  Oshun Woman is a Canadian registered not-for-profit organization. Our focus is on  empowering women by teaching beauty industry skills. Our flagship program emPowered by Beauty teaches economically challenged women living primarily in urban areas of how to be a makeup artist.  We further assist by helping participants to promote their new skills with entrepreneur training and apprenticeships.

 What our participants learn.

I am Jessica Carter.  emPowered by Beauty is my idea, but it is born from many interactions with wonderfully supportive people over the years, family, friends, actors,  NGO's , ambassadors,  politicians and producers.  emPowered by Beauty is about  collaboration,  education and sharing knowledge worldwide with underemployed  women

Talented young artist in Ghana

A few years ago, I was invited by a local Women's organization, Network of Women in Growth, to travel to Ghana, West Africa to teach Make-Up artistry and Natural Skin Care product-making to a group of 25 underemployed women.
The experience was life-changing. The women that I worked with were immediately enabled to use their new  skills, over a short 14 day period  the women  went to work in their communities and started to earn an income.


We are global

Working within marginalized communities emPowered by Beauty will teach makeup artistry skills and skincare product making. Contact us for program availability.


emPowered by Beauty is currently looking for funding partners.  We are always looking for volunteers and donations of new makeup!
