Zombie Makeup

Everyone love zombie makeup now…. right?? I do!
There’s so many different way to make a zombie, and this is one more.. but I’ll give you insight in products and how to use them. At the end, I’d love to get your feedback!
To begin, I like to prep my model with contact lens, they always give any zombie look the perfect touch!

Next is all the “scars, bite marks, deteriorating” To create the angry eyebrows I used a foam latex prosthetic that I bought at The Silly Farm . I used Prosaid which is used to glue prosthetic to skin, then I went on to create the scars and deteriorating skin with 3rd degree… a 2 part silicone product that you mold and have ten minutes to play with.  On the neck, that’s where she was bitten to become a “zombie” I used oatmeal and latex, I mixed them together to create this look! On the legs I applied latex waited for it to dry and started making holes.

Then I took the most pale color from dinair and airbrushed her whole body…. to give it that dead look you know! LOL!

Next I took my Mehron Bruise wheel and added dead bruised coloring around every wound and cut! I also used black cream to give the illusion of depth.

Next I used my new favorite Mehron tooth fx and used the red and black to give a decaying FX to the teeth!

Isn’t she lovely?!?!?!?!

I like doing my blood splatter outside… and with good reasons.. “my boss hate when the whole school looks like a massacre happened lol” I use Mehron Stage Blood to drip in the areas that i wanted, then watered it down and used it for splatter everywhere else!
and Viola!

Half Human Half Reptile Makeup (tutorial at the end)

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)
Liquid Latex: I used Spirits Halloweens own latex.. but againg you can find it anywhere now.
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.
This look was easy to create and fun and everyone has loved it! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did! If you do please respond with a picture or tag me on instagram @beautybyshaq .

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!!!
