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!

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
Fashion Show Backstage

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.:)

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.

The Secret to Perfect eyebrows Tip Make Up Tips Part 2

Theres a saying the Eyebrows are the frame of our face”

They are definitely and this is why we need to make sure that we have the right shape of eyebrows and they are nicely defined.

Don’t overdo them!!!

Every part of our face is equally important.

So make sure that your makeup is in harmony with the whole face.

Eyebrows are important such as cheekbones or lips or eyes.

But how to shape them? And how to make them perfect?

First of all you can choose if you like your eyebrows soft and natural or more defined.

If you are in the first group of soft eyebrow lovers all what you will do is:

  1. clean up the excess hair around your eyebrows with tweezers. Clean lines look smooth and sharp
  2. brush your eyebrows with an eyebrow brush
  3. take an angled brush, get a 3 or 4 shades lighter colour than your eyebrows and fill them up
  4. why use a lighter colour? because we want to create shadow between the hair. If you will take the same colour of your eyebrow it will become much more stronger and aggressive. Too dark just looks so false and really doesn’t look good. The fashion now is to have amazing eyebrows but must be done right.

maxresdefault-3

If you like sharp and defined eyebrows:

  1. Make sure that your eyebrows are fully cleaned no hair around them.
  2. Take a concealer and apply a lighter shade around your eyebrows from the top and bottom part.
  3. Take an angled brush and with an eyeshadow what is lighter than your eyebrows draw a line from the bottom of your eyebrows and a top of the eyebrows. Start to blend the two lines together.
  4. Also brush it. Anytime you can add more eyeshadow colour or if you feel its too strong you can tone it down by brushing the eyebrows.
  5. To fix your eyebrows you can use eyebrow gel, it will make the hair stay at the place and will give your eyebrows  a nice shiny look.

Practice  makes perfect! Always and if you apply this logic to your life then you will not go far wrong.

Don’t forget this golden rule.

Have fun creating beautiful eyebrows and don’t be scared experimenting with it!

دورة مكياج البلاتين في معهد وأحمر الشفاه ماكياج

اهلا ياجماعة!

الآن سوف نتحدث عن تجربة واحد من طلابنا هنا الذي تولى البلاتين دورة مكياج في لأحمر الشفاه المكياج المعهد الذي تخرج في ديسمبر الماضي 2016.

طار Javaria كل من باكستان إلى الانخراط في معهدنا. وقالت إنها بدأت مع صفر المعرفة في ماكياج. في البداية أنها لا تعرف كيفية التفريق بين الفرق بين الظل من الأساس، ما هو يناسب لون البشرة من شخص واحد. هذه هي الخطوة الأكثر أهمية عند تطبيق الماكياج. الكلمة نفسها، "الأساس" حقا يقول كل شيء. مثل عند بناء المنزل، وإذا كان لديك أساسا جيدا ثم يمكنك بناء على ذلك بنجاح. التشبيه آخر مثل العلاقة. تبدأ أساسا جيدا ثم وهذا يمكن أن يبنى على وجود علاقة مذهلة يمكن أن تنمو.

بدأنا تبين لها الأدوات، وأنواع مختلفة من فرش. ثم تليها خطوة بخطوة حول كيفية تطبيق ماكياج بدءا من التنظيف، التنغيم والترطيب.

تحليل الشكل، لون البشرة من شخص ليست سهلة للمبتدئين ولكن إذا كان لديك شغف واهتمام لمعرفة ذلك سيأتي من السهل تحديد تماما مثل ما فعل Javaria. تستمع ولاحظ جيدا لمعلمتها لتحقيق هذا النوع من الماكياج لنماذج لها. ببطء يوما بعد يوم عن طريق القيام ماكياج لنماذج لها أنها حققت أنواع مختلفة من نظرة من النهار ننظر إلى المساء، ونظرة براقة. وكذلك نظرة المبدع الذي يتمتعون به للقيام كثيرا.

نلقي نظرة على عمل عينة من المكياج الطلاب. انظروا الى ما تحقق Javaria من مسلكه. على ملعب البلاتين نغطي كل جوانب مختلفة من الماكياج.

يمكنك تحقيق أهدافك معنا في أحمر الشفاه واستوديوهات YH. أصبحنا أفضل يشكلون المعهد في دبي.
