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!

Cheshire Cat inspired makeup look

Hello Beauty addicts!!
For my second Halloween makeup look teamed up with my friend and co-worker Karla.
She’s an amazing artist who is looking to start a YouTube  channel, so we did this look to get her 
started.
We created this look using Mehron paradise cake makeup, this is a makeup that you activate with water. the trick is to get a consistency of pancake batter… lol… yes… wet but not liquidy, that would give you a better coverage and it’s easier to blend!
However if  you don’t have these products, you can always try to recreate it with eye shadows, cream colors or even eye liners!
have fun! if you try this look tag us on instagram i’m @beautybyshaq and she is @_kgmakeup

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)

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.

so many events so little time!! What a rush!!

Hello Beauty Addicts!! Hope this November finds you in good standings and Happy moments!!

October was a crazy month for me! Activities with no end!
 I’m so glad it’s over, but then again I kinda miss the fast paced, crazy work life….
           
As many of you may know, I’m a make up instructor at a beauty school, so needless to say, when October rolls around, everyone wants a piece of me or at least an extra hour of my class, because everyone wants to know how to work with special fx and how to create great looks for their parties and outings, not to mention We participate in different events as a school and this year we had 3 hunted houses back to back.
 I Love it!
 

The month started with my students and I working on the movie set for the movie “The Shift” so I had my students audition to be makeup artist and then I trained them, and then we went on to shoot the 
movie for a couple of days.

 After that I started my FX classes, which were full every day, 3 times a day! 
so that’s crazy! 

Then I started training them to work in the hunted house. I have teams of 20 students and 3 hunted houses, which had several meeting and I had to get together a list of supply’s for each and for some I had to go find the supplies my self! Then came time for me to split my self in 3! LOL I managed and it was great!!
Then I couldn’t forget about my youtube family so I had to film some Halloween tutorial, and in the mist of it all I also did a contest! LOL!! I’m crazy!
 I won’t complain, I love every minute of this fast paced make up artist life! 
Now i’m back to the regularly schedule program! LOL.. Teaching and doing Jobs in the weekend, and Filming my tutorial and writing my blog and maintaining my Facebook page!…. Never a dull moment! Oh and don’t forget trying to squeeze personal life in there some where…
Just Kidding! I squeeze everything else in to fit into this! My son and my relationship with God are my Life! Everything else is a plus!
I wanted to leave you with some great Pictures of all the events I Worked on during the month of October and Of course  the great Halloween tutorial I created!!
Happy Zombie dreams until next time Beauty Addicts!!!
