A charity that believes trying to keep a positive attitude is “vital” for cancer patients is aiming to raise their spirits during daunting times.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Look Good Feel Better headed into The Huffington Post UK studio to film a live makeup tutorial designed for women dealing with the side effects of cancer treatment.

Look Good Feel Better

Look Good Feel Better hold free skincare and makeup workshops in hospitals and cancer care centres all over the UK for people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.

The two-hour sessions are led by trained makeup artists who volunteer their time to the charity, sharing tips and techniques to help with the visible side effects of treatments like chemotherapy.

Attendees will also receive a goody bag of makeup to take home, donated by some of the biggest beauty brands around.

Look Good Feel Better

In 2016 alone, the charity aims to support almost 18,000 women with their workshops, and thousands more through online self-help materials, like the live tutorial above.

To find your nearest workshop, visit the Look Good Feel Better website.

Alternatively, the site is also host to a goldmine of beauty information - including beauty tutorials for different skin tones, skin and nailcare advice, and tips for styling headwear and wigs.

Look Good Feel Better also offer women a free ‘Confidence Kit’, featuring a DVD and booklet filled with tutorials and advice for managing the visible side-effects of cancer treatment, with expert tips from AVON Cosmetics and hairstylist Charles Worthington.

You can also support the charity by purchasing its range of makeup brushes, stocked at Marks & Spencer, Boots, and feelunique.com (we’ve road tested them, and can vouch for their super high quality).
