My Every Day Cruelty-Free Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone! Today I’m so excited to share my quick (and EASY!!) everyday makeup tutorial with you! All of the products I’m using in this tutorial are my favourites … and the best part is, they are all cruelty-free!!!

As most of you know, Kaitlin does my makeup when I’m on set so when I’m at home I generally don’t bother putting any makeup on unless I have to run out for a meeting or out for dinner, etc. However, even if I DO have to toss some makeup on I try to do it as fast and effortless as I can!!

Ps. I’ve made sure to link ALL of the products I used in this tutorial over on the Beauty Must-Haves section of my site! Anddd … I’ll link them below for you as well to make things SUPER EASY, all you have to do is click on the picture!

    The links for the products you posted say not available in Canada to ship

    Try switching the country from US to Canada!! That might be the issue!! Let me know if that works! xo

    You’re adorable as always. However, one thing I think you NEED to try for yourself is Nerium’s Eye-V Hydrogels and the Age-Defying Eye Serum. From one mum to another these are lifesavers and must have products. I would love to share with you and the girls if you’re up for proving me with feedback. I’m a BC gal living in AB but we are coming through for a wedding at the end of the month. Lemme know… seems that our values align. No animal testing on our products!

    Thanks for sharing your routine! I’m always looking for great cruelty-free makeup products and now I’ve got a few more to add to the list 🙂

    Hey, Jilly! What products do you use for dry skin?

    I have been looking for natural products for winter! (I’m going to have to try those lip crayons )

    Thanks, Nicolette

    MAC sells their products in China. The Chinese government mandates their products be tested on animals before they can be sold in their country. Therefore MAC is not cruelty free.

    Hi Jillian…your makeup looked great…totally natural yet gave you a nice “put-together” look. Can you share why you don’t use MAC products anymore, it was unclear in the video. Thank you ?

  10. Julie Mahoney

    July 6th, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    Love this! Hate those beauty blenders too. Prefer to use my fingers! Can you share some of your other fav foundations?

  11. Kacey

    July 6th, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    You are effortlessly and flawlessly beautiful…with or without the makeup! Can’t wait to look into some of the products you used!

    Hi Jillian!

    Thank you for doing this! Just goes to show that a little can go a long way! You’re absolutely stunning! Where is your makeup mirror from?

  15. Laura

    July 6th, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    Great video! I’m very curious to know what kind of brush you are using in the video to apply your bronzer and blush. Thanks!

    July 6th, 2018 at 5:43 pm

    Beeeautiful! Love the tips…any tips for overall skin tone consistency? I’m finding the mid thirties has me with a few sun spots and inconsistencies, considering a peel or light treatment but just not sure. Would love tips on this portion of your skincare routine…thanks for sharing and really loving how you are highlighting products that at are cruelty free ❤️

    Hi Jillian, great video! Why did you stop using M.A.C.? I couldn’t catch what you said.. do they test on animals? ?
    Thank you!

    I love that you use all crulety free products and that you have a platform to promote them!
    You a beautiful person inside and out and I love watching your tutorials.

    It might be worth re-thinking your use of Kat Von D products. She has recently come out and said that she’s anti-vaccination. Most people I know have stopped using her products because of this.

  23. Jenn

    July 9th, 2018 at 9:55 am

    Love the natural look and the fact that you’re using cruelty free makeup! I recently switched to using Elate Cosmetics which I loooove. They’re cruelty free, non toxic and have reusable, refillable containers. I love that more companies are popping up to promote the nontoxic and cruelty free. I’m going to be shopping a few of the brands you mentioned here too!

  24. Julie Jahnz

    July 9th, 2018 at 12:49 pm

    what brush do you use for the Nude by Nature Bondi Bronzer and you face power . I already bought some of the products your recommended, great video and very natural

    Thanks for the tutorial!

    As always love your posts!!!
    I would love to see a video of Kaitlin doing your make-up as well. She is so talented. She really lets your natural beauty shine through 🙂

    I just picked up GLO minerals in trademark today! I live in Denver, Colorado and it turns out they are a local company! Love it so far. Thanks for the tip, it’s so hard to find a good neutral matte lip that isn’t drying!

    You are adorable.

    I wet my beauty blender now, surprise surprise, it works so much better now! hahah

    Love this tutorial! Since you hadn’t worn the Tarte foundation before, how did you like it after a few hours?? Whenever I wear foundation or concealer around my eyes I feel it stings, makes me just want to wash it all off. Is the Tarte matte or dewy and did it bother you around your eyes at all? Thanks!

  31. Kate Black

    July 17th, 2018 at 11:48 am

    Thank you for this!!! Loved seeing your daily makeup routine.

  32. Julie

    July 19th, 2018 at 6:35 am

    I went to Feelunique great website with all the products. If you get a chance to tell me the powder and bronzer brush, I want to order that too. I love the look , Thanks again

    Have you tried Beautycounter?! Love it!! Cruelty free and bans 1500 unsafe /questionable ingredients!

  35. Lisa Bean

    August 15th, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Wondering if you could share where the mirror is from? I love how big the mirrors are and as you well know after you hit your mid 40’s the eye site starts to go a bit…lol

    BTW..I love your decor style and pretty much everything else you talk about too!!

  36. Delaina Eckstein

    August 16th, 2018 at 12:27 pm

    I love your look . You are beautiful
    Inside and out . I was so excited to watch this tutorial but , I’m a little confused on why you are calling products you are using for the first time your “ all time favourites “ it just felt like you were trying to market for companies . I’m sorry , I just have to be honest . But of course you look beautiful and I was happy to learn of some of the staples you use .

    I have been trying to find the shampoo bar You suggested

    Can you share the blush brush that you used for bronzer and blush? It looked soft.

    Hi girls, love the new site! Jillian asked if we noticed anything and the link to the Beauty Must-haves is not working!


  41. Jen Olmstead

    January 31st, 2019 at 12:17 pm

    Hey, Jane! Is it working now? Here’s the direct link, just in case!

  42. Donna

    January 24th, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    I was wondering Jillian, do you use lip filler ?

  43. Brooke

    March 18th, 2019 at 8:51 am

    Hi Jill! Great tutorial. I was wondering if you can confirm that you use the Saje lavender mist for make up setting? Can you also confirm that it gives a slight dewy glow? I just wanted to make sure before I purchase. Thank you so much!

  44. Jillian Harris

    March 20th, 2019 at 8:17 am

    I always spray on the lavender (or rose!!) mist before applying my makeup but I’m not sure if it’s exactly what it was intended for!! Either way, it’s SUCH a nice relaxing mist to spray yourself with!!! xoxo

  45. Susan

    March 19th, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Hello, just wondering if you have tried Elate cosmetics. I believe they are cruelty free vegan and from Victoria BC
    I also like how they package their products as well.
    Take care
    Thank you
