Make-up artiste to the stars comes to Sonning

THE woman responsible for making Stephen Fry look respectable for the camera is moving her make-up school to Sonning.

Sue Sian, who works with Fry on QI, is moving the Sue Sian Make-Up School from Teddington to a newly refurbished centre at the Mill at Sonning — the theatre’s former boardroom — and will start new courses in make-up for television, film, fashion and media from the end of September.

She said: “There are a lot of schools that have been set up and they charge a fortune for a six-month course — some of them cost £22,000.

“I get really upset about this because girls come in to see me wanting to be my assistant and they have taken out a loan to do these courses but they aren’t trained to a standard where I can use them.

“The whole point of my school is that I can do it in two weeks.”
