One of the most important makeup tricks every woman should master is how to do her brows properly. The kilay, after all, is one of the most important features of the face. Aside from its biological function to protect our eyes from dirt, research has found that they play a huge role in helping people recognize emotions and expressions.
So we might as well keep our brows consistently on point. Here, four life-changing tips to get TDF brows.
1. Use at least two to three shades of brow powders.
"That many?!" you ask. Yes! Mixing different shades of brow powders will add depth and dimension to your brows, making them look more natural. This is a trick celebrity makeup artists swear by!
Begin by using the middle shade to outline your brows. Then, take the lightest shade, and fill in the first half of your brows. Use the darkest shade to define the outer half and tail of your arches. Go back in with the middle shade to fill in any more sparse areas. Brush everything out with a clean spoolie.

2. Do your kilay last.
Put together your look first, then decide on how you want to do your brows after. For bolder eye looks, go for softer and lighter brows. But for casual, barely-there makeup, you can opt for brows that are a bit bolder.

3. Save time by using brow mascaras.
Brow mascaras are perfect for women who are always in a rush—we’re looking at you!—because it takes minimal effort to apply. It’s one of the easiest and foolproof ways to bulk up your arches with just one product. It will fill, define, and tame your brows with just a few strokes.
To ace your brow mascara game, groom your brows regularly. Also, choose a shade that’s one shade lighter than your natural hair color. That way, your brows won’t look too harsh.
