Video: Kristie Streicher Teaches Us How to Create Feathered Brows


Have you ever wanted feathered brows? You know, the brow shape that Adele, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kiernan Shipka have-soft, slightly arched, and naturally full. Well, now you can have them. In our latest video, Kristie Streicher, celebrity brow shaper and head of brow maintenance at L.A.-based salon Striiike, walks us through her quick and easy steps for creating full, beautiful brows. The trick? Working with what you have. For Streicher's step-by-step instructions on how to groom your brows, keep on reading.

1. Start with a clean palette: Use a gentle cleanser like Estelle & Thild Bio-Cleanse 3-in-1 Cleansing Foam ($31) and wipe off any makeup that might collect in the brow area.

2. Brush up your brows: Starting where your brows need more fullness, take a tinted brow gel like Lancôme Sourcils Styler Brow Gel ($27) and brush your brows in an upward motion. Streicher says this “not only shows you where the little holes and sparse areas are, but it makes them immediately look a lot more filled in and fuller.”

3. Fill in remaining sparse areas: While holding your skin taut, use the tip of Eyeko Brow Liner ($19) to add a few light strokes throughout your brows. The final result: full, natural-looking brows.
