Bellus has had the distinct privilege and opportunity to be the first official partner school for Make-up Designory (MUD), a global name in makeup education and products. This video talks a little about the beginning of our outstanding partnership:
“I was recently asked “Why did MUD choose Bellus?” But really, Bellus chose MUD. Bellus Academy is our very first partner school, and it’s really the brain child of Lynelle Lynch, the owner of Bellus. She really wanted to add makeup education, quality makeup education, to her institution, and she approached us with the idea of partnering and kind of providing a good quality education to students. The whole concept of us being here really came from Bellus. it has led MUD to do this partner school or partnership relationship with other schools across the country but it was done here first.” -Paul Thompson, Director of Education for MUD
What a MUD Partnership Means
The MUD name brings with it the promise of quality and practicality. The internationally acclaimed MUD makeup artistry course taught at all four Bellus locations can give you the technical skills to work at fashion shoots, runways, film sets and so much more! We aren’t just proud partners with MUD, but we were their first partner school!
Makeup at Bellus
Our MUD makeup course can be taken alongside one of our cosmetology or esthetics courses. It usually takes 4-6 weeks to complete, depending on if you are enrolled in the daytime or evening schedule. It’s a great way to extend your education, improve confidence and widen your skillset, and doesn’t take too much time!
The MUD makeup kit you receive during your program is incredible! It is packed with tons of useful brushes, makeup, tools, and everything you could ever need as a professional makeup artist! This kit helps create a foundation for our students to work from with their professional career after graduation. With this kit, our students can perform makeup for nearly anything ranging from simple bridal makeup to theatrical airbrushing. Also, since the products are part of our MUD partnership, they’re top-notch!
The makeup program covers a wide array of critical skills to help our students be successful. Whether it’s general beauty or special effects makeup for movies, our course covers it! The best part is that our students have an opportunity to perform their own photoshoot at the end of the program to build their personal portfolio. It’s always incredibly fun!

Land your dream career
from our students and graduates
“I chose Bellus because I've always wanted to have a career where I would make people feel better about themselves. The education exceeded my expectations and the program has helped me step out of my comfort zone and discover my passion for cosmetology. During my time here, my favorite experience has been doing make-up at the Kansas City fashion week, which was unforgettable!”
“What inspired me to pursue barbering was seeing the before and after, the connection that I make with people and seeing their reaction of how much they love the end result.
My favorite part so far has been making the connection with friends here and watching us all grow together in our craft. My most memorable moments have been with my instructors with Teffi and Carlo they have always motivated me to do my best and without their help I wouldn’t be as successful as I am now!”
“I enrolled in Spa Nails because I was interested in trying a different path in life. I am a mom to 3 and I wanted to show them a future doing something that you love. Making people feel relaxed, building friendships and leaving them happy with their nails!”
“I chose Bellus Academy because of their success rates and the Master Esthetics program. I wanted to feel knowledgeable and well equipped to enter the industry with advanced training. To know I would be able to walk out of my program confident in my ability to perform services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion motivated me. My CIDESCO certification enables me to be a practicing esthetician internationally!”
“I chose Bellus Academy because of the reviews and seeing it rated #1. My favorite part of my Esthetics program was the Medical-Luxury Spa training. It opened my mind to a lot of different things that I wasn’t even expecting. My plan after I graduation is to work for a Spa on a cruise ship to gain that experience before I own my own business!”
"My favorite part of this journey is seeing how much I have improved from the start of my program, not just with skill but with my timing of services as well. My advice for anyone looking to attend Bellus Academy is to just go for it; it's a once in a lifetime experience that can help you discover so much about yourself and grow as a person!"
