Monkey See, Monkey Do

It’s safe to assume that if you follow my blog, you’re a beauty blogger/YouTuber addict just like me. I spend an exorbitant amount of my life watching other people apply makeup, chat about products they love + live their lives (who else is devastated that Vlogmas is over?!). One of my all time favorites is Jaclyn Hill, a makeup artist known for her love of a cat eye, smoking out that lower lash line + having a bold personality. I love her. I think she is insanely talented, so down to earth, honest + hilarious. That being said, when she posted her NYE look I knew I had to give it a shot, even though it intimidated me!

One of the coolest parts of makeup is seeing how a look progresses, how it can go from looking like a sloppy mess to a work of art with a blending brush + some patience. I wanted to share my recreation of Jaclyn’s look with you guys! I didn’t film it, but I can if you’d like! I wore this on NYE + absolutely loved it. I’ve never done a double liner before but honestly, it was so easy!

Who are your favorite YouTubers? I am always looking for more talented people to inspire me!

Alos, if you aren’t following me on other forms of social media, DO IT!

    1. Thank you so so much 😀 I haven’t even attempted to get onto the Morphe site, launches are always a hot mess! When she released 1995 with Gerard Cosmetics the website was so shot it took me a couple weeks to be able to successfully order! I hope your experience is MUCH better than mine, keep me posted! I will definitely check that channel out, thank you for the recommendation 🙂

    1. Thanks girl! I really appreciate your support 🙂 It’s pay day so I am perusing the Sephora website + trying to talk myself out of buying all the Makeup Geek foiled shadows…you know how real the struggle is!


      1. I know that life… I have to physically put my phone & computer far away from me, because online shopping is my favorite thing…probably in the world to do… Also, you just reminded me its pay you aren’t going to be the only one stalking sephora. HA. What products are do you currently have your eye on?!


      2. Soooo many. I want those MUG Foiled Shadows, might have to pick a couple and just do it because I love everything Marlena makes. Then I’ve been peeping serums, I want something for nighttime cause I ran out of my Body Shop Vitamin E serum..might just repurchase cause I loved it + it’s on sale! I also really want a new highlighter…any reccomendations? What are you eyeing?


      3. Well, I really want to get a bottle of the Josie Maran Argan Oil, because I finally splurged and bought the Argan Oil Milk…and its incredible! I used to be afraid of oils on faces because of breakouts…but its honestly improved my breakouts! I also am super curious about the Bite Smashed Agave Lip Mask..I don’t totally understand it, but its something different… A little pricey though for not knowing what you’re getting into lol OH, and the new Yves St Laurent Lip Oils.. look so amazing, but again…they are like $32, which I’d pay if I knew I’d like the product but… yeah. haha..I could go on forever… hahaha I’m going to do a blog on my 2014 should follow me! Seems like we have a lot in common (and its ALWAYS nice to have someone to talk makeup with!) ha! 🙂


      4. Oooh that all sounds so nice + luxurious. I am starting to save to buy a house so I am trying not to become too infatuated with all these lovely products but I can’t help it! I definitely am going to follow you!! 🙂 looking forward to your favorites!! I’m posting a little somethin’ somethin’ this weekend about mine as well.


  1. Great job!! I do watch alot makeup tutorials and hope to discover other techniques and products than my own. I’m a makeup artist too but Omg jaclyn hill is the best! I love her videos AND personality. Another great youtube personality is Nikkie Tutorials. She’s from Holland but tutorials are all in English 😉 Desi Perkins is also a great youtube blogger. Xx
