Look Good Feel Better | Makeup Tips

I attended a Look Good Feel Better class hosted by the American Cancer Society on Monday and it was great! For anyone who doesn’t know, this class talks about makeup, wigs, headscarves and more for women who are currently going through chemotherapy or radiation. The class is free and you get a ton of makeup for FREE. Yes, that’s right. FREE! Who doesn’t love free?! You should sign up today!

The ladies from the American Cancer Society showed me how to apply makeup. A lot of these tips I already knew, but it was nice to get some more help. They also showed us fun ways to tie scarves or how to wash your wig.

Also, I learned some makeup tips that I thought it would help anyone who is reading this:

  • When you moisturize your face, use gentle upward strokes. This helps control dryness and create a smooth surface for your makeup.
  • When applying blush, always smile and put it on the apples of your cheeks. Place the blush in an upward stroke and be careful not to put it near your eyes. This can cause you to look puffy.
  • Use an eyebrow powder instead of a pencil for eyebrows. This will make your brows look  more natural. If you lost your brows, look at an old picture of yourself when drawing in your brows.

Do you have any other makeup tips to share? Comment below!

    I’ve just read your blog. I’d first like to say wow what an inspiration you are so positive and upbeat and so amazing that you are helping others in making suggestions of how they can help the side effects that come with chemo. Cancer runs in my family so although I don’t know first hand I am aware of how everything works and just wanted to tell you to stay strong, you are truly amazing. Xxx
