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.
Here at The Lipstick Makeup Institute we also have a photographystudio. Not just any photography studio though. We are Special!
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.
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.:)

Lipstick Makeup Institute Students First Fashion show
This took place @ V11 last week.
SORAYA B. COUTURE AND VAROIN MARWAH AW 2018 FASHION SHOW
Last Friday, June 22 2018, we were able to collaborate with a couple of wonderful designers, SORAYA B. COUTURE and VAROIN MARWAH at VII DUBAI in Conrad Hotel. In cooperation with Fashion TV, our students from the Lipstick Makeup Institute created the looks for the models before they marched their way into the runway. The beautiful models came out with a mixture of blinding gold highlights and fuschia pink cheeks Avant Garde looks.
With the guidance of one of our teachers and the coordinator, the students were challenged to finish their makeup look within 10-15 mins per model in their first ever fashion show.
The YH Studios crew also took photos and videos for the event.
Models lining up to get their looks done.
It was a jam-packed show. The models adorning the designs by Soraya and Varoin gleamed on the cat-walk.
They owned it as they felt so confident in their attire. Shining bright with Soraya's gowns and make up that gave them confidence to hold their heads up high.
The students are in their last week of training. 6 weeks of intensive training. They started with not much knowledge and now they are leaving with so much that they are bursting at the seams.
They are ready to tackle the outside world and start using all that they have learnt along the way.
They covered everything from the no makeup look to special effects. One end of the spectrum to the next!
I am so so proud of them that I could cry! It always makes me so happy. I love my students!!
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!!!!
Welcome to Day 1
Backstage at Arab Fashion Week withThe Lipstick Make UpInstituteTeamDay1 is where the magic starts. Everyone is full of beans are ready to go. 5 Designers 5 Look changesLook 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 NoMakeUp 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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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.
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". Cool UV Makeup@ The Lipstick Makeup Up Institute.
Thursday 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.
