Look Good Feel Good
‘Look Good Feel Better’ is a national cancer charity, which aims to help women, and teenagers combat the visible side effects of cancer treatment at what can be a very difficult time in their lives. The aim is to help patients literally look good and feel better.
In North Wales the charity offers free, two-hour skincare and make-up sessions in a number of relaxed and welcoming locations. They are approximately bimonthly at each venue and details are usually included in our Upcoming events
The sessions are very popular and booking is required. They teach vital skills from helping to correct uneven skin tone to re-creating missing eyebrows. From a light stroke of eye pencil to a splash of lipstick, you’ll learn lots of tricks of the trade to help boost confidence and self-esteem.

Lingerie (Breast Cancer Patients)
For more confidence when choosing a bra after surgery, breast cancer patients are invited to join other women who have had breast cancer at Lingerie Evenings organised by Breast Cancer Care. They offer a practical guide to what to look for in a bra, an opportunity to be fitted and a chance to see how the lingerie looks on volunteer models who have all had breast cancer.
Held in Clare’s Department store, Llandudno, the Lingerie Evening takes place when the store has closed so it’s a safe, relaxed environment where you can meet others in a similar situation and share experiences.
