Jaclyn Hill’s Biography (Age)
Jaclyn Hill was born Jaclyn Roxanne Eilers on the 20th of July 1990. Her place of birth is not detailed but she grew up in the town called Mineral in the US state of Illinois. It is presumed she was born there too to her parents – James and Robin Eilers – and was raised 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 their family farm while her mother serves presently as her manager.
Growing up around the family was really a tough one for Jaclyn because her father was partially incapacitated as a result of an accident he had. His condition piled so much stress on the entire family and put a strain on her parents’ marriage which it never recovered from as they went through an ugly divorce in 2012 leaving Jaclyn and her mother estranged from her father.
Jaclyn studied photography at a college in Sarasota, Florida for her tertiary education but was tutored at home for her grade school education which did enough to get her enrolled into college.
Jaclyn Hill doubles as a make-up artist (a career for which she is widely known) and also a YouTube personality. Coming out of college, Hill never waited to get employed on a job but began to work as a freelance make-up artist. She began in her neighborhood and then spread to the surrounding areas in Tampa, Florida before she worked briefly with a MAC Cosmetics store. She also created a YouTube channel in 2011 where she would discuss all things make-up and post instructional and tutorial videos and soon she became popular on the social media platform.
In 2015, she had two make-up collaborations. First was with BECCA, an Australian cosmetics brand which was relatively unknown at the time until their work with Jaclyn Hill. They would launch a product – a highlighter – named “Champagne Pop” which did very well in the market, selling over 25,000 units just within the first 20 minutes of the product’s release. It still went on to break several sales records.
Her second collaboration happened later in the same year when she networked with Morphe Cosmetics to release a beauty palette which contained her favorite Morphe eyeshadow products. Furthermore, she collaborated with Morphe again in 2016 for a second eyeshadow palette which was branded the Jaclyn Hill Palette which was also a huge success. In fact, her collaboration with BECCA generated sales to the tune of $10.7 million while the one with Morphe recorded $12.2 million in sales via EMVs.
In the summer of 2017, she posted a video she made with reality TV star Kim Kardashian who is also the wife of rapper and hip-hop artist Kanye West. The video which was titled Get Ready with Me & Kim Kardashian became her most viewed video with over 10 million views.
Net Worth – How Much is She Worth?
Having strived to build her career into what it has become today – with her YouTube channel boasting of over 5 million subscribers, Jaclyn Hill could be described as another success story. However, a search for what her net worth actually is remains a herculean task as several sites seem to have different ideas of what they feel 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 to be $6 million.
Is Jaclyn Hill Married? Husband, Divorce
Jaclyn Hill, who was born Jaclyn Eilers got married to her high school sweetheart, Jon Hill on August 29, 2009. Jaclyn was 19 at the time while her heartthrob was 21. The two tied the knot and lived together for nine years in what seemed like a blissful love relationship if their pictures on the social media were anything to go by. However, on May 16, 2018, the once blissful marriage union was dissolved in a divorce.
Her now ex-husband, Jon Hill is a drummer and also a YouTube personality but Jaclyn seems to have moved on from him already. She posted the picture of her supposed new beau which sent the internet into a frenzy, trying to find out who he was. It turns out that the secret beau is a Tampa-based man whose first name is given as Farnum.
