Level II MUD Makeup Artist Certification
Offered at MUD Campuses in New York and Los Angeles
After completing Level I, the student may progress into more advanced areas of make-up by enrolling in a MUD Campus in New York or Los Angeles for Level II. At this level, students will be exposed to areas of fashion, print, film, television and bridal make-up applications. Students will learn the latest trends and techniques including airbrush makeup, bridal makeup, studio makeup and high fashion makeup. Graduates of Level II will have the opportunity to move on to Level III MUD Artist Certification including Essentials of Hair and Portfolio Development.
Airbrushing has become one of the premier ways of applying make- up. In this course, the airbrush is de-mystified. Students are shown how to properly care for and maintain it. In addition, students will study the techniques necessary to do beautiful, flawless beauty make-up. Learn the techniques that are being required by the major studios, as well as demanding clients.
With a focus on the lucrative world of weddings, the Bridal Make-up Artistry Course takes the student from consultation to the creation of a bride’s perfect look. The Bridal Course begins with the idea that a successful wedding make-up application starts with a clear plan for the bride and her family. From there, students learn both business and additional make-up techniques required to be successful in the bridal business.
With the dramatic increase of new technology in video production for internet and cable broadcast, production can be found in all markets worldwide. Unique considerations are required for applying make-up for these types of media. In the Studio Make-up Course, students learn to apply camera-ready make-ups for everything from a natural to a full glamour look.
High Fashion MAKE-UP Trends
Learn the techniques employed by professional make-up artists working in advertising and editorial. In this course, students will learn how to work on set, design make-ups that can be used in fashion or editorial, and learn what a professional photographer requires
to create imagery that stands out from the rest. Students will also develop an eye for make-up and learn what to look out for in their own pictures.
Level III MUD Makeup ARTIST Certification
All cosmetology students will receive a Level I Make-up Artist Certification at no additional cost, with the option for further MUD Certifications upon graduation. Beauty Essentials was written as an introduction to beauty make-up. In this intensive 84-hour course, students learn how to apply beauty make-up and the theory behind it. These first 84-hours should be viewed as the bare minimum to learn beauty make-up.
Essentials of hair
This course concentrates on the basic fundamentals of hairstyling, from simple blow-drying techniques to creating elaborate hairstyles. Students will learn to create modern styles – as well as edgy and cre- ative hair designs – using hot tools and roller sets. This course incor- porates daily projects and skill-building sessions to encourage learning by practice. As part of this course, students are required to complete hair and make-up projects, which relate to on-the-job experience.
Students are pushed to their creative limits in this high paced course. This course recreates the real world environment in which students will be working. We will guide the student as they design and create looks for multiple photo-shoots. Students will work with professional models and photographers to create a professional quality portfolio.
