FASHION WEEK SS20 – DAY 1

First day of Arab Fashion Week – SS20 

Today marks another Milestone for The Lipstick Makeup Institute. As you all know by now, YH Studios and TLMI have just moved in to City Walk 2 at the Arab Fashion Council Headquarters. And we are so excited with the changes that have happened so far. Our first batch of Platinum Students have started their course 2 weeks back. Now, they’re working backstage as part of the whole team. 

This is the first time that The Lipstick Makeup Team is doing the Arab Fashion Week as the Arab Fashion Council’s official partner. We are pleased to be a part of this momentous event as AFW SS20 kicks off tonight. 

Together with Makeup Forever Middle East, we create the looks for all the models backstage from the 9th to the 13th of October 2019. Makeup Forever was gracious enough to send us a huge amount of products to use for the Arab Fashion Week.

Because of this move, we will be able to give more opportunities for our graduates. For example, we can give them chances to work in major fashion shows, high profile events, and VIP clients. Our students leave our makeup school not only with the qualifications to work in the industry, but with enough experience and confidence to work within any media production company or solely as freelancers.

One major bonus, which will give students a great advantage, is being part of an environment and atmosphere of a professional working photography studio. Our students also have  the unique opportunity to frequently assist a professional photographer in the studio environment on model portfolios, corporate shoots, family shoots, etc and every scenario that studio environments offers.

On top of that, Grimas Makeup Middle East, is currently supporting our institute with products and certifications from Holland.

It is now official. YH Studios and  The Lipstick Make Up Institute are now moving to a new and amazing location. We are now officially partners with the Arab Fashion Council and we will be in our new premises very soon at the Boutique 1422, City Walk, Dubai. Looking forward to being a part of the fabulous team! See you all there!

Live and Work in Maldives

Live and Work in Maldives

 

Maldives
Maldives

As promised, The Lipstick Makeup Institute gives their students the best possible job opportunities. And this is a GREAT ONE.

We’re calling out to all our creative and dynamic graduates to go to the Maldives to work in a 5-star resort/spa as makeup artists. All inclusive – flights, hotel, food, etc. This is a fantastic opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

As one of the top makeup institutes in the UAE, we aim to give opportunities like this to our graduates because we believe in them. Our graduates carry the Lipstick Makeup Institute banner wherever they go, even in the Maldives.

Our institute always aims to give our students the chance to hone their skills by giving them projects even after their studies with us. We always remind our students that learning doesn’t end in school. It starts as you work. Gaining experience is hard if you don’t know where to look — especially paid jobs.

Even as a professional, you’ll always get amazing rare opportunities to work with famous people but for free. When you are faced with a situation like this, what do you do? The key here is finding what if it would be best for you. Ask these questions – what will I gain out of this project? Who is the photographer? Who is the model? Who is the brand? Where will it be published?

This project, however, is a PAID JOB. That’s why we’re calling out to all our graduates to contact us for a screening/interview. We want to see where you’re at now. We want to know how you’re doing in the field. So, make sure you send your CV and current portfolio to info@thelipstickmakeup.institute or contact 052 849 7972 for more details

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.
