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!

Burj Al Arab – The Luxury Project

Burj al Arab is one of the most luxurious hotels in the UAE and we had the chance to work with the lovely Carlotta Conca  (www.lustforthesublime.com) during her stay here in Dubai.

Carlotta is an Italian Luxury Travel blogger who has travelled in the most beautiful places around the world. She documents her stays in different hotels, resorts, travel spots for people who might want to come to those places. She also features the food, transportation, the night life and activities in the places that she goes to in style.

We were so pleased when we got an email from her indicating that she was going to be in town for a few days and she needed a photographer to document her stay at the Burj al Arab. So for us to be able to work with her is such a great honor.

We got to the most luxurious hotel in Dubai at the given time and made sure we had everything we needed. Brushes, makeup, hair tools, and our cameras. Huge glass doors and gold embellished walls, furniture, and rooms greeted us upon arrival.

We brought the whole crew with us from YH Studios, one of our instructors from The Lipstick Makeup Institute, and our Platinum Makeup Course student.

As an institute, we make sure we bring our students to location shoots to experience real life scenarios as a makeup artist. We give them tasks, even just assisting, so they know what to do in situations like this in the future.

The student was able to complete the look with the help of the instructor for both makeup and hair. The student also assisted the model by retouching her makeup throughout the shoot.

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!!
