Springing Forward

Fashion & Beauty

For those of you who read my monthly column, you will know I am a mummy to beautiful Penelope and often share my tales of business and mum life. However, this month is all about the beauty of networking. Recently I hosted my very first event, the Spring Collective, alongside the very talented colour theory specialist, Evangeline at Vivaldi, and print scarf designer, Bella Singleton. Following such a positive response from attendees, we are aspiring to bring another seasonal collective in the near future. 

Since having Penelope, I’ve been really focused on diversifying my skill set as a businesswoman. With more than a decade of experience within the permanent makeup industry I love sharing my knowledge with other aspiring females, hence the creation of my business consultancy, Polly Means Business. 

As well as curating my first event, I am also enjoying attending other female networking events and continuing investing in myself. A highlight last month was jetting to Milan, Italy for a Biotek Permanent Makeup Conference – the home of where our equipment and pigments are manufactured. 

In the full flow of networking, last month I also headed to ‘The Big Smoke’ to attend an incredible networking event; Beauty and the Brand, located at The Strand Hotel London. Hosted by Brand Strategist, Fiona O’Sullivan and Roxy Resali, this was an opportunity for beauty professionals to explore how to elevate, align, and affirm their branding in today’s modern world. Listening to expert panellists definitely gives you long term energy and inspiration to take action within your own business. 

These types of networking events can be daunting to show up to alone, however are important for all businesses, whether you are in the embryonic stage of an idea, to owning a fully flourishing company, it’s great to hear everyone’s entrepreneurial journeys. We can all learn from each other. Connecting with other women who are investing and shining a light on their passions sets a strong standard for us all. My personal interest is uplifting females and giving them a voice – these meet ups really inspire me as a business consultant. If you are looking for some business nurturing, head over to Polly Means Business on Instagram and say hello!

Also I’m excited to announce that for the first time ever, we have introduced a makeup brand into the clinic. The award winning delilah makeup has exclusively launched at Enhance Cosmetic Clinic… ta dahh! delilah sits perfectly alongside our existing Alumier skincare range. delilah principles are that they are proud to be certified by PETA as an animal cruelty-free brand – this means no animal testing is conducted, and they don’t sell their products in markets that require animal testing – so that is really positive in today’s world. A company who is committed to environmentally friendly packaging, hoping that in the future everything will be sustainable – looking ahead to achieve fully recyclable and degradable status. 

For years at Enhance Cosmetic Clinic, we’ve offered permanent makeup, our signature touch – artistically applying micro droplets of colour to create stunning makeup for eyes, brows, and lips that last. delilah is the perfect compliment to those who want to amplify their PMU, updating an already established look for an evening, a wedding or an event. The delilah range has an array of options, there are creamy weightless foundations, radiant skin tints, and their latest bestseller product: Lip Saviour – Colour Enhancing Lip Oil, a close rival the hot right now Dior lip oil, at only a fraction of the price.  So much more than a lip oil, this advanced multi-functional magical oil is unique, with its custom personalised staining pigment making it adaptable to all lips. The personalised pigment gently enhances your natural lip colour and perfectly compliments our very popular Lip Blush enhancement. 

Talking of lip blusher, we recently welcomed Norfolk based influencer, Alex in Colour into the clinic. Since her treatment Alex has been raving about the results of her Lip Blush, blowing up our socials with her initial outcome and documenting her healing process. Lip Blush not only adds to your lips a beautiful flush of colour, it also gives an illusion of fullness and is great for anyone who prefers a no-filler approach. 

delilah makeup has seamlessly blended into the clinic with the whole team embarking on training with James McKnight to sharpen our conventional makeup know-how to implement into our growing repertoire of skills. Another fantastic delilah hero product is their luminous primer called – Underwear. Interested in vamping up your makeup bag?  As a certified delilah stockist you can purchase all products via our website or you can collect in person at the clinic, our experienced and friendly team are happy to assist and help you with testing any new shades or products before you buy.

On a personal note, Penelope has reached a milestone by learning to roll over, while my partner Sam has been an incredible source of support as I manage my work commitments. Having my family close by adds a sense of comfort and joy to my life. It was heartwarming to have both Sam and Penelope with me at my Collective event, we try to support one another in all aspects of our relationship. I want to express my gratitude to all the remarkable women who I have connected with recently. Many of you I have met, we have only had correspondence online, yet we come together as a unified force. 

Additionally, as we step into June, summer holidays and packing for the poolside comes to mind! If anyone requires last-minute pre-holiday pampers, smoothing skin treatments or body boosters, feel free to visit us at the clinic. We are ready and waiting to get you looking bikini ready and glowing for the summer season! I eagerly anticipate connecting with more wonderful women in the days ahead.
