Our Fashion Make-up Artistry Program

The Fashion Make-Up Artistry Program provides students with a strong foundation in beauty make-up artistry. Since the elements of beauty form the foundations of all make-up, this provides the perfect starting point for the novice artist. Program graduates will be prepared with the beauty skills necessary to work in the fashion industry. The three courses that comprise MUD’s beauty section encompass a total of 392 hours over 12 weeks.

Beauty 101: Fundamentals of Beauty Make-Up Artistry

This course provides instruction on the basics of skin tone matching, highlights and shadows, facial analysis, contouring, color theory, corrective make-up, and proper cosmetic hygiene.

Beauty 201: Studio Hairstyling for the Make-Up Artist

This course provides students with instruction in the techniques required to create a variety of hairstyles, ranging from updos to hairstyles from different time periods. As students progress, the hairstyling techniques become more advanced in difficulty, and Beauty 101 skills are incorporated to create a complete look.

Beauty 301: Beauty Lab

In this course, students create make-up and hairstyling set-ups on professional models, in a series of projects that are designed to challenge the student while simulating actual working environments. Each set-up is captured by a professional photographer; photos may be used by students in their portfolios. While students receive lessons on the business of make-up artistry in all courses, this course devotes time to instructing students on website design, resume skills, marketing techniques, and other business acumen necessary to help them succeed in their careers.

Best place for special effects; very convenient and parking right at the back of the school. All instructors are great. Be simple, love what you do and it will be a piece of cake.

I did a lot of research looking for the right makeup school for me and my interests. MUD was the best place for me. Teachers go above and beyond for their students and they have a great career placement program.

I took their master course and I don't regret taking it! This school really breaks that glass ceiling and gives you opportunities to meet and be around professionals in the industry. I graduated a little over a year ago, and I already have my dream job. Working for a recognized professional artist making feature films!
