Friday, August 26, 2016
Many on Norfolk would now be familiar with Sarah, it’s hard not to miss Sarah and her sister Bec if you visit The Olive Cafe. The lovely ladies have been living on Norfolk for some time now,  arriving on Norfolk for a ‘short break’ commonly referred to as GAP Year when she completed high school in Oamaru in the South Island of New Zealand. During Sarah’s time at school she had a love of Ballet and also became heavily involved in Theatre and Dance Productions.  Sarah was a part of Chicago and Footloose, it is here being actively involved in stage productions a passion of Make-Up and Artistry formed and Sarah is the hottest new Make -Up Artist of Norfolk Island. 

Sarah was born in Welsford New Zealand, the whole Johnson Family have now relocated and built a new house a couple of years ago on Norfolk. ‘I love the fact that friendly locals are always willing to help each other and complete strangers. I am amazed that within the community there is a sense of familiarity between youths and the older generation.’

Since deciding to pursue a career in something she loved, Sarah enrolled in the QC Makeup Academy, studying a Certificate in Master Make-Up Artistry and an Air Brushing Course. Sarah has been working closely with Island Concierge in Bridal Makeup, Formals and Special Events. Next year in July 2017 after a trip through Europe with boyfriend Dylan Quantrill-Nobbs, whom she fell in love with once living on Norfolk, will travel together to Canada to live and it is here in Canada Sarah plans to pursue her goal to work on movie and TV sets as a Make-Up Artist. 

Make-Up by Sarah Beth can be booked directly through Sarah’s email or you may see her in person at The Olive Cafe making wonderful coffee alongside her sister Rebecca (Bec),The RSL Club working in the kitchen with her Mum and Dad, also by following her Instagram account. Moving to Norfolk has been the best decision of her life, falling in love and embracing the island way of life, finding our community homely and the beaches and views are described by Sarah as ‘breathtaking’.

Norfolk Island holds many of career paths and opportunities for young folk who reside on Island. At times it can feel isolated however to the right person this can be a blessing in disguise. The uniqueness of the community, quietness to study and learn in a pristine environment can assist dreams and make them a reality, as Sarah has done by utilising her time on Norfolk surrounded by family and friends to pursue her dream career in Make Up.
