New York here I come!!!!

I've never been to New York, so I am so excited!!! My sister won a YM magazine Covergirl contest in high school...and she got to go....I thought she had a ticket for a companion and I was so excited....but alas...they only wanted her there, not her overly-excited sister! ha ha ha ha

I love every movie filmed there....I have dreamed about living there and feeling the energy vibrating off every wall and sidewalk....I can't wait!!!

Soooo, since someone did a break down of the most requested Glaminar cities....NY won, hands down.  We are working on locking dates in...most likely the end of July or beginning of August. 

And I want to know what you guys would most like to learn...
how to get into make-up artistry as a profession
how to just look beautiful, all the things you never learned about make-up
how to get into bridal make-up (it's one of the most lucrative out there)
please let me know, because this is for you guys and I want to teach what you want to know....!

I can't wait to meet all of you, fill your dream tanks up with all the encouragement and knowledge you need to reach the stars....

here's just a sample of some of the comments I received from the LA Glaminars:

You are a beautiful person inside and out Kandee... you are so talented...so incredibly sweet and funny... you truly are an inspiration to so many... I will say you have made a huge imprint in my life that I will never forget... Your light and spark and love for life were my inspiration to try and pursue my dreams and for once do something for myself to make ME happy!  Haha! I think if someone asked me who I wanted to be like when I grew up... I would say Kandee Johnson...hands down!!!! :) So smile hun :) Those sour people are so not worth your time... you have so much color to add to this world.... and are one of the kindest hearted people I have ever met...  Meeting you in person and working with some people from your team was so refreshing and made me realize for the first time in a long time that there are still really great people in this world...- HEATHER

im writing this to you to let you know how genuine i am when i say how you’ve inspired me so much, when i went to your glaminars i just felt so empowered & happy, I left believing I could be anything. You didn’t just give me a piece of paper saying "i've been there" you gave me such courage & strength & a future & most of all you let me know its not silly or impractical to follow my dreams, regardless of what anyone says, even if i don’t make “a living” at it (yet) =) I wouldn’t trade what you’ve given me for anything else in the world. I will carry that strength & knowledge with me for the rest of my life, I just had to let you know you’ve changed my life & I will be forever thankful to you for that. - BROOKE

Anyway, I have been telling everyone what a wonderful time I had in LA starting with the Glaminar on Friday night and concluding with IMATS on Saturday.  Wait until you see what's happened to me since I left the Glaminar...when you shot that burst of positive energy to me from the stage...remember?  Well I took it to the show and you're not going to believe what happpened next.- TRICIA

Kandee, I'm so excited that you are coming to NY! I have to juggle husband and three kis, but I would love to come to your Glaminars. I'm interested in makeup for women who are a little bit older, but still want to look great and glamorous. Also, makeup for different complexions., eye colors, hair colors. Thanks! You're great!

Now you just need to make a trip up to Alberta, Canada! LOL. Good luck and drive safe!!

Thanks Kandee!

I am so happy you're coming to New York Kandee!! I would love to come to the glaminars and learn everything I can about make-up. I would be interested in how to get a start in makeup ( I don't have any background in it) and just the basic fundamentals of makeup, like color wheel theory and highlighting and contouring...basic knowledge like that. I can't wait to meet you and learn everything from your wealth of makeup knowledge!!!

Keela said...

Thank you so much for making plans to come to the east coast! I was so excited to hear about your glaminars and then bummed to find out they would be in california. So I will definitely be there and I so look forward to meeting you! It would be awesome if you did a class primarily on makeup for print and film and HD, because that's the area I would like to break into. Thanks so much again and I look forward to the NY glaminars!

Amy said...

Kandee.. I wish i could be in nyc for your Glaminars. I am sure they will be wonderful. I have been watching your tutorials on YouTube and reading your blog. You are truly amazing and absolutely beautiful. I have been telling my hubby how much more I have learned from your videos than all the other YouTube makeup gurus combined. You rock!!!

Please come to Miami :)

Keela said...

Oh! And I'm totally interested in the portfolio workshop as well!

Elektaza said...

Hi Kandee

I left a comment on your video on the glaminars. I am wondering if you foresee a glaminars in the fall. I am having a baby next month but I really want to attend one after. I want to fly out from Canada specifically for a workshop from you. If you do not have plans this far in advance I'll just keep my eye out for updates. If you do, how do you register?

Thanks!

Michelle said...

I would love to see a class in HD, film/television makeup!

Michelle said...

Also how to build your business and get your name out there!

Sock Knitter said...

Any idea WHERE in NY? Before I can tell you what I'd like, I need to know if I would be able to make it there ;)

Thanks!

Jake said...

Melissa said...

Please come to Florida (Orlando or Tampa)!! I would love to see you.

Laura said...

Hi Kandee!

I soooo badly want to go to your glaminars in New York (I was one of those many many people begging you to come!) and am hoping you will have them after July 30th. I actually am travelling to L.A. (first time in years) on July 22 and back home in Toronto late on the 29th....but I am totally set to register and go to New York anytime after the 30th. I'm sending much positive energy and good vibes for dates after the 30th (see how I keep saying those dates...hoping they will sound really good to you lol!).
Anyway I'm glad you are feeling better and I am so glad to see you back on youtube. Thank you so much for all the inspiration...yep, after a long journey in visual arts I have decided to become a makeup artist which feels so absolutely right to me!
Have a fantastic week and keep doing what you're doing...it's amazing!!
Huge hug,
Laura

viciouslypink said...

Kandee I live in Orlando and will be traveling to NY to see you unless I find out that your coming to FL, please post soon if you are. I would absolutley love to learn Bridal, Tips and Tricks, also I am trying to get into freelance makeup artistry so anything about getting out there and ways to promote yourself would would be amazing!! I am sooo excited!!

Vanessa said...

I'm really interested in the New York Glaminars! So excited that you made time out to come to the East coast for them! I'm just wondering if you need any professional background to go to the Glaminars? I've been interested in that career field for a couple years now, but haven't made that step forward, so I don't have any background with makeup. Thanks in advance for any replies~!

MakeupByDonnaMarie said...

I wanna put in a request for you to come to Toronto, Canada. We'd love for you to come here! Hopefully in the near future. I would love to take lessons from you!

Caitlin G. said...

To the fabulous Kandee,

I am THRILLED beyond belief that you are coming to the east coast. I also love the idea of having a photog to work with at the Glaminars to help create a portfolio. Ideally, I would like you to do the whole weekend ( 3 days) of Glaminars,and do the glamour shots on the last day of it all. That way, we can apply all the skills that we learned during your classes into the photo shoot.

I really look forward to meeting and learning from you! I am on the east coast and only a short plane ride to NYC. I would be happy to help out in any way possible for the NYC glaminars. Please do not hesitate to ask!

E-mail: cgrazia2@mix.wvu.edu

And we are facebook friends so look up Caitlin G.

YOur post for the Glaminars in LA sounded amazing, the only reason i didnt go was because you were most likely to come to nyc next, and i happen to live in nyc, so i figured just wait ,and i couldnt be more excited, i hope it is in aug, as i would love to attend all classes, and need to save up, in any event, i think what you are doing for so many ppl who dont have a clue how to get started (LIKE ME), is extremely generous of you, and i truly thank you for it.

rubiekay said...

Oh--I really want to attend your glaminars in NY!!! even I starve, keep eating only fastfoods, and staying at the youth hostel though I am not that young... haha!!

omgweluvames said...

Hi Kandee!
I'm so happy to see that you are going to New York! I don't know if I can attend when you are here but I do have a good idea for a presentation you could do. I'm huge on film/tv and I think NY would be a good place to teach people how to do makeup for that. I remember you said in your past videos that you did makeup for conan O Brien I think so I think it would be neat if you showed us how makeup in done for tv and movies.

If you don't do that at a glaminar, can you still make videos on how to do basic makeup for films/tv? That would be awesome :) Thanks so much! I love your videos!

Yuk Yee said...

I am so excited you are coming to NYC. Keep me posted please because I will be there. Can't wait to meet you.

Crystal Rae said...

Hey Kandee... I just recently found you on Youtube and followed here to blogspot. I'm not in to make up artistry (if that's a word :P) BUT, I love photography, and I do enjoy improving my own look with make up and hair, and you make it so easy. Plus your personality makes it more interesting to watch :P Great blog, I can't wait to see and read what else you have to offer.

Kandee please come to San Francisco!

Wendy Huber said...

I'm so excited! I would LOVE if you could cover more fashion agency related ways to get in the field and along with that note, any tips you can think of to be faster on shoot but still with high quality. Also, it would be SUPER RAD if you could go over a good range for our kits to be. I work in the retail avenue of the industry and get lots of gratis, but my kit has become frustrating with so many little things to dig through. Any advice on what would be great to keep and what to give away. If I think of more things on my wishlist, I will be sure to let you know:) Thanks again and looking forward to your class!

Deborah said...

OMG, I can't believe it. I'm so excited. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Whatever you are going to be teaching, I want to be first in line to learn. I love everything about makeup and I've always wanted to learn how to get started in that field. So I will be there, and I want to learn everything!!!! hehehehe. Super duper happy! I can't wait. Yay!!!!

sheri said...

I am sitting waiting, on the edge of my seat to see when your really coming to NY to teach us aspiring artist!

Michele said...

hii kandee..

my sister introduced me to your youtube videos...will you be giving more info about where and when the nyc glaminars are happening?/

i love to learn how to do more makeup on asian features and faces.. thanks!!! =)

ziiggy430 said...

Just in case you decided to go to yet ANOTHER city after New York.... I would like to request that you come to Chicago!!! I'll be patiently waiting. Love your vids, Kandee.

aerny8808 said...

Hi kandee, I discovered you on youtube and I loved the very first video I saw! Im an aspiring makeup artist and I love your work. I live in central NY and would make a special trip to the city to attend one of your glaminars. I really feel it would improve my skills for my business. Do you have any dates or locations set up yet? and if so what is the cost? Keep us posted! Thanks! Ann :)

joycegerena said...

Hi Kandee,

Like Ann I discovered you on youtube as well and your energy, sweet personality and talent is amazing. Your genuineness shines through you. I am actually very exited about the Glaminar as I am highly passionate about makeup and want to pursue a career in this field. I think this is a perfect way for me to start. I certainly am interested in all the areas you want to cover. I would appreciate any information you can give me on this event as I will not miss it for the world!

Dannygirl said...

Hi Kandee!!!

Would you consider tacking on a trip to Boston while you are on the East Coast?

Mich CoccaBene said...

Hi Kandee!!
I am wondering if there is any new info on the NY Glaminar yet!??! I cannot wait to get my ticket and my sister will most likely come as well. One question though, you don't have to be a licensed MUA, right? We're not, I WISH I was though! Anyway, I would LOVE it if you could really teach contouring, I cannot get that down pat no matter how hard I try. I need my chubby apple cheeks to be thinned out a bit. Other than that, ANYTHING you teach at the glaminar will be awesome and interesting to me. Please email me at mcocco13@gmail.com with info esp date/location/ price for tickets. Also, what nationality are you? It's an ongoing argument between my husband and I. he he he :)
XOXO Michele

G'day Kandee
I have just come across you and your wonderful videos, I did this beacuse I have just started a makeup course here in Sydney Australia and I was feeling a litle lost so I jumped on youtube and there you were! I have found your videos to be so useful and I can see your passion for the industry. My dream is to work in film or tv in America or Canada as Australia is so far behind the 8 ball! I know this is a hard arena to crack and would love some tips on how to get into the film industry and also some tips on colours, which colours suit which skin colours and eye colours. Also our IMATS are in September any chance of you comming out to Australia and doing some glaminars at the same time??
All the best with what you are doing
