|Sexy...Hot...Fab.....Fiercelicious Ms Kandi who is also known for her great make up artiste work,to book her for upcoming events and projects please email email@example.com|
1) Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?
My name is Peggy Richinsin otherwise known as Kandi. I am a single mother of 3 kids. I am a Bookkeeper by profession but I am also a makeup artist and a model during my spare time.
2) What 3 words best describe you as a person?
The 3 words that best describe me are Motivated, Independent and Outgoing.
3) Describe your fashion sense?
I would describe my fashion sense as Classy, Sexy and Trendy. Lately, I have been very interested in custom made or custom designed pieces. I started experimenting with odd color lipsticks such as greens and blues something out of the norm.
4) Do you think your a true representation of a today's woman if yes/no why?
Yes, I do. I believe I am a strong independent woman that works very hard in order to support my kids and make life comfortable. I work very hard in hopes to be very successful in the near future. I also keep myself up to date with the latest fashion trends and ensure I am always looking my best when I step out.
5) Tell us all about how you got started as a make up artist to this very day?
I started off as a model at first. I was in a competition where someone was hired to makeup the models, I was very disappointed with the way the makeup was applied and looked. That sparked a flame for me to learn how to apply makeup myself which by the way I also style my own hair. :D . Anyway, after many years passed and I slowed down with modeling, I saw Ms .Rogelia Euson was having a basic makeup class but due to certain circumstances I was always unable to attend. In the beginning of 2012, I contacted Ms. Eusonand pleaded with her to train me, by this time she had stopped giving classes, but seeing how determined I was she offered me, our own one on one classes, besides the classes with her I also watch Youtube videos, I read Blogs, and watch picture tutorials. My first gig was for a major fashion show at Holland House with Ms. Euson where we did make up for the Pure Magazine models. From that I went on to work with Vayo from Vay’la Photography during the summer photo-shoot package. And I guess after that things just took off, but I remain humble and I am always willing to help out the up coming models.
6) What are 4 tips women should follow when applying make up?
1. No black lip liner this is a MAJOR NO NO..unless you’re using black lipstick 2. Eye brows frame your face please have them shaped properly stop drawing a thin line for eyebrows. 3. Apply eye shadow application then your foundation. 4. When applying powder over foundation it is better to press it on with a powder puff as not to move the foundation/concealer you just applied.
7) What do you love most about being a make up artist?
I really love the expression on my clients face or the comments they make when they see the completed look and transformation. I believe makeup is meant to enhance your beauty. Oh, I have to add, I also love creating and forming eyebrows on clients that have little to none.
8)If you was to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear and why?
In all honesty, because I like different things with my own little touch to it. I would have to contact Cadella Marten, owner and designer of CM designs in Holland and work with her to create an outfit that no one else has, something specially designed for me.
9) What do you think of the Fashion Police News Blog?
I am very excited and happy that the Fashion Police news Blog as been created. This is a great way to showcase different talented people from all parts of the fashion industry. Hopefully in the future it can become a talk show on TV giving fashion tips to everyone and offering make overs. Keep up the good work!!!
10) What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
Well, if we have to look at the whole fashion world…some of the best clothing designers, makeup artist and hair dressers are men and they do a great job. I feel a man can see things in a different perspective to a woman, therefore a man teaching a woman to walk is a good thing especially if he has all the knowledge as Mr.Fierce.
Ummm.. I would go to Paris because of the fashion industry, the food and the romance.
12) Which other make up artiste do you look up to if any and why?
I look up Rogelia Euson, over the time she has encouraged me and taught me a lot about the makeup artist world, the good, the bad and the ugly. She also helps me with my weak points and ensures that we work on that to help me deliver my best work. She believes in me and my work , sometimes more than I believe in my own work and I am very grateful to her for all she has done for me and also for always calling on me to be her protégé when she has big gigs.
When I am not working I love relaxing in my bed watching my favorite TV shows and joking around with my kids and their friends.
14)If you could be the make up artiste for 4 people of your choice on the island of St Maarten who would they be and why?
Wow this is a good question. I really don’t have 4 people of choice I would want to make up at this time. But, I would love to be able to randomly select some women right out the clubs or off the street shopping and offer them a complimentary makeup. My reason for this is because many times I go out to the clubs or look at pictures and see a beautiful woman dressed nice but makeup is off or applied incorrect and I would like to explain and show the proper way to enhance her natural beauty.
A bad makeup artist for me is someone unprofessional, unhygienic, does not listen to his/her client, the work is sloppy and does not care about what the client looks like but cares more about the pay. A bad makeup artist does not love makeup or the work. If you do not love what you do and don’t care about how your client will look after.. ..do not claim to be a makeup artist and do not makeup others.

16)How can someone from the other side of the world learn more about you and book you for upcoming projects?
I unfortunately do not have a FB page reflecting my makeup skills or a portfolio set up, but I can be contacted via Facebook under my name MzKandi Richinsin, I also have some looks posted in my FB albums.
I see myself in 7 years having my own business offering trendy custom made jewelry, clothing, setup with a little studio where I can do my clients makeup and offer them inexpensive makeup and perfume, a place with a small lounge to sip wine and eat fruits while shopping and getting beautified, I would also like to teach basic makeup classes to teenagers and young women of St. Maarten.
Research the craft, decide what kind of makeup artist you would like to be, once you got the basic skills practice, practice and practice some more. Any chance you get to take a course and improve your skills and broaden your knowledge, take it. You do not need to start off with the most expensive products and tools there are good quality, reasonably priced products on the market. Again you have to do a lot of research.

Lololololol…They would be shocked to see that I am not always very well put together, at home I am makeup less and my hair is either slicked back or crazy if I did not wrap my hair before I went to bed and I will be dressed in old house clothes.
