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.

Shapes of the Different Eyes – Part 2

Shapes of the Eye
Welcome back to the part 2 of different eye shapes. As discussed last time, the first thing we do when we are faced with a client is check their eye shapes. It’s very important to do this from the start so we, as makeup artists, would be able to create the correct eye makeup style right away.
Types of eye shapes:

Wide Set Eyes

To determine wide set eyes, look at the distance between the eyes and the nose. To do that, measure one of the eyes and estimate whether or not another eye can be put in between the eyes. If there is still some space that has to be filled in-between, that means your client has wide set eyes. 

To correct this, the method of makeup should be slightly darker from the inner corner. You can also draw a longer eyeliner tip in the inner corner to create the illusion that the eyes appear closer to each other. 

Close Set Eyes

This eye shape is the opposite of the prior shape. To identify it, estimate the space in between the eyes, if it’s less than one eye, then it’s considered as close set eyes. 

To correct this, keep all eye makeup on the outer corners of the eyes. This will make an illusion that the eyes are a bit farther apart. Avoid using dark eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes as it would make your client seem a bit cross-eyed.

Downturned Eyes

This shape is quite peculiar. Downturned-eyes look a bit sleepy as the outer corners are lower than the inner corner of the eyes. 

When you’re faced with this eye shape, try to put some slightly darker eyeshadow on the inner corner and lighter eyeshadow on the outer corner.

Asian Eyes

The outer corner of this eye shape is normally higher than the inner corner. 

In order to correct this, add more eyeshadow on the lower outer corner of the eyes to level the eyes to the inner corner.

 

Hooded Eyes

The most misunderstood eye shape. In my opinion, this is one of the most versatile eye shape because you can create your own lines with it. 

The most basic way of doing make up on these eyes is doing a smokey eye that is slightly higher on the middle or outer 3rd depending on the shape you want to create.

Shapes of the Different Eyes – Part 1

Shapes of the Eye

As makeup artists, the first thing we do when we are faced with a client is check their eye shape.  It’s important to identify it at an early stage so that you know exactly what you’ll do to enhance or change its shape. 

 
Types of eye shapes:
Almond eye shapes
Almond Eye Shape

Almond Eyes

These eyes are considered the “ideal” shape of eyes. It is by no means perfect but it’s what makeup artists try to achieve most of the time with their clients. An almond shape eye is derived from the shape of, you guessed it right, an almond.  How to distinguish having this shape is the outer corner is a little bit higher and rounder than the inner corner. Also, the distance between the eye and the eyebrow is balanced with crease and the upper lash line.

Doing makeup for this shape is easy because you can do anything. You can do smokey eyes, cut crease, virtually anything.

Deep Set Eyes

Deep set eyes are usually seen with men. this eye shape is quite similar to almond eyes with a few differences. For example, the distance between the eye and eyebrow is very short, the eyesocket is deep and the crease is more prominent.

For this eye shape, vertical and horizontal smokey is perfect. Cut crease might be difficult because the distance between the crease and the eyebrow is too near. 

Protruding Eyes

Protruding eye shapes normally look a bit more round because the eyeball is a bit more forward. The crease usually is a bit higher than the lash line so you can actually see the eye

For protruding eye shapes, you need to focus  on the outer half of the eye to elongate. If possible, don’t put eyeliner on the inner half of the eye to reduce the appearance of the roundness of the eyes. 

This ends the first part of this series. Stay tuned for the next part.

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.
