Naturally Astonishing Eyebrows: A Guide to Eyebrow Shades and Colors

By November 22, 2019Spotlight

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. These are all equally important factors which make filling in your brows 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.  

However, the results would greatly depend on the artist that you choose to microblade your eyebrows. It’s important that you take an in-depth look at an artist’s portfolio as well as the establishment or studio that they are affiliated with. Take a look at their Instagram profiles, where they took their microblading or PMU (permanent makeup) certification course, and where they took an apprenticeship.

You will see a great number of PMU artists these days, especially in places like Vegas, which has now become the microblading training hub of the country. Choosing the right artist – expertly trained and with extensive experience lessens the risk of poorly-done microbladed brows.

It’s important to set up an initial consultation with the artist to discuss your options. If they are knowledgable enough, they will be able to give you alternatives in the event that you are not a great candidate for microblading. Other options include microshading. This guide can help you further in choosing the right eyebrow enhancement for you. Talking to your artist will you a good idea if they have eyes that can determine the right color and shade that would work best on you.
