Setting your foundation

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

 

Our next batch of the Platinum Makeup Course is on January 9, 2022. Together, let’s explore the amazing world of makeup.

Learn Day Time Makeup Basics

Learn Day Time  Makeup Basics
              

  • 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

MR. Dubai 2019 beach photoshoot

Mr. Dubai 2019 sending Good morning to everyone. 

Mr. Dubai and our team had an amazing day full of fun and joy. As usual from early morning our lovely team was ready to do some incredible pictures and videos for a new campaign. Handsome model of this day was MR. Dubai 2019 – Max Fardan. The Lipstick Makeup Institute student of the International Platinum Media Makeup Course was the one who did awesome  Naked Makeup for our celebrity. 

The first location of the day was in a gym, from where we moved to one of best beach shores in Dubai. Regarding to the concept the body makeup was based on contouring and highlighting . With such kind of job you always need to have in your kit spray with water and body oil. Body oil on the sun gives beautiful reflection of the light. That’s enhancing your highlighting areas. At the same time water  allows you to achieve healthy wet look. Our student did great job and didn’t leave model even for 1 min. That’s the true behaviour of the real Professional MUA.

Pictures were captured by one and only YH Studios Dubai, our Award Winning Photography sister company. 

Here is one more prove that such kind of experience you’ll be not able to find somewhere else.

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.

Before

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.
