Most of us owe our current makeup game to Jaclyn Hill. The YouTube beauty vlogger and professional makeup artist works in partnership with huge brands to create cult-favorite products, while also helping us all blend out our contours with her addicting makeup tutorials. If you've had a busy year and are looking for her greatest hits, here are the 13 best Jaclyn Hill tutorials of 2015.
Jaclyn Hill is a 25 year-old, Florida-based beauty vlogger that is best known for her collaboration with BECCA Cosmetics for her have-to-have cheek highlight, Champagne Pop. The compact broke the Sephora record for the most purchased product on its first day of release. Yep, it's kind of a big deal. In addition to her collaboration with BECCA, she's launched collaborations with MakeupGeek and Gerard Cosmetics, just to name a few.
It's official that her first makeup line will launch in 2016, starting off with a lipstick line set to launch in February. I can't wait to get my hands on the products, but in the meantime I plan on freshening up my makeup knowledge and techniques. Hill's YouTube channel has a little bit of everything, from bare-faced, soul-filled encouragement videos to product swatches, full-face tutorials, and store hauls. Grab some popcorn and get ready to binge, because these are the best tutorials from the past year.
1. Emerald Smoky Eye & Double-Winged Liner Tutorial

2. Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial
This is a natural, fresh-faced look that you can wear anywhere.

These warm, earthy reds look amazing and is a total trend right now. It's a great, more wearable alternative to a dark, smoky eye.

This look is classic for a reason: It works for everyone. You can wear an understated nude lip or amp it up with a cool red.
