Eyebrows; would you?

Excuse my face. I've been gradually having my hair lightened and now I think my eyebrows are too dark. Would you lighten them?
It also bothers me that they seem to start too far away from the middle, but if I fill them in I look ridiculous.

Any advice? Opinions on my new hair colour also welcome!

I love your "eyebrows" expression OP!

I know nothing about make-up really but I also feel like my eyebrows start too "far out" so I just add a tiny bit with one of those very fine brow pencils. But just a tiny bit like a millimetre, blended into the rest and a very light touch. It's surprising how very small changes can make your face look different.

Don't know about lightening - lots of people have darker eyebrows with lighter hair and yours look like the right colour to me. I'd worry that if you lighten you might get an odd colour you don't like IYSWIM.

Your eyebrows are great OP 👍

I think your brows look good with your hair colour cos they’re both cool toned they work together.

I think your hair and brows go together as both cool toned.

Have you ever had a brow tint? That might help with the shape but I agree with PP, I would try and fill in the tiniest part in the middle. Plus the ends to balance out! But don't use a warm toned tint or pencil!

Thanks all, relieved I dont look ridiculous. At the moment I fill them in a bit with one of those little powder stick things, I think its quite a warm tone though so I can change that.

I feel like if I draw any "extra" on the wider part I end up looking grumpy grin

I've never had a brow tint as Ive always had dark hair up until a couple of months ago, does it take much to maintain?

A cool toned powder or pencil will be better!

No you can either tint yourself or have them done. For me it doesn't last that long but i get a good week. It just seems to pick up on the invisible hairs around your brows/they dye those so you get a good shape!

OP maybe try Anastasia dipbrow promade. When I was blonde I used it in the colour Taupe which worked well. Now that I’m back to light brown I use it in Ash brown to keep them darker and to avoid any warm tones.
