About Our LA Location

MUD’s roots are in Los Angeles. So is the film industry’s – and that’s no coincidence. When we founded MUD in 1997, we had a vision: to create a school for make-up artists, by make-up artists. Here, students can gain expertise in the varying aspects of make-up artistry from a team of educators who are also industry professionals.

Located in downtown Burbank, MUD’s Los Angeles Campus is near some of the biggest production studios in the world. Our students can choose from four comprehensive make-up programs or individual courses, learning the basics of beauty, character, or special make-up effects for film, television, fashion, and retail. They’ll also get access to career advice, a robust alumni network, and perspectives from working make-up artists, who share their insights about the latest innovations in the craft.

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.

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.
