School History:

The L Makeup Institute, borne of a love of the craft of makeup artistry, was founded in 2010 by accomplished professional makeup artist Lissette Waugh. The L Makeup Institute is the first of its kind in Las Vegas focused exclusively on the art and science of makeup artistry. Until the L Makeup Institute, there were no dedicated makeup schools in Las Vegas where aspiring makeup and special effects artists could study in-depth curriculum developed specifically for the makeup artist.

Notes/School Information:

Culture
The L Makeup Institute culture puts students first in an intimate environment designed to encourage more student-teacher interaction. By design, we have a very low student to teacher ratio with a maximum of one teacher per every fourteen students and 100% of classes have 20 or fewer students, so that our educators can provide the personalized one-on-one attention to ensure that each student discovers and develops their own unique style and artistic talent. The L Makeup Institute embraces a culture of self-responsibility and empowerment. To do this, we establish a classroom environment of respect, collaboration and creative expression. We believe that the value of individualized, one-on-one instruction, which is only possible with a low student-to-instructor ratio, is at the heart of our mission to lead each of our students to a creative and satisfying career.

Campus Life
Situated in Tivoli Village in the heart of Summerlin, L Makeup Institute is conveniently located at 440 s. Rampart Blvd. B130, Las Vegas, NV 89145. The L Makeup Institute blends the "Glitz and Glamour" of the world's most exciting city with a taste of the local life. Our beautiful setting carries with it the charm and character of a true Italian village with beautiful walkways, gathering spaces, quaint shops and cafes - all in a pleasant outdoor atmosphere.

The L Makeup Institute offers a stylish atmosphere with all the accoutrements and seriousness of a top-notch educational facility. The institute is a perfect combination of a mid-century, modern design merged with a chic, big-city hipness - well lit, open spaces; exposed, vaulted ceilings; glitter infused concrete floors; glass walls; electrical drops; and gold, gold, and more gold -- all brought artfully together with warm, natural wood floors and treatments. The highly imaginative and visually stunning 11,000-square foot campus, includes four separate training areas, a student and teacher lounge, a photography studio, professionally designed lighting throughout with a 90+ CRI for perfect skin tone matching and technical applications. The clean, high-tech and beautiful campus houses every tool and lab equipment you'll need to succeed as a makeup or makeup effects artist. Ample student parking at street level, underground and valet rounds out the campus. Oh, and lest we forget to mention, we have a massive pro artist cosmetics store and glitter bar. Who says school can't be fun?!
