Elise Munroe has re-located from Barrowford to larger premises in Spring Lane, Colne. The business - named Elise Nicolè Makeup Studio - offers makeup appointments and one-to-one lessons with clients, where they can complete a three-day Guild Training International accredited makeup course to become a qualified makeup artist.
She also offers one-to-one lessons to 11-14 year olds to learn how to apply makeup properly, along with ‘learn you own face’ lessons for those aged 15 and above.
Elise said: “When I viewed Calder House, it had been made into three separate rooms with an extra room added on. They needed a lot of work and I nearly walked away, but then my grandad said just take a breather and keep an open mind at the potential. So that is what I did.
“I always wanted to be my own boss and I couldn’t ever picture myself doing anything else other than making people feel confident, beautiful and happy.
“I still have so much more that I want to achieve and it’s an industry that is constantly evolving. I’ve turned my passion into a career, it’s a fantastic feeling to know I’m supporting others on that journey - it really doesn’t feel like work.”
Elise has also launched a cosmetics line, EliseNicolèCosmetics and her larger premises has also afforded Elise the opportunity to invite several
other businesses to reside with her. So, what words of advice would Elise give to other young people starting out on their dreams?
She said: “Never give up your goal no matter how many knock backs you have, make sure to take them as a learning curve.
“Secondly, make sure it’s something you love doing so then it feels you are never working a day in your life. Thirdly, have the confidence in your mindset; don’t look at other similar businesses as competition, always think positively. The challenge is to make sure your work stands out.”
