all pinned-up and don't know what to do....

I love Rihanna...I think she is beautiful, and she has bold style, that's edgy, yet glam-pretty! And I lvoe that she plays around with make-up....her eyes are always usually light on the lids and darker below....very sul-tray!!!

I love this look!!! It's like a modern day, edgy, pin-up look! Clean eye...sharp cat eye, winged liner......clean, pouty mouth.....gorge-ay!!!! (everything's gonna end in "ay" tod-ay! ha ha)

Rihanna doesn't care what people think...we shouldn't let people other people that have tongues that are ready to make fun of anything different, because they are too scared to be "non-boring"....ruin it for us making us scared to get things said to us like:
"nice shoes!"...."where'd you get that shirt"..."what is on your face?".....
OUR RESPONSES: I like it....and that's all that matters!

It doesn't matter what kind of car we drive, how big or small our house is, what we wear, how we talk, what color our hair is, if we are covered in tattoos from head to toe, what we look like....
no one has the right to judge us...
and if they do...they need to get the telephone pole out of their own eye...before the try to pick on a toothpick in our eye...

God gave us the creativity to think they way we do, put outfits together the way we do, and the desire to like something....if you want to wear a pink tutu and cowboy boots....do and wear it with confidence...and if anyone says anything to you like: "oh, nice tutu"....say "thanks, nice jeans!"....hee hee hee....or if they say "what are you wearing!?!"...and that sass-tone we all know....
"helloooooooo, a tutu!"...ha ha ha ha....or "same thing as you...just fancier sorts of grape leaves to cover the body"....hee hee

(for some reason...and I even say it in my video....the hot pink lips I did, looked the same color as Rihanna's in real life, but in the video and pictures...it looks light pink...argh!)
I love this look!
Be bold..be free...and don't let anyone stomp on you being you.....be the boldest, most confident you....and if y ou don't feel confident...fake it! Pretend you're going to meet up with me, we're going shopping....and we don't care what people say about how we dress.....Let them stare!
(i know kids can be mean in school, so if you're in school.....know that I used to wear weird outfits....and I got told mean things....but I didn't care, I'd show up with my bright red baggy jeans and white doc martens the next day too)

May the Fashion & Beauty Force be with you! ha ha ha ha

enjoy the video...try it and make it yours!! huge love all my lovelies....you beautiful and wonderful...and I cheer on any fun and creative shoices you make today!!!! Let's go and paint the world "non-boring"!!!! love you all!!!! kandee

Thank you so much for this blog Kandee. I have zero confidence and have social phobia (I always think people are talking behind my back too), and by reading your kind and inspiring words, I get like a jolt of "I don't care what people think". I wish it lasted forever! I love you Kandee!! Thank you! :oD

xixi said...

always love your positive attitude! keep it up!

katush024 said...

i love it...beautiful make-up and hair :))

Danyell said...

Love it! You're gorgeous! So is Rihanna!

palaxcios said...

I'm doing this look today! Love it!
And I agree, I love how Rihanna will be who ever she wants to be, no matter how different it may be from day to day. Love you Kandee!

Jedidiah said...

I totally agree with you Kandee! It's fun to be different. People always seemed to stare at me a lot growing up, I'm not sure why, but they did. So when I finally got into high school I colored my hair crazy brown and red. I figured if people were going to stare, I might as well give them something to stare at! Thank you for posting this. God created us all differently! Why look like cookie cutter people in this world? Insult my style if you want (saying that to the world), at least I make your life more interesting than if I looked just like everyone else. Life would be terribly boring if there weren't "out there creative" people in the world to add a splash of color and interesting. Plus, the "normie cookie cutter people" would have nothing to gossip about if there weren't interesting people like us to spice things up!

Kathecita said...

Hey Kandee, keep up the great work on your videos. Always fun to watch. Question, do you mind including information of the products that you use on your tutorials? I really like the cream blush that you use but cannot understand what the brand is or the color. Thank you!

Fruädel said...

Jesie said...

Hey Kandee, this blog totally made my day. I was having such a bad day because someone who doesn't even know me made a hurtful remark to me. For awhile I let it bug me but then I totally started thinking about the things you say and how we shouldn't let others hurtful mean attitude affect us. Then your blog totally made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kandee for always having the right thing to say. Have a great day :)

ellen said...

wow, I again love this look! It seems that I'm totally addicted to your blog because it is the first thing that I visit when I turn on my computer in the morning (I actually should check my email first and do other important stuff.. but oh well..:)

xoxo, Kate said...

love it!! totally wanna try it sometime!!

Shaheen Shine said...

This is really pretty I`m gonna use it for my DMV permit picture!! =) THANKS KANDEE!

f said...

You are a smart and cute girl...

jmp said...

Great video!! I will def try this... okay Ms. Kandee, i need your help. Have you ever seen small women but their faces look kind of like they still have baby fat. Im trim and only weigh 120 (28 yrs old), but my face looks very chubby to the point that in some pics you can see creases from the inner corner of my eye, down across the apple of the cheek then stops!!!! Its not dark like under eye circles...just dented looking. i know this sounds funny, but do you have any concealer tips or tricks or anything??

katz said...

Beautiful as always. Hope all is going well for you Kandee. You are a sweetheart.

katz said...

Beautiful as always. Hope all is well for you. You are a sweetheart.

Irina said...

Ceuceu said...

Love from France

mdlc5 said...

i LOVE this look too!!! i am so excited you did this video bc i believe this shall be my valentine's look :) thanks Kandee!! love ya

Shelby Renae said...

This is one of my favorite looks from you, Kandee. Simply gorgeous! I've been doing the winged eyeliner look for awhile, but this one is so much more fun and edgy. You've inspired me to be more daring and fun with my makeup. I usually stick with nudes and boring browns, but now I think of you whenever I'm in the makeup aisle. Pretending to shop with you is majorly fun. :D Have an awesome day!! <3

sophierecktenwald said...

i think rihanna is a very btf woman, and do know how to style herself...
great vid you've done...

thank youuuuuu
and keep on smiling..even if its hard sometimes..
but you know, smiling to the problems makes them a bit lighter :)

kiss and hugs from luxembourg-fan

TKOmulatta said...

I love it....
great recreation. and you are right we shouldn't be afraid to do something we want just because someone else doesn't approve. its important to stay true to yourself! <3

Dolly said...

I adore you KaNdEe!!! You are just so sweet!! I wish I could meet you!!!

I love your attitude! You are an inspiration and a counsellor for someone who is feeling low!!!

I love all your videos. I have a request if you can make a tutorial on how to apply eyeliner - liquid/gel and pencil. That would be so kind of you! I still don't know how to put eyeliner on! As a kid I had an accident with a sharpened pencil and I nearly poked my eye out (but thankfully just scratched my skin)...since then I've been scared to put any sharp pencil thing close to my eye!

Lots of love and hugs,

Your friend,

Fatima

Joanna said...

oh my gosh!! this is my first time posting, millionth time reading and i just want to say you look gorgeous here kandee! no joke! :)

Lady_Madonna said...

Very cute! Love your stuff!

Alisha said...

Kandee, I have a question about some of the brushes you use. What brand of brushes are the ones with the white bristles w/black tips? In this video it's your blush/contour brush, but I've seen you use a couple of eyeshadow brushes like that as well.

leta said...

Carla said...

Very Pretty look!! Have a great day Kandee! Thank you for doing videos!!

Margarett said...

I think that you look a lot like Debbie Harry (but with dark hair) when she first got big wearing this eyeliner shape. Looks really good. Thanks for the tutorial.

Gisselle Flores said...

ooh i like, its kinda different than your other looks, more natural looking than your usual smoky eye (which i love too)

sierrahoffhines said...

Omg U Are So Pretty I trye it OnMe And I DO nOt LOOK Good at all but aways i watch ur youtube all the timne

alex said...

i'm loving the lips in really bright colors like purple. i was wondering if you could show how to pull off these awesome bright neon-y lips.

s said...

what's the name of the hello kitty mac lipstick u used?

ifoundpablo said...

Hi from New Zealand!

Love the edgy looks - more please!

Your videos are amazing...I have been subscribed to you on youtube for almost a year now. I loved the movie looks you did a while back. You are like the female Johnny Depp - amazing bone structure and a face that can really hold up to major stage make-up.

Syl said...

HI Kandee. I just fell upon your blog a couple weeks ago and when I saw your picture on top I thought wow that model is so pretty and her makeup is nice. Lo and behold, you were the gorgeous lady, and your positive videos and messages make you even better. I've been meaning to write for awhile in regards to your court issues and I wanted to let you know that at the end of the day the most important people who know you are a GREAT mom are your kids! From what I've gathered, me just reading your blog I find that your kids have the most amazing and loving mom and they will be great people when they grow up. I just wanted to write this to send you positive affirmations because you send positive messages to sooooo many people. Keep on keeping on, kandee!

hawleeduke said...

HEY KANDEEE! I wanted to tell you that I am huge fan of your's, your best makeup guru on youtube by far! I want to put in a make-up request. If you could do like really funn rainbow look or like a yellow, pink, and orange look or even something with a lot of color it would be awesome!

moira said...

wow kandee that's so true a lot of people tell you things like "hey where did you buy that? In Freaky's palace??" and you just feel bad cause in the end you care about what people says but you shouldn't cause you could wear whatever you like you´re free and people who say that kind of things are people without personality so they try to make you behave like the rest of people so in that way they could feel normal and accepted by the society, well at least that's my theory of why people behaves like that when you look "different" of the other people.

Leah said...

Kandee I can't even begin to tell you how much I look forward to your daily blurbs and videos. I truely feel like a friend, or feel like your a friend I suppose since you don't know me. I love all the looks you do :) I already tried this one out tonight. Love it think I'm just gonna keep fine tuning it so that one of these days I will wear it out ;)

Hugs,

Leah

Phoebe said...

Thank you so much for the inspiring words! They always make my day and make me feel more confident about myself. You have an amazing personality <3

Just a question about the lip liner; I've been trying to find places that sell Hard Candy product. Would you happen to know any in Canada?
Thanks so much <3

~*geena*~ said...

You are so great Kandee!! I love everything you have to say! Reading your blogs and watching your videos are like a mini vacation!! they are so fun to watch and read!! and your messages are so inspirational!! love you!!

Ashley loves said...

okay so.... pretending that i am going to be meetin up with you later really does make me feel confident to wear what i feel-crazy/fun clothes. i usually dont care if i dress down, people stare and i just walk tall...when i dress nice i feel fine cause im 'normal'...only once in a while i have the confident to wear what i feel...fun and me...i think i can get back to that, looking at it as not being the only one. Kandee is doing it too...we stand out :)

i love the video, i cant wait to go shopping for make-up. it will be my first time! lol (sounds funny, i know :) it's true though!) i'm going to watch all your videos and make a list of things to buy :)

okay goodnight! i heart you!

-Ashley

Melissa said...

kandee,

you have an ability to word things in such a special way. its a way that really makes me think about what you're saying and how it applies to my everyday outlook on life. theres always a positive or silver lining in every blog post, and your words are always honest, encouraging, and insightful. i love reading ur blog for these reasons.... thanks for ur words....

ps.u should compile ur posts into a "self help" book for people who love a daily pick me up! it would sell millions im sure!

jannette said...

perfectly said!
i love your style kandee :]
its fun and creative

Diane said...

Hy Kandee. I enjoyed this video so much, you look lovely as Rihanna. And I'm so happy you wrote this text, because I've always been like this. Wear make up or clothes or hair the way I wanted and never cared about other people and it turned out good for me, because I am unique, no on else can be me, ever!

:D Have a super fun day!

kiss

Krässu said...

Hey, Kandee!

I dress differently and I act differently than others and they stare too, but I kinda like that attention that I get. Now I'm re-designing my clothes, cutting skirts and wearing puzzles as my earings. It's confidence that makes me be happy and positive. I know that things are great and the more I think that way, the more greater things get. And now, when I realize that outside part of humans I get to the inside part too. And now I finally understand how stupid most of people are, who are all money-sex-alcohol-motivated.
Valentine's Day is coming and I hope you give your friends the most precious time that you have!

Have the best days of your life,
Krässu, the make-up artist.

Lucy said...

Kandee, it is such a wonderful makeup look! I love how you can pull off ANY look. For example, I haven't used my eyeshadow in FOR EVER, and the color isn't that great. You could pull of that look and would still be beautiful!

Thanks for inspiring me!

Trina said...

Fantastic! Both the look and your attitude. I love it.

Julie said...

Hi Kandee! Would you consider doing a video where you put together a complete makeup bag? Maybe $200 of color essentials and tools (any brand) that can create gorgeous and versitile looks?

Thanks,
Julie

JT1212 said...

Hi Kandee can you please tell me what bronzer brush you use!!! I have been trying to figure it out in every video you do, but cannot, LOL! thanks!!! btw love love love you!!! you are truly an inspiration and a blessing, i read you every day:)))

Giedre said...

You make me happy, you make me laugh, feel free, confident and trust myself, the things I need the most.

Not a surprise as you are my DIAMOND.:)

Love you.
Yours Giedre. (gianthug)

Laura said...

ruby360 said...

Giedre said...

I'm writin' your words into my notebook, so if I'll be sad or lost in the outfit and I'll be on the plane, back to my country, and I won't have the internet, I'll read your words straight from my notebook. I'm 199.5% sure they will help me. Haa :D

Yours Giedre. (gianthug)

Stephanie Machowski said...

Thank you so much for that. I really really needed some encouragement in life and so I went to your site, because I know that you can always bring me back up. I am in cosmetology school and everyone hates me. I am beautiful, drive a nice car, have a wonderful boyfriend, and live in a very nice apartment.....I guess people just can't stand someone that is like that? I am the nicest person too, I bake them brownies and invited them to my house and made them dinner, and today at school, no one would talk to me no matter what it was about or anything. I love the encouragement you give. It REALLY helps me get through my day. (I only have 200 hours :s so I have a long way to go!!)....also, if you ever go to disneyland, you should let me know...I live right down the street!!

Mrs. Westmoreland said...

Hey Kandee, you really inspire me. I love your make up looks, they make me want to do different things. I used to be pretty boring with my make up until I found you. I love being different, I've always been different. And btw, shopping with you sounds amazing. You seem like you would be a great friend!

The Twins of Think2!.. said...

Loving the Rihanna look!!! I trying out this weekend for sure!!!!

- Jess

Autumn said...

I tried this look and I love it!! I am wearing it right now! Too bad I have no where to go so I can't show it off. I am going to try it with purple on the eye next time.
Keep up the good work! I love it.

pampam said...

I nominate Kandee Johnson to be the next Bachelorette!!! Who's with me??!?!

Gabriela said...

Amazing!!! Thank you for such a bold rocker look to try out :)

Cynthia B. Demented said...

Well, after watching this video, I ran to the pharmacy and bought electric colors!

Fantastic video! Thank you so much!

Violet said...

Hello Kandee...
I ♥ the video! Rhianna has that "edgy" style that I like and you pulled off her look with flying colors! I just want to know what type of blush you used? It's the pink tube...It seems like it's an easy application and I want to know where I would be able to purchase one. Thank you.

"keep up the fantastic work!" :D
