In a society obsessed with eyebrows, it can seem like having the perfect brows is the most important thing in the world. Its not. But it can be a nice bonus. If you are blessed with naturally good eyebrows, finding the right eyebrow pencil is as simple as just matching it to your brow colour. But if, like me, your natural brows are almost nonexistent, you have to start with practically a blank canvas.
There are two basic rules for eyebrow colour.
- If you have light hair, select a colour one or two shades darker than your hair colour
- If you have dark hair, select a colour one or two shades lighter than your hair colour
Its that simple.
For example, when I was blonde I used Mac’s eyebrow pencil in Lingering
I went two shades darker than my blonde hair.
And now my hair is mostly brown, I can use the same shade of pencil because it is one shade lighter than my current hair colour!
So that worked out pretty well.
And remember, these are just guidelines. If you want blue eyebrows, have blue eyebrows. Its only eyebrows.
