Achieving a flawless foundation

Achieving a flawless foundation

Achieving a flawless foundation

All in all this is key to any makeup look.

When applying foundation, less is more.

Start with a small amount on the back of your hand. Use a brush, sponge, or your fingers to apply.

Moreover, brushes give a more polished finish, while sponges provide a natural look.

Fingers are great for quick and easy application. Dab the foundation on your face, then blend outwards. This ensures an even distribution.

It starts with good skin prep.

Firstly, cleanse your face thoroughly. This removes dirt and oil, ensuring a smooth base.

Secondly, apply a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Hydrated skin allows foundation to glide on easily.

Thirdly,  moisturizing, use a primer. Primers fill in pores and fine lines, creating an even surface. Choose one that addresses your skin concerns, whether it’s redness, oiliness, or dullness.

Finally, it’s time for foundation.

However, picking the right shade is crucial. Test a few on your jawline to find the perfect match.

Above all the shade should blend seamlessly with your neck.

As I have shown, when applying foundation, less is more.

As long as you start with a small amount on the back of your hand. Use a brush, sponge, or your fingers to apply.

By and large, brushes give a more polished finish, while sponges provide a natural look.

What is important

Equally important, fingers are great for quick and easy application. Dab the foundation on your face, then blend outwards.

Due to this ensures an even distribution.

To avoid a cakey look, build up coverage gradually. Apply thin layers, focusing on areas needing more coverage. Blend well into your hairline and jawline to prevent any noticeable lines.

Evidently set your foundation with a translucent powder.

Equally  important for oily skin.

Lightly dust the powder on your face, paying extra attention to your T-zone. This helps the foundation last longer and reduces shine.

Lastly, mist your face with a setting spray. This locks in your makeup and adds a natural glow. Plus, it helps your foundation stay put all day.

In summary, flawless foundation requires preparation, the right tools, and a bit of patience. Cleanse, moisturize, prime, and choose the correct shade. Apply in thin layers, blend thoroughly, and set it with powder and spray. Follow these steps, and you’ll achieve a flawless finish every time.

Day 2

Look 1
Designer: Next Generation

Welcome to the dark side with New Generations latest collection. With a gothic look to match their beautiful dark stain clothing,  make up by illamasqua to create this look.

We had a light base of foundation to give the clear clean skin look, very light contour just to highlight the cheek bones. On the eyes we used a sliver shimmer to the inner corner of the eyes, taking this to the base of the eyelid, up to the brow bone and gradually taking a darker shade in the eye crease for a bit of contouring, we also took the sliver shimmer under the eye and one light coat of mascara only of the top lashes.
For the lips we took a deep purple to finish off the gothic look.

Look 2
Designer: Jeans Couture

With Jeans Couture funky edgy style we took peach and bronze tones to the eyes.  On the lids we used a peachy bronze across the whole lid, we used a darker tone to bring the colour up to the brows. One coat of mascara on the top lashes. We kept the bottom lash line mascara free with a light sweep of peach pigment. For the lips we had a beautiful plum colour to compliment the bright eyes.  For the cheekbones we took a shade of rouge to match the lip colour.  The base was a matte clean finish.

Look 3
Designer: Laquan Smith

With deep shades of red, black latex and sexy thigh high boots for this collection, we went for the oh so seductive look.

We had to get the make up done before the gorgeous models got their hair done so we had no time to lose. The look was very similar to Jeans Couture. We change the eyes slightly making the colours more pinks rather than bronze, we blended the shade more and didn’t take it as high as the brow bone, using the same technique  to sweep slight pink pigment along the bottom lash line. With the lips we chose a slightly less blue undertone for a lighter shade.  We contoured the cheeks more and high

Look 4
Designer: Laura Macini

Laura Macini create a beautiful Egyptian look for her beautiful evening gowns.

We bronzed the base up a bit for this look, contouring and highlighting the cheekbones and forehead.  We kept the eyelid clean from colour using vaseline to create a beau tile sheen, used liquid liner on both the top and bottom lash line to elongate the eyes. For the lips we took  a light blush shade to finish off the look.

 

 

Arab Fashion Week Day 2

Look 5
Designer: Ilse Jara

A complete eye change for this look compared to Laura Macini. Eyeliner came off and the gold was packed on. We kept the base very light and clean with just a very slight bronze for a cheekbone contour but the  main focus was the eyes. We smashed heavy gold pigment from the top lashliene to the brows, smudging some vaseline on the lids as well for extra sheen.  Lips we took pinky nude colour and kept lips matte.  The hair stylist finished the look off by sweeping the hair back off the models face, this look is amazing on the catwalk as all the lights really shows the gold on the models eyes.

Bridal Makeup Course at TLMI

Bridal Makeup Course is a very popular makeup course in The Lipstick Makeup Institute.

European Bridal look and an Arabic Makeup look. We can assure you that you can learn how to do it. 

One of our Bridal Makeup Course was done last month with a student coming all the way from Pakistan to study with us. She wanted to brush up on her skills as a makeup artist. At first, she thought that her makeup technique was already good and as it turned out, there were still some things wrong about them.

I pointed out to the student her mistakes and she got it in a day’s worth of practice. Now she’s able to blend properly her eyeshadows and her foundation specially contours and blush.

The next other 2 days, she was able to create her own looks for smokey and cut crease. 

I’ve also pointed out to her a few things about makeup that it has to be impeccable, clean and fresh looking. So there are certain colours to be used in bridal makeup otherwise it will look too dark and gloomy. Foundation shade is also important as you have to make sure that it’s the correct shade whether it is for photography, videography or in person. 

Makeup for brides is tricky because you have to make sure everything is perfect. Skin has to look like skin even with tons of makeup on. 

Indian/Pakistani style bridal makeup is usually a bit heavier than European makeup. That’s because the brides are far away from the guests (on a stage).

Successful Self Makeup Application Course

The last couple of days were really fun and successful. A student enrolled for the self makeup application course for 2 days and we had an amazing time with her. 

At first, she didn’t know much about makeup and brought her own makeup. From there, we assessed her things and checked if they were the right products for her to become successful. Thankfully, she had a few brushes that were fine, and powder, bronzers, blush and lipsticks that were right for her complexion. Apart from that, the only items that were incorrect were her foundation and eyeshadows.

At first, I taught her a few theoretical aspects of makeup before we headed onto creating makeup looks. 

On the first day, we did practice work for Day Makeup. I taught her how to put her makeup on, which brushes to use, how to shape her eyebrows and lips.

On the second and last day of the Self Application Makeup Course, we did a review of the Day Makeup Look and Transitioned it to Evening Makeup and Party Makeup. She was able to do her own makeup with some guidance.

After

Learning how to put your own makeup is very important especially because appearance in the workplace is essential. When looking for a job, the first thing an employer looks at is someones photograph. In a job interview, a person’s appearance is something someone checks out. 

When working in the service business, it’s important to have your makeup done impeccably so that your clients will feel at ease when you talk to them. 

Here, at the Lipstick Makeup Institute, we’ll help you land your dream job by helping you in guiding you with your makeup — be it for your workplace, or for a date night. We’re here for you.

Last Day of Classes

Last day is always the hardest yet fulfilling day of the courses. The students were tasked to do an Instagram Glamour inspired Makeup with a twist.  As their last photoshoot, they did their best to create their final look as impeccable as possible.

Choosing an inspiration online for their last look was a daunting task but they were able to pull it off. Checking popular ‘makeup gurus’ online made them feel confident about doing their task.

Final Makeup by one of the students

How to mix and choose colours and create shapes are the first thing that our students learn in The International Platinum Media Makeup Course. In this final piece, they’re applying everything they’ve learned from choosing a foundation colour, checking the skin type, and choosing colours that would suit their model’s eye colour. They also had to apply contouring and highlighting according to their model’s facial shape. They also learned how to draw their model’s eyebrows, eyeliner and lips, doing an ombre lip, and lots of other things that they’ve learned.

Things that they’ve been struggling with in the first weeks they were able to achieve on their final week of photoshoots. As earlier during the week they did other shoots like the No Makeup Makeup Look and Makeup for Mature Ladies. They also did Evening looks, Glamour, and Arabic makeup. Special FX, Creative Makeup, High Fashion, and Creative Instagram Glamour Makeup were last. All of which they had to conceptualise by themselves prior to the shoots.

The students gave it their all during the final leg of their course making sure they were able to finish their looks on time. The students also stayed with the photographer to check how their models look so they can do any touch ups if needed.

That was really a fun week!

 

Foundation for You

Foundation is very important in makeup application.

There are literally thousands of different shades and formulas in the market today. In this blog post, I’ll give you a few easy tips and tricks when it comes to finding the perfect foundation for you.

 

Fashion Show Backstage

Skin Type

Finding out your skin type is vital into finding the perfect formula of foundation for your skin. Different kinds of skin types but the most common are normal, dry, oily, and combination. How do you distinguish which one is yours? Take a few oil blotting paper and place them one side of your forehead, nose, cheek, jaw, and chin. Check which blotting paper has oil in it. 

Foundation Shades
Fashion Show Backstage

Normal Skin: All sheets have a minimal amount of oil

Dry Skin: all sheets are dry

Oily Skin: All sheets have more amount of oil

Combination Skin: Forehead, Cheeks, Nose, and Chin have oil

Skin Tone

We are either Cool, Neutral or Warm toned. Check the veins on your wrists. The natural colour of our veins are blue so if your veins appear blue then you’re in the cool-toned spectrum due to the lack of melanin in the skin (skin is translucent). If your vein appears green, then you’re in the warm-toned spectrum. If you see your veins are purple then you’re probably neutral.

Skin Colour

Now that you’ve established your skin tone, time to find the right shade for you. Finding the correct shade is usually very daunting. I always suggest going to a physical store when buying foundation instead of buying online. Most formulas oxidise so it’s best to try it on yourself before purchasing it. I suggest that when you go shopping, always start with a couple of foundations you’re eyeing on and carry on throughout your day shopping. Check it after a couple of hours and then come back to the shop to purchase or try another one. 

Foundation Shade

In choosing your foundation shade, apply your foundation to your jawline and part of your neck. Decide on which part of your body do you want to follow (neck and chest or face) because most of us have either lighter or darker faces than other parts of our body. 

Coverage/Finish

In choosing the thickness, texture and formula of your foundation, you have to choose it according to your skin type.

Normal Skin: Any Liquid or Cream-based

Dry Skin: BB Creams, Liquid and Cream-based with extra moisture

Oily Skin: Water-based Cake, Full Matte Coverage, Compact Powder Foundation.

Combination: Any formula as long as it’s properly primed and moisturised in the correct areas.

Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your new foundation.:)

Mothers Day makeup by our students

Lets celebrate all the lovely Mums!

The Lipstick Makeup Institute was a part of the Mothers Day makeup filming in Osh Kosh baby store.

IMG-20170314-WA0023-1

IMG-20170314-WA0022

Your setup reflects you. Make sure that your makeup products and brushes are always clean and well organised.

We took our students to experience the working on a location and in front of camera feeling of the Mothers Day makeup filming .

Our students were responsible for a nice flawless and fresh makeup on these lovely ladies.

IMG-20170314-WA0068
Students in action applying Mothers Day makeup

IMG-20170314-WA0086-1

The task was easy. The mothers got few questions to answer while our students are pampering them and making sure they look lovely and perfectly made up. In this case the perfectly made up means not over the top, nothing glamorous but just a touch of makeup what will make the face fresh, the skin flawless.

The less is always more. This is the most important to memorise!

Always work with the face and the features. Don’t try to apply the same makeup style on every single face.

We are all unique, we all have a different personality also different needs when it comes to makeup. What will suit to me won’t suit you and to some other person.

Our students are trained in that way to recognise the needs of different faces and features. Makeup is used to enhance the beauty and correct the small imperfections not to make you look like a different person.

IMG-20170314-WA0088

Todays makeup look was a Mothers Day makeup. Why is it different than the other makeup looks?

Its very light as a base. On the eyes we were using beige, browns with a touch of highlight. Mascara of course is a must. On the cheeks we added a touch of peach-orange colour to give a refreshing effect for the face as some of our ladies didn’t sleep much. On the lips a transparent lipgloss.

IMG-20170314-WA0099
Mothers Day makeup

Our students in action. Beautifying our lovely models.

It was fun. We heard loads of stories about the funniest stories about their kids, the most important words they love to hear from their kids, and the everyday with 2 or 3 kids in the house.

All these lovely ladies deserve loads of attention, love and pampering… not only when its Mothers Day… but every day!!
