Here's how to choose the right eyebrow shade for your colouring

'Cos black brows and blonde hair isn't always the idea

Most Popular

It's 2016 and we live in a world that's obsessed with eyebrows. Whether it's preening your arch to perfection or fillin' them in so they're looking fleeky - our brows have quickly become our no.1 most loved thing on our face. And the obsession ain't going nowhere fast. 

So to help you in the quest to achieving the ultimate brow game, here's some things to look out for when picking the right pencil for your colouring - 'cos when it comes to brows, one shade definitely doesn't fit all.

Blondes

Blonde haired babes might like to go a few shades darker than their natural brow or hair shade for a bit more definition- but having super light hair with totally black brows isn't necessarily the end game for all. Blondes have two options when it comes to picking the right shade - you could either opt for an ashy shade, which will give you a super natural light brown colour, or go for a reddish undertone that will warm up the rest of your complexion. 

We like: bareMinerals Brow Powder in Pale/Ash Blonde, £14.00 or Eylure Defining & Shading Brow Crayon in Blonde, £6.45

Brunettes

If you're brunette, you might want to stick with something a little softer than your hair colour - to stop your brows looking too harsh. Even if you've got super dark brown or black hair, mixing together a black eye shadow with a brown eye pencil will leave your brows looking killer - not crazy overdone.

Similarly to blondes, you could either go ashy or warm when choosing a brow shade - but to embrace your hair colour the most, we think sticking to a warm reddish undertone in your eye pencil looks the most natural against your skin. 

We like: Maybelline New York Brow Satin in Mahogany Red, £5.99 or NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Auburn, £5.00
