products and suffered the consequences. A lot of the shades I wanted to try are sold out and some have even been discontinued (R.I.P 'Rum Punch'). At this time, to my knowledge, Free Spirits Cosmetics is carried locally at Celebrity Spot in Bridgetown and Metal and Black and White Boutiques in Sheraton Mall.

The staff at Celebrity Spot told me their stock sold out in a day.
I purchased the 'Lolapop' lipstick and 'Coral Reef' lip stain for myself and the 'Thug Life' lip stain for Katrina because she was interested in trying a black lippie. Online you can purchase the Free Spirits Cosmetics line via The Fashion Junkie LLC.
'Lolapop' is a grey toned lavender lipstick th…

Thank you Marcela!

Moden Makeup strives to give you information from a dual phase approach: Heidi as a certified makeup artist with loads of experience working with different skin tones and types; and myself - a regular shopper who is just looking for the best products for personal use. As the average consumer, I appreciate knowing where I can get the best deals and latest releases in the beauty industry. I figured you would too hence why the posts on our Facebook page of the things we find island wide. I said allllll that to say, one random afternoon in Cave Shepherd, doing the very thing I'm always doing - looking to see what's new - I met the Senior Account Coordinator for the Caribbean and Central America of The Estee Lauder Companies Inc. *faint*

Marcela and I chatted briefly about her stay in Barbados, her trips to other Caribbean countries and of course the new Estee Lauder releases. I pretty much gushed non stop about the Pure Color Envy lipsticks and hounded her regarding Barbados getti…
