The Secret to Matching Your Eyebrows to Your Newly Red Hair

What's more fun than dyeing your hair red on a whim? Maybe giving your wardrobe an overhaul to match and choosing a new, coordinating makeup palette? While catching up your whole look to such a fab new 'do, don't forget to include your eyebrows.

Red Hair

Dye Theory

When you choose a bold hue like red, some colorists will offer to dye your eyebrows the exact same hue used on your hair, but beware. Look at a natural redhead and you’ll see her eyebrows are often blonde. They’re never a perfect match, like one might assume. Plus, since red shades fade so quickly, a dyed brow won't last long. Instead, turn to brow makeup for a shade that can be maintained daily.

Mix and Match

To create a color that will blend perfectly with your freshly minted redheaded look, mix blonde and auburn powders to find a soft hue that complements your hair color. Powders, like NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Cake Powder, work better than pencil because they look more natural and blend more softly into brow hairs. Finish with a gel to set. Our new favorite is Maybelline EyeStudio Brow Drama in Blonde.
