This post is sponsored by Pop Beauty. These products were sent to me by Pop Beauty but all my opinions are my own.

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!

Broken Face Makeup

Welcome back! Today, I bring you my latest YouTube tutorial Broken Face Makeup.

As some of you may know, I teach makeup. I’ve been teaching for 8 years now and I love it! Teaching was a scary thought at first, but once I started it quickly became my passion.

The class has many different categories, but one of my favorites is face painting. When I create a new face paint, to me it’s like creating a new character.

Years ago I create a broken face makeup , I was remembering this the other day and I thought to my self: Self.. you need to recreate this asap. So I did.

This new Broken Face Makeup, I decided to look at various pictures for inspiration. When I started I looked at different makeup artist, my old one and pictures of broken dolls and windows.

Enjoy this tutorial, I enjoyed making it. I wasn’t planning on making it a tutorial, that is why is such low quality. Usually I film with my Canon T3I, but I was just doing this for fun so I recorded it with my Iphone7. When I was done, I liked the finished product and thus I had to share it!

Just for you Beauty Addicts, here is a list of the items used to create this look.

Items:

Fabb paint in black by Sillyfarm is what I used to create the lines and their white to create the highlight.

For eye shadows I used the Wong Cosmetics 35D palette I also used it to create shadows on the the cracks, and Ofra Cosmetics eye shadows for the teal .
Eyebrow gel and my  Invincible foundation are from Nyx Cosmetics.

The blue eyeliner and powder palette which I use for contouring as well, are from OP Makeup Studio.

For the blackest  eyeliner I always use Tarte Cosmetics tartiest eyeliner.
You have to add a little glitter eyeliner, I chose the LA Splash one.
To get color in my cheeks I used the Makeup Geek blush in bliss

How to Get Bronze Smokey Eyes (Video!)

Bronze Smokey Eyes

Hi guys welcome back to Beauty By Shaq!

Today I’m bringing you this tutorial on how to get this beautiful Bronze Smokey Eyes. I love playing with color, but I also love doing soft looks for everyday wear.Learn how to get bronze smokey eye tutorial

I love a lot of cosmetic companies but I also have my favorites one of them being the new Wong Cosmetics. Wong Cosmetics is a family owned business with a great story behind it! All the proceeds go to fund their daughters dream of becoming a star (and we all know that doesn’t come cheap!). They are hands on, in the whole experience. They choose and order the products, they placed them online and they ship them themselves and give you a note with every package so you can feel special. I love that.

To get this Bronze Smokey Eyes,  for the eye shadow I used the Wong cosmetics 35K pallet. One of my favorites! All the Neutral shades and shimmer shades work great together.

For my eyebrows I used the NYX eyebrow gel in the color chocolate. I like to use strokes in the front and then define the back of the eyebrow to get the effect of a lighter brow in the front and a darker brow towards the back for a more natural look.

For the face I decided to showcase my new product. Shaq’s Silisponge (the clear one, we also have a pink pointy one) it’s great to use with foundation and concealer’s it helps to apply them flawlessly. The skin will be looking fresh, well covered and beautiful.

To complement this Bronze Smokey Eyes look,  I used LA Girls concealer and Estée Lauder double wear foundation, and to set it all I used my Airspun translucent powder.

I’m stuck on an eyeliner and I must tell you all about it. I am been using the Tarte Cosmetics tartiest clay eyeliner. it goes on smooth, it last a long time, is super dark, and I love it.

Also one of my faves.. OP Makeup Studio’s ninja eyeliner.

To make everything sparkle and the Bronze Smokey Eyes pop, I decided to use my new Wong Cosmetics highlight palette. To contour I used the OP Makeup Studios powder palette. This is must have in any makeup kit. For blush and to give shape to the face I used the Makeup Geek blush in Bliss.

For the lips I used a combo. I used lip liner and lip gloss from OP Makeup Studio. For the color I used OFRA Cosmetics and Kathleen Lights Miami Fever.

Last but definitely not least the beautiful lashes in runways from Wong Cosmetics.
There you have it beauty addicts! Those are all the products and all the techniques that I use to create this Bronze Smokey Eyes look. For a step-by-step on how to do it you can go and watch my video linked below:

As always thank you so much for your support beauty addicts!!  I’ll see you in the next blog!

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!
