EOTD- Bronzy Neutrals

So this is my EOTD/FOTD before I cried it all off.
I just got back from seeing my Grandpa Krainock.
Yesterday, he had a stroke, and he's lost control of the left side of his body.
I sat there and held his hand and massaged his back.
He is to the point now, where, he cannot even talk.
The words just won't come out. His lungs are filling up with fluid.
Grandma just prays to God to take him soon, and take him peacefully.
He's tired, he seems ready. It's just so hard to say goodbye.

Anyway, he's the kind of man that has never complained.
Worked 3 jobs to support his 10 kids. And touched so many lives along the way.
Even on his death bed, he always asks about everyone else- "how's Joe?" (my bf).
He's the kind of man that wants everyone to keep going and be happy.
I have never in my life, respected someone so much.

The last time I saw him (he was able to talk) and I was wearing a bright neon greenish-yellow t-shirt and bright eyeshadow to match, and he called me a Lemon-Drop! lol

My nick name (he had nick names for everyone) is Witherspoon.
I guess it's from an NFL football player?? lol

Anyway, it's nice to talk about this- it makes me smile (especially after all of the crying- my eyes are sooo dry)!!

So this was my FOTD- enjoy :)






The Face
Missha BB cream
Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup (shade: supernova)



The Cheeks
TheBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer/Contour
NARS Super Orgasm Blush
MAC's MSF in Refined (highlight)



The Brows
MAC's Brow Shader in Porcelain/Browning
MAC's Brow Set in Sophisticated



The Lashes
Shiseido Curler
Tarte's Mascara (this crap clumps so bad on me! I'm gonna throw this thing out!)



The Eyes
UDPP in Sin (base)
NARS Hula Hula (the hazelnut color on my lid)
MAC's Solar White e/s (as my highlight)
KATE (both brown colors in my crease) (the darkest shade in my outer-v)



Liner/Concealer/Lips
Concealer: MAC's Studio Stick Concealer in NW20
Liner: KATE Super Sharp Liner (top)
MAC's Feline Kohl Power Pencil (waterline)
Lips: Money Honey Dazzleglass



*Anyone have any suggestions on a more DARK, like blackest black liquid PEN-type liner?
I've been using Kate's Super Sharp but I have to reapply and go over and over it tones of times for it to show up!
















you all are probably sick of my neutral looks- maybe next time i'll kick it up a notch.

hiya Whit! Thanks for visiting my blog :) To answer your question about the Koji curler, I really like it a lot! It gets to the very root of my lashes, and I think it works better than Shu or Shiseido, you should try it out, it's super affordable as well~ Hope that helps.

Awww Whit... Your family & you are in my prayers. It's never easy when a loved one gets hospitalized. And a stroke is one of the scariest things. Hopefully he's able to get better & make a full recovery. He sounds like a wonderful person. And your nickname is very cute.

And you look gorgeous even in this time of stress.

*BIG HUGS*

sorry to hear about your grandpa, its the same with my ganddad. he had diabetes, he ended up getting a leg amputated, now he's becoming more senile, and on top of that he had a strike and can barely speak. I hate to see my grandad in any sort of pain too. its really sad... worse thing is i havent seen him in like nearly 3 yrs cos he lives in Hong kong. maybe i'll see him this sept..well i hope you feel better soon :) *hugs*

Yoselin said...

Oh Whit, I'm so sorry about you Grandpa. I will keep him and your family in my prayers. When I'm faced with a tough situation I always think, "God only give you as much as you can handle." So confide in the Lord and he will guide you through this tough time. God bless

You look gorgeous here-i love the eyes, and netural looks are my fave. Your eyebrows have great arches too, you should give some eyebrow tips missy!!! Really sorry to hear about your grandpa too xoxox
p.s have you ever tried the more 'felt pen like' eyeliners out? apparently maybeline have a good one for around £5 in the uk thats meant to be super black!

Krasey Beauty said...

This is a beautiful fotd! I love how you lay out what you use where.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am sorry to hear about what you are going through, but the story was definitely both heartwarming and bittersweet. Hang in there gorgeous :)

Pop Champagne said...

That sucks, it's always hard to lose someone so close to you. I cried for a week when my grandpa past away last may. I'm sorry to hear what you are going through *hugs*

And I love your make up! It's shimmering and so natural :)

miRaCLe said...

mayaari said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa - my thoughts are with you & your family to get through it.

I like this look - neutrals are my safe place :) I hear the L'Oreal liquid liner and Revlon liners work really well, and show up super dark; I have the Revlon one and it shows up much darker than my Heroine pen liner.

aquaracer said...

sorry to hear about your grandpa...your story makes me so sad..i dunno, i easily get affected with sad stories...i'll be praying for your family...*hugs to you*
