THEORY AND PICTURES

Prosthetic makeup (also called Special make-up effects and FX prosthesis) is the process of using prosthetic sculpting,

moulding and casting techniques to create advanced cosmetic effects.

Prosthetic makeup revolutionised by John Chambers in such films as Planet of the Apes and Little Big Man.

TECHNIQUE

The process of creating a prosthetic appliance begins with life casting, taking a mould of a body part (often the face) to use as a base for sculpting the prosthetic.

Life cast moulds made from prosthetic alginate or more recently, from skin-safe silicone rubber. This initial mould is relatively weak and flexible. A hard mother mould, typically made of plaster or fibreglass bandages its created overtop the initial mould to provide support.

Once negative mould made, its promptly fill with gypsum cement, most of the common brand is “Ultra cal -30 to make a “positive” mould. 

The edges of the clay should be as thin as possible, is a stand-in for what will eventually be the prosthetic piece.

Along the edges of the mould, “keys” or mould points are sculpt or carved into the life cast, to make sure that the two pieces of the mould will to together correctly.

After that once sculpting is complete a second mould. This gives two or more pieces of a mould a positive of the face, and one more negative mould pieces of the face with prosthetic sculpt in. Carefully removed and  material is cast into mould cavity. The prosthetic material can be foam latex, gelatin, silicone or other similar materials.

Its cured within the two part mould thus creating the beginning of a makeup effect.

One of the hardest parts of prosthetic make-up is keeping the edges as thin as possible. The tissue should be a thin so they are easy to blend and cover giving a flawless look.

The use of prosthetic makeup to create wounds or trauma is called moulage and is used by the military and medical schools to educate  lesson psychological trauma when exposed to the real thing.

Doing a Perfect Lipstick Application

Doing a Perfect Lipstick Application

Doing a Perfect Lipstick Application. Lipstick Application is a fun way to enhance your look and express your personal style, but applying it can be tricky. When applied wrong, lipstick may look uneven, might bleed onto your skin, and could fade too soon. Fortunately, there’s a simple yet effective way to apply your lipstick and keep it in place. You’ll be looking your best in no time!

Doing a Perfect Lipstick Application

Apply a thin layer of lip balm to moisturize and even out your lips.

Lip balm nourishes your lips so they’re less likely to get dry and flaky. Additionally, lip balm can smooth out your lips by filling in uneven spots. Swipe the lip balm over your upper lip from your Cupid’s bow to the corner of your lips on each side. Then, apply the lip balm to your bottom lip from the center out to the corners.

Trace your lips with a lip pencil to prevent bleeding if you like.

You don’t have to line your lips, but it can keep your lipstick in place and define the shape of your lips. To apply the lip pencil, position the tip at the center of your Cupid’s bow and slowly trace your lips out to the corner of your mouth on each side. Then, place your pencil at the center of your bottom lip and trace along your lip out to the corners on each side.

Smile so your application will be even.

As you talk and move your mouth, your skin naturally stretches out, which can make your lipstick appear uneven. To make sure it’s layered evenly, smile slightly while you’re applying the lipstick.

Start applying lipstick in the center of your lips.

For the easiest application, apply it directly from the tube. To begin, position your lipstick at your Cupid’s bow on your top lip. Carefully dot the lip color onto your Cupid’s bow and the plump part of your lower lip.

Drag the lipstick from the center to the corner of your mouth.

Swipe the lipstick from the center of your Cupid’s bow out to the corner of your upper lip. Repeat on the other side of your upper lip. Then, position your lipstick in the center of your bottom lip and spread it out to the corner of your bottom lip on each side.

Use your finger to fill in patchy areas with a second layer.

Check your lips to see if the color looks even. If you have patchy spots, swipe a clean finger over the tip of the lipstick, then dab the color onto the patchy area. Repeat as needed to fill in your lips.

Blot the inside of your lips with a tissue to remove excess.

Fold a clean tissue in half, then hold it between your lips with the fold facing your mouth. Press your lips together around the tissue and release.

 We’ll always advice you and we’ll find the best option  for you.

BBC Documentary at the Lipstick Makeup Institute

BBC Ireland passed by our makeup institute a couple of days ago to do an interview with Yasmin Hussain the founder of YH Studios and The Lipstick Makeup Institute.

BBC Ireland passed by the other day to do a documentary with Yasmin for a TV show. The shoot was was scheduled for two days in YH Studios, The Lipstick Makeup Institute and the Arab Fashion Council Headquarters.

They were able to feature some of our students working on their models and had an interview with Jacob Abrian, the CEO and Founder of the Arab Fashion Council. 

The BBC crew were able to film our teachers, students and graduates while working on our models in the hour-long documentary.

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. 

The BBC crew also showcased Ms. Yasmin Hussain on the job while she photographed Max Fardan.

We Made History with School Photography

We made history with School Photography Aflec International School, Dubai. 
 Our sister company YH Studios. Which is in our same studio space next door, started  the year with a BANG and making history. It started out as a concept and now, we’re finally doing it. Lots of planning, time and a lot of caffeine were consumed to put this event into fruition.

We’ve taken on a new designed  project where  both YH Studios and The Lipstick Makeup Institute – Revolutionised the way we do school photography.

For the first time in photography history, the so called “Normal” way School photography has been done in so  many different ways but never in The YH Studiosand The Lipstick Makeup Institute way.

We took it to another level. Our level!! Stylish, contemporary and every so sophisticated and exciting for the kids and the staff. 

We made an ordinary shoot into a mini fashion shoot for each child. This has never ever been done before. As a fact, we are the first! 

Here are some pictures of our team.

Super cool days at Aflec.
Getting Ready for Action!

This is what we thrive on at YH studios. We aim to be different. It was well received. A few parents a little sceptical as its a new concept. But in the whole a very well received idea. 

 

I just thought that most school pictures all the kids hair is so messy. they had been running around all day at playtime. Playing football or doing PE. 

 

So, The Lipstick makeup Institute Team prepared all the children with an exception of a few ready for their school photos. Ready for The YH Studios DXB Team to take their pictures. 

 

I also came up with the idea that each child could do a shot called ” The Personality” shot. This is where they brought something that meant something to them For example, a hat , a toy or jacket etc. 

This worked out so well as the kids loved it and we made it fun for them. 

 

Hope the parents loved their unusual pictures and thank you so much for having us and thank to Aflec school.

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!
