What's New in Version 4.1
*Bugs have been fixed to prevent crashing.
I really do love this app, it's helped me a lot in applying/purchasing makeup. She has tutorial step-by-step application videos which are awesome, written out steps and an illustration of what it should look like. There are also product lists, and although that should be incredibly useful all the products are from her line (which is nonexistent, I've searched everywhere!) and the alternatives are wicked expensive (usually from sephora, mac, etc). Honestly though, that is the only small issue I have with the app. By watching the tutorial you should be able to find a product in your local drugstore that is similar and in your price range (I recommend looking into NYC/e.l.f. If you're looking for cheaper options that are great! They have a great luminous primer and highlighter that together are less than $10). Anyways, it's a great app! The extra tips/tricks videos really help as well :)
Fun-but why do the products change?
This is fun to see the different looks, but I don't understand why the recommended products change it seems fairly frequently. Also, I wish there were more choices for skin tones. Still, worth having. I have bought some of the recommended products, and been pleased with most. Definitely like the eye shadow and blush color/product suggestions!
The only reason I've ever used makeup is for dance recitals, so I've only known how to apply it thick and dark so that you don't look washed out on stage. Carmindy's app has given me a lot of good tips for getting started wearing it for everyday use. My biggest complaint is not being able to get her products that are listed under each step. The highlighting products and eye products that I have found are not that great, and I really want to get the ones in the app. But after searching for a long time, I haven't found Carmindy's products.
