This year, ILLUMIN8 is determined to become the teaching hub of professional make-up artistry in the region, giving budding make-up artists access to dozens of wide-ranging classes and workshops, and bringing the best international instructors in one place.

The studio’s 2017 line-up in The Art of Make-up includes a 2-day, hands-on body art & cartoon workshop, running February 20 – 21, hosted by none other than the hip and very talented Anna Lingis, a young London-based make-up, face and body artist and editor of, who has amassed a bit of a cult following. Her upcoming workshop held in Dubai is great for all artists, because it starts with the essentials of body art, from materials and equipment, texture and composition, to health and safety. This workshop will not only consist of watching intricate demos and learning techniques for body painting itself, but attendees will gain professional insider tips on how to prepare your model, planning on paper, how to execute your creation, adding glitter, gems and prosthetics and how to dress hair. Lastly, it will finish with teaching you to direct and photograph the finished look on your model.

The art of body painting has its moment right now and ILLUMIN8 brings you the first opportunity in the region to explore it with one of the best. Don’t miss it!  To attend the 2-day workshop costs AED 2699.
