Hi there, I forgot to add a picture of the Ultimate Brown/soft brown with my last answer. It is a very rich color despite being what they are terming "light". I am blonde with dark brows and lashes. I am fair skinned. This is my favorite pencil.

Try medium ash or just one step up from that. This pencil allows a lot of customization because of the brow brush at the end.... you can slowly take off color until you achieve what is just right. Also be sure to take advantage of Sephora's super helpful staff-not to mention return policy if you arent happy.
The brow stencils from Anastasia might be something to try as well.

Blonde hair...Brown eyebrows. What to do?
I dye my hair a very light, golden blonde. My natural hair color is dark blonde/light brown but I have fairly dark eyebrows.

What color should I get to fill in my eyebrows so they don't look harsh against my hair, but also aren't too light, so you can tell that I have tried to lighten them?

I would try straw burn. The reddish tint is not too strong, and it gives a more warm tone, rather than ashy, which I think would be good for you since you described your hair as a golden blonde. I have blonde hair naturally, but my brows have always been much darker than my hair. I sometimes bleach my brows with a little cream bleach, which gives them a slightly strawberry blonde look. I purchased straw burn, and it really seems to blend everything together. This is the first time my close friends and my husband couldn't tell I lightened my brows, even when I pointed it out. Everyone thinks it looks great, and brightens my face.

You want to choose the brow pencil color that is closest to the current color of your hair. I have light brown / dark blonde hair, so I always use a blonde pencil. It grooms the brows without looking overly dark or fake. When I color my hair darker, I bump up the color a shade or two.

Even though I have auburn hair, i am fair skinned (i am one of the 6% of the world's pop with no yellow in my skin) and have blue-green eyes. the strawburn works great for me -- i usually have trouble w/the browns they are too dark and the blondes are just to light -- if you have the time, stop in to a Sephora and try the different colors.

If you have light brown or medium-dark blonde hair (natural or not) I recommend the "Soft Brown" shade. Very natural looking while still allowing you to shape and fill to your desired needs. If you want to go slightly darker try the Ash shade.

I would recommend trying it in Ash Blonde - it's better to go lighter than darker on eyebrow pencils. Plus, this product layers well so you can achieve a darker effect if needed.

Try the "golden blonde", which is a medium brown. The "ash blonde" is a taupe/brown. Both look good on my friend, who has light/medium brown hair, hazel eyes.

Medium Ash might be your best bet. It would probably be the middle of all the shades, unless you have reddish hair, then you would want to go for the Strawburn pencil.

Question
What color for dyed hair?
I have naturally dirty blonde hair but I dye my hair a brownish red. When I do the initial hair dye I do my brows too (Yes, I know you aren't supposed to but I do anyway) Eventually of course they will grow out... Should I pick a pencil to match closer to the dyed color to keep up the brow color to match my hair dyed color or should I pick a pencil that is the real color of my eyebrows? Thank you!

I understand completely. The eyebrows fade back to your natural color much faster than the hair does. I use a pencil with red undertones almost all the time. When I try to use on to match my natural color after the brows have faded, it just accentuates the difference in color between my brows and my hair. Finding a good red based blonde or brown eyebrow pencil a little lighter than your hair color should help when your color is fresh, and keep the red tone in the eyebrows aftet they have faded. Hope this helps, I haaven't found the perfect colors yet either.

If your eyebrows are on the dark side, use a pencil to match your natural color, but if they are lighter, match your new hair shade. You really should use color that is for eyebrows.

Question
What color?
I am currently using the medium ash in the Brow Wiz even though I have dark brows. I have found the brunette color is a little too dark to fill in my sparse areas and tends to look unnatural. What color would you recommend in the Perfect Brow pencil? I love the Brow Wiz but it only lasts for a month maximum so I'm hoping this pencil will last longer. Thanks!

I don't think this pencil will last more than a month. It's too soft. You have to sharpen it daily because it gets dull within 1-2 strokes, which makes it difficult to create a precise brow shape.

I definitely agree with you about the short usage of the Brow Wiz. I made the switch over to the Brow Pencil and I love it but I do miss how easier it was with the Brow Wiz because the Brow pencil is a lot thicker in diameter. I am not sure what shade you should go for but I highly recommend going into a store and trying it out. :)

Substitute for Sephora brow pencil in light brown
Sephora stopped making the brow pencil that I loved. I was using the soft brown (light brown) not sure exactly what they called it. I have medium blonde hair and find most blonde pencils too light and reddish. The reviews of the Anastasia pencils seem good but I am not sure what color. Does anyone have a recommendation?

I recommend it. I recently purchased this pencil to replace another product I couldn't get anymore. The consultant let me see it on me first. We also tried a liquid brow. I really like this brow pencil best. The coloring is good. Not too bold so your brows come off your face. But bold enough and soft.
