Your Ultimate Guide To Finding The Right Colour Eyebrow Makeup
Whether you just love the beauty world or you’re a real make-up enthusiast, when it comes to finding the perfect eyebrow powder, pen, pomade or pencil, you know things are never that easy. Finding the right eyebrow makeup color is one of the trickiest parts, ever.
With so many skin tones and hair shades out there (it isn’t just brown, nor is it just blonde — there are colors in between those colors!), choosing your eyebrow shade isn’t as simple as picking out something at the grocery store.
How to find the right eyebrow makeup shade for you
1. Mix ’em and match ’em
Who says you only have to use one eyebrow makeup product to fill and shape your brows? To give your brows some depth, use various eyebrow makeup products like brow powders and pencils. Using only one shade will make your brows look fake and blocky, so make them look natural by blending different but similiar shades. For instance, you could fill in your brows with a pencil, and then add depth by using a brow gel.
2. Go one shade lighter or darker
When in doubt, find a shade that’s lighter or darker than your natural hair color. If you choose a shade that’s exactly the same as your hair, you’ll look a bit weird. So, go either lighter or darker and see which color you prefer. Typically, people with dark hair go for lighter eyebrow makeup colors, while blondes go for darker colors.
3. Consider the undertones
Just like choosing your foundation, with your eyebrows, you also need to think about undertones. Your hair may be brown, but what kind of brown? Does it have golden highlights, or reddish ones? Or, do you have blonde hair that looks ashy instead of golden? Choose an eyebrow makeup shade that’s closest to your natural undertones so that your brows look more realistic.
The best eyebrow makeup color for blondes
People with ashy blonde, platinum, or champagne hair colors (think Elsa) may want to go for ashy brow pencils or powders like Dior’s Sourcils Poudre Powder Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde. But if you have hair that’s more golden or caramel (think Rapunzel), try a light taupey shade like Bobbi Brown’s Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil in Taupe.
The best eyebrow makeup color for brunettes
One misconception is that brunettes have it easy when picking an eyebrow makeup shade. Well, the thing is, while most eyebrow makeup products are brown, you can go wrong pretty easy. Go too light and there’s no point in even filling your brows in, but go too dark and you’ll have brows that look too bold and unnatural. People with ashy, light brown hair could go for products like Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown. Darker brunettes with redder tones can never go wrong with the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil in 4.
The best eyebrow makeup color for redheads
Red hair is the hardest to match. Not many people have naturally red eyebrows, and let’s face it, there aren’t many red eyebrow products out there. If you have light, strawberry blonde hair, go for golden blonde shades. But, if you have warmer red hair, auburn shades are perfect.
Save time… and money
