Round Up: November Beauty

I started off this month with a mark. Makeup Monday filled with Holiday Glam Inspiration & a look back at my favorite looks from the past year that could be recreated for any Holiday occasion. Then I continued the Holiday Glam trend and added 3 more Holiday-tastic Looks!

There are still 3 more Mondays before Christmas Eve that means 3 more inspirational Holiday looks! (who are we kidding I'll probably post an extra special glittery Christmas Eve mark. Monday

#1 I'm getting paler by the second

mark. Makeup Monday: Goldi Luxe

Livingaftermidnite: mark. Makeup Monday: Goldi Luxe
Red & Gold...so perfect for the holidays!
Total Glam but completely wearable! 

I really wanted to do a matte red lip & couldn't figure out what to put on my eyes. Once I scanned over mark.'s iMark Metallic Shadow in Goldi Luxe in my palette it was an easy decision. 
I wore this look to a surprise birthday party on a Sunday Afternoon and it was still fun & festive without going overboard.
