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.
When you study at MUD you can immerse yourself in the hubs of the beauty, fashion, film, and television worlds at thriving centers for the make-up artisan industry. Choose from comprehensive make-up programs designed to give students a foundation in their areas of interest, or hone your skills with a continuing education course. Working artists, students and graduates are encouraged to use these facilities as a resource – whether to conduct research in our Learning Resource Center, attend a free Saturday workshop or hear a talk from one of our Industry Speaks featured artists.
MUD regularly hosts Open Houses at our Los Angeles Campus. Guests can visit the Campus and cosmetic store, meet with administrative staff and enjoy demos ranging from beauty to special make-up effects looks from talented artists.

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!
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 loved everything about it! As an international student, I highly recommend it!
