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! Lara Tabet is such an inspiring woman she's known as a Brand Ambassador, Middle East Luxury Business Developer, Official Spokeswoman for Arab Fashion Council and TV Presenter You can follow her on Instagram @laratabetgallery
Welcome to Day 1 Backstage at Arab Fashion Week with The Lipstick Make Up Institute Team Day1 is where the magic starts. Everyone is full of beans are ready to go. 5 Designers 5 Look changes Look 1 Designer: Rad Hourani The look that Rad wanted for his collection NEVER goes out of fashion. We can honestly say everyone on the planet wants beautiful, clear glowing skin. The No MakeUp Look is so beautiful and elegant, we had a great time just making the models look dewy with a healthy glow, and it also makes a great base for the next look. Simply light coat of illamasqua foundation and vaseline to finish off the look. This finished the look completely to give it the fresh, high fashion edge! Look 2 Designer: Jenanne Filat All the single ladies to the front row please for the male runway show. MakeUp is not just for women. Gold Lips and eyeliner. We contoured the cheeks with a slight bronze and gold highlighter. This look had a kind of Cleopatra feel. Look 3 Designer: Abdo Aoudai This look was very simple and but chic, a classic look for the stunning evening dresses. Dewy base with very little on the eyes, one coat of mascara, bottom lash line a soft brown shadow and peachy lips. Soft highlighter on the cheeks with a touch of vaseline to finish the look off. Finished off with straight and neat hair made this look effortless and romantic. Look 4 Designer: Marchesa Lucky for us MakeUp Artist, this look was very similar to Look 3. Pale pink lips and eyes, very light base, this was a big trend on Day1. We used vaseline to give a sheen on the eyelids and lips to finish the look off. Pale pinks and nude tones are a big trend this season. Look 5 Designer: Mrhua Mrshua Its time to get funky. This look was very and bold using pastel colours on the models brows, eyes and lips. The creative side of the MakeUp artist get to shine through this look. We had a lot of fun creating this look so please enjoy the snaps below. We hope you enjoyed Day 1 art Arab Fashion Week with us just as exciting as we did. Day 2 to follow.
The time had come again. Arab Fashion Week hit Dubai with full force. Once again we were so pleased to be involved. lets take you backstage with The Lipstick MakeUp Institute team. 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. The Lipstick MakeUp Institute team Lights Camera Action Lets get this show on the road. This amazing experience gave our fantastic Lipstick Make Up Institute team to express their artistry in more ways than one. Each day kept us all on our toes, we all loved it and left us craving for more. We got to work with fashion designers from around the world which we can all defiantly say this is a "pinch-me" moment. You might be there to do MakeUp but do not be surprised if you get pulled by someone to help dress a model, tidy a models hair or even to maybe run and get some water and food for everyone. Working in a fashion show keeps you up to date with the latest beauty trends and whats the hottest new looks. You could be the most experience MakeUp artist but you will always learn new tricks backstage that you can bring home, this will make you very popular with your girlfriends. Arab Fashion Week was held between 5 days. We will take you through each day with all the looks changes and show you some fantastic pictures we managed to get in whist our team worked their magic.
Lets celebrate all the lovely Mums! The Lipstick Makeup Institute was a part of the Mothers Day makeup filming in Osh Kosh baby store. Your setup reflects you. Make sure that your makeup products and brushes are always clean and well organised. We took our students to experience the working on a location and in front of camera feeling of the Mothers Day makeup filming . Our students were responsible for a nice flawless and fresh makeup on these lovely ladies. The task was easy. The mothers got few questions to answer while our students are pampering them and making sure they look lovely and perfectly made up. In this case the perfectly made up means not over the top, nothing glamorous but just a touch of makeup what will make the face fresh, the skin flawless. The less is always more. This is the most important to memorise! Always work with the face and the features. Don't try to apply the same makeup style on every single face. We are all unique, we all have a different personality also different needs when it comes to makeup. What will suit to me won't suit you and to some other person. Our students are trained in that way to recognise the needs of different faces and features. Makeup is used to enhance the beauty and correct the small imperfections not to make you look like a different person. Todays makeup look was a Mothers Day makeup. Why is it different than the other makeup looks? Its very light as a base. On the eyes we were using beige, browns with a touch of highlight. Mascara of course is a must. On the cheeks we added a touch of peach-orange colour to give a refreshing effect for the face as some of our ladies didn't sleep much. On the lips a transparent lipgloss. Our students in action. Beautifying our lovely models. It was fun. We heard loads of stories about the funniest stories about their kids, the most important words they love to hear from their kids, and the everyday with 2 or 3 kids in the house. All these lovely ladies deserve loads of attention, love and pampering... not only when its Mothers Day... but every day!!
Another interesting day using Cool UV Makeup and at The Lipstick makeup Institute. We gave our students an opportunity to use their skills that they have learnt. I have them to the task apply simple techniques. We have a party to attend for Career soon and they want this kind of tribal make up. so the students can have experience at this kind of body spray work I set them thee task. I bought the stencils from the art shop and the paints from, "kryolan". Some are UV and some not. The UV just looks so vibrant though. We started with the green Cool UV makeup base and to get a clear smooth body spray cover is also an art. Slowly and evenly is always the best. Its better to do a few layers then one really full one as the paint will run. You also get different textures and tones if you apply in the correct way. If you want this of course. It does create more depth rather than one block colour. After this is applied then we can start with the stencils. As I told the students its best to wet the Aqua colours and dab rather than brush. This way you will get and even effect without brush strokes. The trick is all to work fast! efficient, confident will work best with this kind of UV Makeup. Also, not to make it look like stencils. To do the work on the arm you have to repeat the stencil 3 times so join the line up! Use free hand. Give some depth to it also by adding some gold or brown to create a 3D effect. Here are a few shots from behind the scenes and a couple from the final images in the studio. Please enjoy them, we enjoyed really creating the look. The Final "Images".

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. To close her show her beautiful little daughter also cam outer confidently and elegantly onto the runway holding one of the models hands so sweetly. just have a look at the photos and you melt at the sweetness, delicate little girl in her gown made by her mothers hands. We were so pleased to have handled all the hair and make up for Arab Fashion Week and held in such a prestigious location. It has put The Lipstick Make Up Institute on an International Platform making The Institute one step higher to becoming The Best Make Up Institute in Dubai. The experience was amazing. I could and will write a blog on all the designers as they were all so amazing, different and very cool and easy to work with. In fact, everyone was cool from the organisers to the models. It was just a spectacular 5 days and the adrenalin never stopped rushing! The whole of The Lipstick make Up Institute Teams loved it!! tune in Next well for Designer number 2 when we will share some information and photographs.
The Lipstick Makeup Institute was at Oracle today and was doing a live demonstration about the importance of makeup. Before we went there to see all the lovely ladies we had to think of a few words to catch their attention. We had to let everyone know that we are The Best Make Up Institute in Dubai ha! This is what we thought of:
Why are we using makeup ? How to apply your makeup in 10 minutes? What are the most useful tricks for a quick and good makeup? All these questions were answered on our live demonstration. We started with a light daytime look discussing about choosing the right colour of foundation, application techniques, contours and highlights and setting the foundation. After this step we were giving a brief description about filling up and defining the eyebrows. Eye makeup - easy steps for a daytime application using all neutral colours Mascara application giving a final touch for the eyes How to apply the blusher and where to place it exactly, which colours are for the daytime look. Lipliner and lipstick application with a touch of a gloss was our finishing step on our lovely model. Now we gave a situation to our Ladies of usual everyday situation of no having time for makeup touchup for an evening time. We added a bit of drama on the eyes, cheeks and lips. Just in few steps you can easily transform your makeup from a daytime to a glamorous evening look. Try to concentrate on the eyebrows, eyes, cheeks and lips. Add more colour and more darker colour on the eyes, make the blusher stronger and add a darker lipstick on the lips its that easy to achieve an evening look. Don't forget to follow our blog and to contact us for makeup courses and makeup consultations. Tun in for our next addition.So we should call it the "Feel Good Factor”A woman’s mood can change in an instant if hey look good, they will fell good. If they feel good they will smile and radiate energy thats contagious and positive and can only be a great thing!Make up is a very important contributory factor to helping this.I will give young scenario.If a lady feels a little tired and has no make up on and she catches herself in the mirror, she will shy away an feel even worse than she looks and hence will have a lower tone on the phone and not project any positive vibes to clients or even friends.On the other side, if she has make up on and she catches herself in the mirror and she looks good! she will feel good and radiate that energy to potential clients giving positive vibes throughout the office and can only be good for self esteem and for business.So the solution is, to make the most out of yourself every day to feel good and this is also goof for your health, marriage and self esteem!You agree?
