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.

So, when I saw such mixed reviews on this one, I was a bit afraid. But I went with my guts and I am so happy with this!
Maybe it depends on what people are looking for, but I found everything I expected in it. True, it doesn't have exactly many pictures in it, but I didn't mind that. It has both Summer and Winter tips. It has tips from readers, which are all so interesting! SImple things you can do from home. It has questions, which Carmindy answered. It goes through all the skin types and problems (even Rosacea) and what to do/not to do with make-up. Some Money saving tips are also included... I won't reveal more.
I have to add, it looks good in Kindle (which sometimes is so hard to find... some books are just confusing in kindle).
The only thing I didn't like was the Kindle price, I think it was a bit too expensive. However, I don't know if that is because I'm currently outside the US.
