Library and Photography Studio
The L Makeup Institute houses a professionally-lit photography studio and equipment on its premises available for photographing student work. Photos are available during a student’s attendance and may be downloaded or copied for promotional and personal use — this is a fantastic way to showcase your developing talents and to turn your education into a viable profession by starting out with your portfolio.
The L Makeup Institute provides all students and graduates with access to a comprehensive library and resource center consisting of textbooks, periodicals, and movies related to the field of makeup artistry. Students are encouraged to use the library to enhance their classroom learning of makeup artistry and special makeup effects. The library is open during school hours from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm Monday through Friday, and materials can be checked out for one-week periods.
In addition to physical resources, the library is also equipped with computer workstations with internet access, as well as printing and copying. Each workstation has the Microsoft Office Suite and shared storage drives, thereby allowing timely and convenient access to student photos and the ability to reproduce images or source materials and inspiration for classroom assignments.
