Growing up I watched novelas (soap operas) religiously! For us, novela time was family time. The drama, the death glares, the flawless makeup – NOTHING compares to the glamorous entertainment that is a telenovela. In fact, one of my goals as an actress is to someday be in a novela * hint hint to you creators of fine Spanish language dramas that are reading this*.
As the official sponsor of Univison.com ‘s webnovela Arranque de Pasion, Mary Kay sent me a make-up set so that I could recreate one of the lead’s looks at home. Ela, played by the lovely Kate del Castillo, is an edgy race car driver that sports a contoured yet natural look.
In a rare instance of perfect timing, it just so happened that I was invited to a taping of ‘The Talk’ along with some other influential bloggers, so I decided to put my new Mary Kay makeup to the test.
Here’s what I used to create the look:
- Facial Highlighting Pen #3
- Bronze Diva Coutouring Powder
- Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss in Cafè au Lait
- Chocolate Lip Liner
- Beach Blonde Cream Eye Color
- Lash Love Waterproof Mascara
- Black liner to line my eyes and fill in my brows.
“Arranque de Pasión, La Historia de Ela”, will be airing 4/1/13 – 5/3/13 in 5 minute episodes released on Univision.com & UVideos every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For those of you not into watching things on the ‘net, the novela is scheduled to air in its entirety on Sunday, 5/5 @ 10pm EST on Univision!
