Programs Offered

Everything we offer in Las Vegas is available at our new Texas location!

We have two programs to choose from: the first covers the foundations you need to become a makeup artist. Master the art of traditional beauty makeup for special events, and complete the look with intricate hairstyles your clients will love as part of our hairstyling for the makeup artist course. Finally, round off your education with our comprehensive airbrush and body painting techniques, where you can create stunning fantasy, high fashion, or other creative looks you’re passionate about!

Our second program includes everything in our first program and an extra unit on special effects makeup. If your dream is to work in the movie or theatre industry, our special effects course is a must. We teach everything you need to create complex works with prosthetics and painting techniques that look shockingly realistic.

Both of our programs are accredited, which means you can be confident in the quality of your education.

About Our Texas Location

You can find L Makeup Institute right in the center of Southlake, central to Dallas, Fort Worth, and Planto. It could be the right fit for you if you want to find a career in the big city!

Our specialized equipment creates the perfect learning environment, where you can learn while using tools licensed makeup artists use. We have custom-made ovens to help bake moisture out of mold and prepare foam latex, essential for hyper-realistic special effects makeup, centralized air for plug and spray airbrushing and body painting, and other state-of-the-art equipment to create a unique and immersive learning experience.

Our open spaces, metallic epoxy concrete floors, and well-lit areas create an atmosphere that our students love. Trying to create the right lighting for your art? With our professionally designed lighting, it makes it that much easier to match skin-tone and pick the right colors for your makeup looks.

The culture and environment of our school is crucial. Learn in one of nine classrooms, create artistic looks in the SFX lab, perform a professional photoshoot in our photography studio, and so much more! Plus, you can use materials to further your learning in our library or take a bit of time to relax in our student lounge when you’re not in class.

At L Makeup Institute, our students start working directly with products from day one.
