Beachy Golds (nice for the blue eyes too)

Some business...was tearing me away from my bloggings....
and my computer said it was going to take 1,392 minutes to upload a video....
and I am not exaggerating - that is the number it really said!!!

but finally...here is the the requested...beachy make-up look....which also happens to be fantastic for all the blue-eyed folks....

golds look so amazing against blue eyes.....now, don't go getting sad if you own a pair of brown eyes like myself....
this look is super flattering on every eyeball color....

I have to go finish packing and hop in my hot rod.......ha ha ha ha

oh, 
color options I used:
eyeshadows:
SASS from BENEFIT (a buttery yellow shimmer)
SIN or CHOPPER from URBAN DECAY (peach gold shimmer...and a copper gold shimmer)
GOLDMINE from MAC  (a bright yellow-gold shimmer)
LUSCIOUS LANI from the SHADY LADY PALETTE

eyeliner: 
POWER SURGE from MAC (a gold bronze eyeliner)

CHEEKS: POSEY cream blush from MAC (a hot pink color...love it!)
SHELL cream highlighter from MAC (my fav....peachy-pink frost)
BENEFIT 10 highlighter set....
ou can always swipe on some BLUNT from MAC to contour

LIPS: a nude gloss that will make you look uber-tan....
GOLDYROCKS from MAC (a goldy-green...super good for making your lips look pale..
LUMINARY from MAC (a pearly-whitish gloss)
any nude pinky-gloss will look great.....
enjoy....and I'll be posting things from the road! 
giant love from my heart to yours...smiles....your friend..kandee!

Hi Kandee!

Thanks! :) Loved this one!

I love all your makeup looks and this one is soo pretty. Could you do a look for brown eyes. I know they say that brown eyes can pull off anything but maybe somethin that really makes them sparkle. And dont listen to people about the eyebrows they are really pretty and give you more space to show off the gorgeous makeup you pull off beautifuly!(kind of like marilyn monroes which by the way I love the makeup you did on her!)

Hey Kandee!!:),
I really love your videos and I find them extremely helpful.I would really love for you to do a video for hazel eyes.Like you, I have very dark hair,medium skin and hazel eyes. I would love to be able to bring out the green in my eyes using eyeshadows. Thanks so much for everything..take care=)

JENNA: apparently rubbing petroleum jelly on your eyelashes makes them grow so you can try that....
and surely by 'three little ones' she doesn't mean CHILDREN?!?!

chaigyaru said...

i love the look AND all your other looks :)

hey kandee, do you think you can rec me a foundation primer?

Can I tell you that I love your blog!! In the past 2 years I have gained a ton of weight and trying to look cute was always one of my things. Especially with make-up and hair. (that may sound conceded but it's what gave me confidence) I stopped for a while due to gaining weight until recently when I seen your blog. You made me feel better about myself and have given me that confidence to looking cute again even though I'm not as skinny as I use to be. Your make-up tricks are awesome and I think you are all in all adorable!! Thank you so much!!!

Samara said...

Hey Kandee, could you tell us where you got the chain necklace you're wearing in the beachy picture? I am in love with it!

Shorty said...

Thank you soooo much for another great make up idea and tutorial. Love them all! I've got a question for you, but I'll send it via email. Perhaps it can make it into the June Q & A session. And, btw, I'm totally posting about your blog on my blog tomorrow (Wednesday)!!!! Check it out if you have a chance!

Have a great day and thanks again for ALL of your advice!!!

hello!!!!


I just discover your blog and let me tell you that you are a great artist! All your makeups are beautiful. My name is Alexandra and I live in Paris. Bye!

Chiara said...

I bought GOLDYROCKS on saturday and I really, really love it! It's my first MAC lipgloss, since I've never been to a MAC store before ;P
Anyway, I also wanted to say that I love your videos, you're a great inspiration :)
Cheers from Italy!

Kate said...

Hi Kandee
Do you have any tips on how to fill in your eyebrows? Mine are quite sparse towards my nose, and if I fill them in with brow powder it looks like I have two dark caterpillars on my face! I have quite thick ones but naturally so that I can't pluck any more otherwise it'll look silly! Appreciate any advice.

Kate said...

No worries I found your eyebrow video yay!

Linda said...

Hey Kandee! I am absolutely inlove with your blog, and you are an amazing inspiration for me! You are so full of life and optimistic and energetic and every time Im watching your videos I feel like I am kind of charging my energy tank! lol Weird eh? But thats how I feel, makes me alot happier and optimistic! I learned so many things from you, I am 30 and never knew how to properly use eyeshadow before, all I did was eyeliner and maybe some grey or brown on top of it, ugh! Now I bought a bunch of new makeup and brushes and Im so happy, I always loved drawing and art but never had the chance to actually learn so much about makeup :) And finally my eyebrows look good! I used to HATE them and never been able to really shape them properly, always ended up with them looking like being eaten by birds! Thank you so much for all these videos, I hope you will keep posting for us! You are a total sweetheart!
Kisses from Germany,
Linda

I really need to know what the best makeup remover is. The Ponds wipes make my face break out and the Maybelline makeup remover that is clear is what has worked the best for me, but it still doesn't work that well! I always end up with eyeliner and mascara left on my face.

I love the neaclace, I'm sure other people found it very cool as well here is the link to buy a chain that is very similar its only $20.00 http://www.icedoutgear.com/ch20.php

I'm leaving for vacation in a week and wondered if you could do your next video for quick beach makeup if you are actually going to get in water. Thanks so much, you're great!

Hi Kandee!

I stumbled onto your blogs about a week ago and have to say you are an absolute inspiration!

You have 3 gorgeous children and manage to have so much energy, and your videos are such a delight to watch.

You have re-affirmed my love of makeup and I look forward to being an avid follower of your blogs (and I hope you continue to update Kandeeland- the love that pours out of you for your children is so refreshing).

I had a couple of requests that I thought would be interesting: I was wondering if you knew any good face products that men can use. I know men are typically clueless and I would love to help my fiancee with his sometimes dry and sometimes oily skin problems. I would also love a look that would make green eyes really pop- I have very fiercely green eyes that sometimes get overpowered by the makeup and end up looking hazel-blue.

Sorry this is so long- I'm not sure what "procedure" is like with blogs haha- I'm still new to this whole thing and wish I knew how to not be "anonymous" haha.

Keep being your creative, amazing, inspirational self!

I recently had a REALLY bad reaction to a face cream and my face was covered in tiny, fire red bumps! I don't normally use concealer and was so lost with what to do, and then I saw you really recommended the Laura Mercier- and I have to thank you soooo much! It covered everything! Not an ounce of redness and you could barely tell my face was bumpy! I'll use this stuff for the rest of my life- its so fabulous.

Your advice is amazing! Thank you again!!! I was able to leave the house because of you (HAHAHAHA)!

sarahdanielsMUA said...

Kandee! I also love your advice! Great work! I'm starting school soon(thanks to you making me realize I can do what I love!)

Hi Kandee!

I recently stumbled across your blog (thank goodness!), and just wanted to let you know I've watched ALL of your videos in the past two days and can't wait to watch whatever else you do.

You have such a friendly demeanor and I was wondering if you have your own line, and if not have you thought about it? Surely your popularity on the internet has gained you some recognition? :)

I've let everyone I know know about your videos because they are so helpful! Since I've watched I've finally managed to achieve a pretty good looking smokey eye! lol

Thanks so much Kandee! Keep it up! :)

Hi Kandee!! Definitly a look that can be worn ON the beach would be great!! i am headed off on my honeymoon in a few weeks. I notice in pics that I always look so washed out since I wear spf on my face. Any tips for a natural, pretty, glowy look?

Debi said...

Hi Kandee,

Would you please do a video on corrective makeup? Which colors and products counteract different discolorations on the skin for an even look (especially under eyes, but all areas)?

What is the best product for hiding blemishes, and how do you apply it?

Thank you for your help!

Kindly,
Debi

Cynthia said...

Hey Kandee! Can you do a segment on small eyes? I know you have big beautiful eyes but as you can probably see from my profile picture mine are small. I've tried your eye makeup tricks and they're GREAT but I can't seem to keep my under eye make on without it smudging. I have extremely dark circles under my eyes due to my nationality which makes me need under eye cover up but it seems to smudge my eye makeup. HELP!

Hi Kandee,
Thank you so much for you posts, they are totally helpful and you are super nice. I have a question and it's a bit embarrassing to ask..but it seems to me it's even more embarrassing that my boyfriend pointed me out. How do you get such white/smooth armpits? Do you just shave? I'm reading up on some research but a lot of people complain with their methods..and I've seen some people I know with white armpits but it's weird asking them. Please let me know- thanks!

papri said...

Hi Kandee! I've been following your videos and blogs for a few weeks now and your talent and attitude are just inspirational :)

I was wondering if your could do a series of videos for people of different skin tones, and what colours/bases suit them - so like Indian complexions and so on. Whenever I go to make up stores (even MAC) they never really manage to get a powder that works just right so you'd be a life saver!

take care, and thanks for your hard work! xx

Heyy Kandee, i think it would be cool if yew can do your make up and hair like Melissa Marie from The Millionaires. :D

Kayla said...

Hey Kandee I love love love your stuff! On the Hills I always notice that their skin looks super dewy and their lips look uber shiny. Is there any way you could dry and do a super moisturized look like that? Thanks! Keep up the great stuff!

heyhey
I was wondering if you could do a video on ashley tisdale's make up in "suddenly" and "it's alright, it's ok"
and one more thing, i have a lot of rednes in my skin, do you know any products that i can use?

Ann said...

Hi Kandee!! I absolutely LOVE your videos and blog--you're so incredibly talented and I love your upbeat, sunny personality--you just make me smile watching your vids.

I do have a request--I love your looks, but as a 40-something, I'm not sure that I can always carry them off. Could you give some tips for those of us over 40? Thanks much--you're awesome!!!

Hey Kandee,
I just wanted to let you know I think it's really impressive that you find time to do all of the things in your busy day! I really loved this post and I was wondering if you could do wedding day makeup, but a really natural look. Also, what is a good choice of powder or foundation if u want it to work with your skin color all year long?

rachel & jean said...
