We Made History with School Photography

We made history with School Photography Aflec International School, Dubai. 
 Our sister company YH Studios. Which is in our same studio space next door, started  the year with a BANG and making history. It started out as a concept and now, we’re finally doing it. Lots of planning, time and a lot of caffeine were consumed to put this event into fruition.

We’ve taken on a new designed  project where  both YH Studios and The Lipstick Makeup Institute – Revolutionised the way we do school photography.

For the first time in photography history, the so called “Normal” way School photography has been done in so  many different ways but never in The YH Studiosand The Lipstick Makeup Institute way.

We took it to another level. Our level!! Stylish, contemporary and every so sophisticated and exciting for the kids and the staff. 

We made an ordinary shoot into a mini fashion shoot for each child. This has never ever been done before. As a fact, we are the first! 

Here are some pictures of our team.

Getting Ready for Action!

This is what we thrive on at YH studios. We aim to be different. It was well received. A few parents a little sceptical as its a new concept. But in the whole a very well received idea. 

 

I just thought that most school pictures all the kids hair is so messy. they had been running around all day at playtime. Playing football or doing PE. 

 

So, The Lipstick makeup Institute Team prepared all the children with an exception of a few ready for their school photos. Ready for The YH Studios DXB Team to take their pictures. 

 

I also came up with the idea that each child could do a shot called ” The Personality” shot. This is where they brought something that meant something to them For example, a hat , a toy or jacket etc. 

This worked out so well as the kids loved it and we made it fun for them. 

 

Hope the parents loved their unusual pictures and thank you so much for having us and thank to Aflec school.

European Bridal look and an Arabic Makeup look. We can assure you that you can learn how to do it. 

One of our Bridal Makeup Course was done last month with a student coming all the way from Pakistan to study with us. She wanted to brush up on her skills as a makeup artist. At first, she thought that her makeup technique was already good and as it turned out, there were still some things wrong about them.

I pointed out to the student her mistakes and she got it in a day’s worth of practice. Now she’s able to blend properly her eyeshadows and her foundation specially contours and blush.

The next other 2 days, she was able to create her own looks for smokey and cut crease. 

I’ve also pointed out to her a few things about makeup that it has to be impeccable, clean and fresh looking. So there are certain colours to be used in bridal makeup otherwise it will look too dark and gloomy. Foundation shade is also important as you have to make sure that it’s the correct shade whether it is for photography, videography or in person. 

Makeup for brides is tricky because you have to make sure everything is perfect. Skin has to look like skin even with tons of makeup on. 

Indian/Pakistani style bridal makeup is usually a bit heavier than European makeup. That’s because the brides are far away from the guests (on a stage).

Successful Self Makeup Application Course

The last couple of days were really fun and successful. A student enrolled for the self makeup application course for 2 days and we had an amazing time with her. 

At first, she didn’t know much about makeup and brought her own makeup. From there, we assessed her things and checked if they were the right products for her to become successful. Thankfully, she had a few brushes that were fine, and powder, bronzers, blush and lipsticks that were right for her complexion. Apart from that, the only items that were incorrect were her foundation and eyeshadows.

At first, I taught her a few theoretical aspects of makeup before we headed onto creating makeup looks. 

On the first day, we did practice work for Day Makeup. I taught her how to put her makeup on, which brushes to use, how to shape her eyebrows and lips.

On the second and last day of the Self Application Makeup Course, we did a review of the Day Makeup Look and Transitioned it to Evening Makeup and Party Makeup. She was able to do her own makeup with some guidance.

Learning how to put your own makeup is very important especially because appearance in the workplace is essential. When looking for a job, the first thing an employer looks at is someones photograph. In a job interview, a person’s appearance is something someone checks out. 

When working in the service business, it’s important to have your makeup done impeccably so that your clients will feel at ease when you talk to them. 

Here, at the Lipstick Makeup Institute, we’ll help you land your dream job by helping you in guiding you with your makeup — be it for your workplace, or for a date night. We’re here for you.

Certified Makeup Artist - Students' Work
Certified Makeup Artist – Students’ Work

Most of our students know nothing of makeup. Which is perfect because when you know a little bit of something, it’s harder to break a bad habit that to make a new one. 

Most of our former students are working in the industry now either in retail, salons, media, trainers, and salon owners. 

Here are some of our students’ reviews:

“I did the platinum makeup course at The Lipstick MakeUp Institute, during my gap year. It was an awesome experience, I gained not only knowledge but a decent beginner portfolio to start off my makeup journey! Definitely recommend for aspiring makeup artists in Dubai!” – Keleigh Abram

“Just finished a Gold Course at The Lipstick Makeup Institute and it was so informative and interesting I did not want to leave. I visited may schools before I decide and this by far was the best at everything. Also you get to go into the studio with your models and see how being a makeup artist really is. Its the best training i have ever had. Now I know why they win so many awards. Its true they do deserve it. I know why the makeup team do all the fashion shows. You are the best and thank you for everything. I will be back and I will tell everyone about you. Thanks again” – Willamina Smith

“Its awesome makeup institute and I love it and YH Studio is superb” – Kinza Islam

Official Makeup Team at the AFW S7

Official Makeup Team of the Arab Fashion Week Season 7

It’s time for another season of Design and Art in the Middle East and we are pleased to announce that we were the Official Makeup Team of the Arab Fashion Week Season 7 in Dubai. The show was held in 2 locations and they were The Dubai Design District and City Walk in Jumeirah.

http://arabfashionweek.org/sponsors/

The weeks before we announced this and asked our students if they can come with us. So, we had a few meetings and workshops prior to the fashion shows.

The first 2 days were held at the Dubai Design District. The first show was with AMATO, which everyone was so excited about. The look that he wanted in the show was a bold smokey eye with a graphic eyeliner around it. Then, the team had to do 2 other looks for the same models with a limited time.  In total, we had 5 fashion shows that day (AMATO, Old Times, Bav Taylor, Yara Bin Shakar, ThisNorThat)

The second day, we had the same amount of designers – BLSSD, Pearla Collection, Huang Jia Production, Yi Dai Mei, and Ilse Jara. The highlight of the night was the collection by Ilse Jara. And our task was to put gold leaves on the models’ foreheads and necks and it was breathtaking.

The 3rd to 5th days were held at City Walk in Jumeirah. It was then when we did 7 Designers on the 3rd day. It was a hectic day but really rewarding.

The 4th day, we had a very busy day and the highlight of the day was when suddenly the lights went off in the Green room at around 5pm – 2 hours before the show. Our team started doing makeup on the models in the dark with only mobile phones giving them light on the models. After an hour, the lights came back on and our team definitely had a once in a lifetime experience.

The 5th day, and supposedly the last day, there was the storm. As we finished all the prep work for the models, the organisers decided not to push through with the fashion show because of the rain. The show was being held outdoors, as a result the show had to be pushed over to the next day.

Last Day of Classes

Last day is always the hardest yet fulfilling day of the courses. The students were tasked to do an Instagram Glamour inspired Makeup with a twist.  As their last photoshoot, they did their best to create their final look as impeccable as possible.

Choosing an inspiration online for their last look was a daunting task but they were able to pull it off. Checking popular ‘makeup gurus’ online made them feel confident about doing their task.

Final Makeup by one of the students

How to mix and choose colours and create shapes are the first thing that our students learn in The International Platinum Media Makeup Course. In this final piece, they’re applying everything they’ve learned from choosing a foundation colour, checking the skin type, and choosing colours that would suit their model’s eye colour. They also had to apply contouring and highlighting according to their model’s facial shape. They also learned how to draw their model’s eyebrows, eyeliner and lips, doing an ombre lip, and lots of other things that they’ve learned.

Things that they’ve been struggling with in the first weeks they were able to achieve on their final week of photoshoots. As earlier during the week they did other shoots like the No Makeup Makeup Look and Makeup for Mature Ladies. They also did Evening looks, Glamour, and Arabic makeup. Special FX, Creative Makeup, High Fashion, and Creative Instagram Glamour Makeup were last. All of which they had to conceptualise by themselves prior to the shoots.

The students gave it their all during the final leg of their course making sure they were able to finish their looks on time. The students also stayed with the photographer to check how their models look so they can do any touch ups if needed.

That was really a fun week!

Self Makeup Course at TLMI

Self Makeup Course was held last week. We had a student who came in for it. She barely had any idea about how to put her own makeup and she only had a handful of products in her kit.

On the first day of the Self Makeup Course, we did a day makeup look with minimum amount of products and brushes (1 eyeshadow brush). Her main issue was her hyper pigmentation so I taught her how to colour correct. Orange correctors often look intimidating because of its strong colours but when used properly, it can give beautiful results. Next issue that she had were her eyes. throughout the 3 days, I taught her 3 different eyeshadow looks that suit her eye shape. I also gave her a few exercises that she can do while she wasn’t doing anything at home.

On the second day, we did an evening makeup look. This time, we focused on creating smokey eyes. First, she watched how I did my own and then followed what I was doing. This time, she brought her own products and brushes (2 for the eyes and 3 for the face) with her. When she started doing the look, we realised that the colour of her foundation is way off. it was so light on her and the tone wasn’t even correct. So, it was good that she brought them with her so we could choose a different shade for her later on.

The third and last day, she brought the makeup that I recommended for her to buy and it did a lot of difference. she got her own corrector, her colour of foundation, highlighters, a couple of new brushes. We then carried on to doing party makeup. We combined all the techniques she learned the past 2 days and did a makeup and added an eyeliner, eyelashes, and cream contouring.

After everything, we took a photograph at YH Studios so she can have a remembrance of the makeup she did on herself.

We hope you can come and join us for the next batch!
