YouTuber Kandee Johnson Swears by These Beauty Products All Year Long

YouTube extraordinaire Kandee Johnson obviously knows a thing or two about beauty products, so when there's something she stands by, you know it's the real deal.

We caught up with the cutie at Doheny Room in West Hollywood, California, where she previewed Achi beauty's new line of scented gel polish, before giving us the lowdown on her favorite makeup lines of all time.

We know it's hard to balance what to wear between seasons, but below are Kandee's go-tos all year long, and how she feels about them in her own words:


I like Viseart. It's a professional makeup artist product, but it's the best eyeshadow in the world. You can buy it at any professional makeup place online. Every professional makeup artist has it in their palette.

For filling in eyebrows, hands down Anastasia of Beverly Hills dipbrow and the No. 12 brush. Those two and you've got magic. The thin one, you want thin and stiff to get the perfect brow.



If you use the L'Oreal white primer from the drugstore, it's like a bra for your lashes. You put it on and then boom.



I don't want to say it's my Candy liner that just came out because I think it's sold out, but the Clinique Pretty Easy Liner—it's the easiest to apply. Anyone can do it.


Lip Liner

I'm a big fan of just lip liner and a liquid lip. If I was going to do just two lip liners, I would do Cherry from MAC which is just the perfect red— everyone should own it—and then Soar lipliner from MAC. Those two colors should be in everyone's lip arsenal.



I've been obsessed with Clinique Beyond Perfecting for like two years. I gave it to my mom and she's like, "What is this? It's magic." It makes your skin look literally beyond perfect. It's amazing. I keep trying other ones and I just go back. And it's only $20-some dollars, it's not crazy.



I do love bronzer from Benefit.



Highlighter is so hard because I really like the Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight highlighter. It's amazing. And then the drugstore one, Physician's Formula, the little iridescent pearls. They're pretty good for a drugstore!
