Overview

Women today are crazy busy. And they want to be beautiful!

Beauty can be overwhelming. Walk by any cosmetics counter or into any drugstore and you're suddenly surrounded by thousands of products promising to make you look younger, fuller, lusher, thicker, and just about every other "er" you can think of. It sounds too good to be true and most of it is. But who has the time to navigate though all the beauty myths out there (or even her own makeup bag!) to find the tricks that will help you be your most beautiful? Is it really that hard to look and feel your best?

Not anymore! Carmindy, the makeup artist on TLC's hit show What Not to Wear, is opening her beauty treasure chest and sharing more than 600 beauty tips and secrets she's learned on the show and during her years as a makeup artist across the globe. Try these tips from Carmindy:

  • Blackheads be gone! Elmer's Glue is just as good as a pore strip for removing blackheads from your nose.
  • Forgot to pack your eyeliner? In a pinch, mascara can pull double duty as eyeliner. Use a brush to pick up a little color from the mascara wand and smudge it into the lash line.
  • Can't get that last bit of blush to come off? Swipe a cotton ball dipped in mineral oil across stubborn makeup. It will melt off.
  • Traumatized by age spots that just won't go away? Put lemon juice on age spots at night to help fade them. But never apply lemon juice to the skin right before sun exposure.

    Deserves 5 stars but...

    I would love to give this book five stars but title deceived me. Since I am a full time student and hold a full time job, I thought this book was just what I needed and that my prayers have been answered but I was wrong.

    The book is titled "Crazy Busy Beautiful" so I thought it was a guide on how to make yourself look pretty fast but the book was mainly about how to make beauty products with ingredients from your kitchen and fix little problems you encounter with a few tips on how to make yourself look pretty fast here and there... just a few of them.

    I loved it how it was fast to read and it has so many tips. Must tips are basic stuff to live by.

    In general, I loved the book and it is a keeper. I just think the title should be more clear on what the book is really about.

    Crazy Busy Beautiful/Looking for names

    I absolutely loved reading this book. It gives all sorts of helpful hints on how to care for your face by using reasonable and everyday products. Sometimes even items you have at home like vinegar, cornmeal, and even sugar as a facial scrub. It's compact so travels well. The only minus is that sometimes it mentions products that you may not be sure of. In other words, there are no product names/endorsements so you don't always know what to look for in the stores.
    Otherwise, it's a fun boom to read. By the way, there is a Content page but no real index so you can skip pages to find a specific topic especially if you're in a rush. So, take the time to read and mark the pages you might have a need for later.
