Required Reading- Carmindy Crazy Busy Beautiful

A gal after my own heart, Carmindy has taken on the monumental task of teaching beauty newbies and vetted artists alike how to get pretty on the quick and easy with Crazy Busy Beautiful.


Chock full of helpful tips, CBB is broken down into topics that have you covered from head (foundation) to toe (body skincare). Not stopping at simply offering up her own advice, Carmindy has reached out to readers, clients, and others in the field to contribute their own personal tidbits including tips, wacky rituals, and questions for Carmindy. The sections are broken down into categories that include moneysavers (budget finds), seasonal beauty (ways to customize your routine based on the season), and even glamazon tips (ways to take beauty to the next level).

My favorite feature is the sections sprinkled throughout called "The Nasties", which highlight beauty problems and tell you how to deal with/treat/prevent them. From fighting a hangover to hiding sunburn- beauty blunders are a thing of the past with these sections as essential beauty troubleshooting.

If you are looking to brush up on your beauty iq, or teach yourself something new entirely- Crazy Busy Beautiful is required reading for sure. It is easy enough to be understood by the beauty newcomer, while being comprehensive and complete enough for beauty know-it-alls to enjoy as well. You can find the book on Amazon, at Barnes and Noble, and anywhere else great books are sold.

Just for one moment, let us marvel over how utterly flawless Carmindy herself is. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting her in person at her book launch, and I can honestly say that she is both stunning and sweet. Here is an artist that practice what she preaches?


Are you familiar with Carmindy? Will you read the book?

How fun! I'd LOVE to meet her! She did email me once though! :D YEARS ago when the show first started I emailed her and asked her what kind of brushes she was using and she emailed me back and told me. Really sweet! :-)

Krasey Beauty said...

Lipgloss, she is absolutely wonderful. The fact that she personally responded speaks volumes about her, doesn't it? :)

LipGlossGossip said...

It does! I was really happy and appreciated that she took the time to email me back! :-)
