Be careful, however, to stay as natural as possible ... Most hairdressing or beauty professionals will tell you: there is nothing like an eyebrow that is too or poorly colored to give you a sloppy look. We therefore avoid coloring your eyebrows with shades that are too frank or too far from your natural color. Finally, never fade your eyebrows! Remember, they are the ones that structure your features and give your eyes more depth.
