Antoinette Parfitt Cox developed the Artistry of Permatech teaching method in 2007, after spending a decade and a half correcting other artists’ work. Realizing there was a lack of properly trained permanent makeup artists, she founded Permatech Makeup Training Studio. Since then, Antoinette has trained and certified many of today’s leading artists – and trainers – from California to England.

Amber Parfitt owner of Creative Cosmetics Ink Training Studio, is one of the master trainers personally trained by Antoinette. Amber has been in the beauty industry since 1983 and trained as a permanent cosmetic artist in 1997. After years of correcting other artists work, she feels as Antoinette does, that the industry needs quality trained professionals. So, after many years of providing high quality services to a wide variety of clientele, she trained as an instructor in 2010 and is concentrating on Creative Cosmetics Ink Training Studio and training others on how to do permanent make-up correctly. With so much experience and a great team of highly trained professionals, Amber is ready to help anyone learn more about all the latest permanent makeup techniques.
