Hello beauty Addicts, let’s talk about Pop Beauty Highlighters.

Today I want to talk to you about these beautiful pop beauty highlighters. I receive these in the mail as a PR package for me to try, but my opinions are my own.

First of all, once I saw this package I was in love them and how the package looks like a candy when you open it, and that  rocks!

Second, who can go wrong with highlighters? I love highlight the more the better, I want to look like a glazed doughnut all the time… don’t you?

The package came with four beautiful colors In shades ranging from light to dark.

Shades:
Stellar light
Gilded light
Celestial light
Lunar light

They’re calling these highlighters prismatic pop, they are beautiful colors ranging from Golden to silver and even reddish pink tones.

They claim these are light reflecting illuminators, and  they’re going to help you express your luminous glow to the world and I agree.

What I personally liked about these highlighters is that they are a creamy texture and it does not look powdery. These highlighters feel like butter on the skin and look velvety smooth. When on the skin they look like they are part of your skin rather than something on top of your skin.  As a result, this made these highlighters stand out for me.

Most of all I love the quantity and quality of the product with the price of the product as well, at only $12 these highlighters won’t break the bank.

To conclude my rant I like to say that these highlighters are great! They are a great value and go on amazing on the skin. So, should you try these highlighters? I say do it,  you will not regret it.

Wet-N-Wild Pro Brush Set

Hello Beauty Addicts

Welcome back to Beauty By Shaq!

Today I wanted to talk you about the new Wet-N-Wild Pro Brush set for the holidays.

Let me tell you a bit about them first:

. It’s cruelty free

. Densely packed, ultra-soft bristles

. Synthetic bristles mimic the consistency of natural hair

. Ergonomic handle for total control

My favorite thing about them is the ergonomic dip, it makes it so easy to use the brushes. Their hair is soft but still firm, and that’s why I think they are a good buy.

You can find them at Walgreens, it usually retails for $30, but this week if you have their rewards card you get them 50% off.

I first saw the pro brush set when I went into Walgreen’s for an errand I had to run. The Wet-N-Wild makeup brushes were front and center. It was like they were calling my name, I had to go to them and check them out!

The Wet-N-Wild Pro Brush set which includes 10 brushes, was advertised for $30 with a value of $90. I thought this was a great deal, so much so that I told my son that if he wanted that was something he could buy me for Christmas.

As I went on with my day I didn’t think much of the brushes. Later I start surfing through Instagram, one of my favorite accounts @trenmood1 they were  talking about the brushes. I read the description and it says they are 50% off 😮! Online or in store, but online had already sold out!

I worried a little and wondered if I should go and get it .. it was late at night, instead I waited and went first thing in the morning.

I teach at a Beauty school and of course I shared the news with the Students and by 12pm it was sold out from the two Walgreens by my Job! Lol!! If you can find it, you should definitely go get them!

Needless to say the Wet-N-Wild Pro Brush Set is worth the money, are great quality and beautiful!

Half Skull & Half Glam Halloween Makeup

Hello Beauty Addicts!
Welcome back to Beautybyshaq!
Today I bring you this awesome look for Halloween!
I wanted to create a few looks this October, some ideas you could use this festive season, for parties or even trick or treating!!
I wanted to start by sharing the products I used, and links so you can find them easy!
First thing I used is 3rd degree:
This is a 2 part silicone prosthetic material, that when mixed together, you have about ten minutes to shape and mold into what you would like before it gets hard and stays that way! This product while is still wet, you can blend and clean off  with 99% alcohol.
If you don’t have this product, don’t panic! you can still create this look without it! Simply using gel blood for the division or nothing at all! It will still look great and people will be talking about your makeup all night!
Next I used my favorite eye shadow primer at the moment.. this one is from sephora it’s their eye shadow primer and Glitter hold! 
another of my favorite products and one of my favorite brands it’s this Highlight and Contour palette from Crown brush. This palette come with neutral eye shadows and highlighters, bronzer and blushes! definitely a must have in your bag of tricks.
also from crown this amazing trio palette !
Omg i’ts all I use lately!
Another of my favorite brands (seriously i use it all the time) it’s Ofra Cosmetics.
In this tutorial I used their Bright addiction palette and as always their Black gel eye liner.

(more pictures of the look)
In this tutorial I used my Kat VonD foundation (in shade 62) which is full coverage long wear and tattoo cover up.
I love it because it covers all! I also used her Everlasting liquid lipstick in outlaw.

I use my BenNye cameo loose powder, I love how these powders set my makeup.

My latest addiction the Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm.

For the face painting part of this look I used Mehron Paradise Makeup in Black White and LT-Brown
Last but definitely not least my Thick Blood from Bennye.
Of course all these products are amazing, but you can totally get this look using stuff you already have or things from the nearest pharmacy or Walmart.
The important thing is to have fun recreating this and other looks and rocking them out or have your own privet photo shoot! lol! If you do recreate this or any of my looks tag me on Instagram or email me or leave it here on my comments!
Have fun!

Zombie Makeup

Everyone love zombie makeup now…. right?? I do!
There’s so many different way to make a zombie, and this is one more.. but I’ll give you insight in products and how to use them. At the end, I’d love to get your feedback!
To begin, I like to prep my model with contact lens, they always give any zombie look the perfect touch!

Next is all the “scars, bite marks, deteriorating” To create the angry eyebrows I used a foam latex prosthetic that I bought at The Silly Farm . I used Prosaid which is used to glue prosthetic to skin, then I went on to create the scars and deteriorating skin with 3rd degree… a 2 part silicone product that you mold and have ten minutes to play with.  On the neck, that’s where she was bitten to become a “zombie” I used oatmeal and latex, I mixed them together to create this look! On the legs I applied latex waited for it to dry and started making holes.

Then I took the most pale color from dinair and airbrushed her whole body…. to give it that dead look you know! LOL!

Next I took my Mehron Bruise wheel and added dead bruised coloring around every wound and cut! I also used black cream to give the illusion of depth.

Next I used my new favorite Mehron tooth fx and used the red and black to give a decaying FX to the teeth!

Isn’t she lovely?!?!?!?!

I like doing my blood splatter outside… and with good reasons.. “my boss hate when the whole school looks like a massacre happened lol” I use Mehron Stage Blood to drip in the areas that i wanted, then watered it down and used it for splatter everywhere else!
and Viola!
