I'm very fair and my eyebrows are mostly blonde. I usually touch them up with brownish eyeshadow, using a thin angled brush. However, last night I bought Maybelline Tattoo Studio, a waterproof eyebrow gel that's supposed to last two days. I bought Soft Brown, but it's pretty severe for my coloring. It lasted overnight and some was even there after I took my shower...I had to rub pretty hard to get it off. I might try to get it in a lighter color.

This is what I do. I use Just for Men beard dye in Medium Brown. I mix it in a little glass dappen dish (equal parts dye and developer), stir with a q-tip, then apply to brows for 5 min. Wipe off, then rinse away any residual dye.

My hair is white/silver, and my brows are naturally the same. Sigh. I used to have dark brown hair.

Several months ago, I decided I wanted more thickness to my brows, so I had them microbladed. So between the dye and microblading, Iím finally very happy with my brows.

After my ex called me "featureless", I got mine tattooed. It's been 12 years now and they are still fine. When the rogue gray one pops up, I can pluck it, but the brown tattoo covers it up pretty well. Permanent make-up was a life-saver for me, not being a huge make-up fan. (I'm fair, too: nothing to see here, folks)

I would love to do microblading, but the healing process scares me. Apparently it's a couple weeks of scabbing and patchy color. No thanks.

I use Wunderbrow. It says that it lasts up to 3 days, which I find to be true only if you don't shower and only carefully wash your face around it. There is residual left unless you use their cleanser, but it doesn't look the same as when you first put it on. However, it does last flawlessly for a full day the day you put it on.

I would also spring for the brush they sell separately, I think it makes a big difference in applying it

This product was recommended to me by a working actress in Hollywood in her 20s, and you can imagine how much she and her friends discuss make up! lol! So it's coming with a very good reputation.

Use masking tape and spray-paint them.

My sister has fair/gray eyebrows. She uses an eyebrow pencil. The benefits are that she puts on the color a bit higher than her actual eyebrows. It gives her this great look of permanent "SURPRISE!" on her face.

Oh, OP, I wish you luck! My brows are so bad (Iím 57) - I inherited the worst from everyone. I have thin nothing brows with (if I let them) 3Ē obnoxious monster hairs.


Being an artist (former), I used to be able to apply makeup and groom my brows with skill. I canít see well enough to do either anymore!

I canít see having powder blown or drawn on... if I could still see, Iíd be able to enhance my silly brow perhaps. Putting on eyeliner just makes me laugh. For some reason it doesnít stick anymore. I assume it has to do with chemical changes as I age.

My pet peeve is droopyness. No amount of contouring fixes droopy lids.

I guess Iíve given up.

Thatís funny, but I have to say, when I use pencil I go over the top of the brow and not the bottom. It might be because I am so fair, but when I fill in and line the bottom it looks like a shadow and kind of saggy. I blend with a spoolie down into the brow and then brush into place.

Anastasia Brow Wonder. Its a creamy powder that you brush on to the brows with a tiny mascara like wand. But it is not mascara like at all. It is one of my favs.
