Your Beauty Questions Answered

Simone closes out this Q and A session with a whopper! She wants to know the necessary basics for a makeup kit; whether you're on a budget or you can afford to splurge. WOW. I've always said that I have no interest in doing other people's makeup. Just thinking about what I spend on things for myself...geez. But the true nature of makeup artistry is well, artistry. You can be like MacGyver and create masterpieces if you truly understand how your tools work.

#TeamModen placed itself in a unique position from the time I joined as a 'Product Analyst'... truly I'm just a shopaholic who is searching for the best of everything but Heidi decided on that fancy term. We provide you with a dual phase approach to beauty: 1) from a professionally trained and accredited Makeup Artist and 2) as regular girly girl beauty lovers/shoppers.

Suffice to say, I'm not the trained one but I will still share my two cents and we'll see what Heidi has to say. Here are two videos you can refer to:

Those are pretty comprehensive. I think even if you had money to blow it'd still make sense to be economical based on how often you have to replace products.

Of course, who wouldn't love to be fully branded out...


But honestly, we know that all brands have hits and misses.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
