Our Vision

A Vision More Defined Is a Dream Coming Alive

A school by make-up artists, for make-up artists. This was the dream that started it all. Founded by accomplished professional make-up artisans in 1997, Make-up Designory (MUD) began and expanded into a rigorous academic environment that fosters creativity and experimentation.

With the humble beginnings of a two classroom, 800 square-foot location in North Hollywood, California, MUD started out with course offerings in beauty make-up, character make-up, and special make-up effects. The intimate courses have now grown into four comprehensive make-up programs, individual courses, and part-time courses within two main campuses in Los Angeles and New York. MUD has also expanded globally offering Studio Courses here in India as well as in Europe, South Africa, Mexico, South America, and  across the United States. 

 

Methodology

Make-Up Designory (MUD) courses are designed to maximize creativity and reinforce the skills that are required to work at a professional level in today’s make-up industry. We teach the importance of research and preparation, mixed in with lab work and assignments. As part of this process, we combine short lectures with a hands-on approach that enables students to learn the basics of a given application. Our students learn by doing and are able to get to work on the first day of class. As students master skills, they are encouraged to incorporate them into more complex applications.
