Same here. I use the same lightish brown eyeshadow on my eyebrows (applied with a thin, soft brush) and on my eyes like liner. I find it really doesn't take much at all to fill them in, but it makes your whole face look dressed up.

Can anyone recommend a good brow powder that isn't too expensive? I have dark brown hair and somewhat sparse brows.

I use Covergirl Dark Brown eyeshadow, i have brown/black eyebrows & its work fine. Covergirl also has an eyebrow kit that comes with two tones of black/brown and a good eyebrow brush. Its the best drugstore eyebrow filler thing I can think of.

I have an eyebrow filler (powder) by Urban Decay, which I love. It comes in a little compact with mini tweezers, a brush, and wax to tame your brows, so that they maintain shape. It has two colours inside, dark brown and light. It's really lovely.

What is the best way to find a good waxer?

I'm moving to a new area where I don't know anyone, and I need someone to help me shape my eyebrows. They've just recovered from a complete waxing disaster (never let your waxer be arguing on the phone with someone while they're doing your brows! ) and now I'm really paranoid about finding someone who won't mess them up again.

I have naturally black eyebrows and my hair is now red, how I can color them so they match better? I've tried lighting them with concealer and putting brown over, but it never looks right. I don't get my hair dyed at a salon anymore so I can't get them dyed.

The only way I can think of is to ask someone who gets theres done in you area.

You'll have to bleach them. 'Jolen Creme Bleach' is quite popular, and easily accessible, so I'd try that.

eyebrow shaping/sculpting
I used to be a crazy overplucker. Several years ago I let them grow back in, but I have such a problem with them. The part closest to my nose wants to stick out in the opposite direction. I try to tame them, but they are still so demanding and want to do their own thing.

Does anyone have any ideas for a product that could coax them into staying in the correct direction without looking like I have wax on them?

i dont like the look of powder or pencil on me.

MAC Brow Set in Show-Off
i wipe most of it off the wand with a tissue and just use the residue on brush to tint my brows

but since i keep going light and lighter with my hair i think im going to get Beguile or Girl Boy next.

too bad its not waterproof lol i wouldnt want to get caught in the rain with this stuff but i think it should be okay since i use very little.

i just got my eyebrows tinted to light brown, i lovee it! they use a semi-permanent dye so it will fade gradually too to blend as it grows.

i love not having to put any brow makeup on

okay so i think my eyebrows are dark and they are but not that dark.

they are a soft black and my hair heavily highlighted to a light ash blonde...so basically a big fat no no.

this is what ive dont before and ive decided this is the best option for me is to bleach my brows myself with Jolen then go to salon for semi-permanent tint, basically a brown tint but left on for the shortest amount of time possible like a couple/few mins. its semi-perm so it will fade gradually and my natural hairs blend as they grow.

well this time i thought okay they said they could bleach them for me too instead of me doing it(i talked to a hairdresser about this before). turns out im better at it then them because they just wanted to put dye on top to try to lighten. from past experience it didnt work and neither did it this time. the owner put on a brown dye on them making them darker and groucho like...i thought he was bleaching until they started turning brown and im like wtf guys nooooo. so then they put the base color that i have in my hair which is a superlight ash brown/dark ash blonde(im not sure but thats what it looks like to me) to lighten that mess and it ended up dark brown. good grief!

i ended up going home and putting on the bleach cream for 10 mins just to lift it a litle and it came out to match my base color perfectly. now im LUCKY because im self-sufficient and have a fair amount of fearless trial and error to learn from! but i just wanted to share that with you guys. hope it helps if you ever decide to lighten brows that you dont have to suffer from other people's mistakes! dont get me wrong i love everyone at the salon but they just are learning themselves, its not often that their clients lighten their brows...they usually just keep it dark(which can be kind of ew).

for my next touchup(every five weeks) ill just bleach myself the day before and then go in for touchups and schedule a brow tint for afterwards!

^ How long do you leave in the Jolen bleach regularly? Are you Asian (I ask because I've seen you around the Asian Eyes thread)? Because I am and your hair color sounds similar to mine but my brows are still my natural color and they look soo out of place with my hair. If you had a picture of your hair color on a model/celebrity you could post, I would love you forever
