Between finding a good moisturizer with SPF, foundation that is fair enough, and brow products to match a fiery hue, it’s not easy stocking up on products. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible though. From powders to pencils to creams, the best brow products for redheads are ones that are buildable enough to match a variety of hues. Being a redhead and a beauty fan is tough.
As a redhead myself, I know the struggle of finding the perfect makeup. Brow products can be the most challenging to match with auburn hair. It seems like they are always either too light or too dark, but don’t worry — you’re not out of luck just yet. There are definitely some products out there to match redheads brows that make getting ready in the morning that much easier.
What makes a good redheaded brow product, you ask? Versatility. It has to be light enough to wear with almost no makeup, yet still dark enough to pull through on the high-glam days. Being buildable is always a plus as well. With all these expectations, it’s no surprise that a lot of the redhead brow products don’t hold up, but these seven find a way to do it all.
1. Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse
Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse in Medium Brown, $29, tarte.com
I know what you’re thinking, but trust me on this one. This is my number one go-to brow product, even though there isn’t an auburn shade. Because of the slightly red undertone, it’s perfect for redheads. Plus you can easily layer, making it perfect for light or heavy makeup days.
2. MAC Brow Duo
MAC Redheads Brow Duo, $22, shop.nordstrom.com
To all my light red ladies out there, this is the one for you. You get two colors to choose from, which means you have a world of possibilities when it comes to building up to the right shade and coverage.
3. Brett Brow Duo-Shade Pencil
Brett Brow Duo-Shade Pencil in Redhead, $18, sephora.com
If you’re set on pencil products, this one is great. It can be really hard to get the right formula for a redhead when it comes to a pencil, but because this has two different shades, it’s definitely at the top of the list.
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Auburn, $21, anastasiabeverlyhills.com
This bad boy will keep your redheaded brow hairs in place all day long. Once it’s on, it’s on. For my light-haired ladies, I would try the more blondish hue instead of the auburn.
5. ColourPop’s Brow Colour
ColourPop Brown Colour in Arched Auburn, $6, colourpop.com
The company just recently came out with a brow line, so I was super excited to see that they offered more than one shade geared toward redheads. Available in gel pencil and pot form, this formula is a bit waxy, so it will stay put all day long.
6. MAC Wash And Dry Brow Set
MAC Wash And Dry Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set, $17, macys.com
Trust me when I say that there’s no greater makeup challenge than finding a brush-on brow product for a redhead. What I like best about MAC’s is that it’s light enough to put on over a color or look great on it’s own.
7. Maybelline New York Eyestudio
Maybelline New York Eyestudio Brow Definer Duo in Auburn, $6.29, pharmapacks.com
There aren’t very many drugstore brow products that are made specifically for redheads. This one is a really amazing and affordable options.
Thank goodness some brands keep us redheads in mind!
