Food for thought Friday. [Guest Post]

Feel Beautiful and Confident by Experimenting with Makeup!
By: Jackie Clark

When a woman feels confident and comfortable in her own skin, her beauty is apparent to everyone she encounters. Inner beauty and self-confidence equal outer beauty and grace, and every woman should be able to appreciate her own beauty by feeling satisfied in her own skin. Women with cancer are certainly no exception. However, women with cancers, such as breast cancer or mesothelioma often concentrate solely on health rather than physical appearance. For these women, treatments and appointments often take precedence over fashion and beauty. However, experimenting with fashion and beauty products is a great way for cancer patients to receive a significant boost in mood and confidence.

Almost all women use beauty products of some kind. Some prefer subtle makeup techniques, while others enjoy bold, trendy styles. Whichever products and techniques you prefer, experimenting with makeup can be a fun and liberating experience.

When it comes to applying makeup, it's important to decide which features you want to accentuate. If your eyes are your best feature, don't be afraid to try bold shadow, liner and mascara in order to really make your peepers pop. False eyelashes are great for evening and formal occasions, and will really make you stand out in a crowd. Another bold trend in eye makeup is vibrant, colorful shadow and liner. Choose a shade that compliments your skin tone and eye color, and put on a more modern, colorful twist on the traditional smoky eye. With bold eyes, it's best to keep lip color as neutral as possible in order to let the eyes take center stage. If you have great lips, keep the eye makeup to a minimum and choose a bright shade of lipstick. Red lipstick can make a woman feel glamorous and powerful, so choose a shade of red that best suit your skin tone and enjoy this classic look.

Many women are turning to organic beauty products in favor of traditional makeup. Organic products are made with all natural ingredients, such as mineral pigments and plant extracts, and do not contain any dangerous chemicals. Organic makeup is gentle on the skin, making it the perfect choice for women with sensitive skin. The greatest benefit of organic makeup is that it's completely free of harmful chemicals and ingredients.

It's great to have fun with makeup and other beauty products. Instead of viewing it as a chore, try looking at makeup as a way to have fun and experiment with your looks, and enjoy results that leave you feeling beautiful and empowered. Women with a cancer prognosis can enjoy these benefits just as much, if not more, than women in perfect health. The boost in confidence provided by experimenting with makeup and fashion can make a woman feel beautiful and comfortable in her own skin, which will surely translate to outer beauty and confidence.
