When it comes to doing your makeup, there are quite a few areas you need to master. After learning how to color match your foundation and how to highlight, how to do brows should be next. In the winter our faces are often covered by scarves and gaiters to defend against the cold (and now protective face masks), making our eyes a big focus. Since your eyebrows can totally change your beauty look by framing your features, getting your brows just right is important for making the best impression. If you’ve recently colored your hair, you might be struggling to match your brows with your new hair hue (especially if you don’t want them to give away your natural hair color). But it doesn’t have to be a difficult process to do with eyebrow makeup—you just have to know the right techniques. So check out five factors you need to consider for coordinating your hair color with your eyebrow color so that you can get it right every time.
We hate to break it to you, but if you thought that your brows should perfectly match your hair, you might want to think again. In fact, your eyebrows should actually be darker than your hair color—unless your tresses are pitch black. This is what looks the most natural. So, if your hair resembles the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Medium Brown, use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil in Brunette to fill in your brows.That said, don’t go too dark though. Choose a color that’s only one shade darker than your mane to avoid a harsh contrast.
If you’ve decided to go platinum, note that bleach blonde brows won’t look natural and will hardly be visible. Stick to a cool-toned, blonde eyebrow pencil, like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil in Light Blonde.
Just as your undertones play a part in what makeup will look best on your skin tone, they also have a role in how you should coordinate your hair and eyebrow color. You’ll want to choose eyebrow makeup that has undertones that match those of your hair color. This is especially the case for black hair—if your eyebrow pencil has warm undertones, it can make your brows appear orange. Simply put, if your hair color has cool undertones, your brow color should have cool undertones. For example, pair the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Natural Black or a similar color with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil in Black.
If you’re a redhead, you may find that eyebrows identical to your hair color don’t look natural—and that’s normal! People with red hair may find that shades of brown are better suited for their brows. Just make sure to choose a pencil that has warm or cooper undertones to complement your mane. The L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil in Light Brunette is a great eyebrow color match for someone with auburn-colored hair.
Like we said, your eyebrows should be darker than your hair color—with one exception. Those with black hair may find a deep black color to appear too harsh, depending on the look they’re going for. If that’s something you can relate to, you may prefer a softer brow. This means you can use a soft black or dark brown pencil to shape your eyebrows, instead of a stark black. Try the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel in Dark Brunette.
It’s understandable that if you have gray hair you might not want to sport gray eyebrows, and that’s okay. This light color likely won’t be as noticeable against your skin and will prevent you from getting that prominent brow look most of us desire. Instead, try an ashy blonde or brown pencil that’s one to two shades darker than your gray hair.
