Our favorite make-up artist, Lex, is back with a new design that carries with it an important message about heart disease and stroke, specifically in women. The vlogger has Type 1 diabetes, so she is especially familiar with this cause. Heart disease the leading cause of death for people in the United States, but it is especially concerning for people with diabetes. Over time, high blood glucose levels can damage blood cells, which can lead to heart disease and stroke, which combined, are the most common causes of death amongst individuals with diabetes.
This anatomically correct(ish) design is Lex’s own way of spreading awareness for this incredibly important cause, which takes the life of approximately one woman every minute.
Check out this incredible art, and you’ll most likely learn a thing or two along the way. I know I did!
