Say hello to customised brows! Obsessed with Brow Artistry, American-born makeup artist, Elizabeth has over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, television, and print. As a former National Artist and Trainer for Laura Mercier, Elizabeth was trained in brow architecture and theory by some of the top tier names (including Laura Mercier herself!). HighBrow refuses to use stencils, so each brow is custom designed, strand-by-strand, based on the architecture of the client’s face and their personal style. Sounds pretty ideal to us! Elizabeth offers four different blading and shading techniques, so clients can achieve the best brow for their lifestyle. Looking for a recommendation? The Signature Brow is a combination of Microblading and the Ombré Powder Brow – and there’s a reason it’s the hottest thing in Hollywood right now…
