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.

Miss Mundo Latina Behind the scene makeup

I had the pleasure of being the Lead Makeup Artist for the Miss Mundo Latina Camp 2012
I was able to do this thanks to my job, A chosen group of students and my self were in charge of the makeup and hair.
This was such a great experience all the candidates were so sweet and a great pleasure to work with!
We were expecting cattiness, arguments, attitudes, and rudeness, but instead we were greated with smiling faces, the girls all got along great, they treated each other with love and respect, and were such great models never complained always happy with our work! 
The first day I spent it, coming up with the makeup look with the MML group and helping the students, then I was outside with all the Models re-touching and adding anything else that need it to be done!
We even got to cover up tattos
 I Got to spend time with the girls and they are all so sweet!

Music video: My Miami

Hello Beauty Addicts!!
A couple of weeks back, I worked on a music video. I wasn’t able to talk about it until the release…. Well the time is finally here!!
I was the Key Makeup Artist for the music Video My Miami. Thanks to my friend Rory from Makeup ByRory She called me and asked me if I could do this makeup video for a friends of her and I said yes!
Her friend was Executive Producer: Ana Trevino. after a couple of phone call and text messages, I met with Ana and her team, and instantly I fell in love with the video idea. Ana is incredibly artistic and has great Ideas and I loved her style!
The day of the shoot, we had to meet up really early, we met at 5am in south beach to shoot the beach scene, and have breakfast of course! LOL! Breakfast was provided by Anas mom and it was delicious!!

 We had the main singer , 3 backup dancers, and 3 male models to makeup, needles to say we had a busy day! With different scenes to shoot, and tons of retouches and 3 different locations the 16 hours of shooting went by really fast!
Now about the artist Kezia Nell .  I fell in love with her style and voice when I met her! She is fun, and sweet, and has a passion for what she does! I know she will definitely make it!!

Here is the Link to the video:
