A rising trend with the advent of pastel hair colours, M.A.C now has a collection that includes dedicated, pastel eyebrow pencils

Pastel eyebrows. Depending on how you look at it, it can be a YES! or a strict no-no. But if dyeing your eyebrows a shade more commonly found in a confectionery seems like a big commitment, why not try an eyebrow pencil instead? Disclaimer: These pencils work best on blonde (or lightened brows), though they can add a slight tint to darker brows. If you really want the colour to show, get your brows professionally lightened if this is your first time, as the brow area (for obvious reasons) is very delicate.


M.A.C's Dare Hue! Brow Pencils come in fun pastel shades — pink, mint, lavender and peach —  as well as nude and soft gold hues that serve as great accents to any brow look. Since they're limited edition, we would recommend stocking up on your favourite shades — it's not easy to find an eyebrow pencil that has staying power and comes in these unusual colours.

Complementing the collection is 12 delectable soft serve shadows, so named for their bouncy, creamy texture that glides on smoothly, sans any creasing. Go for pastel blues, peaches and pinks to create that pastel on pastel effect, or create contrast with slightly bolder shades like sparkling golds and soft taupes. Whatever the combination you choose, go crazy. After all these colours can easily be wiped away at the end of the day.


$31-$38. Available from 3 June at M.A.C counters and stores
