Jaclyn Hill FOTD

Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette 
Face of the Day



I've had this palette for a while and haven't been able to decide how I truly feel about it. It sold out in the first 15 minutes or something ridiculous like that, and then was on back order for a few months, and once it was back in stock took even longer to be distributed due to a hold up with the shipping center being on strike. I'm telling you, people were HURTIN for this palette, myself included!! Here are the colors the palette holds, all of which were selected by famed makeup guru Jaclyn Hill ( LOVE HER! Girl Crush x10!) 


As you can see the palette is very warm, and has mostly matte and shimmer colors ranging from purples to oranges. You're pretty set with this palette for any season, for an array of looks. The browns are rich but I'm still working on developing layers with them! It seems they aren't as buildable as I'd like, but I'll be trying some new looks going forward with more of the copper colors. Overall the price is only $28, which is FANTASTIC for a guru inspired/designed ANYTHING! Most palettes with colors like these range upwards of $50!  Another great advantage to having this palette is that there are SO many folks who love Jacyln and have done tutorials for 100 million different looks!! 

The look I did in my "AFTER" pictures mixes cranberry with browns for a dark Holiday look. I used the color next to the green in the palette on the lid and built it into the crease with a ton of browns, both matte and shimmer. I lined the top lid with wet n wild gel liner (which is bomb.com) and dusted the lower last lid with the cranberry colors as well. Do you have a go-to holiday look?! Comment below, I'd love to give it a try!
