Makeup Favorites of 2012

Hi girls! I am so happy to be back filming videos for all of you
in this new year, and I wanted to begin by doing my 
favorites for 2012... I broke up the video in two parts because
I didn't want it to be super long.

The first part includes face, blush, and tools and the
second part includes lipstick, eyeliner, and shadows. 

I hope you enjoy the videos and I will be having a tutorial 
up very soon!

This is the upcoming tutorial look *preview!*

Cotton Candy Queen ft. Color Elations Loose Eye Shadows

I hope all of you had an amazing weekend and a great Monday,
I decided to start the week off with a blog post... I was going to film 
videos this weekend but I have the sniffles *sniff sniff* 
But anywho, this look was super fun to create and wear.. I wore
it to dinner and I received so many compliments on it! The waitresses were 
going crazy over it. Cut crease looks are so fun to wear and interesting to look at.

Products Used: 

Hard Candy Just Face It Foundation in Light
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in #2
Youngblood HD Powder
MAC Blunt Blush 

Milani Brow Tint Pen in Taupe
Maybelline Clear Brow Gel

MAC Saint Germain Lipstick

ELF Eyelid Primer
Color Elation Eye Shadows in 
Metro Mauve (the brighter purple), 
Cirrus (the icy white)
Urban Plum (the darker purple) 
and Raspberry Jam (the pink)
ELF Liquid Liner
Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara

The quality of the Color Elation Loose Eye Shadows are, as always, amazing.
All of the shadows used for this look were used dry and if you want
to increase the intensity you can use them wet. I definitely recommend 
checking out the Color Elation online store and trying out their shadows. 

If you want a full complete review of each of the shadows let me know 
in the commend section below. The collection is $15.00 or
you can buy the individual shadows for $6.50 here.

Coming Back With A Bang!

I am so happy to be back blogging! I seriously missed the beauty 
community so much... I have been doing my makeup everyday but 
for some reason I would never have time to document it. But fret no more!
Marla is back, WITH A BANG! 

You all know how much I love my old Hollywood looks and 
this look was very much inspired by Marilyn and other hot women of her time. 
Red lips never get old and with a good contoured cheek, you are 
good to go! What do you all think of this look?

I felt so glamorous wearing it!
