The Life of a Makeup Artist

The Life of a Makeup Artist Have you ever spent hours late at night watching makeup tutorials online and thought…hmm I’d love to be her/him one day.I bet you have as I have in the past. I have imagined working with famous  celebrities and traveling around the world doing what I love, while getting paid for it. So I took the chance, flew to Dubai and the rest was history.
I thought the life of a Makeup Artist was easy.
Believe me, I had to crawl my way into the industry, as years ago, makeup artists from my country were not as in demand as they are now. I had to train every single day crying while I drew eyeliners. I have lived in places not suitable for human beings and worked with impossible personalities. But in spite of all that, I kept going. I honed my skills, trying to gain as much experience as I can, learned from different styles of makeup from different people, and always having that goal of stepping up in my career. Fast-forward 15 years later, I still haven’t reached all my goals. So far, I’ve crossed out a few things off my bucket list though - such as, worked for VIPs of Dubai, princesses, celebrities, worked in media, getting my work published in magazines, attending classy events, meeting amazing people in the industry and so much more. Now because of all the experiences I’ve had, I can teach a new generation of men and women what I’ve learned. And maybe you don’t have to go through what I’ve gone through by taking our Platinum Makeup Course this Ramadan.
The Lipstick Makeup Institute is offering a 40% discount 25,000 AED to 15,000 AED for a limited time. If you take this course, I’m sure you’ll get ahead in the game really fast. Just call: 0528349964

Professional Beauty GCC

Professional Beauty GCC (5th-6th February) Last week, The Lipstick Makeup Institute took part in the Professional Beauty GCC event at Meydan, Dubai on the 5th-6th of February. The Lipstick Makeup Institute showcased 3 different looks on stage. Two of the makeup artists were past students of  The Platinum Media Course, at The Lipstick Makeup Institute. They had the chance to showoff their amazing skills, and had a blast while doing that too!

       At first, the makeup artists were nervous to be going on stage and talking about their work, and the looks they were to be demonstrating to the audience. Their nerves however,  soon disappeared once they were speaking to Yasmin Hussain on stage, and explaining to her and everyone the meaning and process of their artistic looks.

    We had some variety of looks that day, from smoky eyes to colourful creative looks, and even pop art! Each different look had its own skill,talent and story behind it. We got to know the artists some more,  while they explained their stories and journeys, and how they have become Pro Makeup Artists.

  Backstage was so much fun as usual, with the whole Lipstick team doing the makeup for all the hair looks, that were going to be showcased on stage.  The hairstylists explained to the team the exact looks they wanted, that would highlight the hairstyles they were exhibiting. Then the Lipstick team went to work, and delivered a great job with the makeup. The models looked fantastic with the final looks while on stage.

Dubai Modest Fashion Week

We are all really please to be asked to participate in the Dubai modest  Fashion Week. Its an amazing event. The first time to be held in the UAE to be held here. It has ben showcased in London, Istanbul and New York, sop not such a small event. It was influcted  with influencers, bloggers and amazing designers. It is the first time that The Lipstick Make Up Institute has been involved in a fashion Show with predominantly hijabs. The models looked just so beautiful and elegant in the Beautiful designs all ver elegant for Dubais Modest Fashion Week. There were so many designers that came to Dubai just for this event from all over the world. As usual, The Lipstick Make Up Institute Teams just love Fashion Shows. We thrive on the adrenalin and the rush of the exciting challenges that the days bring. We love the pressure and th dramatic changes from designer to designer. This time though there were not too may changes as it the Title of the Show says, The Modern Fashion Show! so hence the makeup had also to be minimalistic and not so pronounced. Delicate and flawless makeup was the dominant feature of the shows. This was so not to take anything away from the designers and the clothes. I never knew that there so many ways to wear a hijab and look so cool. The clothes were very , " now" and so  in with fashion, we were all so impressed. The fashion world is complimenting each continent and blending from East to west and north to south and the results of this are shown on the runway. We just can't wait for the next Fashion Show. This is the season of events and the teams are all busy bees. Next week The Lipstick Make Up institute Teams are celebrating on a yacht party together as a great ending to the year. We can sail and watch the sunset together on The Palm Jumeirah. Cannot wait. Congratulations to Everyone!!!!

Platinum Makeup Course at The Lipstick Makeup Institute (Javaria)

Hi Guys!The Platinum Makeup Course. Now we will talk about the experience of one of our students here who took The Platinum Makeup Course at The Lipstick Make Up Institute  who graduated last December 2016. Javaria flew all over from Pakistan to enrol in our Institute. She started with zero knowledge in makeup. At first she doesn't know how to differentiate the difference between the shade of the foundation, what is the best suits the skin tone of one person. This is the most important step when applying make up. The word itself, "foundation" really says it all. Like when building a house, if you have a good foundation then you can build on it successfully. Another simile is like a relationship. Start with a good foundation then this can be built on a and an amazing relationship can grow. We started to show her the tools, different kinds of brushes. Then followed by the step by step on how to apply makeup starting from cleaning, toning and moisturising. Analysing the shape, skin tone of a person is not easy for a beginner but if you have a passion and interest to learn it will come easy to determine just like what Javaria did. She listens and observed very well to her teacher to achieve this kind of makeup for her models. Slowly day by day by doing makeup to her models she achieved different kinds of look from day time look to evening and glamorous look. And also the creative look which they enjoyed to do so much. Take a look at the sample work of the Make Up students. Look what Javaria achieved from her course. On The Platinum Course we cover every different aspect of make up. You can achieve your goals with us at Lipstick and Yh Studios. We are becoming the best make up institute in Dubai.  15732079_1398086210209762_5749525795272883159_o 15676194_1398086306876419_7914188533013822816_o 15825882_1398086250209758_783824274523728908_n 15727012_1398086920209691_7996802650182600066_n 15727286_1398086286876421_9120554862871749320_n Thank you for tuning with us the next topic we will share the experience of one of our Student who also took the Platinum Course with us.

Amazing Pool Shoot with Lara Tabet

What a great pool shoot with Lara Tabet Amazing Pool Shoot with a beach body to die for! Hi Guys I'm Chaliya the new head makeup artist here at The Lipstick Makeup Institute. Im British from the UK, I have lived in Dubai for 4 years. I have a huge passion for make up. I previously worked for Mac Cosmetics in Dubai & London Harrods, which was what influenced me to become a makeup educator. "Its a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together" I love being able to pass on my knowledge of makeup to the students & watch them develop into great makeup artists. I am teaching master classes with the students, where they get to learn all aspects of makeup from beauty to special effects. This is when they can really show their talents. Their imaginations can run wild. We have many  courses for beginners who have no experience in makeup. We  teach them everything they need to know. My  1st out of studio shoot was an amazing experience. In an amazing location in City Walk Dubai. Working with the sand & water between your toes, out in the sun what more could you want! Lara looking beautiful in her glamours bikinis. Amazing Views with the Burj Khalifa. Beautiful Sunset in the distance. Dubai is such a magical place for a photo shoot, with the beach views, amazing tall buildings Applying makeup touch ups when needed. So much fun can't wait for the next beach shoot!
