Ahhhhhh the Vampy Vampire....
I'll show you some special FX make-up tricks and tips!

And may I mention...I've been sleeping like a vampire...up all night (editing this video...I finished it at 4:30 am....started at 10:30 pm...just editing! ahhhhhh) So I REALLY hope you guys like it...I've been working almost 20 hours a day trying to make all the videos for you it really makes my heart happy when you leave me 5 stars and a nice comment! You have no idea! ha ha

I get to use share some of my pro special FX tips with you...I've worked with and learned from some of the top special FX make-up artists in the biz.....Thom Surprenant and I worked on a movie...with lots of blood and gunshot wounds! He is brilliant...and gave me one of his blood palettes (thanks you thom!!!)....I finally got to use it for this!!!

It feels like painting to me...I love it! I love being this makes me feel alive!

Please enjoy all my hard work I put into this video...(hee hee) was made with love and care!

Ohhhh Kandee! I love you =]
Love your creativity, I give you infinity kudos!
Thanks for sharing your talents with us. Pretty sure watching your videos make me all excited about slapping makeup on... erhmm.. properly for once. You're good at informing, teaching, sharing your insight, knowledge and smiles with everyone else; makes me glad to know there's a beautiful person like you out in this world.
I'm stoked as that Halloween's coming up even though Australia doesn't really take much notice of it - my uni friends are chucking a Halloween party so it gives me an opportunity to dress up and finally try out one of the many themes you've inspired me with!
Yep yep stoked!

Take care
Keep smiling =]

Great job, Kandee!! new fan - totally addicted :) I just started law school and let me say, your videos are my mini-vacation from work each night!! I would go bananas without some glam in my life :) keep up the good work!

Unknown said...

aw kandeeyou dont have to kill yourself editing videos!!! i think people will live if we get a video only once or twice a week. you need sleep!

The Daily Rant said...

LOVED this look! And I love your videos (I got my cousin hooked on them too!)

I posted this very same thing over on your YouTube page, but I'll post it again here to make sure I get in my requests for your future looks.

I'd love to see a Louise Brooks flapper look or Carmen Miranda.

I dressed up like her many years ago and am considering doing it again, but I'd love to see your version!

Here's mine:

OMG, you should definitely do the heath ledger joker look and his girlfriend harley quinn, two in one video!! it would be amazing.. and fun :)

xandtha said...

kandee~~! 5 stars already! this is an incredible look! absolutely adore it! none of those harsh downright gothic black-eyes that normal vamp looks will have. this has a softer, sultrier, and absolutely bewitching mix of purple based hues. love how you smoke the violet out. your eyes look incredible! thanks for all your hard work sweetheart! you dear angel you :D

Jesi said...

Please do a 20's CHARLESTON LOOK or 40's FLAPPER LOOK! Fingerwave and feather in hair and all! You seem to love the classic oldies music similar to these eras it would be great to see you as one! cant wait!

Blovet Beauty said...

Tammi said...

Hi Kandee - love the Halloween video series. You do the best job out there.

I want to go as an Ice queen for Halloween and would love to see you do an icy makeup. I was thinking of doing ice crystals for eyebrows but need help with the icy eye makeup.

Thanks for all you do!

WinterBlossom said...

Wow kandee! Awesome pictures. You work so hard I dont know how you do it! We love you even more for it. :) xxx

ETESSA said...

Hi, Kandee! I just wanted to let you know that I, and I'm sure everyone else agrees with me, that we really appreciate all your hard work and time you put into these videos and blog posts. I started doing some of my own and they're totally time consuming, and I just have to say you're the real live Wonder Woman for having so much energy to do it all while being a fabulous mother to your three children and STILL always having the brightest most beautiful smile for us to look forward to throughout the week. I have lived 24 years of my life without someone I've been able to call an inspiration to me, and here you are - finally someone that inspires me to be creative, fun, ever-loving, and always as cheerful and hopeful as I can be. =o) So thank you with all my heart!!! <3 <3 <3

abbzzw said...

jobetterdays said...

I love this! Where did the tutorial go?? I wanted to try it out tomorrow!!
Love ya!

Unknown said...

Kandee...I am so impressed by your transformations using makeup. I saw the tutorial on the Twilight Twist a week ago and wanted to use it for a party tonight...but boo wasn't there, my link was broken.

I did get a list of the makeup names off your blog...but I need your help!

Unknown said...

Yes please Kandee put it back up! I beg of you! lol :)

Unknown said...

yes, please! I would love to use this for halloween, but it's gone! :(

I left messages on your other sites, too! Is there a reason why you took it down?

Unknown said...

i need this video. it's what i based my whole halloween costume on!

Midori said...

Dear Kandee I need this video please!! could you upload it directly to your blog or your facebook page if there are problems with youtube?? I based my halloween costume on this look and I don't remember all the steps :(
Thanks so much!! You are a delight to watch, love your art and your great attitude.
Kisses from Peru

chow bella said...

I really like it! The hair is cool with the veil...I would love to see how you got those curls. I'm going as a corpse bride for halloween, but the hair in these pics would be perfect! Maybe you could do a corpse bride look like from the Tim Burton movie...please :)

Mar said...

Kandee this look is just AWESOME! Did you ever post it on youtube or was it taken down? I've been looking for it, but haven't seen it :(

Angelam1824 said...

Hi Kandee,
I've never commented before, but I love you and all your videos, and you're amazing. You break down the steps so even I (a makeup idiot) can follow along and look gorgeous.
I showed my friend the Twilight look, and she wanted me to do her makeup for her for Halloween (HUGE for me, I've never felt confident enough to help anyone)...but the look is gone and I don't know where to find it. It's no longer on Youtube, is it somewhere else? I'd love to see it again because I want to practice it a few times before I try it on her.
Thanks so much, you're amazing, Happy Halloween, and I look forward to all the future videos!

Unknown said...

I guess I`ll try to recreate it without the vid...I know you have a lot going on, I just wish you could at least tell us what happened to it.

Amanda said...

Hi Kandee Just hoping you can post your Vampire look video again!
Iam looking forward to doing that look for Halloween. Hope you can help...Thanks and Loving Fan!!!

Emma said...

Hi Kandee This vampire look is awesome, it's exactly what i want to do for halloween, but I can't find the video, I hope you can put it back on the internet some day !
Thank you for all your work which is really inspiring!
