Candyce Johnson, Makeup Artist and Owner of Glam Candy Makeup Artistry
How Did You Determine Your Passion?
I have always had a passion for beauty. I have always loved the art of makeup and the way in transforms. My mother, who is a licensed cosmetologist, always told me to follow my dream no matter what it was that I wanted to do. Because I wanted to be like her, I tried doing hair. I loved it but I was not passionate about it. I knew that I wanted to still be in the beauty industry. I then stepped out and did my first wedding in 2013, and I have been in love ever since.
What Challenges Have You Had To Overcome?
I had to overcome many challenges. Wanting to give up because of the lack of support from those I thought would have supported me, Thinking that I wasn't good enough because I tried to compare myself to others. as well as being scared to JUMP.
How Do You Stay Focused?
I stay focused and productive on my dream by always thinking of my family and our future. I love the thought of being home when my son gets home from school and my husband gets home from work. I also love linking up with like minded business oriented people. I am also enhancing my craft by learning new techniques daily.
