Bow to the brow queen, Kristie Streicher. The LA-based beauty pro is revered for her ability to turn even the skimpiest of brows into a fluffy yet elegant pair. With over twenty years of experience and clients including Emily Blunt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rachel Weisz — and just about everyone else in LA — it’s pretty obvious why we picked her to join our Green Goddess Guide series.
Kristie can usually be found at Striiike, the Beverly Hills studio she shares with her sisters Ashley (who does hair) and Jenn (who does makeup). Kristie’s claim to fame is her trademarked Feathered Brow technique. The innovative and totally natural process brings overplucked arches back to a state of being full and lush. Kristie’s sorcery can now be channeled at home with her new Essentials Eyebrow Grooming Kit — a perfectly curated toolbox that includes access to exclusive brow training tutorials from Kristie.
Bold brows started making a comeback in the past few years as people have gravitated more and more towards embracing natural beauty. A well-crafted pair frames our face and works like the ultimate accessory, one that requires little else to look polished. Kristie’s own face is a perfect example; we love her simple yet sophisticated approach to beauty — and her A+ picks for the ultimate beauty capsule.
From a French toner to German night cream, and regular visits to the Korean spa, we’re loving all the ways Kristie keeps her glow game strong. Gather inspo galore below…
If I only have five minutes to get ready, I...
Beauty obsession of the moment:
Julisis Pearl Rose Hydra Pearl Mask — it smells like a thousand roses. I put a thin layer of this on my day off and run all my errands. It has the most beautiful sheen to it and tightens the skin.
Chips and salsa.
Cosmic Matcha — it has beauty dust and collagen in it and is delicious.
Can't travel without:
My Bose noise canceling headphones and Hourglass Dark Brunette Volumizing Gel.
For ultra-glamorous effect:
Hourglass cream highlight/contour/blush palette (called Sunset) applied with a damp Beauty Blender.
Lip product I rely on:
Beauty tool I can’t live without:
Weirdest beauty habit:
Using lip balm to hold brows in place instead of brow gel. It holds them against the skin making them look fuller and is matte.
Always in my evening clutch:
Lip balm — specifically Daydreams Lip Balm packed with six nourishing organic oils and smells divine.
In the shower, I...
Do a vinegar rinse to clarify scalp and hair once every two weeks.
Once a month, I...
Go to a Korean spa and scrub with several rounds of thermotherapy — six minutes in the hottest sauna, then two minutes in the cold plunge pool, then rest at room temperature for three minutes and repeat. This helps a ton with circulation, it’s detoxifying and also strengthens the immune system.
Product that changed my skin:
Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Toner — my skin is visibly brighter and I have less blackheads.
I’m a soup person, so bone broth seasoned with miso topped with baby bella mushrooms, sugar snap peas, broccoli and bean sprouts for crunch and texture.
