The 90’s are when I really got into makeup. I remember my mom bought me a Kevyn Aucoin book and I poured over it. The soft browns and nudes were such a departure from the harsh colours of the 80’s and I loved it. When I was sent this Bite Beauty multistick, it evoked a certain 90’s supermodel monochrome look that I knew I had to recreate. Hope it’s helpful!

    I use the same eyelash curler and eyebrow pencil! How do you like that concealer and mascara? I have super dark (hereditary) under eye circles that I just layer on the concealer to cover up. I’ve also got long lashes but they’re not thick, and I heavily coat my mascara to pump them up. How does this one work for you?

      The Shu Uemura is the best hey?! I love this concealer, it’s a newer one for me and I find it works really well under the eyes. A trick I use is to apply it thickly, and then let it set or bake for a few minutes. Then I tap it to blend it in with my finger.

      I’ve literally never found another mascara I like as much as the Diorshow. Really wiggle it at the roots of your lashes to get volume.

      If you try them let me know your thoughts!

    Thrilled to see that you posted another video this morning Jill! Keep them coming.

    I’m also a fan of the Smashbox primer along with the other products you use.

    Patiently awaiting for the next video 🙂

        I like anything to do with make up especially tips on eye makeup.

        What about a video on suggestions for a weeks worth of outfits? Some of your tips?

        Thanks Jill! xo

    I love this! Your videos are great – keep them up if you feel so inspired. I would love to see some more about clothing…maybe ways to wear or a recap of recent purchases? The bite beauty sticks are so neat, I really like that they are so multi-purpose.

    Hi, I love this beauty look! I was wondering what shade your Laura mercier tinted moisturizer is in? Thank you!

    I was just wondering what you were using as eye shadow?
    It’s hard to tell in the video!
    Thanks so much!
