Microblading could be the semi-permanent solution to repairing over-tweezed brows or defining barely-there kilay. Unfortunately, the said procedure is expensive and can be a bit painful to go through.
Worry not, though. You can still get the feathery, bushy brow effect, DIY style. The key technique is to draw hair-like strokes on the sparse areas to mimic the appearance of real follicles. It takes practice, yes, but these products make it super easy to do!
Pencils, by far, are the easiest to use. This fine-tipped one allows you to draw thin strokes that mimic bushy brows. It lasts long, too—12 hours, how about that?
