PARAMITA INC. - International - TOP PRIVATE MAKEUP SCHOOL IN CANADA since 2002
Paramita's goal is to mould all students into professional makeup artists. By expanding their creative abilities through our one-on-one instructed Bootcamps we ensure that each student learns new techniques to become an artistic, expressive and confident makeup artist in their chosen field. Paramita gives students the skills to not only work as Makeup Artists, but to empower other women by bringing out their natural beauty and confidence. Students will also learn about marketing, networking, job opportunities, business cards and setting goals. Once in the workforce they will have the know-how to promote themselves competitively.
All Bootcamps at the flagship location in Toronto, are instructed by the owner/creator of Paramita Inc. Jessica Obregon, who has over 15 years of experience since she became a Makeup Artist in London, England. She has created a proven method of training and offers dynamic, up to date and information filled Bootcamps.
She has worked on celebrities, including; Ellen Page, Peter Mansbridge and Michael Smith
