Our Graduates are Making the World a More Beautiful Place.

L Makeup Institute is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students and issue I-20 documentation for M-1 visas only for students who are enrolled at L Makeup Institute, can only be provided for the period of time during which the student is registered at LMI, and does not authorize external work experience.

Make-up artistry is a study in the arts; however, minimal English language proficiency is required. Proficiency is evidenced by a U.S. High School Diploma, GED or the equivalent in a country where English is a primary language. For students who completed secondary school in a country where English is not a primary language, evidence of the successful completion of a secondary school- level English course or a minimum TOEFL score of 50 will be required.

Admissions Advisors are available as a resource for international students, and can help address any concern related to international study, including visa and passport questions, transferring to and from other schools, utilizing public transportation, housing options, and information on the surrounding community. It is important to note that the visa required to visit the United States is different from the visa required to attend a vocational school.
