The challenge of choosing a brow pencil

February 23rd, 2012 | Contributed by:

Choosing the right brow pencil is difficult - but rewarding!If you've ever seen a woman on the street with obviously-penciled brows, chances are she was wearing the wrong shade. If you choose an eyebrow pencil that's too dark or not the right color, you'll risk looking like one of those women. Fortunately, Glamour Magazine's beauty blog has a few tips to help you choose the perfect hue.

"I always say to choose a color that is a shade or so lighter than the hair of the brow," Ricky Wilson, the Dior Beauty Celebrity Makeup Artist, told the news source. "To keep brows looking natural and groomed, I recommend going with a taupe that makes it easy to control the amount of brow you want."

Some shades of taupe look good on everyone, so it might benefit you to choose Too Faced – Brownie Eye Brow Pencil. There are only two colors to choose from – dark or light taupe. Choose light if you're blonde or fair-haired and dark if you're not.

Follow up your pencil application with Paula Dorf – Brow Gel to keep your brows in place all day long.
