Avon Mega Effects Mascara

I am a mascara freak. So when I heard the news that Avon had a mascara that was new and innovative and it is the first time that mascara had changed in 50 years, I had to try it.
 I must admit, I wasn’t convinced, but it’s shape had me intrigued. A square mascara, have you ever seen such a thing?!?! I immediately posted the information on Instagram and Facebook, I heard from one person that there was a mascara like this in Japan but I haven’t seen it so, the minute I had the chance, I ran to my Avon store and I bought the last one.
My favorite mascara are “definicils” from Lancome and “they’re real” from Benefit just to give you an example of the standards of mascara I’m used to and, I can say that this one is almost just as good not only that so much easier to use!
I love it because of its shape and the fact that it’s easy to apply, and it gives you great length and volume. It has a great quality and  it gives you great looking lashes, and it’s just $10. What a steal! So my suggestion to you is, before you spend a lot of money on these expensive mascara, try this one you won’t regret it… It’s great!

Oh My Ofra!

If you’ve ever been to a beauty school, you’ve probably heard of Ofra cosmetics. If you’ve ever been to a beauty show, you’ve probably heard of Ofra cosmetics. If you’ve ever used makeup at all, you probably used Ofra cosmetics.
Ofra cosmetics is a line that is dedicated to creating high quality cosmetic products for professionals.
They also make products for different companies, so chances are that you have had used Ofra products but did not even know it.
I had the amazing honor of meeting the owner Ofra. Her and Carine came to one of our campuses to do a demonstration and talk about the amazing products.
.

They are both charming and knowledgeable. It was a great pleasure of mine to meet them.
I’ve been lucky to work with Ofra products since I started working at my campus three years ago. I’ve loved them since. Ofra cosmetics is now coming out with so many new and exciting products.
I was very blessed to receive three of their products to review for you.

I have nothing negative to say.

They are amazing. If I love them, you will too.

So let’s get started.
Our first product is RCK (Red Carpet Kolour) Body Glow.
Can you say red carpet ready?
Many celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Denise Richards have used this product.
It gives your skin a beautiful glow. Your skin look bright and blemish free. When you’re done, it simply washes off.
Our second product and personally my favorite is… The Triple Black Eyeliner.
Ok, I have a testimonial for you guys and dolls.

I have teary eyes. Every eyeliner I’ve used runs… it cannot fight with my tears. There are only two eyeliners that have succeeded and THIS is one of them. By far, this one is my favorite because I can use it for both top and bottom eyeliner and it’s so dark.

The third and final product is my favorite of the three the Bright Addiction Palette.
If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter, I’m sure you’ve seen me several photos of different eye looks I’ve done these past few weeks.

These looks have been created with this amazing palette. I have never used an eye shadow palette with such bright colors that actually stay true to color. What you see is truly what you get! The pigmentation in the eye shadows is also great.. I don’t even use a primer.
In conclusion, I can tell you that I’ve fallen in love with Ofra Cosmetics. These three products are just the ones that I was able to try from home. When they came to give the demonstration at work, I was able to try all their products and I will say…I’m a believer.
Check out Ofra Cosmetics… you won’t regret it.

Special effects or beauty ?? That is the question!

For so many years I’ve been dedicated to beauty makeup, and I’m great at it!

But for the past 3 years I’ve been playing around with special effect……. Oh how my heart is torn !
I’ve grown To love the special effects.

But they are those the say you can’t do both, some argue that you have to choose you can do both because you would be better at one than the other!

I say if you love something you can grow to learn in every aspect of it….. I love makeup and I love every single part of makeup, I learn to love it so much that I got the passion to teach it, and I became very good at it, I love natural makeup, fantasy makeup, beauty makeup, special effects makeup and all others.. That to stay focused just 1 area it’s like stooping the growth of my passion for art.

Well some people consider them hey beauty makeup artist, or a fashion makeup artist, or a special effects makeup artist etc etc etc… I consider I’m a specialist in all areas of makeup. If somebody is forcing you to choose, tell them that you can be great in all of them and that is the beauty of Art it has no rules. 

Besides how can I call myself a good teacher if I don’t know everything is the world makeup…..
I couldn’t … But I could because I consider myself a master in all areas of makeup. Join me in my journey in all of the areas of makeup the world. Follow my work here on facebookYouTube , twitter and  instagram @beautybyshaq, I hope you enjoy the journey.
