As a redhead with white-blonde eyebrows, it’s usually impossible to waltz into a drugstore and find makeup products that match my hair. Although they aren’t always easy to find, brow products for gingers do exist - you just have to know where to look.
Although some girls might love the bleached-brow look, growing up, I always wished that some of the color in my hair could transfer itself to my face. Trying to find makeup at my local drugstore was discouraging, and at one point I gave up and started coloring my brows dark brown.
Looking for a Solution
Clearly, I needed advice. After reading articles, watching YouTube videos, and exploring the surprisingly huge beauty section at my local Walmart, I discovered some amazing products that gave me the brows of my dreams.
Here are four favorites, recommended by yours truly and by famous redhead Madelaine Petsch. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!
1. Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer Eyebrow Mascara in Auburn
Maybelline’s Eyebrow Mascara is the one brow product I use every single day. It’s super easy to brush on, and it stays all day long. The color is a perfect match for my bright-red hair, but auburn-haired girls can add more layers for a darker shade. Finally, this product is great because it costs a mere $4.99 on Amazon, and you can actually find it in some supermarkets!
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Auburn
If you prefer to fill in your brows with powder, Anastasia’s Brow Powder Duo is a great choice. The compact includes both a brighter red shade and a darker auburn shade, so you can blend them to get the perfect color. Girls with lighter red or strawberry-blonde hair might like this compact in Caramel instead of Auburn. The Brow Powder Duo is on the pricier side at $23 at Sephora, but I know from experience that it’ll last for months.
3. Redhead Revolution Color Me Happy Brow Tint
Redhead Revolution is a fabulous company that creates makeup products specifically for redheads. They even have auburn mascara! One of their highest-rated products is the “Color Me Happy” brow tint, a mineral-based formula that comes in dark red and reddish-blonde. I’ve never tried this product on my own brows, but the five-star reviews speak for themselves. Even better, this tint is paraben-free and infused with Vitamin E oil for healthy, nourished brows. Get it at Redhead Revoltion for $22.
4. Pacifica Stunning Brows Gloss and Set in Golden Brown
The Pacifica Stunning Brows Gloss and Set is recommended by none other than redheaded icon Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl Blossom to Riverdale fans.) In a recent video with Vogue, she shared her 38-step beauty routine and cited this brow product as her “holy grail.” The set comes with a warm golden-brown brow tint and a clear gloss for extra hold. It’s easy to see why Petsch loves this product: it’s vegan, phthalate-free, and formulated with sunflower seed oil and Vitamin B. Buy it from Pacifica for $14.
So, redheads, don’t despair -- whether you’re auburn, strawberry-blonde, or anywhere in between, there is a product out there that will match your hair and keep your brows (and your bank account) healthy and nourished. This list is only the beginning. Happy shopping!
