Choosing a brow fix when your hair is now “blonde” and your brows are darker, is not an easy task. Most shades are either too dark, leaning on the reddish side, or too ashy. Believe me, I have tried way too many brow fixatives, pencils, powders, creams and gels. My theory is that if a brand can get blonde brows right, brown shades are so much easier to master.

So after a lot of trial and error, these are my personal top 3 picks for great looking blonde brows:

Dior Powder Brow Pencil – $28

You can softly define brows with this long wearing powder brow pencil. Excellent for warm weather wear because it is a light powder and stays put. It allows you to shape your brows with leaving marks or lines that show. This is the best eye pencil I have ever used! Natural color and simple to use.  *Purchased

Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil- $28

Super fine tip like the kind you get with quality mechanical pencils – with a spiral brow brush on the opposite end. This pencil is perfect for making individual strokes. I found it slower to use and you need to be very precise and just fill in bald spots. It also does not last long and you will have to replenish often because the pencil is delicate and can easily break off if you apply too much pressure. However, the look is incredibly natural and the universal shade worked for me and seems very neutral except for black or dark, dark brown brows. At $28 this is a high maintenance brow fix.  * Purchased

Clinique Instant Lift For Brows $15

Double duty brow pencil paired with a pearlized highlighter to give brows more definition and open up eyes.  The highlighter is designed to give brows a boost to accentuate the shape and contour of the eyes – kind of like what BOTOX can do for you. The pencil goes on very naturally and comes in 3 neutral shades – Deep Brown, Soft Brown, Soft Blonde. The combination is a handy time saver, a clever multi-tasker that is perfect for travel and for carrying around to get ready for day to evening makeup.  *Gifted
