Hands up if you ever watched TLC’s “What Not To Wear?” I was a big time fan of this makeover show back in the day. Besides the amazing transformations the participants would go through with their wardrobe and hairstyle, adding the perfect makeup to their new look was ultimately the best part. The lady responsible for those makeovers was Carmindy, a professional makeup artist based in NYC.
As a long time fan of hers, I was so excited when she immediately emailed me back regarding the idea of going to makeup school – way back in the beginning of 2010. She gave me the little push I needed to actually go through with it. Fast forward almost a decade and Carmindy is now a full fledged brand, working with companies like QVC to bring her products to the masses.
Thanks to fellow beauty blogger Caralyn Mirand’s recommendation, Carmindy’s line of makeup from QVC is now on our radar. We are certainly sold on everything that comes in her collection – that’s probably because it’s filled with simple products that enhance your natural beauty. As Carmindy states herself, “Welcome to stress-free beauty. I am taking the guess work out of it and streamlining your life creating, a numbered systems for your fundamental basic makeup wardrobe. You’ll look polished, painted. This is the natural look alternative.”
