Whoa Make-Over Make-Up!

here is one SICK Kandee Johnson, on the left I could hardly breathe, my nose was so sore and swollen from blowing my nose: 857,394 times
my eyes felt swollen and glassy...just yucky.
AND then on the RIGHT
...we have one still-sick, Kandee, but now coated in "health" colored make-up! ha ha ha ha ha

I tell ya....sometimes one of my favorite things about being a make-up artist is the transformation. I love before and afters!
And it's fun when you have yourself to do the BEFORE & AFTER's on! ha ha ha ha
The only reason I actually put make-up on, was so I could do this before and after.
Usually when I am sick...the only thing I want on my face is moisturizer! ha ha ha
hope you thought this was fun!
cups of hot tea...and I hope anyone else who's sick is feeling better....

The Power of Makeup DAMN!
Hey Kandee, I don't know if you are going to be able to answer this, but I would like your advice.
Next month Im going to Mozambique for a wedding and it's summer there. Can you suggest what eyeshadow colour and lipstick/lipgloss could I wear?
My skin tone is like Beyonce I guess (I'm mix raced)and before going to the wedding Im definatly going to the beach and I will get a bit tanner. Below is the link to my Blog that I show what I'm going to wear on the wedding.

DEBORAH M said...

WOW!!!!! THE MIRACLES THAT MAKEUP DOES.

communicatingbeauty said...

exactly like me today! i looked so terrible this morning, but had to go into work, so slapped my face on! fortunately, my manager sent me home cause i was so sniffly and minging hahaha! xx

Caroline said...

Wow I'm amazed! Even if we used the same products - YOU would still look best!! :)

You are amazing!!

Sigrid said...

omg i love before and afters. this is amazing. but i think u look great without makeup kandee

wildfox said...

You don't look the least bit sick in the after picture, kudos! Ahahaaa.

Christine said...

You're always beautiful (even when sick), Kandee. I'll be praying you feel better soon! xoxo

Miss Jessica said...

Aww Kandee love the transformation!! I see it on myself everyday, sick or not hahaha.... as for the red, raw nose from blowing your nose so much, i just want to recommend drugstore brand (I use Kleenex) lotion-infused tissues. They saved my nose from showing the pain of going through 3 boxes of tissues, and im sure they'll save yours too!! much love!! <3

Kiska said...

Kandee,

You are absolutely gorgeous both ways but I would love the details on what you used for you after look. And how about when you feel better a video on easy hairstyling, you're hair looks great as well! Feel better. XOXO

Nahee said...

Kandee! You looks gorgeous au naturel!! I think you should do a really "natural" looking make-up look. For those days when our skin needs to breathe or we just feel like wearing little or no make-up at all! You're amazing!!

JMartinez said...

What type of foundation and powder do you use? I am very Fair skinned and have a lot of REDNESS all over my face =(

Reous said...

Ι love befores and afters too!!!that's why I put so much color on my face.. I want to look different.. ;)

Amy said...

Poor Kandee! I hope you feel better soon! It's hard to find the motivation to put makeup on when your sick but if your going out, you gotta have your face on! Check out some of my before and afters on my website:http://amythehairandmakeupartist.webs.com/apps/photos/category?id=773488
Ignore the manikin ones if you want =)
Happy Holidays and get well soon!

Hi Kandee,

Kandee-beautiful transformation...and why we all love makeup right!!! I am sick too, so I am totally commiserating with you here! Feel better hon!

Allison said...

you still look gorgeous in your before!

ChaunCF said...

I'm sick too, I got sick with the similair head cold thing you have around the same time, I been taking Zicam and lot's of vitamin C seems to be helping. I haven't put makeup on though cause I don't want to get these germs in my cosmetics. thanks for sharing this post with us.

Jen said...

I looove before/after pics!! Here are links to my pics if you (or anyone else) want to see my latest incomplete* before and after!

*Incomplete because I took the photo before doing my eye lashes and lips! I was getting ready to leave and I ran out of time! Haha!

k. said...

i have a cold, too :( my eyelids want to swell up until they're closed, i can't taste anything, and i definitely can't breathe! i feel like i'm out of breath just after walking across the room! but i put make up on tonight because i wanted to celebrate my brother being home from college... even if i didn't feel better at least i *looked* better! concealer is a wonderful thing for hiding red tissue-blown noses :)
i hope you feel better really soon!!!!

mdlc5 said...

u look gorgeous either way! i would LOVE a tutorial on both the hair and make up you did... u look so beautiful!!

ShimmerStar84 said...

Mocha1980 said...

Kathryn said...

You are so beautiful without makeup Kandee! And you look like the sexiest god-like (LOL) human with makeup on! :) Feel better love <3 :)

Honey / Angelina said...

Now this right here is why I wish I was a make-up artist.

Astroa said...

You're adorable either way! Xoxo

Andra said...

your beauty shines from within so we love you in both pictures the same :D <3

Yen said...

You have a really nice skin! And that's what matters. :)

The makeup just enhances your look, not covers it. ♥

Litz said...

Thanks Kandee that helps, since I'm sort of sick too^_^ and I am going to do one of those transformations tonight since I'm going to a concert:P
Love the after look, and you look so cute in the before^^ and yes...it does feel like I've blown my nose about that many times aswell.. ^__^'

Belány said...

what a transformation :) but you look very pretty without make up too!

Brunette's Heart Makeup said...

summerhill said...

Wow, that is amazing. If you have time to do a tutorial it would be awesome! Hope you are back to feeling great. :)

beautifulsunnyday said...

I agree w/summerhill: I'd LOVE to see a tutorial of this "sick" before & after!! It'd be so beneficial for so many people! I think all of us have had colds & still needed to go to work or attended some event where we need to look decent, & we wanna hide the fact that we're sick. :) You must have some pretty good tricks to look THAT good when you're sick! Another thought: how to do your makeup after you've been crying all night. Puffy eyes & swollen nose are the worst. Thanks, Kandee! <3

Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia said...

Beautiful either way. I love the power of makeup to transform us and lift us when we don't feel so glamorous

JamieRebecca said...

mespejo49 said...

I don't know if you've heard about this, Kandee, but I saw it and I thought that you would be the PERFECT person to spread the message behind this project. Go to www.redefinechristmas.org `

easullivan69 said...

Kandee,
I really thought your favorites video was so so helpful! Love Love, the teaser brush. I didn't get the Monroe one but a type that's really close. The hairspray tips were great too. And guess what? I got the Pink Sugar hair spray! It smells so so yummy!

Kandee im having such trouble figuring out exactly what color for concealer/corrector I should get. I use NC30 or fresh beige color stay foundation so you kinda get an idea of the color of my skin tone, I have brown undereye circles thanks to the lack of sleep since my husband is serving in afghanistan right now. boo deployments lol! idk if it should be a pink or more of an orange based corrector i just realized i've been using the completely wrong color ive been using a fair colored concealer and well when i didnt have such dark circles it did the trick of brightening up my eyes but now i still see my dark circles even when i wear it.. thanks so much! sorry for the long question =/

Jenny said...

so beautiful, before AND after :)
hope you feel better soon!

kisses Kandee

SonyaLovesMakeup said...

That's you sick? Wow you look really good, I mean before you put on the make up that is. Natural beauty, you're so lucky. I wish I looked that good when I was sick lol.

I was wondering if you could have a look at my blog and give me a few pointers cos I value your opinion. Plus I know if I get advice form you it will be constructive criticism not someone just being mean and judgmental

Thanks :)

Colds are not fun. I'm currently experiencing one. Youre before and afters are the best. You are so talented. Hope you feel better and warm tea back at you.

Donyetta said...

Dude that's AWESOME. Makeup is sent from the heavens, I tell ya.

lovejourdan said...

An amazing homeopathic product I use when I am sick is Cold-Eeze (Not sure on the spelling). They are lozenges that contain Zinc. I took them every couple hours on the first day that I was feeling under the weather and was almost completely recovered the next day! They come in honey-lemon flavor and don't taste horrible like some other lozenges. Zinc is one of the best things you can take besides vitamin c when you have a cold or the flu. Hope this helps for the future! Love you Kandee! You have been a huge inspiration in my life.

and Godbless,

-Jourdan
