About MUD Make-Up Designory
From its humble beginnings, Make-up Designory has grown to become the largest educational system exclusively focused on make-up artist training. A strict adherence to educational standards, curriculum development and teacher training has helped to create a standard form of make-up education that can be found in classrooms around the world. The same curriculum, high standards and MUD-certified teachers can be found in MUD’s main campuses in New York and Los Angeles, through their network of partner schools operating in the United States or internationally in MUD Studios.
MUD Studio provides a perfect mix between classroom and retail. Each MUD Studio features a modern showroom where the right MUD product can be found for every occasion and customer type. With every product in MUD Studio comes the knowledge of a MUD Make-up Artist. Dedication to a knowledge-based product line is essential to the MUD Studio experience. According to Tate Holland, MUD CEO, “We don’t want to do just makeovers in our stores; we want each make-up application to become an individual make-up class.” Beyond individual tutoring sessions, the store also hosts a number of smaller workshops that are geared to the needs of the everyday woman and the make-up enthusiast alike.
In the United States, Mud has partnered with a number of beauty schools in local markets to deliver Mud Studio courses. By partnering with existing schools, Mud has been able to expand its mission of providing high quality make-up education in markets that were previously under served. Teachers at Mud Partner Schools go through the same training as those that teach at Mud Studios and students benefit by joining an international network of make-up professionals.
In the classroom aspiring make-up artists and other beauty professionals are taught the fundamentals of make-up application and the theory necessary to adapt make-up techniques to differing conditions – from the retail floor to a film set to a bride’s special day. Courses are derived from the same curriculum that can be found at Make-up Designory’s main campuses, but are divided in such a way as to allow the student to progress through the various subjects at their own pace. The courses are divided into two levels: Level I is comprised of Beauty Essentials, and the completion of this course allows the student to move on to the classes that comprise Level II, which include classes in Airbrush Make-up, Studio Make-up, High Fashion Make-up Trends, and Bridal Make-up. One of the unique features of the program is that students are able to not only choose courses that they feel will benefit them, but to take courses at different Studios in varying cities. While the courses remain the same at each MUD Studio, Partner School or Main Campus, traveling to different MUD locations allows the student to add culture and life experiences to their make-up education and artistic expression.
