14 Beauty Essentials for the Kilay-Obsessed Girl
Obsessed with your brows? Well, you're not the only one, and very understandably so! We all know that those set of arches can make or break your entire look, so it's only right to give them the attention they deserve—or more specifically, the right products they need to keep 'em on point. For a brow game that’s always strong, we break down the essentials you need below.
TRY: 1-Benefit Cosmetics Brow Grooming Tweezer & Brush, Greenbelt 5; 2-Bobbi Brown Light Brow Kit, SM Mall of Asia
No amount of makeup can conceal your untidy arches. If you want to achieve the most promising results, the first thing on your to-do list should be to groom your arches, tweeze out those stray strands, and shape your brows accordingly. You'll be surprised how fresh you instantly look right after!
TRY: 1-L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Designer Pencil, Watsons; 2-MAC Penultimate Brow Marker, Rockwell Powerplant Mall; 3-Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil, Trinoma
Whether you prefer straight or high arched, defining the shape of your brows is a must. Don't worry too much if they don't look exactly alike. As they say, brows are not twins but sisters. So instead of trying to make them look identical, strive to keep them looking balanced and reasonably proportioned.
FOR FILLING IN
TRY: 1-TheBALM Brow Pow Eyebrow Powder, P1300, Sephora.ph; 2-Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil; 3-Chanel Brow Powder Duo, Rustan's
After shaping your brows, the next obvious step is to fill in those sparse areas. Instead of going for bold and heavily filled-in arches, use light feathery strokes to achieve the most natural effect. Remember: you should have fresh, effortless-looking results that seem au naturel rather than kilay with kanto.
TRY: 1-Benefit Cosmetics Ready, Set, Brow! Clear Brow Gel, Rustan's Makati; 2-MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set, SM Mall of Asia; 3-NARS Brow Gel, Alabang Town Center; 4-L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Chisel, Watsons
After all the work you've put into perfecting those brows, it's time to seal the deal! Set those strands in place using a brow gel for a more defined look that's not going to budge. You can even go for tinted ones to match your hair color or a clear gel formula that'll help you nail a no-makeup look.
TRY: 1-Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Primer, Sephora.ph; 2-Benefit Cosmetics Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer, BGC Central Square
Yep, there are actually primers especially dedicated to enhancing and extending the wear of your brow products! Just so you know, the one from Benefit even contains keratin and soy proteins known to help brows achieve a thicker, healthier, and fuller look. If you’re a true-blue kilay-obsessed girl, this should totally be part of your eyebrow routine.
