The Lipstick Makeup Institute Graduates worked at the Emirates Palace for a day.
20th of July, 2018 marks a very special day in the Lipstick Makeup Institute's history. Together with our partners from Ted Morgan, our former students took in the task of creating the looks for Chinese dancers and musicians who were invited to perform for UAE's Royal family and China's President Xi Jinping at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
Artists from all around the world gathered in Abu Dhabi for this special event prepared performances that highlighted the relationship of the UAE with China with fusions of the Far and Middle East in song and dance.
Our graduates were challenged to do makeup on about 20 people in a span of 2 hours with the guidance of one of the teachers and organisers.
They were tasked to do traditional Chinese makeup with red and orange eyeshadow and a scarlet red lip.
They also did makeup on the European and Emirati Musicians with a classic light smokey eye and nude or red lips.
As for the kids, they had very simple makeup that suit their age and performance - clean foundation, blush, lip gloss.
As the students hustle backstage, Chinese Reporters come in and out of the makeup room to interview the performers.
It was a very busy and stressful day but in the end, it was all worth it.
Lipstick Makeup Institute Students First Fashion show
This took place @ V11 last week.
SORAYA B. COUTURE AND VAROIN MARWAH AW 2018 FASHION SHOW
Last Friday, June 22 2018, we were able to collaborate with a couple of wonderful designers, SORAYA B. COUTURE and VAROIN MARWAH at VII DUBAI in Conrad Hotel. In cooperation with Fashion TV, our students from the Lipstick Makeup Institute created the looks for the models before they marched their way into the runway. The beautiful models came out with a mixture of blinding gold highlights and fuschia pink cheeks Avant Garde looks.
With the guidance of one of our teachers and the coordinator, the students were challenged to finish their makeup look within 10-15 mins per model in their first ever fashion show.
The YH Studios crew also took photos and videos for the event.
Models lining up to get their looks done.
It was a jam-packed show. The models adorning the designs by Soraya and Varoin gleamed on the cat-walk.
They owned it as they felt so confident in their attire. Shining bright with Soraya's gowns and make up that gave them confidence to hold their heads up high.
The students are in their last week of training. 6 weeks of intensive training. They started with not much knowledge and now they are leaving with so much that they are bursting at the seams.
They are ready to tackle the outside world and start using all that they have learnt along the way.
They covered everything from the no makeup look to special effects. One end of the spectrum to the next!
I am so so proud of them that I could cry! It always makes me so happy. I love my students!!
