I've plucked and tried training my eyebrows for years into nice arches with little success. Even hair gel and lip balm to fail keep the fine hairs in place. Anyone else have this problem? Does eyeshadow, liner, and mascara look odd with Meridith Viera type eyebrows?

No, not everyone has "perfect" brows, and yes, they wear eye makeup.

What is wrong with Merdeith's eyebrows? They look fine to me. By the way she is not aging well at all. I think she is one of the very very few celebrities that haven't had work done. At least it doesn't seem like she has. She's got a ton of wrinkles and she's only 56.
Have you ever had your brows professionally waxed?

Whatever you do don't ever shave them and draw them back in!

Ever heard of alopecia areata?
Or chemotherapy?

I understood what you meant by that. Don't worry. I think if the OP had one of those conditions she would have mentioned it in her post.

Use an eyebrow brush to push all of the hairs up vertically. Then, using small scissors (manicure scissors work well) cut the hairs slightly so that they do not bend and bow out. (If you can see where the eyebrow hairs bend over at the end, cut there.) Just be very, very careful not to cut them too short. Then, once you brush them back into place, they should fall into place; however, your eyebrows will look much lighter so you should sparingly use an eyebrow pencil (very smudged, no harsh line) to make your eyebrows look natural again. Try watching a video on Youtube before you try anything.

I recently got a double ended tube new product Revlon Brow Fantasy, and I like it a whole lot. I too am picky about my brows. Having them perfect (nicely shaped, not too thin or fake) makes my whole face look fresh. I have experienced, at 42, a bit of hair loss right in the center where I never pluck-its weird! But anyhow, I use light brown and the pencil shapes the edges and the tinted gel is very subtle for control and soft sheen.
I really love it, it was a bonus at Ulta and I see why. Once you try it you will love it.
