this is me....circa 8-9 years old...fancy outdoors portraits with lots of dried flower props, complete with the dried flower wreath I am sporting....I was in dried flower heaven!

here is lil' Kanny.....I'm guessing about 2-3 years old....

back with the dried flowers again! from L-R...my mustache-wearin' dad, my beautiful mama, the kandee-nator, and my lil' sissy..

ahhhhhhhhhh...high school portrait!!!!! look at my eyebrows!?!

well there may not be any dried flowers...seems we upgraded to dried grass! ha ha ha...and we added my favorite dog, our cocker spaniel, Whisper...(hint:....I'm on the right)

The point of all this show and tell ....? Pictures man! I've been getting requesters...for school pictures, portraits, work films....etc....so here's a sampling of some of my past "portraits"....

And since I've been a make-up artist for movies, print ads, fashion shows, celebrities, tv shows...I know a trick or two on how to make you (or anyone) look great in photos....
so here goes a little (quick and natural looking) how to on looking gooooood for your next photo op...whether it's your school pics....your new driver's license, work id photos....or some family portraits....I got your back...or actually your face! ha ha ha ha

Love it, I never know what to do for pictures. Plus I think this is a great everyday look, if I put on less foundation and concealer.

Do you have any more tips on eyebrows? I've watched the grooming video, but my problem is that the skin behind my brows gets really dry and flaky and it is all sorts of unattractive, I put UnPetroleum on them at night but during the day it takes too long to absorb before I have to put on my makeup so I can't do that...

:/

Anyway, love your videos, I put them on in the morning when I'm trying to decide how I should look that day.

Have a fantastic weekend :)

something that i've learned from experience is using a lip pencil all over the lips, because somehow the lens wipes away any listick/lipgloss colour that i have and shows my true lip colour.
i hope it makes sense... maybe it's a well-known trick, i don't know... but it was a revelation to me!!!

Carmen said...

A hallo from Norway :O)

MsZgirl1 said...

I truly don't understand how anyone could tell you that you weren't beautiful. It's unfortunate that you had someone like that try to damage your soul. But, look at you know! You improve so many others' outlook by just being yourself, which is beautiful.

I love the videos, from the most simple and basic to the most dramatic. They're great for both me and my daughter.

Oh yeah, I responded to the contest video, but the video was cut off and kinda crazy looking. I put the exact same video back up after I compressed it better (I guess that's what I did) and re-submitted it. I hope you'll approve it. Don't know why my google user name is different on here but MsZgirl1 is the same as zgirlkirk. Thanks.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

hahaha you're so funny! that's one good lookin family right thurr haha.

Maureen said...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! :) Also my sis & I have the same pictures when we were kids- dressed like twins even though we're 2 yrs apart! Why oh why do mothers insist on doing that? lol :)

Jennifer said...

Wow! You have a BEAUTIFUL family!

Heathersworld said...

Thanks Kandee. It's fun watching your video's. I feel prettier every time I try these new things. I even was trying to learn how to use the built in webcam on the laptop today so I could maybe post a video response one day. It was fun. I did not even know that was on there. It is weird to see yourself and try to fix your hair backwards and such. You are awesome at it. I actually made a short video for fun on my new outfit I made today with your inspiration and Threadbanger. I cut up a HUGE oversize Kansas City Chiefs T-shirt and made it to small. So I added some cool white strips at each side of the shirt. The neck is cut wide. It turned out so sharp. Then I cut a mini jean skirt and it was pretty short but I have on black leggings to go with. It's a funny blurry video but it was fun. You inspire me to just do fun stuff and be silly and real. Thanks Kandee.

kandee!

OMGGEEE you have the cutest family! you look so pretty/cute in your pictures. btw, you look sort of asian in some of your pictures!

you mentioned lining the bottom of the lash line to make eyes appear "smaller." what tips would you give to asian girls like myself to make eyes look "bigger." i know white eye liner is a trick for may people but i dont know if its my eye shape but it makes my eyes look funny (whether i line just the inside cornr or the entire bottom line). i love lining my bottom lash line because that's where it brings the most emphasis to my eyes...but how can i make them look "bigggr" and not smaller?


thank you and have a GREAT DAY! i look forward to your videos each and everyday!

----/----<3,
Tina

MrsBaboosh said...

Hi Kandee,

I loooove your videos they help me sooooooooo much, i'm really trying to pull myself out from the frumpy mummey era and go back to yummy mummy like yourself!

I have been going to a salon to get my hair coloured and cut which costs a fortune so really want to try and dye my hair from home following your video. I'm still trying to find a dye and wondered how do you choose a colour, is there a rule for how dark you should go? I'm pale skinned if that helps?

Thanks Kandee,

Catherine

Zoe said...

Hey K! I love all your costume videos! My friend finger waved my hair and I decided to be a cigarette girl form the roaring 20's. I am so excited!. Have any other vintage ideas I can work with? I guess I could use the pin up look one. I am going to wear a lot of velvety red stuff. AHH! I am so excited. Thanks for all the great videos!!!

mynameisjanee said...

So, your pictures from when you were younger- you totally looked like Wendy from the Wonder Years!!

I hope your day/night is finding you well.

My love to you- Janee'
