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.
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 Makeup Institute Students First Fashion showThis took place @ V11 last week.
SORAYA B. COUTURE AND VAROIN MARWAH AW 2018 FASHION SHOWLast Friday, June 22 2018, we were able to collaborate with a couple of wonderful designers, SORAYA B. COUTURE and VAROIN MARWAH at VII DUBAI in Conrad Hotel. In cooperation with Fashion TV, our students from the Lipstick Makeup Institute created the looks for the models before they marched their way into the runway. The beautiful models came out with a mixture of blinding gold highlights and fuschia pink cheeks Avant Garde looks. With the guidance of one of our teachers and the coordinator, the students were challenged to finish their makeup look within 10-15 mins per model in their first ever fashion show. The YH Studios crew also took photos and videos for the event. Models lining up to get their looks done. It was a jam-packed show. The models adorning the designs by Soraya and Varoin gleamed on the cat-walk. They owned it as they felt so confident in their attire. Shining bright with Soraya's gowns and make up that gave them confidence to hold their heads up high. The students are in their last week of training. 6 weeks of intensive training. They started with not much knowledge and now they are leaving with so much that they are bursting at the seams. They are ready to tackle the outside world and start using all that they have learnt along the way. They covered everything from the no makeup look to special effects. One end of the spectrum to the next! I am so so proud of them that I could cry! It always makes me so happy. I love my students!!
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
