SRA Student Story: Sarah Price

Sarah Price, one of SRA's graduates now a highly successful professional makeup artist

Why did you choose makeup as a career?

It wasn’t an instant thing, choosing makeup. For years I was undecided and only did it as a hobby. The more I did makeup and SFX the more I came to love it - I would spend hours in front of the mirror trying to get that flick or that lip line perfect. Then some of my friends started saying I had talent and needed to get professionally taught, so I started looking.


Why did you choose SRA as your makeup education provider?

When I first started looking for makeup providers, I struggled. I couldn’t find one that would let me continue to work full time AND study. SRA met all of my needs and wants. A part-time course that allowed me to work during the day and study at night.

Tell us about your experience at SRA.

I loved every minute at SRA, from the first class right through to the last day of course, the wonderful tutors and the amazing students. No question was stupid or had been asked too many times. It was wonderful.

What was the highlight while studying at SRA?

The best part was everything, I can’t separate the amazing from the wonderful.

What have you achieved since graduating?

I have recently come off the set of an international film as Head of Makeup. It was an amazing experience as a newly emerged MUA, and they have expressed interest in having me back on future projects. I have also done the makeup for my Local Board elective for her profile shots and I have started my own independent MUA business called 'Fake it or Makeup'.
