Photoshoot for Kids Fashion

Yesterday we had a wonderful day shooting kids fashion with some lovely kids at YH STUDIOS DXB and THE LIPSTICK MAKEUP INSTITUTE  during ONE FRIDAY KIDS photoshoot . One Friday , a high fashion and affordable kids wear retailer in India , thier collection features kids wear , shoes , accessories, sunglasses, headbands and trinkets , to suit all the wardrobe needs under one roof . Kids started arriving with their parents to the studio early morning and i worked on their hair and  makeup and Yasmin our managing    director and head  photographer  started styling thier clothes , shoses and accesories   which arrived organized in different sizes and colours for boys and girls . The day  was full of  excitement , happiness and joy , we were running after the kids all over the place changing their outfits , playing in the sand. The kids were not bothered about the wind and even the rain at times! We did half the shoot the week before on the Palm as one of the kids was leaving Dubai. It was a must that we had to photograph her though. She is so cool and very stylish that we had to include her in the shoot so we did. Part 2 was on the beach on a very unpredictable day. It was cloudy, windy and very blustery. We had to do the shoot!! There was no time to waste. This time of year the weather is so unpredictable but we took our chances and it paid off. It was so much much fun. More importantly we got amazing pictures and the kids had so much fun.   It always shows in the images and on the kids faces.  Running freely on the sand and in the water is just so liberating for them and its not work its enjoyable. Here are a few images of behind the scenes. Hope you like them. We will post the finalised images once the client has chosen them this week.   IMG_0806 IMG_0808a IMG_0859b IMG_0880a IMG_0690 IMG_0693 IMG_0697 IMG_0714 IMG_0720 IMG_0859 16649319_1255955684481511_6090224857788777067_n 16649443_1255955824481497_6413256827225069453_n 16729031_1255955787814834_2577905083618302003_n 16729331_1255955747814838_5734006393094721034_n 16729349_1255955697814843_8161862666212036088_n-1 16729349_1255955697814843_8161862666212036088_n 16730158_1255955677814845_6485585400823148406_n 16806707_1255955721148174_7344199324908930970_n 16807363_1255955667814846_6166797317372176014_n

Tricks and tips on how to do Ombre Lips

  Hi there! Today we will talk about how to create and define ombre lipstick! Ombre means having two different colours that are monochromatic. a96820ee46c5c8df1645ff32033a81a6 Ombre isn’t just for your hair! The sexy, ombré  lip look is one you’re going to want to wear always, and shout to the world about it. Be creative and bold with your makeup and try out this ombre lip look. Ombre lips can look awesome, but if not done correctly they can make you look very tacky! The secret to doing ombre lips is to first try it out with your regular lip colors. Play around with different hues that merge well together and once you are satisfied with the results only then step out into the open. 25-OmbreLips Step by Step Ombre Lips: Apply concealer over your lips to hide the natural colour. Use the dark lip liner to create a line around the edge of your lips as you would normally. Add more of this dark colour lip liner to the corner of your lips bringing this dark colour in towards the middle, but do not colour all of your lips with this shade. You can also extend this line and thicken it at the top and bottom of your lip if you wish. Apply your pale colour to the middle of your lips that do not have the darker lip liner on them. Press your lips together once or twice but do not smear the colours together by rubbing your lips side to side or back and forth. Simply press your lips together and pull apart again in one smooth motion. At this stage you can use your lip brush or cotton bud to blend the edges of your colours together to create a fading effect. Thank you guys in tuning in. Tomorrow we will talk about do's and don't about day time makeup!    

Lipstick do’s and don’t

  Lipstick is an essential part of almost every woman’s daily makeup routine. However, many women shy away from the red tones they find in the cosmetic aisle. Fortunately, you can pull off those brave shades with a little lipstick know-how. Here are ten dos and don’ts of wearing red lipstick:   images-1   1. WEAR DARKER FOUNDATION. If you’re going to go bold with your lip color, you’ve got to have a complementary backdrop for your face. For those with lighter skin tones, it’s a good idea to choose foundations that will provide darker, olive bases. Red lips can be too much of a contrast against pale skin. The darker your lips are, the darker your foundation should be. 2.DON’T BE AFRAID TO BLEND COLOURS. Do you like the look of red lipstick, but think it might be too loud for you? There’s an easy solution: customize your shade. Simply take a lighter hue like coral or mauve and blend it with that rose or burgundy you’ve been eyeing. The result will be a more muted tone that nearly anyone will be comfortable wearing. 3. USE IT FOR THE RIGHT OCCASION. While everyone loves red, luscious lips, the look isn’t appropriate for every social situation. Some of the deeper shades can be a little jarring to people you run into at the gym or the kids’ soccer game. Likewise, you want everyone to be listening to your business proposal at that morning office meeting, not staring at your lips. Only paint your kisser red when you know you’re dealing with a fun, playful atmosphere, such as a night out with the girls. Then, you’ll be one step ahead in painting the town red! 4. DON’T OVER DO IT. If you want to avoid all the lipstick smudges and stains, you can start by only applying a light coating to your lips. This is especially important for red lipstick since it’s easier to spot on teeth and collars. Rolling once or twice around your lips should be sufficient to achieve the desired effect. For even more control of your coverage, spread the lipstick using a lip brush. Just remember that a little dab will do you.   _MG_4759   Thank you! for your time on reading the tips and tricks for today!

How to make your lipstick stay for long hours

  Hi everyone today we will talk about on how to make your lipstick stay for long hours. Rocking red lips is the fastest way to look glam and festive for the holidays. But with so many yummy treats to snack on and maybe a few smooches under the mistletoe, that red lipstick could end up everywhere but your lips if you're not careful. To avoid clown mouth, follow these super-easy steps to keep your lipstick where it belongs—on your gorgeous pout!   IMG_4248c  

1. Exfoliate. Scrub your lips with the rest of your face while you're in the shower in the morning. A gentle exfoliator will smooth over the flakes that come with winter's chapped lips.

2. Moisturize. With the temperatures dropping faster than you can say "pumpkin spice latté," moisturizing everything, including your lips is key. Stock up on a long-lasting chapstick to keep your pucker from getting chapped and use it before applying lipstick to help it go on smoothly.

3. Prime & Line. Use an easy-to-apply lip primer to set the stage for the bold color. Once it's absorbed, outline you lips in a liner that's the same shade of your natural lip color.

4. Add Your Red. Apply your red lipstick of choice in two swipes. Blot a couple times on a tissue and repeat with another swipe of lipstick, followed by another blot. Do this until you score your desired color strength.

5. Set with Powder. You heard us, powder—on your lips. A light, transulescent powder will help keep the color in place even after you enjoy a huge mug of hot chocolate!


  • Always make sure that your lip liner is freshly sharpened so that you're not transferring any bacteria from it onto your lips.
  • If you want a special touch, just add lip gloss in the center of your lips to create a bright glossy effect.
  • Blotting excess moisturizer prevents lipstick from sliding off.
  • It is a good idea to use a nude lip liner since it goes with most lipsticks and doesn't create a harsh line.
  • It might sound a tad radical but throwing your make-up pencil sharpener in the dishwasher or washing by hand can also be very efficacious in removing bacteria. If you have a twist-up pencil it never hurts to break off the tip and wipe with alcohol before using.
