Make-up Designory

An educated approach to make-up!

A school by make-up artists, for make-up artists.

Make-Up Designory was founded in 1997 by a team of professional make-up artists who wanted to establish a center for higher learning in the field of make-up education.

Today, our school has grown from a two-classroom, 800 square-foot location in Toluca Lake, California to two thriving Campuses in Los Angeles and New York – and there’s still more to come.

MUD is taking our version of excellence in make-up education further, constantly expanding our reach with MUD Partner and MUD Studio locations around the world.

At Make-Up Designory (MUD) we provide students from around the world with a rigorous education in the intricacies of professional make-up artistry for film, television, fashion, theatre, and retail.

For the first time ever, MUD is offering online education for students and make-up artists that allows you to choose what classes you take.

If you are looking to expand the services you offer in your salon or simply would like to expand your knowledge of make-up that can help you to look better, we have the classes to help you.

Make-up Designory has been the global leader in education for make-up artistry because we know what it takes to be successful as an artist. MUD is well known for the quality of the education at it's campuses around the world. Taking a class online will introduce you to the world of MUD and in many cases can be stepping stone to one of our Studios, Partner Schools, or to our Main Campuses.
