A school by makeup artists,
for makeup artists.
This was the dream that started it all. Founded by accomplished professional make-up artisans in 1997, Make-up Designory (MUD) began and expanded into a rigorous academic environment that fosters creativity and experimentation.
With the humble beginnings of a two classroom, 800 square-foot location in North Hollywood, California, MUD started out with course offerings in beauty make-up, character make-up, and special make-up effects. The intimate courses have now grown into four comprehensive make-up programs, individual courses, and workshops within two main campuses in Los Angeles and New York. MUD has also expanded globally offering Professional Courses here in the Philippines as well as in Europe, South Africa, Mexico, South America, and across the United States.
Our vision for the MUD Studio Manila is to be the Philippines and South East Asia's premiere international school for makeup as a career and profession.
Through MUD USA’s rigorous education methods in the intricacies of professional make-up artistry for film, television, fashion, theatre and retail, we will transform creativity and passion into a career.
