Soft, Natural Brows for Redheads

A few fortunate redheads (especially the auburn Strawberries) have medium-to-dark eyebrows, but the vast majority of us have pale ones. Mine are a very light blonde and a bit sparse. When shopping for brow products, I like to get a variety so that I have different options for particular looks. Some days I want dramatic, some days I want them natural.

Today I’m going to show you what I use for my everyday look. My hair is strawberry blonde so mixing one red product and one blonde gives me a natural look.


First, I use Wet N Wild Color Icon Brow Pencil in Ginger Roots. I love the soft, waxy texture. No hard pencils here! The color is quite orange. I like that, but you may not. For wnw_brw$1.99, it’s worth a shot! I really like the brush that is attached to the other end as well. I apply the pencil with a light hand, focusing on my arch. Then I brush it through, and sometimes repeat the step.

Next, I use NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Blonde. This is a trio of light nyx_browpowtaupe, ash blonde, and a wax. (Along with a completely useless angle brush and spoolie.) NYX also makes an Auburn/Red version but Ulta was sold out when I got this, and I haven’t gone back to get it. I’d very much like to try it, but this blonde powder works well regardless! I use an e.l.f. Small Angled Brush to apply it.

At the end, I have a very natural look. I’m not sure this is my holy grail eyebrow routine, but it’s pretty good. I would definitely recommend trying either or both of these!

      1. Makes me miss red hair. I’m naturally golden with red undertones but I have ashy tones in my hair atm. I’m really contemplating going honey blonde. Easiest to maintain and match brow products.


      2. My red hair faded a lot with age (hence why I started this blog!) and is much more golden blonde/light strawberry blonde now. It was easier to find brow products for sure! I’m about to try henna to get back the color I had as a teenager, I’m very hopeful! But it might be a bit hard to maintain with super light roots lol


      3. yeah, from what I have gathered about henna, it’s very hard to remove and maintain.
        My roots always look bright reddish gold compared to the ash blond. The struggle is real. LOL.


      4. I was dead-set against henna, because of the permanence, but I was convinced after tons of research and hanging out at a couple informative forums. it’s definitely not for everyone but my test (hair from my brush haha) turned out SO gorgeous and perfect
