I've always had light(ish) brown hair highlighted blonde so having darker tones means I have gotten away with filling my eyebrows in their natural colour which is quite dark.
Recently I've been building my highlights up so I'm now fully blonde and my eyebrows look ridiculous , I've tried using lighter product but you can see how much it doesn't match my dark eyebrow hair and it looks so silly!
I'm wanting to make my actual eyebrows lighter so that my lighter product matches and so that they suit my light hair , I would like them to remain a little darker than my hair as can't imagine peroxide blonde eyebrows would look attractive. How can I achieve this?
I know I could have simply googled this but would prefer been there done that kind of answers, if that makes sense!
Yep I'm blonde with dark eyebrows and have had compliments. Each to their own though. There are ways to lighten them if you feel that they look too much? Really thick drawn on black eyebrows (like marker pen) that some young girls now have look ridiculous so I'm sure your natural ones will be much more subtle!
Don't attempt. At worst you can go blind or get nasty chemical burns near delicate eye area (it's illegal for salons to color eyebrows here) or you could end up with brassy orange brows, or they could break off. I speak from experience. Don't attempt yourself. Dark brows are hot
Okay definitely taking the advice to leave them be as knowing my luck something would definitely go wrong!
I wish I could just leave them without filling them in but I have some unfortunately placed scars which makes them grow in really patchy and I love using make up , maybe I will instead pop along to a nice beauty counter and ask them too match my perfect colour and show me how to fill them in very lightly and more natural looking so I don't look too crazy with my dark intense eyebrows and blonde hair!
(Im not too great at it so will admit can look very intense when I catch myself in the mirror come afternoon after shoving my face on quickly in the morning , lol!)
I use Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil so maybe that's where I'm going wrong , heard great things about benefit eyebrow products and there's a counter not too far from me I will definitely pop in on my day off this week!
