Redhead Brows

Hello Sweets,

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. ;)

I use the upper sharpener.

  2. Thanks for this. I was actually wondering how your eyebrows matched your hair colour. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

  3. Your hair looks gorgeous as always! I'm so jealous of this colour, I wish I was a redhead ... But I don't want to dye my hair, it's dark brown and I like the colour, but everytime I see photos of you I feel like getting my hair red :D
    Nice advice on eyebrows, the Catrice eyebrow pencil looks worth buying!

  5. Goh hier heb ik wat aan! Eigenlijk gebruik ik altijd gewoon het warm-bruine potlood van de Hema. Mijn haar is ook iets bruiner rood. Die slijper ga ik wel zoeken. Ik heb gewoon een metalen, maar inderdaad, de potloodjes verkruimelen waar je bij staat.

  9. I thought I only wore a pencil sharpener of Faber-Castell! Still want to know how you do your outlined eyes Simone! It's so beautiful.

  10. Lesly, they sell Farber-Castell products at places like Michaels and Office Depot. These are "art" colored pencils, very high quality for graphic designers, architects, etc. Look in the art section for them.

    That makes sense with the sharpener, as the pencils it's made for are very soft, blendable colored pencils used for design. I have a huge box of these pencils, used them all through college. Never thought of using the sharpener for make-up, I think I might try this :)

  11. Great! I'm gonna try this pencil out! Luckily, Catrice is sold here in Italy :)
    I'm a redhead too and I don't ever know which shade I should pick, so I always end up looking a little fake when it comes to eyebrows!
    Thanks a lot for the advice, Simone! xx

  12. Lovely! I need to find for darker eyebrows! I feel like my eyebrows need to pop out more! Not too much though. Simone, I was wondering if you knew any good foundation/cover ups? My skin is light but not too pale. Hugs from las vegas!

  16. Great tips. Thanx from one ginger to another.

  17. It's a great post since I wanted tips about coloring the eyebrows for a long time now, but I'd like to know which pencil do you use when your hair gets brighter because the pencil you showed is for a slightly darker hair. Finding pencils for your eyebrows when you're a redhead it's an impossible thing to do! :(

  18. Simone, can you do a tutorial for women who wear eye glasses? What make up works best for them? I wear glasses and have no idea what colors I should use on my eyes or even what makeup or lipstick to use. That would be so awesome. Thanks you :)
