The moment you are known for costume makeup looks...and all your good costumes are in storage and the only one you have is Wreck-It-Ralph & 5 minutes to get ready....and this is what you end up with ...kids didn’t even know who I was...well 2 kids did and I gave them hi-fives and extra candy!
BE-THOR & AFTER....from Girl to Thor, then Old Thor to New Thor!
♂️This could be the most fun costume idea!
This video is part of @marvelstudios month-long “Helaween” campaign so check out other content using #Helaween #ThorRagnarok in theaters November 3rd #ad #makeup #transformation #cosplay #costume #idea #beforeandafter
This picture is from a bad angle, the lighting isn’t good, my hair looks messy, and I barely have makeup on, it’s not good quality and kinda grainy and blurry...NOT A GOOD PICTURE from a “beauty guru”...
But I don’t care. This is me and how I look if you walked into my room right now. I love makeup and pretty pictures....but I love real moments and imperfections even more. Always remember the internet is full of illusions of perfect faces, bodies, relationships and lives...but I think the beauty is in the realness people share. Show me your hard times, your cellulite, your messy hair and beautiful no makeup faces....share the realness because each one of us needs realness. The fake stuff and lives just gets people depressed and it’s all illusions. No one has bad days, just perfect shopping trips, dinners, parties, vacations and and perfect lives!?! That’s the most delusional thing ever. Truth is, I’ve cried almost every day this week. And that’s ok. That’s the truth and the truth is beautiful and real and human. I’ve also got cellulite and stretch marks while we’re at it! #NoInternetIllusion #Stop #fake #instagram #depression
Yesterday meant so much to me and my mom @theshannonjohnson...
We went to @fidm where my mom had gone to school to be a fashion designer...but she fell in love with dad, got married and had me and raised me with a love of fashion design, art and inspiration. I wouldn’t be the person or artist I am without my mama!
Growing up I wanted to be a fashion designer long before I discovered makeup...my mom would watch a show called, Style with Elsa Klench -she showed all the runway fashion shows and interviewed the designers. I would watch along with my mom and then go spend hours designing entire collections.
When @patrickstarrr FaceTimed me at FIDM showing me the window display (because he was there seeing the fabulous window display they made of him too) the students had made of me, my mom and I started crying. And we continued to cry several more times. I’m so honored that any of the students would make this incredible window and honored by how much love the entire FIDM staff and faculty made us feel! What a joy, blessing and honor this was! Thank you so much @fidm and to each student that worked on this...I’m so honored, I love you and you don’t know what this meant to me and my mama! #fidm #fashion #design #love

Smiles in the midst of pain are a treasure to the heart. And these little smiles in this picture are priceless. Yesterday was the funeral for my cousin Ryan, and most of makeup had been cried off by the time we took this picture. These beautiful girls are Ryan’s daughters. It broke my heart watching them cry as their daddy was lowered into the ground yesterday. I know how I felt when my dad died and I was an adult, I couldn’t imagine it as a little, tiny girl. They are both having a very hard time and dealing with it in different ways. But watching them laugh and smile as they showed me the glittery LOL dolls I brought them, them telling me all the requests and ideas for transformation videos I should do yesterday, seeing their smiles, instead of tears for a moment, was a priceless treasure.
I talked with the girls about how my daddy is in heaven too & how their daddy is with them in their Heart all the time. And how we will live big to make our daddies proud from heaven and that they are not alone. Please pray for more smiles like these in Maggie and Lolo’s days. They are just the cutest and sweetest 3 smiles from 3 girls who’s dads are in heaven!

How to be a Barbie doll
COMMENT BELOW THE MOST BARBIE EMOJI YOU CAN THINK OF...♀️
(Look at my short blue hair)....if want to see the whole, “very entertaining” video....type “kandee Barbie” into the youtube or google search bar! #kandeejohnson #barbie #costume #makeup #transformation
This post is in honor of my cousin Ryan, on the far left...and that’s me on the far right. (His little sister Lisa was not in the photo mood and my little sister was concerned).
Yesterday after I finished filming I got news that Ryan had spent his last moments on Earth and is now in heaven I had posted on my IG stories & Facebook that just barely over 2 weeks ago that he was having excruciating headaches and went to the hospital to find out he had lesions on his brain causing swelling and bleeding and a tumor in his lungs. All from Melanoma (skin cancer). He thought he was fine a month ago...and now just barely over 2 weeks after going to the hospital he’s in heaven
This just makes me want to to tell everyone: PLEASE! PLEASE! Go get your skin checked by a dermatologist...any mole or discolored spot on your skin should be checked and can easily be treated and you’ll be fine but if not checked and it spreads to other organs, like my cousin (it is one of the fastest spreading cancers with an average of 29 people a day dying from Melanoma)...it ends up being beyond treatable.
My cousin was so kind and calm. He did 6 tours at war, has a beautiful wife, Alana and 3 precious little girls, 5 months, 7 & 9 years old. Please pray for them...his oldest daughter was having a hard time with just knowing he was in the hospital.
Please pray for his sweet mom, Jan and his sister, Lisa...(the one in the picture above)... It breaks my heart for them to not have their daddy because I was an adult and know how much that hurt to lose my dad.
I still can’t believe just two weeks ago I posted about the gofundme page to help with what we thought was going to be a month or so of him off work...until he got better from whatever we didn’t know was wrong.
Please everyone...be so thankful you have another day to be alive, be thankful for all your loved ones that are alive...tell them you love them. Each day is a gift, no matter how many challenges we face. And please, in honor of my cousin, encourage everyone you know to have their skin checked (annually)...29 people dying a day from Melanoma is too many precious people... #In #Honor #Of #RyanHysell
And then that time I turned myself into Betty Boop (boop bee doop)...HAVE YOU SEEN THIS VIDEO YET?! If you’ve never seen the “treat” that is this tutorial, filmed in my moms bathroom...just type “kandee Betty boop” into youtube.. #bettyboop #kandeejohnson #makeup #costume #ideas #transformation
Miley on the left...me on the right... can you spot the differences other than my eyebrows needed to be darker
This transformation @mileycyrus was crazy you guys....every detail from the neon lights and plants in the background, to her gun earring, nail bracelet and tattoo were recreated by the amazing family of people I worked with on my @glamourmag series #beautyrecovered where I turned myself into different pop stars. The letters on the top were hand court out of black tape by the amazing wardrobe genius @schlitzie!_________________________________________PS. IT TOOK ME FOREEEEEEVER TO GET THIS POSE RIGHT! —�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�oh my gosh....what if you guys tag @mileycyrus in the comments so she’ll see this!I would fall over!

Our hearts are heavy with sadness and broken with you Las Vegas. Our prayers for strength and comfort from heaven like a cozy blanket around your heart in this time of pain and grieving. I know the tragedy and pain of this shooting and each life lost and the fear and hope for each person still fighting for their lives in the hospital right now.
I know we are all sending our love and prayers, I know even in this world full of people who, for whatever reason, think and do the most horrific, evil things to others, that there are people who truly care and want to help.
I know that as early as 4am people were lining up to donate blood. The United Blood Services is in need of blood donors from those that are in Las Vegas right now. If you are in Vegas, you can go to any United Blood Services location. I also know that The Springs Church in Las Vegas is offering free grief & trauma counseling to all who are dealing with the tragedy. It breaks me heart we cannot do more.
I know people are getting upset from seeing posts about the shooting, people are getting upset people not posting about it, people are getting upset for seeing funny posts that seem "uncaring". Emotions are high, but let more love flow to everyone right now. More understanding. When you are devastated and have dehydrated your body from endless crying, you need to see something to give your mind and heart a little rest, something funny or distracting to ease break the pain that you will be enduring.
(I would watch stand-up comedy videos on youtube in the days after my dad died, because it was the only time in 24 hours when I took a break from crying and my head, eyes and body hurt from crying so much.)
Lift each other up today, in love, support, in giving people a break from pain.
This world is hurting everywhere. Las Vegas, Edmonton, those grieving Tom Petty, every hurricane ravaged location, in every city and home...we can't fix it all but we can offer support, prayers and make the people around us in life and on internet feel more loved. I know we’re all hurting please know I know...and I love you. #lasvegas # #
