Best known for her makeup tips and tricks on TLC’s hit show What Not to Wear, Carmindy is a renowned makeup artist celebrated for her dramatic beauty metamorphoses. While Carmindy boasts an A-list clientele, her mission is to help everyday women be their most beautiful. Her essential role on What Not to Wear is to help real women feel as confident about their looks as they do about their new style.
Carmindy’s work can be seen on the editorial pages of magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, InStyle, O, Essence, Self, Lucky, Seventeen, Marie Claire, and Glamour. Carmindy also does the makeup for Clairol, Aveeno, Bath and Body Works, Crest Whitestrips, and Q-Tips ad campaigns.
Her first book, The 5-Minute Face: The Quick & Easy Makeup Guide for Every Woman came out in 2007. In addition to her freelance beauty writing, Carmindy has released two more books, Get Positively Beautiful and Crazy Busy Beautiful, featuring the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Cosmetics line for which her work was the inspiration.
Carmindy developed a natural beauty line with Sally Hansen. Drawing on her years of experience bringing out the hidden beauty in real women, Carmindy created products designed to enhance women’s natural beauty with natural ingredients. The line, Sally Hansen Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy, debuted in 2008.
After years of traveling to fashion destinations around the world, Carmindy settled in New York City, where she has established herself as a top makeup artist.
