Bellus Academy is celebrating the launch of its Master Makeup Artistry program as it launches a “Monday’s with Morphe and MUD” Instagram makeover series. Each Monday on Instagram @bellusacademy, Bellus Academy makeup artistry leaders will present story makeovers inspired by emerging trends in beauty, fashion and pop culture, using products from Bellus Academy’s two professional makeup partners, Morphe Cosmetics and Makeup Designory (MUD).

The makeover series coincides with Bellus Academy’s Master Makeup program, a 602-hour program launching in October. Each week’s Instagram story will feature a signature look ranging from avant-garde to natural, and demonstrate techniques such as facial contouring, concealing and body art.

Integrating esthetics and makeup artistry, the Master Makeup course will equip students with the technical and artistic skills required to perform professional makeup applications including theatrical, airbrush, bridal and high definition makeup. The course concludes with a professional photoshoot to support each participant’s professional portfolio.

Remarking on the new program, Bellus Academy owner Lynelle Lynch said the program allows students to work with two of the fastest-growing brands in the professional makeup sector – Morphe and Makeup Designory. “The artistic spirit and professional quality of these brands reflects the innovation, technology, and creativity that underlie the work of professional makeup artists,” said Lynch. “We’re excited about highlighting the talents of our educators and our students as they use these companies’ palettes, powders, and pencils to create a wide range of makeup looks.”
