Most redheads have very specific makeup and skin questions, either about their sensitive skin, red hair, light eyelashes or blonde eyebrows. It’s important to figure out what eyebrow products are best for your shade of brows because they shape your entire face. Sometimes, all a redhead needs is a few swipes of mascara and shaping of the eyebrows.

Redheads, if you just want to fill in your eyebrows, there are a lot of makeup options. It is important for the brow to look natural and not painted on. Here are a list of our favorite eyebrow products for redhead brows:

'Redhead Friendly' Beauty Products
‘Redhead Friendly’ Eyebrow Products

1. Kevyn Aucoin Ash Blonde: This wax-based formula glides on smoothly and dries to a matte finish. Use the angled brush to evenly distribute the color for a more natural look.


2. Lancome Le Crayon Poudre in Taupe or Natural Blonde: At one end: a blonde powder pencil to color-correct and contour. At the other: a handy brush to blend and groom for soft, subtly defined redhead brows.


3. Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush in Medium: A favorite and for a good reason! The brush gives you the control and ability to really define the brow, and the color is complementary to all shades of redhead brows.


4. Clinique Instant Brow Lift in Soft Brown: Highlighting the brow line makes the brows pop even more. That’s why we love this two-in-one automatic brow pencil and pearlized highlighter duo. First, fill in and shape brows with the natural shade. Then optically ‘boost’ brow arches with universal highlighter shade just below brow hairs.


5. Chella Awesome Auburn Eyebrow Color Pencil: We also love Chella The Awesome Auburn Eyebrow Color Kit because it contains the complete set of the perfect redhead brow: pencil in Awesome Auburn, a Lace Highlighter Pencil, essential Eyebrow Defining Gel and Dual Size Pencil Sharpener along with detailed, easy-to-follow instructions.


6. Youngblood Brow Artiste in Auburn: This has been our go to since 2010! It is really the perfect compact case for redhead eyebrows. You won’t regret it. Watch a transformation using the kit below:


7. Anastasia Tinted Eyebrow Gel in Auburn or Blonde: If you’re a 1-step kind of gal, this could potentially change your life. It brushes, adds natural color and keeps the brows in shape; within seconds, your brows go from invisible to shaped & perfect.


8. Clear Eyebrow Gel: No matter what product you choose, always end the process with a clear eyebrow gel. It keeps your product and look in place.


9: Bonus tool every redhead should have, a spooley brush! Redheads typically have very coarse brows, so keeping them brushed is the secret to a healthy, full brow. Brush before applying product, and also in the morning and at night. Keep the brush clean and use it for your lashes too!

    Wow! I’m surprised there was only 1 mention of an actual red eyebrow pencil!? What about the red/auburn ones from Lorac, Maybelline, Just for Redheads, Laura Mercier and more!

  • Janet

    Filling in eyebrows is a waste of time.

    • Nat

      Why would you say that? Full eyebrows look young and healthy.

      I feel “blank” when I don’t fill in my eyebrows…. I have such dark, red hair, but blonde as blonde eyelashes and eyebrows….. It makes me feel better to fill them in!

  • For some more recommendations, I actually own two different eyebrow pencils that I like: Clinique’s eyebrow pencil in soft auburn, and Vanitymark’s Gingerella eyebrow pencil.

    Mac has a great redhead pencil called redheaded ( Veluxe Brow Liner) I recently bought it and I love it. What’s so great about it is it applies like a regular brow pencil but it’s soft like a powder it’s really nice and worth the money.

  • As a redhead with blonde eyebrows, finding the right color/product can be hard. I recently opened Redhead Revolution, an online cosmetics company for redhead makeup, and featuring an eyebrow solution was on the top of my list. We developed an eyebrow tint that is easy to apply and blend- the shades were also created to fit a redhead’s coloring. Give em a try and let us know what you think!

    I love Bobbi Brown Auburn liquid brow (brush on).

    I have medium auburn hair, but my eyebrows are brown. I don’t want them to look one solid painted on color but I have to fill in the sparser spots, I don’t know what colors to use so that they look more red to match my hair better. I have a brow pencil that has a pretty good color but it goes on kind of thick and makes them LOOK like I filled them in rather than natural. Can someone help?

  • I have naturally blonde eyebrows but have been trying to figure out exactly what to do with them for a while. I wrote a blog post about it and hopefully it will make you feel like you’re not the only one with brow woes (or at least make you laugh)!
