MEET MOLLY

HIGHR Founder

London

"I worked my way up from the makeup counter to the board room, during a 15 year career spanning two continents - working for the biggest beauty brands on the planet.  After having my two children, I set out to build a better future by creating a better way forward in an industry I love - beauty."

We asked Molly:

Why did you start HIGHR?

After I had children, I started rethinking everything.  Like a lot of women, having children made me start shopping more consciously and looking for cleaner products across the board.  I also became deeply concerned about the climate crisis and the environment to which I would leave them 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 to go to work that I wanted to be doing something good with my time, and contributing to something positive.  That’s when I set out to re-build 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 I ran out of my tube within a few weeks. 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.
