MORE about Kandee… What we all love about her most!!
First off, as for Kandee’s YouTube career, her videos are absolutely THE BEST make up and beauty videos on the internet!! Her videos are so addicting— I’ll click on one and 3 hours later be like, how is it exactly that I am even on video 27 right now?? (I can’t be the only one, right Fandees??) Each video is so perfect, from the lighting to the lovely background (I especially love her twinkle lights!) to her bubbly personality. She makes putting on makeup seem like so much fun instead of a daily hassle, and like a true form of art and self-expression that anyone can perform on their own face. She gives me so much confidence to actually try new looks and experiment with makeup and fashion, and to be myself and stand out! Her everyday princess looks are so perfect, I can never decide which one is my favorite. In fact, that’s the way I feel about all of her looks! There is just something special about her videos. Obviously she is flat out gorgeous, but the thing that I love about her videos the most is how at the end of each one, she takes the time to encourage her viewers, and we can tell that she really does live to inspire, encourage, and make us all feel special and loved! She really breaks the barrier between celebrities and fans, because she reaches out to us and really means it when she calls us the Kandee Family. She is always so intentional about actually answering our comments and responding to us on Instagram, Twitter, and of course YouTube. Who else takes so much time and gives so much effort to make their viewers feel so loved, cared for, and uniquely special and amazing?? She is seriously the best!
The bright light that she shines is so contagious, and she always leaves us viewers with a happy glow and the inspiration to spread that light in our own worlds outside of YouTube. I know so many of you know the fuzzy warm feeling I’m talking about! Every time I click onto her channel, I feel so inspired and encouraged, and that’s all in addition to the expert beauty knowledge that I’m gaining with each video!! Her channel is called the happiest place on the internet for a good reason! Her genuine kindness is constantly improving so many lives of so many people all around the world on a daily basis. I know you guys feel the same way! She puts a smile on our faces with every video, making us laugh with her adorably quirky personality, and telling us how LOVED we are, and then encouraging us to go and share that smile with someone else, and they will pass it to someone else, and pretty soon one video has made a pretty spectacular impact on the world!!
As we all know, Kandee is not only an inspiration as a beauty and makeup guru, but as a wonderful mother of 4! How does she do it all?? Her children, Jordan, Alani, Blake, and Ellie are the loves of her life, and they always come first. Plus, they are such cuties!! Kandee and her children live in the breathtaking Lake Tahoe, California, and as you can see from her videos and blog posts, are one of the sweetest families on the web. Family goals!!
I love how she makes time to first be a great mom before pouring out her energy and attention to all of us on the internet. I don’t know how she does it, but she has so much to give and I’m so thankful for her! As her fans, it’s so much fun for us to see her kiddos and her mom on her Youtube channels and on her mommy blog, as well as her Instagram. Even though she can’t post very many pictures of her children anymore, we love hearing about them, and the occasional photo is even more special! Being a single mother of four is extremely challenging, and I’m sure it’s made all the more complicated by having such a public life, but Kandee handles it so well and exudes nothing but love to both her children and her fans. She makes us all a part of her close knit little unit by welcoming us into the Kandee Family!! 🙂
How did Kandee start out??
How did she start out?? First, she was a celebrity makeup artist to on movie sets, commercial shoots, and show sets. She has pictures with celebs like Conan O’Brien, Janice Dickinson, and more. After a so many clients and people in her life asking for makeup tips, she decided to share them freely with anyone who wanted to learn on her very own YouTube channel, and the rest it history! She said that she had no idea just how many people would end up watching, and her humble spirit shows in her videos. You can tell just how sincere she is when she explains how all she wants to do is help people feel amazing, strong, confident, beautiful, and of course, loved!!! That sincerity coupled with her insane amount of talent is exactly what got her to where she is now, and will continue to get her further and further in her life. Keep it up, babe!!
As for her love life, she is currently dating musician and YouTuber Michael Castro. The two of them are SO adorable, and can be spotted jet-setting to tropical locations, eating fancy-shmancy foods that look way too yummy, working out together, making vlogs together, and always making us laugh! Talk about hilarious banter! Seriously, watching the videos they make together has me laughing so hard that half the time I’m in tears. Seeing the way they interact is hilarious and sweet at the same time, which is a pretty fantastic combination in my opinion! Kandee Johnson’s boyfriend provides the perfect yin to her yang, and together they make the cutest internet couple on the web, hands down. Following their blogs helps us get to see what her life is really like, providing a sneak peak into what her days look like and showing even more of her actual personality! She is just a GEM.
INSIDE KANDEE JOHNSON INFO!!!!
I have met Kandee Johnson in real life, which means that yes, I have received an ACTUAL HUGE KANDEE HUG (!!!) but don’t be too jealous! I want to let the entire Kandee Family know just how genuine she is, and that the Kandee that you know and love is the REAL Kandee, without a doubt. The way that we see her in her videos and in the life messages that she sends is an exact reflection of her real-life self and how she acts not matter where she is, camera or no camera!! She is such a sweet person with an actual glow around her. She adds sparkle to the world, and isn’t satisfied until she has made everyone’s day! Whenever I met her, she made me feel so special and even touched up my makeup right there on the spot without me even asking, just as a gesture of kindness!! She is such a bright light in the world, online and off, and the lucky few of us who have met her can surely attest to that!!
Okay guys, can we all just agree that Kandee’s selfies are on FLEEK?!?! She is completely flawless! Her Instagram is so perfect, and I love how she shares fan art on her feed! Just another example of her being awesome and actually caring for her fans. 🙂 In fact, she replies to so many comments and even comments on a lot of our photos!
My favorite thing about Kandee’s Instagram (and even videos!) is that mixed in with all of the physical beauty inspiration, she also posts things with so much meaning that help people struggling with all kinds of hardships. Bullying, self-doubt, sadness, anger, feeling overwhelmed, all of these topics are addressed. She is so transparent and doesn’t try to put on a front like she is perfect and has it all together (even though, let’s be real here, she is pretty dang close!! <3) and that is so beautiful.
That being said, her pictures are Instagram GOALS!! She is so beautiful inside and out, and she gives us so many extra tips and ideas in her pictures! It’s like a little glimpse into her world, plus some fierce selfies! What could be better?
Kandee is so unique, and such a trendsetter. Not only with make up, but her fashion is on point. She always dresses to express herself, and she looks so cute doing it! I personally am in love with her giant hoop earrings!
Okay, how on EARTH does she go from looking like regular gorgeous Kandee to looking like Maleficent right before our eyes!?? Kandee takes makeup to a new level. It’s not just for beauty at this point, but actual transformation. Watching her turn herself into Barbie, Angelina Jolie, Ruby Rose, Edward Scissorhands, Snow White, and even a black and white Marilyn Monroe painting is like watching a real life magic show!! She is a genius! This woman is an artist in every sense of the word. It takes so much talent to take regular makeup products that many of us have in our own bags at home and literally use her face as a canvas for art, turning it into whatever shape, color, and design she puts her mind to. It’s one thing to be able to paint on flat paper, but to paint someone ELSE’S face over her own?? She is amazing! The first time I saw a transformation video by her, my jaw literally dropped. She captures the essence of each person she becomes, down to the tiniest detail!
Kandee Johnson is an absolute inspiration in ever possible way, from makeup and skincare, to personality, to mommyhood, to fashion and beauty, and even in how to treat those around us. She is an incredibly kind and talented individual, and the world is a better place with her shining her beautiful light in it! Let’s try to make her proud on the Kandee Johnson Fan Site by showing love to and spreading happiness and beauty with everyone we meet, just like she does. 🙂 We love you, Kandee Johnson!!!!!
