YouTube style guru Kandee Johnson calls her most popular video her 'worst'


YouTube style guru Kandee Johnson calls her most popular video her 'worst'

With a YouTube channel that's collected almost 400 million views, style guru Kandee Johnson says her "worst" video of the bunch also happens to be her most popular.

Chatting last month with What's Trending's Shira Lazar at VidCon 2016, Johnson explained why she despised one of her own lip-tattoo tutorials.

"I'm wearing this sequined shirt. ... My hair looks bad. The light looks bad. Everything looks bad," Johnson said. "And it's my most popular video ever. I hate it."

Johnson's 2011 "Glitterati Lip Tattoo & Lip Word Tattoo" video has 35 million YouTube views, almost 10 million more than her second-most-popular video.


Johnson may be tough on herself, as she also criticized her favorite video from her YouTube channel.

"My favorite would probably be [my] Snow White [tutorial], if I didn't have the singing in it," she said. "I hate ... that I sang like Snow White in it."

She asked herself with a cringe, "Why? Why did you do the singing?"

In another segment of the VidCon interview, Lazar and Johnson discuss the style expert's life as a mother of four, and the way Johnson's social-media presence blew up after Ashton Kutcher's Twitter feed cited her Barbie makeup tutorial.
