Look Good Feel Better

Look Good Feel Better has been in existence 1989 and was developed by the CTFA Foundation, a charitable organization established by the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association (CTFA).

Look Good Feel Better is an international public service program, supported by corporate donors to assist women offset appearance-related changes from cancer treatment.

LGFB have developed a 9-step online program that shows women tips and techniques for skincare, haircare and makeup that will help them Look Good and Feel Better! There are also videos that can be obtained or women can attend a group program.

A question that a lot of post treatment Cancer patients have is "Can I recreate my eyebrows?" Yes it can be done and LGFB has step by step instructions to fill and recreate them:

First, choose an eyebrow pencil shade in your current hair or wig color — or just slightly darker. Since eyebrow color does vary, choose what feels most appropriate for you. For a natural look, some cosmetologists suggest alternating lines with two complementary shades of pencil. Be sure to start with foundation and powder to prevent smudging.

Next, find your natural brow shape. Hold the pencil straight up against your nose, parallel to the inside corner of your eye — and place a dot at the brow bone to mark where the eyebrow begins. Looking straight ahead, place the pencil parallel to the outside edge of the colored part of the eye — and place a dot to mark the highest point in the arch. Finally, place the pencil diagonally along the bottom corner of your nose to the outside corner of your eye — and place a dot where the eyebrow ends.

To recreate the brow, connect the three dots with the pencil using short, feathery, upward strokes to simulate the look of hair. Taper the brow naturally to the end, perhaps using a photo for reference. Use the brush end of the pencil to gently blend and soften. Finally, apply the lightest dusting of loose powder to set the pencil, if desired.
