Sarah is a professional makeup artist and owner of Sarah Jane’s situated on Old Durham Road in Gateshead.
Sarah started out in the beauty industry in 2008 studying beauty therapy at Gateshead College. She always kept her hand in at beauty when leaving college enrolling on short courses and providing treatments for friends and family, however decided to take a career move and worked as a dental nurse for a few years.
After working in the dental industry for a few years she decided that there was no job satisfaction and was loosing interest in the job role. She decided to leave her role as a dental nurse and enrol onto a business management course at South Tyneside college.
During studying she set up a beauty business from a small room within a gym in Hebburn and worked here at weekends and on evening. In 2015 she graduated with A HND in business management and trained to be a professional makeup artist over the summer. Within 6 months she had the keys to her first salon which she named Sarah Jane’s situated near Saltwell Park in Gateshead.
After a year of hard work it became clear the salon was outgrowing itself and relocated to its current home on Old Durham Road.
Alongside makeup the salon also offers all aspects of hair and beauty with an additional 4 freelance stylists/therapists based from Sarah Jane’s.
As well as being salon based Sarah loves working freelance around the north east. During the summer months she will be working from various wedding venues around the region each weekend. She also does work for commercial, editorial and fashion shoots.
Her work has been featured in local newspapers and TV shows as well as in bridal magazines and clothing brand websites. She has also worked closely with Miss Tyne and Wear / Miss North East competitions and local modelling agency Headline Models.
Sarah is excited that Sarah Jane’s will be the makeup sponsor for Gok Wans roadshow – one size fits all in October in Manchester where she will be sole makeup artist for the show working with Gok to create the perfect looks for the catwalk show!
