In honor of the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection launching today, I wanted to share my fresh take on the Jaclyn Hill Palette! I’ve had it since last Christmas and quickly became one of my go-to palettes. If you’re a beginner in makeup or you’re a licensed pro, this palette has everything you need.
In creating these looks, I wanted to use as many elements of this palette as possible. This palette definitely leans warm rather than cool, but there is such a diversity of shades that you can create practically anything. The Vault palettes seem to very fitting supplements to this mega-palette, but I won’t know until I actually play with them.
If you’re staring at it a bit overwhelmed, I suggest watching the video Jaclyn created explaining all the shades. I found it super informative, and I always love learning about the inspiration behind lines and products. I also suggest taking a look at the easy looks I created below!
**Notes: I know my eyebrows are messy, but I’m trying to grow them out! Also the lighting situation in a few of the pictures because I did some in natural lighting and others with flash. It started to rain where I live, and I wanted to have this post up on the day of the Vault launch, so it was the best I could do!
Also know I primed my lids with concealer and set them with a translucent powder. With any of the shimmers I used a glitter glue. This is standard for me as it makes the shadows last all day.
Jaclyn Hill Palette Look 1
Step 1: MFEO, Butter, and Porter in the crease. Step 2: Faint and Little Lady mixed all over the lid. This is super similar to a look I did with the Norvina Palette
. This is something I wear to work all the time because it’s quick and neutral!
Step 1: MFEO and Pooter in the crease. Step 2: Mocha and Chip blended on the outer V and into the outer crease but I don’t bring it any further in. Step 3: Obsessed (my favorite shade in the palette) on the lid. Step 4: If you want an easy to add a pop of color, using it on the lower lash line like I did with Pool Party is an easy way to do so!
**The flash lightened this look. It actually came out way darker and is more for nighttime! Step 1: MFEO and Pooter in the crease. Step 2: Enchanted and Central Park blended in the outer V and on the outer edge of the crease. I don’t bring this in deeper at all. Step 3: Diva on the lid.
Step 1: Silk creme, butter, and pukey blended into the crease to create a deep gradient look. Step 2: Buns, Roxanne, and Jacz layered on the outer V and blended slightly into the crease. Step 3: Cranapple all over the lid.
Step 1: Twerk all over the lid. Step 2: Jacz, Roxanne, Pooter, and MFEO blended in the crease (starting with Jacz right above the blue).
Brief Final Thoughts…
The Jaclyn Hill palette really is great for anyone of any makeup level. The quality of the shadows are easy to blend and don’t require to much work. The diversity of the shades allow for a beginner to experiment with color, and pros can really showcase their techniques. I’m definitely curious to see how the Vault Collection compares to the original Jaclyn Hill Palette. If you didn’t know, Morphe and Jaclyn pulled the original batch because of formula inconsistencies commented on by influencers. This is the relaunch of the improved formula. I originally wanted to get all four but I realized I’m a crazy person, and I’m only getting the Purple Palette.
You can find the Jaclyn Hill Palette at Ulta or at Morphe (discount codes apply so you can save a few $$! A bunch of YouTubers/Beauty Influencers have them so support your fav one!). You can also get the Vault on both sites as well if you’re interested. They’re $15 each and are shades that didn’t make it into the original palette. Definitely at least worth checking out if you’re remotely curious!
