WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM
The Lipstick Make Up Institute was created to represent the connection between Media and Make Up in a stylish, fashionable and unique way. Our students have an amazing advantage of receiving a foundation to build careers as creative and unique make up artists.
The Lipstick Make Up Institute provides and presents a unique and different way of teaching. Why different? The course plan itself is a summary of 25 years of experience a mixture of different techniques that have been tried, corrected and redefined. We not only want to show to our students the different and most effective application techniques but also want to educate them to be precise, quick and practical to gain and maximise their experience and confidence in the industry.
Students leave our make up school not only with the qualifications to work in the industry but with enough experience and confidence to work within any Media Production company or solely as freelancers. One major bonus, which will give students a great advantage, is be being part of an environment and atmosphere of a professional working photography studio. Once they step out of the classroom and into the media industry they will have the confidence to work in any situation, as these surroundings are familiar. Our students also have the unique opportunity to frequently assist a professional photographer in the studio environment on model portfolios, corporate shoots, family shoots etc and every scenario that studio environment offers.
We are affiliated and supported completely by Kryolan, recognised as one of the highest professional make up brands one could wish for. Kryolan originates from Germany and was stared by and amazing guy, Mr. Domink Langer.
Kryolan have been supplying the Film, Theatre and Television Industries for over Sixty-Six years, which makes them one of the world’s first professional make-up brands. They are still the number one choice for make-up artists today. Their range extends to over 16.000 high quality make-up products and accessories.
These products enable our students the support in preparing them to enter into the world of Media and Fashion. Our students receive product knowledge in all mediums: Stage, Theatre, TV, Beauty, Fashion and Catwalk make up and they will be armed and qualified to become freelancers in any of these fields.
The Lipstick Make Up Institute’s main aim is to train and guide our students to the highest level to be professional, practical, quick, flexible and precise in their job.
