I have extremely light blonde AND SPARSE eyebrows; you can literally not see them. My ideal eyebrow shape would be arched and on the thinner side. I also dye my hair dark brown so I must fill them in so I don’t look weird. No matter what I fill them in with (pencil, powder..) I cannot get it to look natural. I do pluck out stray hairs because they irk me (and like I said I like my brows on the thinner side). This is a problem because when I go and fill them in, the product gets into the opened pores because I plucked the hair away (I have to draw outside my natural brows because they are VERY uneven)..which all it does is highlight the pores. (This can happen several days after plucking.) I can’t get them to look natural because either they look very waxy or just very fake. It also seems like any of the products don’t like to adhere to my skin, even with primer potion underneath, and they tend to diminish and fade not too long after applying. I have a hard time filling in certain spots because I have more hair in certain spots of my brow then others. When this happens, the parts with hair end up darker than the spots without hair. I seem to like more eyebrow pencils than shadows because the shadows seem too 1-dimensional and dull to me. However, I’ve tried several different pencils over the years and I keep getting this weird effect…I can only relate it to when I was young and colored with those off-brand crayons instead of Crayola! Those off brand crayons tend to not color well and you can definitely tell they are waxy. Do you think a gel based product would work better? Or would that be too harsh and be more likely to smudge and diminish? (i tend to get oily skin/sweat a lot :/ )
I know this was long! I hope it made some sense and that perhaps any of you could recommend better tips or products? Thank you!July 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm #181838
Hmm… I have a friend thar has darker hair and has super blonde brows, so she dyes them. Maybe you should grow them out completely and then dye them. The shape them and use a powder to fill in the sparse area’s.
I have thin eye brows but I grow them out once a year and reshape them, as well as giving them a chance to grow after plucking so much. And I typically pluck every 10 to 15 days. I use a pencil and a powder to fill/darken.July 17, 2012 at 8:41 pm #181860
I’ll echo the suggestion to dye your brows and then fill them in. In regards to filling them in, if you want a gel product, MUFE has a waterproof brow corrector.
