Gone are the days of Instabrows—perfectly filled-in arches that have zero dimension and texture. It was literally the dark ages of kilay. Now, it's all about the ~*natural*~ look. Enter: Feathery brows, aka the microbladed look. This style is all about making your brows appear as natural as possible by creating thin strokes, following your brow hairs' natural growth. The goal is to make it look like you were born with perfectly bushy arches.

As you can see from the photos above, the brow hairs are brushed up, creating a soft and natural effect. If you were born with bushy eyebrows, it would be reallyyyy easy for you to achieve this!  But what if you were born with light, almost invisible brows? Have no fear! As long as you are armed with the best products, you can still score the feathery brow look.

Soap + Brow Pomade

Looks like soap is life-changing! YouTube beauty guru Desi Perkins dipped a spoolie brush in a bar soap and used it to push the eyebrow hairs up. The bald spots were then carefully filled in with a brow pomade that matches her natural brow strands. While this method may require lots of practice and patience, the results are simply gorgeous!

    The Full Brow Brow Wax is a clear wax that defines each brow hair without leaving a white residue. It seals in the pigments of the pencil so your kilay looks good all day. It also has castor oil to naturally enhance your eyebrow's fullness.
