Looking good. I like the kick of color with the orange earrings to top it all off. I see you’re digging the new do.


Marlena, you did an awesome job with your interpretation! I wish I had the colors you do to work with!

Hi Marlena. Thanks again for the great tutorial! I would’ve never thought of putting oranges & greens together, but they totally work….Hey, if you ever get the chance, can you do a tutorial on Vegas Showgirl makeup simulating Elizabeth Berkeley’s makeup in “Showgirls”? Thanks!

Hi Marlena,

I loveee this website, thanks for all your great tutorials and such! This look is just awesome!

I’m from Holland and just started to use M.A.C and I’m in love already, lol!

I was wondering what you use for your brows? Thanks!

Hi Marlena!
I love your tutorials, I watch each one and I try at home. I would like to learn more day time looks. I love the smokey blues but does not have a video and I am a beginer with make-ups and It’s hard to achieve that look.
Your videos are the best because you explain in details and also show all colors that’s the most important thing for those like me does not have MAC eyeshadows and use more affordable ones like coastal scents. So we can compare and try to find the closest color. So please teach me how to create more daytime looks!
Thank you you are the best!

this is sooo pretty!

i recognize that picture the girl with the black hair, i saw it on the Hot Topic clothing store website

this look is really cool!

Hey Marlena,

I am new to your tutorials, but absolutely love them. I am such a makeup junkie. I had no idea there were so many like me out there. I just moved and now have a MAC store at my disposal….OMG!….so I have many colors written from your repertoir…LOVE the greens ( which brings up a question) I have brown hair ( pretty dark ) and I have blue eyes…I know I have been told use whatever colors there are no rules…but I need to know…were I to choose greens ( which I LOVE LOVE LOVE )…which of the Mac colors would you recommend for my eye/hair color? I LOVE the black emerald you scored in Cali, and will be getting that. Thanks and keep up the great work…you are beautiful!

i was wondering i am a beginner in make up dont really use eyeshadow but can you give me some tips on how to get started and get my eyeshadow looking like the picture called funky orange and green
