Eyebrow gel: the key to making your redhead brows look complete. This easy-to-use makeup product should be in every redhead’s makeup bag. Eyebrow gel can be used by itself or together with a favorite brow pencil or powder.
Why we love eyebrow gels:
1. Eyebrow gels come in clear or red/auburn/brown/blonde shades. Over the years, many makeup companies have started to add auburn shades to their gel lineup –– and we couldn’t be happier.
2. If you’re pressed for time or prefer the casual ‘I don’t fill in my eyebrows look’, then you can just use an eyebrow gel to quickly spruce up the brow with a clear or light auburn shade. It keeps the eyebrow hair in place and makes the look clean. Make sure to stroke the brow hairs in the direction of the hair.
3. After filling in your brows with a pencil or powder, you can softly brush the tinted gel (color of your choice) on each brow to complete the look. This will hold the brow hairs together and provided for a bolder look.
