Honoree Spotlight with Kristie Streicher: Brows, Beauty & Microfeathering

Honoree Spotlight with Kristie Streicher: Brows, Beauty & Microfeathering

Meet Kristie Streicher. Co-founder of STRIIIKE and known for her signature Feathered Brow technique. Kristie is changing the way that people view and experience their brows. She has a devoted clientele and a gorgeous studio in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. Read on to learn her insider secrets to keeping brows natural, healthy and full.

 

Why do we need Microfeathering in our lives?

Microfeathering is my conception of Microblading. Microfeathering is typically used on areas of the brow that are surrounded with natural hair. Gaps and sparsely covered areas can be filled in, resulting in the most natural look possible. Microfeathering should ideally mimic native hair, being of appropriate length and orientation to seamlessly complement the natural hair growth. The color should be closely matched to eyebrow hair color, not to head hair color.

 

Who is the ideal candidate?

Microfeathering is ideal for those who have sparse areas, scars or holes in the eyebrow and are looking for a zero maintenance perfectly and naturally filled in brow. The goal of this technique is to create a stronger, longer lasting, natural eyebrow without having to use pencil to fill them in, which can be the least fun part of doing make-up but is by far the most impactful. Your brows should also not "walk in the door before you do” but should frame the face in a flattering way. 

 

What is your brow routine?

In terms of grooming, I don’t tweeze them ever but I’ll occasionally trim and tint them as needed. I use an all natural growth serum called Brow Food and I never leave the house without my clear strong hold brow gel!

 

Best tip to get brows that look like yours?

Don’t over do it! By it, I mean keep tweezing, trimming and grooming to a minimum. Let them be wild! I call it messy model brows. Use clear strong hold brow gel and brush them up. This will help them to look more full and natural.

 

Some people don't know that you got your start in the beauty industry as a makeup artist. What are your staple/ favorite beauty products?

I really like the new Hourglass tinted brow gels. The colors are spot on and the brush gives the perfect application without the sometimes messy application of other gels. I’m also really loving the Mineral foundation (SPF 30 with twist-brush) from Sweat Cosmetics. It gives just enough coverage with a radiant finish. The zinc formula is non-comedogenic. I keep it in my hand bag and touch up whenever I need a little extra protection from the sun. Another favorite is The Celestial Bronzing Veil from Kevyn Aucoin. It’s the perfect way to get that sun- kissed contoured dimension in the cheeks.

What is your favorite Honor MD product?

Stimulate retinol cream which I don’t use very often, because I like to be in the sun, but when I do I see a difference. I am also loving the [Treat] glycol pads and [Refresh] eye cream!!!
