Everyday Beauty. Millions of viewers tuned in to watch makeup artist Carmindy teach them about the latest makeup tips and tricks on probably what was the most popular makeover show to date---What Not To Wear. Though she had tons of top notch experience under her belt working on the world’s most famous faces and photo spreads, Carmindy was still relatable. Carmindy's long anticipated line for QVC launches next week, and we sit down to discuss it all, including her signature and much-anticipated 5 Minute Face collection. Carmindy and StoryAndRain.com Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Tamara, go way back to the days when she was a fashion editor at Cosmo, and Carmindy was doing the makeup for a lot of the magazine's top photo shoots. On this podcast, we discuss how she got her start, her incredible talent for being an on camera expert (not everyone has what it takes, and it’s not as easy as it looks), her career highs and lows, trusting the wrong people in business and much more to be inspired by.
"I had an intuition with people, and I could read the room and I could read the talent, or the photographer, or the editor, and I could adjust my personality based on what they needed. That's something you have to do. It has no reflection on you. It's not like you're doing yourself a disservice. What you're doing is getting the job done, and everybody has to work in tandem." - Carmindy
"I see beauty in every form. I see beauty in sound, and color, and personality, and laughter, an eyebrow, or a strange nose, or a quirky smile, or a crooked tooth. I see beauty so differently than most makeup artists that just want to chisel you with contour and make you into a clone of what's conventionally pretty." - Carmindy
