Fashion Platinum Course, Its that time again when is going to begin.
Fashion Platinum Course The next course starts on the 11th November and there is nothing more to say that you must join.
Its the most creative, innovative, interesting and amazing Course we have developed.
For the 6 weeks you will learn all you need to know about makeup to become a professional makeup artist. We provide you with a Book like the one below which is the cover. Its mega thick and is packed full of information about every aspect of makeup.
Here at The Lipstick Makeup Institute we also have a photographystudio. Not just any photography studio though. We are Special!
We have a GLOBAL Award Winning Studio, YH Studios DXB.
This advantage means that every student gets their work photographed on a daily basis. The students spend tome with the photographers in the studio and get a great understanding of how to behave like a makeup artist too. They also can see the difference between makeup for catwalk, media and beauty.
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 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.
Lipstick Makeup Institute Students First Fashion show
This took place @ V11 last week.
SORAYA B. COUTURE AND VAROIN MARWAH AW 2018 FASHION SHOW
Last 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!!
We are really honoured to be interviewed by the wknd khaleej times magazine. We gave a tutorial on achieving the no makeup look , The way we teach at The Lipstick Makeup Institute which is the trend now in Dubai and around the whole world .
How to achieve this gorgeous look ? This is the question everyone into fashion and beauty is asking. Its not as easy as you think. Thelipstick makeup instituteexpert gave a step by step beauty tutorial to answer all about this new makeup trend .
Here is our tutorial steps and makeup tips to our beautiful ladies in dubai and the lipstick makeup institute lovers .
Here are the STEPS below in print.
1 - cleansing , toning and moisturising which is the most important step .
2 - Its so important to find the perfect foundation for your skin tone. You can even blend another foundation lighter or darker to get an effortlessy natural glow. Our skin colour changes constantly. A bit of sun and we are a shade darker. We must compensate for this.
3 - You can blend the foundation well with a wet sponge or a brush. You must blend it in well though so its almost invisible. This is the sign of good foundation.
4 - You should contour under the cheekbone , jawline , chin, temples and nose. This will lightly to give defention to your features .
5 - apply correctors to even out the dark circles , then highlight the centre of chin , under eyes and top of cheekbones with a cream highlighter .
6 - in order to set the base use loose or translucent powder and blend it with a brush . this will ensure a matte finish .
7 - run a brush through your eyebrows and highlight with a shade that is at least three or four lighter than your eyeshadow . this is to give a gentle defention .
8 - apply an eyeshadow over your eyes . start with a lighter base and move on to a darker shade .
9 - take an angular brush dab it on a darker shade that complements the eyeshadow and apply it on top of your eyes , smudge it later with the brush ( you could avoid eyeliner completly ) .
10 - for mascaras you can choose to apply a combination one for length the other for volume .
11 - to give your lower eyeline just the right amount of definition apply a beige liner and for a night time look you could substitute with a white liner .
12 - for blush go for soft colours like peaches or oranges and for a night look you could use a bronzer or dark pinks depending on the lipstick you are wearing .
13 - apply a lipliner for lipstick , go for glossy ,understated colours in this case its rosy , brown avoid mattes .
Its so easy once you know how and follow instructions.
Long gone now are the days when we paste the make up and have rosy cheeks and seriously contoured cheekbones. Less is more as they say.
Please have a look at the pictures below and see our gorgeous model, Clementine Harriett transformed. She is beautiful anyway but glows with our expert makeup and Kryolan make up.
What a great start to Arab Fashion Week, The lipstick Make up Teams are showing Dubai just how good they are. We have such great support. Brown Sugar Hair Salon, Wisam Nour Hair Salon are our amazing partners.
We are so grateful that we all come together and work like dream teams.
We are definitely rocking the back stage.
here is a sneak preview at what happens behind the scenes.
Great models, great organisation, feeling very happy.
A quiet day though in comparison to what is going to happen over the next 4 days. Hold on guy ha
Look at our name up high on the board. Yes we are on our way!!
Being part of a great team is so much better than going solo.
Its healthy, supportive and even parts relaxing as you know that we are all there to support each other.
Like the first show today, 40 children aaaaah ha , all for hair, pigtails, grungy and a bit of blusher and lip gloss.
So cute, kids on the catwalk is just so sweet.
Also is a wonderful pictures of amazing lamya Abedin. Just a bespoke wonderful designer and a woman too. A great representative of the females of this world taking it by storm .
We are always so proud that students travel across the globe to choose our make up institute over any other to to teach them the skills that they need to advance them into the world of Make Up.
I am always flattered when I ask them, How did you find us"? and they say that they google, "Make Up Schools in Dubai" and they looked at what all the schools had to offer and they like the look of our website, our testimonials, the work that we do and they see what the students are achieving and we are far ahead of any other make up institute. It means that we have done our job well.
The reason that we achieved this is because we opened the make up Institute because we are passionate about it and this is the most apparent attribute and this is clear for anyone to see.
Its not just a business but its our life and we just love it.
I am not just saying it but our students feel at home here and get really sad when their courses are over as we do. Once you leave the Institute we don't forget you though. We keep in touch with our students and try to involve them in our Fashion Shows and any event we can. We really do care about our students. They become a part of our small family here.
The other great attribute that puts Our Make up institute better than any other in Dubai is that we have a sister company, YH Studios DXB and all our students get professional images for their portfolio, how many depends on what course they have chosen
This is such a great advantage for the students to have such images in their portfolio as believe e when i tell you that I have interviewed over 60 make Up Artists and no one! has any professional images. I advertised for a "teacher" and one applicant sent me face cards, I couldn't understand this at all. I asked her that all the years she claims to be a make up artist and have taught for so may years yet she send me , Face Charts. Unreal.
I know how important it is to have a portfolio and a diary of your achievements. I have been a photographer for 28 years so I really do know the value of a portfolio and thats why when we were comprising the courses it was imperative that we incorporated professional photographs for the students portfolios.
Here are the results of one of our students who has just finished a 3 Day Bronze Course.
Amazing pictures with great talent.
Here at Lipstick we always love to keep the team spirit going and keep the teams as tight as possible and learn together.
You can always advance yourself in any are of make up.
Contouring is really popular right now but what make up artists can learn more from is the creative applications.
This is all covered in Our Platinum Course that lasts for 6 weeks and you also leave with an International Diploma that will carry you through to start your journey into the world of Make Up. We teach you not only how to apply make up but teach you to open your mind to the endless possibilities that you can do with make up and the amazing unique effects that can be produced.
Please just come in and see us to discuss anything or just for advice, we are always here to help and love to talk! Especially Liv about make up, she can talk for England.
Talk about passion, this girl was born with a mascara in her hand I think. I have never known anyone be so passionate about a shade of eye shadow or lipstick!
Once we went to a company to discuss using their Hollywood products in the school before we eventually decided on Kryolan, there was never really any competition with really but we had to be open to suggestions.
They showed us some samples and I had to leave her there as it was just not exciting enough for me, 3,5 hours later she calls me to pick her up!
So that Liv, The Eurasian Number one in the world for Fashion Hair And Make Up. Liv is our main teacher in the school so you will be taught by the best to be the best!.
This is why all the girls love the demonstrations and they learn so much from it. Call us on +971 52 83 49964
Here are some shots of the Demonstrations today. The girls get up close to watch each and every stroke.
I think this topic is a big question all the time!
First of all we make up artists are human beings like you clients.
We have feelings like anyone else and also like respect and appreciation.
We are not plastic surgeons and robots!
Why I'm telling this?
Because most of the clients are not clear with the realistic expectations.
What makeup can do and what not?
Lets clear up why are we using makeup?
We are talking about classical glamorous looks.
We are applying makeup to enhance the natural beauty of the face and correct the imperfections!
Thats it easy and simple.
The makeup will not make you look like Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez or who ever....
You don't want to hide behind a mask created of foundation.
And of course much more!!
Unfortunately nowadays we are facing these unrealistic expectations. And what will happen at the end you will get a "bad makeup artist" reputation because you can't make a Kim from everyone.
Well ladies just to inform you this is not working like that.
First of all you need to be clear with yourself what is possible to bring out from your face and what not.
You don't know it?
Thats why we are here ... the professional makeup artists!
Lets start with some tips how to behave on a makeup appointment:
You know that you are going for a makeup appointment so PLEASE DONT WEAR MAKEUP! And now you're asking why? All of us want happy clients happy client equals happy makeup artist! The makeup will be perfect on a clean face and thats why there is no point of applying makeup for the makeup appointment. Anyway the makeup artist will clean up your face and of course the mascara is a nightmare to clean up and after reapplying again. So make our lives easier and come with clean and moisturised face for your appointment.
2. Research your artists work before you book an appointment!As i said before we are all human beings with feelings. Bad comments and judging before even starting the makeup on your face is really painful for us! As for anyone else. If you know the artists work and you book an appointment with her or him you can be sure that you are in good hands and you dont have to judge or question every single move what she or he is doing!
3. Don't be late!
If you are booked in at 2pm please be there at 2pm. Not 1.45 or 2.30 or other time. We are working on time...and time is a very precious thing. Being late is not a condition its a choice. All of us we know the conditions of the traffic, time, etc... so be prepared and be on time please!
4. Give time for the makeup
You are late and now you are rushing your artist to do a magic on your face for 15 minutes. Im really sorry ladies but this doesn't work like this. A good work needs time. If you know that you will require a glamorous and complicated makeup don't expect to be ready in 15 minutes!
5. Don't judge the makeup from a foundation! The makeup in process can't be judge. All of us, artists we have a different style of application. What you do at home in your bathroom, or watching you tube videos is one thing. The other is when you go to a professional and she or he will do your makeup. It will look different and its absolutely normal!
6. When we say close your eyes that means close it and don't open till we say open. Opening your eyes can destroy the texture of the eyeshadows especially if we are working with Aqua (watercolours). So please follow the instructions of the artist. We know exactly what we are doing!
7. Trust your artist
In my opinion this is one of the most important factors in this relationship. Without trust you will destroy the artists life and experience, as well as yours also. No one wants to leave the makeup appointment with bad feeling, terrible experience and even tears in eyes.
To avoid this discuss with your artist the desired look, the occasion, dress, style everything so there won't be any misunderstanding and disappointment.
8. Relax and enjoy
The makeup application should be a nice and relaxing experience.
All you need to do is to sit, relax and enjoy. The rest is on us!
9. You asked for the price. And you got it.
The following question: No discount? or What is your last price?
Dear ladies that makeup artist paid for her studies, paid so much money for her makeup set and brushes. Energy, time and experience.
All this and most of the time we are talking about discounts and last price.
Please respect our work and effort! We are working hard to make you look the best as you can. Asking for discounts all the time and saving money on the makeup makes our work less important and not respected.
10. We often hear this: "Ahh its just makeup i will do mine "
"Why is it so expensive i just want a simple makeup?"
To answer the first question:
Whatever you do, wherever you go the first thing you will check on the others is THE FACE!
Not the dress, shoes, accessories, hair etc... but THE Face!
When you talk to the people they will look at your face as they are talking to you... not to your dress or hair!
On your wedding you are the center of attention so you want to make sure that you look absolutely perfect! So start from your face with a perfect MAKE Up!
The answer to the second question is doesn't matter how simple makeup you want it still takes all the steps...foundation, corrector, concealer, powder, eyebrows, eye shadows, mascara, blusher and lipstick. The difference is between the application technique and intensity in colours, but we are still using the same products and doing the same steps. So thats why you are paying the much money even its a simple look.
11. Using mobile phones while you are getting your makeup done
Absolutely no! Everyone can live without a phone for maximum 1 hour. Using phones, taking selfies while doing the makeup is not only annoying for the artist but makes our job really difficult.
Let us do our job and after the makeup you can take really good selfies with your beautiful makeup on!
No OFFENCE to anyone... this is just the 17 years experience and the every day happening in this makeup artist life.
These are just simple tips how make our lives easier and to make sure both sides are happy and satisfied.
