A Classic Novela Beauty with Mary Kay
Hey loves, this post is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Bloggers Connect and Mary Kay. Any and all opinions expressed are honest and my own. How many of you watch novelas (Spanish soap operas)? I remember watching them with my grandma and they were so dramatic! But, we wouldn’t of had it any other way. I remember Dos Mujeres Un Camino was her favorite!
Today, novelas (soap operas) are still dramatic, but are definitely different from those I watched with my grandma. If you watch Spanish television than you know what I’m talking about.
Starring and directed by Mexican actress, Kate del Castillo, this Spanish language novela will portray Ela (Kate Del Castillo) as a talented NASCAR race driver who has been playing second fiddle to her long-time boyfriend, Jordi (Christian Meier), who races on the same team. During their relationship, Jordi, a machista, has made it very clear that it’s Ela’s job to cover him, so that he can take all the glory and win all the races for himself. The dynamics change as Ela comes into her own and her friendship with Jordi’s brother, Checo (Carlos Ponce) blossoms. Riddled with love triangles and plot twists, Ela struggles through the challenges of ambition, career, loyalty and love. Will Ela be at the finish line alone or will true love be her reward?
As part of their collaboration, Mary Kay wanted me to replicate an evening beauty look of one of the characters named “Marite.” She is considered the classic beauty, but with bold and sensual touches.
As you can see in the photos I’m doing my best novela poses! LOL!

I’ve always been a fan of Mary Kay, but I’ve never used their liquid eyeliner before. I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing it a lot more. And the Mineral Eye Color in Truffle is gorgeous! I’m totally feeling Marite’s look! If you’re a novela fan, make sure you check out Arranque de Pasion. It will air on Univision in its entirety on Sunday, 5/5 @ 10pm EST. View the webisodes now.
