So today my brother and I went to the hospital to go visit with her for a while and try to cheer her up a bit. And being that I was going out, I decided to share my look with you guys because that's what I do. Plus, it keeps me distracted from thinking to hard on what's going on. I'm hormonal and quick to tears at the moment, so distractions are pretty necessary for the next day or two.
Being that I was on my way to a hospital, I kept my makeup rather subdued, but I did actually bother to contour my face a bit which is pretty rare for me. Hope you like this one!

Hair Products Used: Aveda Elements Defining Whip - Light and 3 bobby pins. I have had a few people ask about my hair so I thought I'd let you know how I style it. Basically I towel dry my hair and wrap it up in a towel while I do my makeup. Then after I finish I let my hair down, still damp, and run a little bit of wax through it with my fingers. Then I just pull my bangs back, or sometimes to the side, and pin them. Then I just kinda finger comb the sides and back of my hair until it looks right. And I do just use a tiny bit of wax; it's mostly just to keep some lift in my roots and to hold my bangs in place.
I know there were a lot of weird faces in this one, but in all fairness I'm in a bit of a weird mood and for whatever reason most of my normal faced pictures turned out really blurry. So, yeah, I just kinda ran with it.
Now I want to take just a second here to give a big shout out to Gemma (@Makeup_Magpie) for being so kind and supportive to me today. She barely knows me, but she saw that I was having troubles and she reached out to me with some very kind words. I feel like it's rare to meet someone who is so empathetic to someone who is practically a stranger, and when you do you should give them some serious credit. I encourage all of you to check out her blog and let her know how awesome she is. To go and share some love, click *here*.
I hope that all of you have had a wonderful day! And just keep in mind how important your loved ones are and be sure to let them know the incredible impact they have on your life. Til next time!
