Freebie Friday: Win One Of Five Copies Of Carmindy’s New Book

October 24, 2008 by Rebekah

This week, we’re giving away five copies of Get Positively Beautiful: The Ultimate Guide to Looking and Feeling Gorgeous, the new book by celebrity makeup artist and What Not To Wear regular Carmindy. To make sure you know how helpful this book really is, she went ahead and wrote you all five very solid beauty tips.

After you read these, tell us the most indispensable beauty advice you ever got below, and we’ll enter you for a chance to win the book.

Here are Carmindy’s tips for SheFinds readers:

1. When it comes to playing up the eyes, opposites attract. Choose eyeliner shades that are opposite to your eye color to really make your eyes stand out. If you have blue eyes, go for chocolate brown; for brown eyes, choose sapphire blue; green eyes look amazing with plum liner; and hazel eyes come alive with forest green.

2. When using a bronzer don't apply it all over your face, instead strategically place it on the temples and along the hairline, sweeping under the cheekbone. This will give you a sun-kissed natural looking contour. Try Sally Hansen Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy Sun Glow Powder Bronzer.

3. Never use makeup to change or correct your wrongly perceived flaws. These differences make you unique so find your best feature and use makeup to enhance your natural beauty. If lips are your feature focus try a strong red lip. If eyes are your best feature go for a smoky eye and if skin is your best feature play it up with a highlight glow. If your cheeks are incredible, play with a bright cream blush.

4. To enhance your lip shape dab a little highlighter on the cupid's bow of the upper lip and a dab on the bottom of the lower lip for a fabulous pout.

5. When applying false lashes snip a pair in half and use only the smaller section at the outer corners of your eyes for a natural flirty fringe.
