There aren’t many downfalls to having the world’s greatest hair colour. But, if we had to pick one, it would be the endless quest to find a redhead-friendly eyebrow product that matches our ginger hair to perfection.
Natural redheads’ eyebrow hair is extremely fair so we want to accentuate our peepers more when we wear make-up. The trouble is, cosmetic companies tend to forget that there is more than one shade of red hair out there, and sometimes forget about us altogether!
So, we went snooping in the name of ginger beauty research and found gel, pencil and powder eyebrow products to suit redheads, depending on the particular shade of red hair.

bareMinerals Brow Powder in ‘Ash Blonde’
‘Brow Love’ Gel For Redheads in ‘Blonde’ available in the Ginger Parrot Store
