On the rare ocasion that I even remember I HAVE eye brows, I use a clinique brow pencil to fill them in a bit and define their shape.

I use a cover girl brow pencil because I dye my hair red and want my eyebrows to match.

Nothing. I can’t seem to do it without making myself look like Amelie.

I second the Covergirl suggestion. I’ve been using the Brow and Eye Maker pencil for probably 15 years now and I love it! (http://www.covergirl.com/brow&eyemakerspencil) It’s super cheap (like 2 pencils for $4) and it comes in a variety of colors. The only drawback is that you have to sharpen it. It’s not good for eyeliner IMO but great for brows.

My second choice would be Clinique’s superfine liner for brows. It is nice and thin, which makes it easy to lightly feather in the color. If it is applied right, this goes on very natural too. (http://www.clinique.com/product/1595/6332/Makeup/Brows/Superfine-Liner-for-Brows/index.tmpl)

I would pick a shade or two lighter than your actual hair color. It’s when you pick the darkest shade and you are a dark brunette like Amelie that it turns out like Amelie.
 

@AnnieAAA:  I find that brow pencils are less waxy and more “soft” in shade than eyeliners. Of the few times I’ve tried subbing in eyeliner pencils, it just goes on way thick and harsh, whereas brow pencils are better for feathering in the color so they look like hair, versus a thick, dark line of color. Plus, I think brow liners are usually harder (since brows are located on a bone) than eyeliner.

@lilbluebird:  Yeah, I have black hair and am pale, and have been using the pencils that match my hair. I’ll try one that’s medium brown. Thanks for the advice!

I’ve had very light eyebrows all my life. I have used everything under the sun, and so far my favorite has been MAC eyeshadow in Coquette. I think that color would work very well for your hair and skin tone.  I use a short bristled brush that is angled.  The eyeshadow was about $8, I believe, and the brush was $10.  It lasts about a year so it’s worth it. The covergirl pencils (red) are the second best thing I have tried. They are cheaper, but they lasted less time for me because every time I sharpened, it got shorter and then they break off and it’s just a waste. I wouldn’t recommend the medium brown for you because it has red tones in it. I think the light brown or even blonde would work. It looks different on the skin. Sorry this got super long. I’m passionate about eyebrows lol

I use an eyebrow pencil.  I can’t for the life of me remember what brand.  I just make sure to buy a shade lighter than what I automatically reach for – I don’t want to have that *classy* drawn-on eyebrow look lol.

I second Brow-Zings by benefit.  Been using it for years, then their brow gel on top to set.

Have you ever thought about coloring them?  I do mine but it only lasts a couple weeks at most.
