  • A simple eyebrow pencil by Maybelinne. They are red and usually two in a pack They are inexpensive and found at any drugstore, target,walmart,kmart. If your hair is dark buy the dark brown or black. If it is really light use the light brown. Don't draw them on. Hold the pencil and brush it in the opposite way thwe hair grows until they are darkened to your taste. then smooth the brow down.

  • I found the best way to get nice eyebrows is buy a brown color of eye shadow and a wedge eyebrow brush. Tap the brush to the eyeshadow and "draw" your eyebrow at an angle with the brush. Looks way better and less messy than eyebrow pencils.

  • Not as thick when you apply it, and my suggestion is easier to remove.

  • Not if you apply it the way I described. It is a very natural look. No 'drawn on' look.

  • I agree that eyebrow pencils get messy...at least for me...I manage to rub my eyes or something and smudge it across my face. I would dye what you have if you can...aside from that, the eye pencils or powder do help but either way you go you'll have to be careful and watch them. They're also getting a lot better with permanent make up too! Something to look into anyway!

  • You can use a brown eyeliner pencil to darken and shape then trace them with a concealer. Heres an example:
