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’s work can be seen on the editorial pages of leading magazines such as Self, Cosmopolitan, Conde Nast Traveler, Town and Country, InStyle, O, Essence, Lucky, Seventeen, Marie Claire, Glamour and many more. She is the author of 4 best selling beauty books titled The 5 Minute Face, Get Positively Beautiful, Crazy Busy Beautiful and Bloom. She has consulted for major beauty brands and has been a beauty empowerment speaker across the country.
