About

L Makeup Institute, borne of a love of the craft of makeup artistry, was founded in 2010 by accomplished professional makeup artist Lissette Waugh. Since opening, the L Makeup Institute has developed a national presence with students traveling from all over the country to attend makeup school at our Las Vegas, NV, or Dallas – Fort Worth, TX campuses. Why? There are 1000’s of Cosmetology Schools, but only a few Makeup Artistry Schools in the US that offer hands-on accredited programs that are a deep study of all styles of makeup artistry. Consisting of beauty makeup and its evolution, on-set hair styling, body painting, airbrush makeup, character makeup, and special effects (FX) makeup, our programs focus exclusively on the art and science of makeup artistry. Whether a student chooses the delicacy of beauty makeup, the bold and dramatic look of airbrush makeup and body painting, or the intricacies of prosthetics, L Makeup Institute continues to focus on creating the professionals of tomorrow while strengthening the skills of today’s working makeup artist. A school for those who want to pursue their passion for makeup artistry.
