Carmindy Beauty — Top 5 Tips

“Number 1: Get a really good liquid foundation. Find out that has antioxidants, natural botanicals. That way, it evens the skin tone and actually sets the stage for makeup.

Another thing, every girl needs a good mascara. Good lashes are a quick way to make your eyes look defined and even run out the door in a hurry and have a nice frame to the lips.

The most important thing is “Carmindizing”! The Carmindizing highlight. I’ve made this famous on What Not To Wear and it’s about applying a highlight shimmer on top of the cheekbones, under the brow and inner corner of the eye. What this does is highlights your face, showing off your skin, giving off that radiant cheek.

And I would say a good lip and cheek. A nice pop of color here and there.”

“You know what, we’ve become such a big family after 10 years. So the crew and Stacy [London] and Clinton [Kelly] and Ted [Gibson]. It’s going to be really hard not seeing them every week.”

But Carmindy won’t be relaxing, even when the show concludes in July.

“I am working on my own makeup line, which launching probably the beginning of next year – Carmindy Beauty. I will let everyone know on so stay tuned!”

I am 68 years old and use foundation and blush every morning. However shortly after it looks like I am wearing nothing and I look pale and washed out. Also I have yet to find a lipstick that lasts. Then of course there are the wrinkles…….I just want to brighten my skin.
