I recommend you getting the Yves Saint Laurent Eyebrow Enhancer Duo



First you apply the colour (foamy end brush) that adds colour and enhances it, and then the mascara wand, that fixes the color and tames the brows.
It really darkens them and fixes!

This is my thread!!! You have to be carefull with black pencils- because they sometimes wear down to a blueish or purpleish hue- I use MAC 'Velvetone' eyebrow pencil- it is not quite coal/ink black but a lush smokey black- it is beautiful easy to use and dead on for my brows- (not quite black hair) I sometimes use Lancome's Gris Noir pencil wich is the only charcoal grey color pencil I have ever found- it is perfect- I can use the MAC one for more dark black looking brows that look completely natural or for a 'lighter' look I use the Lancome- the Lancome on me is like the equivalent of the Lindsaey picture, like the brows are a shade lighter- try it you won't be dissatisfied!!!

Depends how light your brows are...you might look odd with black brows with so light of a hair.

But, I reccomend the same as SofiaLuvs or a korean brand like Laneige I guess is the most common...their brow pencils are really good for some reason...I use the dark brown and my friend with light brown brows uses the same too with her new darker hair.

i second MAC Velvetone, i have black brows and using black eyepencil looks just plain wrong, Velvetone is a very dark brown that makes brows looking fuller. well lilo's brows also look odd since it's basically a black pencil bow drawn into her lighter browhair

i finished an awesome dark brown eyebrow liner... but couldn't find it again.
so in desperation grabbed a Bonne Bell Espresso Eyeliner = perfect!

i agree black eyebrow liners can give a freaky blue tinge
so this super-dark bitter chocolate colour just turned out to be perfect for me... i've got darkest-brown hair --- so dark that it looks black.

cheap and easy and good match.
