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!

Body painting … Naked art!

Makeup is art!
 I love teaching makeup!
 One of my favorite subjects is body painting. Body painting day in my class is so much fun, after we spend the whole week practicing, by Friday we already have our final ideas planned and our fabulous and brave models picked out and a great selection of food items and drinks so we can stay hydrated and fed while we paint body paint.. it normally takes us 4 to 5 hours to finish one body, but is so much fun that we don’t even notice the time pass.
there are many different ways of body painting, there’s airbrushing and water activated paints and alcohol activated paints, and liquid body paints and, so on and, so forth. In my class we use the water activated Mehron body paint and liquid Mehron body paint and we also mix that paint with a mixing medium so that we may use it with our air brush machines.
I got to do a body paint that I’ve been wanting to do for a really long time… but I also have to teach my class and help my students whenever they need help, so I didn’t have as much time as I want it so I didn’t get to finish all the detail that I want it to but all in all I really love how it came out. I’ve seen this picture of a pin up zombie cartoon.. I can’t tell you where because I can’t find it again, so this is my interpretation of that cartoon. my pin up zombie cartoon girl!

here’s the work that my two students got to do…

 I love it! they are so creative! I love seeing all the things they come up with. every group of students that I’ve had always show me new interesting, fun things, and as I teach them they teach me too. 
what else can I say but my job is so rewarding!
Here is the work that I did in the class before, I had only an hour so I just did a corset on a model.
and here’s the work my students did
every single area I teach on, it’s always fun and exciting and there’s always so many different interpretations so there’s never a dull moment!
so do you body paint? What’s your favorite type of paint to use?
 If my students are reading… what was your favorite type of paint to use and please post your pictures on the comments, and also if you had more time which body paint would you have like to do?
Thank you again Beauty Addicts for reading and always commenting and staying in touch.
