MUD New York School Director
Originally from New Jersey, Marc Scoleri completed his
undergraduate degree at University of Delaware and later
earned an MBA from Argosy University. During his early years,
Marc grew up around and worked for his family’s salon and day
spa. Since then, he’s always been drawn to creative industries
such as media arts, design, fashion and photography.
Marc worked several years in the creative recruiting and
talent management industry and eventually transitioned
into the educational sector. He spent nine years working for
Education Management Corporation and The Art Institutes
in Philadelphia and New York City. During this time, Marc
had several roles including Executive Committee Member

Be true to yourself. Do
what interests you. If
you don’t know what
your interests are, try
different things until
you figure it out.
You were hired a year ago to take on a pretty big role here at MUD. What
interested you in taking the position of School Director?
I was referred to MUD by Brenna Belardinelli, the current Assistant
Director at the NY campus. I worked with Brenna before, and she highly
recommended MUD; so I took the referral into high consideration. What
attracted me to this position was the opportunity to learn the behindthe-scenes operations of a make-up school. After the interview process
and getting to know the staff, I knew I wanted to be part of the team.
A school director oversees every aspect of operating a school
efficiently. With so many people involved in the operations, how do
you inspire your team to work together—in other words, what is your
style of leadership?
I believe in participative leadership and like to encourage employees to
try new things and to not be afraid of failing or making a mistake. I try
to find the areas that people excel at and encourage them to more of that
while supporting any development areas they may need to hone. I often
lead by taking action; I try to learn something about all the jobs within
the organization because it helps me understand what the pain points
are so that we can fix them or remove any obstacles that are in the way.
In addition, I make it a habit to get up and walk around the school to
check in with teachers and staff on a daily basis.
The entire NY campus is moving from one building to another. That
can’t be easy! What has been your involvement with this process?
We’re building an entire floor [15th Floor of the AMEX building] so,
I’m involved in the day-to-day construction meetings with the site
and building managers. I keep the CEO informed of our daily progress
when he’s in Los Angeles. It’s been a great learning experience and very
exciting to see plans come to fruition.
What do you expect the new space to offer your students?
It will offer an impressive 301 FX Lab with a skyline view as well as a view
of the Hudson River. Everything is being built out, so we have brand new
facilities. It will also include a student lounge, a separate teacher’s lounge,
conference rooms and lots of space.
How do you think it will make a difference?
One of the major differences is that the bigger space allows for more
Master and Multi-media students. The design and flow of the school
has a great creative energy—there are lots of windows and lots of light
coming in. There are two convenient entrances to the school; students
won’t have to carry their kits up a flight of stairs! The location also has
several trains within 1-2 blocks radius.
What are a few mind-blowing projects you’ve seen roam the halls at MUD?
I’m amazed by all the final projects. It’s mind blowing to see what these
students can create only after six months of training. With no prior
experience, to come out of FX 301 and create a full prosthetic character
make-up is just phenomenal.
Your professional path has stayed in line with helping people
achieve their career goals. What is the most important piece of
advice that you find yourself repeating to those searching for a
career that’s right for them?
Be true to yourself. Do what interests you. If you don’t know what your
interests are, try different things until you figure it out. Network (meaning
build quality relationships with peers and clients), get a mentor or talk to
someone in a field that interests you. It’s so important to do what you’re
passionate about. I give everyone that advice—be true to yourself.
“All the World’s a Stage”
- William Shakespeare, As You Like It
interview with actress Katarina Cas
Katarina Cas landed her first acting role at the age of thirteen in the TV movie Hell’s Plan. While acting began as a hobby, she’s been taking
movie roles ever since. At twenty, she began hosting numerous television shows and pursued her acting career more actively. She appeared
in several TV series and commercials and later went on to audition abroad where she landed a significant role in the Irish black comedy The
Guard—an international, multi-award-winner. This opened the doors to more opportunities including a role in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall
Street. Other credits include a lead in a Scottish short film Liam and Lenka, and roles in the English comedy-series A Touch of Cloth, New
Tricks and Death in Paradise– the popular series by the BBC - and the movie Danny Collins with Al Pacino.
What gets you out of bed every day?
My golden retriever staring at me: “Yo! You ARE gonna take me on my morning walk,
aren’t you?” Every morning.
What goes through your mind when meeting new people? Trust or distance?
Nothing specific goes through my mind. I am generally a trusting person.
Do you tend to go with the flow or do you prefer to plan every detail?
Depends. I can be annoyingly particular, mostly in matters that do not really matter.
But, thank god, most of my closest people do not notice this characteristic of mine and
would still call me spontaneous.
Is the line between the characters you play and yourself always clearly defined? To
what extent does make-up help you define the difference?
Sometimes there are similarities between me and the characters I portray, but
I’ve mostly played roles that had absolutely nothing to do with my life and that is
what makes it most interesting. It is then that you can truly use your imagination.
The lines can be blurry, however. After all, it is me on the big screen, though a
different me, with a different social background, different behavior, a different way
of thinking—even though the emotions come from within me. You look for things
you have in common with the character and you try to get into being that character
the best way you can. Make up and costume help tremendously. Just by looking in
the mirror and seeing the character rather than yourself makes it much easier to
become that character.
What is the difference between a European and a US movie production?
I really enjoy filming, being that in the States or Europe or wherever. But, I think the
main difference is financial. In the US, film is an industry while in Europe it is still the
seventh art. Well, Bollywood is a whole different story, I guess, haha ...
What was your first thought when you got the call for “The Wolf of Wall Street”?
It was the most obvious of thoughts: Whadda...? Is this real? So cliché, haha.
What do you think best defines a good relationship between an actor and a director
and the rest of the crew?
Dialogue and debating the role, by all means. Aside from that I like working with
directors who are not nervous, who know what they are doing and have a sense of humor
... It’s easier to work that way ...The rest of the crew is really important, so the synergy
between an actor, director and the crew is very crucial. I think respect is the main thing.
We cannot omit this question – you have worked with Leonardo DiCaprio, Al
Pacino, Martin Scorsese ... Did you become friends while making the movie, were
they just colleagues or were they unapproachable stars?
They were all fantastic to work with, none of them ever made themselves
unapproachable. On the contrary—Leo was very welcoming and Marty was especially
attentive to my character and the scenes. We all shared the same kind of humor, but I
think I hit it off best with Scorsese, Christopher Plummer and Al. Generations aside,
we laughed like children together.
What do you expect from a professional make-up artist?
Understanding the character I am playing, collaborating and debating about what’s
important for the character. I did a role once with no make-up whatsoever (in the
BBC series New Tricks), not even foundation as that was in line with the character
I played. I had to appear distraught and older than I really am, so even no make-up
can be make-up for a specific role. Make- up and costume are definitely important
components for defining the visual appearance of a character.
When I was playing Chantalle from The Wolf of Wall street, they sprayed me with a fake
tan and I got really long fake nails—and, I have to admit, it’s hard to do anything with
such long nails, even just typing a message on iPhone! But, even such a little thing can
help with getting into the character.
The movie The Guard directed by John Michael McDonagh was shot in Ireland in
the freezing cold and wind. What were the preparations like on that set in terms of
make-up, costumography and hair?
I kept heaters in my shoes the entire time as well as wore thermo underwear and several
layers of tights and I was still cold. Gabriella, my character in the movie is shy and timid
so her make-up was minimal—a bit of lip ointment and a touch of mascara—that was all.
On the other hand filming Death in Paradise in Guadelopue (Carribean) was a totally
different story...lots of sun, lots of sunscreen and lots of mosquito repellents before
the foundation. I smelled like a lemon all the time, haha.
You have an opening night coming up for your new movie “Danny Collins”. How do
you plan your red-carpet look?
I am more focused on the upcoming work than I am on the wardrobe. But, that will
drastically change once the invitation for the premiere comes in. It will probably be in
L.A., so I will not be freezing for once—even in winter.
So what’s next?

The fourth-degree black belt beauty, Nia Sanchez received the MISS
USA 2014 sash and crown amidst a cheering crowd at the Civic
Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and seen on television in over 70
countries and territories. As the official cosmetics sponsor for MISS
USA® and MISS TEEN USA®, Make-Up Designory was two-fold in
that MUD products were used and applied by a team of top MUD
graduates from their New York and Los Angeles campuses.
Becoming the sponsor of one of the most recognized brands in the
world, the Miss Universe Organization® started off with an instant
connection beyond a business partnership. As MUD continues to
grow into non-traditional target markets, they recognized that 2.5
million girls compete in pageants each year in the US alone, with
beauty products being an important investment. Most pageant
contestants are also involved with performing arts and other
performance based activities that often call for make-up artists to
prepare them for the stage. That’s when the theory just made sense,
“Why stop at the make-up artists when you can go straight to the
person that they’re catering to?”
The partnership kicked off on the MUD website with special tutorials specifically for
pageant viewers. Videos on how to create a flawless, natural face for any stage, as
well as glamming up the look with a dramatic eye were just what pageant viewers
were looking for. Face charts designed by MUD’s Lead Make-up Artist, Sean
Conklin were also available for download at
A special team of MUD Make-up Artists chosen by Sean made up the faces of all 51 contestants that
were queens in their own right, by representing their home state. For two weeks leading up to the final
competition, the girls’ faces were prepared for special local events, photo shoots and preliminaries.
Sean’s strategy for choosing his team integrated experience,
passion and professionalism. “Each artist had to be a MUD
graduate with experience. The goal was to create a great working
dynamic. Since we would be working on 51 contestants, judges
and TV personalities in a span of 12 hours, we needed to be quick,
precise and, needless to say, pleasant. Now that the whirlwind of
events are over, I look back and am astonished at the way our team
performed—like clockwork. The girls were all willing and able, and
as a whole, I couldn’t have asked for a better team.”
Lauren Smeraglia
Lauren carries MUD products at her salon The Powder
Room so she’s very familiar with the products.
Sean Conklin About The
Amazing MUD team
It takes amazing individuals to make a great team, we asked
Sean to sum up in a few words why he chose each artist.
Ashley Guirdy:
“I remember Ashley as a
student. She has a great
personality and she’s a
fantastic artist. It was great
to have a Louisiana local!”
Here’s what he said:
Vanessa Moreno:
“This gal is as sweet as
can be, but her skills
really pack a punch!”
Chelsea Wallace:
“Chelsea’s background includes pageants.
Her experience, along with her upbeat
personality, and her excitement for joining
the team is what sealed it for us.”
Jessica Poche:
“She’s another Louisiana local, so having her
friendly personality and excellent make-up
skills on our team worked out perfectly.”
Jill Pugh:
“Jill is fast and furious. Her
make-up skills in beauty are
superb and her work ethic is
phenomenal. We were really
lucky to have her on board.”
Denise Zamora:
“Dee is my right hand woman! She’s great at delegating,
awesome at her make-up skill and loved by all.”

As part of the launch of the first German MUD Studio,
Miriam Jacks decided to make a grand entrance. We
thought, “The next best thing to shouting it from the
rooftops is a reality-tv show in the style of “Top Model.”
In cooperation with one of the main TV networks, RTL,
we shot a 5 part TV series.
But let’s face it, even something as simple as using a palette knife
takes some getting used to. Although in the end, they handled it
like seasoned artists, which reiterates the need for quality, real life
training and a solid education.
With only 5 days to shoot, there were often times a rush through
scenes to fully get the dramatics on camera, but the audience will
definitely get a clear scope of the pressures of an artist.

The Concept: Five contestants battle it out with live make-up artist

the MUD Studio courses.
Each day, the contestants received a master class to learn more
about the foundations of Make-Up Designory and there was no one
better to start it off than with Paul Thompson himself. His heartfelt
presentation helped to ease the minds of the new students who
were already feeling the pressure.

Jackie Caruso
Contributor: Stacia McCarthy
Jackie Caruso is a 2009 graduate of the MUD Journeyman certificate
program, where she received training in hair, make-up, skincare and
airbrush. Since completing her studies at MUD, Jackie has been a
consistently working make-up artist, freelancing in various industries such
as print, film, television, runway and bridal.
Her highest level of achievement since obtaining her degree from MUD has been keying
shows at New York Fashion Week for the past two years. The make-up looks applied
to the models were designed entirely by Jackie who participated in and supervised
the execution of her creative concepts. Recently, her work has been published in
Seventeen Magazine and Metro NY.
In addition to her freelance work, Jackie spends her days working at the Make-Up
Designory MUD Shop in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. Her future goal is
to one day own her own shop where she can incorporate her well-honed skills and
expertise to lead her staff.
In between driving around Berlin in a yellow school bus, we managed
to squeeze in a stop at the German Government District with its
shades of grey concrete walls in countless angles-perfect as the
backdrop for the next edition of the MUD Art magazine.
Paolo Maranan
After graduating college with a double degree in the medical field, Paolo
Maranan decided to pursue his dream of becoming a make-up artist. He
chose to study at the prestigious Make-Up Designory (MUD) in New York
City. Since completing his coursework in 2009, Paolo has created quite a
name for himself in the make-up industry in his native country, the Philippines.
Within just a few months, Paolo earned the title of Celebrity Make-up Artist through
word of mouth referrals, becoming the main make-up artist for several Filipino
celebrities. As his national notoriety increased, Paolo was featured at the first-ever
launch of Clinique in the Philippines, a fashion show that showcased him as well as the
brand. He later became Clinique’s Chief Color Artist and Trainer.
The contestants, Katja and Alex got to collaborate with Miriam on
the assignment. After 5 make-up changes and shivering in hard
blowing, cold and rainy wind, the fabulous photos were born. Hey,
who said being a make-up artist was easy? The winner and runnerup are now preparing to be students. The journey that started out
as a yellow bus in front of the Brandenburg Gate, will sure to go on
to even more exciting places.

In his professional work, Paolo uses a variety of MUD products favoring the matte
blushes. He says, “I find them useful in tropical climates like the Philippines. The
matte blushes never let me down, it’s easy to create a dewy finish while avoiding
a too made-up look”.

Create the perfect canvas with a MUD Cream

Shadow Brush or #350 Shadow/Blender Brush.
Use the #210 Angled Liner Brush to wing the
Brownstone into the outer corner and fill in the
complete shape up to just above the lid.
Using the #100 Eyeliner Brush or the #210
Angled Liner Brush, add the Black Cake Eyeliner to define the lash line, with a wing that
outlines the Brownstone.
Step by Step
Fall’s sultry eyes are created with the richness
of Brownstone and the precision of Black
Cake Eyeliner on our beautiful model Maya.
The graceful ballerina, Hyemin Kim lends her
captivating beauty for our step-by-step tutorial.
Each model’s lips are potent in Burlesque’s burst
of deep berry red.
Use the Mauve Lip Pencil to define the lip line
and fill in to deepen the lip color.
To create the classic brow, draw in the eye
brows with a complimentary shade of Eye
Pencil or Eye Color. Layer the color lightly for
more depth.
Follow the lower lash line with a soft application
of Brownstone in the outer corner of the eye
using the #210 Angled Liner Brush.
Work the Liner into the lower lash line, extending it just after the outer corner of the eye. For a
more dramatic look, apply Lash 101.
Layer the Burlesque Lipstick with the #310 Lip
Brush for a rich color.

1. The first step to this look is
bringing dimension to the
face by using principles of highlight
and shadowing. Cream or powder
products in flesh tones work best. The
more shades of products you use,
the more dimension you will achieve.
Look for the light spots and shadows
of your face by using a mirror.

2. The second step is designing
the eyebrows. For a precise
and realistic shape of the brows,
draw hair by hair on the face chart.
Using a fine brush, first sketch the
position of the actual brow with a
lighter color. Next, apply the shade
a little darker over the entire shape.
Finally, accent the outer corner of
the brow with an eyeliner.
Final look
Eye Color: Pavement
Cake Eyeliner: Black
Brushes #210, #100
3. This face chart was designed for the MUD
image specifically for the eye products so the
focus will be an eccentric eye make-up application.
Apply a light Eye Color to the inner corner of the eye.
Then add a darker color in the outer corner,
extending it all over the upper lid and towards the
eyebrow. For more intensity, first apply the creamier
version of the color, over the upper lid. Then blend
it in using the powder form for a precise transition.
Next, take a fine brush to line the eyes. Apply
to both the top and bottom lids. Use the same
brush with less product to create lashes with lots
of volume. Give life to the iris by coloring it with
color pencils.
Eyeshadow/Canvas,Onyx, Statue
Cake Eyeliner/Black
Brushes: #300, #810, #210, #100
4. The final step is creating
the lips. Use a cream
product, blending it softly on the
paper and adding dimension by
building up layers of product.
For a more realistic look, add lip
wrinkles using your own lips for
direction on how to draw them.
