In this book, Carmindy takes you in hand and shows you both practical makeup tips and positive ways to THINK differently about your own beauty. I love the stories and makeovers of the real women in the book. Aged 18 to 60+, each lady said something I could relate to. After reading GPB, I can honestly say I've stopped looking at my "big" nose and started playing up my big brown eyes with abandon. Thanks, Carmindy!
Carmindy's advice is heavy on pep talk. It's a very positive book.
She also delivers precise, clear tips (with a product list at the back of the book) for specific issues. The question-and-answer sections -- broken into sections such as eyes, skin, etc. -- are also helpful and cover a wide range of ages, skin types, and skin tones and colors.
I'm a former model and now "of a certain age"... meaning over 50. While I have some "Where do I start?" issues, and her Q&A section answered several questions for me, this wasn't my favorite makeup book. (I highly recommend The Makeup Wakeup: Revitalizing Your Look at Any Age for anyone over 40, and certainly for 50+, 60+, and beyond.)
In "Get Positively Beautiful," I really liked Carmindy's photo illustration showing exactly what makeup she carries when she travels. I also appreciated her advice for air travel, including getting on board wearing no makeup and lots of moisturizer. (I routinely do that, knowing I don't look my best at the boarding gate.)
Carmindy's five-minute face advice was intriguing enough that I've ordered her book, The 5-Minute Face: The Quick & Easy Makeup Guide for Every Woman to learn more.
My favorite part of this book included the before & after photos.Read more ›
Have you always wondered how some women get the flawless looking skin and those luscious, dramatic lips and eyes? With straightforward and motivational guidance from Carmindy, you will soon have all the necessary hints and tools to have confidence about your own makeup application.
This book includes a suggested shopping guide for makeup, tools and Carmindy also includes intriguing questions and answers, from her fans. This is a great makeup guide for women of all ages and walks of life.
I highly recommend it!
(9 out of 10 Diamonds) - Loved it!
