Sarah’s interest in all things creative started from a young age. Primarily an artist Sarah studied art at school and college but never really knew what it was she wanted to focus that creativity on. The fashion industry had always been in the back of Sarah’s mind and it was while reading her Vogue magazines that she realised she often focused on the models faces. Sarah decided to join both interests together and continue her education in Makeup Artistry.

While on her course Sarah worked for Laura Mercier cosmetics and after graduating Sarah was then successful in being employed by M.A.C cosmetics. During her time working for the company Sarah gained invaluable experience on a busy, high demand makeup counter, working with many different types of cliental, of all ages and races. From Asian bridal, prom makeup to makeup lessons for brides getting married in sunnier climates.

Sarah wanted to pursue a freelance artistry career so opened The Makeup Studio in Dronfield. Here a thriving business was created and Sarah is able to offer and work alongside like minded colleagues and creatives offering in store applications, mobile bridal makeup and working on her passion in photoshoots and commercial makeup alongside.


The Makeup Studio, is a boutique studio situated on the high street in Dronfield. The studio caters for anybody wanting bespoke makeup artistry in a relaxed and friendly environment. It offers in-store services for everything from weddings, special occasions and lessons to just going out makeup. The Makeup Studio is in a great central location for people coming from Dronfield, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Rotherham, Barnsley and other surrounding areas.

    Me and my friends have had our make up done on a number of occasions with Sarah and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. She recently did my wedding and she made me, my mum and my friends feel amazing. She listens to what you want, Sarah is one talented lady . Thank you again so much.

    Sarah did my make up for my nephews wedding, she was fantastic. I had fallen off my bike a few days before and had a severe black eye and other bruising to my face, the transformation was amazing and looked very natural. Thank you Sarah.

    Had a brilliant girly day at the studio having makeup lessons with my mum and my auntie. Sarah was amazing and taught us all so much, we all left looking super glam.
    I have also been lucky enough to work with Sarah on photography shoots and she is very talented, creative and also resourceful. i’ve never known anyone be able to fit a mermaid’s tail so professionally!

    Sarah did an amazing job on me and my bridesmaids at my wedding. From the moment I booked her I knew I’d made the right choice as she was always in contact, which totally put my mind at ease! I’ve never had my make up professionally done before, but next time I have a big occasion I will definitely be going back to Sarah and will be recommending her to everyone!
