Make-up artist gives makeovers to cancer patients free of charge

A make-up artist is touring the country to help cancer patients who have lost their hair as a result of their treatment.

Norman Freeman – who as an alopecia sufferer knows the transformational power of make-up first hand – gives makeovers to people with cancer free of charge.

The 22-year-old from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, told Today that the impact of hair loss can be ‘really devastating’ but that make-up can help people to feel better in the face of illness.

‘Being sick, not having any hair — that is really devastating. But I can give you those eyelashes, those brows, and make you feel better,’ he said.

‘I know how untouchable makeup can make me feel. I want help people say: “I’m sick, and it’s awful, but I can still feel beautiful.”‘

Norman was diagnosed with autoimmune disease alopecia when he was five years old.

Within two years he had lost all of the hair on his head and his eyelashes and eyebrows and was subsequently bullied for it.

Although his hair grew back sporadically as a teenager, he later lost it, leaving him ‘in a dark place.’
