Let’s talk about those redhead eyebrows.
One of the biggest beauty challenges for redheads are the eyebrows. Many natural redheads either have light copper or blonde-white eyebrows –– both appearing nearly invisible. Because shaped and defined redhead eyebrows frame eyes and enhance the face, redheads often have to “fake it” to make brows look normally shaped and colored in. It’s easy to do if you have the right ‘redhead friendly’ products.
Here are a few tips to make the most of your redhead brows:
1. The Fuller the Better
Though your brows may be light in color, a thicker shape will frame your face better and will be easier to fill in with pencils or powders, so be sure to never over tweeze. ‘
Redhead Friendly’ Tip: Simply tweeze only the stray hairs outside of your brow’s natural shape or have a professional esthetician expertly shape your brows to best suit your face shape.
2. Try a Tint
Tinting redhead brows a *slightly* darker shade than your ravishing red locks can significantly cut down on primping time, and will give you a natural look that will stay put for several weeks. Most spas offer safe brow tints designed especially for the sensitive eye area that are applied by trained and licensed technicians.
‘Redhead Friendly’ Tip: Do not match your brows exactly to your red hair. Eyebrows should always be a shade or two lighter than your hair.
3. Pencil Me In

4. Set Eyebrows in Place
Whatever method you choose to darken and shape your brows, a great trick used by many stylists and makeup artists is to use a clear mascara to brush and set your eyebrows. Try How to be a Redhead’s Finally Have Brows if you want anbrow product to keep those hairs in place all day.
