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.

Welcome to Day 1 Backstage at Arab Fashion Week with The Lipstick Make Up Institute Team Day1 is where the magic starts.  Everyone is full of beans are ready to go. 5 Designers  5 Look changes Look 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 No MakeUp 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! #glowingskin #gettheglow #nomakeuplook #clearskin Look 2 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. #smokeyeyes #goldlips #gettheglow #smokeyeyes #goldlips #gettheglow        IMG_9135 Look 3 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.

Back Stage at Arab Fashion Week

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 Brand: illamasqua DSC_0146 IMG_9170 _MG_1732 _MG_2435 MakeUp at the ready

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.

Mothers Day makeup by our students

Lets celebrate all the lovely Mums! The Lipstick Makeup Institute was a part of the Mothers Day makeup filming in Osh Kosh baby store.

IMG-20170314-WA0022 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.
IMG-20170314-WA0068
Students in action applying Mothers Day makeup
IMG-20170314-WA0086-1 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. IMG-20170314-WA0088 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.

Mothers Day makeup
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!!

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.
