Many people believe that certain eyebrow products are for everyone. We’re here to tell you that’s not true. Different hair colors deserve different products. Once you’ve found your perfect shade, you’ll never want to use any other product. These are the best eyebrow products for your specific shade.
For Blonde Hair
If you have naturally light eyebrows, it can be hard to find a product with a light enough shade. However, brow experts suggest adding a slightly darker shade to your brows if you have blonde hair. This will make your hair stand out more. It’s best to choose a golden hue. Some great products to achieve this shade are Anastasia Beverly Hills’s Tinted Brow Gel in blonde and Glossier’s Boy Brow.
The tinted brow gel from Anastasia is perfect for blondes. It provides a subtle shade while also intensifying and adding volume to your brows. All you need is one stroke to get the perfect brow.
The Boy Brow from Glossier is the perfect brow product for blondes whose hair actually matches their eyebrows. This is for those blondes that have platinum hair and brows. Boy Brow is one of the few products that come in clear. It helps fill and shape your brows without the tint. This way, you can rock your natural brows.
We’d like to point out one thing if you plan on going blonde. For those that think they have to dye their eyebrows along with their hair, this is a no-no! First off, bleach near your eyes? Ouch! Second, bleaching your brows to match your hair won’t look too natural once the color in your hair starts to come back. Remember, it’s totally fine to have brows darker than your hair. Just don’t go too dark.
For Brunette Hair
In my opinion, it’s easier to find a good eyebrow product for brunettes. Most products have a range of hues in brown, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for just any product. Quality is definitely important. One of my favorite eyebrow product for brunette hair is Benefit’s ka-BROW! Cream-Gel.
The ka-BROW! Cream-Gel comes in eight different shades, so you’ll definitely find your perfect hue. If you’re not sure what your shade is, you can visit a Benefit Brow Bar for matching session. A brow expert will show you what shade and product are best for your brows.
For those that don’t have time to get their brows matched at a brow bar, you can visit Benefit’s website for pictures and tips on what shade to use. They have different shades of brunette hair color that you can compare to yours.
Another favorite brow product for brunette hair is Urban Decay’s Brow Box. Each box comes with two shades to help you fill your brows. You can use both shades to build up the volume or use one shade according to the specific color of your hair. Try the brunette betty shade for a bold look.
For Black Hair
If you have black or really dark brown hair, choosing the perfect brow product is essential. You don’t want to just use a black pencil to fill your brows. That would look too harsh. For those in this hair category, it’s best to build up color until you get the right texture and shade. Try Kat Von D’s 24-hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade in walnut or graphite.
Use the walnut shade for slightly lighter than black hair. Two to three coats should be enough to build up the color. You should use the graphite shade for midnight black hair. With this shade, one coat should be enough.
L.A. Girls’ Brow Pomade is also great for black hair. It comes in a soft black shade to blend in with your brows. I love this product because it’s water-resistant and doesn’t fade or smudge. It’s perfect for a long-lasting look.
For Red Hair
For my red-haired NYGals, I know that it can be difficult to find the perfect brow product; but don’t lose hope. There are some great products out there for you to choose from. Nars’s Brow Defining Cream will work best for those with auburn hair. It’s lightweight so it won’t create a harsh look. Choose the auburn shade for the best results.
Wunderbrow also has a shade for red hair. This brand has just recently got a lot of recognition for its brow powers. It can turn sparse eyebrows into bold brows. Wunderbrow also comes in every hair color so if you like it, you can recommend it to your girls.
