Kandee Johnson, aka KandeeJ, is an amazingly talented makeup artist, whose beautifully creative work is undeniable. Her transformations, into very famous people, from her astounding Marilyn Monroe to her manly Johnny Depp, and everything in between, will leave you speechless. I am blown away by her transformation into Angelina Jolie. She looks more like Angelina than the real Agelina does! Her princess transformations will make your jaw drop, and her Barbie transformation is crazy! You can watch her transform James Corden into Barbie on the Late Late Show.
Great news for the rest of us is that Kandee tirelessly creates step by step makeup video tutorials for the rest of us, teaching us how to create flawless beauty looks for any occasion on our very own faces. Her instructions are thorough, easy to see, and easy to follow. She manages to bring out the artist in all of us!
Kandee is much more than an amazing artist, and though we love her for helping look more beautiful, it is much more important to her to help us feel special and loved. Her heart is full of kindness. One of her favorite sayings is one that she gathered from the advice of her dad, who taught her the importance of making people smile and laugh. I can tell you that Kandee is good at those things, and truly does mean it when she gives you her mantra.
“You’re more beautiful than you know. More talented than you think. And more loved than you can imagine”!
Whether you are in the actual presence of Kandee, or you are watching her on videos or television, her loving and encouraging spirit shine through her obvious outward beauty, lighting up the room.
KandeeJ works crazy long hours, way into the wee hours, to bring us all of her tutorials, blogs, and tips. She spends countless hours responding to her fans, we call ourselves “Fandees,” on her many social sites. She has told us that she usually gets by on about 4 hours of sleep a night, which we know isn’t the best for her, but it is necessary to maintain all that she has to do. She does live the jet-set lifestyle for sure!
Kandee was born in a suburb of Los Angeles, where she began her career as a makeup artist. She is such a natural artist, that it wasn’t long until she began doing makeup for celebrities. Her work on the faces of so many famous actors, models, and other performers soon showed up in commercials, tv shows, special celebrity appearances, and even movies. You certainly don’t get those gigs unless you are among the very best, which we all know that our own Kandee, aka KandeeJ, is.
During those years, she also became the doting mother of four wonderful children. Her role as an involved single mother of four would be crazy enough without all of the demands of her career. She is a great mom. Her kids adore her, and she works late into the night so that she can spend time doing fun things with her kids, as well as nurturing and caring for all of their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs; all while sole income provider for her sweet family. Maybe she really is Wonder Woman!
Recently, Kandee was chosen to be honored as one of the top YouTubers by James Corden, on the Late Late show. It was so much fun to see her talents recognized in such a big way! A video featuring some her best transformations, as well as a whole segment where she transformed James Corden into Barbie (along with her awesome personality, of course), really made Kandee a standout. We think she stole the show! 🙂
Kandee began blogging in 2008, then in 2009, she began her YouTube channel, which has grown to over 3 million subscribers! We love to help that number at least double by letting more and more people know how much she can teach us!
Kandee is humbled by all of the love and support of her fans, and wants the best for every one of us. Currently there are some new and exciting ventures on the way, both personal and professional, so check back often for the latest news! We love our KanndeeJ!
Check back for the latest! Love you guys!
Happy beautiful life!
