Jacquelyn Lonje Olayiwola Oyeshola Bolayemi Aina, simply known as Jackie Aina, is a beauty YouTuber who has been making waves in the makeup industry for years. From studying for becoming a doctor to then serving in the military, Jackie found her calling as a makeup artist and has never looked back since then. She has been seen partnering with brands like Sephora, e.l.f. Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills. Sigma Beauty, and Too Faced.
Jackie was born in Los Angeles, California on 4 August 1987. She belongs to a Nigerian lineage through her parents. Following high school, Jackie planned on becoming a doctor and joined college to pursue her ambition. During her 3rd year in college, she ended up joining the United State Army Reserve. In 2009, one year into her military service, Jackie started uploading videos on her YouTube channel to cope with her then ongoing struggles. Her content was all about makeup and skincare, which she found she had a knack for during her service. The oldest upload on her channel is titled “Electric Purple Smokey Eye”. The video has 92k views at present.
Jackie was quickly noticed by the makeup industry and she earned herself a job at the MAC Cosmetics. According to Jackie, people of color were massively under-represented in the makeup industry, which lacked inclusivity. She always spoke out against popular cosmetic brands with shades that only catered to a limited range of skin colors. She has been highly vocal about the matter on her YouTube channel and has spread awareness through her videos. Her advocacy for diversity and inclusivity has led to multiple collaborations and partnerships with cosmetic companies.
Jackie’s first major collaboration came in 2016 when she came together with e.l.f. Cosmetics to create a unique eye shadow palette. The palette was a hit and sold out within a short time. The next year, she released a set of custom brushes through Sigma Beauty. She followed it by launching two highlighters in a partnership with Artist Couture.
In 2018, Jackie criticized the company Too Faced for not having a diverse range of shades. The company took the criticism well and invited her for a collaboration that saw them expanding their range. Too Faced added 11 new shades and Jackie came up with 9 of them. Jackie showed interest in having a cosmetic line of her own in 2019 and launched an eyeshadow palette with Anastasia Beverly Hills later that year. In 2020, she announced the launch of Forvr Mood, a home goods line of her own. The line consists of fragrances, skincare, and candles as of today.
Jackie has been regularly uploading and streaming on her YouTube channel since her first upload in 2009. Today, her channel has over 3.57 million subscribers. Her channel has garnered more than 389 million total views over the years. Her most-watched video on the channel remains the 2018 upload of Jackie and fellow YouTuber Alissa reacting to the Tarte Shape Tape Foundation. This video has been watched more than 5.3 million times and counting.
