    Please excuse the plastic doll like pose. Essentially im concerned my eyebrows are too thin and harsh.....what can I use to fill them out a bit? A lot of the pencils I use are waxy and look stupidly fake, like Ive got a marker pen and scribbled them on.

    BUT if the pencil isnt dark enough then you can see where i have hair and where i dont, so it looks silly.

    MAC used to do a brow powder that worked perfectly with their angled brow brush, but theyve since stopped making it.

    What do you think?

    They aren't too thin at all, unless the photo is when you've filled them in?

    Use a brow pencil slightly lighter than the hair colour.
    Also, less is more, just brush it against it so it leaves a light mark. It you try and colour your eyebrows in then it tends to look like the whole eyebrow is drawn on.

    No thats how they are

    I just wondered if they look hash because my hair is black, they arent really thick and are naturally stupidly high arched.

    They are quite harsh, but I think that if you made them any thicker then they would looker harsher because of the high arches. Maybe try drawing in a bit more of a curve and see how that looks? I do agree with another poster that they do look pretty fashionable as they are though

    I dont really have a choice, when I had them shaped she took like literally half of the damn things off...i look eyebrowless if i dont put something on.

    Thats the whole point of this thread, because what Im using isnt appropriate....as shown by the picture, hence Im asking for options until they grow back :sad:

    I have eyebrows like yours..! Count yourself lucky because a lot of people wish for arched eyebrows and unless it's natural, it's extremely hard to shape into.

    I too find using an eyebrow pencil very thick and crayon-like so I'd steer away from that unless you're going for the Jordan look.. I tend to "tint" mine every couple weeks and fill the gaps with a angled brush and black/dark brown EYE SHADOW.. It's a lot more natural =) x

    jesus you look scary

    just don't fill them in as much obviously, anything'll look better than it being like you've painted them on.

    Hey hun, do you have a picture of your eyebrows as they are naturally, pre-crayon? It'd help see what they look like without any makeup, so I know which would be the best product to use.

    I personally just tint mine with a black brow tint. I have similar eyebrows, but don't pencil them in, or they tend to look unnatural.
