Eyebrows help frame your eyes and bring out your best facial features. To make that work, they have to be the right shape, size and color. Because these are all equally important factors, filling in your brows can be a little tricky.
The wrong color can make your brows look unnatural and that affects your overall look. Here is a great way to determine the right color and shade that will make your brows look naturally stunning.
Use Your Crowning Glory as a Guiding Light
They say a woman’s hair is her crowning glory. You need not look very far because your hair already serves as a basic guide in choosing the most natural shade for your brows. If your hair is dark brown or black, your safest option is a shade that is at least one to two shades lighter than your hair.
On the other hand, go one to two shades darker if you have blonde or light brown hair. This will help your brows stand out a little and have more definition. Taupe tends to work best with blonde hair or very light brown hair that has blonde highlights.
Red hair is a little different because you need to complement it with very light tones like light blonde or a toned-down brown. Whatever you do, do not match your brows with the exact color of your hair.
Complementing Your Skin Tone
You also need to factor in your skin tone. If you have light pinkish skin, choose a shade that looks a bit ashy so that your brows don’t look too yellow or orange. A light brown or light blonde will work perfectly as long as it’s ashy.
For those with olive skin, light to medium brown shades would work beautifully. They key is to make your brows stand out against your complexion.
Testing the Color
When in doubt, you can always test your eyebrow product on your skin. Apply it lightly on your cheek or right beside your brow. You will know that it’s the right shade if it doesn’t create too much contrast but still complements your skin tone.
Effortless Astonishing Eyebrows
If all these seem too much to remember, there is a way to just wake up with the perfect brows every morning without all the work. With eyebrow microblading, you can finally stop fighting with your eyebrows. Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement that looks astonishingly NATURAL and is far less expensive than eyebrow tattooing.
When looking for your microblading artist, make sure that you choose the ones who have been extensively trained. A good artist have eyes that can determine the right color and shade that would work best on you. Try to set up a consultation to find out if you are a great candidate for the treatment. And if not, here’s how you can find out if other techniques like Nano Strokes or Microshading is your best option.
