October is Breast Cancer Awareness month– an important time for us to remember the women we have lost to breast cancer, to lift up the women living with breast cancer, and to celebrate the survivors. It is also a time to remind ourselves to be aware of the health of our own bodies and pay attention to any changes. We honor Breast Cancer Awareness month by creating the pink ribbon makeup tutorial–a look you can wear to show your support, and we’ve curated a list of five beauty products that also support the cause.
