I have never really known what to do with my eyebrows, but I am newly single and want to make more of an effort to boost my confidence a bit.
I feel like having them threaded is a waste of time as they have no natural shape? I like them thick and I don't want them chipping away at them to make a fake arch shape if that's not what my eyebrows do naturally. Should I also get them tinted a shade darker? I'm naturally blonde but have dark eyelashes and dyed white hair at the moment.
I think they are a really nice shape and colour naturally. If you dye them they'll look thicker and then you'd be wanting to fake thin them. As it is, with those lovely dark eyelashes, they look great! Could you go have an eyeshadow lesson instead to learn what works with your eye colour/eyebrow colour and shape?
oddity that's a really good idea about an eye make-up lesson. I'm pretty clueless in that regard. A delightful school teacher told me my eyes are too big for my face so I've never been too keen to draw attention to them
If they put makeup on my eyebrows to make them slightly darker I might be convinced to tint them if it looks good.
Mine are the exact same colour and I get them tinted brown. I started a few months ago and couldn't be without them now, I get them done once a month.bthe make such a difference to my face. If you do decide to tint, then you might not like them, the first day. It can be quite a shock the first few times you see yourself in the mirror! You need a day or so to get used to it.
So what colour am I asking them to be tinted? Will I not look silly with white hair and brown eyebrows? I have a similar thing to that Benefit wand copa but it's a dark blonde colour and from Maybelline I think. I just use that when I rarely put foundation on because my eyebrows seem to disappear into thin air. I really do need to start making more of an all-round effort to know what I'm doing
