Hi I love this and I plan to get some MUG eyeshadows but I was wondering if you have a terracotta color or one close to a terracotta shade?

Same, i’d love to see what it’s like in a look. more tutorials of MUG colours would be helpful when choosing what to get

This is a fantastic look!!! Prefer your tutorials to the step by step pics… Pls could you create a look with the starter kit?

I was thinking the same thing. We’re all more likely to have that combination of colours than any other.

Wow, so beautiful!! Another awesome video. What a inspiration you are. Well, I can’t believe I missed out on this kit! One night it was available and sold out the next night I was going to order it. Dang! Please tell me this kit or others from the new line will be out soon? I want them all! Keep up the hard work girl, you’re fantastic!

Marlena, are you going to bring out your own line of foundations? If so, I REQUEST :)) you make some for oily skin! … great work with your eye shadows, I LOVE THEM!

hii.. can u plz make a colour comparison chart betweenn mac shadows nd mug shadows…that wud b handy…:)

That would be really useful, i’d like to see a tutorial using the starter set as mine has just arrived

Yeah, I’d love to see a tutorial with only MUG shadows to see what the colourful ones are like in a look :) it would help ppl who are thinking of getting some

Hi Marlena. What do you use to fill your eyebrows? It looks so natural. and what colour is it?I love your eyebrows very much! Thank you for your tutorials!!!

i love you!!! I love your tutorials. I’ve learned so much from you. I watched your video on YouTube by mistake, u got me hook on you and makeup! This look is beautiful and I will be doing it! Your beautiful and keep up with the great job.

Gorgeous as usual! Do you have any dups for Lillicent??????? It’s discontinued and very pricey on ebay. How about Illamasqua in Rude? H A P P Y H O L I D A Y S !

I love love this look and that pinky brown…been waiting for a look like this that i can try…so beautiful.
Gotta favor to ask you Marlena…please do a tutorial on Bella Swan’s makeup from the movie Breaking Dawn. I love her eye make up for her wedding but my very favorite is in the very last scenes of the movie it shows her beautiful eye makeup. That is what I would really like to know how they did, and if anyone can do it, you can! Check out the movie, and especially those last scenes. Thank you, and have a very Merry Christmas!

Hi, nice look !! great for work or school !

PS: my face is really dry and my nose is even worse…sometimes i don’t know what to do to “fix” it…..what kind of face primer should I use? Am I allowed to use powder if my skin is so dry ?? I use dry-skin cream and cleaning products…but no luck :( . help !

Hi Alexander….My face used to be the same way – I could rub it and my skin would flake!… But not any more – Did you ever hear of Arbonne? Totally Amazing skin care… Check out the website or you can email me and I can get you more info and even some samples….I wish everyone just knew about these products and how amazing they are for your skin :)

I love this look!! I was wondering what camera you use also, because your videos and pictures are always so beautiful!

Love all your looks! it would be great to have you or at least your skills on prom night ;D but maybe you could help me by doing a tutorial for a nice look for this party? ;) brown hair, hazel eyes an blue dress…
kisses ;)

I think you are one of the most beautiful women I saw and I really admire you and thank you for all you do for us viewers.
I learned a lot from you! I also bought your products and I love every one of them!
You’re one of the most amazing woman and? very admirable !

Keep it up!!

MARLENA! Could you PLEASE do some tutorials using some more MUG Eyeshadows? I know there are lots of people like me who would love to see how they work when thinking of buying them. xxx

Hi Marlena I love the video color are beautiful, i love all your videos, could you please do the make up of Demi Lovato she looks beautiful with the red dress and the make up she was on the People’s Choice Awards 2012

I love love love this look. I hope I can pull it off with my darker skin tone. You look so beautiful!

Such a GREAT look BUT.
I can not find neither lipsticks listed.
Is there and other eye brushes i can use for this look that the Geek store has?

Beautiful look! I wore this for a date and recieved alot of compliments. I was wondering if you could do looks for prom? it would be really helpful becuase I cant afford to hire an makeup artist..
