I just have to share these images with you from Arab Fashion Week Final day. It was so amazing. The models, The Lipstick make Up Institute Teams were just on fire as were the Lipstick Hair Teams. Just a team effort. Its amazing the amount of people that come together and support each other and help one another. Have a look at the photographs. behind The scenes are always the best. Backstage is where all the action takes place. The Lipstick Make Up Institute is fast becoming in demand as is getting known because of our dedication. Hard work and commitment to our clients for being one of the best if not the best make Up Institute in Dubai. We work hard for this title though. Pure work but to be truthful it does not feel like work at all as its just what we love to do. This is our motto on the wall, " Love What you do and do what you love". Thats the slogan we all live by and as I say to everyone the day I stop loving it is the day that I will stop. Pack my bags and retreat to a far away island, open a bar, get a little boat to pull clients on water skis. Have a little tapas restaurant attached with a a Spanish/ Pakistani/ Irish twist!. I am half Pakistani and half Irish and tapas originates from Spain Thats where all the fusion come together. Thats my dream and believe me one day I will do it but right now I am loving my life just too much but one day not too far away. "Time to Chill" will be my new slogan to live my life by. Have a little look at our last day anyway as I am rabbiting on ha!
Well we survived the first year with flying colours. We have been involved in so many events. Fashion Shows. Courses. Photoshoots. The list is endless. We invited a few selected friends to join in our celebrations of winning the Eurasian World Championships, celebrate the MD's, Yasmin Hussain Birthday and also for completing The Week at Arab Fashion week. We thoroughly enjoyed our whole event. We put on a few small fashion shows and displayed some amazing designers clothes with beautiful models. The designer were:

Another amazing, crazy busy day at Meydan Hotel. We are the major Sponsors of Arab Fashion week for the hair, make up and nails. I am blown away by the camaraderie, support and respect everyone has for each other. These events are something special that everyone just loves to be involved in, including me. Sometimes it make you crazy as the pressure and timings are sometimes unrealistic but its fun and exciting! People respond better under pressure. What does not break us makes us stronger.

Every Sunday, The Lipstick make Up teams are at Nikki Beach Dubai, chilling with the customers and enjoying, "Amazing Sundays". This happens across the globe at all Nikki Beach clubs from St. Tropez to Miami. We paint the customers faces and arms, apply tattoos and party! We have the headdress, make up, photography and its all free. We teamed up with Nikki Beach to give the customers the best time on Sundays that they can have. Come and join us and have a party! Who need the Mahikis of Dubai when we have The Lipstick make up Institute, the best Make Up Institute in Dubai! Have a look at our pictures and next week it could be you so come and join us please, the more the merrier. Its like a little escape from Dubai. To me, it truly make me feel like I am in the Mediterranean. The whole set up is so cool and lots go amazing sides to it. Even the sea look so different than the sea at like say, Barasti which is near where I live why? I have no idea it just seems to be really blue!
We are always so proud that students travel across the globe to choose our make up institute over any other to to teach them the skills that they need to advance them into the world of Make Up. I am always flattered when I ask them, How did you find us"? and they say that they google, "Make Up Schools in Dubai" and they looked at what all the schools had to offer and they like the look of our website, our testimonials, the work that we do and they see what the students are achieving and we are far ahead of any other make up institute. It means that we have done our job well. The reason that we achieved this is because we opened the make up Institute because we are passionate about it and this is the most apparent attribute and this is clear for anyone to see. Its not just a business but its our life and we just love it. I am not just saying it but our students feel at home here and get really sad when their courses are over as we do. Once you leave the Institute we don't forget you though. We keep in touch with our students and try to involve them in our Fashion Shows and any event we can. We really do care about our students. They become a part of our small family here. The other great attribute that puts Our Make up institute better than any other in Dubai is that we have a sister company, YH Studios DXB and all our students get professional images for their portfolio, how many depends on what course they have chosen This is such a great advantage for the students to have such images in their portfolio as believe e when i tell you that I have interviewed over 60 make Up Artists and no one! has any professional images. I advertised for a "teacher" and one applicant sent me face cards, I couldn't understand this at all. I asked her that all the years she claims to be a make up artist and have taught for so may years yet she send me , Face Charts. Unreal. I know how important it is to have a portfolio and a diary of your achievements. I have been a photographer for 28 years so I really do know the value of a portfolio and thats why when we were comprising the courses it was imperative that we incorporated professional photographs for the students portfolios. Here are the results of one of our students who has just finished a 3 Day Bronze Course. Amazing pictures with great talent.
Well, it is always fun to learn at the Make up institute but especially when its a creative special effects day. Our student chose our make up school as she did here research from South Africa and decided that we were the best make up school in Dubai to teach her all that she wants to know and she was absolutely right. The daily task was to to make a relatively young person old and just take a look at the results. Using the best makeup in our opinion, Kryolan , you can actually do anything. Once you learn the techniques then the make up will allow yo to explore the possibilities of your talent and give you the freedom to push yourself to the limits. I am sure you agree that the results are great. All our photos are shot by our sister photography studio, YH Studios DXB. They have been here for 4 years and are the prefect partner for a make up school. In fact, I don't know how the school would be without it. Everyone make up school should have one. The results of any make up lesson need to be recorded and thats what YH Studios does. Our students have this great advantage and we are the only make up school in Dubai to have such a partner company. Have a little look at the videos too and see just what fun we have in the make up school on a daily basis. See, learning is fun! Please feel free to comment and ask any questions. Here are a couple of videos from behind the scenes so you can see how we get our models into character.
