After receiving this Armani palette, I decided to play around and see what I came up with. What transpired was an everyday neutral smokey eye makeup look with a winged liner (and a few laughs along the way – I feel like my personality really came out in this one). I hope you guys enjoy this week’s tutorial!

As always, all products are listed in the video and linked below… Have a lovely day!

    I always love your videos and you keep me entertained with the rawness. You are a natural.

    I love this eye makeup on you! My favourite. Your eyes pop!

    And the clean make up brush to blend eye shadow I do all the time since you gave me this tip. Best tip ever!

    Question? Do you ever use a flesh tone eyeliner on your water line? They say it opens your eyes. I don’t but am curious.

      I’m so glad it was helpful! Yes, I’ve used flesh toned liner on my waterline, I think it helps to open your eyes. I did in my NYE tutorial here: 🙂

        Thanks Jill! I will try it too.

        I got the Charlotte Tilbury glow and love it! So easy to apply. I also got her face mask and its amazing. I will definitely be getting more of her products.

        Patiently awaiting your next video.

    Have you tried the Marc Jacobs liquid liner/ lacquer??!! It’s amaze-balls! and goes on perfectly in ONE shot! It comes in brown and black. You will have a new fave! *Sorry for the exclamation points 😉 Thanks for the blog.

    Great tutorial Curious how you spell the name of the white makeup brush brand, the one that was a promo only brush? Thanks!

    Hi Jill,

    I recently discovered your blog and I’m obsessed. Also, your makeup tutorials are excellent. So keep up the good work!

    Thanks for linking the products. Just wondering how are you liking Deciem products? You mentioned you have thin hair (me too), what kind of shampoo do you use?

    Thanks so much in advance!

      Thank you so much! The Deciem products are ok – my skin is super sensitive and reacts quite easily so the retinol was too strong for me. In terms of shampoo, I switch it up all the time! I like John Frieda sheer blonde as well as the volume shampoo + bumble and bumble surf shampoo.

      xx Jill
