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.

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.
