The social media tools we have developed over the past few years have allowed for quite a bit of novelty, and that includes Youtube vlogging. We have people doing all sorts of interesting things on all the different platforms and many new trends have appeared here and there and everywhere. When it comes to the world of sharing your fashion tips, there is one particular fan favorite, who sticks out of late quite a bit. She is Jaclyn Hill, makeup artist and vlogger extraordinaire, who has turned her fashionable lifestyle into a website curating to the fashion needs of women across the world. While her style may not appeal to every single person out there, we can easily say she does have great taste and those cat eyes she draws on? Well, they are simply breathtaking.
Jaclyn Hill is available on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube, as well as through her own website, and seems to enjoy the colder Florida days from her latest posts. What has caught our attention these days though is her post on her being very human. A 12:30 minute video on Youtube is all about Jaclyn Hill’s real self and her rant against the negativity that takes over her comments section on a constant basis. What we love most about the video, other than her raw emotions and real desire to see calm and happiness before her is the fact that she is not wearing any makeup. She has the bare face and it is positively beautiful!
Jaclyn Hill is a bubbly personality, an incredibly positive, very energetic individual with a love for life. Her videos show that, her pictures show that and her video titled “Trying to Make a Change” on Late Night Thoughts really brings it to light. She is a woman who enjoys every second to the fullest and fashion is a passion for her. Hurtful and negative comments are a dime a dozen on social media, particularly Youtube, where people feel cocky as they hide behind computers and make anonymous remarks to others, instead of focusing on the positive the world can offer.
“I feel like a lot of people forget that I have blood in my veins,” Hill says in the video. “I cry when I’m sad, I bleed when I get cut, and I’m a real person.” It feels like many forget about that very thing. Hill is not the only one who is as human as the rest of us and just become someone appears on a video does not mean he or she should be subjected to ridicule. We should all work towards creating a more positive community instead of jumping down each other’s throats for every comment made that could very well be deemed offensive by some parties. So long as we turn to respect instead, we can see a more cohesive community devoid of the digital bullying that has become all too common since everyone was given access to computers and Internet communications.
We are really excited to see more of Jaclyn Hill and her videos on different types of makeup that fit each occasion, particularly when it includes that fabulous eyeliner!
