Meet LMI Founder Lisette Waugh
Over her 28-year career, Lisette Waugh was known for her diverse repertoire of techniques and exquisite fashion instinct. She began her career working in trunk shows with elite designers and collaborating with celebrity hairstylists.
She started to grow her brand by catering to the local socialites and high society in Las Vegas and world-famous celebrities. Fashion magazines, television, and print media including Vogue, Shape, and Luxury have featured her work.
Her advice to makeup artists would be to “follow your passion first of all, and put in the work and don’t get discouraged. If you love something enough, you will put in the time and you will let it organically evolve.”
Pursue Your Passion at L Makeup Institute
The main reason Lisette started L Makeup Institute was to create an environment to support those like her who want to pursue their passion for becoming makeup artists. Even now, you may be able to learn some basic makeup artistry or special effects tricks as part of a cosmetology program by attending a local makeup workshop or watching YouTube tutorials. But those only scratch the surface of what you need to know to have a successful career as a makeup artist.
