 1
 Size the lashes. Before gluing the lashes on, you will need to make sure they are not too wide for your eye. Hold the lash strips up against your eyelid, and trim them down on the sides if necessary.
  • If the lashes are too long for your personal taste, consider trimming the individual lashes down to achieve a more natural look. Lashes should be longer toward the outer corner of the eye

2

Apply the lash glue to the outer seam of the eyelash strip with an applicator or small brush. Allow the glue to dry for a moment before applying it to your lashes.

  • Alternatively, you can squeeze a thin line of lash glue onto the back of your non-dominant hand. Then, gently run the outer seam of the eyelash strip along it.
3
Place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. Bring the strip down from above, not from the front. This is to ensure that you get as close as possible to your lashline.[1]
4
Allow the glue to dry naturally. Once the strip is in place, you do not need to press or hold it.
5
Apply mascara to your lashes. This will help blend your natural lashes with the false ones, achieving a more natural look. You can use black, brown, or dark gray mascara.
6
Apply liquid eyeliner along your upper lids. Be sure to fill in any gaps between the false lashes and your own to make them look more natural. Use black, brown, or dark gray liner.
7
Use makeup remover to remove false lashes. Dip a q-tip in eye makeup remover and gently rub it along your lash line. Allow the remover to sit for a minute, and gently pull off the strip.

Perfect Smokey Eyes look part 2

Your smokey eye style makeup is comprised of a collection of different looks you create. Each element of makeup is characterised by its colour, finish, and performance. If your makeup is chosen correctly and your looks are skilfully combined, you are a woman with makeup sense.

The application

 

Smoky eyes application 1

Outline your eye contour with a black eye pencil, all the way around. Make the line thicker along the upper lashes.

Smoky eyes application 2

With a brush or a sponge applicator, apply your base colour eyeshadow on the mobile eyelid and above the crease, about halfway to the eyebrows, blending slightly.

Smoky eyes application 3

With a pointy sponge applicator, apply contour colour eyeshadow all the way around your eyes, blending it well with the pencil line.

Smoky eyes application 4

Half-close your eyes and apply contour colour in the crease.

Smoky eyes application 5

You will now need to define the outside corners of your eyes using a horizontal “V” shape. The position of the pointy end of the “V” will control the apparent shape of your eyes.

Smoky eyes application 6

With a medium-sized soft round brush (you can also use a flat one, holding it sideways), blend the eyeshadows on the upper eyelid. With a flat brush, blend the eyeshadows on the lower eyelid.

Repeat your contour colour application with a sponge, as many times as needed to achieve a deep shade. Blend again with brushes after every application.

Apply highlight colour eyeshadow or facial powder under your eyebrows to ease the blending of the dark contour and add some volume to your eye makeup.

For an irresistible deep regard, outline the inside contour of your eyes with eye pencil. Use darker-than-usual eyebrows and lots of mascara to finish the look. Your eyes should now be smokier then ever before!

To keep your bright eye makeup in balance, try a stronger blush, and keep your lips pale with a light gloss application.

 

Don’t forget the perfect smokey eyes are all about blending and practice.

See you all tomorrow as we discuss about Lipsticks and will give you amazing tips how to get perfect lips by applying the lipstick in a correct way

Congratulations to Our Student who just completed The Silver Make Up Course.

We are so proud of our Leila who progressed so much in her 5 days with us. She achieved An International Certificate and 3 amazing images for her Portfolio which is all included as part of the Makeup  Course. We have our sister company , YH Studios DXB who are always very involved with the students explaining just how the lights react with make up. Media Make Up is  completely diffrent makeup just for events, parting or just going out.

This is the great advantage that having a professional photography studio as part of the package. The students on the courses gain such a great advantage as they understand and can apply all the tips and techniques to their working life once they leave the comfort of our Institute.

We are like a family here with knowledge and experience to share!

Just look at the images that Leila left The Lipstick Makeup Institute with. I am very proud of her achievements.

There are so many makeup Artists who do not have any professional images. Com e and join us and get the best of everything!

CHOOSING MASCARA
1

Decide what you want out of your mascara. There is a mascara for just about any kind of lash enhancement–curling, volumizing, lengthening, defining, faster growth, waterproof–plus many products that combine these effects. Take a look at your lashes and decide what sort of enhancement they need.

  • For sparse lashes, look for a thickening or volumizing mascara with a large, round brush with lots of bristles. You can also find a combination primer and mascara formula, which is perfect for bulking up lashes and keeping them healthy.[1]
  • If you have short lashes, look for a lengthening mascara with a smaller brush with thick bristles. A small wand will allow you to get very close to your eye and make sure you coat each lash.[2]
  • If your lashes are full but you want length and definition, choose a lengthening mascara, but one with a long brush with evenly-spaced bristles to separate your lashes.[3]
  • To curl your lashes, try a mascara with a curved brush.[4]
  • For a natural, everyday look, find a mascara with a rubber brush and evenly spaced bristles. Lots of drug store brands have these types of brushes. Waterproof mascara will likely last all day.[5]
  • If your lashes are uneven in length or damaged, check the ingredients on the mascara. Phyto-keratin and panthenol can help your lashes grow. Use a fatter brush on your lashes.[6]
  • You should only use mascara for three months before replacing it, so go ahead and experiment with different brands and formulas until you find your perfect mascara.
     

    Pick your shade. For the most part, black is the way to go. It gives the illusion of thickness and length and can really make your eyes pop. If your lashes are red or blonde, however, make brown your go-to shade, wearing light brown for everyday and a dark brown to amp up the drama.[7]

    • Experiment with colored mascaras. Green can bring out violet in blue eyes, purple can enhance green eyes, and blue and purple can brighten your complexion.[8]

 Invest in an eyelash curler, while you’re at it. If you’re serious about getting knock-out lashes, an eyelash curler is key. This will lift your lashes and allow more light to hit your eyes so they look bigger and brighter.[9] It may not seem like it, but an eyelash curler can make a huge difference.

  • Look for a curler with a rounded rubber pad, which will help curl your lash instead of bend it at a sharp angle.[10]

Applying Mascara to Upper Lashes

Curl your lashes first. Apply the curler to the base of your lashes and gently squeeze for about 10 seconds. Then slide the curler to the middle of of your lashes and squeeze for 10 seconds. Finally, curl the tips of your lashes with another 10-second squeeze. This will ensure you have a natural curve instead of lashes that are bent at a harsh angle.[11]

  • If you don’t have a curler or you’re too afraid to use one, use your fingertips to push up and curl wet lashes.[12]

Remove the wand from the mascara tube by twisting back and forth instead of pumping it up and down. Twisting will allow the brush to pick up the mascara, which is what most people think they are doing when they pump the brush in the tube. What they are actually doing is forcing air into the tube, which dries out the mascara.[13]

Wipe off excess mascara on a tissue or on the lip of the tube. Too much product can lead to clumping. Giving the wand a little wipe will leave you with just the right amount.[14]

Look up to lift your lashes. You should still be able to see yourself in the mirror out of your peripheral vision.

  • If you are afraid you are going to blink when you approach your lashes with the wand, open your mouth. It’s harder to blink when your mouth is wide open.[15]

Place the wand against the base of your lashes and wiggle it back and forth a little. You want the most product to be applied to the roots, which will make your lashes look longer and keep them from getting weighed down on the tips.[16]

  • The wiggle will also help lift and curl your lashes.[17]

Pull the want out toward the tips of your lashes with a zig-zag motion, or another little wiggle. The zig-zag adds length and volume, and can reduce clumping.[18]

Go over your lashes with a second coat. Try to leave it at that–do a third coat at the most. The more you layer on the mascara, the more likely it is the mascara will dry on your lashes and cause the new coat to clump.[19]

  • Mix mascaras if you want–do one layer lengthening, then a layer of thickening on top.[20]

Don’t neglect the lashes on the inner and outer part of your eyelid. A lot of times, people apply mascara only to the very center of their eyelid, which can actually make your eyes look narrower.[21] Make sure you apply to the inner, middle, and outer lashes.

  • If you are having trouble reaching your inner lashes with your brush, you can very carefully bend the brush to a 90 degree or right angle (don’t worry, you can bend it back). This will make it easy to brush those inner lashes without getting mascara all over your face.[22]
Addressing Common Problems 
Remove any mistakes with a cotton swab. If you get mascara on your face or eyelid, allow it to dry so you don’t smear it and make things worse. Once dry, press the tip of a cotton swab to the spot and spin. This should remove the spot without messing up your eyeshadow.[26]

De-clump with a clean mascara wand. Either use a disposable wand or repurpose an old one (wash it thoroughly with soap and water first). Comb through the top and bottom of the lash, spinning the brush as you sweep forward. This should remove clumps and give your lashes definition.[27]

  • Try to comb through your lashes while the mascara is still wet.
  • If you don’t have an extra wand on hand, try using a clean toothbrush to comb out any clumps.[28]

Thicken your lashes even further with baby powder. If you don’t feel like you’re getting the thick, voluminous lashes you want, try this trick. Apply one coat of eyeliner, then dust your lashes with translucent powder or baby powder (you can use a makeup brush or a cotton swab dipped in powder). Then add another coat of mascara.[29]

  • The powder gives the mascara more to cling to, which allows you to build more volume.[30]

Remove your mascara every night with an eye makeup remover. It might not seem like a big deal, but it can dry out your lashes at night and cause them to become brittle and fall out.[31]

 Tip of the Day: Always curl your lashes before applying mascara not after, it can break your lashes.
Stay tuned tomorrow as we will talk about

The magical TV Stick foundation

The absolutely favourite full coverage foundation is the Kryolan TV Paint Stick not only makeup artists but anyone loves it who wants a flawless skin just in few strokes.

As a texture is dry and giving a semi matte finish. Perfect for combination skin and effectively reduces the shiny on the oily skin also.

Mostly used in theatre, TV, bridal makeup but can be used for any occasion.

No primer required before the TV Stick. The foundation  will stay for more than 12 hours on our skin with just applying  the TV stick on a plain skin. What is really important to make sure that the skin is dry (not over moisturised and wet because of the moisturiser or primer).  In this case the foundation will stick to the skin and in 40 minutes will absorb.

Because its full coverage we can use it for creating drag makeup and its perfect in blocking out the eyebrows also.

The application can be with a foundation brush and the latex sponge also.
