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

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.:)

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.

Varion & Soraya - the wonderful designers
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!!    

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
