Change Your Hair Color, Change Your Brow Color

When coloring your hair, whether you go from dark to light or light to dark, you can't just ignore the color of your eyebrows. Doing so can result in an unbalanced, distracting appearance.

According to experts, your eyebrows should be about one to two shades darker than your hair color. Ideally, you want to see them, but they should not be the focus of the face.

Blondes should make sure that eyebrows are soft but not too light; otherwise they will disappear and exaggerate lines and wrinkles surrounding the eye area.

Brunettes, on the other hand, should strive for a natural color without going dramatically dark; brows that are too dark can give off a severe look.

    It doesn't look unnatural at all. It does if you just bleach them lighter as sometimes you end up with a brassy or orange tone. You have to take all the color out and then dye/darken them to the proper shade. If it's done properly it looks totally natural.

    I recently asked my colorist if she thought I should lighten my eyebrows as well. She said not to do it because it always looks unnatural. Is this true? What's a good method to lighten your eyebrows and still have them look natural? Is there a way to do this with makeup?
