Hi Kandee, you are a total inspiration for me.. I wish I could really have the courage to film some videos and respond but I'm so shy that you dont have an idea.. well, hopefully I'll be able to travel to LA to meet you, I really love make up but I know there is so much to learn and I trully beleive you are the best out there.. so please let me know details about the seminars (LA), and I will do everything in my end to attend... thanks for doing this.. you are awsome!!

Hi Kandee,

I just wanted to say that you really have given me alot of inspiration and confidence to do what i want to do.

I was hoping, if you have a spare minute, for you to email me with some information / tips on how to get started with the make up artist work, I am looking into some courses which are quite expensive but i am willing to invest if its something that will help... I am just not sure which is the best way to go.

I live in the UK and am trailing the internet for the products you recommend that they do not sell in the UK.

Thanks again and keep being gorgeous as always :)

Kandee, you have certainly planted the seed of confidence in me! I have never done a video but I will see if I can cook something up. You've put so much of yourself out there, I hope a lot of people do videos to give you something back!

Kandee, you are pretty!))))

Hello Kandee:) I just recently came across your cover girl pin up video on youtube the other day and decided to watch it. The video was amazing, then I realized you had tons of other videos so I watched almost all of them! Your such a gorgeous sweet person! Keep doing these videos I think they can really help a lot of people in some way or another:)!

Oh Kandee, you are so sweet. As I was watching this and seeing your enthusiam and passion I got a little teary eyed.

You've touched on something very curcial in what you said here. We (women) were created by God with an innate desire and need be adored . I have to recomend this book for you - I think you'd get a lot out of it as it really touches on this. It's called Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul by Stasi & John Eldredge. When you have a chance, check it out! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0785289097/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_2?pf_rd_p=304485901&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=1404103066&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0MFJGVK8JBBF7Q49B2AA

Hi Kandee,

I just wanted to ask you something thats been bugging me for a while. As a make up artist I know you do make up for all sorts of different occassions and companies etc. But I was wondering if as a freelancer you get to choose whether or not you want to do a particular company, for example I personally wouldn't feel comfortable doing make up for Playboy, just because I don't really believe in what they espouse and I know this is probably something thats way down the track but I'm just trying to figure out what kind of make up I would and wouldn't do.

Thanks heaps

You really are the sweetest person in the world! When I watched this current video of yours it almost brought ME to tears! It would be awesome to meet you someday and go shopping, a la Melrose Ave! But I am camera shy... However, good luck to everyone who participates! Your passion, knowledge, and optimism are truly a wonderful gift that you have given to all of us.

Thanks! :)

Miss Kandee, I just started watching your videos these past week or so and I absolutely, I love your make-ups tutorials, its just that I am really shy and I think they would not work for me, I am a teenager, I am actually a sophomore in high school, I cannot afford all the macs or most of the make-ups basically, but just looking at your videos, I just adore it. I consider myself pretty big (weight wise), but I have been told that I have a really pretty face, I just want to redefine it and your videos are helping me in progress. I really like your style (vintage-ish). I can say that I have pretty much the same style, I shop at thrift stores. My grandma who passed away, has some really cute vintage clothes, so I wore her cute tshirts. And so I wonder if you can come up with more natural natural looks. I am Asian, my eyes are considered chinky. I wonder if you can do a tutorial to brighten small eyes. Thank you. You are an amazing make-up artist and an amazing person in general, you look so sweet. I wonder if I could meet up with you and get some tips personally from you. I live in the San Bernardino county in Southern California. So I would really like to meet you one day. Thank you. Love always, Goldy.

Hi Kandee,
I found your videos on Thursday and have watched all of them! I've never posted a comment to anything on the web before but you moved me enough to set up an account just so I could tell you have fabulous you are!!! You are so open about advice, friendly and kind. Whatever goals you have in life, I am sure you will reach with your attitude and spirit.
Thanks for the tips and wonderfully entertaining videos!

kandee that story of yours was so beautiful and it brought tears to my my eyes. im so happy that you shared that
with us. i remeber when i was little and my parents would leave
me at home on my own and i would have nothing to eat and i would
stay home in the dark every night all on my own and i never would
go to school and i was younger then 7 years old. i lost my whole
education because i was to depressed do wake out of bed 2 go
to school i knew when i got home i had nothing to look foward too.
so my parents hated me bcause they thought i was a complete fool.
when they starrted there organic skincare company they would ignore me
all the time. i remeber when i was about 14 after my mum would be in
another country with her boyfriend leaving my brother take care of the
company, and my dad would be around the world looking for customers and . and then not leave me once cent 2 even eat and i would be embarrased 2 call a friend and ask to bring over toiler paper, they wuld bring over like half a bag of pasta or a can of tomato sauce because i hadnt ate in over a week,
people would find out that i was at home on my own and that i practily
didnt have my dad there. and i would
have men knock on my door at night time..i remeber my friends would come 2 my house
and tell other older guys how i didnt even have my parents around and they assumed
my house was perfect to hang out to do drugs and they would just walk into my house
without my permission..and i would start crying and tell them 2 just leave
and they would get angry and they smashed up all my windows and it was horrible feeling so alone and not having anyone there 2 even give me a hand. they take advantage becoz ur a girl and your young..with no brothers or dad around to protect me
then the police came and thought that i was starting trouble with people and inviting
them over because that was the story the guys made up and not one of those guys
ever got in trouble for it. i would get fone calls and people threatening to come in my house and kill me
i felt like my life was going no where..waking up every day feeling like a complete
mess . things only became worst and worst and my dream was to live in america
and become a makeup artist. it was my dream ever since i was young because it was
always just stuck in my head and i would say to my self as soon as i have a couple
of thousand dollers i dont care how i get it.. i am getting up and leaving today,
tommorow i dont care! i justt wanted to be away from everyone and everything.
i would talk to this guy on the internet and he was the only one i could talk to
to escape everything and he never even understanded what i was going thru it was
hard to talk about these things and it was extremely embarrasing to tell someone
that my parents didnt care for me well of course that is what everyone would think
if i told them the stuff that happand.
he lived in los angeles and i packed all my stuff and caught a plaine to L.A
but its realy hard being across the whole world with not 1 friend or family.
i have times thinking of making a youtube.. i think of makeup and having my own cosmetic
and natural skincare brand i read stuff on ingredients, harsh chemicals,
all of my knowledge comes from the internet , i dream of opening my own company
but i promise my self that when i have children of my own that ill give them
my attention and love and protect them ..whenever they need it. people in australia think i am super
crazy for getting up and leaving and running away from my problems. and i know they
think ill neveer get anywhere i am just with some man across the whole world
i admire you how you got where you are today doing youtube videos, i love you kandee and
i am so happy you spilled out your heart to us on youtube and thanks for letting me too. your a beautiful soul and your story made me cry when i watched your new video. your now my favourite person on youtube. *hugs* and *kisses* love lexy..i sent a video to u and i hope you liked it and im sorry it was so short.
