Amongst the very few YouTubers I follow religiously, Jaclyn Hill has come out with an eyeshadow palette of her own collaborating with Morphe Cosmetics. Now if this isn’t motivating, I don’t know what is. The colors on her palette are not only colors that she uses in her looks but are completely wearable warm colors that anyone can incorporate into their makeup routine on a daily basis.
Like seriously, I use those brown tones every single day on my crease. Now each of these eyeshadows individually sell for $2.29 on www.morphebrushes.com. However, if you were able to snatch a JH palette before it got sold out (literally within 24 hours) you are one of the lucky ones to own all of her favorite shades.
I don’t think that this palette will be re sold but if it does one day, you need to get your hands on it! I’ve uploaded a picture below with the titles of each color. Specifically, these are some of my daily favorites.. Can you tell I like warm colors?!
All in all, the palette is pretty awesome. The colors are great, the packaging is chic and Jaclyn Hill is amazing so I expect nothing less. Also, her latest product, Champagne Pop | A highlighter (and also a collaboration with Becca) is already online but will be in Sephora stores July 16th. I’M SO EXCITED!

Thanks for reading!! If you have this palette, comment below and let me know if you love it, or if you love it.
Is it though?
Isn’t strobing just a technique we all use when we’re lazy in the mornings?
If you have been on social media for the past 2 weeks, you’ll know that strobing is all the rage right now. Strobing (aka highlighting) focuses exclusively on just highlighter and illuminators as oppose to contouring that helps you define and structure your face using darker shades. Strobing focuses exactly on where the light would hit your face – in this case, it can be the highest points of your cheekbones, your nose, your temples, your cupid’s bow and even your collar bones. Although this look makes one look more angelic, radiating and glowy, I still do prefer contouring (even with the summer heat, when I have time of course).
Regardless, I had to make a video to show my subscribers what strobing is and how you can achieve it. Please see above for the video and below for a product list of what I have used.
– True Match Concealer and Illuminator
– Nars, Copacabana Illuminator
– NYX, Illuminator in Gleam
– Becca Highlighter in Opal
– Bobbi Brown, Illuminating Treatment Foundation
– Mac, Mineralize Skin Finish
So it’s been quite some time since I have had time to blog but I’m happy to say I’m back… WITH MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO! #bigdeal
I’ve been wanting to start making Youtube videos for quite some time but it’s not only challenging but can of course can also be controversial. Regardless, I put all negativity (that can come in the future) aside and said to myself, I’m gonna do it!
My first video is a tutorial for an easy everyday make up look! This is a look that I do on a daily basis (sometimes I cut the skin enhancer and Ben Nye out of my daily routine because it can get a little ‘cakey’). Other then that, it’s a quick simple and easy look that only takes about 10 minutes. A little bit about my skin: I have pretty bad eczema as well as roseacea which has left my skin to be dry and red most days! This look helps me cover that up completely with just a few steps.
Thanks so much for all of the great feedback and questions about my makeup! I wanted to share my product details with you guys, if there’s anything I left out, feel free to let me know below in the comments!
