Contouring can make the world of a difference - and blending is the key. For the face I used @motivescosmetics by @lorenridinger Color Perfecting Quads in Dark and Light, and brows are @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate

I feel you!
I have dark brows & hair as well and the best way to keep dark brows from looking too harsh is to either
- Choose a taupe/ash shade to fill in the whole brow
- Use a lighter brown/grey/taupe to fill in the first half of the brow to create a gradient effect from light to dark or just fill in the front of the brow less than the arch to create the same effect.
Choosing an ash brown shade (p.s ash means a cool, grey undertone nothing warm/orange) is a lot less harsh than using a dark brown.
Shades like the middle shade in the Wet n Wild Brow Palette ($3)
ELF Brow Kit in Ash $3 (left shade is wax)
Anastasia Brow Duo in Medium Brown (one shade is ashy, one shade is a darker brown)
As you can see many brow kits come with a few different shades so you can mix them to create a shade or use the lighter shade in the front of the brow to create a gradient/ombre effect! Naturally the front of our brow is a little more sparse and lighter while the end of the brow near the arch is thicker and fuller.
Check out my Best of the Best Drugstore Products post here! :)
My fav brands are Red Cherry, Ardell and Salon Perfect :)
I prefer human hair lashes with clear lash bands because they look the most natural. Salon Perfect lashes arent real human hair but they look pretty darn close.
Red Cherry has soo many styles and you can get them fro really affordable at $1 to $2.50 depending on where you get it. The only problem with Red Cherry is they arent in any big name stores they are sold at mom and pop beauty stores that choose to sell them. However you can easily find them online!
When I first started buying Red Cherry i’d just buy one of many styles and then once I try them buy more of styles that I liked! My fav styles are #217, #43, #474M, #523, #117 & #205
Ardell is sold at most drugstores like CVS, Walgreens, etc. A little more on the expensive side at $3 - $4 a pair.
My fav styles are Demi Wispies, #117 and #105.
Salon Perfect is a brand sold at Walmart and online. They are really similar to Ardell lashes just a little cheaper. They make great 4 packs!
