Hi, lovelies! Today’s post features two things I grew up with: Mary Kay and telenovelas. My mom often used to bring home Mary Kay catalogs she’d gotten from her coworkers. Watching telenovelas (soap operas in Spanish) became a bit of a family activity that involved my mom, grandma, and even my dad, lol. Anyways… Mary Kay sent me and a few other bloggers some products to create makeup looks inspired by “Arranque de Pasión“, a new production by Univision and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo. Without giving too much away, “Arranque de Pasión” revolves around Ela, a female NASCAR racer played by Kate del Castillo, her long-time boyfriend Jordi (played by Christian Meier) and his brother Checho (played by Carlos Ponce). I don’t know how familiar you are with telenovelas but they’re all big household names.
“Arranque de Pasión” premiered during April via 15 mini web episodes on Univision (Uvideo.com). It aired in its entirety last Sunday (May 5th) on Univision. The full version is also available now on Univision’s website.
The inspiration for my look was “Ela – Beautiful at night” which meant recreating Ela’s nighttime look. I was sent the following products by Mary Kay to create the makeup look:
– Foundation Primer with SPF 15
– Mineral Eye Color in Almond, Hazelnut, Sweet Cream, and Espresso
– Eyeliner in Black
– Lash Primer
– Lash Love Mascara in I ♥ Black
– Mineral Cheek Color in Golden Copper
– Lip Liner in Spiced Tea
– True Dimensions Lipstick in Rosette
– Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinävia
Ela’s look is very classic and feminine. She doesn’t wear much makeup on the eyes so the focal point are always her lips. I went for a smoky, smudged upper lashline using the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color Eyeshadow in Espresso and Mary Kay Black Eyeliner. I decided to line my entire lips to ensure my lip color would last all night. I then applied Mary Kay’s Rosette Lipstick on top. I set my makeup with Mary Kay’s Finishing Spray (which is made by Skindinävia).

Since Mary Kay is the official sponsor for “Arranque the Pasión“, Mary Kay makeup artists have created several video tutorials inspired by the telenovela. You can watch the Ela, Beautiful At Night video below. There are many other videos by Mary Kay makeup artists on their YouTube channel (in both English and Spanish).
