    I died my hair yesterday and it turned out super dark the lady helping me said it was brown anyways i have very pale skin , and when i showed up to school my friend told me i looked scary , worst compliment ever i was already feeling bad about the situation and she made me feel worse i skipped my last two periods because i was so upset and embarrassed ! I got over it after watching jaclyns videos because shes gourgeous with dark hair and pale skin so not even going to stress about it and going to leave my hair the way it is because i like it !

    I came across your name on the morphe website when I was reordering a few brushes so I had to look you up. I've been watching your vids for a cpl of weeks now and I just need to say thank you SOO much! Your videos are very entertaining and I dont watch you on mute like 90% of the makeup tutorials. You make me laugh and thanks to you I dont look like a jackass when I attempt a smokey eye.

  • ryan cassel

    Least you can tan 😂😂. I feel the not being able to find a color match. And having such pale skin everything showed through even worse. Bags and dark circles? It looks like you have 2 black eyes. And the only foundation that is a true color match to me is the Fenty in the lightest shade but it dries and comes off through out the day. And I can’t not wear foundation because I look sick or look like I got in a fight 😐 any tips for that 😂

    I know this is probably a novice question. But what do you do about the eyeshadow that falls down onto your face when you apply your foundation first?

    • Eve

      Some people bake their undereyes with powder before doing their eyeshadow. Basically after applying foundation take a translucent powder and cover a beauty blender with some powder then pat it under your eyes where it looks like you have flour all under your eyes. Then apply your eyeshadow and the little flecks of pigment should hit that powdered area. Once your eye look is done swipe the powder completely off and there should be no pigment or powder left. This method also helps with under eye creasing. You can also try applying an eyelid/eyeshadow primer and lightly tapping your brush to get all of the extra eyeshadow off. That should help with the kickback that causes the flecks.

    Hi Jaclyn, first of all you must know I am not one of your subscribers, I bumped into you just 2 days ago because of orange eyeshadow makeup -but I decided to tell you a BIG thank you for this tutorial being pale myself and I like your energy a lot. Still you are a very patient teacher - you are just perfect combination. What you say at the end of the video - yes, yes, yes, I agree - Charlotte Tilbury says - "give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world." What is ironic, I do not wear makeup today because I woke up late :( But yesterday I had worn and there had to be something about my energy, because men and women turned their heads ... ??? /I do not write it to boast myself/

    The eye makeup still looks incredibly harsh despite the brown eyeliner... it still looks black to me. Or maybe it’s the black falsies. Either way, you look exactly like you said you didn’t want to look. Would’ve been so pretty with less eye makeup

    You obviously do you, but I think it is SOOO beautiful when people embrace their natural skintone. You have such beautiful pale skin! Flawless. I love my pale skin. Yeah, it is a struggle to be cruelty free and very pale when it comes to makeup, but when you find that right foundation it is amazing.
