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

Dubai Modest Fashion Week

We are all really please to be asked to participate in the Dubai modest  Fashion Week. Its an amazing event. The first time to be held in the UAE to be held here. It has ben showcased in London, Istanbul and New York, sop not such a small event. It was influcted  with influencers, bloggers and amazing designers. It is the first time that The Lipstick Make Up Institute has been involved in a fashion Show with predominantly hijabs. The models looked just so beautiful and elegant in the Beautiful designs all ver elegant for Dubais Modest Fashion Week. There were so many designers that came to Dubai just for this event from all over the world. As usual, The Lipstick Make Up Institute Teams just love Fashion Shows. We thrive on the adrenalin and the rush of the exciting challenges that the days bring. We love the pressure and th dramatic changes from designer to designer. This time though there were not too may changes as it the Title of the Show says, The Modern Fashion Show! so hence the makeup had also to be minimalistic and not so pronounced. Delicate and flawless makeup was the dominant feature of the shows. This was so not to take anything away from the designers and the clothes. I never knew that there so many ways to wear a hijab and look so cool. The clothes were very , " now" and so  in with fashion, we were all so impressed. The fashion world is complimenting each continent and blending from East to west and north to south and the results of this are shown on the runway. We just can't wait for the next Fashion Show. This is the season of events and the teams are all busy bees. Next week The Lipstick Make Up institute Teams are celebrating on a yacht party together as a great ending to the year. We can sail and watch the sunset together on The Palm Jumeirah. Cannot wait. Congratulations to Everyone!!!!

There was even deserts crepes, popcorn , candy floss and ice creams. Not only for the children but for all the parents too. The Events company #mo4network did an amazing job of organising the whole event and bringing it all together.  It was our pleasure and enjoying every single minute of them doing their Rosey cheeks.  blushes, powder and lip gloss The hair that all gorgeous thick and curly, it was amazing styling them while the kids talking and asking so much questions, as kids do.

Arab Fashion Week Final Day

I just have to share these images with you from Arab Fashion Week Final day. It was so amazing. The models, The Lipstick make Up Institute Teams were just on fire as were the Lipstick Hair Teams. Just a team effort. Its amazing the amount of people that come together and support each other and help one another. Have a look at the photographs. behind The scenes are always the best. Backstage is where all the action takes place. The Lipstick Make Up Institute is fast becoming in demand as is getting known because of our dedication. Hard work and commitment to our clients for being one of the best if not the best make Up Institute in Dubai. We work hard for this title though. Pure work but to be truthful it does not feel like work at all as its just what we love to do. This is our motto on the wall, " Love What you do and do what you love". Thats the slogan we all live by and as I say to everyone the day I stop loving it is the day that I will stop. Pack my bags and retreat to a far away island, open a bar, get a little boat to pull clients on water skis. Have a little tapas restaurant attached with a a Spanish/ Pakistani/ Irish twist!. I am half Pakistani and half Irish and tapas originates from Spain Thats where all the fusion come together.   Thats my dream and believe me one day I will do it but right  now I am loving my life just too much but one day not too far away.   "Time to Chill" will be my new slogan to live my life by.   Have a little look at our last day anyway as I am rabbiting on ha!   img_0552 img_0618 img_0609 img_0606 img_0602 img_0598 img_0596 img_0591 img_0581 img_0577 img_0576 img_0573 img_0568 img_0566 img_0563 img_0560 img_0556 img_0554img_0568   img_0591 img_0596 img_0598 img_0602 img_0606 img_0618 img_0626 img_0630 img_0631 img_0656 img_0663 img_0679 img_0618 img_0606 img_0602 img_0598 img_0686 img_0707 img_0722 img_0730 img_0733 img_0745 img_0751 img_0758 img_0762 img_0769 img_0775 img_0782 img_0784 img_0808 img_0795 img_0785 img_0817 img_0865 img_0846 img_0835 img_0827 img_0826

Day 4 of Arab Fashion Week

Another amazing, crazy busy day at Meydan Hotel. We are the major Sponsors of Arab Fashion week for the hair, make up and nails. I am blown away by the camaraderie, support and respect everyone has for each other. These events are something special that everyone just loves to be involved in, including me. Sometimes it make you crazy as the pressure and timings are sometimes unrealistic but its fun and exciting! People respond better under pressure. What does not break us makes us stronger. We are not alone though we had great support from o#brownsugarhairsalon  #wisamnourbeautysalon #resalonsspas for taking control of all the hair and styling under pressure and restyling! #laquaswiss for supplying amazing products for skin preparation of the models. #kryolan for their amazing products and support. #kryolanofficial also #coverpagedubai for doing such an amazing job arranging the , models , guest management , after party and hostesses. _mg_2872-copy

Creative UV Makeup Training Day for All The Lipstick Teams

"We love what we do and do what we love" Thats Our Motto and we stick to it! And the most we love is to create yet unseen looks and concepts in makeup and showcase it to all of you. Yesterday was a Creative makeup training day in our Institute for The Lipstick Team. We love our team and they deserve the best training. We were presenting 2 completely different looks:
  1. Avant-garde makeup
2. Fantasy makeup - body painting with UV Glow colours   About the Avant-garde style

The term avant-garde refers to innovative or experimental concepts or works, or the group of people producing them. Pushing boundaries with the  development of Cubism, Pablo Picasso was part of the early 20th-century art world’s avant-garde. He in fact Personifies this style!

So we were pushing our boundaries and combined loads of different makeup application techniques in our Creative Make Up day.

Of course as always we were using Kryolan products so much glitters, gellafix, crushed mirror, sequences, crystals, Supracolors in colours, Aquacolors and glitter powders and pure colour pigments.

Our concept was to create something different and special.

Inspired by high fashion and fantasy looks, to create an aqua, watery impression followed by glow and shine.

Our models final look is really impressive, different and extraordinary but still she looks beautiful and feminine.

Fantasy look with UV glow colours

Our another look was inspired by the fantastic Galaxy.

This is how we created the, "Galactical Princess" Look, Sparkly and bright.

Handmade skirt, painted top and collar were the main contents of this look.

It was a real fun look to work on Our Lipstick Teams were fascinated as they had never been involved in anything like this before. A complete transformation before their eyes.

I was applying the UV colours in the dark under the UV light with the whole team watching it.

Of course it was a bit challenging but that was the most interesting part in it.

For the whole look we were using Kryolan products.

Kryolan UV glow aqua colors, UV glow eyeshadows and Hair spray and a free hand to draw some funky lines and splash the colours all over the models body.

We really enjoyed creating the look and looking forward to the next project.
