THE MAKE UP Brand: illamasqua Being backstage at a fashion show is so much more than just being a MakeUp artist. You are part of a family to get the show on the road. The trick is to all stick together, work with confidence, keep alert and of course ALWAYS smile and never loose focus. Its important to be on the ball as fashion shows can be a crazy rush backstage. When it comes to fashion shows, they key thing to remember is timing is everything. As beautiful and stunning fashion shows are from the front row, its not all glitz and glamour backstage. Backstage is where the months of hard work comes to life in a matter of hours. However, the rush is additive and the achievement you feel once the show has finished lasts for days.

This is the question everyone into fashion and beauty is asking. Its not as easy as you think. The lipstick makeup institute expert gave a step by step beauty tutorial to answer all about this new makeup trend . Here is our tutorial steps and makeup tips to our beautiful ladies in dubai and the lipstick makeup institute lovers . Here are the STEPS below in print. 1 - cleansing , toning and moisturising which is the most important step . 2 - Its so important to find the perfect foundation for your skin tone. You can even blend another foundation lighter or darker to get an effortlessy natural glow. Our skin colour changes constantly. A bit of sun and we are a shade darker. We must compensate for this. 3 - You can blend the foundation well with a wet sponge or a brush. You must blend it in well though so its almost invisible. This is the sign of good foundation. 4 - You should contour under the cheekbone , jawline , chin, temples and nose. This will lightly to give defention to your features . 5 - apply correctors to even out the dark circles , then highlight the centre of chin , under eyes and top of cheekbones with a cream highlighter . 6 - in order to set the base use loose or translucent powder and blend it with a brush . this will ensure a matte finish . 7 - run a brush through your eyebrows and highlight with a shade that is at least three or four lighter than your eyeshadow . this is to give a gentle defention . 8 - apply an eyeshadow over your eyes . start with a lighter base and move on to a darker shade . 9 - take an angular brush dab it on a darker shade that complements the eyeshadow and apply it on top of your eyes , smudge it later with the brush ( you could avoid eyeliner completly ) . 10 - for mascaras you can choose to apply a combination one for length the other for volume . 11 - to give your lower eyeline just the right amount of definition apply a beige liner and for a night time look you could substitute with a white liner . 12 - for blush go for soft colours like peaches or oranges and for a night look you could use a bronzer or dark pinks depending on the lipstick you are wearing . 13 - apply a lipliner for lipstick , go for glossy ,understated colours in this case its rosy , brown avoid mattes . Its so easy once you know how and follow instructions. Long gone now are the days when we paste the make up and have rosy cheeks and seriously contoured cheekbones. Less is more as they say. Please have a look at the pictures below and see our gorgeous model, Clementine Harriett transformed. She is beautiful anyway but glows with our expert makeup and Kryolan make up.
QUEEN OF SPADES TOOK ME ON A VOYAGE DU CARNAVALThursday 6th October 2016 the beautiful Lamya Abedin opened Arab fashion week with her Carnival Themed Fashion Show. Simply elegance. She not only opened the show but bust onto the runway with a creative and amazing collection of high fashion !! The Bohemian dressed , very tall models, floated down the runway to very cool and contemporary carnival music. To compliment the show the smell of popcorn filled the room as there were popcorn stations and candy floss stations to worked so well for the collection and were all there for the customers and guests to take advantage of. it made us all get into the spirit of, "Carnival". Fun and sophisticated comes to mind. Her designs and use of materials pushed the boundaries of design. They were such mixture that blended together so well.

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!

Hi there! Today we will talk about how to create and define ombre lipstick! Ombre means having two different colours that are monochromatic. Ombre isn’t just for your hair! The sexy, ombré lip look is one you’re going to want to wear always, and shout to the world about it. Be creative and bold with your makeup and try out this ombre lip look. Ombre lips can look awesome, but if not done correctly they can make you look very tacky! The secret to doing ombre lips is to first try it out with your regular lip colors. Play around with different hues that merge well together and once you are satisfied with the results only then step out into the open. Step by Step Ombre Lips: Apply concealer over your lips to hide the natural colour. Use the dark lip liner to create a line around the edge of your lips as you would normally. Add more of this dark colour lip liner to the corner of your lips bringing this dark colour in towards the middle, but do not colour all of your lips with this shade. You can also extend this line and thicken it at the top and bottom of your lip if you wish. Apply your pale colour to the middle of your lips that do not have the darker lip liner on them. Press your lips together once or twice but do not smear the colours together by rubbing your lips side to side or back and forth. Simply press your lips together and pull apart again in one smooth motion. At this stage you can use your lip brush or cotton bud to blend the edges of your colours together to create a fading effect. Thank you guys in tuning in. Tomorrow we will talk about do's and don't about day time makeup!
Glossy VS Matte Yesterday we were talking about the luscious, glossy lips. Todays topic is The Velvety Matte Lips. The matte lips can be tricky. Why? Because if your lips are dry and cracked the matte lipstick will look really bad and cheap. The same rules are on when you are prepping the lips for the matte lipstick.
- use a scrub to remove the dead skin
- lip balm or vaseline is a must
- remove the lip balm and make sure your lips are product free
- apply a bit of concealer to make sure your lipstick will last all night long
- apply lipliner! Its essential, because it defines the lips, you can be more precise and making your lipstick long lasting.
- fill up the lips with your matte lipstick. Use a lip brush in this case you will be more precise with lines and the lipstick will look rich and full. Also the lipstick will last more longer. Do long and clean strokes with your lip brush. The texture of the matte lipsticks are more dry then the creamy ones its obvious because of the matte finish. We can suggest you the new Kryolan Matte Lipsticks. They are giving you the perfect matte velvety finish but at the same time the texture is not so dry.
Lipstick is an essential part of almost every woman’s daily makeup routine. However, many women shy away from the red tones they find in the cosmetic aisle. Fortunately, you can pull off those brave shades with a little lipstick know-how. Here are ten dos and don’ts of wearing red lipstick: 1. WEAR DARKER FOUNDATION. If you’re going to go bold with your lip color, you’ve got to have a complementary backdrop for your face. For those with lighter skin tones, it’s a good idea to choose foundations that will provide darker, olive bases. Red lips can be too much of a contrast against pale skin. The darker your lips are, the darker your foundation should be. 2.DON’T BE AFRAID TO BLEND COLOURS. Do you like the look of red lipstick, but think it might be too loud for you? There’s an easy solution: customize your shade. Simply take a lighter hue like coral or mauve and blend it with that rose or burgundy you’ve been eyeing. The result will be a more muted tone that nearly anyone will be comfortable wearing. 3. USE IT FOR THE RIGHT OCCASION. While everyone loves red, luscious lips, the look isn’t appropriate for every social situation. Some of the deeper shades can be a little jarring to people you run into at the gym or the kids’ soccer game. Likewise, you want everyone to be listening to your business proposal at that morning office meeting, not staring at your lips. Only paint your kisser red when you know you’re dealing with a fun, playful atmosphere, such as a night out with the girls. Then, you’ll be one step ahead in painting the town red! 4. DON’T OVER DO IT. If you want to avoid all the lipstick smudges and stains, you can start by only applying a light coating to your lips. This is especially important for red lipstick since it’s easier to spot on teeth and collars. Rolling once or twice around your lips should be sufficient to achieve the desired effect. For even more control of your coverage, spread the lipstick using a lip brush. Just remember that a little dab will do you. Thank you! for your time on reading the tips and tricks for today! Tomorrow we will talk about the lipgloss when and where to wear it!
