I've managed to get to my 40s without touching my eyebrows but want a more defined shape.

What can I do with them? No slug or HD eyebrows even though I'm weirdly drawn to them it's not a look I want myself.

So any suggestions?

They are very light? Are you fair? A good thread would shape those up lovely for you, I've given up on threading as it's so painful but if you can stand it the results are good. If you don't want a tint an eyebrow pencil in a light shade would give them a little more definition. They are quite a nice shape already though.

Mine are naturally very similar to yours op, they were waxed (infinitely less painful than threading) and tinted on Thursday. I really like how they look now.

Yes @maudlinmaud I was light ginger well until the grey started taking over. I keep walking past those threading places but my eyes water plucking the odd grey one.

@euphemia I lick them down in the morning grin as I look like worzle Gumage in morning. I'm bit of plain Jane with makeup wouldn't have a clue how to use brow pencil without it looking like my DS has done it.

@Losgunna oh I like your eyebrows that's kind of look I'm after they look natural and defined. How often do you need to get them tinted? And is waxing less painful than threading

Waxing is far less painful than threading smile

I'd get them threaded and then get an eyebrow mascara, Nyx do excellent ones which are very reasonable..I much prefer eyebrow mascara to pencils which are often harsh and unflattering

I have mine either threaded/waxed and tinted and get my eyelashes tinted at the same time about every 6 weeks.. Makes such a difference.

I don't find threading painful at all, I get my eyebrows threaded every week.

I'd get them tinted if I were you. Or try a brow bar for a makeover.

Benefit do great stuff for eyebrows, try gimme brow or browzings in a lighter shade.

Threading gets a better shape than waxing, then a lightly tinted eyebrow gel would help give them a little more prominace without going overboard

You have lovely thick and nicely shaped eyebrows! I suppose you could tint them if you wanted them to be more prominent.

Losgunna Sun 19-Mar-17 13:23:11

Waxing is a bazillion times less painful than threading. Threading always takes too much away too I find. I think it depends on your natural shape which looks better. Mine definitely looks better waxed than threaded.

I get mine waxed and tinted at the same time and it costs me a tenner.
Tint lasts about a month but I wash my face properly at least once a day sometimes twice to keep the spots at bay so could probably last six weeks depending.

I don't get on with brow products at all, they all seem to give me the dreaded scouse brow, which despite living in Liverpool I'm very keen to avoid.

Also just to be warned, tints look a bit full on on day one but it's just the dye on your skin and goes after a wash
