Makeup Class Helps Cancer Patients in Bridport
7:13am 24th December 2013
A free master class in makeup tips for women suffering from cancer is being held in Bridport in January.
It's being put on by the Living Tree Support Group at the Quaker Meeting House at 2pm on Friday 31st January, 2014.
Jo Millar who has firsthand experience of the illness came up with the idea.
Jo reflects on her own experience. "I was introduced to Look Good Feel Better in Exeter and attended a session designed to teach women new make-up skills. It was a huge boost to my self-esteem and helped me get back that sense of wanting to make an effort." Jo really valued the guidance of a trained beautician. "There are many visible signs of cancer treatment, like losing your eyelashes, and I picked up lots of hints and tips on how to define my eyebrows and which colours suited me. Above all, the class was relaxed and great fun - a much needed bit of me-time away from hospital and clinics!"
The two-hour Masterclass will be led by trained, volunteer beauty professionals and beneficiaries are taken through a specially designed 10-step skincare and make-up regime. The aim is to help the wellbeing and confidence of people undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer, improving their self-image and appearance whilst meeting other people in a similar situation, at a time when they maybe feeling vulnerable and low.
