Looking for the best blonde eyebrow pencil? Having too many options makes deciding for the right product is, no doubt, a bit overwhelming. Let me help you find the right one.
The new fad is to have thick, fluffy brows. This appears to be more difficult with blonde hair.
Seemingly non-existent brows are really difficult to style and perk up.
And truthfully, it’s more difficult to style brows when you’re afraid of dominating them, especially if you’re still a rookie.
Why is my hair blonde?
Generally, people believe that the darker the hair, the thicker it is. Having blonde genes results in hair that is thin and fine. This is due to the amount of melanin present on the type of hair.
People’s hair color is determined by the abundance of eumelanin, a kind of pigment melanin. Having abundant eumelanin means your natural hair color is black. More likely, very few eumelanin present in your hair would result in a blonde hair color.
Blondies typically have fine, thin hair that can be difficult to manage, particularly on the brows. Thus, I have a few tips for you.
Beauty Tips for Blonde Brows
1 Know Your Color
Knowing what color suits you is the most important. Blonde hair isn’t the same for all. There are blondes that belong to the darker shades while there are blonde hairs that are lighter compared to the rest.
Others would go for a one shade darker to their hair color to highlight their brows. Some would choose a brow makeup shade that matches the undertones of their natural hair.
Knowing what color suits you is the most important.
For light golden brown hair, it is recommended to look for shades that are “light blonde”.
For ash blondes, “taupe”.
For reddish-yellow hairs, find “auburn”.
For darker blondes, you can use “taupe” or “light brown” shades.
2 Know Your Shape
Go for a brow shape that is opposite to your face
Eyebrow shape that suits you would depend on what your face shape is. The golden rule is to go for a brow shape that is opposite to your face. For example, if you have a round face, the go to brow shape should have a soft angle with shallow arches to compliment with the modesty of your face shape.
3 Know Your Kit
Aside from learning the color and shape of your brows, you must also learn to know your tools and what they do. Everything is as important as the other.
At the very least, an eyebrow kit should have the following items:
- Spoolie Brush – The brows are groomed using a spoolie brush before applying makeup. It is beneficial to direct your brow hairs in the desired direction and make them appear tamed or fluffy. Also, a helpful tool that is used for blending the brows.
- Eyebrow Pencil – Pencils are the most convenient, particularly for beginners and travelers. It will fit on practically any makeup bag you have. If you can find your way around eyebrow pencils, then you can jump onto eyebrow pens, powders, even pomades later on.
- Brow Gel – Clear or tinted – it’s up to you! Brow gels control unruly brow hairs and extend the life of your brow makeup.
Some pencils have spoolies at one end, so you get both tools in one.
4 Choosing the Correct Form of Makeup
There are many different types of eyebrow makeup to choose from, each with its own effect. Your choice of brow makeup is based on how you want your brows to look. For a more intricate appearance, you can blend multiple forms of makeup.
For filling in and defining brows, brow pencils and crayons are ideal. Use eyebrow pencils to get a refined, clean look.
Having too many options makes deciding for the right product a bit overwhelming. Now let’s jump onto finding the right one for you.

Now after choosing what kind of pencil you’ll use. Let’s move on with how to fill in your brows.
How to Fill in Your Brows with Pencil
Step 1: Decide What Your Shape Is
Referring to what we talked about earlier, what your eyebrow shape will be, should be assessed in accordance with your face shape. Once you’ve decided, let’s now move to the second step.
Step 2: Groom
Groom your brows using a spoolie. This will help tame your brow hairs and get rid of unnecessary things stuck in your brows.
Now, get ready for your eyebrow makeup.
Step 3: Fill In
This could be hard and tricky at first. But, once you get your hands used to it, this will be a whole lot easier.
Use the pencil to create your desired shape. Use light, feathered strokes in outlining and filling in.
Do not put too much pressure on your hands when doing this. It would create a dark shade that is too much to look at. Just be gentle and follow your desired shape.
Do not fill in too much at the beginning of the brow. You would want to add shadow at the arch to the tail for a darker and more defined look. The definition would add emphasis to your brows and make it look good and thicker.
Step 4: Blend
Never forget to blend. Blending is important to make your brows look more natural.
Use your spoolie again to comb your brows and make it seamless.
If your brows are too dark to your satisfaction, just blend it well and it will look lighter.
