I use two things depending on what color my hair is that day (usually lighter in summer, darker in winter)

Urban Decay’s brow pencils, or NYX brow pencils.  I like UD’s because it’s an actual pencil, but the NYX is a twisty thing!  =)  haha lovin my terminology, ya?

also, I know they sell little shader things, where you place it over the brow and you just shade in where the cut out is! ( I think i’ve seen these at walmart!)

I have very similar issue so you are not alone 🙂 U can fill the gaps with brow pencil, brow powder or just light matt grey / brow eyeshadow. Using powder will make it look more natural & you’ll need to experiment to see what you like. Look it up on YouTube, there are plenty of tutorials on it 🙂

I use Benefit Brow Zing…which has a wax to keep the hair in place and a powder to darken them.

Too Faced Brow Envy kit.  I just bought this at Ulta and I’m in love.  It includes two shades of powder to fill in with, wax, highlighter, pencil, tweezers, the whole works! There are also three templates to help you fill in and instructions to show you the steps.  It makes a huge difference… only problem is the blonde shade is a little too dark for me but I just combine it with a lighter shadow that I have and it works great!

I use a MAC brow shadow kit to fill in and it’s great, easy to use and precise. I am also quite vigilant about getting them threaded every two weeks by the same aesthetician.

Have you ever had your eyebrows done professionally? I get mine threaded and they always use scissors for the bits that are a bit wild and too long. You could probably do that with the side part where they are growing upwards and that ‘peak’, I just wouldn’t trust myself to do it! Then just fill in that part so it is more even with the thicker part of your brow. 

If you get them done professionally then you can just main them yourself once you have the shape!

The powder wont rub off. I rub my eyes sometimes too.

Some people use clear mascara to make their eyebrows stay. You can use it with powder or pencil. If you use powder, get a thin angled brush. Or, you can use a brow kit, like the one someone posted above, which has wax.

There are a few tutorials on this site. Search “eyebrow tutorial”. The ones from Mrs Rainbow & Mrs Cherry Blossom come up near the top.
