The Best Blonde Brow Product?

The Best Blonde Brow Product

Naturally my hair is brown that darkens in the Winter and lightens in the Summer - at the moment my baby hairs are now white as is all the hair surrounding my crown. Despite being a natural brunette I have very light eyebrows and eyelashes - great when you are a fan of bleaching your hair not so much when it comes to finding the perfect brow products.

For a moment let's forget about the medium of brow products - I'll happily use a gel, powder, pencil or a combination if the shade is flattering. The problem with blonde aimed eyebrow products mainly is the shade - I've lost count to how many I have bought that are far too warm toned to be passed off as natural, then there are the others which are so dark you'd assume they were aimed at brunettes. I've honestly yet too find a blonde specific eyebrow pencil or gel that I'd deem too light. I like my brows to be as natural as possible too light or ashy has yet to happen!

I have found some close but no cigar products along the way - Hourglass Arch Brow in Blonde; a great waxy pencil that works best of full brows and really does need to be blended with the spoolie to avoid harsh lines - on sparse areas or brows this can appear a little full on due to the deep tone of the pencil. Illamasqua Precision Brow Gels in Awe is also a good choice - a light, ashen almost grey toned brow gel that with the right hand can appear entirely natural. Oddly on my skin tone this leans a little too grey, something I did not bargain for at all. Lastly if in a pinch I have been known to fill my brows with Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow which for all intents and proposes is the perfect blonde brow shade for my skin tone and hair colouring - the problem is that it does not stay put, regardless of how I set it.

For a while I did tinker with tinting my brows so that purchasing brow products was a little easier - the problem is I don't like a strong brow. It looks too harsh on my face and does the opposite of what I had hoped for - maybe I'm just too demanding!

Now I know I'm not the only one in this boat, lots of people have fair eyebrows and do a great job of filling and shaping so there has to be a fitting solution out there for me! So I ask you fellow blondes: past, present or simply those with light brows - what do you use or what would you recommend to a friend? I need all the help I can get right now.

  1. My favourite is the rather famous Anastasia brow wiz, i love this because I can easily create hair stroke lines and create a fuller brow that looks natural and it stays in place all day. I've been wanting to try the Hourglass one for a while so may have to give it a try.

  2. I find the pencil end of the Soap&Glory Archery perfect for my blonde brows. I'm not bleached though, so not sure about the warmth issue. Worth a test on your hand next time you're in Boots!

      PS I meant the original Archery with the pencil and stain double ends

  6. Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Pomade in Taupe. It's spot on for my light blonde highlighted hair and medium blonde eyebrows, nice and ashy and not too dark. Think the "Blonde" shade is a little warmer if Taupe is too ashy. Stays all day. I will never use anything else. Holy Grail.

  7. I use Omega eye shadow by MAC and a 208 brush also from MAC, I'd love to try the ABH Brow Whiz but I worry it'll be a little warm for me xxx

    1. I used omega for years it was a really good shade for me. Now I use the Brow Wiz in Taupe. It IS a TAD dark but not so much that I don't use it. I find it easier and faster to apply. Mac also makes a pencil called Fling that is a good shade. If you like Omega you might like both of these....hope that helps. Cheers!

  8. This sounds like a really great one for blonde hair. I don't need it, but my mom has been on the search for YEARS for a great one and still hasn't found it. I don't believe she's tried this one so I'll send it her way!

  11. I have light brown hair but Anastasia Beverly Hills does it for me! The Tom Ford brow pencils are awesome as well, although the price is eye watering.

  12. I know this struggle all too well as a natural blonde but Anastasia Beverly Hill's Brow Wiz in Taupe is the one for me. Perfectly cool toned & can be used for both natural & bold looks.

  13. Try using a mac eyeshadow and angled brush. I've always found that it gives the most natural, soft finish and I think if you go into a mac store or visit a mac counter you can ask someone working there what shade they would recommend for you! Also, if you are very careful and only fill in the sparse areas, I use the revlon colour stay eyeshadow quad in addictive and that works really well too! x

  15. I just posted a round up of my fave eyebrow products for blondes http://www.beautywanderer.com/2015/06/the-best-brow-products-for-ash-blondes.html no spamming I promise! But I can really recommend each of them, particularly good if you are looking to avoid warm tones :)

  16. I face a similar light eyebrows issue, so I totally feel that pain. I have red hair and most brow products aimed at redheads assume I'm auburn or deep. I'm not, I'm bordering light brown/blonde.

    It's been mentioned a few times already but the Brow Wizz in Taupe was my perfect match and I didn't need to blend with a spoolie (but still do). It's varr expensive though!
