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.
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 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 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.
