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:

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.

Behind the scene : Infomercial

Hello Beauty Addicts!
As some of you may know I work for a beauty school!
They decided to make a new infomercial and invited my team to work on the models and students!
How exciting!! Right? Right!!

 

Oh Yeah! Isn’t my hair super cool!! 

 We get there and are ready to work, and then they tell us……. You guys are the Models and students and we want your testimonials and we are going to shoot different scenes! 

WHAT?!?!?
No problem! We are professionals!

We did hair and makeup on each other and then also on models that they hired for us to work on for different scenes they were shooting!

Amazing before and after, thank God For L’Oreal

OK so about 4 weeks ago L’Oreal asked me to try some new products and in those was Youth Code, the day, night, eye and serum… 
Well I’m a skin care hog and I had to use it all, even tho I already have my regular regiment  I decided to stop it (been using it for 3 years) and I started using L’Oreal Youth Code and I was very happy with texture and feel of the product, not heavy not greasy, but a nice moisture feeling, I was happy.

                                         Before                                                                   After
I hardly take pictures of me without make up but on this day I wanted to do a before and after and when I saw the picture I was shocked to see how nice my skin looked! Now the picture on top you can see that Before my skin was dull and I had sooo many spots and uneven skin tone on the after picture my skin is bright and full of life and with less spots. I’m soo happy with the results! 
Then I thought to my self what about my lines??? well I looked at pictures and looked for my smile lines and again I was pleasantly surprised.
                                        Before                                                                     After
As you can see on my before my lines are deeper and I have many more than on my after.
Over all I’m extremely surprise that it worked so fast, and to be honest I’m not using it like I should, I use it every other night or day when I remember so I believe this is a great product!
I have to say that I was using a high end product before and Youth Code has showed me better results and the price cannot be beat!
For the Day/ Night Cream is 24.99 for 1.6oz
The Day Lotion is  24.99 for 1.7oz
The Serum is 24.99 1.0oz
The Eye cream is 24.00 for 0.5oz
The  Prices are great and the results are amazing as you can see! I give this product an A+++ .
Thank you for visiting Beauty addicts!!
