Been told I should tint my eyebrows...

I count myself lucky to have naturally very fair hair - baby blond almost and even hairdressers sometimes ask me where I get it coloured (never have)

I have matching blond eyelashes and eyebrows. I do colour the lashes to save messing about with mascara in the summer, but have never bothered with the brows. Every time I get my eyebrows shaped the therapist suggests I should have them coloured. It is true they could probably use some definition, but won't it look like I've dyed my hair?

Use a nearly run out mascara. Comb it through to get an idea of how it would look. I do this when I'm due an eyebrow dye.

I do dye mine (boris becker otherwise) and find it suits me but you have to get the right shade (like lippy should be the colour of the inside of your mouth- i.e. dont dye them too dark!) And make sure they are nicely plucked- shows up far more when dyed... grin

Lucky you having that blonde hair- lovely- and really rare! Tell me you tan too and I'll die of envy...

Thanks glitter, weelllll, I do burn very easily initially, but if I'm careful enough I can go a nice golden colour. Obviously wouldn't dream of doing anything so stupid and deliberately getting tan though grin

I'm the same as you, very blonde with light almost invisible eyebrows. I use benefit brow zings and it's excellent. It's the perfect shade and doesn't budge all day. I tan easily in the summer and my darker eyebrows definitely give my eyes some much needed definition. I don't feel 'normal' without my eyebrows anymore! (or mascara)
