And you thought that keeping hair color from fading was the toughest part of being a redhead.
Whenever I do a full red hair refresh, it always takes me a couple of days to get my brow color j-u-s-t right. Typically, I’ll text my friend and Make Up For Ever artist Audrey Lea Curry for an emergency recommendation, but a rediscovery of the It Cosmetics Brow Power Super Skinny in Universal Auburn gave me a whole new perspective. If you’ve never experienced post-color brow panic, just take a look at my selfie with fresh hair color. See the difference?
Recently, I had the chance to try Maybelline’s revamped assortment of brow products and I’m so impressed. Before coloring, I was using Soft Brown, but now I’ve switched to using Auburn. I’ve never been particularly fond of brow powders, but the powders in both the Brow Drama Pro Palette & the Brow Define & Fill are excellent. I have sparse brows, so even the slightest touch of powder can make a big difference. Of the three products I’ve tried, I prefer the Brow Precise Micro Pencil, but I mix and match it with the two mentioned above for different effects. I’m on the edge of my seat for the Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer to become available in Auburn in January. I hadn’t had any luck at the drugstore finding shades to complement my red hair in the past, so this discovery makes it one of my favorites of the year!
As I mentioned above, the It Cosmetics Brow Power Super Skinny in Universal Auburn is my favorite pencil to use while my hair color is still vibrant. It’s the lightest in tone and also gives me the most natural-looking results. It’s what I’m wearing in the first photo of this post and the product that I reach for when I want a look that is both polished and balanced. To put it simply, it’s perfect.
The Anastasia Brow Wiz in Chocolate is the first product that Audrey recommended to me back during her Sephora days and the one on this list that I’ve repurchased the most. It’s also the darkest in tone and the ideal product to use as my roots grow in. If you’re more auburn than I am, Chocolate is a shade worth checking out. Brow trends come & go, but in my opinion, the Brow Wiz is still the most consistently reliable product you can use.
These are the best brow products for redheads that I’ve found. Do you have any favorites that didn’t make the list? I’m all ears!
