When it comes to filling in your brows, you no doubt reach for a product in the same colour family as your hair: be it brown, blonde or red. But to get the perfect match, you need to be pickier than simply reaching for a close-enough shade. Hannah Terrett, Benefit Australia’s National Brow Artist reveals her expert tips for how to choose the right hue for you.



“Golden browns work on warm brunettes; cool brunettes can add a deeper tone with a chocolate base,” advises Terrett.
