Its so cool to see  how much the students increase on a daily basis with their skills. They see the change in themselves too which is such a confident boost. Once they start to learn the fundamental principles of makeup they start to really learn fast.   We teach them everything, nude makeup, fashion makeup, bridal makeup, special effects makeup, high fashion makeup. The no makeup look, Glamorous makeup, absolutely everything about makeup. We work with designers too who supply clothes and jewellers for accessories.   We have so many lovely people who volunteer to come and models for the students so they can practise and as a thank you they get a free photograph.   Thank you so much to all you wonderful people.      

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.

Lipstick’s Students at the Emirates Palace

The Lipstick Makeup Institute Graduates worked at the Emirates Palace for a day.

20th of July, 2018 marks a very special day in the Lipstick Makeup Institute's history. Together with our partners from Ted Morgan, our former students took in the task of creating the looks for Chinese dancers and musicians who were invited to perform for UAE's Royal family and China's President Xi Jinping at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. https://www.thenational.ae/uae/heritage/orchestral-performance-hits-the-right-note-for-chinese-visit-1.752592 Artists from all around the world gathered in Abu Dhabi for this special event prepared performances that highlighted the relationship of the UAE with China with fusions of the Far and Middle East in song and dance. Behind the Scenes Rehearsals Our graduates were challenged to do makeup on about 20 people in a span of 2 hours with the guidance of one of the teachers and organisers. Behind the Scenes - Backstage They were tasked to do traditional Chinese makeup with red and orange eyeshadow and a scarlet red lip.   Work in Progress Pegs for the Show They also did makeup on the European  and Emirati Musicians with a classic light smokey eye and nude or red lips. As for the kids, they had very simple makeup that suit their age and performance - clean foundation, blush, lip gloss. As the students hustle backstage, Chinese Reporters come in and out of the makeup room to interview  the performers. It was a very busy and stressful day but in the end, it was all worth it.

The Life of a Makeup Artist

The Life of a Makeup Artist Have you ever spent hours late at night watching makeup tutorials online and thought…hmm I’d love to be her/him one day.I bet you have as I have in the past. I have imagined working with famous  celebrities and traveling around the world doing what I love, while getting paid for it. So I took the chance, flew to Dubai and the rest was history.
I thought the life of a Makeup Artist was easy.
Believe me, I had to crawl my way into the industry, as years ago, makeup artists from my country were not as in demand as they are now. I had to train every single day crying while I drew eyeliners. I have lived in places not suitable for human beings and worked with impossible personalities. But in spite of all that, I kept going. I honed my skills, trying to gain as much experience as I can, learned from different styles of makeup from different people, and always having that goal of stepping up in my career. Fast-forward 15 years later, I still haven’t reached all my goals. So far, I’ve crossed out a few things off my bucket list though - such as, worked for VIPs of Dubai, princesses, celebrities, worked in media, getting my work published in magazines, attending classy events, meeting amazing people in the industry and so much more. Now because of all the experiences I’ve had, I can teach a new generation of men and women what I’ve learned. And maybe you don’t have to go through what I’ve gone through by taking our Platinum Makeup Course this Ramadan.
The Lipstick Makeup Institute is offering a 40% discount 25,000 AED to 15,000 AED for a limited time. If you take this course, I’m sure you’ll get ahead in the game really fast. Just call: 0528349964

Amazing Pool Shoot with Lara Tabet

What a great pool shoot with Lara Tabet Amazing Pool Shoot with a beach body to die for! Hi Guys I'm Chaliya the new head makeup artist here at The Lipstick Makeup Institute. Im British from the UK, I have lived in Dubai for 4 years. I have a huge passion for make up. I previously worked for Mac Cosmetics in Dubai & London Harrods, which was what influenced me to become a makeup educator. "Its a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together" I love being able to pass on my knowledge of makeup to the students & watch them develop into great makeup artists. I am teaching master classes with the students, where they get to learn all aspects of makeup from beauty to special effects. This is when they can really show their talents. Their imaginations can run wild. We have many  courses for beginners who have no experience in makeup. We  teach them everything they need to know. My  1st out of studio shoot was an amazing experience. In an amazing location in City Walk Dubai. Working with the sand & water between your toes, out in the sun what more could you want! Lara looking beautiful in her glamours bikinis. Amazing Views with the Burj Khalifa. Beautiful Sunset in the distance. Dubai is such a magical place for a photo shoot, with the beach views, amazing tall buildings Applying makeup touch ups when needed. So much fun can't wait for the next beach shoot! Lara Tabet is such an inspiring woman she's known as a Brand Ambassador, Middle East Luxury Business Developer, Official Spokeswoman for Arab Fashion Council and TV Presenter You can follow her on Instagram @laratabetgallery

Mothers Day makeup by our students

Lets celebrate all the lovely Mums! The Lipstick Makeup Institute was a part of the Mothers Day makeup filming in Osh Kosh baby store.

IMG-20170314-WA0022 Your setup reflects you. Make sure that your makeup products and brushes are always clean and well organised. We took our students to experience the working on a location and in front of camera feeling of the Mothers Day makeup filming . Our students were responsible for a nice flawless and fresh makeup on these lovely ladies.
IMG-20170314-WA0068
Students in action applying Mothers Day makeup
IMG-20170314-WA0086-1 The task was easy. The mothers got few questions to answer while our students are pampering them and making sure they look lovely and perfectly made up. In this case the perfectly made up means not over the top, nothing glamorous but just a touch of makeup what will make the face fresh, the skin flawless. The less is always more. This is the most important to memorise! Always work with the face and the features. Don't try to apply the same makeup style on every single face. We are all unique, we all have a different personality also different needs when it comes to makeup. What will suit to me won't suit you and to some other person. Our students are trained in that way to recognise the needs of different faces and features. Makeup is used to enhance the beauty and correct the small imperfections not to make you look like a different person. IMG-20170314-WA0088 Todays makeup look was a Mothers Day makeup. Why is it different than the other makeup looks? Its very light as a base. On the eyes we were using beige, browns with a touch of highlight. Mascara of course is a must. On the cheeks we added a touch of peach-orange colour to give a refreshing effect for the face as some of our ladies didn't sleep much. On the lips a transparent lipgloss.

Mothers Day makeup
Our students in action. Beautifying our lovely models. It was fun. We heard loads of stories about the funniest stories about their kids, the most important words they love to hear from their kids, and the everyday with 2 or 3 kids in the house. All these lovely ladies deserve loads of attention, love and pampering... not only when its Mothers Day... but every day!!  

Cool UV Makeup H2

Another interesting day using Cool UV Makeup  and at The Lipstick makeup Institute. We gave our students  an opportunity to use their skills that they have learnt.  I have them to the task apply simple techniques. We have a party to attend for Career soon and they want this kind of tribal make up. so the students can have experience at this kind of body spray work I set them thee task. I bought the stencils from the art shop and the paints from, "kryolan". Some are UV and some not. The UV just looks so vibrant though.   We started with the green Cool UV makeup base and to get a clear smooth body spray cover is also an art. Slowly and evenly is always the best. Its better to do a few layers then one really full one as the paint will run. You also get different textures and tones if you apply in the correct way. If you want this of course. It does create more depth rather than one block colour. After this is applied then we can start with the stencils. As I told the students its best to wet the Aqua colours and dab rather than brush. This way you will get and even effect without brush strokes.   The trick is all to work fast! efficient, confident will work best with this kind of UV Makeup. Also, not to make it look like stencils. To do the work on the arm you have to repeat the stencil 3 times so join the line up! Use free hand. Give some depth to it also by adding some gold or brown to create a 3D effect.   Here are a few shots from behind the scenes and a couple from the final images in the studio. Please enjoy them, we enjoyed really  creating the look.
