Beauty Tips for Beginners…

Does the thought of putting on tons of makeup frighten you? Well if you’re a total beginner when it comes to makeup, you’ve come to the right place! Here at The Breast Cancer Charities of America, we offer a beauty program to women battling breast cancer called Feeling Beautiful Again. So many women are stripped of their femininity when undergoing treatment and often don’t feel like themselves. We’ve compiled a list of beauty tips for beginners, those who aren’t as familiar with makeup, or just want to learn some best practices for their daily routine.

First things first though, SKINCARE. So many women turn to makeup to conceal their skin problems, but makeup products can only do so much and can even enhance those issues. Taking care of your skin is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to beauty tips. So here are some skincare tips to remember:

  • Drink plenty of water, hydration is KEY!
  • Don’t sleep in your makeup
  • SPF, SPF & more SPF!

Once you’ve come up with a good skincare regimen that works for you, then you can start experimenting with different beauty products! Of course, before putting any product on your precious skin, be sure to consult with your doctor and read the ingredient list. While undergoing breast cancer treatment your skin can become extra sensitive, so using all natural and vegan products can make a world of a difference. So, let’s get started…


When it comes to makeup, everyone’s skin can react differently. Starting with a primer can help decrease oiliness, dryness, oxidization (keeping your skin from turning orange), and even the appearance of larger pores. It also helps lengthen the wear of your makeup throughout the day!


BB Cream is a great product to use when trying to even out your skin tone without making it feel like you have a pound of makeup on your skin. It’s an easy product to wear daily that often has sun protection built in. SCORE!


Concealer can be the ultimate holy grail! It can be used for so many different things such as brightening your under-eyes, covering up scars or acne and just brightening any dark areas on your skin. When choosing your color, it’s important to find one at least a shade or two lighter than your typical foundation color to really help the brightening affect!


Blush will be your best friend. On days that you feel drained, blush can help make you look full of life by adding some color to your face! Finding a nice warm tone can really give you a light sun kissed look!


Lipstick can really bring an entire look together. If you aren’t crazy about wearing a ton of product, lipstick can be your best friend. Finding a good natural color can bring more color and life to your face and can change your look dramatically!

Beauty Products are meant to enhance your natural looks not completely change them, so if you are a beginner find your favorite features and play off of those! And just remember have fun!
