Beauty: Makeup artist and cancer survivor Tim Quinn on how to go from chemo pallor to radiant good looks

April 17, 2011 |  7:03 am


Tim Quinn, celebrity makeup artist for Armani Beauty, knows firsthand how the physical discomforts of chemotherapy can affect the skin and give the face what he calls a greenish-gray pallor. In addition to working with cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy to help them adjust their beauty routines to meet the challenges of complexion changes and lash and eyebrow loss, Quinn also underwent chemotherapy himself, when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer several years ago.

He demonstrated for us how patients can get a bright glow back by blending highlighter and concealer in the right areas of the face. He also showed the proper way to draw in eyebrows so they look natural.

Check here for Quinn’s tips and to see how he transforms 51-year-old breast cancer patient Jeri Brown’s look from ashy to radiant.
