Dubai Modest Fashion Week

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 institute Teams 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!!!!

Back Stage at Arab Fashion Week

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. DSC_0146 IMG_2725 IMG_2793 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.

IMG_9544 _MG_2424 IMG_1887 IMG_1913 IMG_1914 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.

Cool UV Makeup H2

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.

Photoshoot for Kids Fashion

Yesterday we had a wonderful day shooting kids fashion with some lovely kids at YH STUDIOS DXB and THE LIPSTICK MAKEUP INSTITUTE ¬†during ONE FRIDAY KIDS photoshoot . One Friday , a high fashion and affordable kids wear retailer in India , thier collection features kids wear , shoes , accessories, sunglasses, headbands and trinkets , to suit all the wardrobe needs under one roof . Kids started arriving with their parents to the studio early morning and i worked on their hair and ¬†makeup and Yasmin our managing ¬† ¬†director and head ¬†photographer ¬†started styling thier clothes , shoses and accesories ¬† which arrived organized in different sizes and colours for boys and girls . The day ¬†was full of ¬†excitement , happiness and joy , we were running after the kids all over the place changing their outfits , playing in the sand. The kids were not bothered about the wind and even the rain at times! We did half the shoot the week before on the Palm as one of the kids was leaving Dubai. It was a must that we had to photograph her though. She is so cool and very stylish that we had to include her in the shoot so we did. Part 2 was on the beach on a very unpredictable day. It was cloudy, windy and very blustery. We had to do the shoot!! There was no time to waste. This time of year the weather is so unpredictable but we took our chances and it paid off. It was so much much fun. More importantly we got amazing pictures and the kids had so much fun.   It always shows in the images and on the kids faces. ¬†Running freely on the sand and in the water is just so liberating for them and its not work its enjoyable. Here are a few images of behind the scenes. Hope you like them. We will post the finalised images once the client has chosen them this week.   IMG_0806 IMG_0808a IMG_0859b IMG_0880a IMG_0690 IMG_0693 IMG_0697 IMG_0714 IMG_0720 IMG_0859 16649319_1255955684481511_6090224857788777067_n 16649443_1255955824481497_6413256827225069453_n 16729031_1255955787814834_2577905083618302003_n 16729331_1255955747814838_5734006393094721034_n 16729349_1255955697814843_8161862666212036088_n-1 16729349_1255955697814843_8161862666212036088_n 16730158_1255955677814845_6485585400823148406_n 16806707_1255955721148174_7344199324908930970_n 16807363_1255955667814846_6166797317372176014_n
