    The Jaclyn Hill Ride or Die Makeup Tag

    Jaclyn Hill Ride or Die Makeup Tag
    Jaclyn Hill has pretty much been taking Youtube and the beauty world by storm, and recently she did a video devoted to her “ride or die” makeup products that she always falls back to, or never wants to be without. My lovely blogger friend Kate {KateLovesMakeup} posted hers, and tagged me to do mine, so here are the products that I reach for when all else fails!
