Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Women today are crazy busy. And they want to be beautiful!

Beauty can be overwhelming. Walk by any cosmetics counter or into any drugstore and you're suddenly surrounded by thousands of products promising to make you look younger, fuller, lusher, thicker, and just about every other "er" you can think of. It sounds too good to be true and most of it is. But who has the time to navigate though all the beauty myths out there (or even her own makeup bag!) to find the tricks that will help you be your most beautiful? Is it really that hard to look and feel your best?

Not anymore! Carmindy, the makeup artist on TLC's hit show What Not to Wear, is opening her beauty treasure chest and sharing more than 600 beauty tips and secrets she's learned on the show and during her years as a makeup artist across the globe. Try these tips from Carmindy:

  • Blackheads be gone! Elmer's Glue is just as good as a pore strip for removing blackheads from your nose.
  • Forgot to pack your eyeliner? In a pinch, mascara can pull double duty as eyeliner. Use a brush to pick up a little color from the mascara wand and smudge it into the lash line.
  • Can't get that last bit of blush to come off? Swipe a cotton ball dipped in mineral oil across stubborn makeup. It will melt off.
  • Traumatized by age spots that just won't go away? Put lemon juice on age spots at night to help fade them. But never apply lemon juice to the skin right before sun exposure.

I was really looking forward to reading this book after seeing Carmindy on TLC's What Not To Wear. What a disappointment! It's not so much a book as a giant list of tips. And there are absolutely no pictures - no before and afters, no demonstration pictures, nothing. The tips are still useful which is why I didn't give the book 1 star.

I love Carmindy and her new book is SO user-friendly, easy and fast. I gave my sis and cousin copies at Easter dinner and they didn't look up from the pages for an hour. I love how Carmindy has included tips for every feature of the face, plus loads of budget-wise ideas from her treasure trove of experience [other women from around the country weigh in with hilarious beauty secrets, too. Who would've thought Elmer's Glue does a bang-up job as a pore strip? Ha.] If you're looking for quick ways to refresh your look and to share a few girlfriend-y laughs, this book's the one to get.

Quick, to-the-point, at times hilarious, but useful nonetheless. Throw it in your bag and be prepared for anything! A collection of tips and tricks that range from "Oh, duh!" to "Seriously?!?!". My daughters are having a blast trying out some of the suggestions that we honestly would have never thought of ourselves. Excellent item to include in a beauty gift basket or as an affordable thank you gift for a helpful babysitter.

I give her three stars for her positive attitude, but there wasn't enough practical advice to make this book worth glancing through more than once. Best tip she offered: Combine your cleanser with white sugar for an effective exfoliator.

I truly love Carmindy for her detail and simplicity, yet this book is just another tip book with tips that you have read over and over in magazines! Nothing special.

This book was good, it had good and useful information, but i felt that i already knew most of the content of the book. it would be useful if you are not familiar with beauty tips and makeup, but if you are it does not provide with a lot information.

I wasn't too impressed with this Carmindy book. I guess that it's supposed to be a quick reference guidebook that you can carry with you anywhere, but it wasn't really for me. There were more tips from people who had wrote in than anything else, and I didn't really find that information to be helpful. Get Positively Beautiful by Carmindy was a great book. I would recommend that one.
