So….red eyebrows! I have been looking into the secret of it forever to avoid dyeing my brows as much as possible. I first began filling my brows in with “Fever” blush by MAC, which is the perfect burgundy and literally looks exactly like my hair color.
However, I am a fan of pencils to fill in my brows because I don’t like to have to have an angled brush, a shadow, a spray bottle, etc… just to get my brows filled in. I like to get on with my makeup as simple and quick as I can, since I fill my brows in every single day! It seems a bit of a hassle for me personally when I could just simple use a pencil and move on with my look. I also love the control the pencil gives me when redefining my shape and the strong edges.
If you are a fan of a more natural brow, shadow is definitely recommended, but not necessary. When filling in with a pencil, simple brush through afterward and it will soften the intensity.
For these brows, I used a bright red lip liner. It’s tricky to fill in with a lip liners consistency, but possible… there is just a bit of clean up involved.
I first brushed through a bit of foundation through them then lined with the lipliner. I then took my brown eyebrow pencil and shaded in with that as well to darken the red. MAKE SURE YOU SET YOUR BROWS! I set mine with Fever by MAC. I then used Makeup Forever’s Full cover concealer to clean up and then brushed through them. *Trick* is to spray some hairspray on your brow brush to help keep the hairs in place!
My favorite trick with these brows, since I normally have my brows my natural dark brown color, is to fill them in this bright when my hair is FADING and I am in desperate need for a dye job! Yup. Red brows intensifies the look of red hair and makes it stand out more. This helps me last a bit longer without worrying about needing to dye my hair asap.
