I’m so excited I had the pleasure of meeting Marlena Stell, also known as Makeup Geek, at her pop-up shop in NYC. Her clothing line is called Marstè, a cute combination of her first and last name. I have been a fan of hers for years and learned how to do makeup watching her YouTube videos.
You would not believe how pleasantly surprised I was while admiring the display of Makeup Geek eyeshadow palettes, to hear her say, “Hi! Thanks for coming!” Shocked that she was there, she told me that she loves to surprise people! We talked and hugged – Needless to say it was a major fan-girl moment for me; she was down to earth and very welcoming.
The palettes were exclusive to the NYC pop-up shop so I wanted to pick one up. I chose Passion, which has MUG classic colors such as Frappe and Cosmopolitan.
The stylists let me know that Marlena designed the palettes to complement the colors in the clothing line. Since I bought plums and blushes, Passion was a no-brainer.
The line currently has sizes from Size 0 to Size 22, which is pretty awesome. It’s rare to see a clothing line catering to all women with a wide range of sizes. The clothes are flattering with great quality material. The color palette consists of black, white, emerald, blush, plum, olive and maroon, making it easy for mixing and matching as well as color-blocking. I’ll show you different ways to style Marstè pieces.

Threw loafers, shades and a jacket on with the same outfit for a different vibe
Marstè leggings are comfortable and have a thicker material
Shoutout to my petite ladies that can never find the perfect length of leggings
Marstè Mesh Jersey in blush tied and worn off the shoulder over a body-con dress
This versatile top can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories and how it’s worn. I have even worn this outfit with sneakers for an athleisure look. It is a jersey after all!
Can we all take a moment to admire this beautiful Marstè Milan Snap Skirt?
…And you can unbutton the skirt as high as you want!
I highly encourage wearing this skirt multiple ways: buttons on the side, buttons in the front, buttoned halfway, or buttoned all the way – depending on your mood
The skirt has a great quality material and will keep me warm in the cooler months
The Marstè stylists helped me pick out gorgeous pieces. I highly recommend checking out the Marstè fashion line. What was your favorite piece?
