Are you trying to find the best eyebrow pencil for blonde hair? I have been there. As both a makeup artist as well as a blonde myself, I have tried many different eyebrow pencils over the years. I have had trouble finding an eyebrow pencil for blondes that is a good color match for blonde hair.

Many eyebrow pencils do not match blonde hair color well at all. Often, the color is all wrong for blonde hair. The brow pencils are either too dark or the tone is too ashy, which can make blonde eyebrows end up looking grey.
So today I am going to show you my favorite eyebrow pencil for blondes… Maybelline Define-A-Brow Pencil. Define-a-Brow comes in two colors for blondes, Light Blonde and Dark Blonde. The tones of the brow pencil are nice and warm and look very natural when applied. I recommend Light Blonde for platinum shades and Dark Blonde for most other blonde hair types.
This eyebrow pencil is also very soft, and applies evenly. It is an automatic brow pencil, so no sharpening. I have found that using small, mechanical eyebrow pencils work the best because of the precision that they give. The fine tip of the pencil just whisks on the skin easier, and the strokes more closely resembles actual wisps of hair. Just make sure to roll the tip up only enough for each use, as automatic pencils tend to be more fragile and can break easily.
I also like the fact that this pencil has a comb on the other end of the pencil tip. The comb can be used to blend in the color once applied, and saves you the step of grabbing a makeup brush to do so. This pencil is very long wearing and is advertised as waterproof, so no smudging throughout the day. I give it a Glamour Grade A.

*** Update! I am getting very suspicious that Maybelline is discontinuing this product. Alas, I cannot find this brow pencil at any of my local retailers. So, if you come across it, be sure to grab one while you can!
In the meantime, I am testing out Brow Wiz in Blonde by Anastasia of Beverly Hills. I really like it so far. The color is a new shade to the collection. It’s a warm blonde and right in between the Maybelline Light Blonde and Dark Blonde shades.
