I have been using this taupe colored pencil for my blonde models. I am looking for something else, more so a powder to fill in brows. Does anyone have suggestions. Red heads as well. OH YEAH! And I need some crease/transitional eyeshadows for Caucasian skin as well. For women period in that color range. Preferably MAC or Inglot.

I have the freedom system brow powders from inglot & I really like them (I also like the brow wax) I think 566 is a nice ashy color for blondes.

There's also a few nice crease shades in the rainbow eyeshadow refills (almost all my powder products are inglot, I would have to drive an hour & a half to get to my nearest pro cosmetics supplier & I really need to play with shadows) I basically built myself a dupe viseart palette from inglot.

Re: crease colors, what about Mac Wedge or Soba? Soba is on the deep golden side. But if you use it with a light hand it could very nice.

I really like Ben Nye's brow pencil in Light Brown for redheads, it has a very reddish undertone. MAC's brow pencil in Fling is lovely for blonder ladies. For eyebrows MAC shadows in Omega and Coquette are nice for blondes and Charcoal is good for dark blonde through brown shades.

You can use any color eyeshadow on any skin tone. You simply select a shade of the desired color that has flattering undertones for the individual. With time and practice this will come more easily.

This is true but when sometimes I want my crease to be neutral almost like my skin and I find it helps colors blend better. I would use colors like Swiss Chocolate and Saddle, I dont think those colors are neutral for Caucasian skin. Maybe if I wanted to define their crease.

Oh and for a neutral/natural crease how about just translucent powder to blend out?

Lorac pencil in Auburn is for gingers. And BitchSlap pigment in Hottest B on the Planet could make a good brow powder for gingers too.

Kryolan has a wonderful matte eyeshadow palette with neutral skin tone, eyeshadow and basic contour shades. I use it on almost every job. It's about 18 colors for $50.

For brow colors I have a MAC quad palette and in it I have Omega, Mystery, Brun and Charcoal Brown eyeshadows that I sometimes mix with black for a perfect shade (that palette is (c) Pixiwoo, by the way big_smile ).

I did have a look-see at the Inglot waxes, but I have to say I didn't find them pigmented enough. Just wax. In that case, I would much rather use an eyeshadow and Illamasqua brow seal. Or MUFE liquid color for brows (the one in tubes, can't remember the name now).

Personally, I'm not a fan of pencils...

I will give you that, you really don't get color (or much hold) out of the inglot waxes. I like them for shine & texture though.

This is going to sound really ghetto, but Jordana brow powders are the business. They're two dollars a pop and are good texture and good color payoff. They work nicely on brows and on your lids. I'm not a big fan of brow pencils anyway.

I love the Smashbox Brow Tech you get a lighter and darker shade plus wax for each shade.  Also use Mac Fling a lot for blond to light brown hair.
