ONE CHOICE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE... 10 years ago today this picture was taken. I hadn’t started youtube yet (I would start that in January, which will be my 10 year anniversary of being on @youtube ) I was just a freelance makeup artist, that had started writing a blog about makeup, which is where I posted this fine, blurry photo from my 1 megapixel camera. Blogs were the Instagram of 10 years ago - there was no Instagram then- crazy huh? My eyebrows were skinnier, I had baby bangs & my hair was darker. I had no clue how to film, edit or even get footage onto a computer. I just wanted to share my love and knowledge of makeup...so I decided to not give up and figure how to do it even though I had no one to tell me, help me or teach me and barely anyone was doing youtube back then. And no one knew how to do makeup unless they were a makeup artist...not like today, everyone is to talented and knows how now!✨ Even if you don’t know how to do something...just get started and figure out what you need to, to make it happen! ONE CHOICE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE...I decided to blog, then I decided to start Youtube and it changed the entire direction of my life. Don’t be afraid to make a choice that could change your future for the better. What will you decide to do today that will change your future? #tbt

By “Instagram influencer” standards this is a fail: 1️⃣. This is not a good angle, photo or pose. 2️⃣. It was only taken by me, arm distance away, in bad lighting in a car. 3️⃣. I’m not wearing a new outfit, I’ve never worn before...which would be totally awesome and fun. And nothing is wrong with that but sometimes even I feel like “oh I’m not gonna post because people have seen me in this hoodie 8000 times...” BUT... The truth is, I got this hoodie because I love it. And yes, I wear it ALL the time. It’s big, cozy and it’s got Tupac on it...so even tho I mostly travel alone...it’s kinda like it’s me and Pac’ always headed home to the West Coast😂😂😂😂 ♥️your being awesome doesn’t depend on what’s in your closet or on your body. And style is wearing what you love...your favorite things. Even if it is wearing it allllllll the time. 💁‍♀️and if you want this same hoodie to wear 8000 times...I got it from @morgasm.fam (Morgan & Tara are awesome, when I thought I lost my credit card after buying stuff from their booth at the Melrose Trading post, they offered to give me 20 bucks in case I needed to get gas on my way home!👊 They are good people!) PS. I live in hoodies every day. #Why #Im #Not #A #Good #instagram #style #fashion #person #😂

This was me 6 months ago...I was eating 90% really-really clean, no sugar, working out with heavy weights 3-5 times a week and running. I felt great, had tons of energy, didn’t crave sweets or sugar, I loved the endorphin mood boost from working out, my abs were starting to come out and say “hey” and I was feeling really strong!💪🏼 I was on target to hit my goal of being in the “best shape of my life” AKA “I gotta six pack” by my birthday... But then my grandma was hospitalized. Being worried about her and spending days and nights in the hospital, I was eating whatever they had from the Starbucks in the hospital lobby for most of my meals. My heart was breaking, I was emotionally & physically exhausted. I never met my birthday goal and I didn’t care. 5 months ago today, just 2 days after my birthday, my grandma relocated to heaven & I lost my momentum and desire to workout again💔 I just realized how many months it’s been and how much running and working out has actually helped clear my mind & get through some hard times in my life. I’d run hours after losing my dad while tears ran down my face until it turned to smiles and I’d feel my dads love shining down on me from heaven like the sunshine on my shoulders. I know my grandma would be cheering me on telling me to do one more rep, to have more fun & dance more. So I may not have the urgency of a birthday, months away, anymore but I want to feel strong, look strong, I want the stress relief & endorphin boost from working out. No more saying I don’t have time, I’m too tired...time to be determined, committed and feel look strong, feel strong. Not waiting for a New Years resolution either! Ha ha who wants to join me?!?

Sometimes to make it look like you have more clothes...just wear your t-shirt (as a dress) backwards..😂 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• T-shirt: @harleydavidson JACKET: it’s actually a dress but I’m only gonna wear it as a jacket @houseofcb MYSTERY HANDS: @chrisdylanhair (he’s always making my hair look better) BLACK TIGHTS: who knows BOOTS: oh never mind, you can’t even see em #ootd but really from a few days ago 😜

THE TRUTH...

KANDEE JOHNSON (@kandeejohnson)

When someone says “just do like a natural pose” 😂🤣😂🤣😂 ————————————————————— I still can’t believe that, many years before youtube, when I was a makeup artist and I’d save up my money to stock my kit with all the #macstudiofix concealers and powders (and they made these cool Concealer sticks I was obsessed with back then too!) to even years before that when I bought my first MAC spice lipliner and became obsessed with Myth lipstick. I would just wander through the MAC store like I was a kid in a toy store. If you would have told me years ago, when was depressed, feeling like nothing was good in my life and like nothing good was in my future either...I’d check my bank balance to only see 11 cents in it sometimes, I didn’t even have enough money to buy HALF an eye liner from MAC, that they they’d ask me to go to Paris with them in the future...😱there’s no way I would’ve ever believe it. ——————————————— Whatever your passion or dreams in life are...no matter how impossible or hard it might seem, no matter if you can’t even afford a dollar store eyeliner (I couldn’t even afford a “quarter store” eyeliner years ago)...you have no idea what is waiting ahead to surprise your socks off! The best dreams grow out of hardships & difficulty. I am a living example of that! I hope this encourages someone today❤️ The gratitude & thankfulness I feel, from years ago when I didn’t have enough money to even buy one thing from MAC...to knowing they asked me to go to #parisfashionweek ...oh gosh, it makes my eyes fill with tears😢❤️ THANK YOU @maccosmetics & I hope someone reading this feels encouraged because maybe you’re feeling the same as I did, years ago.❤️ keep going beautiful, you have no idea the great things up ahead for you❤️ #tbt #ootd #paris #makeup #with #maccosmetics

Are we TOO close?!?🤣 Here’s a way too close look at my makeup & eyebrow hairs... ——————————————— WHAT I’M WEARING: I’m slightly obsessed with the @toofaced #TuttiFrutti Sparkling Pineapple Palette... I’m wearing YUM YUM on the top lid & COCONUT SUGAR & ISLAND QUEEN in the crease & to smoke out lower lash line. I’m also obsessed with the SUGAR PEACH EYE & FACE palette from @toofaced - I use the shade peach pearl to highlight nose, inner corner of eye & cheekbones. Everyday. 💋And on the lips I’m wearing my (it is long sold-out and gone😭) @toofaced collab color in SWEET N SOUR & I dabbed the (from the Sugar Peach Palette again) the shade Peach Honey on the center of my lips (which everyone asked what it was all night!🙈💋) MAKEUP BY: me HAIR: I just put the “Carrie” wig from my friend @mykie ’s Wig collab with @bellamihair #makeuptutorial #holiday #christmas #makeup #ideas
