Best Way to Use the Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe (video tutorial as well)



Today’s video and blog are all about the Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe. I love this palette and I don’t regret buying it all. It retails on the Morphe site (and is now available at Ulta!!!) for $38 USD. Totally worth it for the 35 shadows you get. Now, this is one of those palettes that has had a bit of controversy here and there. I believe this may be due to some of the more shimmer shades being a little finicky. They absolutely do work and they can even look like foiled metal with certain techniques. I believe that is the key to this palette, just know which technique to use with which shades. This palette is of the rare occasions where there is an affordable palette with matte shades that are absolute perfections but you have to work with some of the shimmers. Some people may be getting a bit of heartburn because you do have to work with some of the shadows BUT, let’s face it, this is a Morphe palette. We aren’t talking Natasha Denona here. Not knocking Morphe or affordable brands, but don’t expect a $38 palette to perform like a $129 palette. I’ve found they ALL swatch great but on the lid they can be sheer or crumble unless you use your finer or (drumroll please) and sponge tip applicator. I feel like when you use your finger with shadows you lose some of the precision so I was thinking “what is similar to using your finger but not?” I then thought about all those unused sponge tip applicators I have in my freelance kit as backup just in case that never get used. I pulled them out and BINGO!! Beautiful, rich, pigmented color. I hope you enjoy today’s video tutorial and discussion about this palette. Please subscribe and Have a Great Day, Gorgeous!!

Simple, Holiday Makeup Look (video)


Thank you guys so much for watching my Simple Holiday Makeup Look. I’m using the Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe but you can use WHATEVER shadows you have. It’s a basic eyeshadow technique of midtone in the crease, deep tone in the “outer V” and lighter tone and/or shimmer on the lid, with a highlighted brow bone. If you have more “mature” or crepe eyelids, just use the same technique using only Matte shadows.
