Brow Colour

Finding the correct brow colour to suit you can be a daunting task, it should be considered more of an art than a science, that being said there are a few useful tips to keep in mind when finding the correct shade that will compliment your look.

For those of you who have an abundance of brow hair it is generally recommended to try to match the colour of the hairs as closely as possible, this will help your brows look full and natural and will best blend in with the pre existing hair that you’ve been gifted with. With this being said if you are looking to go for a bolder look you could opt for an eyebrow colour that is a shade or two darker or lighter than your hair colour, it is a general rule that darker haired brunettes could opt for a shade or two lighter than their hair colour whilst lighter mousey hairs or blondes opt for a slightly darker shade to create a slight contrast and make a bold statement.

Those of you who have not necessarily been blessed with a nice thick set of brow hair may want to take a different approach to attempting to match the natural eyebrow hair colours, following much the same approach as above with dark haired individuals choosing one to two shades lighter than their hair colour on their heads, and lighter haired people using one to two shades darker, defining their brows, acting as a frame for the face and enhancing eye colour.

Ultimately it depends on how you want to frame your face, if you want to look like you were born with a natural set of thick healthy brows it is best to opt for softer shades that are not too harsh and match the hues of your natural brows. As stated it is not an exact science and what may work for someone will look unusual or out of place to another, experiment and find what works for your face, style and complexion, if the current trend in eyebrow colour does not naturally suit you then find what does work for you and make a statement.
