MEET MOLLY

HIGHR Founder

London

We asked Molly:

Why did you start HIGHR?

After I had children while working in beauty, I started rethinking everything.  Like a lot of women, I was constantly screening products for safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I was shopping more consciously across the board and was looking for makeup that didn't exist. I wanted super clean, luxury products that didn't cost double what the product usually costs. I also became deeply concerned about the climate crisis and the environment to which we would leave our kids and was looking for ways to get involved.  

When it was time to go back to work after my second maternity leave, I knew that if I had to leave my kids at home that I wanted to be doing something better with my time, and contributing to something positive.  That’s when I set out to rebuild a beauty brand that had a higher purpose.

What is your approach to clean beauty?

How is HIGHR doing anything different in terms of sustainability?

How I wear HIGHR

#

BRAVADO

This is the first shade we created. We added a touch of terracotta brown to it so its a wearable, 70s style red. It also photographs true to colour, instead of going bright under a flash.

TRUEST

Truest is a cool rose that's ultra flattering. This shade looks amazing blotted for an effortless wash of color, or deepened with a couple swipes. If you feel like you have too many pink lipsticks, definitely try Truest (and let me know what you think!).

CHILTERN

The white t-shirt red lipstick. For me this candy red is a fun daytime red, and I wear it with barely any other makeup. I also love it in the evening with a warmed up eye. Inspired by my favorite street in London.

CHATEAU

A 90s supermodel nude with an added bit of warmth so that it never looks muddy. When we finally got this color right it was with me 24/7. It's an everyday staple, and my out to dinner go-to when I do more of an eye.

MERCY

Mercy is the grown-up pink. It has an equal balance of warm and cool tones, and is an amazing "my lips but better" lipstick. I wear all of these colors without much other makeup, but this one is an immediate pick me up on an otherwise bare face.
