A 19-year-old's glamorous mugshot taken after she was arrested for marijuana possession went viral as social media users pleaded her for make-up tutorials. Marshala Perkins of Dallas, Texas, said she received numerous requests to do make-up.

The Texas A&M University-Commerce student's mugshot showed her sporting bright pink eyeshadow, with a hint of sparkles, and false eyelashes. While the mugshot was taken in February, it was shared this week on "Mugshot Baes" Twitter account, in which photos of attractive arrested women are featured. One Twitter user tweeted the photo, and said, "We need a tutorial! Free her!" which received 280,000 likes as of Friday.

According to Perkins, she was getting bored the day of her arrest and decided to play with make-up in a Facebook Live video. She applied some glittery pink shadow, finishing off the look with long black lashes. She had planned to hang out with her friends but when she left her dorm she was approached by two Hunt County police officers.

"One officer asked me for my handicap sticker because I was in a handicap spot," Perkins reportedly said, adding her mother who she often drove around was handicap. "I gave it to him and he brought it back, said everything was clear." After the explanation, the officer allegedly said, "It smells like weed in here" — and told her to get out of her car so he could search her.

The officers found marijuana in her car which she planned to smoke with her friends.

Perkins told media that she was initially embarrassed that her mugshot was posted by the police online, but has now come to appreciate the newfound appreciation for her make-up skills.

"Someone has reached out to me about starting my own make-up line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown," Perkins told the Telegram. "Now it’s turned into something so positive so I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me."

This is not the first time a mugshot made someone famous. Jeremy Meeks became the object of affection for thousands of social media users after his "sexy" mugshot was posted on Stockton, California, police force's Facebook page, in 2014. Meeks was arrested on a felony weapons charges. After his release, he landed a $30,000 modeling contract from Blaze Modelz in Santa Monica.

In 2017, the 34-year-old made his first major modeling debut in front of a packed audience during New York Fashion Week at the New York Public Library. The blue-eyed, sharp-jawed internet sensation was dubbed "Felon Bae", "Prison Bae" and "Hot Felon."
