Carmindy, the beauty guru from TLC’s hit show What Not to Wear, has released her third book featuring beauty tips and tricks for time-challenged women.
Crazy Busy Beautiful: Beauty Secrets for Getting Gorgeous Fast offers hundreds of beauty secrets that Carmindy has learned from her many years as a worldwide makeup artist.
The book is organized by features with everything from eyes to cheeks to skin care. Whether you’re looking for advice on creating smoky eyes or choosing the perfect foundation, Carmindy provides tips for day and night, traveling, and all the times in your busy life when you want to look great.
Here are a few of the easy and economical tips you’ll find in the book:
- Elmer’s Glue is an alternative to pore strips for removing blackheads from your nose.
- Mascara can double as an eyeliner by using a brush to pick up color from the mascara wand and smudging it into the lash line.
- A cotton ball dipped in mineral oil removes stubborn makeup like blush.
- Lemon juice applied to age spots at night helps fade them. Never apply lemon juice to the skin right before sun exposure.
