Jaclyn Hill is a make-up artist who became famous through the social media platform YouTube. The YouTube personality has been active on the platform since 2011 and has become very popular with her make-up tutorial videos, which are seen by her more than 5.3 million subscribers who constantly follow her channel. To date, Jaclyn has worked with several cosmetics brands, including BECCA Cosmetics and Morphe Cosmetics.
Jaclyn Hill’s Biography (Age)
Jaclyn Hill was born on July 20, 1990, as Jaclyn Roxanne Eilers. Her place of birth is not precisely stated, but she grew up in the town of Mineral in Illinois. It is believed that she was also born there as the daughter of her parents – James and Robin Eilers – and grew up in a small family with her two older siblings Nicholas (brother) and Rachel (sister). The family moved to Florida when Jaclyn was eight years old. Her father worked as a farmer on her family’s farm, while her mother currently serves as a manager.
Growing up in the family was a really hard time for Jaclyn, as her father was partially incapacitated by an accident he had. His condition put so much strain on the entire family and put a strain on her parents’ marriage from which she never recovered as they went through an ugly divorce in 2012 and Jaclyn and her mother became estranged from their father.
Jaclyn studied photography at a college in Sarasota, Florida, for her college education, but was home-schooled for her elementary education, which did enough to enroll her in college.
Jaclyn Hill is both a make-up artist (a career for which she is widely known) and a YouTube personality. After college, Hill never waited for a job but started working as a freelance make-up artist. She started in her neighborhood and then spread to the surrounding areas in Tampa, Florida before briefly working in a MAC Cosmetics business. In 2011, she also set up a YouTube channel where she discussed everything to do with makeup and published instructional and educational videos, and soon became popular on the social media platform.
In 2015 she had two make-up collaborations. The first was with BECCA, an Australian cosmetics brand that was relatively unknown until her work with Jaclyn Hill. They launched a product – a highlighter – called “Champagne Pop”, which sold very well in the market, selling over 25,000 units within the first 20 minutes of the product’s release. It also broke several sales records.
Her second collaboration took place later that year when she joined forces with Morphe Cosmetics to launch a beauty range of her favorite Morphe eye shadow products. She also worked with Morphe Cosmetics again in 2016 to launch a second eyeshadow range under the name Jaclyn Hill Palette, which was also a great success. In fact, her collaboration with BECCA generated sales of $10.7 million, while the collaboration with Morphe generated EMV sales of $12.2 million.
In the summer of 2017, she released a video that she shot with reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who is also the wife of rapper and hip-hop artist Kanye West. The video, entitled Get Ready with Me & Kim Kardashian, became her most-watched video with over 10 million viewers.
Net Worth – How Much is She Worth?
After striving to make her career what it is today – with her YouTube channel with over 5 million subscribers – Jaclyn Hill could be called another success story. However, finding out what her net worth actually remains a Herculean task, as several websites seem to have different ideas about what she believes the professional make-up artist is worth. While some put her net worth at $1.5 million, others are more generous and estimate her net worth at $6 million.
Is Jaclyn Hill Married? Husband, Divorce
Jaclyn Hill, née Jaclyn Eilers, married her high school sweetheart Jon Hill on August 29, 2009. Jaclyn was 19 years old at the time, while her crush was 21 years old. The two tied the knot of marriage and lived together for nine years in a seemingly blissful love affair if one can take their pictures in social media as a reference point. But on May 16, 2018, the once blissful marriage was dissolved by divorce.
Her current ex-husband, Jon Hill, is a drummer and also a YouTube personality, but Jaclyn seems to have already distanced himself from him. She posted the picture of her supposed new admirer, which sent the Internet into a frenzy and tried to find out who he was. It turned out that a secret admirer is a man from Tampa whose first name is Farnum.
Hill revealed in her videos that she was in an abusive relationship that lasted three and a half years before she met her ex-husband Jon. She says he made her lose herself and always tried to make him happy, even at the expense of her own happiness.
