Check out the Top 5 makeup challenges we're tackling.
If there's one thing I learned in 2017, it's the importance of skincare. Establishing a routine that not only banishes blemishes, but also prevents inflammation — which causes a variety of issues like acne and signs of aging — is the key to a flawless base. Incorporating the MODA® Spa Facial Treatment & Cleansing Kit - BMD-SPASET2 (displayed left) (displayed above) into my routine ensures the sometimes pricey products I'm using are working at their full potential.

Eliminating bacterial buildup on brushes goes hand-in-hand with a solid skincare routine in terms of creating a pristine complexion. When brushes collect product over time, an assortment of skin concerns may arise, ranging from acne all the way up to infections. Washing foundation brushes biweekly using the MODA® Heart Scrubby Cleaning Pad - BMD-T01 (displayed right) (displayed above) is a good practice, as these tools tend to collect more buildup. All other brushes can be washed monthly - with spot cleanings in between use. F.Y.I. - washing brushes saves money in the long run as it keeps the brushes in quality shape.
As the beauty industry keeps booming, more innovative tools are on the rise. Royal & Langnickel plus MODA® have released not only beautifully bold tools, but also functional brush shapes to deliver optimal results. With these new arrivals, apprehension can emerge for those who are not fond of change. Let us be your experts, as we have been in the industry over 30 years. If you're still skeptical of a new style, visit our YouTube channel to watch demos of how to use these products.
Dark Circles Be Gone
Not sleeping and dehydration seem to be a side effect of adulthood in the 21st century. It's best to tackle the issue head-on, but unfortunately sometimes it's unavoidable. Color correcting is a makeup tactic that will help you fake that 8 hours of sleep and 2.7 liters of water you're missing in your diet. Challenge your under eye circles with orange concealer to neutralize darkness and apply green concealer to combat redness in the T-zone. The MODA® Triad Concealer - BMD-211 (displayed left) (displayed above) is great to pair with these products due to its pointed tip. Hint - the darker the discoloration, the deeper the shade you need to neutralize the area.
If you're anything like me, drawing a straight line along the lash line is a strain in itself. When you combine small, hooded eyes to the mix, forget it! Luckily there are a variety of tutorials from bloggers to provide visibility and ease in executing such a mighty task. The MODA® Tight Liner - BMD-475 (displayed bottom left) (displayed above) is the perfect tool to get your eyeliner game strong. If you're feeling extra bold, use the MODA® Falsie Fan - BMD-520 (displayed bottom right) (displayed below) to blend your false lashes into your eye look.
