Being a huge fan of the Mary Kay brand, I am really excited to be working on this campaign. Really it is such a great brand that it does not surprise me at all to know that they are an official sponsor of the Univision.com web novela, “Arranque de Pasión, La Historia de Ela.” If you have ever seen actrices de novelas you know how perfect they are, and how incredibly beautiful they look in each and every scene. That's why I am not surprised they are using Mary Kay to create those beautiful looks.
About “Arranque de Pasión, La Historia de Ela.”
The very well known actress Kate del Castillo plays Ela, the beautiful Nascar driver who has been playing the woman behind the man to her muy guapo novio, Jordi. Jordi is played by the oh so sexy Christian Meier. Ela's "job" is to support her man and help him make the win, well according to him. But a talented and beautiful Latina with a head on her shoulders can never just be a sidekick. Ela realizes that if her man really loved her he would want her to do her best and with the help of a very cute, Checo, who is played by Carlos Ponce she leaves that mentality behind and really reaches for her own stars.
Love triangles, jealousy, a wicked and beautiful villana who hates Ela, this novela has it all. And don't forget that incredibly gorgeous cast of men and women. Truly a feast for the eyes, especially the guys!
As part of Mary Kay's sponsorship, they have established some of the character “looks” of the novela and have created a series of vignettes where celebrity makeup artists Luis Casco and Mariela Bagnato will share tips with viewers on how to replicate the characters’ looks.
So my job was to take some really great Mary Kay products and recreate one of Ela's looks. This is the look that I worked on and below you will find detailed pictures of the products.
“Ela” Beautiful at night -
Ela’s evening look reflects her personality with a classic but feminine look with the lips as a focal point.
La personalidad de Eva se ve reflejada en este estilo clásico pero femenino con los labios enmarcados como el enfoque central.
This is a gorgeous presentation and I am in love with this color and how smoothly it applies.
This foundation primer comes in a gel form and applies really nicely. I really loved the setting spray and considering I had my full face on after midnight, I think it did a great job. This should be super refreshing during the summer.
Perfect compact for on-the-go. I love how sleek and elegant it looks.
This is my favorite brush on any mascara. And I truly loved how this combo worked to get into each and every one of my lashes, separating and coating each one.
I normally don't do pencil liners but I was surprised at how well this stayed on. It was a little harder to apply over the shadows but overall it stayed in place so much better than the gel liners I normally use.
Muy bonito verdad? This is truly elegant.

So as you can see, I had a really fun look to play with. And I believe the transformation is pretty incredible. I am sorry you can not see the details of my eyes very clearly, I had to take my own cell phone pictures instead of the Canon, because no one was available to help. I don't normally do eye shadow but I did enjoy how easy it was to do this look with the four colors I had and I LOVE the blush. I will def be using that to show you more looks in the future.
So what do you think? Am I ready to be in a novela?
