Matching eyebrow color to your eyes’ colour and your skin tone can be quite a technical process. Considering the great variety of hair colour, skin tone, base hair colour if the shade is mixed, such as in an ash blonde, and the colour or shade of your foundation, means that there are many variables.
There are some definite rules that you can be guided by that give you a good place to start from. To make the task of matching brow colour less demanding, watch some videos on your favorite beauty pages. Here’s how a well-known Beauty Adviser describes matching eyebrow colour with skin tone and eye color.
To match red hair, don’t try to find a perfect match for the skin tone which may have pink tones. An orange-colored brow does not compliment the features of a red-head. Instead go for “sandy” or ashy colors which will compliment both the eye and skin colours. For brunettes with dark eyes, choose a lighter shade of brown to contrast and define the brows. For brunettes with a lighter eye colour, choose a brown that is one or two shades darker than the natural colour. For blondes, don’t choose a light coloured eye brow tint that matches the blonde in your hair. Instead go for a slightly darker shade to define the brows.
10. Etude House Tint My Brows Gel 5g.
This product is based on the new concept of tinting or colouring the brows with a peel-off gel. Simply trim the brow and apply a generous amount of the product. Leave it to dry for at least two hours then peel the gel carefully off the eyebrow, starting from the outside of the brow, nearest to the ear. By varying the amount of time the gel is left on the brow, you can colour the brows a darker or lighter shade of the colour named on the product label. This is a really fantastic product for women with patchy or very light brows, that works well, is easy to peel off and gives great results.
