5 Common Kilay Mistakes You Probably Don't Know You're Making

Are you guilty of any of these?

The quest to get perfect brows daily is a long process—there are threads, razors, growth serums, pencils, powders, and pomades involved. But because we're all human, sometimes we make mistakes without even knowing them! Read on to see if you're guilty of these common kilay no-nos:

By far the most common mistake; we know it's an extra step, but doing this will ensure your face-framers look #onfleek all day! And don't you want that?

Choosing brow products with 'red' in them

A lot of Asian brow products have red or warm undertones in them, and we're here to tell you that you should avoid them. If you look at your brow hairs you'll see that they're actually on the grey-ish black side. So to make them look as natural as possible, go for cooler-toned shades!

Your kilay won't absorb the product and it will just make them feel sticky and oily! If you plan on doing your brows that day, avoid massaging your skincare products on the area.
