Behind the Scenes of IMATS and special message!

Happy Monday, Makeup Geeks!

I know this video is a little late, but I wanted to share some footage and pictures from IMATS.  Thank you all for coming out to support Makeup Geek and see our booth for the first time!  Me and my staff all had an amazing trip and loved meeting each of you!  We will definitely be back next year, and are already planning on several other meetups for the end of this year and next year.

On another note, we have more eyeshadows in production right now (one of them is a dupe for MAC’s Expensive Pink, but ours is better! shh… ;)  )  and some amazing pigments!   I’m working next on blushes but it takes a bit before they launch, so look for that the end of this year :)

I hope you all are doing really well, and thank you again for your support!  I’m always grateful…

Much love,

Getting ready to set up!



Me and my friend and long time muggie- Frank :)


The EleventhGorgeous girls- such sweethearts!


Amy from Sugarpill!  Another sweetheart, and so fun!

WOW! Marlena I am so proud of you girl. You really deserved it. You are such a sweetheart and really deserved all the love. You are such a inspiration for me because in every aspect of your life you worked hards and succed so well. It make me realized that everything is possible if you really believed in it and work hard to get what you want. You are beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for taking us with you in this beautiful journey that is your everyday life and passion! Love you so so much! Take care and wish you many more years of success! xxxxxx

oooh how I wish I was there! Makeup paradise and it would be so good to meet you… a long way from Melbourne Australia though! Looks like you had a great time, though it must have been a huge effort… love the Makeup Geek brand, love the site and love watching you Marlena. I send the link to all my friends as I think everyone needs a little ‘Marlena time’ in their life, plus, I want to expose them to MUG products as there are so many rubbish brands out there. Keep it up Marlena and thank you for all you give us xxx

I couldn’t be more proud of you, Marlena!!! I’ve been with you since the beginning and you’ve motivated me to become a successful artist who is living the dream! SO THRILLED that you are still doing what you love, what you’re so very good at, and growing Makeup Geek to become an awesome company!!! Sending you lots of hugs XOXO

your booth looked AMAZING! i hope you are so proud of where you’ve come and it must be the best feeling to even be able to hang a sign of a great business you made. you also look amazing and are inspiring me to continue my weight loss.

This looks awesome, congrats!! I can’t wait for your expensive pink dupe, I love that color. Also, your hair is beautiful, you should do a tutorial on it!

I got a little teary-eyed when I saw your crew put up the Makeup geek sign. I felt proud for you. It was like a dream come true kind of moment. You are such a fantastic person and it couldn’t have happened to a better person. I love the work that you do and what you stand for. Hopefully one day I will get a chance to attend IMATS and see you. Keep on rocking! You’re great to watch. <3
