Lola Make Up is excited and honoured to be involved with make up led initiative MY-Makeover.
UK Make Up Guru to the stars Lee Pycroft founded MY-Makeover in 2013. It is where Lee and her team use their extensive beauty & makeup knowledge as a form of self care to support the emotional wellbeing of those in vulnerable sectors of society.
Rather then focusing on one sector, MY-Makeover works with several communities & charities as no one human challenge is any more worthy of a MY-Makeover experience than another.
Lee’s view is that when environment, community, touch, support & beauty treatments are combined, there is a shift in a person’s emotional wellbeing. When someone leaves their familiar environment they can become more open to new ideas and often adopt different ways of thinking. This, combined with bringing people together where there is commonality (between the group) and a sense of community, fulfils the need for belonging and connection. MY-Makeover are there to listen without judgement as sometimes people just want to be heard or talk about something unrelated to the challenges they are facing. The power of touch is well known to be an antidote to emotional issues and the variety, fun and the polished result of a range of beauty & makeup treatments gives people the opportunity to reconnect with themselves.
The ripple effect of MY-Makeover runs deep. We have heard stories such as the simple act of a woman buying herself a nail polish after a MY-Makeover session, sparking a new found confidence and consideration towards her own self-care and of new supportive friends being made in a fun, safe and caring environment.
Lola Make Up is happy to help support upcoming MY-Makeover events including 1st August for 20 women living in a refuges in Walthamstow and 11th August an event with The Good Grief Trust for the Grenfell disaster with approx 30 guests to help.
MY-Makeover works with charities including, Solace, Maggies, Band of Sisters, W.A.Y and Royal Trinity Hospice amongst others.
