BEING beautiful may come naturally to Sarah Jayne Dunn, but now she is helping others to look glamorous,

The Leigh actress, who is best known for her role as Mandy Richardson in Hollyoaks, has set up her own beauty service - Makeup By Sarah Jayne.

She said: “Last year, I was in between jobs and I did a hair and make up course and trained in HD brows, as I have always been into beauty.

“I do my own make-up for ceremonies and awards and I do my friends’ hair and make-up for weddings or events, so I thought I would set up my own service.

“It is something I have always been interested in.

“It is really good fun and another string to my bow.

“As an actor you get a lot of down time and I wanted to do something to keep busy and earn money and so in my spare time I do HD brows and make-up.”

The 31-year-old is currently on tour with The Original Theatre Company for the drama production Birdsong, based on the wartime novel by Sebastian Faulks. She plays married Frenchwoman Isabelle Azaire, who embarks on a passionate affair with Englishman Stephen Wraysford.

Sarah, who had been in Hollyoaks on and off since she was 14, finally left the soap in 2011. She has starred in a number of theatrical productions, including Boeing, Boeing, The Vagina Monologues and When Harry Met Sally.
