Remember when Jeremy Meeks went viral for being the ‘hot felon’, and everyone lost their damn minds?
Now out of prison, he’s pursuing a modelling career and it’s safe to say, he’s living the high life.
The strange turn of fate worked out pretty well for Jezza, but could Marshala Perkins be following in his footsteps?
The self-taught makeup artist’s mugshot recently went viral, because people were DESPERATE for a makeup tutorial.
The Twitter account Mugshot Baes posted the photo, and a few months later, it gained hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets. Just look at this glam…
We need a tutorial! Free her! https://t.co/RWbrKMPUUj

Now it seems that her luck could be changing if recent events are anything to go off. Marshala spoke to Star-Telegram and it turns out she has some super exciting news – she could be launching her own makeup line in the near future!
“Someone has reached out to me about starting my own makeup line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown,” she said. “Now it’s turned into something so positive so I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me.”
This post spoke to me!! Y’all just don’t know when i first started doing makeup on people i felt like i was in LAST PLACE! i felt like i wasn’t good enough, clientele was shit, and everything I’ve ever worked to teach myself was a waste. But some how God is turning everything around right in front of my eyes 😭 i just want to thank him for everything!!! Y’all was counting me out but God wasn’t and that’s all that matters. I have so many big things coming up and i just hope he guides me and builds me up while I’m on this journey. -Your new fav makeup artist 💄

Marshala explained to Buzzfeed what went down on the night she was arrested. She explained that she was parked in a handicap spot, but she had a badge as her mother is handicapped and she often drives her around.
“[One officer] asked me for my handicap sticker because I was in a handicap spot. I gave it to him and he brought it back, said everything was clear.”

Suddenly the police officer reportedly said that he smelled weed, and asked her to get out of the car so he could search it. He found two grams of weed, which Marshala claimed she’d planned to smoke with her friends.
She was booked, and so the mugshot was born. At first, Marshala explained that she felt embarrassed, but later felt pleased that everyone was so impressed by her makeup skills – after all, that’s her craft. Ah, we love a happy ending.
