This is GORGEOUS, I love this look. OMG I am going to be a lady bug for halloween and this would really compliment it ha ha, retro lady a la bug! :P

Wow this is so beautiful and elegant. I bet you could get away with wearing it not just for a halloween party.

I’ve done this with fishnets before but I never thought to do it with lace. It is very cool though!

Hi Marlena,

I love your tutorilas, it’s really helpful, i’m from algeria and the only problem i’m having is that i can’t find the products that you’re using, i can’t have the same results with my products, i have a lot of skin problems: redness, imperfections, and the colour of my skin is not uniform, everytime i use a foundation, i look like a cake and it doesn’t look natural at all

anyway, thanks a lot for everyday, geat job M, we love it !!

hi marlena
i am mona and i wonder full when i see your web site.i have a question about my skin.but i dont know how say to you.plese help that i can speak with you.thank you

HI, MARLENA

i just want to say how amazing your ideas are. the way you explain every-
thing in detail is very helpful. please countinue with the toutorials there wonderful. and if you can kindly tell us were we can find ben nye cosmetics in the qatar it would beh even more helpful. thanks

I was so glad to see your concealer tip for the lips! I have been doing that for more than 15 years but never realized anybody else did…especially a professional makeup artist!

Thank you for showing me how to do this! My friend was in a fashion show where they used this! Where did you first hear about it? I think it looks great :) Thank you for taking the time to make all these videos! Happy new year :)

wow I would have never thought of the lace thats amazing but i have to say it might be easyer to hold the lace tight after you pin it just put on a strechy head band over it and it should hold it in place while you work. thanks again this look is amazing and allot of fun
ta ta for now

i used this look for a masquerade ball at a night club, it turned out beautifully! i don’t think i’ve ever gotten that many compliments on a look before, thanks marlena!

hi,

can you help me?? i use ardells false lashes on my clients all of the time, but when using the glitter one’s i find that the corners pop off (due to the thickness of the glitter??) do you have this problem?? any ideas to stop this happening? many thanks
