Gilly's Bio

Hello beautiful people! My name is Gilly [Jill-lee], @gillyberdin on Instagram & Tik Tok. I am so honored to be MŌDA®’s Featured Maven for the month of November!

I was born and raised in the Philippines and now live in Los Angeles, California. I am a Beauty / User-Generated Content Creator and self-taught makeup enthusiast. I used to be part of a theater group in Manila. Back then we did not have professionals to help us do our makeup during shows, so I had to learn on my own.

I was in my 30s when I began putting my work out through social media in 2020. I thought that I was already late in the game, but I realized that it is never too late to start a passion. Makeup helped me develop my creative side and it brought me joy during the lowest point of my life. I practiced makeup almost every day. I mastered different techniques and developed new skills to compliment my work including photography, filming, and editing. My background in acting also helped me create engaging voice overs for my makeup videos!

Makeup tutorials, skincare and product reviews are mostly what you’ll see on my social media accounts – and a lot of coffee content on my IG stories! I love creating bold but neat makeup looks and MODA® brushes are number one on my list of tools to reach for. I am truly grateful for this opportunity! Being a MODA® Maven is a great reminder that amazing things come to those who chase their dreams.

Whether you are a pro makeup artist or someone who is just starting their makeup journey, I know that you will fall in love with the MŌDA® Pro 13pc Purple Complete Wrap Kit just like I did.

I know that it can be a little confusing to figure out what kind of brushes to buy or what makeup tools to bring, especially when you are on-the-go. Believe me when I say that this kit has EVERYTHING you need.

These brushes are uncomplicated and easy to use. Aside from their elegant look and stunning purple quilted handles, the filaments are very soft and have excellent blending performance. These tools come with a quality wrap that keeps everything together for travel or storage. My favorite brushes from this kit would have to be the BMX-430 Crease Brush & the BMX-420 Detail Brush – my combo for that perfect smokey eye look!

I truly appreciate the intentional creation of this kit. You will never see MODA® throw in random brushes with redundant purpose. All the face and eye brushes included here are essential tools, crafted with top quality, that are meant to give you the best makeup application experience. You even have the name of the brush written on the ferrule to guide you. MODA® brushes are my favorite makeup tools to use and honestly, they are better than most of my high-end brushes. You need to get this kit and you’ll thank me later!
