Julianne Hough's Too Dark brows With Light Hair: A Do Or Don't

The perfect brows.

Do they exist?

Well, on some women, yes. We think Elizabeth Taylor probably had one of the best sets of brows, and of course, Hollywood makeup artists probably tweaked them even a tiny bit more.

When it comes to blonde hair and eyebrow color, well, that's a tough one.

Marilyn Monroe wore dark brows  with platinum hair and ALWAYS looked glam + sexy. And Gwen Stefani has also pulled off this strong look with modern elegance.

Then why do Julianne Hough's brows bother us?

Here's a stunning young woman who has resorted to painting on really bold brows as of late, and we don't understand why her makeup artist is doing that.

Maybe her brows are so light that she needs beauty definition? It just seems that Julianne's brows enter a room before she actually does.

So, when you have light hair, do the brows have to match your light hair?

Not always, as some makeup artists would advise. Beauty rules CAN be broken:

Brows can be left alone for their natural shade.
Brows can go darker than the blonde hair color.
Brows can match the blonde hair color.

Gwyneth Paltrow's signature look features matching brows + hair:

One of the hottest 'it' models on the runway at the moment is Cara Delvigne. The British beauty is known for her super bold brows and blonde locks.

And then there's singer Rita Ora who loves playing around with made-up dark brows against her glam fab platinum do.

Some women bleach their too dark brows lighter to complement their new lighter locks And then a lot of gals pencil, powder, tint or paint on their brows to add definition  to their blonde hair.

Too Faced sells a great brow kit that includes both blonde + brunette pencils and a shaping kit to design the perfect pair for you.

Meantime, we are always trying to grow thicker brows. It's one of the big beauty challenges for us.

If you've got thick, full brows, good for you! That's half the battle.

I agree with you. Julianne looks different and Im not sure its the eyebrows. I think they are the problem. But she looks different. A brow lift maybe? Shes s young she should stop messing with the good looks the Lord gave her.

What's wrong with Rita Ora's brows?
I think she looks gorgeous--the best out of all of them. I think Gweneth Paltrow's brows always look sickly and pale.

As a blonde I like a bolder brow.You need it.

I like Gwyneth Paltrow's light brows. They look very natural and pretty, IMO.
