Creating the perfect brow may feel daunting at first, but it’s possible.
If you are curious about where to start, you’re in the right place! We suggest starting with the basics and probably the most important component, the shade. Once you’re able to establish your perfect shade from home, you’re halfway to being a pro.
Some of us have spent hundreds of dollars at salons trying to get our desired look. Whether it is waxing, threading, tinting, or micro-blading, the list is endless (endlessly expensive).
And don’t get us started on that one friend we all have with the perfect brows who claims to do them herself. You can’t help but wonder... What is their secret? How could their brows possibly look so good?
There is a general rule of thumb to follow when selecting your perfect shade. First, the perfect shade is ultimately the shade that you like best and makes you feel most confident.
However, if you’re looking for a little guidance, we have some chic colors for you to choose from.
That being said, here are some tips for selecting a shade that may be most flattering for your skin tone and hair color.

How To Get The Perfect Shade From Home
Now, finding the perfect product is only half the battle. The other struggle is finding your perfect eyebrow shade.
When we were little, it was easy to take a brown Crayon and just draw little, straight lines for eyebrows. But now… well, it’s more complicated.
Now we have to wonder how many shades of brown there even are! Do you go for a dark, deep, cool brown or a light golden warm brown? The answer can depend and definitely varies based on hair color.
This dilemma applies to blondes as well. Dirty blonde, strawberry blonde, platinum, the list is endless, and there are so many options that it could make you dizzy.
It’s not just blonde, brown, or black hair. The process for determining the correct shade for yourself is just that, a process.
However, we will do everything in our power to keep the process simple and fun. Finding a preferred shade can be intimidating for anyone, but trust us, it’s not as scary as you think.
First and foremost, you cannot, I repeat, cannot go too dark. A general rule of thumb is selecting a color a few shades lighter than your hair color.
If you can’t decide on what your hair color is, don’t hesitate to ask a friend for help! In fact, it might even be a great bonding adventure!
Some people might say brunettes have it easier, but we beg to differ.
With brown hair, you can’t just slap on a random dark color; many elements factor into your color decision.
You have to consider the tone of your hair and your skin tone. Maybe you’re light golden warm brown or a deeper, more cool brown.
You may even have an auburn brown shade. Depending on which you identify with most, your brow shade will vary.
For you, caramel macchiato shaded individuals, go for a warmer, more rich color. Just make sure you’re not going too dark. Aim for something that will get the job done but not overpower the natural color of your hair. A good rule of thumb is to stick to a few shades lighter than your hair color.
For those who lean towards dark deep browns, aim to find a rich brown.
You all may have it the hardest when it comes to selecting a shade, mainly because you want to find a black that won’t look too dark.
It’s more likely than not that you may already be blessed with dark, full brows. For many with darker hair, you can get away with just “filling in the blanks.”
TatBrow’s ash black is a perfect shade for individuals with black hair. If you have very full and dark lashes already, you might find that the Ultra Defining Brow Gel is perfect for you.
Products like brow gel will allow you to perfectly fill in your brows without adding too much drama. It allows for great definition, keeps your brows in place, and provides some additional coverage.
A cool-toned ash color would be perfect for grey hair or a dark taupe. It’s a great “in-between” black and grey. It provides the darkness and deepness that you want when filling in your brows without using too much of a heavy hand.
When you find a true grey color that compliments your skin tone and hair tone, then take full advantage of that. You may find that our grey shade is best suited for your desired look!
Well, there are so many different shades of blonde, but once you know which shade applies to you, finding a brow color will easily follow.
There is strawberry blonde, platinum blonde, dirty blonde, regular blonde, the list is endless.
- Strawberry Blonde: stick to taupe colors. Try a warm blonde shade or even a very light auburn color if the tone is warmer. Leading ladies to mimic? Try going for an Amy Adams look or maybe Christina Hendricks!
- Platinum Blonde: If you have platinum blonde hair, try a cool ash color for your eyebrow. Your brow inspiration? Look no further than Gwen Stefani!
- Golden/Traditional Blondes: Similarly to platinum blondes, we advise against going too light. We suggest trying out a warm tone, light blonde, or even a light taupe color. This will provide you the coverage and fill you are looking for without totally overwhelming the appearance of your brows. Your fellow golden blondes with killer brows are Blake Lively and Margot Robbie. But don’t be afraid to go for a bold dark shade like Clara Delevinge!
Last but certainly not least: redheads.
If you’re a redhead, it’s probably a challenge to find the right shade for you. You want to stick to a natural look, so we recommend aiming for something more similar to your natural eyebrow shade rather than your hair.
The shade of your natural eyebrow should really compliment your skin tone and hair. Opt for a light brown, or even taupe blonde, as that will likely compliment you best.
