mondays with mark: NYE looks

It's been a busy holiday weekend. Did not do too much other than eating and enjoying our presents. I'm having lots of fun with a photo frame that displays various images saved on the sd card. It stores/shows 200 pictures. A very fun gift! Since receiving four seasons of "Big Bang Theory", I have been lounging around watching it all day. No worries though! Makeup looks galore, coming soon. I got a makeup kit for Christmas too! Of course new clothes and accessories! More outfit posts coming too.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones! What were your favorite gifts?

New Year's Eve is coming very soon! Here are some looks that are pretty and festive for those parties you will be going to.

Visit my mark store for your NYE look. Order today. Shipping takes four days. Just in time for NYE ^_^

These mark products will help with a festive look for sure! Metallic eye liner and metallic eye shadows.

It's Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
Our family always celebrates together with lots of food, drinking, movie, games, and of course good conversations. This year I was able to use my camera and equipment to take some family photos. We had so much fun with it.

date night beauty and!

I am excited and nervous to introduce this date night look. This is the first video of my makeup and fashion. Thank you Hoa for giving me the courage to do this. I'm seriously shy. Wierd right? I cringe at the thought of doing these types of videos. So I hope that you all enjoy it! If this turns out good, you can expect more. Check it out and like or leave some sweet comments for me. Thank you again for all of the love and support!

note: i am not a makeup artist.

Just in case you are interested, swatches of Corset and the Neutral color I used up close! Corset is a dark black color, but I lightly applied it in this tutorial.

last minute holiday look

Usually today would be about my personal style. However it is yucky outside and I procrastinated. So hopefully next week I will be back on track. No worries I brought a makeup look for you all. I was inspired to wear a holiday look out today. I wanted to be festive while dropping gifts off to friends and family who will be missed on Christmas.
I did a simple neutral eye color with red lips. My camera did not do this look justice. The lip color was so much more red than this. I was proud of myself for going bolder.

Eyes: mark on the dot palette in neutral. I used the light color on the inner part of my eyes and shaded a darker brown on the outer. I also shaded the lower inner corner of my eyes to open it up! I love doing that.
Lips: Revlon lip butter in berry smoothie and Mark lip click in cha cha.  I mixed the two colors so that I would not have crazy red lips. Using two different shades helps tone down the red. It was a really pretty red, however the camera did not do it justice. *sig…

office holiday party

Last week our office had a holiday party at Aloft hotel in Ballantyne. It is as fancy as it sounds!
My co-workers and I gathered at the Aloft bar and enjoyed house beverages and food. The boys even challenged one another for games of pool. An acoustic singer entertained us and let one of our own join him for Jimmy Buffet. Unfortunately I missed that.
A very fun and festive evening out with my work family.

mondays with mark: NYE look

I still have not finished my shopping. It will be gift cards for everyone left. I am exhausted running around during this time of year. Now with Christmas winding down I will try posting New Years Eve (NYE) looks. When I think of NYE makeup glitter, sparkle, sequins all come to mind. Every year we have a get together with a couple of friends and family. We ring in the New Year with lots of drinking and playing games. So fun! Anyone have any amazing NYE plans?

Here is a look that is somewhat familiar. The gold/yellow and black eye makeup I have done in the past. This time around there is a little sparkle in there. I'm not sure you can tell by the photos, but yellow sparkle dust was added to my lids on top of my eye makeup.

Eyes: Mark super flip for it in taxi and black tie. NY color shimmering loose in sunshine. Loreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara, Blackest Black
Cheeks: Nars in orgasm
Lips: Revlon peach parfait lip butter

OOTD cloche hat

Cardigan: BCBG (thrift) Cami: Target Jeggings: Target Booties: Marshalls Clutch: Thrift Jewlery: Touch of Glamour
I recieved this hat for my birthday. Now that it is cold out I can sport it. I love this hat because it makes me feel like i'm Blair Waldorf. Fashionable and practical! It is perfect for keeping my head warm and cute. Do not let the pics fool you. It was very cold out and had my jacket off. I was freezing while trying to smile in the cold winds.
Do you wear cloche hats or would you?
