With the holidays fast approaching, I thought this would be the perfect time for me to share my recreation of the Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look. It’s a simple + chic holiday look that has some sparkle without being tacky. It’s actually been described as a Victoria’s Secret look – bright eyes with cat eye liner and soft pink lips. I finally got a ring light and have been loving filming videos! If you have any requests, please let me know in the comments 🙂

I also have a series of beauty giveaways this holiday season! I will be giving away some of my favourite beauty products, like a Bite Beauty 18-piece lip kit, my favourite Smashbox products, and many more. Stay tuned for the first one coming up soon!

    I have used Anastasia Brow Wiz for years and I just started using Benefits Precisely My Brow. It goes on with a much finer point and more pigment- perfect for making it look like hair. You should check it out!

    Great video, thanks for posting. I love seeing the order that you use products and your technique, given you always look amazing. I like both of the lipstick looks but I think I am partial to the Selma in this look, similar to what you mentioned. I was wondering if and what teeth whitening method you might use, as your teeth look great. Thanks!

    Let me first say that I was very excited that you posted another makeup video Jill! Another great video with tips and tricks of the trade. Love the tip of using a clean brush to blend. I do it everyday. Going to try the face massage and bronzing the ears. Completely makes sense. I love both lipstick colours. A brow tutorial will be great.

    You’re a natural at the makeup videos. Simple, attainable and engaging. This dreamy look is very Victoria Secret and can be worn daily.

    Looking forward to the next video. Your engagement ring is gorgeous xo

    Always wanted to try CT! You did a great job in recreating the look, nailed that winged liner. Some of those tips were good too, thank you for sharing!

    Same here! Just recently found you on instagram and have been obsessing over your blog since – really loving the makeup + hair tutorials… A full brow tutorial would be great, love the “bushiness” you achieve – would be great to hear your tips and tricks!

    Your blog and your makup tutorial are great !
    I have a question, which one of the bronzer are you using please (the lighter to médium or the medium to darker) ? Sorry we do not have charlotte T. On France and no way to try her products, but you seem a little tan on the video and i assume that the color used would ne ok for me.
    Thanks you Very much !!

      Hi love! Thank you so much! I use the light-medium shade and it’s great whether I have a tan or not 🙂

      Hope that’s helpful!
