It is more flattering
Grey has secretly been deemed a universal shade for all brow colours. Especially for brunettes. A subtle application of grey to fill in the sparse areas of your brows would look more flattering than the regular deep brown.
It gives your brows more texture
When combined with their shades like browns and natural blacks, they can be used to create texture on your brows. If you already a have few greys, camouflaging it will become easy with a grey product base underneath.
It looks more natural
For desis, a shade like the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown is the safest option to get their brows right. However, if you are not feeling bold, defined brows and looking for a cool tone closest to your natural brow colour, grey will come in handy.
It complements lighter hair colour
Already a fan of eccentric beauty trends and are sporting anywhere between a pastel hair colour or all-out platinum blonde? A grey eyebrow look will help harmonise the entire look, making it look balanced with cool tones.
Pro tip: Don't go heavy-handed with grey eyebrow products on your face as they run the risk of making your skin look dull and pale. Apply your brow products gently, even if you might lave a couple of bald spots on the brow. Spread them out with a brow brush instead and use light brush strokes to bend perfectly.
