A Very Red Mad Hatter

Coloured Eyebrows are a trend that seems to be everywhere at the moment. It's fun, creative, colourful and super simple to do. I have seen so many different coloured brows floating around but not really any red ones  ,*might have something to do with Ginger jokes* so I thought I might as well start of my series with a brow-shaped bang and take it from there
I have used the same method I normally use everyday to shape my eyebrows, which is to outline my desired brow shape and then fill in said shape with a powder. The only thing that I would really recommend doing if you want to try out this trend, is to use a thick concealer the same shade as your skin over your eyebrows to act as a base and block your natural eyebrow colour from showing up. As I have very dark brows this step really was a godsend as the Red pigment eyeshadow I used had less black hair to cover up.
