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!

Sephora Collection: Disney Minnie Beauty

Disney Minnie Beauty Collection

If you are a Disney fan like I am, then this collection will make your day!
I was walking the mall, just enjoying the day, when there it was.. at the entrance of Sephora (it’s like they put it there on purpose lol) naturally I had to go inside.
The collection is everything you could hope for!! They have several items, but i only bought 3.

usually when you get a collection like this, i’m afraid of the eyeshadows because most of the time the pigment pay off isn’t worth it.. but that’s not the case with these. These eyeshadows are very pigmented and true color pay off.

The to die for Minnie-ature cream Lip Stain Set.

The colors for this collection are perfect for me, all the colors i love in one set.

 My favorite part of this collection  Minnie’s Black & White Felt Eyeliner Duo.

These eyeliners are beautiful! I love the colors (black and white) they are vibrant, and long lasting.
Tote Bag

This is the cutest bag ever… naturally i had to get it too! This bag is available (while supplies last) to beauty insiders for only 250 points.

Ok now for the sad part… what I didn’t get:
Brush up on Glamour Minnie’s Beauty Tools             Perfect Red Lipstick
Minnie’s Inner Glow Luminizing Blush                     Minnie’s Aren’t you Gorgeous Hand Held Mirror

Reflection of Minnie Compact Mirror

The collection is beautiful! I expected it to just be ordinary, just for looks, but after testing it out and playing with it a bit, I discovered that this collection is well worth it. The collection is not only beautiful but also well made, all the colors are very pigmented and the lip colors long lasting without drying out!

Hope you enjoyed this review of Sephora Disney Minnie Beauty Collection.

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
