Here is another awesome post from Genevieve Schatz rocker babe/indie frontwoman and killer of the style game, on coloring your brows to match your hair.
When I got hip to the world of colorful eyebrows I felt like my face became the most upgraded canvas for self-expression ever! Eyebrows are one of my favorite ways to communicate- they really set the tone. A furrowed brow, an inquiring brow, a concerned brow, a relieved brow- these are all beautiful and deserve to be any color you’d like them to be!
How to Dye Your Eyebrows to Match Your Hair
- The best way to match your brows to your hair color is to bleach your brows.
*Note: if you have not been educated on how to do this safely, PLEASE for the LOVE of the world and yourself and your delicate eyes and skin, go see a professional stylist.
- Apply a clear mascara to your brows.
- Find your desired color of eye shadow!
- Use a clean mascara wand or find a disposable mascara wand (at a makeup counter, sample area of a cosmetic store, or you can purchase some but they are very easy to clean so you only need 1 or 2) and gently roll the brush into the pot of eye shadow allowing it to pick up the pigment.
- Apply the eye shadow to your brows, gently brushing the pigment upwards and following the direction of hair growth!
*Note, if you are rocking pink or red or some other color that is hard to find in an eye shadow, go ahead choose a lip liner pencil because they are beautiful, bold and stay on even longer! Just gently fill in your brows in the direction of hair growth.
- Use makeup remover to clear away any loose pigment that might have gotten on your cheeks or any runaway liner that made you look like Frankenstein’s cousin. No worries.
- Experiment with this, get weird! Its already weird enough that you have felt compelled to change the color of your hair and eyebrows, so own it, will ya?
*Fun note, I went through a hot pink phase recently where I used a bright pink eyeliner on my brows everyday and there were some mornings when I left my apartment looking like a muppet. It was glorious.
All my love,
