Disaster! Eyebrows and Hair color!

Posted by snow_peach (My Page) on

Help!!! My hair was just dyed a deep, rich red, but my eyebrows are dark brown! The hair color is beautiful... but my eyebrows don't really go with it. I need to know what color my eyebrows should be to enhance my hair and not make me look flat and washed out. I cant go and get them dyed, but maybe some light peroxide or something would lighten them, and i could use penicl or powder to color my brows. I just need to know... what color??!? I have fair skin, light-peachy, and honey brown eyes. If that helps...
please help me! If you want, (I'd really appreciate it) you can email me your response.

thank you so much!

Snow Peach, for color, I would use 'auburn' (most brands have auburn), use powder instead of pencil.

To lighten, you could try using a little peroxide or lemon juice....applied with a Q-Tip....careful, don't get it in your eyes.

Before you put anything on them, I would visit a good cosmetic counter and try to find a suitable pencil to enhance your look.
Possibly your whole eye makeup color scheme has to be revised to flatter your new hair color; don't forget that your hair color will change somewhat after a few shampoos so don't do anything radical right now.
I've found that Color Conserve shampoo by Aveda keeps my color true , don't shampoo with just anything and strip your color too fast.

Hair bleach for facial hair will lighten your brows to a reddish color. My brows are dark brown and lighten in about 5 or 6 mins. Just don't leave the bleach on too long or you'll wind up with blonde brows. Good luck.
