Bulgari Hotel with TLMI

9th of August, 2019, we had a client at Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Dubai. With our efforts to help our student practice their skills, we brought one of our students to the hotel. Our students have been taking the Platinum Makeup Course for 5 weeks now and they’re about to finish the course this week.

We brought her for a photoshoot with one of our VIP Clients who came all the way from Malaysia for their Wedding Anniversary at the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts. Together with the YH Studios Team and the Head Teacher of The Lipstick Makeup Institute, our student was able to create a glam look on the client.

For the past 5 weeks that she was with us, she has learned how to properly create a full look on different skin types, skin tones, and different eye shapes. We’ve given them tasks that would hone their skills for their upcoming career as a professional makeup artist.

The past 5 weeks, they’ve been put in situations like professional photoshoots for magazines and fashion shows. In makeup, skills are not the only important thing but also character building and ethics and how you present yourself as a makeup artist on set.

In Bulgari Hotels and Resorts with our VIP Clients, we were able to present our student to the guests as professional as possible. They were very happy with the results of the shoot and enjoyed the whole experience. 

As for our student, she has gained experience and confidence by working with real-life clients which is not available in other makeup institutes. Of course, it is with the guidance of our head teachers from The Lipstick Makeup Institute.

Bridal Makeup Course at TLMI

Bridal Makeup Course is a very popular makeup course in The Lipstick Makeup Institute.

European Bridal look and an Arabic Makeup look. We can assure you that you can learn how to do it. 

One of our Bridal Makeup Course was done last month with a student coming all the way from Pakistan to study with us. She wanted to brush up on her skills as a makeup artist. At first, she thought that her makeup technique was already good and as it turned out, there were still some things wrong about them.

I pointed out to the student her mistakes and she got it in a day’s worth of practice. Now she’s able to blend properly her eyeshadows and her foundation specially contours and blush.

The next other 2 days, she was able to create her own looks for smokey and cut crease. 

I’ve also pointed out to her a few things about makeup that it has to be impeccable, clean and fresh looking. So there are certain colours to be used in bridal makeup otherwise it will look too dark and gloomy. Foundation shade is also important as you have to make sure that it’s the correct shade whether it is for photography, videography or in person. 

Makeup for brides is tricky because you have to make sure everything is perfect. Skin has to look like skin even with tons of makeup on. 

Indian/Pakistani style bridal makeup is usually a bit heavier than European makeup. That’s because the brides are far away from the guests (on a stage).

Successful Self Makeup Application Course

The last couple of days were really fun and successful. A student enrolled for the self makeup application course for 2 days and we had an amazing time with her. 

At first, she didn’t know much about makeup and brought her own makeup. From there, we assessed her things and checked if they were the right products for her to become successful. Thankfully, she had a few brushes that were fine, and powder, bronzers, blush and lipsticks that were right for her complexion. Apart from that, the only items that were incorrect were her foundation and eyeshadows.

At first, I taught her a few theoretical aspects of makeup before we headed onto creating makeup looks. 

On the first day, we did practice work for Day Makeup. I taught her how to put her makeup on, which brushes to use, how to shape her eyebrows and lips.

On the second and last day of the Self Application Makeup Course, we did a review of the Day Makeup Look and Transitioned it to Evening Makeup and Party Makeup. She was able to do her own makeup with some guidance.

Learning how to put your own makeup is very important especially because appearance in the workplace is essential. When looking for a job, the first thing an employer looks at is someones photograph. In a job interview, a person’s appearance is something someone checks out. 

When working in the service business, it’s important to have your makeup done impeccably so that your clients will feel at ease when you talk to them. 

Here, at the Lipstick Makeup Institute, we’ll help you land your dream job by helping you in guiding you with your makeup — be it for your workplace, or for a date night. We’re here for you.

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.

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!

Self Makeup Course at TLMI

Self Makeup Course was held last week. We had a student who came in for it. She barely had any idea about how to put her own makeup and she only had a handful of products in her kit.

On the first day of the Self Makeup Course, we did a day makeup look with minimum amount of products and brushes (1 eyeshadow brush). Her main issue was her hyper pigmentation so I taught her how to colour correct. Orange correctors often look intimidating because of its strong colours but when used properly, it can give beautiful results. Next issue that she had were her eyes. throughout the 3 days, I taught her 3 different eyeshadow looks that suit her eye shape. I also gave her a few exercises that she can do while she wasn’t doing anything at home.

On the second day, we did an evening makeup look. This time, we focused on creating smokey eyes. First, she watched how I did my own and then followed what I was doing. This time, she brought her own products and brushes (2 for the eyes and 3 for the face) with her. When she started doing the look, we realised that the colour of her foundation is way off. it was so light on her and the tone wasn’t even correct. So, it was good that she brought them with her so we could choose a different shade for her later on.

The third and last day, she brought the makeup that I recommended for her to buy and it did a lot of difference. she got her own corrector, her colour of foundation, highlighters, a couple of new brushes. We then carried on to doing party makeup. We combined all the techniques she learned the past 2 days and did a makeup and added an eyeliner, eyelashes, and cream contouring.

After everything, we took a photograph at YH Studios so she can have a remembrance of the makeup she did on herself.

We hope you can come and join us for the next batch!

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!!
