Rachel Montgomery, Make-up Artist of the Year

When I first met Susan as an anxious assistant, I was instantly struck by how openly and enthusiastically she was prepared to help other artists – a very rare quality.

I was then very blessed that she took me on as her assistant to be on the receiving end of her talent and experience. Although I came with some knowledge, there were things that I just didn’t really get until I worked with Susan and she made it all very simple.

Susan gives everything to help nurture your talent and is truly proud of your success.

She has always supported me in my career and pushed me when I’ve needed it. I could not have asked for a more dedicated mentor.

I definitely see Susan as the most influential person in my career, and credit her with giving me the skills and drive to be a successful artist. I continue to learn from her even now and she is still there to give me advice when I need it.

Rarely do you find someone that gives so selflessly.

I will always recommend Susan to my assistants now and to anyone wanting to start a career in makeup.

On a more personal note, Susan is one of the kindest people I know and this kindness shines through everything which she takes on.
