Brings Unique Skills to a Fascinating World of Make-Up Artistry

NY Campus Reaches New Heights

MUD schools

The bi-coastal main campuses in Los Angeles and New York as well

as the various MUD Studios around the world, give potential artists

the experience of a lifetime by training under licensed instructors with

professional expertise in film, television and fashion. Through this

training, students learn to develop their own unique style, whether it be

within the intricacies of prosthetics or the delicacy of beauty make-up.

Accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Career

Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), MUD main campuses

are located in the heart of the entertainment and fashion

capitals. The LA campus can be found in downtown

of Burbank, California, home of some of the biggest

production studios in the world, while the New York campus is located

amidst the bustling area of designer boutiques of New York. MUD

campuses are each licensed by their respective states. In 2003 MUD’s

Los Angeles campus received accreditation from the Accrediting

commission for Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) and was

recognized by ACCSC as a School of Distinction. The Los Angeles

campus has since received two 5-year terms of accreditation. The

ACCSC has also recognized the school as a School of

Merit in 2008 and a School of Excellence in 2013.

The 2005 opening of the New York campus lead

to accreditation from ACCSC in 2007 and was

recognized as a 2009 School of Distinction.

Each year, Make-Up Designory (MUD) schools train hundreds of students from

around the globe in a variety of make-up specialties. From day one, students are

immersed in the fundamentals of make-up artistry with aspirations of working in

the fashion, entertainment or retail cosmetics industries.

The New York MUD campus is on

its way to the top – or at least to

the 15th floor. The school’s new

home address at 65 Broadway

sits within the original American

Express Building.

Recently securing the renovated

space about a mile and a half from

the current site, the new school

space will allow accommodations

for future growth including 2

additional classrooms and a host

of amenities. The spacious special

effects classroom includes about

954 square feet of workspace for

up to 26 students. The entire 15th

floor will incase the school’s learning

space with separate lounges for

students and teachers and a beautiful

view of the city for inspiration.

In addition to the expansion,

students will enjoy the upgraded

technology enhancements and for

easy access, the campus store will

be conveniently located within the

center of the campus.

Renovations are underway and while

the move will officially take place

around early summer, classes will

continue to resume as scheduled.

1. Life cast and forearms were

done in alginate. The alginate casts were removed and filled with White Hydrocal Plaster.

2. The front half of the upper torso

cast was molded in plaster bandages. The front half of the cast was sectioned into six pieces making it easier to create the fiberglass copy of the body.

3. The completed fiberglass copy

of the actor’s body was created by laying fiberglass and epoxy resin into each section of the mold. Front and back sections were joined together working through the openings in the arm and torso sections on the front of the mold.

4. The muscle suit was sculpted on

the actor’s fiberglass body mold in Water base WED clay.

5. The muscle suit sculpture was

molded in silicone to create a fiberglass copy of the muscles needed to sculpt the armor. After the silicone mold was removed the muscle suit sculpture was molded again in fiberglass.

6. The finished copy of the muscle suit

sculpture ready to sculpt the armor on.

Creating Exor was an amazing opportunity for our graduate

team. The size and scope of this project really gave our grads

the experience of making a character for film or television. Exor

was a labor of love and the final product was everything we had

planned and more.

This character was complex for a number of reasons. To start,

the head was a silicone gel filled appliance, the muscle suite

was foam latex, the armor was latex and poly foam and the

hands were again silicone gel filled appliances. All of these

products had to work seamlessly together to make the creature

come to life. I decided to make the armor as a separate element

from the muscle suit as you would for a movie character. This

required 2 complete upper torso sculptures and 3 upper torso

molds. The teeth for the character were designed to sit outside

the performer’s mouth in front of his lips. This required a very

special set of dentures constructed by Thad Whitley owner of

Dental Distortions. The hands for the character were 4 finger

designs with 9 inch fingers and a thumb on both sides. This

design required self-contained mechanical hands worn by the

performer that had mechanisms built into the elongated fingers

that bent the upper finger joints as the lower joints moved. In

addition a small cable and additional joint mechanisms were

used to move the extra thumb on the other side of the hand.

The costume for the design was also a challenge. The skirt

alone had over 150 separate panels and elements. The last part

of complexity was the custom made electronic lighting system

that was embedded in the armor. A huge thank you goes out

to Michael Westmore Jr., Michael literally created circuit boards

and custom wireless control boards just for this project. The 4

different light arrays in the armor each had 20 LED lights built

in to them. These light arrays were controlled wirelessly on the

spot to create dozens of colors and lighting sequences. Lastly I

would like to thank Alex Crawford, our talented performer, who

brought the character to life.

I would like to thank our MUD instructor Karrieann Sillay Heisner

for her dedication and artistry in helping to make this character

a reality. I would also like to thank our MUD graduates Eugenia

Fernandez, Ashley Tyne, Tamika Clark, and Jocelyn Alcazar

who volunteered their time to help with all stages of this project.

7. The armor sculpture was

completed on the fiberglass mold. A fiberglass mold was made of the completed sculpture.

13. The fingers of the character were almost 9 inches long.

A fiberglass glove that the actor wore was fabricated with mechanical linkages. The actor would operate the lower joints of the fingers and the linkages would in turn bend the upper finger joints. A cable and linkage was also used to move the thumb on the other side of the hand.

8. Model parts and tubing were used

to create detail in the sculpture.

14. Several test fittings were

required to make sure the hand mechanics worked properly.

9. The hand sculptures were

sculpted in oil based clay. There are 2 of the actor’s fingers in the 2 center fingers. Mechanical parts were fabricated to move the long fingers and the thumbs on the other side of the hands.

15. The foam latex body suit was painted with Rubber

Cement Paint, PAX paint and alcohol paints for fine detail.

16. The silicone gel filled head appliance was

painted with a silicone paint system and alcohol paints for fine detail.

10. Detail of the palm of the

hand sculpture.

11. The sculpture for the head was

done in oil base clay. A 3 section fiberglass mold was made of the head.

12. Special dentures with

teeth that fit over the lips were created for the character.

MUD Alumni on SyFy’s Reality Series Face Off

his year Make-Up Designory’s Alumni Nicholas Gonzalez (MUD LA), Cat Paschen

(MUD LA) and Bethany Serpico (MUD NY) were selected to compete amongst

11 other contestants on SyFy’s television reality show, Face Off. Face Off is a

competition/elimination series that explores the world of special make-up effects

artists. Each episode presents the contestants with a theme and a challenge to create

extraordinary pieces of work in a very limited timeframe. Actress McKenzie Westmore, of the

Westmore family dynasty whose name is synonymous with the make-up effects field, hosts

the reality series. The panel of judges included some of SFX world’s most celebrated figures—

multiple Academy-Award winner Ve Neill (The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean,)

industry veteran Glenn Hetrick (CSI: New York, Heroes, Legion) and creature designer Neville

Page (Avatar, Prometheus). World-renowned Hollywood make-up artist Michael Westmore

(Star Trek) serves as the contestant mentor.

To celebrate the casting of our Alumni, Make-Up Designory hosted a live viewing party of

Face Off’s season premier. Guests included MUD’s CEO Tate Holland, Director of Education

Paul Thompson, MUD LA’s school Director Gil Romero, VP Karl Zundel along with Niko, Cat,

school instructors, current students, friends and family. All were there to show their support

for the MUD grads, the make-up artist community and fellow cast members.

We asked Gil Romero, School Director for MUD Los Angeles what he thought of the

opportunity Face Off gives MUD students and graduates:

“Face Off is the perfect platform to have our graduates demonstrate their developing talents.

It allows them to showcase not only to industry professionals, but to everyone fascinated

by the make-up effects world. Bethany, Cat and Niko are highly motivated and extremely

creative. Our mission as a school is to give them the training, knowledge and support to

succeed in this industry. We are very proud of each of our students and graduates, and the

hard work they put in to build a fulfilling career.”

Without the education and support I received from Make-Up Designory I would never have made it on the show.

Page 7: MUD newspaper spring summer 2014

We then asked Cat and Niko to give us some insight into their experience.

What was your overall Face Off experience like?

Cat: Over all, it was an amazing, once in a life time kind of experience. I still cannot believe

that it all happened. Even though it was the most stressful and hardest challenge I have

faced, I still feel lucky to have been a part of such an amazing show and to have met such

an amazing group of people.

Niko: It was great, I really enjoyed every moment of it. I got to meet a lot of great people

and had the chance to create things I never imagined I could do. This was one of the best

experiences of my life, I would definitely do it again.

What is your advice to aspiring contestants and, or make-up artists?

Cat: My advice to any aspiring make-up artist or contestants is: you can achieve your

dream, no matter what it is, as long as you work hard for it. I do believe that hard work pays

off in the end and I am living proof of that. Practice, research and learn as much as you can

to reach your goals.

Niko: If you really want to do this work hard, learn from your mistakes and always practice

to become a well-rounded make-up artist. It takes discipline to be successful.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Cat: Without the education and support I received from Make-Up Designory I would never

have made it on the show. MUD really helped to prepare me for the challenges we faced.

Niko: Having a great education from MUD really helped me in this industry. I didn’t realize

I had this talent inside of me and that I would love make-up so much until I followed my

dream, moved to LA and attended MUD.

Hollywood of the Middle EastMake-Up Designory has finally launched in Egypt, the capital for the vast majority of the

Arab world’s early movies. Between the 1930s and the 1960s, the ‘Hollywood of the Middle

East’ Arabic film industry operating out of Cairo was at its height: it was the ‘Golden Age’ of

cinema. It produced hundreds of black & white comedies, melodramas and romances, that

are still enjoyed and watched over and over again by generations old and new.

MUD Studio Cairo was launched by Mahmound Morshed,

renowned make-up artist with over 20 years of experience

in the industry of make-up artistry. His passion for make-

up was inherited from his grandfather Ramadan Imam, one

of the founders of make-up artistry in Egypt. Morshed is

a strong believer of the brand and was introduced to it by

coincidence on a work trip to Slovenia. He instantly fell in

love with the quality of products and since then he has never

used anything except MUD. What encouraged Morshed to

open a MUD Studio in Egypt was not only the quality of MUD

as a make-up brand, but also the quality of education that

MUD offers. MUD’s highly regarded educational curriculum is being offered to Egypt’s

make-up enthusiasts and industry professionals.

For the last 10 years, Morshed has been the key make-up artist of more than 25 movies, 28

TV series, 6 broadcasting channels aired all over the world, along with TV commercials and

some of the biggest fashion events in Egypt, not to mention the bridal industry. By his side,

Ragaa Ghazi, with over 10 years of international experience

in the USA has brought to the school the latest trends of the

make-up industry. Ragaa is a licensed cosmetologist from

Los Angeles California, with the passion for make-up and

hair. Ragaa’s background varies from bridal make-up to injury,

special effects such as aging and prosthetic make-up.

Today, becoming a professional make-up artist in Egypt, with

an international certification is simple. MUD Studio Cairo is

located at 18, Goal Gamal St. from Gama’at El Dowal St.,

2nd Floor.

New Make-up Approach in Ukraine

What do most Europeans know about Ukraine? “It is somewhere, not far from Russia.”

Ukraine – one of the largest European countries, occupies more than 600,000 square

kilometers and is the second largest country in Europe with over 45 million residents.

Full of a variety of talent in art, science and sports, Ukrainians have changed the world’s

view of the country that is often hard to locate without a map. Ukraine’s history is full of

dramatic and tragic events, although not long ago, they began writing a different story

on their own of victory and triumph. But as all artists know, beauty and art can never be

stopped. The idea of the US-born Make-Up Designory has grown abroad to a number of

countries and continents including the Ukraine.

Located within the historical center of

Kharkov, the first capital of Ukraine,

the retail location that provides a

variety of MUD products is just two

steps from the Freedom Square – the

largest square in Europe.

Working closely with a talented MUD Europe

team, instructors conducted several workshops

that have peaked the interest of Ukrainian make-

up artists and potential new artists.

The first location to provide make-up artistry

classes, MUD has given Ukrainians the

opportunity to attend training programs geared

for future make-up artists – a career that

provides lots of opportunities to work with film

stars and celebrities worldwide.

Courses in the Ukraine give a cross-cultural vibe

of ideas as the instructors conduct seminars in

different countries all over the world. Courses and seminars will be hosted by MUD artists

within the upcoming year so that make-up artists will have the opportunity to network and

collaborate on new ideas from other artists from around the world.

The geographical location

of the Kharkov makes it

convenient for the studio to

work with make-up artists

from surrounding countries.

In the near future, MUD

Ukraine plans to hold several

international seminars to

spread the art of beauty.

We are the real dealPaul Thompson Director of Education

Tell us more about your typical day. Every day is a little different from the next; I am traveling a lot right now. I work very closely

with our educational partners to ensure MUD’s core philosophies and principles are followed. I also spend time talking with our teachers and different partners across the world and in the US making sure they are supported and have what they need from us. I’m currently in the process developing curriculum, providing training for new teachers and producing educational videos and content for use online by our faculty and students. And on the top of that, I’m rewriting our Beauty textbook.

Is the day long enough for all the projects you run? No, not at all. I try to prioritize my projects every day. With so many things happening at once,

I plan certain times for different things. For example, I try to write for the first two hours of the morning. Whether it is curriculum or the textbook, I need to make sure I allocate time each day.

So, you have an agenda every day to organize tasks that are waiting for you? (smile) I wake up in the morning and I manage a list of all the big, big things I need to get

done and from there I try to prioritize. I try to tackle as many of them as possible. The funny thing about today and technology is that we are so connected—you plan your day and till the end of your day you’re being stretched. It may be that a person in a classroom 3000 miles away is having a problem, so I stop what I’m doing and start resolving the issue.

Do you have assistants that can relieve you? I do have help; just not an assistant per se. I did have an assistant once, she was brilliant,

highly motivated and I miss her badly. The challenge is that my work is very dynamic and involves a lot of faculty training for our partners around the world. The training that we do is somewhat unique with each partner. We custom tailor each certification course to meet the requirements of the school and the faculty members we are training. Currently, MUD Los Angeles instructors Marianne Toccalino and David Langford have been very helpful with this process. Rita Botelho is our Director of Operations for all of our school partners. She has taken on so much; she has really helped clear my plate so I can focus. Our company is growing so quickly that I am relying more and more on the team of people around me.

What makes you happy? I love what I do, I love to teach. I marry the love of teaching with the passions in my life,

make-up and art.

Do you feel completely fulfilled? Oh, completely. I feel very lucky to do what I do. I often say you can’t do this for the money,

you have to do it for the love, money will come. If you put your heart, your soul into this, it will just come. That passion has evolved for me. I started teaching early on in my career in different schools. I taught in UCLA for a while, I taught in couple of other make-up schools, and also in seminars. I loved it so much that I really grew with it.

So, you find your pleasure in work? Yes for sure, I am a workaholic. I’m not a workaholic because I hate it.

Do you have free time? Yes I do, I absolutely do. I probably should take some time off here and there more often.

I really love my family; I enjoy spending time with them, so when I have that free time I take full advantage of it. In addition, you need down time to stay creative in this industry and to stay creative as a teacher, you have to be a fan of what you’re teaching. I’m a fan of movies and TV shows, I’m a fan of make-up in general. I just think make-up is cool, and I’m a fan of teaching as well. Nothing excites me more than seeing someone teach a class really well!

Is that an achievement for you, when students do well? Yes, you’re a good teacher when you consider your accomplishments to be a student’s success.

When a student succeeds, it’s a strange feeling, you feel like a proud parent. It’s a bit of an addictive feeling. I have two daughters and I’m proud of both of them, I love them, every day they make me proud –it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. These are just some of the rewards of being a parent. But as a teacher, you get to feel this every so often, so every time you hear a student does extremely well, or does something great, or even just accomplishes something great in the classroom, you get this proud feeling. They really did it! And they did it because of the hard work they put in and how you guided them and how you inspired them. It is an amazing experience. So I think that’s also why people get into teaching. It’s because this feeling is addictive, you want to feel that you are contributing to a greater good in some way. My greater good is making make-up artists, so make-up artists can make prettier people and we have pretty people all over the world (laughs). But, on a side note, we’re doing something else as teachers at Make-up Designory. We are helping people achieve their dreams. We are helping them achieve something they didn’t know was entirely possible. And we’re guiding them to a place that, without us, they may never ever achieve. And that right there is… that’s the real reward.

Looking back over the years, was there ever a moment when you felt like “I should have done that”?

Yeah, all the time actually, yesterday I shouldn’t have stayed up till 3 o’clock in the morning. We grow when we make mistakes. Failing and making mistakes are just learning events in life.

As a make-up artist I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career. One of the things we teach faculty members of MUD is that we want them to live by certain standards. These standards are the qualities and traits of great teachers. I’ve studied great teachers, but a lot came from learning from mistakes I made early on in my career. When I followed the standards I was creating, I saw better results.

What advice would you give young Paul? I thought about this a little while ago. The best advice that I would give to a young version

of me is “be careful of being too trusting” and “be cautious”. Early on in my career I was too trusting with everyone.

If you were completely unleashed, would you recognize that person? I am that unleashed person right now. I throw so much energy and passion into what

I do; it is hard to turn it off. I am extremely positive and truly believe we can achieve anything we set our mind too. So when I go into a classroom, I am passionate and full of energy. It is not enough for me to simply teach the student, the student must learn. So I give each student everything I have to help them learn. By the end of the day you find yourself mentally and emotionally spent. You go home and find yourself in front of the TV, because you don’t want to talk to anybody else, you gave it all. So that’s kinda how I am. When I’m in that environment, when I’m in the moment, I’m giving them my all. I want it to be great. I don’t have all the answers to make MUD huge, but I know where my strengths are, so I push very hard in those areas to make the company better. So, with all of our schools around the world that are teaching our curriculum, I make sure those teachers share my passion and philosophy. I encourage them to throw all of their energy and passion into it and love what they do. I want all of our students to benefit from this level of effort and attention. Basically I ask the same thing from our teachers that I ask of myself.

In all the years that you’ve taught and witnessed students do well in the business, have you seen people change because of their success?

I do know a lot of famous make-up artists that are graduates of MUD. But, there really isn’t a lot of “fame” in make-up, just great work. When I see students that are really successful, I see happiness, more than I see ego. They tend to remember where they came from and the love of what they are doing.

I think the best people in any type of work don’t have big egos. I have run into the biggest names and they were the ones that were just so gracious and so wonderful.

Why do some make-up artists seem so snooty?I honestly think it boils down to insecurities. A good friend of mine, his name is Beto

Franca, is probably the most prolific MUA in Brazil. The work he does is spot on, gorgeous, just phenomenal make-up work.

He is the most humble, nicest person. He talks about his make-up like it’s just his work. When he came to study special make-up effects with us, his interaction with the students was not “I am a make-up artist and I’ve been in this business for 30 years and I’m fantastic,” it was “oh my gosh, what project are you working on; oh, what’s happening over here...” He was so excited about what everyone was doing in that class, so curious and down to earth and willing to help the students. That’s what I see when I see a very secure MUA. They have nothing to prove, nothing to go on about.

Do you learn from your students?Of course. In the classroom you learn from every single mistake a student makes. And

sometimes there are such crazy mistakes, that you are like “oh my god, I could use this for something else” or, “I have never ever seen that happen in person, ever.” So, often times I am experiencing things that would take me a lifetime to learn. As they work and as they grow as artists they start to bring great ideas to the table. They start to do things that maybe we had never thought of.

Are you dreaming of doing make-up on a face you haven’t done yet? And who would that be?

No, not really. I love working with people and most of my favorite faces are my favorite because they were nice people. I still do make-up, even though it’s not in the film industry anymore. My focus has turned to education and creating the single best educational experience for students. Don’t get me wrong, I still do a lot of different types of make-up; I just now do it for students and faculty members. In the film business you are always doing make-up that somebody else wants. Now, I get to do whatever make-up I want to do—I create my own guidelines and that’s kind of cool.

What is the difference between MUAs from the time you started and today’s artist? Do you see a difference?

What I am seeing now is that there is a broader respect for make-up artists as a whole. It used to be, if you worked in film or television, you were a respected make-up artist. All the other fields that used make-up, whether it be a salon or spa or even retail, didn’t really get that respect. But now, if you go to a make-up counter, especially a good line, you are getting advice from a make-up artist.

Cosmetic companies are seeing that there is a value in hiring a make-up artist, someone who can provide someone with a product and the real knowledge of how to use it. Recently, in


Page 11: MUD newspaper spring summer 2014

We are the real dealMexico, there has been a change in the way people view make-up artists. Before, there wasn’t even a term for the profession. It wasn’t art. But now, it is becoming a respected career. We have a little school in Guadalajara and our challenge there is to change the perspective of what a make-up artist is in Mexico.

What are the most important attributes every make-up artist should have? Well, the single most important thing that every make-up artist should possess is a good

attitude. If you don’t have good attitude it is going to be very hard to work in this industry. You need to be positive, have high energy and just be a team player.

It is so interesting that you started with advising about a good attitude before talent.

Oh yes! Talent is just another way to say well practiced. As a make-up artist, you need to practice your art all of the time. You need talent to get your foot in the door and to keep it there. But, if you have a bad attitude, talent is not enough. People will likely prefer to work with a talented person with a good attitude. So, I think you should learn your craft and focus on making sure you’re the best, but attitude – it will waste talent every time.

Paul Thompson, what is next for you?Right now, my immediate focus is getting our faculty members at all of our Studios and

Partner Schools trained to provide our students with that exceptional education and to inspire them to be great teachers and great artists. Also, to finish the Beauty textbook and workbook and create something that is a great representation of MUD. I’d like to see MUD reach a level that we haven’t seen yet. I am really looking into the future right now and I feel like we are at this point as a company, ready to take over the world.

Wow.I think that once we get to that size, all the other cosmetic companies are going to be

wondering what the heck happened because MUD is the real deal. We started with education and continue to provide the best make-up education in the world. We did not start with a product line and then build education around it. It has always been about teaching our students and helping them into the industry. And, we have grown very, very fast because of that effort.

Do you see yourself as a motivator for the MUD team and not just among your students?

Yeah, I really try. I mean, my role is mainly in education. But, I try to inspire whomever I am around. I believe so completely in our company and what we are trying to do. We also work with a lot of partners around the world and they need to share our vision and our goals. They need to be inspired, so I will often find myself in that role. Our faculty members, which I think there may be as many as 90 individuals between all of our schools, are the face of our company. Those teachers need to believe in this education as I believe in it. They need to inspire our students to do better, to risk more and to go to extraordinary lengths to succeed. And the only way this message is getting out is if I preach it every day.

We have so many great people in this company and I want to inspire them to do well and to do well for our customers. That, I think, is where my strengths lie.

Great. You have such a power—you’ve convinced me. I didn’t believe in this story about 2 years ago. But now, every day I believe more.

You know I want to spread the word to our partners; I want to spread the message of what MUD is and how you can grow your own business. Our founding philosophies revolve around treating the student as the customer. Create an exceptional educational experience for the student and treat them with a high level of respect. Treat the student fairly, honestly and truly care about the students’ success – and, the business will grow.

Ok, great. It was really a pleasure. Thank you. My pleasure, you’re welcome.

MUD is the real deal. We started with education and continue to provide the best make-up education in the world. We did not start with a product line and then build education around it. It has always been about teaching our students and helping them into the industry.

Sean Conklin

MUD Studios

You may recognize his face from the MUD video tutorials, but Sean Conklin is out to do more than show you how to get the smoky eye. As a MUD veteran and graduate, Sean has taken on a new role to help MUD clients get the product knowledge support they need.

So far, Sean has travelled to MUD locations both in the US and internationally to help

educate schools, distributors and artists on MUD’s full color cosmetic line. Traveling to

tradeshows and other events on the east and west coast, Guatemala, England and South

Africa, Sean looks forward to a busy year supporting MUD partners.

So what are some of the most talked about topics no matter where he is in the world?

“Everyone wants to know what the latest trends are, how to create the perfect smoky eye

and of course living in L.A., what celebrities I’ve worked on,” say Sean.

When he’s not traveling the world, spreading the word about the benefits of MUD products,

Sean can be found in the corporate office working with the Product Development Manager,

doing vigorous product testing while working with Sales and Marketing.

When it comes to success, Sean’s number one piece of advice for aspiring artists is to

stay professional and dress to impress. “First impressions are important. Know the latest

trends and know your competition. While on set, befriend everyone since you never know

who you may work with in the future and most importantly, smile!”

MUD partners are encouraged to contact their sales rep to request training at their site

with Sean for extensive training on MUD products for their students or staff.

The MUD Studio concept was conceived to bring Make-Up Designory’s highly regarded make-up education and professional brand of cosmetics to locations worldwide. The studio courses are built from the same curriculum that comprise the longer programs at MUD, but are broken up into smaller modules. These studio courses can be taken separately or combined, giving the student the option to transfer their education to one of MUD’s Main Campuses in New York or Los Angeles in the US.

As the MUD brand grows globally, MUD Studios are expanding to countries like Italy, Egypt,

Belgium, Slovenia, Nigeria, Guatemala and Mexico. These retail and classroom facilities bring

both the MUD retail and educational experiences together. From Studio Courses that certify

artists upon completion, to smaller workshops for the general consumer, MUD Studios are

founded on a great business model for any beauty industry professional. Studio owners are

provided with all the tools they need to provide the very best training in make-up artistry such

as kits, certificates, instructor training, online faculty support and curricula.

“Everyone melted when she sang!”HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Irena PredaIt was an honor to talk to the outstanding opera singer Irena Preda. With her career path already successful and rising, Irena is modestly aware that there is still a lot to be done. I was mesmerized with her story and very impressed with her expertise in linguistic expression as well as her remarkable sense for music of all genres.

The amazingly talented singer hails from the city of Ljubljana. She performs constantly and has so far performed all across Europe as well as China, India, Israel and Sri Lanka. Her vocal studies began in Ljubljana and only a few years later, she was offered a place at the renowned Trinity College of Music in London, where she studied with esteemed teachers and singers and graduated with distinction. While studying singing, she also took acting with acting greats like Jeremy Irons, Imelda Staunton and Jonathan Pryce.

Two days after she graduated, she made her stage debut in the title role of Bizet’s opera Carmen and has since performed before Queen Elizabeth II., at the World EXPO in Shanghai and at the Westminster Cathedral. Her recent performances include concerts in Prague, Tel Aviv, Mumbai and the Houses of Parliament in London, a recital in Edinburgh, starring in the critically acclaimed play All together now!, as well as making her Slovenian National Opera debut and she is currently preparing for her first performance in the US this coming May, when she gives a recital at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.

How would you describe the essence of feminine energy and where do you draw upon it yourself?

The essence of a woman is most beautiful when it is a sum of several elements. In my eyes it is a combination of grace, elegance, self-confidence and above all, kindness. On the stage I draw upon them from the characters I portray. They often face great personal trials and turmoil, most of which can also resonate with women today. I am, in life in general, inspired by the incredible women I am surrounded with. First and foremost my mother and the memories of my two amazing grandmothers as well as my wonderful friends who are admirable artists, doctors, teachers, diplomats, social activists, mothers and sometimes even all this at once. Nature, physical activity - swimming, tai chi and dancing - and meditation are also important to me for maintaining a good energy level. I surround myself with things that bring me joy, be it spending time with my family, friends, seeing a good concert, play, a ballet or contemporary dance performance - all these enrich me and enable me to then share this energy when I am on stage.

Your stage presence is simply impossible to miss. How important is a good connection with the audience to you?

It is the most important thing, the very basis of any good performance for me. I cannot imagine doing justice to my calling without it. Without communication there is no relationship. In its absence we would be mere figures which might look nice and possess an impressive technique, but would do nothing to move you. We spend years training, improving, striding to reach a level that will best enable us to relay the stories of our characters, the music, the poetry all with but one ambition: to bring joy to the people sitting in the auditorium or listening to all this amazing music at home. I want the audience to feel what my character is going through, not just hear it. I want them to be in the character’s journey, to relate to them almost involuntarily. When I feel that they are with me in my every breath, every nuance of a phrase, then I feel a sense of completion. Those moments are priceless.

Where do you draw inspiration for your incredible interpretations?

The inspiration most often arises from the story itself. When it comes to music, the life story of a poet or composer can also offer great insight into how a certain piece of music came to be and that can greatly define the way I approach a particular song. I love movies and can sometimes easily draw parallels between the characters in the opera and the films. However, I find that what works best for me is to try and find things that could correlate in my life and my own experience.

Which of the roles in your repertoire do you relate to the most?

I try to find something to relate to in every role that I portray. I love Tatyana from Eugene Onegin who transforms from an innocent girl into a very graceful and dignified woman. I really enjoyed Carmen as well, as I loved playing a temperamental woman who is self-assured and since the role includes some dancing as well, it was especially fun.

Who in the music world was your greatest influence?

The first name that comes to mind, naturally, is the legendary soprano Montserrat Caballé. However, I have to say that my teachers are right up there with her. I am grateful to them for recognizing in me someone worth investing in. They shared their knowledge in such a way that best built me into who I am today. Firstly, Pia Brodnik, my teacher from Ljubljana, whom I studied with before going to Trinity College of Music in London and later on, my teachers at Trinity. I must also emphasize that other singers, pianists, conductors and theory teachers all contributed to an incredibly supportive and collaborative environment. Add to that the vast variety of musical performances and other arts that are constantly available when living in a metropolis like London and I cannot imagine a better springboard for a young musician.

What other genre aside from opera do you enjoy?

Next to opera I greatly enjoy the very different, more intimate setting of performing art songs. I enjoy collaborations, working with a partner, exchanging ideas, finding a common voice. Such partnership is absolutely essential in chamber music. Outside of classical music my musical roots are primarily in soul music and many of its various expressions. I love neo-soul, jazz and really good hip-hop. I enjoy a good album, be it jazz, blues, world music, folk, rock, pop – the best ones tend to transcend their genres in any case.I do my best to maintain an open mind though having very limited spare time renders me increasingly more selective. A long time ago I sang in a blues band for a short while, later on, while studying in London, I loved singing in a gospel choir and working with a tango quintet, but nowadays I don’t really have the time to seriously dedicate myself to another genre. But if Stevie Wonder calls… (laughs)

What’s on your music player at the moment?

Quite a bit of it, naturally, is opera and art song, as well as some concertos and symphonies. As I mentioned, I like various types of music, everything from blues from way back in the 20’s and 30’s to contemporary classical minimalism. There are staples that are always on my playlist in some way. Albums by artists like Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen, Sarah Vaughan, Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis, Roberta Flack, Jill Scott, Common, Motown etc. Lately I mostly play new albums by Gregory Porter, N’Toko and the amazing Swedish jazz singer Emilia Martensson. As much as I enjoy listening to music, nothing compares to seeing a great artist perform live!

Would you say that good make-up can enhance femininity? And if so, in what way?

Absolutely. Not only can it enhance it but at times bring it out altogether. A lot more happens in the make-up room than just adding paint onto a face. It is often that final but crucial part of creating a character that helps me turn into someone else and walk on stage as someone completely different than I was perhaps just a moment before. It also helps cover up tiny imperfections or remnants of a busy schedule as well as adding to a posture of confidence. I am fortunate that my profession enables me to enjoy the benefits of working with the very best make-up artists in the field. Most performances, particularly those in opera, are a result of team work, of which highly skilled make-up artists are an absolutely essential part.

How long do the preparations – make-up and styling – take before you step on stage? Is that a time of relaxation for you or do you use it to prepare mentally?

It usually takes between two to four hours, though depending on how intricate the costume and make-up of the character is, or if for instance, a wig fitting is involved, it can take much longer.Mental preparations start taking place much earlier. I tend to have a clear vision of how I wish the entire performance to look many weeks, sometimes months in advance. On the day of the performance, however, I like to allow plenty of time for all the necessary preparations. Having a well organized professional team around ensures an environment with no need for stress and insecurity. A peaceful environment is very important for good preparation. I like to be completely ready and done with everything at least forty-five minutes before going on stage.

Which make-up item is never missing from your cosmetic bag?

Mascara, blush and at least one shade of lipstick. I always keep moisturizer and lip ointment close at hand as well.

What’s your favorite Make-Up Designory item?

The quality of MUD products is outstanding. My favorite item at the moment is the cream foundation, which has a high percentage of pigment. It comes particularly in handy when I am pressed for time as it not only discreetly covers imperfections but also provides a great foundation for further applications. It is just one of the many excellent MUD products that help me achieve my desired look on a daily basis.

What does your usual day look like?

I try to maintain certain rituals. Sometimes more, sometimes less successfully. (laughs) I start the day with breathing exercises and very gradual warming up. At times I wait until I feel that the body is fully awake before beginning to speak and warming up the voice. I do Tai Chi and Qi Gong in the first light of day and whenever possible I go swimming in the morning as I find that it infuses my entire day with a certain positive attitude and enthusiasm for work. Breakfast is usually followed by more advanced warm up exercises and then I start going through the repertoire. Depending on what I have set up for the day, I either study new repertoire, take meetings, go to rehearsals - sometimes two or three in a day - have lunch with friends or colleagues or just stay in the practice room and enjoy exploring the music in depth.

How do you take care of your voice and your health, especially in winter months?

I take care that I keep warm when the temperatures are low, spend limited time outside when it is very cold, particularly when I have performances or lots of travelling coming up. I watch that the food I eat is not too taxing on the body. I love herbal teas. I either pick the herbs myself whenever possible or the kind people in my life supply me with them. If I feel that my immune system needs an additional boost, I simply increase the intake of vitamin-and-fiber-rich foods through various types of smoothies. Naturally, I also pamper myself with the right dose of guilty pleasures just for the sake of balance. I enjoy spending time outdoors very much. The connection with nature and meditation are a great source of both calm and energy for me. Other than that, spending time with my friends and my family is vital. And dancing - lots and as often as possible! (laughs)

MUD’s New Unstoppable Lip Colors

How to perfectly apply Lipstick?The new, vivacious colors that can transform your look from fun to fab-ulous are making their way within the MUD lip color collection. These rich, luscious hues go on smooth while the pinks, oranges and reds show off a proud to be loud attitude that is sure to draw a crowd.

“We looked at the current trends and created a

line of lipsticks that blended today’s looks with

a sense of timeless color. The versatility of the

color tones give every woman an opportunity to

choose her shade.”

The magic of the new lip colors just doesn’t happen

overnight as Francine Reich, MUD’s Product

Development Manager will tell you. From customer

requests to marketing research, discovering the perfect

shade is just the beginning of the process of announcing

the grand finalists to join the MUD lip color line.

Once the shades are chosen, the MUD stamp of approval is only given after weeks of

product testing to ensure that they meet the highest of professional standards. This is

where the meticulous eye of Reich catches the details that aren’t recognizable to the

general consumer’s eye.

What undertone does the shade draw out?

How smooth is the application?

How versatile is this shade for various skin tones and how does it fall into place with

existing lipstick shades?

These are just a few of the questions that need a definite answer before making the final

cut. But now, without further ado, we introduce to you the new Satin shades of the MUD

lip color collection.

The seduction of Burlesque brings a warm, yet mysterious power lip that

commands attention.

The gentle, lady-like hue of Charm brings out the ease of confidence that

needs no formal introduction. It simply shows up.

Let’s face it, everyone loves a Flirt. The allure of this hue is the absolute,

undeniable wink of pink.

A hint of red glamour with a youthful vibe makes Lucky the perfect lip color

for a fresh new look.

The electric, dramatics of Idol brings rock star authority with a feminine touch.

This magenta hue makes no apologies for its audaciousness.

Soleil brings the heat with a sultry, bronzing hint of orange. This coral shade

is a great pick-me- up to a natural look that needs a little spark.







To apply Lip Pencil, start at the cupid’s bow and work outward for a defined line for more natural look

For a beautiful shine, use a Lip Gloss or Lip Glaze to complete the look.

For mate effect use Cheek Color or Zero Loose Powder.

Reload the brush and use the same technique on the lower lip and fill in.

Lay the brush and hug the outer lip line, gliding the Lipstick to the center of the lip. Flip the brush over and repeat on the other side.

Using a #310 Lip Brush, load both sides of the brush and begin the application on the outer corner of the top lip.

Beauty Essentials

Recognizing the need of working make-up artists and other industry professionals to be able to broaden and increase their knowledge, Make-Up Designory has created a series of part-time courses. These courses are held conveniently at MUD’s main campuses, MUD Studios and Partner Schools throughout the country and internationally.

MUD Studio courses are based on the same great educational methodology and teacher training that has helped to make MUD a bedrock in make-up education. The courses are pulled from the same curriculum that comprises the longer programs at MUD, but are broken up into smaller modules. These modules can be taken separately or combined, allowing the student to transfer their education to one of MUD’s main campuses.

with a dewy foundation, metallic smoky eye and a nude

lip. Designers included Korto Momula (Liberia), Afrique

to continue the lines of beauty beyond US borders and

I’m proud to represent a line that gives students the

experience and tools they need to succeed, while also

watching the magic of it all coming together on stage.”

The International Make-up Artist Tradeshow kicked off the

year with another sold-out show, but this year proved to be

more than just another event. This year’s show included a

host of presentations by MUD at both the school booth in

the Special Effects exhibit hall, as well as the main hall.

Some of the stars of the show included demonstrations

done at the MUD booths by MUD VP Karl Zundel, Karrie

If you’ve never attended a weekly Industry Speaks event at

one of the MUD campuses, you are truly missing out on the

greatest opportunity to talk with industry leaders that have

changed the face of make-up artistry.

These up close and personal conversations with game

changers in the industry give students the opportunity to

candidly talk about working on set and the many possibilities

available to artists, no matter what their niche may be.

Recently, special guests have included Michael Westmore

MUD Studio Milano

MUD’s excellent professional education is supported by

their equally exceptional line of cosmetics.

That is why, after the great success of the first studio

courses, MUD Milano felt the need to introduce the high

quality line of products to the Italian market.

Right before Christmas, when the city centers were filled

with lights, people and shopping bags, MUD Studio Milano

opened the first distribution centers. The first shops that

hosted a MUD retail space were: Parashop, via Torino,

one of the most crowded streets of Milan, and Nardi Day

spa in Rome, a beautiful wellness centre that has been

involved in the well-being and personal beauty sector for

over 100 years. Soon, MUD products will also be available

at Parashop in Turin.

MUD’s educational approach is followed through in the

shops. In fact, MUD Studio Milano is providing the shops a

skilled Certified Pro I make-up artist who can offer product

knowledge, make-up application tips as well as offer retail

sales support. MUD clientele are offered professional grade

cosmetics and recommendations from Make-Up Designory’s

industry experts.

MUD courses in London

MUD Germany & Austria

The sales have increased tremendously in Germany

and Austria over the last few months as the MUD brand

continues to grow. In Berlin, customers can find a wide

variety of products in the professional shop, Maske Berlin.

The cooperation with JEBE Perfumery in Hamburg began in

January 2014 and will continue with another MUD display

in the new JEBE shop in Lübeck. Both facilities are eager to

serve the needs of customers within the store as well as in

the hair salons with products and workshops.

In Düsseldorf, products are available at Blush Hour, who

currently use MUD products within their own school of

make-up artistry. Within the elegant walls of the very popular

Brennig in Vienna, MUD has found the perfect anchor to

launch products to Austria’s steading growing number of

hair salons and beauty lounges. In Salzburg, a partnership

with well-known salon Kauffmann began in January, giving

customers a fresh look after their hair is styled, along with

the option to attend courses such as Natural Day Make-Up,

Smoky Eye and Teen Make-Up.

First MUD Pro Shop in Belgium

Since September 2013, MUD has spread through the heart

of Europe-in the beautiful country of Belgium. So far, 17

retail locations have been launched and the number is still

growing, giving the brand even more exposure to European

industry professionals.

However, the use professional products are no longer

exclusive to just professional make-up artists anymore.

Over the past year, top notch cosmetic brands have spread

fast while growing in retail locations every day. The Belgium

studios are busy training students to become PRO I

and PRO II level make-up artists throughout the week in

classes such as Bridal Make-Up and High Fashion Make-

Up. Outside of the classroom, MUD products are becoming

more and more available in retail locations to cater to the

needs of both professional and general consumers.

What would surprise most would be the expanding

emphasis on the educational aspect of make-up artistry

within the world of beauty. The popularity of MUD products

essentially comes from the use of the products by students

during their make-up training courses. The need for

professional, premium products initiated the opening of a

second professional shop in the historical town of Ghent.

The shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10h-18h

for shopping and one-on-one consultations with a MUD

artist. MUD students are also able to use the make-up

studio for training purposes when it is available. As most

MUD Studios, exciting workshops and special events are

held throughout the year for customers to join the fun.
