Sneek Peek Surprise!

Yay! Not only did I make one new video yesterday...but 2....
this is one of my favorite "green" looks...with hot pink "matte" lips!
and then...
I did my most requested, EVER....make-up look...the wedding/prom look I had done of my Bethanie...
I had her picture in my portfolio and seriously, everyone always requested the make-up look I had done for her...whether it was their wedding day or just special event..everyone LOVED, LOVED LOVED this look..and so do I! hee hee
It glamorous, glowing, a little smokey, yet not heavy eyeshadow...shimmery and just plain gorgous...and this make-up looks great on every eye and skin color and tone!

So yesterday we re-created it (when we had a slumber party at my house: click here if you wanna read about it on my kandeeland bloggy!)...
get ready to have a new glamorous wedding or prom look!
(We were laughing how her hair looks nothing like prom or wedding hair! ha ha...just imagine her hair in a fancy updo! ha ha)

(PS. remember when I said I was going to do the Mila Kunis look...the lighting was so bad I can't use the video I shot...I'll have to re film it later!)

these looks are comin' just takes me hours to they'll be up soon....

I have some fun surprises to share with you these videos are in the line up to be edited...
(and yes, it takes me days to get a video finished! ha ha ha)

packing up sparkles to send your way...huge love, kandee

My Day in San Francisco at Levi's!

I look like a dark haired Doris Day walking down the street! ha ha ha
 I have no idea where they got these "wipe off" quotation boards...but I love them!

So for everyone that didn't get to come and meet me when I was in San Francisco at the Levi's store to do a meet and greet....
here's what it was like...!!!

And a huge thank you to Levi's for inviting me to their big Curve ID event...and for giving me 2 pairs of jeans!!! Yay! I am actually wearing them as I type this!...

They even offered to film me and edit this video for me....
it was so funny because it's normally just lil' ol' me with my video camera all by myself...
and they had a whole film crew and microphones...and fancy camera's...
definitely not how I normally film and do everything myself! ha ha ha

they edit wayyyyy better than me!!! this video looks so awesome..unlike my normal videos! ha ha

this is awesome...because it usually takes me hours and hours to film, upload,edit, and finally export a video...! So this is an awesome present...thanks Levi's!

Hope you guys like being a butterfly in my get to see everything! yay!

blue jeans and san francisco....
your kandee

My Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor: an inspired look

Elizabeth Taylor...
not only one of the world's most beautiful women...but a legend, icon, and example of a true
glamorous and gracious woman...will be truly missed!
One of the most beautiful things about Elizabeth she knew that true beauty had nothing to do with what you looked had to do with your heart!
look at how gorgeous, young Elizabeth Taylor was....
she was stunning from childhood!
not only was she breath-takingly, unreal-ly beautiful...but she had violet eyes to sparkle at the world! (which you can't even see in this black and white picture)
her face just made you want to stare at her, because she didn't look real!
she was gorgeous at every age....

i love this picture...
I wanted to do a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor...
so I thought of all the things and looks that remind me of, cleopatra, her lavender eyes, and ofcourse her trademark eyebrows!

(the look I created for Cleopatra, was inspired by her make-up as Cleopatra)
And this is my Elizabeth Taylor inspired look...
...I didn't want to re-create her look...I don't have the stunning features she did...(ha ha)...I just wanted to include all the elements that made me think of her...
and I incorporated her love of diamonds (diamond glitter eyelids) and her lavender eyes and ofcourse her classic eyebrows,  to create this look in honor of the beautiful, Dame Elizabeth Taylor...
you're beauty will live on...
so here may I present my tribute to Elizabeth Taylor....

huge love, your kandee

girls in lots of cool thigh high leather boots and pirate style boots

DIY: HOW TO Make Your Own Natural Eye Make-Up Remover

Get ready to cook up your own eye make-up home!

Totally natural...super cheap...and so good for your skin!
Not only will you be able to get rid of every bit of "smoky eye" evidence or black liquid liner...

but your skin is going to look better and younger!

Here's the ingredients:
*Witch Hazel (I wish it had  a nicer sounding name!)
Witch hazel is an astringent produced from the leaves and bark of the North American Witch Hazel shrub. It was used for many medicinal purposes by the Native American Indians.

It's  used as a natural remedy for everything from psoriasis, eczema, aftershave applications, ingrown nails, to prevent sweating of the face, cracked or blistered skin,  insect bites, poison ivy, and as a treatment for varicose veins and even hemorrhoids! ha ha
how did it get it's spooky name?
I always thought it sounded like it should be in a funny tall, mysterious botle...maybe in the wagon of an old Charlatan selling potions and brews! ha ha ha
It comes from the Middle English word wiche, from the Old English wice, which means"bendable".When  British settlers arrived in the Americas, they fancied witch hazel as great replacement for chores because of it's pliable, crooked branches.

click here to see where to get witch hazel (especially if you don't live in the North America)...I got mine at Whole Foods...or you can get it at any drugstore, in the department where they sell Rubbing Alcohol, or as I learned they call it in the UK, Surgical Spirits (i personally like it being called Surgical Spirits! ha ha)
*olive oil ( I use organic olive oil, but you can use conventional "regular" olive oil too)

Save money....look even's a win win!

Now let me show you how to cook up the best eye make-up remover!

huge love and loads of black eyeliner...your kandee

Oh What a priceless gift you all are!

yesterday was so amazing and i just want to thank everyone that came out and patiently waited in line so long to let me hug them at the Levi's store in San Francisco!
 (really blurry and really rainy!)
Since I've never done anything like this before...I had no idea how it would go!
And they offered to film and document my day for me to upload on youtube, so everyone that missed it could see what it was like.
The funny part is, they had "real" fancy video cameras and lights..and microphones...and a whole crew!
I'm used to it being just me...doing everything myself - no fancy lights or crews or anything! ha ha
I took alot longer to shoot everything that way, than when I do it! ha ha ha

The absolute best part was seeing everyone that came!
And for everyone letting me hug them and take pictures with them!
(I love her leopard pants!)
And Ora, from France, who was dressed so cute (everyone was so cute and stylish!)...even blogged about it and had some fun behind the scenes pictures that are so fun!
click here to read her blog about it!

 I wanted to thank every, precious and beautiful face and heart, that I got to see yesterday!
That was the best part!
To see all your precious faces, hug you, and hopefully add a little more love to your heart!! That meant the world to me!!! You have no idea how much each one of you mean to me...and to feel your love in person is something I can't even try to describe with words! Each one of you has become like a beautiful flower, in the garden of my heart...
sometimes we all get lonely and sad...but knowing that someone loves you can help you get through anything! You guys have helped me in sad times just sending me your love filled words! And I want you to know, even though I haven't been able to meet you in person...(i don't need to see your face...:)...I love you!

 I want to thank Levi's...not just for giving me some awesome jeans (that I'm wearing right now) or for letting me eat free cupcakes at the Curve ID event, hee hee...but for giving me the chance to meet everyone in San Francisco...that was a priceless gift and day and I will never forget it!

I am so sorry if I didn't get to spend as much time with each one of you....the production team had a really crazy schedule to get everything done...and I had to make sure I didn't mess anything up for them! so I'm so sorry....if it was just me I would've stayed there for hours! (well, as long as baby stayed sleeping with my mom! ha ha click here to read how much I was running back and forth! ha ha)

And to Brooks (with the beautiful eyes): I tried to post the picture I took of us but both of our eyes were closed! You are going to be amazing!

huge love from San Francisco...where we are stuck for one more day because of a severe storm warning and the possibly closing the roads to get home today! (good  thing we brought extra socks and undies! ha ha)...
your kandee

Acid washed nails!!!

I even did my nails to look like jeans today! They are even textured like denim!
I used a dark blue polish and a silvery glitter one for texture.

1. first paint the glitter polish on to get texture
2. then go over it with the blue polish
I did an "acid washed" look on my thumb!
Just reverse the order

1. first paint on you blue polish
2. then go over with the silvery glitter to look like the acid-vintage wash jeans!
SOOOO fun...and you nails feel so cool!

You can do this with any polishes...but in case you want to know what I used...
Societal TRansformation and Just a Bit of Bling by Dreams by Neihule polish!

Now I'm off to go to the Levi's event with my denim nails!
Yay...I'll tell you all about it later!
love in blue jeans....your kandee

I got a haircut!

Tada! My new haircut!- Cut by none other than yours truly.
My favorite haircuts....have been the ones I've given myself! ha ha ha  And it saves you all kinds of money!  Unless you do a real bad job and have to pay to get it fixed!

I cut all these "kandee haircuts" myself:
(unfortunately I can't find any pictures with my nearly shaved head...this is as close as we got and this is months afterwards, with just little bits of hair peeking out of my headband...ha ha ha)

I would have done a video, but I was worried I might really mess it up, and my cutting style is pretty non-traditional and non-prefect....I just sculpt it with a razor where ever if feels like the hair is too heavy! So, just whatever feels right! ha ha ha
Don't worry....that top picture looks like I whacked off all my hair, but I left a little on the bottom!

What I did:
*blow dryed my hair like normal
*then once you can see where your hair wants to go when it's dry...
 just carve away with the razor
*I cut my bangs and carved out little chunks, like in my how to cut your bangs at home video
(I'll post it below...I love how I'm still wearing that same shirt from 2 years ago in videos that I just made!ha ha...and my old favorite yellow amber ring and watch, are in this video...I miss them!)
~cool tip:
think of your hair like curling ribbon on presents...
how you carve it with the side of the scissors into a curl....
that how you carve your hair to curl or curve where you want it to

Have fun with your hair...when I was in beauty school, my hair was a different color every few weeks...and so many different hair styles....
red, platinum, burnt orange, dreads...bob, short pixie cut, longer Amelie like hair....

happy hair day...from my trash can full of the hair I cut off! ha ha ha...kandee scissor hands
