If you follow my blog you see the name Kandee Johnson appear a lot. That is because she has been a very important factor in my life in regards of changes.
She is going through a rough time and she deserves some love and support.
I was at a point in my life where my world was crashing down on me and didn’t know how to keep going. At the time I would stay home a lot and watch feel good series as The Hills, The City and Laguna Beach. I became a fan of Lauren Conrad’s personality and I think she’s a beauty too. Then, one day I stumbled upon a Lauren Conrad makeup tutorial by Kandee and it was something I had never seen before.
The first time I did not even see her makeup art. What I saw was a sweet girl full of happiness and positiveness. Her bright spirit just beamed into my room. I was hooked. The second time I was hooked by her beauty and how she applied her makeup. But it wasn’t until I saw her video about how she encourages to follow your dreams that it hit me inside and just new that makeup artistry was the path I wanted to follow.
She recently lost her dad (read her story here) so I commented on her blog to support her. Never would I have guessed that my comment would hit so many likes and that she would write a reply:
Also other commenters replied to me, apparently I’ve touched some souls with my love and support. Thank you all!!!
–When I do makeup, I forget. I forget the past, the future and enjoy the present. I listened to my heart and followed my dream thanks to you Kandee.-
Big hug to you and keep on beaming your bright spirit!
Love and makeup,

It was a summers day in august 2010 when, inspired by MUA Kandee Johnson
, I found the right course in life for me: Make-up. Now one year later I have made my dream come true. Ever since I felt that sparkle come alive inside of me I followed it without looking forward, enjoying it to the fullest, taking it day by day.
I feel so happy to have developed this creative side of me, which I didn’t know I had.
Now I’m ready to explore this new world further and keep learning but most importantly:
I’m enjoying it today and do not worry about what tomorrow will bring me 🙂
I’m gonna leave you guys with the message from Kandee that really pushed me into following my dream and I hope it will help you too, should you feel you need that extra push 🙂
What a great invention. Absolutely love it.
In the past year I have found tons of life changing tutorials in my area of interest: Make-Up.
If you don’t want to become MakeUp Artist but you do want to know how to do a smokey eye, YouTube is the place as it is for many other ‘How-to’s’.

This trip to Los Angeles has been super special to me.
Also because this past year I’ve learned
a lot about who I am and what kind of person I want to be and
there is just no time like the present, with this trip I motivated myself
