I use regular hair gel to hold my eyebrows down…I would think a nice brow brush and a fairly thick hairgel (not a thin one with a lot of alcohol) would do the trick! Or, you might want to try just a smidgeon of pomade (but not a lot so you don’t end up with a greasy forehead)

I so have that too! My eyebrows never stay put and they are very sparse. When I went to the MAC counter before my e-pic session, they filled in my eyebrows and also used eyebrow wax. Worked like a dream – my brows never looked so good! Naturally, I bought the brow brush, brow filler, and brow wax. 🙂

you can try trimming them if they are really long and going into random directions. You can also then try using some eyebrow gel, something like from MAC.

I really like using Shu Uemura’s Hard Formula Eyebrow Pencil (seal brown) but you can find a colour more suitable for you. I can show you a pic of my eyebrows if you want 🙂

Two words… clear mascara. Does the exact same thing.

I know cover girl makes one and sephora makes one. If I remember correctly, there is even a cheapo brand (maybe wet and wild?) at wal mart that carries this too.

anastasia is known for their eyebrow products.  they have an eyebrow gel that comes in a similar container as mascara and works really nicely.  you can buy their products at sephora as well.

i ditto the trimming of the longer hairs with an eyebrow hair trimming scissor.

as for the gap… i have nearly no eyebrows – and this is not because I went crazy and plucked them all out in high school (i know so many asian girls with that problem) but I was seriously born with almost no eyebrows. I finally gave up on the eyebrow pencil in college and got them tattooed. It is one of the best decisions I have made. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but it looks really natural. You are supposed to go for touchups, but I never did, because I want it to look light and natural and I fill in as necessary with the laura mercier brow duo. it is a great duo powder set with a brush that has a thick and thin tip. the best!!

try lipocils eyebrow extender – has the clear gel with some little black fibers (looks like little bits of eyebrow hairs) so it will fill out your black spaces as well…

however i personally did not like it – but i don’t like the clear eyebrow gel stuff.

btw i use clinique brow shaper in charcoaled. throw out the brush that comes with the brow shaper – it’s total crap. it’s better to use some clean eyeshadow applicators!

Clear mascara does wonders on the brows!

One thing you might want to try is to get your brows threaded first~

and then before you do anything with your brows, comb it and tame it with a spoolie~~~ and anything that really stands out can be ‘trimmed’ without affecting the brow shape.  Then use brow pencil or powder as usual, seal with a wax~ sometimes using your finger tips with the wax really helps instead of a tool or brush, since the warmth of your fingers also helps *glue* it together and keep it in place.  Clear mascara works wonders too!
