Skincare Tips from a Lipstick Angel
October 2018

Cancer patients have a lot to contend with. The pain and discomfort of treatments, the emotional stress of taking on a life-threatening illness and the fear of not knowing how it will all turn out can leave you feeling afraid, unsure and out of sorts.

The physical side effects of the disease are quite mainstream, but many still overlook the toll cancer can take on a woman’s confidence and self-esteem, which is why the Lipstick Angels were formed.

When Suzanne Cormier of Ellington, Connecticut, first heard about a program called Look Good Feel Better, her first thought was “Why bother?”

“I was facing a double mastectomy and chemotherapy to treat stage 2 breast cancer. How I looked at the time wasn’t a priority,” says Cormier, who was diagnosed in 2016 at age 27. But the more she heard about the program, which teaches skin care, makeup and wig tips to people with cancer, the more intrigued she became.

Karen already had a little bit of bling going on with her glasses and her earrings. She wasn’t looking for anything too outlandish on her lips, just something to give her a little color. Kristin chose a natural shade and went to work.
