It’s a #GlowDown throw down with OG beauty YouTuber Kandee Johnson! After a decade of teaching makeup how-to’s as “the happiest channel on YouTube,” Kandee is now a mom of four whose viral transformation tutorials – like the one where she morphs herself into Barbie or Kim Kardashian into Princess Jasmine – have earned nearly 4M subscribers. In today’s episode, the natural ray of sunshine explains the real reason she took a one year hiatus from YouTube last year, and the motivation behind her official comeback video, “Mama’s Back,” posted in recent weeks.

Finally, she-of-rainbow-hair fills us in on the backstory behind her first ever permanent hair range collab, OGX Kandee Pop!Glam, including a low-key use for her Kandee-sweet smelling dry shampoo you’ve gotta hear to believe.
