It's so easy!

I barely have brows. I am also guilty of over-tweezing my arches during the early 2000s. I regret that habit with all my heart, and I'm now suffering the consequences. So, I've been creative in finding ways to make my kilay look fuller.

After so much trial and error, this is the routine that finally helped me reach my bushy-eyebrow dreams! I discovered this after watching many pro makeup artists on YouTube and by spying on celeb MUAs during photo shoots. Read on if you want to learn the magical step.

Here's the secret: You need to brush up the hairs with clear eyebrow gel BEFORE the whole kilay routine. This method creates an illusion of thicker, feathery brows and a lifted face—like I was born with a full set of arches. I find that filling in with a pencil alone creates a flat finish, which is far from natural-looking at all.

After brushing the hairs up, I draw thin strokes on the sparse areas using a slim eyebrow pencil or eyebrow ink. This step is essential in creating soft, natural-looking kilay.
