All too often makeup artists neglect hands even when they will be part of a shot. Men frequently have red knuckles. Older people have age spots. Cuts and scars are common.

Apply makeup to the hands in exactly the same basic way you apply it to the face. Use concealer to hide blemishes and a light touch of foundation what perfectly matches the skin colour.

Blend very well. If your subject is a man wearing a suit and shirt, apply makeup around the cuff. Of course, don’t get yellow makeup on a white shirt! Place tissues in the cuffs to avoid the risk.Body Makeup Lipstick Makeup Institute

If your subject is a woman, check the nail polish.Ensure that is properly applied.

In some photo shoots, your subject will be revealing more than face and hands. Legs, knees, arms and who knows what else may be photographed. You will encounter challenges.

For example, knees may be darker than the surrounding skin. Shaved areas such as those under the arms may be lighter. “Bikini lines” may show up where areas of skin that have been exposed to the sun meet those that have been covered by clothing.

Body makeup which is more heavily pigmented than face makeup

its typically water and sweat resistant, can work well in these circumstances.

Generally you will want to match the natural skin tone

  • Cleanse, tone and moisturise: Wait a few minutes for moisturiser to be absorbed
  • Foundation: Dab liquid foundation over the entire face with your fingertips or sponge. For cream foundation use a wet sponge for a smoother coverage
  • Make sure that the entire face is well blended and covered. Don’t stop at jaw line extend the foundation under it also and on the neck
  • Corrector / concealer: Cover blemishes and dark areas with orange, yellow or peach-toned
  • Corrector: The concealer will conceal the corrector colour, what is in skin colours. Application with fingertips or concealer brush.
  • Powder: Use a loose pale yellow-based powder or translucent dusting powder to set the makeup
  • Eyebrows: Shape the brows with a small amount of brow powder or pencil. If you have a dark hair, use a colour that is one or two tones lighter than the hair colour
  • Eye shadow: Choose three shades of eye shadow: light, medium and dark. Use the dark to line upper lid, thinly, along the lash edge. Use medium shade to cover the remaining part of the eye lid up to the crease
  • Eyeliner: Use cake liner and apply with an angled or fine liner brush, or use a sharpened eyeliner pencil. 
  • Mascara: Black mascara is the best to highlight your lashes. Apply in two thin coats rather than one heavy one
  • Blush: Apply the blush directly on the cheekbones and blend it to the hairline. 
  • Lip liner: Apply lip liner in advance of lip colour as the lip liner helps contain the lipstick, keeps it from feathering, and makes it more durable. 
  • Lipstick: Use a lip brush to apply dark or bright colours since these require very precise application. Add a dot of a gloss to the centre of the bottom lip and then blot

They talked about how the students and graduates are very much involved during and after their courses finish. This is very evident with the fact that we bring them to different events and photoshoots. This is also great for them to have exposure for their careers as makeup artists. It is a blessing to have wonderful and talented students that are so hard working.  

They toured around the facilities and showcased our new location at City Walk 2. We wanted to make sure that people know that we’ve moved from Media City and is now in a better area at the heart of Dubai.

Bulgari Hotel with TLMI

9th of August, 2019, we had a client at Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Dubai. With our efforts to help our student practice their skills, we brought one of our students to the hotel. Our students have been taking the Platinum Makeup Course for 5 weeks now and they’re about to finish the course this week.

We brought her for a photoshoot with one of our VIP Clients who came all the way from Malaysia for their Wedding Anniversary at the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts. Together with the YH Studios Team and the Head Teacher of The Lipstick Makeup Institute, our student was able to create a glam look on the client.

For the past 5 weeks that she was with us, she has learned how to properly create a full look on different skin types, skin tones, and different eye shapes. We’ve given them tasks that would hone their skills for their upcoming career as a professional makeup artist.

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.
