I have very few brows left, 66, but a nice shape, just no hair. want so much to do perm make up or microblading, but not
$ feasible now. Use Maybelline Brow define and fill duo, but actually just use the pencil part, in either blond or brown, easy to define and fill with just the pencil part. Until I'm totally blind, I will continue to use. I believe brows are essential in making women look younger, it's brows, lips and boobs....LOL

Go to NAPA Auto Parts and get ya some of that black engine paint. Sticks real well and is heat resistant up to 1500 degrees!

I use this once every 4-6 weeks as needed.

Godefroy Professional Tint Kit

https://www.amazon.com/Godefroy-Prof...s%2C229&sr=8-5

I started because I was getting more gray hairs than I wanted to pluck, but then I noticed dying my brows a little darker than normal was an easy way to enhance them all of the time, not just when wearing makeup.

Not as good a deal but less money to just try it out..........

Regular hair dye will work just be careful getting it on the skin. For just your brows use the color kit for doing roots. It comes with a little brush that will help putting it on or use an old clean eyelash brush.

I have an eyebrow and eyelash dye in my Amazon cart right now. I am going to give it a try.

Yes the makeup that you put on like mascara is a good alternative if you actually have eyebrows but they are pretty pale/gray. I also have a big pencil I use from sephora, but there are only two colors.

My eyebrows are basically invisible, since I'm a natural redhead with light strawberry-blonde body/facial hair; so I feel your pain, lol! Mostly I just don't care enough to do anything about it, but I do have a light reddish-brown "brow powder" I'll use when I'm dressing up or something. And when I get my hair colored (to cover the gray), I have the stylist do my eyebrows too with the leftover dye. It usually lasts a few weeks, and she doesn't charge me any extra for that. I'm gonna have to check out Ulta, though, as suggested earlier in the thread... since I only get my hair professionally done MAYBE once or twice a year, that would be cool for the time between.

I used to use the Godefroy tint, but found it barely lasted a few days despite their claims. These days I use a special brow mascara called "Color Your Gray." It's cheap and I love it.

And that Godefroy is over twice as much as Just for Men beard dye.

Someone kindly pointed out I said eyelashes and then eyebrows. I'm sorry I didn't better proofread my post. It is definitely eyebrows I have a problem with. I have ordered a combination of some products and see how I like each one and then I'll go one to others. After some research, I definitely know I will NOT try microblading.
