Fall Make-Up on my mom!

Get ready to add some dazzle to your fall make-up! Instead of all the FALL/AUTUMN "trends"...which are always so predictable....browns, golds, blah.....I wanted to show you how to add some color to typical "brown-neutral" shades of fall!
Ban the boring old brown and gold....
And have some pink with pink that's bold!!!

"LIFE'S TOO SHORT TO WEAR BROWNS!"- ha ha ha ha

This is a very fun and funny video(watch the end for the funny parts with my mom)! 

HERE'S WHAT I USED ON MY MOM:

LIQUID FOUNDATION~
Make-Up Forever HD Foundation in #170 Caramel (used to contour and add warmth to her face)

CREAM FOUNDATION (that I use as a concealer)~
COVER FX CREAM FOUNDATION (my new skin-perfecting addiction!!! I love this stuff so much I would marry it! ha ha ha) in M70
(seriously, this is the most skin -perfecting, beautiful make-up I've ever put on!)

FACE POWDER:
La Mer "The Treatment" Face Powder (very fancy pants...amazing coverage, I have no idea how much this stuff costs...It was a gift to me. It's probably pricey, but it is incredible!) in Porcelain

CHEEK COLOR:
CREAM CHEEK COLOR~I used a bright pink cream cheek color (to add a youthful glow to my mom's face) in POSEY from MAC...and hot pink cream color or even a hot pink lipstick will work!

POWDER BLUSH~ I went over her cheeks first with ANGEL from MAC, a light matte pink, then I dabbed a few colors for warmth and depth, I used:
a peach color - PEACHES N' PINK from MAC
and a mocha-rose color- MOCHA from MAC

EYES:
TO PRIME THE EYE, I used:
SOFT OCHRE Paint Pot from MAC (this will make sure shadow is very pigmented, will stay on longer, and hides ugly veins and redness in the lids)
SHADOWS:
(and because everyone always asks ans I forget to say: the palette's I use are Z PALETTE'S, they are magnetic, see-through, and awesome! You can get them at: www.zpalette.com)
I used a neutral shadow - use ANY shade that matches your skin, for my mom I used BRULEE from MAC.
TO ADD DIMENSION to her eye I used a combo of cool and warm browns together...
CORK -a warm brown from MAC & CHARCOAL BROWN (a cool brown from MAC)

EYELINER:
I used Black Black (it's a pro color from MAC or you can use any cream/gel black liner) and an angled brush. I also really like AQUA BLACK from Make-Up Forever that is totally water-proof!
I went over it with black eyeshadow to soften the edge, in CARBON from MAC.

LASHES:
I curled her lashes, applied several coats of L'Oreal Extend Tubes Mascara (we both LOVE this stuff!)

EYEBROWS:
I used an angled brush an eyeshadow in a cool dark brown (the darker the eyebrows the younger you look!), I used CHARCOAL BROWN (or you could use COQUETTE) from MAC

LIPS:
I used a HOT PINK lipliner from Make-Up Forever in 16C FUSCHIA to apply a "stain" for the pink base.
 Then I went over the edges in CHERRY RED from MAC.
And topped it off with a HOT PINK BLUSH to set the lipstick and give it a velvety-matte look.
I used HOT PINK blush, any brand will work, from MAC.
I ALSO dabbed ANGEL (a light baby pink blush) in the center of the lips to make them look bigger!

So don't be boring this fall with browns, add some punch and fun with this fun look! Get ready to watch this fun and funny video! Make sure you watch the end!

thanks so much guys...I think you all made my mom's whole year with all the compliments...she can't believe it! huge love from me and my mama!!!

Stricken said...

You did such an amazing job. Your mom looks absolutely GORGEOUS!!

My mom & I have a very rough relationship so when I traveled back home last time I did her make-up. She doesn't wear hardly anything normally. She looked so pretty & when she went to a big work event she had after wards 3 people asked her if she had had her make-up professionally done!

More importantly, she felt really good about herself and it was a really good bonding time for us. We really needed that. I'm going back for Christmas so I for sure plan to use these tips and do it again!
PS.After watching many of your videos for so many months & practicing all the looks on myself Im wanting to be a make-up artist now! Looking for schools here in Portland (and some way to pay for it) haha So thank you for that too. Amazing how your videos have actually changed my life. XOXO

GYPSY JESS said...

You look so much like her!!! beautiful!

Jamie Marie said...

I absolutely LOVE that you do makeovers on your mom, I do the same thing. Since I've started my beauty blog (www.publicservicebeauty.com), she's asked me to come over and re-create any looks I do in the blog. It's the easiest route to mother-daughter bonding, especially when you're grown up and not living together.

As always, your mama looks gorgeous, with and without the makeup tricks!!

MommyLovesStilettos said...

Your mom is beautiful!! :)

I need your help with a makeup question....I have an event on Sat night and won't be able to touch up my makeup for 4 or 5 hours. My skin is oily no matter what I do. anything I can do to keep me from looking SHINY?? I'm a nervous wreck about this and don't want to find pictures later of me looking shiny faced! :(

Marganit said...

I think we have found the first human clone: Kandee Johnson. :-D

whsy said...

wow! your mommy is so beautiful ^^

alex said...

your mom is gorgeous!! you guys look so much a like! the video was adorable i loved it!

Just Being Z said...

Hey Kandee!
I just cannot ever get over how much you guys look alike. Well, duh, cause she's your mom, but even I don't look that much like my mom. Both of you are beautiful!

Question: In the previous post, you mention Crown Brushes. What is good about them?

I'm always looking for new brushes, and sometimes it can get expensive at Ulta, even, with their brushes. These Crown ones look like they're a good price. You obviously like to use them.
Hope to hear from you soon!

Ooh Kandi, I will watch this video many times, because it gives me a good feeling, besides it reminds me of my own dear mother. Truth is; nobody love us like mums :)
I am sad for those who dont have a good mother..

totally appreciate all your videos, i am new to wearing eye makeup and you have been super helpful. well mac has some cool brush sets for about $50 and i am curious, what brushes are essential? you use a fluffy brush for all over color and a flat one for your liner, what are those numbers?

Tinuke said...

You are absolutely adorable. I loved the video. Thanks for the tips if I ever need to apply makeup on my mother, I know where to go for tips. I

God bless
