Look Good Feel Better offer free beauty workshops for women undergoing cancer treatment

Such a lovely thing to do.

Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is a global charity hosting skincare and makeup workshops for women undergoing cancer treatment, which over 1,000 Irish women attended in 2019.

LGFB have ceased nationwide workshops with the call to ‘stay at home’ during Covid-19, but recognise they are an important resource for women at a very difficult time in their lives.

While skincare and makeup is not a cure, it can help to lift spirits, both physically and mentally, and help rebuild self-confidence for those undergoing cancer treatment.

Because of this Look Good Feel Better are now offering virtual workshops, completely free of charge to women dealing with the affects of cancer.

LGFB have launched a series of free one-to-one virtual makeup workshops with their team of makeup experts.

According to General Manager Annabel O’Keeffe;

“With Covid-19 we have postponed our unique confidence-boosting workshops but, sadly, cancer doesn’t stop. One person in Ireland gets diagnosed with cancer every three minutes. Look Good Feel Better workshops bring a smile to the faces of women undergoing cancer treatment, we think that this is really important, especially now, and we don’t want this to stop.”

Each video session lasts 1 hour and participants are taken through skincare and makeup by professional makeup artists.

Having watched close family members and friends go through cancer treatment I know how important having a break to focus on something positive is.

That’s why I think online workshops like these are a brilliant idea.
