Great make-up tips are hard to find. You can ask your best friends or maybe look up a tutorial on YouTube, but when it comes to getting top notch, professional advice from a professional make-up artist, there’s only one woman to go to — Carmindy. You may have seen her making ladies look fabulous on TLC’s What Not to Wear, but now she’s giving us the tips every twenty-something needs.

What are your go-to products that are easy to apply in the morning when you’re in a hurry, but still want to have a gorgeous, flawless look for school or work?

My Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Your Skin Makeup in Creamy Beige, Sheerest Cream Blush in Bloom, Forever Stay Moisture Gloss in Playful Pink, Fresh Satin Luster Palette, Mac Blot Powder in Medium and Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara.

What advice do you have for those who want to easily change their day look to a look for a night out on the town?

A swipe of liquid liner can turn a day face to a night look in a flash, or a bold, bright lip color applied with daytime eyes make a great evening statement.

What is one beauty product that you can’t live without?

Creme De La Mer. I slather it on and it’s my one splurge.

What brands do you recommend for women who are tight on a budget and can’t afford really expensive make-up products?

The drugstore has everything you need!

We saw you have a new App out! What made you want to create an App and what benefits will we receive from downloading it?

I wanted to help women with their number one issue, which is finding the perfect shades for their unique skin tones and where to buy them. I custom created each and every universal look with the right shades when you avatar yourself and you can immediately purchase the products with a tap of the finger at or linked with the App.

What advice do you have for women who want to follow in your footsteps of being a professional make-up artist?

Learn to look at beauty in all forms and do as many different faces as possible! Be an apprentice as learning from your predecessors is the best school there is!
