Bushy, brushed-up brows have been all the rage nowadays, and it seems like even Gen Z celebrities have gotten hooked on this trend. For example, He's Into Her actress Criza Taa is one young star who has mastered the art of the fluffy brow.
Since many people (including us!) got curious about Criza's everyday makeup routine, she recently posted a quick makeup tutorial to demonstrate how she achieves her signature arches! Plus, she even revealed the exact makeup products she swears by for her go-to look. Spoiler alert: Her faves are actually more affordable than you think!
For your easy reference, we break down Criza's beginner-friendly brow routine below:
1. Starting with a bare face, Criza brushes up her brows using a generous amount of brow gel. Criza stresses the importance of thoroughly combing through all your brow hairs with quick upwards strokes. "I'm putting a generous amount and binu-brush ko siya pataas. I suggest na damihan niyo talaga 'yung paglagay and make sure i-coat niyo lahat ng strands ng brows niyo para mag-last siya all day," Criza explained.
For a long-lasting hold that doesn't feel sticky, Criza uses the Strokes Brow Colorist in Lucid White. FYI, you can buy this cult-fave for only P358 online!

2. After fully coating her brows with gel, Criza uses the stem of the spoolie to flatten down her brow hairs so that they stick to her skin. According to her, this extra step will ensure that your kilay won't budge a single bit all throughout the day! She then lets her brows dry for a few seconds before proceeding with the next step.
3. With a light hand, Criza draws on hair-like strokes to fill in the sparse parts of her brows. "Ilalagay ko rin siya dito sa ends para magkaroon siya ng shape," she shared. "I-extend niyo 'yung ends para mas gumanda siya."
To create the illusion of defined arches, Criza swears by the Strokes Microblade Pen Perfector in Graphite. Like the previous product, you can try this out for less than P500.
