Cancer Treatment Side Effects: How To Apply Make-Up During Chemo

April Capil created this Makeup Tutorial for Women going through Chemotherapy because, during her journey through April Capilbreast cancer, she “found it discouraging that so many of the women we see on television and in the media (like Celia in WEEDS, Lynette in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, and Samantha in SEX AND THE CITY) are depicted as just having buzzed hair or bald heads. If you’ve had cancer and chemo, you know that’s NOT what you look like! Your hair thins, often not fallling completely out. You lose your eyebrows and eyelashes – often you don’t even recognize yourself when you look in the mirror!! It can be very discouraging and you don’t want to go out in public.

“It doesn’t have to be that way. With just a little effort, you can put your face together and feel more comfortable going out in public and not feeling like a freakshow. You just have to rediscover makeup again! Let this video be your inspiration, and check out other YouTube Channels like MichellePhan and MakeupGeek (women who are way, way more talented than me!).”

We LOVE the job she does here – how easy she makes it look to be beautiful!!! Thank you, April!
