Las Vegas

Ready to make the world a beautiful place?

L Makeup Institute opened in 2010 as the first of its kind makeup school in Las Vegas to offer an in-depth curriculum developed specifically for students pursuing a career in the makeup and special effects industries. Many dream of becoming professional makeup artists; with locations in both Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dallas Fort Worth, Texas, L Makeup Institute fulfills that need by preparing our graduates to work not only for the beauty and bridal industries but also for the entertainment, salon, fashion, movies, theatrical, production and retail cosmetics industries.

As a direct result of founder Lissette Waugh’s determined efforts, makeup artistry is recognized as a stand-alone industry in Nevada with endless career opportunities. This means our students can study makeup artistry and SFX makeup exclusively and work professionally without completing unrelated cosmetology courses or licensing requirements.

Preparing the next generation of MUA’s since 2010.

“This school is awesome! Everyone who works here is here for the students.” – Robert R
