34 MEA MARKETS / 2018 UAE Business Awards , Best Fashion Photography Studio - Dubai The LipstickMake Up Institute and YH Studios is the onlymake up institute in the world to have an award-winning photography studio as a partner company so the students get the best training in every aspect of mediamakeup. Having won last year, YasminHussain is keen to update us on how far the studio has come over the past 12months and how it has achieved the success of winning a second award in this prestigious programme. With two UAE Business Awards’ titles under its belt, The Lipstick Make Up Institute and YH Studios has achieved phenomenal success since inception. Yasmin explores how UA180061 the firm’s dedicated and talented staff are central to its success and how they drive the firm to even greater achievements on a daily basis. “To be nominated in the first place is just overwhelming, but to win two years consecutively is just so amazing. It is a reflection of the dedication and commitment of both myself and my team. Without the passion and complete love for our chosen careers that we all deliver on a daily basis we could not achieve what we do together. The way the team has grown is more like a family than individuals working for a company. We all support each other in everything we do.” Overall, as a diverse business offering a vast array of services, the institute contains a vast, multicultural team who all work together to drive excellence for clients. The Lipstick Make Up Institute was created to represent the connection between Media and Make Up in a stylish, fashionable and unique way. Its students have an amazing advantage of receiving a foundation to build careers as creative and unique make up artists, thanks to its collaboration with the YH Studios, which offer a range of photography services. Students from around the world flock to the school to gain first-class knowledge and expertise, and as such the school has grown over the past year, and today it incorporates a videography department as it moves to adapt around changes in the industry. Yasmin concludes by excitedly exploring how the firm is growing and prospering. “As the market is changing, so are we. The team at the Lipstick Make Up Institute is growing and the diversity of the company is too, as I am keen to move into new markets, and, eventually, would like more of an arts centre. We are also working closely with Wella, utilising their products to give our students a taste of how to use luxury hair care products. As part of this collaboration they are eager to use the MakeUp Institute for their training a week a month, and thanks to this opportunity we will shortly be moving to larger premises to accommodate them. This offers us a myriad of enticing opportunities for further growth, and as such we look forward to a bright future for both the institute and our photography studio.” Company: The Lipstick Make Up Institute and YH Studios Contact: Yasmin Hussain Address: Dubai Media City CNN Building, Office 302, Dubai, P.O.BOX 502047, UAE Phone: 00971 4 5587515 Website:
