Try a heavy coating of a brow tint to add color dimension to your natural brow hairs. Brows one shade darker will give your face definition and create a bolder look. Use a pencil to structure the brow shape, then fill in with powder brow shadow. You can even add in some shimmer for a dazzling effect. For more control over color depth of your brows, use the Lorac Take a Brow kit with two shades of brow colors and a wax for all of your on-the-go brow essentials.
