Beauty, Makeup Expert, Best Known for TLC's "What Not to Wear"

For 10 years, millions of viewers counted on Carmindy to teach them about the latest makeup tips and tricks on TLC’s hit show “What Not to Wear” but what really inspired her viewers was her confidence-boosting attitude towards all women.

Carmindy taught them how to see their unique beauty and stop any negative commentary going on in their heads. She showed that all women, of all ages, possessing all types of features had the right to love and celebrate themselves. That positive attitude inspired her to create Carmindy Beauty, a streamlined collection of beautiful color cosmetics for all women regardless of age or skin type.

Since her Southern California childhood, Carmindy dreamt of traveling the world doing makeup and meeting inspiring women. Through hard work and an unstoppable attitude, she made that dream a reality. She painted faces in the studios of Paris, on the beaches of Brazil, and on the streets of Havana. She’s lived in Los Angeles, Milan, Miami, and now makes her home in New York, where she established herself as a top makeup artist and beauty expert.

Carmindy is the author of 4 best-selling beauty books: Crazy Busy Beautiful: Beauty Secrets for Getting Gorgeous Fast, The 5-Minute Face: The Quick & Easy Makeup Guide for Every Woman, Get Positively Beautiful, and Bloom. Her work can also be seen in the editorial pages of leading magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, InStyle, O, Essence, Self, Lucky, Glamour, InStyle, Town and Country, Conde Nast Traveler, Seventeen, Marie Claire, and more. The only makeup artist featured regularly on television, Carmindy is a sought after keynote speaker about beauty and self-esteem, the empowerment of women through uniqueness, and her own self-made success story.

In her talks, Carmindy provides audiences with hundreds of tried-and-true beauty secrets to allow women to make themselves over for less than $20. More importantly, she teaches women that before they put on one dab of makeup, they need to find the beauty within and embrace their uniqueness, rather than run away from it.

Carmindy believes that the key to a great look is learning how to enhance your best features with sheer washes of color rather than hiding under layers of artificial-looking makeup. Carmindy provides her beauty philosophy, offering a practical, easy, and always-successful makeup routine that works for all ages and skin types and shows how finding your own beauty is liberating and empowering.

In addition to her television, magazine, and speaking work, Carmindy's commercial clients include Maybelline, Sephora, Clairol, Avon, Aveeno, CoverGirl, Almay, Bath and Body Works, Sally Hansen, Crest Whitestrips, Q-tips, and CIBA.
