Fashion Platinum Course, Its that time again when is going to begin.
Fashion Platinum Course The next course starts on the 11th November and there is nothing more to say that you must join.
Its the most creative, innovative, interesting and amazing Course we have developed.
For the 6 weeks you will learn all you need to know about makeup to become a professional makeup artist. We provide you with a Book like the one below which is the cover. Its mega thick and is packed full of information about every aspect of makeup.

We have a GLOBAL Award Winning Studio, YH Studios DXB.
This advantage means that every student gets their work photographed on a daily basis. The students spend tome with the photographers in the studio and get a great understanding of how to behave like a makeup artist too. They also can see the difference between makeup for catwalk, media and beauty.
Its so cool to see how much the students increase on a daily basis with their skills. They see the change in themselves too which is such a confident boost. Once they start to learn the fundamental principles of makeup they start to really learn fast.
We teach them everything, nude makeup, fashion makeup, bridal makeup, special effects makeup, high fashion makeup. The no makeup look, Glamorous makeup, absolutely everything about makeup. We work with designers too who supply clothes and jewellers for accessories.
We have so many lovely people who volunteer to come and models for the students so they can practise and as a thank you they get a free photograph.
Thank you so much to all you wonderful people.
Burj al Arab is one of the most luxurious hotels in the UAE and we had the chance to work with the lovely Carlotta Conca (www.lustforthesublime.com) during her stay here in Dubai.
Carlotta is an Italian Luxury Travel blogger who has travelled in the most beautiful places around the world. She documents her stays in different hotels, resorts, travel spots for people who might want to come to those places. She also features the food, transportation, the night life and activities in the places that she goes to in style.
We were so pleased when we got an email from her indicating that she was going to be in town for a few days and she needed a photographer to document her stay at the Burj al Arab. So for us to be able to work with her is such a great honor.
We got to the most luxurious hotel in Dubai at the given time and made sure we had everything we needed. Brushes, makeup, hair tools, and our cameras. Huge glass doors and gold embellished walls, furniture, and rooms greeted us upon arrival.
We brought the whole crew with us from YH Studios, one of our instructors from The Lipstick Makeup Institute, and our Platinum Makeup Course student.
As an institute, we make sure we bring our students to location shoots to experience real life scenarios as a makeup artist. We give them tasks, even just assisting, so they know what to do in situations like this in the future.
The student was able to complete the look with the help of the instructor for both makeup and hair. The student also assisted the model by retouching her makeup throughout the shoot.
We ended the shoot by celebrating a little with a few snacks and drinks at her hotel room.
Foundation is very important in makeup application.
There are literally thousands of different shades and formulas in the market today. In this blog post, I’ll give you a few easy tips and tricks when it comes to finding the perfect foundation for you.
Finding out your skin type is vital into finding the perfect formula of foundation for your skin. Different kinds of skin types but the most common are normal, dry, oily, and combination. How do you distinguish which one is yours? Take a few oil blotting paper and place them one side of your forehead, nose, cheek, jaw, and chin. Check which blotting paper has oil in it.
Normal Skin: All sheets have a minimal amount of oil
Dry Skin: all sheets are dry
Oily Skin: All sheets have more amount of oil
Combination Skin: Forehead, Cheeks, Nose, and Chin have oil
We are either Cool, Neutral or Warm toned. Check the veins on your wrists. The natural colour of our veins are blue so if your veins appear blue then you’re in the cool-toned spectrum due to the lack of melanin in the skin (skin is translucent). If your vein appears green, then you’re in the warm-toned spectrum. If you see your veins are purple then you’re probably neutral.
Now that you’ve established your skin tone, time to find the right shade for you. Finding the correct shade is usually very daunting. I always suggest going to a physical store when buying foundation instead of buying online. Most formulas oxidise so it’s best to try it on yourself before purchasing it. I suggest that when you go shopping, always start with a couple of foundations you’re eyeing on and carry on throughout your day shopping. Check it after a couple of hours and then come back to the shop to purchase or try another one.
In choosing your foundation shade, apply your foundation to your jawline and part of your neck. Decide on which part of your body do you want to follow (neck and chest or face) because most of us have either lighter or darker faces than other parts of our body.
In choosing the thickness, texture and formula of your foundation, you have to choose it according to your skin type.
Normal Skin: Any Liquid or Cream-based
Dry Skin: BB Creams, Liquid and Cream-based with extra moisture
Oily Skin: Water-based Cake, Full Matte Coverage, Compact Powder Foundation.
Combination: Any formula as long as it's properly primed and moisturised in the correct areas.
Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your new foundation.:)

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 instituteTeams 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!!!!

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!

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!!
It has really been an amazing week and i would like to thank the one who gave me this wonderful chance to achive one of my dreams .

They completely rose to the challenges I set.
The Bronze Bridal Makeup Course ( European , Arabic and Indian ) i have been through all the steps and details with my lovely student and explanied to her the deffrence between every bridal look and how to prepare the bride for her big day and of course practicing every look on a model so she can learn how to correct and define her misakes to achieve her final look by using the wonderful kryolan makeup products .

We are really honoured to be interviewed by the wknd khaleej times magazine. We gave a tutorial on achieving the no makeup look , The way we teach at The Lipstick Makeup Institute which is the trend now in Dubai and around the whole world .
How to achieve this gorgeous look ? This is the question everyone into fashion and beauty is asking. Its not as easy as you think. Thelipstick makeup instituteexpert 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.
