So beautiful!
I’ve been hoping to find a pink look that wouldn’t make my eyes look as though they’ve been hit with pink eye, or something. Hahaha
But this is absolutely gorgeous, perfect for a night out, I’m such a fan of your work!

Wow I love it!!! I’m a pink junkie as well ;-)
You’re getting more and more gorgeous!!!

Hi Marlena,

Do you have a recommendation for this color Ben Nye Azalea Pigment in an NYX eyeshadow?

Thanks,
Glenda

Very pretty! I generally don’t like pink eye shadow on myself..I usually look like I’m sick or something! I have bluish/green eyes… What vibrant color do you recommend in place of the pink to make my eye color stand out?

Hi Marlena,
Its me Sabrina from Houston….Great look!! Looks gorgeous on you! I just can’t pull the pinks off.. What can I use for brown eyes.. Have a Happy Happy New Year!!! Take Care!! Muah!!!

XOXO

hi marlena! im in love with your website!
i was just wondering if you could do more videos for people with glasses?
and i wanted to let you know that if you have a costco near by that they have a wonderful brush set that i have fell in love with, Costco Kirkland Signature Brush Set 2009, its amazing and theres reviews on it on youtube and it was only $20 so its great for the price, and it has most of the brushes you use in your videos!!

I have heard that brush set rocks but I have yet to get my hands on it. I’m kind of trying to limit my spending on makeup and make up related products, it’s too addicting!

Hey Marlena, I was wondering why do you still buy Urban Decay eyeliners? Cuz in several tutorials you said Prestige eyeliners was the exact same thing but a fraction of the price. Just wondering :)

Hi Marlena! I love this look, I even recommend it to my readers. It’s really nice look for parties and not New Years Eve only. I love the combination of pink and black :) It’s gorgeous

Hey,

I have a question but it is not related to this video… I am looking for a good face primer, and i had a look at your reviews on primers. However, the MAC’s Prep + Prime is not on there, so i was wondering what you thought about it and whether it is good.

Thanks a bunch!!!

Dimpal

marlena, love this look! do you think that this look could be done with dupes on the 88 palette and still look as amazing?

Marlena,

I just want to say that I found your website when I was searching youtube for Halloween makeup and it is by far the best! I happen to be a huge “makeup geek” myself, I have more makeup then I do clothes I think haha! All my girlfriends usually come to me when they need their makeup done or when we go out and recently I’ve gotten most of my ideas from your videos. So I just want to say thank you very much!! Also, I love this look for New Years and I will definately be trying it out!

Hey. I have a question, have you ever used the Lise Watier makeup? I saw one called Les Plumes (i think thats what its called). I wondered if you could look into it. I wanted to see what it looks like when professionally done. I have a couple of Lise Watiers make up but i cant apply it has nice as you. thanks so much.

Hi Marlena,

I would you know which makeup company would have the best dupe for Mac’s Magic Mirth “sorceress” color: Hold MY Gaze?

This look looks absolutely stunning. I love it! I would love to know which MAC lipstick is the closest to the pink on yours lips? I love MAC lipsticks and this colour looks gorgeous and would like it for myself! xx

Hello Beautiful!!! MArlena, You are my favorite MakeArtist… You are so sweet!!!! I Love you so much!!! I hope this year you can come to Boston for do Makeup Seminar!!!
XOXOXO

hey! I recently found your website and its really cool!
I was wondering.. i have compact eyeshadows and they last a few minutes haha is it better to use creamy shadows? i supose they last a bit more as you use them but i would like your advice.
another thing, all my shadows are glyttery but i usually use only one color, i hope i dont look too much bright!
kisses from Barcelona!
u r a great artist!

I just wanted to say thank you for all the tips you post. Being able to watch you apply your makeup while I give it a try has really helped me.. And my husband has been enjoying all the new looks you have helped me come up with.

Hi Marlena,

I am going to try this look tomorrow for New Years! Your tutorials are so helpful especially when I am stuck in a rut with my makeup looks!

Happy 2010!

Happy New Year Marlena! First thing I thought when I woke up this morning was, “How am I going to do my make-up tonight?” And of course you already took care of that decision for me :)! I just wanted to let you know that you have changed the way I get ready and I am so grateful for your passion and creativity….

May All Your New Year Wishes Come True

Hi! Loved the look and what an amazing song to go along with it! Do you know which artist and song title it is?

Have a great new year!!

I did this look for New Year’s! i used aromaleigh colors and wore falsies for the first time ever. :) Thanks for such a cool look!

Hello Marlena, just stopping by to say, my makeup just arrived , i`m so happy, i will be buying more from this site,the price are amazing !
thanks again lela3132

I was just wondering if you could email me becuase I have a few questions :)

Thanks!,
xoxo sabrina :)

Hey Marlena!!! I just wanted to ask you something….is there any other eyeshadow primers that are cheaper that I can use than urban decay primer potion?…. :) Thanks!!!!

Its me again…sorry to be asking you so many questions!! …I know this isnt for this video..its actually for the kim kardashian vegas look video but, I was wondering if there was a big palette like the mac warm palette that was in that video with either brighter colors in it or just had all colors in it? Thanks so much!!!! :)

I have a question, I recently went to Walmart and while looking though the make up section I came across a new brand I have never seen before; “Hard Candy”. What is your take on this brand? What I have tried I liked it – it has a conceler pallet similar to Makeup-Forever Camo Pallet No. 1.

Hey Marlena,
Its me Sabrina from the houston area! Im not the other gal name Sabrina Deemer, just wanted to let you know that.Hope u r having a great vaction! Cant wait til you post another video!!! Take Care! Muah!!!!

Hello Marlena ..
Is thier any chance of you doing a very dark Gothic style make up ie very dark eyes eyeliner and dramatic to the the point of gothic, as my partner is very much into this area of make up due to her profession and would be nice to see your ideas?

just a thought for the future :-)

Hey Marlena,
I was checking out Stagetechnology.com i was wondering which form of Azalea pigment did you use?Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Color LU-16 Azalea (.09 oz) , Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder LX-16 Azalea (.24 oz) or Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Sparkle Powder LXS-16 Azalea (.28 oz). Also just curious have you ever tried thier cream shadows? if so did you like?

Thanks hope your New year is going well! I have to be honest my boyfriend tells me to stop watching your tutorials because i want everything you use!!!

Have you ever heard of or tried Micabella cosmetics? its similar to True colors if you’ve heard of that too. They are loose powder eyeshadows. You can also use them to turn into hair dye or nail polish. Visit their site tell me what u think Marlena!! The hot pink one I use by Micabella is called Resonance. Its similar to the one you used in this tutorial.

Hi Hayley!!

I purchased couple of eye shadows from micabella. i puschased them at the Cerritos mall in Cerritos Ca.
I love their products. i recomend.

Marlena- YOUR MY HERO!!!

HAPPY NEW YEARS to all the Muggies

HI clyde!!

Yes I love their products too. They have such rich pigments. I got mine at Town center mall in Kennesaw , GA. I live in Indiana now though so i have to purchase online. :(

Hey! Marlena i love this look it’s really beaytifull and i like your nails :p I’d never know to watch your video Happy new year !.

Hi Marlena!

I love your tutorials!! i’ve learned sooo much about makeup and i’m loving it!…I have a quivk question. What kind of foundation would you recommend for combination skin (mix ) with lost of freckles?
thanks!

Patricia

I really like Revlon’s Colorstay, but it is a heavier foundation- not sure how much coverage you want. My other favs are Estee Lauder Double Wear, Bare Escentuals, and Makeup Forever’s Matte Velvet for a little less coverage :)

Hi Marlena, i just started watching your videos on you tube & I just wanted to say how helpful they are! I love all the different looks you do & if i have a make up query i know that im bound to find the answer in one of your videos. You seem like such a nice person and i just wanted to say thanks for doing what your doing :) xxx

I just love your hair color. I was wondering what color is your hair? It looks so healthy. What is your hair regime’?

The dark color is my natural, and there’s the platinum blonde bleached out (with a softer bleach- not sure what my hairdresser uses, but I’ll ask). There’s also a bit of auburn red color in large chunks underneath :)

I tried this look for New Years Eve and it was great, my only problem was I spent the night with my hubby and all of my guy friends and they kept asking why I was crying. I guess my sparkle liner looked like tears in a certain light. Ha ha, oh boys!

Hello Marlena, I would like to know if you can tell me what color eyeshadows look nice for a blue dress.

Marlena,
I love this look! how do you come up with these ideas? Did you go to beauty school?

-Elizabeth S.

hi marlena.. my bf gave me some make up palettes from bhcosmetics.com and i was wondering wat was a good primer to use for them. i usually wear mac and i know the palettes rnt as good as mac but i wanted to give them a try, i appreciate if u write me back.. take care

i love the way you do your make up marlena by looking at your video i wish i could do my make up like that..

Love your tutorials…I check back often to see updates!! can you do a tutorial for Mac 6 Devil May Dare Warm eye shawdows…I just bought it and would love a tutorial……I think it is new….for holidays.. thanks….best wishes

Hi Marlena,

I love your website! I love this look. I tried this on me with some make up I have from Dior, since here in the Netherlands we don’t have Nash. Next week I’m going to look voor some MAC items… I hope I don’t become adicted on those too ;)

I hope you will post more tutorials… I really like your tips.

Thanks!

Greets,

Patricia

I loved this look, but used greens instead because pink shadows make my eyes look bloodshot and tired. Love it thank you!

i have a big big problem with my skin. please, help me out a little bit! when i go out for a party, and dance of course all night, my face looks pretty bad after like an hour of dancing. maybe even faster. i put a foundation and a little bit of powder, and it comes off and i get red. i tried the sephora fix spray to make the make up last longer, but it didn’t work. maybe a base before the foundation, or something?what can i do? please, i don’t want to look like a tomato anymore;P

I am very very sorry to put this on the wrong video(for some reason, i was not able to leave a comment on the one i wanted), but anyway in your Christina Aguilera hair one.. It gave me an idea.. now i absolutely love her, she is so beautiful but the look i like the most is the one where she had long blonde hair with black in it, you can find it more likely with her stripped album, anyway i was just wondering if you were able to create a video on her look then, like how to dye your hair like that and also what else she does with her hair. It would be much appreciated. thanks.

Where do I suggest a tutorial??? I really need to see how? you do this!! Well if you see this, then do a google pic search on ” Celine Dion – Let’s talk about love ” How do you do that look???

Please help!

Hi, Thank you so much for all the makeup tips…IT TRULY IS A WORK OF ART!!! Can you do a tutorial on how you style your hair! Your hair always looks sooo wonderful…I LOVE IT!! The COLOR and HIGHLIGHTS and STYLE!!

Thank you soooo much!!!!

Hey Girl.

I have a question for ya?
I recently bought a few colors of the NYX Glitter (the one with the tassel) and I noticed that when I use it….it makes my eye puff up!! I figured there must be something in it that I’m allergic to….I’m not usually allergic to stuff too…weird right? So…What can you suggest instead of that brand ?? I love the way it adds to my look….but having a puff eye isn’t what I was going for! Booo Hoo..

Thanks girl..and keep doing what your doing…your GREAT!
