Today I want to show you what I am currently using to fill in my eyebrows. I've received many questions about what I use, so I thought it was about time to share it with my fellow red heads. I have used numerous products for my brows, but right now I like to keep it simple. For daytime brows I normally just use my Catrice Eye Brow Stylist in 010 Blond but Brow'd. It has a slight hint of red, just enough to keep the brows in line with the hair. If you use products with too much red in them, it can look a bit clownesque.
When I want to fill in my brows for a stronger look (for photo shoots, concerts etc.) I tend to use matt powder eyeshadows/bronzers in combination with the pencil. MAC's 'Bamboo' and 'Texture' are good options when it comes to matt eyeshadows. If those are too red for you, you might want to try the Urban Decay 'Naked' palette, they have two colors which are great for brows; naked and buck. Then there is also a bronzer that I like to use and that is 'Laura Mercier's' Dune Bronzer. That is one of my most loved products because I also use it for eyeshadow as well as contouring. A great multi task products for all different shades of skin and great for redheads too!
A little tip about sharpening all make up pencils in general; I saw someone in my family use the 'Faber-Castell' pencil sharpener, which is basically used for the office. However, I have never gotten my pencils this sharp and without them breaking. The only disadvantage is that it is quite big, but it is super sturdy and won't mess up your make up bag like so many other sharpeners tend to do. I bought my sharpener at a german supermarket called 'Rewe'. It is around €3, but you can also buy it on Amazon.de, it even comes with some pencils, but those are for the office, not the beauty corner. ;)
