Beauty and advanced breast cancer

The side effects of treatment for advanced breast cancer can leave many patients with a negative body image and low self-esteem. From losing a breast to hair loss, many women express that they lose their sense of femininity. What are your makeup and beauty tips for during or after treatment?

  1. I remember looking in the mirror and feeling so defeated that I looked so sick. My secret weapon was a bright lipstick (and I am not a bright lipstick kind of gal). People were already looking at me and my bald head so wearing a bright or bold lipstick wasn't as scary....haha! Makeup was a tool I used---not a lot of it but a great lipstick can go a long way when you are not feeling so great!
