Half Human Half Reptile Makeup (tutorial at the end)

Halloween is around the corner and that can only mean one thing…. it’s makeup time!!
For my first look i decided to recreate this amazing reptile look that i found on Makeupbya20something .
To recreate the look I used several products and I know you all want to know so here is a list of the products I used and ones that you could use:
Contact lenses: I bought mine in a hair store! Sorry! but there are many website where you can find them.
Body Lotion or Vaseline : I used Lancomes Nutrix Royal, but any cream would do! 
Face and Body Wax: I used Cinema Secret but you can use any molding wax (they come in some Halloween makeup kits)
Liquid Latex: I used Spirits Halloweens own latex.. but againg you can find it anywhere now.
Makeup sponge: I used a pack from cvs
Face Paint: I used Mehron AQ. you can use any cream makeup and get the same effect. $1 at Walmart
Black and Green Shimmer Eyeshadow: I used Matte Elite but they are discontinued. Any Eye shadow will do. 
Castor Seal (optional): Mehron caster seal. I used this to make it easier, but it’s not necessary.
Powder: I used Ben Nye Banana powder, but any powder will do.
Foundation:  I used My own brand (Beauty By Shaq Cosmetics Coming soon. ) Any foundation with good coverage will do.
Bruise Wheel: I used Mehron bruise wheel. but you can also use the cream makeup instead.
Blood: I’m Using Thick Blood from Graftobian and Stage Blood from Mehron, you can use Gel blood and 
vampire blood and they will do the same.
Fangs: I bought them at walmart
Eyeliner: Ofra Cosmetics (best eyeliner ever) any black eyeliner will do.
The rest is : Lipstick, and eyelashes and you can use your choice.
This look was easy to create and fun and everyone has loved it! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did! If you do please respond with a picture or tag me on instagram @beautybyshaq .

Vivant Skin Care

OK, so you may know me as a makeup freak! But My makeup would never look as good as it does if I didn’t take care of my skin!
Ladies, most women wait until it’s too late to start taking care of their skin and then they invest in Botox and other things like it! Don’t follow this trend! If you start young, you have a great chance of having great looking skin when you are older!
I’m an Esthetician, I enrolled in school because “I liked to pop pimples” (gross I know! LOL) But when I started really learning I was hooked! and I love to help friends, family and , clients with their skin care issues!

With that said… When I heard that Vivant Skincare was looking for people to try their products, I was like “MEEEEEE!!!!” Unfortunately I wasn’t chosen! but later they emailed me and asked me if I would try their cleanser and I said “YES!!!” 
I’m glad I did! Their Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser is amazing! Wow what a feeling, It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, energize and so clean! I love that you only need a very small amount of product, it lathers just right and it gets the job done! 
I only wish they would have sent me other products to try! (I’m a serum junkie!)

I’ve been using it for a few days and I can already see my skin brighter and feeling softer! I think I’m officially hooked on this product!
A few facts about this cleanser : Is a universal cleanser with antioxidants, green tea, grape seed and kiwi extracts… yum!! (for my skin of course!)  and it helps to preserve the skins natural acid mantel! It’s great for all skin types! 
You  really couldn’t ask for a better product for the great price! 
They sent me the 2oz bottle which retails for $11.00
Their 8oz bottle is just $29.50 
and Their 16oz (wow) just $53.50
Check them out, you wont regret you did! And That’s my honest opinion!
