A viral mugshot of a Texas woman, who was taken into custody on Marijuana charges earlier this year, her earned requests for her to release a makeup tutorial.

Marshala Perkins, 19, was arrested for possessing marijuana back in February, the Star-Telegram reported last week.

Her mugshot was uploaded to the “Mugshot Baes” Twitter profile, in which pictures of attractive arrested women are shown.

The mugshot image shows the woman wearing contoured makeup, with pink eyeshadow, with a hint of sparkles, and fake eyelashes.

Perkins said the night she was arrested, she was “bored,” and said, “I was going to go out with my friends looking the way I was looking.”

One Twitter user replied to the photo said, “We need a tutorial! Free her!” which drew 280,000 likes as of last Thursday.

The ambitious makeup artist said she had done a tutorial on Facebook Live before she went out with her friends the night she was booked.

“I sat in my car for two minutes waiting on my friends and while I was waiting a police car pulled up behind me,” Perkins stated.

The cop smelled marijuana and asked her to get out of the vehicle. Perkins said the officer discovered two grams of marijuana in the car.

Initially ashamed that her mugshot was posted by authorities online, the former Texas A&M University at Commerce student has since come to enjoy the newfound appreciation for her makeup talents.

“Someone reached out to me about starting a makeup line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown,” Perkins said to the Telegram. “It’s turned into something so positive I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me.”
