People are perplexed when it comes to brows. From shaping, plucking, and coloring, there’s a lot of things that could go wrong in between. Though most of it is trial and error, we’re here to make it easier for you to find a shade that frames your eyes perfectly.

Let’s get started with the basics. As a rule of thumb, those with dark hair should choose a hue that’s two shades lighter than your hair color. Inversely, those with light hair should fill in their brows with a tone that’s two shades darker than their hair color.

When choosing a shade, consider a neutral, ashy color. Steer clear from using warm-toned browns, the reddish tints throw off your coloring and, in turn, throw off the rest of your makeup. Red-haired girls, on the other hand, will benefit from the warm tones.

Lastly, when in doubt reach for a taupe-colored brow-filler. It’s a universal match for almost all hair colors.
