Be ‘Ready to Win’ with this look from Mary Kay #MKNovela #ad

MKOne thing that is always true when it comes to novelas (soap operas) is that the women’s make up is always flawless.  Mary Kay is the official sponsor of the novela, Arranque de Pasión.  They have provided me with the makeup necessary to recreate the look of Ela (Kate Del Castillo).  Ela believes that you should always look good and be ready to win in life and love.  This character look is definitely a winner!  It is so much me.  Highlights your features well, but gives a natural look.


Here’s how I created the look:

  1. Used Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Beach Blonde across my eye lid. 
  2. Put Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Hazelnut in the crease of my eye.
  3. Blended the Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Cinnabar in the outer corners of eyes.
  4. Lined top and bottoms of eye lids with Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Coal, slightly smudging on the bottom.
  5. Went over my brows with the Hazelnut color used on the crease of eyes.
  6. To keep brows in place, I used the Mary Kay® Brow Gel.
  7. Coated lashes twice with Mary Kay® Lash Love™ Waterproof Mascara in I ©Black.
  8. For cheeks I brushed on the Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream.
  9. The lips are what really stand out in this look.  I first lined them with Mary Kay® Lip Liner in Spiced Tea.
  10. To finish the look I used Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss inCafé Au Lait.

In addition to the colors, I used:

I have loved Mary Kay for many years, but hadn’t used it in quite some time.  As soon as the brush hit my eye lids, I remembered why I loved it so much.  The shadows go on smooth and give the perfect amount of coverage.

Riddled with love triangles and plot twists, Ela struggles through the challenges of ambition, career, loyalty and love. Will Ela be at the finish line alone or will true love be her reward?
