My eyebrows are not very dark, so it works without bleaching... however, I use a pink lipliner or a teal kajal instead of ye olde brown eyebrow pencil. Works just fine, though the lip liner is a tad more on the durable side...

(By the way I had such a great laugh a couple of days ago. Sat on the train, when some stereotype chavette stared at me in a mixture of fear, fascination and dimwittedness. I stared back, and so she pointed at my eyebrows and asked: "Uhm-uh, are thethe tattooed?" - I really had a hard time not to piddle my pants... as well as the dude who sat next to me. ;D)

Teehee!

It's Barry M all the way for me. Got one of those retractable eyeliners the other day and the actual liner (the case/stick...was a bit different) matched enchanted forest perfectly.
The first time I tried it I looked ridiculous! Really big green caterpillars cos I managed to get more on the skin underneath than the hair. Made me look like a mouldy witch.
But after I cleaned them up a bit with a baby wipe it was really effective.

Saw a colour in the Barry M retractables which would probably match your hair (can't remember the colour name though) and they had one a bit lighter and also a slightly darker one so you can choose how you want your look to be.

Good luck!

Yeah that's one thing you do have to be careful with. Don't apply it too hard. Just run the colour over the hairs of the eyebrow, don't push it down into the skin.

If you're using the eyeshadow method though it actually helps a little to get some on the skin, it brings out the colour more.

I can't believe I hadn't thought of using barry m eyeliners in all their colourful glory! In all my endeavours with coloured hair I've always just resorted to the dark brown / almost black eyebrow pencil as it goes with everything and I have one of those faces that needs a bit of definition given somewhere on it as I have a moon face ;)

I would love to be able to try this but my eyebrows are so thick and dark and awful I don't think I would get very far :P

Nothing a set of tweezers, some Jolen and a bit of patience can't cure.

I might do, I get them waxed properly every now and then when I start failing at shaping them myself... they are awful though, if I left them alone I look like this-



only not quite as happy as him cos my eyebrows are munting.

Full on LOL @ Piestar!

I tried coloured eyebrows once but I just looked ridiculous so wiped it all off straight away. Wish I could pull it off!

Cjiadon -Sorry for the late reply. I use a Kryolan cream liner - a light blue colour which I bought before realising Boots No7 had a similar one at that time. D'oh! Don't know if they stock it anymore, but basically any matte creamy eye product will do. Gel liner works for me because it's a bit more smudge resistant, but I have seen people use the Barry M pencils to great effect. Sometimes I also darken up parts with matte blue eyeshadow. Mostly I just use the matte blue eyeshadow swept through dry, but it's more noticeable with some kind of liner :) You could also set the powder with a mixing medium (Illamasqua sealing gel/benefit shellaq/a mac one or maybe a clear mascara/brow gel. Yeah... I'm a make up nerd. The coloured brow bit has been the most exciting part of blue hair for me haha!

Also, gonna say I know I didn't match my hair but well... my excuse is turqoise brows are cool! I think I want a turqoise streak or fringe next time I redye. And I'll be searching here for advice about that.

Ruthy, I think it looks great!  I have one of those smokey eyeshadow pencils are are think and go on kind of like a smooth pencil liner.  Do you think that would work?  It only cost me two bucks so it's a cheap one.  I know sometimes cheap is okay and other times not.  I don't really know much about makeup.
