I have dark black hair and light skin and I use ebony. I used the brunette before and I found it to be too light; it looked light brown on my eyebrow. So, I would suggest ebony.

answer 2
I have been purchasing this product for many years. I have light/medium skin and I used to use the ebony compact but I recently purchased the dark brown compact. I was happy with the ebony compact but, out of curiosity, tried the dark brown compact and to my surprise find that it looks more natural. The darkest shade in the dark brown compact and the lightest shade in the ebony compact are very similar but the latter is a bit darker. The light brown shade in the dark brown compact may seem off-putting but it actually complements dark brown hair nicely when blended with the dark brown shade. Glad I tried it and switched.

I recommend Ebony. I love that it fills in my brows, complements my skin tone, and doesn't have an extremely harsh finish. Given your complexion and haircolor, I would totally recommend the Ebony-- however, you should really go to Sephora and ask an associate to apply them on your brows.

I went in and realized Ebony was the perfect match for my skin/haircolor.

I am Eurasian; have light/medium skin with yellow undertones and medium (sometimes dark) brown hair. I tried both the brunette and ebony compact & the ebony looks much more natural on me. Both compacts contain only brown colors , they just differ in the type of brown. The darker brown in the brunette compact is a bit red for my taste. Whereas, the lighest brown in the ebony compact is more of a "true" brown, like a chocolate brown. Since the dark brown in the ebony compact is too dark for my brows I use it as a eye shadow & it works great.

I have dark brown hair and fair skin, I use the Ebony color, and I can attest first hand that it is NOT black. I've tried the brunette as well but the golden undertone of it just doesn't look natural on me. Ebony has a neutral undertone which makes it perfect against my skin tone, regardless of how light it is.

I would go with a shade closest to your hair color. Or mix 2 colors for a custom shade. I would not recommend going with a color that matches your skin tone, b/c then we wouldn't be able to see your eyebrows.

Go with Medium Ash. I still have dark brown/black eyebrows (sparse), tried a darker brown or brunette, and both looked "drawn on". The Medium Ashe blends well and looks so much more natural.

If your hair is TRULY black, you may need the Ebony. But...I'm African American and have VERY dark brown hair (that most people THINK is black) and I use the brunette. It's important not to go too dark, because it will look artificial. Try to catch it with the free samples if you can't make it to the store. They almost ALWAYS have the free sample in brunette. If I had to guess for you, I'd say get the brunette and use more of the darker color in the duo. Hope this helps!

The darker shade is intended for the outer part of the brow and lighter shades intent is to be used on the inner brow so its not so harsh.

You mix them both , if you only used the darker shade it will look to dark. by mixing them both it gives you a more natural looking eyebrow your eyebrows should be at least a shade lighter then your hair color . am fair skinned and i have black hair , i use the brunette shade and it looks natural and flawless.

The reason why most brow fillers come with two shades is so that you can mix the colors to get the closest to the color of your eyebrows. Also, some people prefer to use a lighter color on their eyebrow during the day and a darker one during the night to get a more dramatic effect.

That's a good question and I asked it too while I was buying it at the store. I need the darker shade only- the one pictured here is not what I am referring to- there is a duo that comes with 2 shades of brown- both darker than the one pictured. I really only need the darker one. Hopefully Anastasia will repackage so that 1 shade will come in the compact.

I have red hair, and use the Strawburn shade. It can be applied lightly or darker, depending on what looks right to you. Use an angled brush to apply, and if its too dark for you, you can use a brow brush to sort of dull it down a bit. Hope this helps :)

Yes, I have a gap in my brows and the powder fills it in nicely. You may have to blend two colors or start with the lighter coler then thinly line (short brush strokes-used an angled brush) with the darker color to make it look more realistic.

I put it on first thing in the morning (usually wax first, then powder) and it stays on all day. I also have fairly sparse eyebrows and this product works great - gives me a nice defined brow without looking goofy. The powder is very natural. You could always carry the powder with you througout the day - the palette is so small!

I consider myself as having ¨regular¨ eyebrows (as far as thinkness)... the powder can be pretty long lasting, but if u apply wax (or like in my case- clear mascara) it definately helps to set it in place a bit longer than w/out it. Now if ur eyebrows are really really light- i would recommend using a brow pencil (w/ light strokes) as a base and then the powder over it to make it more natural looking, and then wax or clear mascara to set....

From the description that you have of your hair, i'm going to say go with the brunette or ebony. Because I use the Medium Ash and I have lighter brown hair and it matches me just right. So I'd say go with either of those even if you can't remember which color the sample came in. More than likely, do the brunette though because if it's too light at first, you can always use more and blend it to make it darker.
