– Hi guys, welcome back to my channel.
It's your girl Jackie Aina.
♪ Jigga, jigga, jigga, jigga ♪ (Jackie snaps) ♪ Jigga, jigga, jigga, jigga ♪ ♪ Jigga, jigga, jigga ♪ ♪ Jigga, jigga, jigga ♪ Today, I'm gonna be giving you guys a 101 lesson on how to be confident.
Confidence is definitelysomething that grows on you.
It's not something you're born with.
Well, actually, as humans, we kind of are naturallyborn to be confident, and then as you get older, life just knocks you down.
You become jaded, andyou become so inundated with what everyone else thinks.
How do you block that out? How do you take some of those things with a grain of salt and still do you? How do you constructivelytake people's feedback without beating yourselfover it all the time and becoming self-deprecating? – When do you? – I'm gonna talk all of those things.
We are also gonna get glam.
Yes, I am going to betalking about confidence while putting on five layers of makeup! That's fine, okay? 'Cause the two don'tcancel each other out.
Both can exist, one and thesame, in the same house.
So without further ado, let's just jump right in.
All right, time to prime.
I wanna talk a little bitabout what confidence is, and what confidence is not.
A lot of people be gettin' real confused.
So let's just break down my thoughts, my views, on what confidence is, and more importantly, what confidence is not.
This is the Milk Hydro Grip Primer, primer of the year, 2019, bruh, bruh! Oh, this primer is so good.
You wanna talk aboutconfidence in a bottle? Sweetie, please.
Get three, and they come in travel sizes.
I'm gonna take my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and set my primer while I preach.
Confidence is definitely not “I'm better than you, I'm prettier than you, “I'm richer than you, I'm cooler than you.
” Those are the things confidenceisn't, okay, or aren't.
Confidence is not arrogance.
Arrogance means I'm better than you.
Those things mean “I'm betterthan you, I'm above you, “I'm higher than you, I'm worth more than you.
” Those things are arrogance.
Confidence literally meanseverything I get is from within.
Confidence means I'm my biggest hype man.
Confidence means you maynot compliment me today, and I'm okay with that.
I can go to sleep atnight before just fine.
Just think of today's videoas your personal pep talk, 'cause I'm really 'bout to go in, because I'm tired ofy'all waking up every day no feeling like your truest selves, and I know it because Isee comments from you guys.
Next I'm gonna highlight under my skin using the Nuban Beauty D'GLOW Highlighter.
The color that I use is Ecstasy.
This is so freaking pretty.
Like, it is the most beautifulhighlight on dark skin.
Now, we had to defineconfidence and what it is because there's a lot of people.
So as you can see, I'm justconfidently highlighting my cheekbone, because I deserve it.
Ooh yeah, it's kind of a lot.
It's gonna look really pretty once we throw on our foundation.
So the first tip that I wanna give about how to be confidence, if you are right, stand in it.
If you are wrong, stand in it.
I always respect people who, they believe in what theybelieve, and they don't hold back, and they don't stand down for nobody.
We're not talking about the toxic people.
We're talking about the people who, maybe the opinionis not the most popular, but they believe it, and they stand in it.
That's all that matters.
That is Confidence 101, you guys.
Also sometimes that can be very foolish.
But it's okay if you're confident, right? (Jackie laughs) – Jester, you have done it again! – Now I'm gonna use Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation, while I confidently blurthese pores real quick.
People who can literallyjust pick up the product with the sponge and blendright in, what's it like? Problematic, that's what you are.
I actually like to put thefoundation on my face first, 'cause then I can see where she goes, where she gon' end up, and where she's headed, and where she came from, more importantly.
When it comes to foundation, the number one thing that you always have to remember is that stuff comes from your self.
Nobody can boost confidence for you.
I mean, they can try, but itjust does not hit he same.
And what happens when that person's no longer in your life anymore? How long are those few words of wisdom that you're clinging ontoreally supposed to last? How long are they gonna last? This is my Morphe Setting Spray.
I like to set.
If you could just fly somewhere else.
For your brush, get yourfoundation to last longer, even though I'm not going anywhere.
But at least I'll be cute on the couch.
You have to rely on yourself 100%, because lemme tell you something.
What would you do if there wasno one there to root for you? What would you do? So there's a YouTuber.
Her name is Shallon Lester.
Some of her videos, Idon't really agree with.
Actually, a lot of her videos.
Different genre, verydifferent genre of content.
But she does a lot ofself-help type of content.
I remember watching a video about how she was basicallycomparing women like Rihanna.
Personally, I don't like to compare women.
It's not something that I subscribe to.
But I think she was just doing it for the sake of an analogy, not literally saying one'sbetter than the other.
I don't think that's whatshe was trying to say.
Shout-out to you, Shallon, if you watchin'.
Cool with me girl, you all right.
(Jackie laughs) So basically she did this video, and she was talking about this thing.
There's warm-blooded personalities, and then there'scold-blooded personalities.
And she used Kylie Jennerversus Rihanna as an example.
Sorry, not versus.
We're not comparing them.
She was basically saying how there's women who are like Rihanna who are cool whether ornot you say they're cool.
Like Rihanna is going to be cool with or without ourvalidation, a man's validation, Vogue's validation, afashion line's validation.
Rihanna is just that chick, whereas there are people, this is not to be degradingor anything like that.
There are people who, forexample, Kylie Jenner, she's very young.
She's also very impressionable.
You just get the vibe that she wakes up and everything that shedoes is literally dictated by how people respond and react to it.
So it's not cool unless peopletell her that it's cool.
Do you get what I'm saying? One is cold-blooded andone is warm-blooded.
I forget which one is which.
It was a genius personality.
I think Rihanna isconsidered warm-blooded, because she warms herself from within, whereas cold, you have to pop her in a warm temperature, a warm environment to get her to open up and be herself more.
I 100% identify with Rihanna because I say this to people all the time.
You don't really have to compliment me for me to feel good about myself.
Obviously you guys know I'm an influencer.
Whenever I get a reallynot-so-nice comment from someone, I might be like, “Girl, whydid you have to say that? “That was rude.
” Sometimes they'll clap backand they'll say something like, “Well, do you expect people “to say only nice things about you 24/7?” I'm gonna contour withmy CoverGirl concealer.
No, of course I don't expect that.
Let's talk about that for a second, because sometimes, I feellike people say mean things for the simple fact thatthey know the person that they're saying it tois highly complimented, and they just wanna be the oneperson to burst your bubble.
They just wanna be like, “You get enough compliments.
“I'm gonna say something toshake the table a little bit.
” – Ooh, wow.
– That's weird.
Get some help.
There are genuinely peoplewho think like that, and I know that because I'veseen theme comment that.
But anyway, what I was trying to say, with Kevyn Aucoinconcealer, they'll be like, “You can't just get compliments all day.
” I totally agree with that.
But at the same time, I don'task to be complimented either.
you know what I mean? You could just be like, commenting on my pictures like, “Oh, hope you had a good day, Jackie.
“Good to see you, girl.
“Hey, it's my birthday! “I got an A on my test.
” I don't know, you canjust make conversation, or just don't say nothing at all.
Contrary to what people believe, I think that they thinkthat we're just obsessed with being self-loathed all day.
One, I actually find that kind of toxic.
I personally don't wanna bearound people who are like that.
I don't even wanna date anybody, 'cause that gets old very fast.
You ever just been around aperson who overcompensates by overly complimenting you all the time? That's not fun either.
When people try to push this idea that because I'm in the public eye, and because I have a lot of followers, that all I accept is praiseand worship, absolutely not.
First of all, that's extremely corny for you to think that way.
I just definitely know thatyou don't have to be rude.
You don't have to tell methat you don't like something, because at the end of the day, I've already put the picture up.
(Jackie laughs) Or like, if you don't like my makeup, I can't change it in the picture.
I can't change it in the video.
Tomorrow it may look better.
The day after that, itmay look even worse! – What you gon' say about it though? What you doing about it? – Like, for real though, what you gon' say? Okay, you didn't like my lipstick.
Then what do I do? You don't like the way my face is shaped? What am I supposed to do? What do I say? Where do we go from there? If people don't like thestuff that I'm doing, I'm good, I got this, and I know that because I was not celebratedfor that long on YouTube.
This is my 11th year on the platform.
I've gone a very long time without having a ton of followers, getting a lot of praise.
If anything, it was the opposite.
People rocked with me, but those times where you open up the Instagram app and someone's saying thatyou're not attractive, or someone's comparing you to an animal or saying you look like a man or whatever, that very much so still happens too.
Guess what? Am I gonna sit there and dwell on the fact that somebody thinks I look like a man? – No.
– No, no, no, no, no, no.
You think I'm ugly? Okay, you ugly to somebody too.
(woman laughs) What we both gon' do, ugly? No one's technically uglyin the eyes of the Lord! When I was a kid, I wasn't that cute.
I think it's Gen Z are the really, really youngins right now.
Don't clock me in the comments, 'cause I know everybody'sgonna keep commenting this.
I feel like the girls now, you guys are all skippingthe awkward stage because you have YouTubeand you have tutorials and you pretty much have theblueprint being written for you on how to be cute at a younger age.
Beauty products have neverbeen more accessible, and I don't just mean by prices.
I also mean just by knowledge of how to apply them, how to use them.
Skincare routines are a dime a dozen now.
You can just get them anywhere, from anybody, literally, whereas back in the day, girl, you was just on your own.
I know I look like I got horns right now, but just stay with me.
So anyway, what I'm trying to say is that when I was young and not that cute and kind of ugly, my family didn't really put a ton of pressure onme to look a certain way.
Nobody in our family reallymade fun of the way we looked.
It was like, if you wasugly, you was just ugly.
That was it.
That's just the way God made you.
Ain't nothing we can do about it.
The great thing about thatis I basically learned how to express myselfand really be comfortable in looking a certainway and wearing things that weren't always that popular.
I learned how to kind of hone in on that from a very early age because nobody was clockin' me.
I could be weird.
I could wear lime green pleather outfits.
People probably said stuff, but I didn't pay it attention.
If you didn't say it to my face, then it didn't happen.
Next case, your honor.
(gavel bangs) So that individuality ofjust being a little ignorant was really what allowed myconfidence to really foster and to really flourish, because if you don't hear it, you don't know what you don't know.
So if I didn't know I looked crazy, then all right, I guessI don't look crazy then.
Keep goin' on about your day.
This is another CoverGirlconcealer, by the way.
This is in the shade Golden Caramel, and I contoured with Espresso.
And I told y'all I was correctingwith Kevyn Aucoin, right? I hope I did.
My mom is really artisticand really creative, so I would design clothes.
She would sew them for me.
We kind of had thislittle tag-team going on, and I got a lot of my creativity from her, which I'm really glad for, because she just let me be a kid.
There was no pressure to look a certain way, to be “wifeable.
” Even though yeah, I'msitting here and I'm saying, “Oh, confidence comes fromwithin, to a certain extent, compliments are okay from other people.
It's okay to be validatedthrough other people.
It is needed to a certain extent, but what I'm saying isyou shouldn't rely on it.
I'm definitely super, supergrateful that my family and my parents specifically didn't put a ton of society's pressureson me as a young black girl, because that very much socould have been my story.
I remember growing up, this is something that I don't really talkabout, but when I was younger, a lot of people in the black community talk about the colorism that happens against girls who are light-skinned or the girls who are mixed, and it's always like, “Oh, the dark-skinnedgirls would make fun of me, “because I wasn't black enough, “or because I was prettierthan them and blah, blah.
” You know that convo, like, oh.
But when I was a kid, I actually had the opposite experience.
My school life, I remembergrowing up with a group of girls, because when I was in elementary school, I went to a white school.
I grew up in a Latin neighborhood, okay, so I grew up around Mexicansand El Salvadorians.
The school that I went to, there weren't that many black people, but the few black people that were there were either biracial or like, mixed, or were not mixed but racially ambiguous.
Basically, I was the onlylike, unambiguous black girl for a lot of my childhood growing up.
But they always made me feellike I wasn't the cool girl 'cause I wasn't mixed.
I didn't have a group ofgirls that uplifted me for being who I was, who really accepted me.
I grew up being literally, when I say “the ugly kid, ” I was not cute, not because I was black, but like, I just wasn't cute.
Then I get to school, and these girls are like, “Your hair's not long? (Jackie groans) “Oh my God, you're not biracial?” (Jackie groans) I had to work around that.
It wasn't always fun, butmy mom always taught me, “You're beautiful regardless.
” And I knew she felt ittoo, because I remember when they would go to the PTAmeetings and stuff like that, I remember my momma used to roll her eyes at some of the thingsthe mommas would say, because if their kids have that mindset, then please believe theparents thought that too.
Child, it was just a lot.
This is my fan, by the way.
I let my concealers dry down.
Shout-out to the parents who really just let their children bekids, you know what I mean? Let that be a lesson to peoplewho are raising kids now.
A lot of your children'sconfidence and social skills are gonna be developed now.
I feel like the ages five through 10, you better love on them, tellthem words of affirmation, and really make them feel accepted, because that's the time to do it.
So obviously, a lot of whatI grew up experiencing, such as being different ornot needing outside validation to really hype myself up has kind of translated into my adult life.
I very much so adapted thisidea that if I didn't ask you, then it's really not my business.
If I ask you, that's very different.
But when it comes to things that may not be the mostuplifting or the most kind, maybe you wanted to tell methat my hair was ugly today.
If I didn't ask you, then shut up, okay? Just shut up! Just shut up, shut up.
♪ Just stop, shut up ♪ ♪ Just shut up, shut up ♪ ♪ Just stop ♪ ♪ Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa ♪ My “shut the hell up” game gets even stronger now that I'm in my 30s.
Can we also talk about howconfidence also comes with age? It's just something thatnaturally, you grow into.
So if you are, I don'tknow, like, 17, girl, and you're not reallyfeeling it yet, it's okay.
In fact, it's normal! I encourage it.
Nobody wants to be theperson who peaked at 16.
No shade! Honestly, give yourselfyears to grow into that.
You don't just like, I wasn'tthis way when I was younger.
I knew I was ugly.
I knew my lane.
(Jackie laughs) But as I got older, I definitely came togrow more into myself, because first of all, life taught me, yeah, yeah, you good, you good, girl.
You doing all right.
That was just something thatcame with my experiences, growth, seeing other people make mistakes that maybe I dodged, and like, “Oh, now I know I made the right move.
” 'Cause this video, I'm not necessarily justtalking about confidence as how you look.
I'm talking about confidencelike, as it relates to work, confidence in your professionallife, career goals.
My favorite quote is definitely “Learn how to not take unsolicitedopinions too personal, ” because lemme tell you something.
People love spilling theirword vomit right onto your lap, even when you didn't even ask for it.
The difference betweenyour opinion and pizza is I asked for pizza.
I didn't ask you what youthought of the shape of my butt.
– Double cheeked up ona Thursday afternoon.
– I didn't ask you ifyou liked my titties.
(Idris coughs)- What? – I didn't ask you that.
Now, why the hell didit take me 20 minutes to figure out this side ofmy contour was unblended? Why y'all ain't tell me? I'm gonna bronze.
This is my Fenty bronzer in Coco Naughty.
Remember, sis, you inspire people who pretend to not even see you.
I anything you to remember that.
Write it down.
Put it in your back pocketand save it for a rainy day.
Just 'cause peoplearen't say nothing to you or to your face, itdoesn't necessarily mean that they're not checking for you, and they're not inspired.
This is my Dermablend powderin the color Warm Saffron.
If that's not a confidence booster, I honestly don't know what the hell is.
Now I'm bronzing, for real, for real.
One thing that my momtaught me when I was younger is that if you wake up every day, even when you're not in the mood, even when you're irritated as hell, even when you are just so irritated, even when you just don't even feel cute, you gotta break out whatever.
Whatever you're going through, wake up every single morning, and as soon as you hitthat bathroom mirror, just look at yourself and smile.
You ain't gotta say nothing.
You ain't have to have the best smile.
Just smile! It is what it is.
Whatever you're dealt with, just look in the mirror and smile.
Sometimes honestly that initself is a quick mood booster and can instantly make you feel like, “Wow, whatever is in store for me today, “I'm ready, I got this.
” That right there is alittle bit of confidence.
Something that I also want to stress is do not, under anycircumstances, ever, ever, do you hear me, don't everentertain negative self-talk.
(woman claps) No.
– Uh-uh, cut it out.
Cut that right the hell out.
If it means I sucked at that, I mean, that might notbe negative self-talk.
That might be reality.
But that's a little different.
If that's a test, Imean, numbers don't lie.
Negative self-talk means, “I don't have thequalifications for this job, ” or “Why would a guy date someone like me, ” or even something like, “I'm not good enough, “I'm not pretty enough, I'm not thin enough.
” (Jackie groans)X all that.
Even if those things are true, okay, even if you really feellike those things are true, don't say them! Don't say them out loud! Because if it's nottrue, it just became true the moment you verbalized it.
You put it out there.
Okay, stop that.
Don't be doing that.
Sometimes you canverbally psych yourself up just before you even had a chance.
Like, you never evengave yourself a chance.
Do you understand how powerful that is? I would definitely not behere today if I entertained a lot of the negativeself-thoughts that I had.
I wasn't always thisbooming, walking, talking advertisement for howto live your best life.
No, I don't always have nice things.
I wasn't always that great atmakeup, and I wasn't always, like I said earlier, wasn't always that cute.
So I learned how to reallyjust develop these things with or without them actually being true.
That is really what willstand the test of time, is when you build that stuff internally and when you build it yourself, nobody can take it from you.
If you got it from a guy, ifyou got it from an old boss, if you got it from anex-friend who, you know, maybe is not in your life anymore, once those things are gone, you really have to haveit within yourself.
The key thing is you haveto actually believe it for it to stick.
I'm even gonna go asfar as to say sometimes it's best to just not even tell anyone.
For example, if you're thinking about starting a new business, or if you're thinkingabout going back to school, or if you're thinkingabout joining the military, maybe these are things that people probably wouldeither try to talk you out of or wouldn't believe in youenough to encourage you to do it.
Then I just would not tell people.
I would just do it first.
I'm queen of literallyaccomplishing something and then people finding out that I did it when I accomplished it.
I don't like telling people, “I'm thinking about doing this.
“I'm thinking about doing that, ” because you know what that does? Lemme tell you what that does.
It gives other people theopportunity to talk you out of it.
Confidence gone, before you even started.
Why the hell would I do that? No.
I got this.
I'll do this on my own.
If I fail, so what? I learned something, didn't I? When have you ever not learnedsomething from a failure? I've learned a lot fromfailing at certain things, a ton of things.
So you gain something from it.
Do you get what I'm saying? Just to piggyback off of what I was saying about not entertaining negative self-talk, also try your hardest torefrain from entertaining negative self-talk whenother people are doing it.
You know that quote in MeanGirls when all of the girls are basically going around incircles and saying something really self-deprecating about each other, and then it's kind oflike, “Okay, your turn now.
” Don't be doing that.
If anything, tell your girlfriends, “Girl, chill, relax.
” Change the subject, becausethat stuff, like it or not, even though it may be lightheartedand cute in the long run, you really are saying it'cause you believe it.
Why would you wanna believethat about yourself? On the opposite, try to practice positive words of affirmation.
Practice telling yourself, “Yes, I can, “yes, I did, it's already mine.
” Truly, nobody has time toentertain negative self-talk, because guess what, ifyou really didn't believe you had what it takes, then why would you be goingafter that in the first place? You applied, girl, 'cause youknow you've got what it takes.
Deep down, you do, and you know that the worldneeds to be exposed to it too.
So let them.
Let them love some you too! So we're gonna take aquick break to do the eyes.
It's really hard to pump y'allup with confidence boosters while I blend, so I'm justgonna really quickly use a little bit of my Maybelline foundation and just kind of go over my eyelids to just even them out a little bit.
This is just our shadow primer today, but I'm not actually usingjust this as shadow primer.
I'm also gonna use a littlebit of the ABH eye primer.
This eye primer is solight that it performs so much better when you mix itin with a complexion product that your concealer, your foundation.
It just looks way better and way more flattering on the skin tone.
Hopefully this video isn'ttoo all over the place, but like, I just want youguys to really live out and see your true potential, and a lot of the things that I know now I wish I knew when I was like, 21.
Even at the age of 25, there were certain thingsthat I was certain about.
I knew I was gonna be successful.
I just knew.
I didn't know how, but I just knew.
When I was a teenager, I didn't really have all that positivity.
I wasn't surrounded with abunch of people rooting for me and telling me to live out myown potential all the time.
They most certainlyweren't calling me ugly.
No, it was like, “You areactually supposed to be a doctor.
That's not really a confidence booster, when that's not your end goal in life.
I'm late on the bandwagon.
Wait, is this my first time using this? Oh my God, I think it might be.
This is from the ABH Norvina collection.
I guess this is itsown standout brand now.
Yeah, I'm gonna take this palette.
It's called the Pro Pigment Vol.
Sounds real cute, Felicia.
I'm gonna take D1.
I like how these are labeled too.
This is D1, this color right here.
It's kind of orange-y.
Today's look will beorange and yellow, perhaps.
I'm gonna take a padin my hand, not a pad.
A foofy la la poof, yeah, whatever.
I'm gonna put this under myeye to catch any fallout, and I'm gonna take D1.
Okay, that's really orange, oh my God.
I wanted this to look a littlebit more like my skin tone, but that's okay.
D1, we gon' fit rightinto the living room, AKA, the crease, honey.
It's got just enough orangeto not be too standout-ish.
It actually looks reallygood on my skin tone.
I'm gonna really buffthis out and extend her, and I'm gonna build up.
I'm not gonna load on my brushand go right in and blend.
I'm building as I go up.
You want it to graduallyget heavier and heavier.
We need brown liner, darkbrown liner, to be specific, and I'm gonna start tracingthe shape of my eyes.
It's not gon' be neat, child.
Don't be judgin' me, girl.
Also, I'm gonna take, oh, you know what, I wanna do that after Iblend out my lid color, but yeah, we're gon' tracethe shape of our eyes using this brown pencil, and if it's not perfect, that's okay.
It's easier to do this when you're followingyour natural eye shape, because then you know that it's even, if you're following your actual eye shape.
I thought there was a dark mattebrown in this palette, but, ♪ Wow, I was wrong ♪ So I grabbed my own palette, and I'm just gonna use Credit, because you can never do no wrong.
Oh, here it is, this thing right here.
(makeup products rattling) We need something, that's too precise.
(makeup products rattling) Maybe this one.
I'ma take this Morphe M419.
419, girl? What in the scammer is going on? M419, honey, is gonna take us home, girl.
We're just gonna use this andjust trace right over that.
Yes, I know this is not perfect, and I'm intensifying thebrown eyeliner that we made by using Credit.
I'm trying to really smokethis out and blend this out.
Now, the next thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take E2 fromthis palette here, down here.
She looks a lot lighter oncamera than she actually is.
I just want my brush to kiss it, boop.
Just one quick poke in there, okay? Y'all know what I meant.
I'm gonna go right overwhere we applied our brown, and I'm gonna start blendingher over back and forth, ♪ Back, back ♪ ♪ Forth and forth ♪ And I'm gonna start blendingback, back, forth, and forth to intensify.
Please ignore this.
I only put that therebecause I wanted to see where I need to stop this top line.
I'm actually gonna redo that.
Just ignore that.
Oh, yes, Miss E2.
We're gonna use this to justblend out this brown, honey.
We need more primer for our lid.
We're gonna etch all that off.
I wanna thin out this lineas much as I possibly can, thin her own meaning cover her up.
And then I'ma do the same on this side! (electronic hip hop music) Just one more quick round of liner, I am perfectionist.
Close that gap, close that gap! And if you think for a second I'm not wearing eyeliner, you're wrong.
Leave, see yourself out.
For my lid color, Iwanna do, I'm gonna bold.
I'm going for blood today.
This is E3.
It's like a neon.
Change of plans, we're doing yellow.
So we're gonna do E4.
It's a matte yellow.
I'm going to plop thatonto my lid carefully.
(Jackie laughs)Wow, this is yellow! Wowee Maui.
This is a really goodquality yellow, though, girl.
She not blotchy at all, honey.
Get out of my video! And can we all collectivelyagree that black women in yellow makes a buttload, a manual, a manuscript of points! I'm gonna take a liquid liner.
This is brown.
You can use black if you'd like.
It's totally up to you.
I'm just gonna use this toreinforce that top last line.
I also want to trace theinner tear duct of my energy.
We need beige liner on our water line.
This is from After Make Up For Ever in the shade Infinite Sand.
It's not actually white.
Sorry, guys, it's off-white, it's beige.
We need a smidge of brownalong our bottom lash line.
I'm going back to Credit from my palette, and I'm just going to, starting on the outer-ish area, I'm gonna start building upa little bit of that brown.
But we're not gonna gotoo heavy-handed, girl.
Just keep it light and keep it cute.
And also, don't connect.
You don't wanna bring it too far in, 'cause I kind of want thisto have its own moment.
Bam, I threw on a lash.
This is Lilly Lash So Extra.
Is this So Extra Miami? Yeah, this is So Extra Miami.
Do a little dollop of mascara.
I don't know who y'all think I am, but I'm somebody else today.
Okay, we're pretty much done, And we just gotta throwon a lip, and we Gucci.
Oh, and blush.
Of course, how could I forget about blush? This is Sweet Brown from Marena Beaute.
We're just gonna kiss thecheeks, kiss the cheeks.
This is perfect, Christ's it's gonna goreally well with the yellow.
But as we blend this, thelast thing I wanna say is, please don't compareyourself to somebody else.
Don't compare yourselfto anybody else, period.
Why would you even wanna besomebody else but yourself? You are you.
That is your power.
I remember when I wasfirst growing my channel.
I thought I had to do whateverybody else was doing.
I thought I had to be like somebody else.
I thought I had to followsomeone else's formula, someone else's path, someoneelse's swag, whatever.
I was doing everything but being myself, and that's why, whenpeople watch my old videos, they're like, “Oh myGod, you changed so much.
“You're so different now.
” And I'm like, “No, I'm the same.
” I've always been this weirdand eclectic and out there.
I just didn't know thatit would be embraced.
If I had really beenputting my personality out there like that, I'd probably be a lotfurther than where I am now, which is fine that I'm not, but truly, you are you, and that is your power.
That is a power.
Being you is your power.
Take advantage of it.
Hone in on it.
Like I said, you inspire people who pretend to not even see you, okay? Know that.
Let's finish it off withsome Morphe Setting Spray.
I don't know what exactly I'm setting 'cause I'm not going anywhere, but we're gonna do it anyway, just to go through the motions.
(heavenly synth music) And then last, we're gonnafinish off with a beautiful, chocolate-y gloss lip.
First I'm gonna line my lipswith Pitch from ColourPop.
I don't think they makethis liner anymore.
I feel like somebodycommented this on my video.
I don't think this liner is, I think this is gone, girl.
I think she gone.
I think she retired.
But you don't have to use this.
It's just a really darkcool tone brown liner.
This is Aphrodisiac lipstick.
It's from the new ArtistCouture Nude Collection.
(Jackie inhales deeply)They smell so freaking good.
I love that we got a Brown Angel.
Thank you for giving us a dark brown.
Ooh, oh, that's so pretty.
That's a really nice shade of brown, ooh.
I didn't know we had thatmuch of a banger on our hands, but now I know though.
Oh, and the formula, that was super juicy and super hydrating.
Yes, we're still gonna put a gloss on top.
I just wanna overlinemy lips just a teensers.
Oh my God, I was looking through my kit, and I was just about to say, “It's so weird that I don'thave a dark brown lip gloss, ” 'cause I really don't, and then I really lookedand looked and looked, and then I found this one.
This is from Bearded Beauty Cosmetics.
One of my followers actuallyDM'd me on Instagram, like, a couple months ago and was like, “I have a line of makeup, “and I'm just getting off the ground.
“I wanna send it to you.
” So shout-out to my babyfor sending these to me.
This was really sweet of you.
This is a black-ownedbrand, a male-owned brand.
A beauty boy started this brand, and he's literally a guy who wears makeup.
I love when people express themselves in whatever form they are.
Sometimes the bearded boys don't get too much love on social media, so I'm really proud of I'mfor starting this brand, and this is literallythe only dark brown gloss that I had in my kit! So again, thank you, boo, for sending me these.
And of course, just likeall the other products, I'll link them down below.
The shade that I'mwearing is, what is this? Does this have a name? Oh my God, there's no name.
There's no name, but I'mpretty sure it's probably the only dark brown gloss, and these smell so good.
I actually did a little swatchstory when I first got these on my Insta stories a couple months ago, and they're super butteryand very, very hydrating.
I really wanted the lip tobe just like mirror shine.
This smells so freaking good.
You saw the way my nostril flared, right? (Jackie moans) I could just layer this on and on and on.
But I'm done though.
I really hope that youguys enjoyed this video.
I know it might have been a little chatty, a little bit all over the place, but I really enjoyedtalking about confidence.
I fee like I kind of havereally grown into myself, into my 30s, into the newness that is me.
I feel like I've literallylived seven lives.
I'm a divorcee, I'm a veteran.
I've live in differentcountries and different states.
It's a lot.
Some people meet me, and they're like, “You're 32? “The way that you describethe stuff you've been through, “I would have thoughtyou were in your 40s, ” and I'm like, “Yeah, I know.
” So I know a thing or two about confidence.
Just a little something.
Okay, guys, I really hopeyou enjoyed today's video.
I mean, I may not be the poster child on how to be the most confident.
I have my moments, don't get me wrong.
We all do.
I'm only human.
But I think I know a thingor two about a thing or two.
It's funny, because when people hear all the stuff that I've been through, I've been previously married, divorced, lived in different countries, I'm also a veteran, they are like, “You're only 32? “I would assume aftergoing through all that, “you were in your 40s.
” I mean, I don't look it, though, but that's just what people say.
I truly feel like I've livedenough and I know enough to know that, you knowwhat, stuff happens.
You bounce back.
You're not gonna be everyone'scup of tea, and that's okay.
I'm living poof of that.
Life goes on after notbeing someone's cup of tea.
And like, who cares? You should be drinking kombucha anyway.
Okay, that as really corny and not funny.
Anyway, thank you guys forhanging out in today's video.
I really hope you guys enjoyedthe makeup look, the shatter.
If you recreate this look, Iwould love to see you tag me.
Tag me on Twitter if you enjoy the video.
And I really like them you guys make cut-downs of my videos, by the way.
Whenever you take little quotable moments and you tweet them to me, I always retweet them, 'cause they almost alwayspop off and go viral.
So shout-out to everybody who does that.
But in the meantime, if you're not all thattechnologically savvy, you could just watch another video.
I mean, I'm putting it right here.
Where else you gon' go? Exactly.
You might as well watch another video.
