I got my paws on the latest Becca collab with Jaclyn Hill….GUYS! It’s beautiful. But I definitely need a tan to be able to rock these shades more confidently. I think a fun drinking game for this video (water, coffee, whatever, you do you) would be to take a sip every time I say the word tan. Honestly, it gets a little out of hand. Regardless, the shades are gorgeous and are INSANELY pigmented. Almost too pigmented. Use the lightest hand ever when applying each of the shades to the face because this shiz means business.
As I am typing this post it has been about 5 hours since application and my cheeks are still going strong. Somehow there has been little to no fading and I am glowing like a firefly. My boyfriend told me I looked like Nikki Tutorials today with the intense cheek and I was so happy I almost passed out. What a dude.
Hi you guys! I’m back! If you didn’t know, I took a little break because I just wasn’t feeling it. And I didn’t want to film or do anything relative to YT, but I think that breaks are good! I was also sick, and I traveled to see my sister to be her date to the Marine Ball so the past couple weeks have been busy. Anyways, I posted on my Facebook just letting people know I was feeling uninspired, and the outpouring of love I got blew my mind. The support was unreal, and there was no way I could walk away from something I not only enjoy, but it turns out that it brings joy to others, too! 🙂
Here’s a little Get Ready With Me that I filmed the other day. I had just received my November Ipsy bag, so I used a bunch of those items in this look! Not going to lie, I couldn’t help myself and talked basically the entire time so it’s a long one. Love you guys!

When I saw this video by Jaclyn Hill, I low key lost my mind. Not only were the new matte shades by Makeup Geek gorgeous, but I owned the very shimmery green and purple shadows she was using on her lid (insert happy dance!). It took me juuuuust about 12 hours to re-create the look and I am SO GLAD I did! I obviously don’t have the MUG mattes yet (they don’t come out until later this week), so I used what I had already, mixing and applying, praying the results would yield something similar to my girl JH. The green is a duochrome called Secret Garden and to be honest, I had no clue how I was going to make this shadow work but Jaclyn showed me the way with sandy browns, purples and even some poppy pink.
My version is below…I tweeted it (@AmberRae) and was stunned when Marlena herself RT’d it! I have been freaking out on the inside pretty much all day about it. I didn’t edit these at all, sometimes I will play with light to show true pigmentation but I didn’t need to for these. I hope you guys enjoy, and if you’d like a tutorial on this look let me know and I would be more than happy to film it for you! xoxo

Today’s video is less makeup and more Autumn/Fall chit chat! Let me know if you like these kinds of videos and I will certainly do more. If it isn’t obvious after you watch this video, I freakin’ love this season and was pumped to talk about it. Hope you all have a beautiful Autumn full of horror flicks, apple picking and all the seasonal beverages!
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!
