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!

Foundation for You

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.

Skin Type

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. 

Foundation Shades
Fashion Show Backstage

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

Skin Tone

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.

Skin Colour

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. 

Foundation Shade

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. 

Coverage/Finish

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.:)

Wknd Khaleej Times Mag Nude makeup

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.  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.

Make up as a feel good factor – live demonstration

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:

 

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?

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.

Special Effects Make Up To Oldify From Our Institute

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.

Free Creative Demonstration Day

Here at Lipstick we always love to keep the team spirit going and keep the teams as tight as possible and learn together.

You can always advance yourself in any are of make up.

Contouring is really popular right now but what make up artists can learn more from is the creative applications.

This is all covered in Our Platinum Course that lasts for 6 weeks and you also leave with an International Diploma that will carry you through to start your journey  into the world of Make Up. We teach you not only how to apply make up but teach you to open your mind to the endless possibilities that you can do with make up and the amazing unique effects that can be produced.

Please just come in and see us to discuss anything or just for advice, we are always here to help and love to talk! Especially Liv about make up, she can talk for England.

Talk about passion, this girl was born with a mascara in her hand I think. I have never known anyone be so passionate about a shade of eye shadow or lipstick!

Once we went to a company to discuss using their Hollywood products in the school before we eventually decided on Kryolan, there was never really any competition with really but we had to be open to suggestions.

They showed us some  samples and I had to leave her there as it was just not exciting enough for me, 3,5 hours later she calls me to pick her up!

So that Liv, The Eurasian Number one in the world for Fashion Hair And Make Up. Liv is our main teacher in the school so you will be taught by the best to be the best!.

This is why all the girls love the demonstrations and they learn so much from it. Call us on +971 52 83 49964

Here are some shots of the Demonstrations today. The girls get up close to watch each and every stroke.
