Celebrity Makeup School Dubai we have earned this title. This is a a fact. Firstly At the lipstick makeup Institute we have worked so hard to further our reputation.
In February 2022. I had meeting was made with us atThe Atlantis Palm Jumeirah. I met the gorgeous Lyndell to chat about projects. hence during our meeting Lyndell told me that she definitely wants to work with me. This was music to my ears.
Contract for NY Eve
Firstly I was so happy and furthermore I knew that I could do it. evidently, even more so I knew I could do it with style.
We had won the contract for the New Years Eve Event at The Atlantis. The residents who come from all over the world will need hair and makeup. This was great opportunity for me to employ our graduates and students to help.
We had around 45 staff to prepare the residents for the gala dinner with Kylie Minogue. It was a a formal dress evening and very glamorous.
Everyone who came and sat in the seats were extremely happy. We had no complaints.
Setting your foundation Tips. We’ve all been there. You spend all this time perfecting your skin with foundation and concealer, and it looks great – awesome! Now you don’t want that to move, so you set it with some powder. And bam! Just like that: cake face. Now what?
Powder is great for setting your makeup and making sure it doesn’t slide around, but the slightest excess of it can take you from amazing to ‘ew’ in about 2 seconds flat. But don’t worry, there’s a way to fix that. All you need to do is apply your powder with a taco. Wait, what? Yes, you heard us: a taco–a powder puff taco, that is. The “taco” method is one that’s been taught in makeup academies for years and will ensure that makeup stays put while cake face stays in the past. Intrigued? Read on.
Setting your foundation Tip 1: Make sure any excess oil is gone
Excess oil is the number one way for makeup to cake up on your face. To prevent that from happening, you need to make sure it’s gone before you set with powder. After you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, take an oil blotting sheet, or even a tissue, and gently blot any excess oil or product away.
Setting your foundation Tip 2: Pour loose, colorless powder onto puff
Grab a powder puff (it can be large or small) and with it laying flat, deposit a small amount of loose, colorless powder onto the center of the puff. It is imperative here that you are using a powder that is 100% translucent. Using a tinted powder can alter the color of your foundation or even change the way it looks throughout the course of the day.
Setting your foundation Tips 3: Fold puff into taco shape and rub together
Here’s where the “taco” part comes in. You want to fold up the edges of your powder puff, creating a “taco” shape, with the loose powder inside the pocket you’ve just formed. Now, take both sides of the “taco” and rub them together well in order to really get the powder into the puff.
Setting your foundation Tips: 4 Fold “taco” in the other direction and repeat
Open the powder puff up and fold it in the other direction. So, if you folded it horizontally the first time, fold it vertically this time, or vice versa. Repeat the same process of massaging the sides together.
Setting your foundation Tips: 5 Knock off the excess
Unfold the puff and gently knock off any excess by flicking the underside of the puff. This ensures that you won’t be applying too much powder onto your face.
Setting your foundation Tips: 6 Press and roll puff into skin
With your now powdered puff, take it and form it into a “taco” again, this time with the powdered side on the bottom. Then, gently press and roll it onto the skin. Don’t swipe! This will disturb the makeup underneath. By pressing and rolling, you are locking in the foundation and concealer and ensuring that the makeup is really melting into the skin.
Setting your foundation Tips: 7 Finish off with a setting spray
Finish the face off with a few spritzes of your favorite setting spray. Doing this will get rid of any residual powder that may be laying on top of the skin, make you look fresh, and will lock in the makeup even more. No cake face here!

We can easily say that contouring and highlighting is one of the biggest trends in makeup although contouring and highlighting is a part of a makeup application for a long time.
What is contouring and highlighting?
With contouring and highlighting we want to bring back the 3D look of the face, to give more dept on the contoured areas and highlight the highest point of the face.
When you apply foundation on the skin it covers the blemishes and refreshes the face but at the same time it kinda wipes off the features and shapes. With contouring we can give more dept and shape to the face also because we are shading the contoured areas will look optically sharper and smaller.
For contouring we are using a greyish – brown colour as we want to make it look the natural and real as possible. This colour can be 3 or 4 shades darker than our skin colour.
Highlighting is a process of enhancing the face areas where the light “hits the face”. The highlighted area is lighter and optically looks wider and bigger.
Tip of the day: if you don’t know where to contour your face, all you need to do is to check your face in a natural light in the mirror. The shadows on the face will show you where you have to contour. Generally its the hairline on the forehead or the temples, eye socket, nose, under the cheekbones, jawline and chin. Don’t forget the contours are changing as the per the face shapes and they are never straight.
So, what are you waiting for? Our next batch of the Platinum Makeup Course is on Monday 30th May, 2022. Together, let’s explore the amazing world of makeup.

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.
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 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.
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.

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.
