I often see advice, that having your eyebrows shaped goes along way to making a person appear more groomed/polished/professional

I definitely use this apperiach with nai?s and good haircut. But my eyebrows are so sparse, I've never plucked them at all. Would it even be possible to shape mine and would it make a noticeable difference?

You may have more hair there but it's fine and light so a tint would make them look fuller and then a shape. Even if you don't have a lot of hair there will still be strays all the way down the lid and they will look much rider after a wax or thread.
You can use a brow powder to create more of shape and darken them.

My brows are very sparse and in the past , dyeing them has made them worse looking because it just highlights the fact they finish abruptly.

I use a brow pomade applied with a stiff slanted brush, then comb through with a clean mascara wand.
The powder + wax has the same end result, though I'd probably get the powder on my cheek.

I never have to pluck mine, let alone go to a threader though I do have some nifty fine tweezers (Boots No7) for any which are brave enough to grow in the wrong place.

Benefit do a great little set called Brow zings which is a powder and wax compact. It comes in lighter and darker shades, and includes instructions and tweezers. Its ace and looks pretty natural especially if you're a bit fair like me, as often eyebrow pencils are too dark.

It also removes quite easily so easy to redo if you get it wrong!

Thanks, but hmmmm...don't think I would be bothered width applying wax and powder etc.

I'll maybe go and see an eyebrow person and ask them about tints
