30th Retrospective


Thirty years ago, a group of dedicated and passionate people came together with the mission to uplift women diagnosed with cancer. Knowing the power in feeling like yourself, our workshops were born. 

Since then, 300,000 women have attended a workshop, learned to manage the appearance related effects of cancer—and most importantly—found a community to lean on for support. Whether a new friend or a tried-and-true supporter, we wouldn’t have made it this far without our community—thank you. 

As we look ahead to the future and what is next for us, we think it’s only right to look back at where we started and speak to those who know us so well. 

SUPPORT THROUGH THE YEARS

When Mary Kay Ash founded her eponymous beauty company in 1963, making the world a better place was a central tenant of the brand. Nearly 60 years later, and Mary Kay Cosmetics continues to embody this by uplifting and supporting women facing cancer. With many friends at Mary Kay Cosmetics—like Look Good Feel Better’s Chair, Lynda Rose, the late Sharon Coburn, and nearly 600 Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants who make up half of LGFB’s volunteer team—the beauty brand’s commitment to bettering the world continues to beautifully impact Look Good Feel Better.
