Makeup shouldn't be about aesthetically improving yourself for society. You already are beautiful! But sometimes when you're sick, especially if you have cancer, it can really help to put your game face on with just a couple of simple steps to make you FEEL beautiful and get you out that door!

There’s a psychology behind wearing makeup and even though we may not like it as women it does work. When you need to rally, it can really help to put your game-face on and even one or two things can help.

If what you have to do is foundation do it quick. However, if that is what you have to have you also have to have something to bring some color back into your now mostly flat face. Using a multi-tasker like the Vapour Beauty is awesome because it was designed for exactly this, multi-purposes. Blend, blend, blend! If you don't have time now you can always blend in the car. Not while you’re driving of course!

Eyelids. And don’t forget lips. Ok, let’s get a little more foundation under the eyes. Covering up any of those dark circles is going to help make you feel much more awake and put together. If you must use mascara, make it quick, make it messy. Woo! And there we have mascara. Now some people really love to just do mascara. That’s fine.

And last but very not least for us chemo girls, especially if you’ve lost your eyebrows -I haven’t yet, I can’t tell if they’re thinning, we’ll see. Don’t be super precise. You know those big brows are in anyway. Oh yeah! And when you’re eyesight starts to go you start getting your makeup everywhere. My oncologist recently said, “Don’t go get any glasses or prescription contact lenses or anything like that, you’re eyesight’s literally going to change in like two weeks. And then it’ll go back again! So why bother?” And then since my -my hands are dirty we’re just gonna loosely take off the edges. Voila!

So you can do one, two, three, four of these steps -any one of them except foundation does have to come with some color and you can be out the door in, I don’t know, two minutes? Is that asking too much? One -one minute. You still have to get dressed. Anyway, the point is to give yourself this uplifting feeling of having some color on your face and possibly giving yourself a little once over to erase some blemishes that are popping up. Whatever it is that you don’t feel confident about you make that your one priority of putting something on. Making yourself feel beautiful so that you can get out that door. It can bolster your own confidence when you look in the mirror and see yourself in a way that makes you feel more beautiful. It’s not about making you more beautiful. You already are that. It’s about feeling beautiful so that you can face the world.
