We met with brow expert at Kate Somerville and celebrity makeup artist, Stevi Christine, to learn how to do a fun new look for spring and summer! Stevi is best known for her incredible line of brow products, NaturallyBy. Including a brow pencil and a brow filler, they are easy to use, long-lasting, and beautifully designed.
She sat down with our gorgeous model, Lauren, and studied her face and skin-tone to choose the perfect color palette. She was deciding between pink, purple, blue, or green. She wanted to achieve a gorgeous pop of color on the eye while still looking sophisticated and chic. I was telling her how the only dramatic eye I know how to do is either brown or black, so she decided to show us how to do a smoky, sexy, green eye! This excited me, because when I think of spring colors I picture them more daytime and very light instead of achieving a sexy, but bright look. If anyone can do it, it’s Stevi.
She started out by giving Lauren a clean, beautiful base. Keeping it simple on the face so that we could really focus on the eyes. Then, she started doing her classic perfect brow, using NaturallyBy products of course. She used her highly perfected plucking technique to clean up Lauren’s brows while keeping them thick and beautiful. With Lauren’s dark brows, Stevi used her Detailed Eyebrow Definer in Dark and began carefully filling them in while keeping them thick and beautiful. This is Stevi’s most sought after and requested service, so watching her work was absolutely incredible. Her brows are worth every dollar! Stevi took her time, patiently and meticulously working on every single detail of Lauren’s brows. Once they were absolute perfection, she moved onto the green eyes!
To get this look, Stevi actually used a green eye liner, not shadow. To achieve the smokey look, she blended beautifully, layering more and more liner until she achieved the very dramatic pop she was aiming for. She used “Undercurrent” PearlGlide Intense Eye Liner by MAC, carefully blending the creamy liner further and further up Lauren’s eyelid. She used the same eye liner on her lower lash line, blending with a small brush to outline her eyes and give her a sexy look. After blending and perfecting the look, she finished up with two coats of mascara by Clarins. If you are wanting a sexy, smoky eye but you’re sick of your classic black or brown, this is an unique and gorgeous alternative.
Afterwards, we got to sit down with Stevi and ask her a few questions:
What makes you feel beautiful:
My husband. I know it’s cheesy but it’s true! If we are speaking more externally, then I’d have to say shoes. They always seem to make me happy.
What is the one product in your bag everywhere you go:
My eyebrow filler! It has dual usage, as an eyebrow pencil and also eyeliner or shadow. It’s perfect for traveling or on the go, and super easy to use.
How do you relax?
I love yoga, sleeping in on Sundays, and hanging out with friends.
