Just commenting to follow!  I have nearly invisible brows because they are sooo light.

Oh yah, definitely don’t tattoo them!

I’m sure there must be ways of dying them, though I don’t know exactly as I am brunette. But I’d be leery of doing it at home since it’s your face – check out salons that dye hair, I bet they’d do brows as well.

My mom actually had her’s tattooed. It was a little painful but they look great and VERY natural.

ive had mine tattooed. they looked fantastic however, they only lasted about 3 years. the ink they use is so much more delicate and the nurse/aestetician doesnt ink as deep in the facial skin as standard tattooists do on other types of skin. i think tattooing the eyebrows is great, u just have to go to the right clinician who will use the right technique and ink and tools and pay the money for quality work.

My mom has hers tattooed as well and they look amazing; the woman who did it patented this technique called “Feathering”. Anyway, my mom paid an arm and a leg, but even 10 years later it looks great.

Personally, I tint my brows only when I change my hair colour. My eyebrows aren’t thin nor sparse, but I do it to flatter the hair colour. Others may think differently, but I don’t think I would recommend tinting unless you’re doing it to more closely match your hair colour, rather than using it to fill in sparse areas.

I have never done it but a close friend of mine has. She has very very blonde hair and eyebrows. She got her brows tinted for her wedding and they looked wonderful. It looked very natural and I would never have known she “tinted” them if she didn’t tell me.

@ana77:  I use regular permanent hair dye from Sally’s – they have such a huge range of colors. I don’t buy special dye for eyebrows, I just go for regular hair dye. the instructions say to not do that, but I don’t see why not. I’ve been doing it for more than 10 years just fine.

for color: I would start with only one shade darker than the hair on your head, in a neutral tone. “warm” can come across too yellow and “cool” can just look weird on the face. 

I use a amall brush to apply it, about the size of an eyeliner brush only stiffer (purchased from an art store). if it gets on my skin it can stain it for a day or two, so the little brush helps me keep the dye “inside the lines” so I don’t end up with big weird looking brows. 

I touch mine up every 3 weeks. it seems to fade faster than the hair on my head, I think because new growth is so noticeable in such a tiny area. honestly, this process only takes me about 10 minutes, it’s totally worth the trouble!

one more thing: tweeze the brows after you dye them.  if you do it before, they can get irritated.
