In The 5-Minute Face—now with an all-new updated Shopping Guide—Carmindy shares her positive beauty philosophy. She offers a practical, easy, fast, and mistake-proof makeup routine that works for all ages and skin types.

Each chapter contains valuable advice on perfecting the makeup technique that's right for your face—and includes product tips and “toolbox” sections describing the best implements to use with each type of makeup. And there's more:

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good book, beautiful pictures This book is a good starter book for makeup ideas, but it's lacking in application techniques. It has a lot of colour suggestions, and the best tools to use, but I wished it had pictures on how to apply the makeup. Otherwise, very useful, and the pictures are amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought this book for my teenage niece who watches Carmindy on What Not To Wear. She is absolutely delighted to put her icon's makeup tips into everyday practice. With her busy schedule, a 5 minute guide is perfect. I would certainly recommend this book to every woman who enjoys wearing makeup.
