Sometimes chemotherapy makes patients' skin turn green. Other times yellow. There are times when it looks grey too.

Local celebrity makeup artist - and three-time cancer survivor - Carolyn Diamond has made it her mission to help women going through chemotherapy  look their best. so they can feel their best and recover quickly.  Diamond applies makeup for women receiving chemotherapy treatments for free and she sells them the makeup - at cost - so they can try it at home.

"I try to keep it simple for them," Diamond said in between giving makeup applications. "It's all about understanding the undertones."

Diamond  uses a medical grade mineral makeup that is used on high definition feature films. She's done makeup for tennis player Venus Williams and Billie Jean King. She also works on the Food Network shows. For more information, or to set up an appointment, call her at 267-664-7712 or
