You're only five minutes away from your most beautiful face—and celebrity makeup guru Carmindy is here to show you how to make those minutes fly!
The key to a gorgeous face isn't expensive cosmetics, complicated makeup regimens, or cluttering your bathroom counter with bottles and tubes—it's using the right products in the right places to enhance your own unique, natural beauty. We know what you're thinking: "Sounds simple, but how do I know what's right and where to put it?" Carmindy, makeup artist on TLC's hit show What Not to Wear, knows exactly what and where—and she's here to share her secrets.
Carmindy believes that the key to a great look is learning how to enhance your best features with sheer washes of color rather than hiding under layers of artificial-looking makeup. In 'The 5-Minute Face', Carmindy shares her beauty philosophy, offering a practical, easy, and always successful makeup routine that works for all ages and skin types.

In each chapter, Carmindy provides easy step-by-step instructions on perfecting the makeup technique that's right for your face, including tips on how to decide which products fit your skin tone and how to apply them for optimal results.
