Our Mission


Legends Makeup Academy – honoring the makeup legends of the past, introducing students to the legends of today, and forging the legends of tomorrow. We are the next evolution in film and television makeup education.

LMA aims to provide the highest level of makeup instruction to aspiring and working makeup artists alike. We focus on in-person hands-on training in our classrooms, utilizing the most up-to-date materials, technology and techniques taught by some of the most renowned artists in their field.

We keep our classroom capacity limited in size which allows for the optimal teacher to student ratio. We have portfolio review for our intermediate and advanced classes, ensuring that all students can study in an environment that fosters education and respect. We focus on ethics and business in our classes, passing down the torch of decades of knowledge of proper interaction and preparation with production, clients and fellow artists.
