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.

After

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.

Certified Makeup Artist - Students' Work
Certified Makeup Artist – Students’ Work

Most of our students know nothing of makeup. Which is perfect because when you know a little bit of something, it’s harder to break a bad habit that to make a new one. 

Most of our former students are working in the industry now either in retail, salons, media, trainers, and salon owners. 

Here are some of our students’ reviews:

“I did the platinum makeup course at The Lipstick MakeUp Institute, during my gap year. It was an awesome experience, I gained not only knowledge but a decent beginner portfolio to start off my makeup journey! Definitely recommend for aspiring makeup artists in Dubai!” – Keleigh Abram

“Just finished a Gold Course at The Lipstick Makeup Institute and it was so informative and interesting I did not want to leave. I visited may schools before I decide and this by far was the best at everything. Also you get to go into the studio with your models and see how being a makeup artist really is. Its the best training i have ever had. Now I know why they win so many awards. Its true they do deserve it. I know why the makeup team do all the fashion shows. You are the best and thank you for everything. I will be back and I will tell everyone about you. Thanks again” – Willamina Smith

“Its awesome makeup institute and I love it and YH Studio is superb” – Kinza Islam

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.

Final Makeup by one of the students

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!

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.

We ended the shoot by celebrating a little with a few snacks and drinks at her hotel room.

Creative Makeup Week

Nothing pleases me more than getting extremely creative students.

During our last leg of the course, our students get their hands “dirty” during the Creative Makeup Week. They work with glitter, metallic paints, latex, fake blood, wax, and everything that as to do with Special Effects makeup. In a way, it’s like Halloween all year round in the institute. hahahaha!

Our International Platinum Course is a Fashion Makeup Course as we work closely with Our Sister company YH Studios DXB who is a Global Award Winning studio. All our students are privileged enough to work with the photographers every day.  all their models are shot in the studio after makeup. This teaches the students how to become a “REAL” Makeup artist. By this I mean they learn the etiquette of being a makeup artist.

They just don’t learn how to apply makeup but learn how to act in a real shoot. They need to understand when it is the right time to correct any makeup or do touch ups. They need to understand that its a joint effort in making perfect pictures.

The relationship between Makeup Artist and Photographer is very important. This can be the essence of creating the perfect look. Atmosphere and ambiance really shows in the final image.

 

our student learn all about #fashion-makeup and High Fashion makeup at The Lipstick Makeup Institute. If you want to excel in the world of makeup then join our Makeup Institute. We are Award winners 2017 and 1018 for a reason. 

 

We really love what we do. Its a lifestyle not just a career.

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!!!!

Platinum Makeup Course at The Lipstick Makeup Institute (Javaria)

Hi Guys!The Platinum Makeup Course.

Now we will talk about the experience of one of our students here who took The Platinum Makeup Course at The Lipstick Make Up Institute  who graduated last December 2016.

Javaria flew all over from Pakistan to enrol in our Institute. She started with zero knowledge in makeup. At first she doesn’t know how to differentiate the difference between the shade of the foundation, what is the best suits the skin tone of one person. This is the most important step when applying make up. The word itself, “foundation” really says it all. Like when building a house, if you have a good foundation then you can build on it successfully. Another simile is like a relationship. Start with a good foundation then this can be built on a and an amazing relationship can grow.

We started to show her the tools, different kinds of brushes. Then followed by the step by step on how to apply makeup starting from cleaning, toning and moisturising.

Analysing the shape, skin tone of a person is not easy for a beginner but if you have a passion and interest to learn it will come easy to determine just like what Javaria did. She listens and observed very well to her teacher to achieve this kind of makeup for her models. Slowly day by day by doing makeup to her models she achieved different kinds of look from day time look to evening and glamorous look. And also the creative look which they enjoyed to do so much.

Take a look at the sample work of the Make Up students. Look what Javaria achieved from her course. On The Platinum Course we cover every different aspect of make up.

You can achieve your goals with us at Lipstick and Yh Studios. We are becoming the best make up institute in Dubai.
