Creative magazine Shoot with Al Khaleej Magazine

We are so pleased to of been involved in  this Creative magazine shoot  with the weekend magazine Al khaleej.
We decided to go with an 80’s theme for the front cover and supply a step by step makeup guide for our creative makeup look.

The Team from The Lipstick Make Up Institute managed the make up and The Team from YH Studios did the style  and the design of our creative magazine shoot cover.
The 80’s theme to spice things up a little and give the readers something different.
The hair was Styled by my good Irish friend, Cyril from Ted Morgans hair salon and with a little help from another good friend,  Jamilla Paul.

Happy Snapper, ready for our creative magazine shoot

Our Cyril is a  stylish guy with a cheeky face.
If I could do a project like this every day I would because its exciting and creative

Everyone pulls together and supports each other.

We actually involved one of our students from The Lipstick Make up institute– Zouha. She was in her final week of The International Platinum Media Make up course and was a great project for her to exit with.

Especially as this was a great attribute to her portfolio that YH Studios made for her.

Make up and photography are just the best combination.

These two Go together like a bird and a feather. Dream Team.

We would not get projects like this if we didn’t have the 2 companies.
We all strive to be on the front cover and finally here we did. Hope you all like the creativity and style of the cover.

We like to inspire our readers so you can achieve your creative look.

Behind the scenes at the hair show in the world Trade Centre

YH Studios DXB supported @hairsalonuae at the amazing hair show on the 15th May at the World Trade Centre.

Khaled Bou Kamel owner of, “The Hair Salon” in the Marriott Hotel in the Courtyard, Green Community who is the most stylish, creative and flamboyant hairdresser with his scissors, owned the stage with his team when he was creating and displaying his talents to the eagerly awaited audience.

In preparation of his models The Lipstick Make Up Institute did what they do best and made them look alive, fresh and cool as they graced the stage with the boys. They are stylish in their attitude, appearance and methods.

_MG_8664email _MG_8682emailKhaled has supported YH Studios and The Lipstick Make Up Institute on many occasions so it was our utter pleasure and privilege to be able to return the favour.

Not all the models that we did the make up for were getting their hair cut but were walking on stage to entertain and showcase the skills of Mr. Bou Kamel.

Here are a few shots of the kind of high hairstyles that were showcased by the beautiful models on the day.

The whole day was about hair and as the models got ready I took them away for a few seconds and managed to get a few shots of them with the beautiful make up, hair then the photography.

Maybe we should all work together all the time. Sounds like a plan to me. Come and get your hair cut and styled by The Hair Salon, make up applied by The Lipstick Make Up Institute then photographed by YH StudiosDXB.

Sounds like a plan to me!!!

Lets do it guys!!

A new concept to hit Dubai, watch this space.

 

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 3

 

Get the best from the App Perfect 365 tip 3 on day number 3 of my secrets to achieving that flawless  look.

Lips

This is a wonderful too. The Deepen smile tool is great for enlarging our smile.

Whiten Teeth tool is fabulous if the light has not quite managed to hit them and make them dazzle so this tool will! But once again, don’t over do it. If your teeth are normally extremely white then its ok but if they are just a shade lighter then just gently use this tool.

The Lipstick tool is great to add a bit of colour to make your smile appear brighter and also the teeth as red lipstick will always make the teeth appear whiter. The only problem with this tool is that the mouth has to be kind of centre to the picture as it pre set to the app so if your face is  not centred and you add the Lipstick tool you might end up with a moth shaped lipstick on your cheek!

Contouring tool 

I love this tool, If you have just been shot at the wrong angle and your face looks slightly plump then you can slim it down with the slim face tool.

You can lift your cheeks too but don’t do it too much as we will look silly if our cheek are right under our eyes and they are not usually!

My favourite tool in the contouring is Enhance The Nose Tool. It casts a shadow which can slim the nose and cover bumps and lumps we don’t want to see. I have a small bone on the left side of my nose which is prominent when I turn to the side and I dislike it so this tool disguises it. Tool, I love you!!!!!!The sample is a pictures taken in the morning last November when my nephews and nieces were visiting.

Here are a few examples of where these tools are perfect.

Example one now look at example 2 the skin looks so fresh and smooth without being over done! You can see that I don’t look so tired. I love this tool!! I also opened my eyes a little bit as they seem smaller when you smile.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 2

Tip Number 2 on how to get the best from your APPS.

We are still on Perfect 365.

This app is just so incredibly flattering its very addictive, as I said yesterday its just like having a make up artist in your phone. Now, I find it difficult to NOT use it! But i just have that kind of personality, VAIN Ha

On this app I use the tools for , skin, eyes,  lips and contouring tools.

Today I am going to talk about the skin and Eyes tools and tomorrow the Lips and Contouring tools.

Skin tool

I us the Brighten Tool and the  soften skin tool, it removes blemishes. I find this better than the blemish tool. The only problem is that people just over do it and I cannot stress enough that, Less is More! I see images on Facebook all the time and people look absolutely flawless and like they have just been airbrushed to the MAX! Its too much guys. Gently does it. We are Not Plastic people!

Eyes tool

I use the Circle tool, which is fabulous is you are looking slightly tired and its difficult to overdo this tool as it doesn’t really allow you too.

The Brighten tool which brightens the whites of the eyes but be very careful as its so easy to overdo.

Finally the Enlarge tool. Sometimes we squint on images especially if we have a big smile on our faces so this will make our eyes appear very small so this tool is perfect but once again do not overdo it as themes are a major feature on our faces and if you alter too much then it will not look like you, you will just look weird!

Here are a few examples of GENTLE Editing, nothing too extreme.

The one of me with the sunglasses on is a PERFECT example of very

gentle editing but can see that it kind of gives you that polished look.

How to get the best images using photo editing Apps on the phone

Good afternoon everyone.

My friends always tell me that my pictures look great from my phone and even when we are out and we all take pictures they whatsaap them to me then I will edit them and send them back to them, my work never stops ha!!

I use 3 different Apps that I find very easy and simple to use. Sometimes when we over complicate things we get confused, even me who works with images and editing every day of my life!

Each App I use for a different purpose.

Today I am going to talk about, “Perfect 365”.

This is a fantastic app for smoothing out blemishes on the skin and generally just giving a little brightness to the face. Its like having a permanent Make Up Artist in your phone.

Here are a few  examples of my images that I have used it for, my skin looks kind of flawless but without being too plastic.

Its so easy to over edit but you have to take a step back and don’t go too over the top. Just remember the saying, ” Less is More” !

Example 1 is the original shot. Example 2 is my edit using Perfect 365 and Example 3 is just how NOT To Edit, its far too much.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Tune in tomorrow for some more examples!

SECRET number 8: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Well the best secret ever and always is the best tip I can give you all.

ALWAYS shoot from above!

When i train photographers in the studio. I get them to do a shoot and I edit their shots and I can tell immediately from looking at the image the mistakes and the classic one is that they always shoot from below and shoot upwards. Now unless you are a supermodel and are creating a Vogue front cover then this is not going to work with the average person.

Doing  this will always always give the person a fat chin, neck and fat everything unless they are super skinny!

I am always conscious of this and its not such a bad thing as pictures are always memories! You will hide any double chin or any imperfections of the neck! It in fact makes you stretch the neck out so giving the impression it is longer than it is and also with gravity makes your wrinkles push back and stretches the skin on the face making you look younger! TRY IT, it really works!
