student testimonial

“"I initially enrolled into the certification make-up program offered at the Newmarket Canadian Beauty College so that I could gain knowledge that I could bring to my own students. What I received was much more! Their exceptionally skilled make-up instructors taught me that make-up is an art that is an extension of our personalities, gives us confidence and helps us see the beauty in ourselves and others.""
