At the L Makeup Institute, our mission is to discover, educate, develop and place the best makeup artist and special makeup effects talent.
We accomplish the L Makeup Institute mission by delivering rigorous and relevant curriculum focused exclusively on the art and science of makeup artistry taught by experts in their field of study. Our goal is to build our students confidence and reinforce skills necessary to work in the many makeup and makeup effects industries: film, television, fashion, freelance, and retail cosmetics. Whether a student chooses the delicacy of beauty makeup or the intricacies of prosthetics, students are supported and encouraged, but challenged to reach their full artistic potential.
The L Makeup Institute provides everything required to educate and train professional makeup artists at every level of their journey including individual makeup stations, extensive library and resource center, professionally lit photography studio, hand selected makeup products and materials, professional educators, support staff, and fundamentally solid curriculum.
Educate & Develop Makeup Talent
Although no previous formal makeup training or experience is required, students should exhibit a strong commitment to makeup artistry and desire a career as a professional makeup artist. Some ideal characteristics of the L Makeup Institute student are: being artistically inspired with a strong creative intuition, self-motivation and drive to succeed; passion to learn; experience or interest in the beauty industry, including such areas as cosmetic retail or any other related industries; background in fine arts, painting, drawing, sculpting, photography and/or other related fields; a love of makeup and experience in applying makeup on themselves or others.
As the L Makeup Institute continues to educate and develop makeup talent and remain at the forefront of makeup artistry education it will continue to serve as a venue to educate and train professional makeup artists and creative space of collaboration, support and inspiration for today’s makeup artists, because we know those who meet together at our institute today are the professionals who will be working together in the future.
