My favorite makeup "tool"; As valuable as the make-up itself!
This is by far the best "beauty" book I've ever read. I was looking for a way to "speed-up" how long it usually takes me. I'm not going to actually "admit" to the time; trust me, it would be embarrassing...lol. I can't think of anything the author didn't cover. It has everything I needed and best of all in the back of the book she mentions all the products you need and gives you "high" dollar and "low" dollar choices to fit everyone's budget. The "eyebrow" section was particularly helpful for me. It was very reasonably priced; but, if you're totally "broke" I would try to find a copy at your local library. However, once you read it I think you'll want your own personal copy for reference. This book deserves a five star rating.Read full review...
The 5 Minute Face by Carmindy
This is a very informative book, especially for beginners. There are a lot of tips for inexpensive ways to use make-up, skin care and tools. I've been around a long time and I tell you, the 5 minute face looked just as good as all the time I've spent on my face primping! I loved the way she put all the products she recommended at the end of the book with the expensive or cheaper option. I wish this book was printed 20 years ago!! Don't hesitate to buy this one, it's totally worth it and very easy to read!!:)Read full review...

CARMINDY IS BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED AND HAS A GREAT BOOK..
I WATCH WHAT NOT TO WEAR AND I ALWAYS LIKED CARMINDY AND HOW EASY SHE MADE APPLYING MAKE-UP... I HAVE READ HER BOOK AND UNDERLINED CERTAIN PARTS. SHE COVERS ALL MAKEUP ANY FEMALE WOULD NEED... I PLAN ON PURCHASING A COUPLE OF THE PRODUCTS THAT SHE USES BOTH ON TV AND IN HER BOOK.. CARMINDY HAS A GREAT BACKGROUND AND YOU LOOK AT THE WAY HER MAKE-UP IS APPLIED AND SHE LOOKS SO GORGEOUS AND NATURAL... CARMINDY IS MY FAVORITE PART OF THE SHOW... I ALSO PURCHASED THE BOOK FOR MY DAUGHTER FOR HER BIRTHDAY.... HER BOOK IS EASY TO FOLLOW AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT TO FOLLOW HER DIRECTIONS. I AM EXTREMELY INTERESTED IN THE AIR FLASH FOUNDATION.. I DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE SHE HAD A BOOK OUT AND WHAT BETTER PLACE TO CHECK WAS EBAY, BECAUSE IF IT IS OUT THERE YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND IT ON EBAY...Read full review...
best for beginners
i love carmindy on the show, i love her tips, i thought this book was a natural purchase. it is very nicely done with helpful tips on what to wear for your age (20's-60's).
however, i was looking for a book on technique. which i did not get here.
this really covers a simple, everyday face. just as the title implies. i use this book to introduce my not makeup savy friends to a better way to do their makeup. but for me, an intermediate makeup do-er.....not so much.Read full review...
this is a good book, you should have it!
First, my sister- in - law she borrowed this book at library. I read several pages in it and i totally love this book. That's why i found and purchased one . I could compare this book with the one of SEPHORA publishing, of course the 5 MINUTE FACE BY CARMINDY is better.Read full review...
Tells you all you need to know
Have learned much from Carmindy on "What Not To Wear". Her book is an excellent guide to using makeup fast and easy.
