MakeUp That Matters Differently | MIMI Foundation’s “If Only For a Second” Video

I always liked to believe that makeup, despite the notion of petty shallowness that surrounds it, is a tool for ministry.  Makeup can be brought forward in many more meaningful ways.  It is a medium that weaves all sorts of good magic in its own way.  Watch the video by the MIMI Foundation in a project entitled “If Only For a Second” here via this link  or  watch it embedded below.  The MIMI Foundation is a French cancer and well-being group.  Twenty cancer patients with eyes with their eyes closed make their way into one studio only to reap a moment that will strongly impact their lives.  Thank you, Mom, for sharing.


“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” – KEVYN AUCOIN, America’s legendary MUA, 1962-2002

  • WOW! This is a very touching video..I almost cried. I feel the woman who said “you immediately stopped being carefree”. I once have an illness, though not cancer but it’s life threatening if not cured. I can’t do whatever I wanted to do when I had that. I can’t breathe and I can’t even laugh. I never thought of myself having that kind of illness at this young age.

    If I would also be in their shoes, I would also be speechless.. I am in awe with what makeup can do.. Thank you for this. 🙂

  • I love the video! I’ve been meaning to watch this since I saw the post but my phone would not play it (data issues). Glad I was able to watch it with surround sound. The reactions were so genuine. 🙂
