11 Professional Makeup Artists Reveal Best Tips For Perfect Brows
We all want different things when it comes to our eyebrows. So instead of telling you exactly how to do yours, we think it only makes sense to give you as many options as possible.
Ahead, 11 pro makeup artists reveal their best tips for achieving your best brows ever. Who knows? Your new holy grail brow trick could be one of them!
1. Jigs Mayuga
"Strive for symmetry and balance instead of trying to achieve an exact replica of both brows. Remember your brows are supposed to be sisters, not twins."
2. Jason Delos Reyes
"Like skin, eyebrows need to be exfoliated, too—it can stimulate hair growth. You can use eyelash enhancer serum for your eyebrows too."
3. Mac Igarta
"Everyone's obsessed with thick brows 'cause it’s the trend today but TBH, it's not for everyone. Embrace the [brows] you have right now. Try correcting the brows rather than drawing new ones. Just fill in the sparse areas and brush your brows upward to have a lifted face effect. With the ECQ you may wanna try to let the hair on the sparse area grow, too. The easiest way, though, is microblading. It's life changing."
4. Mikka Marcaida
"Stop overplucking. Thick natural brows are very in. If you are not blessed with lots of hair, fake it using an eyebrow pen and mimic [strands with] hair-like strokes. Finish it off with a good brow mascara or hairspray to hold it in place."
5. MJ Bornales
"Stop filling out your eyebrows heavily with one single stroke. Use a flicking motion in the direction where your hair grows. Do not over extend the tail of your eyebrows. Doing so will create a droopy effect and will make you look sad."
6. Slo Lopez
"For me building technique is super important versus product. How you hold the brush and control the pressure of your lines during application really matters to get the results you want. Also, brushing your brow hairs up and down with a spoolie to check for sparse spots and get a clear idea of the shape."
7. Justine Navato
"Use a retractable brow pencil with a fine tip or a well sharpened pencil to draw natural hair like strands. For more definition use an eyebrow pen."
8. Mark Qua
"I love coating the hairs with clear mascara after defining or filling the brows since it gives more life to the brows. It also sets them in place."
9. Anthea Bueno
"Apply brow mascara first. Comb brows into place after this you will see where the actual sparse areas are. Draw on those areas with short hairlike strokes and voila, natural looking brows. That’s my trick so I don’t overdo brows."
10. Sydney Matterson
"For a feathered look that’ll last all day, use an eyelash adhesive [as brow gel]."
11. Nikki Duque-Martinez
"Use eyebrow mascara that has fibers to fill in your brows easily. And then, just brush them up."

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.
Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.
And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.

Hello, I'm Isabel and I'm a foodie from the South. I love trying out new dishes and pastries in the Metro while I ask myself if it's worth the hype. During this pandemic, I've decided to keep my foodie dreams alive by supporting my friends and small food businesses.
Aside from ordering from them, I've also created my own food blog via Instagram to express my thoughts and positive reviews about them to somehow help spread the word of their food and how other people should try it. At the end of the day, we are all helping one another through this difficult time by having multiple coping mechanisms - others to cook or bake while I write a review about what I eat.
Check out my food blog on Instagram @perdiviews and feel free to send me a message so I can collaborate with you soon!
It's not making sense. Maybe, it is. Everything is so blurry and vague. You can't seem to fathom what's happening. You're lost and searching- searching for the meaning behind what ifs and what could have beens. But life, we give meaning to life as if it's a beautiful paradise. Indeed it is.
But why we feel so gloomy, so empty? It seems like no light is passing through our soul. We're wounded. Hoping for healing. That's because, we're living. We celebrate life but we also fight for it. You feel all the pain, because you're living. You're not just alive, you're living. You can make it through all the storm and darkness. Wishing you well, Marj.
