This is one my favourite makeup looks so far… I love that the bronze gold smokey eye is soft and I am such a fan of bronze, glowing skin. This is definitely a contender for my bridal makeup look for the wedding, so let me know your thoughts!

I’m currently in Vancouver and am so incredibly happy to see my family and friends… it’s hard to live away from them! We have our engagement party this weekend (YAY!) so stay tuned for some photos from that.

    So, I too revolve my life around my two dogs and two cats. A family who treats their pets as equals are truly beautiful people with the best hearts. So good to hear. I’m not surprised tho bc I think the world of you. XO!

    Another beautiful makeup look on you Jill. I agree, perfect for your wedding. I’m so glad you are doing your own makeup on your special day.

    That Marc Jacobs bronzer is the bomb! Love the smell too.

    Enjoy your time in Vancouver with family and regal beasts.

    I would love to see your brows/microbladding!

    Jill – it would be really helpful you showed all your tools/brushes on a page with descriptions of what they are for. Thanks!

    THis is stunning thank you!! Can you do a video on an everyday/work-appropriate eye look with shadow/liner that isn’t too involved but gives some defintion? THanks!

    A video about concealing blemishes and scars would be great! I find it difficult to get the right coverage.

      Agreed, and it’s easy to go overboard. Will be filming this soon 🙂

    Hey Jill, great tutorial as always, you are beautiful! Was wondering if you set your Makeup Forever under eye concealer with a powder? Do you find it creases?

      Thank you! Yes, I do set it with a Charlotte Tilbury powder. It doesn’t crease for the most part! It’s one of my fav concealers.

    hi, this makeup suits you really well 🙂
    and thank you for the idea of fast tanning, I’ve never tried something like that before, and I live in Northern city

    I love this look! I’ve been waiting for someone to review the Marc Jacobs coconut primer and dew drops. I came across your Instagram and I love your blog!

      I’m so glad! Have you tried the primer or dew drops yet? They’re some of my favourites.
