Five years since it burst onto the beauty scene and rose to become Glossier’s number one selling product, Boy Brow is now available in auburn.
The fifth shade joins blond, brown, black and clear, finally giving flame-haired beauties a chance to tame and enhance their eyebrows with the fan-favourite pigmented pomade.
The fact that it’s taken Glossier five years to add auburn to its shade selection just goes to show that those who’ve been blessed with red hair (or dyed their locks a rosy hue) are often overlooked when it comes to make-up ranges, and we’re not just talking brow gels.
But if you know where to look, you can find suitable shades for every product. Here are four make-up brands that are perfect for redheads…
While some brands only offer a limited number of products in ginger-friendly shades, Revolution has got the best range of brow enhancers we’ve found, and they’re incredibly affordable too. Choose from the Pro Duo Eyebrow Powder (€5.75), Pro Microblading Precision Eyebrow Pencil (€5.75) or Pro Brow Pomade (€6.95) – all in shade Auburn and available at Beauty Bay.
It will probably come as no surprise to learn that eyebrow experts Benefit are way ahead of the game in terms of providing brow pencils for every hair colour. The brand’s Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil (€27.50), Precisely, My Brow Pencil (€26.00) and Double The Precision Brow Pencil Duo (€27.50) all come in the shade Warm Auburn, available at Boots.
3. Fenty Beauty
Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is known for its epic 50-shade foundation ranges, and that’s not the only area in which the brand excels at colour matching. The Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler (€19.00) comes in three different red varieties – Auburn, Soft Red and True Red. Plus, the PRO FILT’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (€34.00) comes in a huge range of shades suitable for paler skin types. Shop Fenty in Boots.
To find the best MAC Cosmetics eyebrow products for redheads, look for a shade called Strut. This reddish-brown hue is available with the Eyebrows Big Boost Fibre Gel (€23.61) and the Eyebrows Styler (€18.20). Not only that, the brand’s much-loved Studio Fix Fluid SPF15 Foundation (€31.48) comes in a wide range of pale shades with warm, cool and neutral undertones.
