I know that everyone’s writing 2018 goal setting posts and tips for being your best self, etc, etc. But at this point, I’m still in holiday mode and so I wanted to share a dark red lipstick tutorial with you that would be perfect for any evening out (but particularly for New Year’s Eve)! I was incredibly inspired by the MAC matte liquid lipcolour that they sent over and I kind of built a tutorial around that.

    yes, I understand needing to avoid the slippery lip while still keeping em’ moisturized. I’m a huge fan of classic red lip so I get it. Great tutorial as always, Jill! I would love love love to see you do an intense smokey eye using black shadow & liner with some browns mixed in. When everything else is subdued, I think that look is so stunning.
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

    Too much bronzer!!! it looks like dirt on your face. Okay, I’ll stop but so many cringe moments. I just started the video. Like did you tattoo your eyebrow and bleach your teeth. You should tone that down a notch. And you don’t need anything on your face. your beyond gorgeous, stop messing it up.

    I may have missed this in the video, but what color MAC Strobe Cream did you use?
