Win-It Wednesday: Crazy Busy Beautiful by Carmindy + Makeup Kit (2 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 31, 2010 · 663 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting several 24-hour giveaways throughout the day to give you plenty of chances to win!

I've always admired Carmindy's effortless style and simple beauty tips on TLC's What Not To Wear, so I was super excited to hear that she's publishing a book, Crazy Busy Beautiful: Beauty Secrets for Getting Gorgeous Fast. As I expected, Carmindy delivers simple and easy beauty tips that will work for all women, but what really won me over were her "Moneysaver" tips liberally sprinkled throughout the book, like creating your own tinted moisturizer by mixing your regular foundation with a SPF-infused moisturizer and mixing a drop of red food coloring with a bit of clear lip balm for a quick and easy cream blush.

I also had the opportunity to try several cosmetics from Carmindy's new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty line. My favorite is the Fast Fix Eyeshadow Base. My eyeshadow never seems to stay on very long, and this kept it looking fresh all day long.

Two lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a gift pack including a copy of Carmindy's book Crazy Busy Beautiful and a set from the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty line.

To enter, tell me what makeup, if any, you absolutely must have on before you leave the house. Do you always wear lipstick, or do you just need mascara to feel presentable?
