It all starts with choosing the right shade.
It all starts with choosing the right shade.
If you have blonde eyebrows, then you know that filling your brows doesn’t always come easy. Of course, blondes can fill in their brows too, it just comes down to finding the right products and shades for your lighter hair. With different eyebrow products to choose from like eyebrow pencils, eyebrow gels and eyebrow mascaras, we’re going to narrow it down and make the brow filling process easier for you by showing what your best choices are. L’Oréal Paris offers a range of eyebrow products in shades like blonde, dark blonde and taupe to keep the options open for fair-haired beauties. Below, we’re sharing three different products for blonde eyebrows, what type of eyebrows they work best for and a step-by-step tutorial for how to use each one.
When you have blonde hair, look for blonde, dark blonde, soft brown or taupe shades for your eyebrows. The goal is to fill them in without having them look unnatural or harsh. L’Oréal Paris has a range of brow products with a spectrum of shades so you don’t have to settle for something that isn’t just right.
All of that said, some with natural blonde hair don’t always have blonde eyebrows. In fact, it’s pretty common to have light brown brows or brows with a reddish tint. As for what color you should choose for your brow makeup, our answer is to always go with the color choice that you like best. Maybe that’s going for a darker blonde shade or maybe that’s going for a reddish shade to embrace your natural features.
If you dye your hair blonde, you likely have dark brows. You have the option to dye your brows to match your hair or to rock dark brows with a lighter mane. Many sport blonde hair with dark brows and it’s a really flattering and pretty look.
As a blonde, one option you have when it comes to filling in your brows is to use an eyebrow pencil. This is a good option if you have sparse brows or if you’re trying to enhance the shape. Try the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil in Light Blonde, Blonde, Dark Blonde or Taupe. Any of these shades can be used to precisely outline and evenly fill in blonde eyebrows.
Use the pencil to create your desired brow shape by making light, feathered strokes that define your brows. Pay special attention to the tails of your eyebrows as they can be a little darker and more defined than other areas.
Use the same light, feathered strokes to fill in your brows. Start by adding a few lines to fill in any sparse areas and then gradually add more to achieve your desired look.
Use the spoolie end of your eyebrow pencil to comb through your brows and create a seamless, blended look. To set the shape, brush a clear brow gel like the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Brow Topcoat, Waterproof Universal Transparent through your arches.
Another option for filling in blonde eyebrows is to use a tinted eyebrow gel. The L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel is a long-wear, waterproof eyebrow gel that makes the brows look thicker and offers and long-lasting look. Grab a tube in the shades Blonde or Dark Blonde and follow this easy three-step tutorial to give it a try.
Use the brow gel’s doe foot applicator to apply a small amount of product throughout your brows, focusing on any sparse areas.
Next, use the angled brush conveniently located on the other side of the spoolie included with the brow gel to create small hair-like strokes to outline and define the shape of your eyebrows and fill in sparse areas. Remember to use the brush very lightly and gently to keep the strokes natural-looking. This will help to avoid heavy, fake-looking, drawn-on brows.
Flip your angled brush over and use the spoolie end to brush through your brows and blend the brow gel with your brow hairs. A few extra seconds spent brushing your brows can make all the difference in whether or not you’re left with a natural-looking brow.
If your brows have a defined shape but lack volume, try tinted brow mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Volumizing 24H Wear Brow Mascara. It’s sort of like a brow gel and a brow pencil in one, but it adds thickness, and it’s great for achieving a bushy brow look with minimal steps.
Using a clean spoolie, brush through your brows to get every hair in a single direction before you reach for your brow mascara.
Use the Infallible Volumizing 24H Wear Brow Mascara in Blonde or Light Blonde to fill in your brows. Starting at the beginning of your brows, use small, upward strokes to coat each hair and boost volume until you reach the tail. The long-wearing formula is waterproof and smudge-proof to provide all-day volume.
Once you’ve applied the brow mascara, there’s not much left to do to your brows. If you want to emphasize their shape, use concealer like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage to clean up the area surrounding your brows to create an extra smooth finish.
