Before and after FOTD - Look Good, Feel Better

With all the no makeup selfies floating around Facebook and Twitter for breast cancer awareness, I thought I'd take this opportunity to post about the cancer charity Look Good Feel Better, a charity that I'm hoping to be involved with in the near future.  They focus on helping women deal with the visible effects of cancer treatment, such as loss of eyebrows and eyelashes, and skin issues.  At the two hour sessions women are given a goodie bag, and taught the best techniques for dealing with the effects of their treatment.  For many of these women, it's not just about makeup.  It's about taking control of something that cancer had taken away from them.  It's amazing just what an effect not looking sick can have, and how it's a step towards feeling 'normal' again.

So what can you do?  Well you can either donate directly to LGFB via their website, or you can get yourself down to your local Benefit Brow Bar where they're holding Brow Arch March where you can get your brows done whilst donating to the charity.  Alternatively, you can text 'BROW14' followed by the amount you'd like to donate to 70070. 

For today, I have included a no makeup shot of myself (eep, scary stuff!) in the form of a before and after shot.  If you do take part in the no makeup selfies, don't forget to donate some money as well!
