Mom With Cancer Looks Unrecognizable After Daughter Gives Her Well Deserved Makeover [Watch]

Sometimes things happen in life that are well beyond our control. Cancer flips lives upside down, many women lose their battle and some their self confidence. Fortunately, there are some beautiful people in the world that speak life into those horrible places and give us what we need right in the nik of time.


Freelance makeup artist and YouTube blogger Nadina Ioana is no stranger to this kind of suffering. Her YouTube is based on her own original makeup tutorials, though she recently decided to do a very special video: a tutorial meant to transform cancer patients who have found themselves unrecognizable after chemotherapy treatments.

Ioana even used her own mom as the subject of the transformation.

From The Little Things:

Completely bald with pale skin, Mom is seen in the video sitting with her chin held high as Ioana begins the makeover, listing what items she is using as she goes along.

Slowly, the transformation takes shape.

First, the eyebrows are filled in. Then, Ioana works on her mom’s skin, filling it with the same color and vibrancy she undoubtedly had before the chemo treatments.

Mom’s eyes begin to pop as the transformation reaches its climax.

Finally, with one well-applied wig, Ioana’s mom is a completely different person from the one who originally sat in her chair at the start of the video. We have to say that while she was totally transformed by the end, she’s a beautiful woman no matter her look. The best part of this whole video may be her smile, which blossoms into a bigger, brighter grin by the end. She deserves nothing but the best!
