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.

Another Amazing Sunday

Hi everyone

Feeling relaxed and chilled after another, “Amazing Sunday” at Nikki Beach. Every week we are there doing the photography and make up.  Its just feels like the most relaxing place in Dubai. Very chilled atmosphere, cool music and of course with winter upon us the weather is amazing!

As you can see by all our pictures everyone just enjoys themselves. They get into the spirit and come to my make up teams to get their Native American Make Up done.

Everyone gets into the spirit of the day that turns into night. Not only is the DJ pumping to he tunes but there is added entertainment from the electronic Violinist. Sometimes, there is the addition of a drummer that beats out and echoes the bass of the tunes from the DJ.

 

We have all the head dresses too so we can take some amazing photos of you. Photography is what we do as a job but its not really. Its a way of life. I know I am privileged to have found this forte in my life. I have carefully selected my staff who have the same passion as me too. As there is no point in doing something that you hate and just to pay the bills. In this vocation, it will show. You cannot disguise passion. You either have it or you don’t.

 

I have been a photographer now from starting at the age of 16 years old at college so really 29years. Still, I awake every day wondering what the day will bring. Each day, each light, each blow of the wind brings something new. Even if I go to the same beach every day using the same backdrop I will never repeat the same picture twice. A picture is taken in the moment. Each shot is an individual portrait.

 

Enjoy the pictures and we will check in again with you next week @ #thelipstickmakeupinstitute which is fast becoming the best make up institute in Dubai and #yhstudiosdxb at #nikkibeachdubai.

Ciao for now!

Great Day at Nikki Beach with the Lipstick and YH Teams.

What an honour and fantastic privilege it is to be working with the guys at Nikki Beach Dubai. We just absolutely love being a part of “Amazing Sundays’. This is something that happens all over the world from Monaco, Greece to Ibiza at Nikki because.

Now it is settle in Dubai after opening earlier this year, time to get with the programme and jump on board.

What a way to spend you Sunday, chilling in an amazing location with fantastic people doing what we love.

The them is Native American Indian so goes with the whole style of Nikki Beach with the teepees as their logo.

Everyone got involved and participated in having their make up done in the style, even the saxophonist and the staff loved it.

It was our first week there and I could not think of a better way to work. Seriously, it really isn’t like working, its like being on holiday talking and having a laugh with people.

Just have a look at the pictures, they speak for themselves.

The Lipstick Make up teams did a great job creating a bespoke design for each person but then again thats part of the fun using your creativity and being able to explore the wonderful world of make up. ! Check out theses pictures, they just speak for them selves.

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 2: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

2. Angle your face
Unless you’re being snapped by a professional portait photographer, like me! it’s key to avoid direct head-on shots. Why? Because there’ll be an absence of shadows, which could make your face look wider, larger, or slightly discolored. Instead, stand slightly sideways and tilt your chin a little bit upward or a tad downward. From there, be sure to look at something just above your natural line of sight.
This angle also will give the shape and cheekbones more definition. The light will highlight the petruding parts of the face and therefore cause a shadow underneath making your face looked more chiseled and defined. Your eyes will drop with your face so you will have to look upwards which is seductive, sweet and very attractive Try it! and I promise when you do this, even now as you are stood or sat reading this, drop your head and look up you will immediately feel sexy and a little smile will come on your face.

I know you are trying it, am I right??

The samples attached are a perfect example of this. they are just selfies taken by me and you can see exactly what I mean. Shot 1 is me with my head straight on and my face looks rounder than shot 2 which looks more defined making it look contoured which is done by makeup.
