Bare Minerals palette Jill Franks QVC

Eye Eye!


I decided this year I would try some new eyeshadows.

I am someone who, once I find a colour or two that I love, I stick with it. I never wore eyeshadow for everyday (only TV or theatre) until I discovered Mally Eyeshadow Sticks, which I love in dusk and violet. They are so quick and easy and now I can’t ever imagine not wearing eyeshadow at all.


I am not someone who likes heavy make-up and, in fact, a heavy make-up does make me look so much older. It just doesn’t suit me. After all I have made up my own face for many years and you get to know what suits you best.You know what you like and what you don’t like.

I am a huge Daniel Sandler fan and I love Mally too. Plus, my no-foundation foundation by Perricone –
that’s another blog another day!

I had a good scour of our website and speaking with a few of our guests I decided to order a few new eyeshadow pallettes. How gorgeous are these fabulous colours?

Check out these gorgeous colours by Bobbi Brown and bareMinerals.

bareMineralsI am used to the Mally creamy texture, so I went gently on loading the brush and had a play around with browns, greys, creams, pinks and nudes. Matt shadows and a few with sparkle. I have always been good at application and copying the pro’s techniques.

I was also trained may years ago by many of the top make-up brands and done live make-up demonstrations. I use to love getting makeup books with different looks and creating them on myself or girlfriends. It’s amazing how a a tiny change can create a whole new look.



Let me know your favourite make-up brands and any eyeshadows you have recently tried!

Have a great week!

Much love

    Hi Jill
    nice to talk make up!
    I have a front cover pallet from a while ago with loads in, I dont wear eyeshadow most days, but its got great choice, but the shadow doesnt stay in the container the prettiest, it has good choice of matts and sparkle to.
    I love the taste of laura Gellar lipgloss! toffee / caramel taste! but this only gives a light shine,
    I think balance and brighten is great as an easy foundation, ,over all I am not much of a foundation fan and I adore a minty mally lipstick, but was most disappointed that the mally make up in general in the try me smudges and runs….not what I expected.
    I love eyeliner and lipsticks, I think it would be good if qvc had more lipstick. I know you like gloss best.
    Hope your well

    Hi Jill
    I enjoy watching all your presentations, you explain everything so well.
    While watching tsv today for Revitalash (I’m hoping to treat myself) I hope you don’t mind me asking but I really love the colour of your hair, your hair always looks so shiny and the colour looks really warm. Would you mind letting me know what colour you use.
