Empire Education Group Acquires Westmore Academy

Empire Education Group announced it has acquired The Westmore Academy. The new Westmore Academy at Empire will operate as an advanced makeup academy for spa, salon, television, motion picture, theatre, runway and session makeup artists at its current location in Burbank, CA. Empire will also rebrand its current advanced makeup academy in New York City under The Westmore Academy at Empire’s moniker while expanding the Westmore programs throughout the country. “The Westmore family is truly the first family of makeup in every sense of the word—they even have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as a tribute to four generations’ contributions to their art and craft,” says Franklin K. Schoeneman, chairman and CEO of Empire Education Group. “Together, the Empire family and the Westmore family will provide working makeup artists, as well as Empire’s cosmetology students, with a new level of excellence and experience in makeup education, increasing their career options after graduation.”
