MilliOnAir interactive Magazine April 2017 - Page 88

MilliOnAir Global Magazine caught up with Michelle Margaret Marques the Founder and Creator of one of the UK’s most up and coming beauty brands Elise Marques London, just before she launches more products in her range.


We asked Michelle about her own personal story and why setting up Elise Marques London has been so important to her and she happily responded:

MOA: Who is Michelle Margaret Marques? 

M: I'm a Mum of four beautiful children, an entrepreneur and strong business woman. I'm also someone who really cares about others, an advocate of self care and making yourself matter, its why I do everything I do. I value my experience, I own what I know, I get great satisfaction from sharing my expertise and I grow through helping others. 

MOA:  When did you first realise you wanted to launch your own beauty brand?

M:  It's been a passion of mine for a long time, however, I knew inside I had to do it three years ago. I've seen such a difference to clients over the years and I've always been passionate about sharing my knowledge with anyone who would listen, my clients began asking why aren't you doing your own brand. After the encouragement from my clients I decided it was time for me to step up, take responsibility for what matters to me and actually do something to make a difference.


MOA: Why did you develop Elise Marques London? 

M:  My journey has brought me here, it's my purpose I have to do it. I truly believe everyone matters, everyone should feel loved, everyone should have self care and I can make a difference. My mother tragically passed away from a heart attack at the age of 37, just before my 19th birthday, I became frightened that would happen to me, I decided I needed to find a way to make sure that didn't happen to me. Through practicing self care and developing my evening miracle I learned I matter and I want you to remember you matter.

MOA:  Why the name Elise Marques London? 

M: it might sound cliched, however, it just felt right, there is a lot more to it than that. I want the brand to feel personal to you and that had to start with it being personal to me, a part of me if you like. Elise is my daughters middle name and Marques part of my name. The brand and everything we stand for is more than personal to me; I've developed our core values, our brand style, our beliefs are my beliefs and anyone we work with has to have aligned beliefs and believe in what we do. It's a brand I've put myself into entirely and developed from the start. I believe we are an inspirational brand and we will inspire you to look at your self care and your environment very differently.
