    Default Eyebrow products - do you use something?

    I've decided to have a crack at dying my own hair a dark brown (currently medium brown with grown out blonde foils).

    I'm thinking my brows might need a slightly darker appearance if I'm sporting dark hair, however I don't want to go for dramatically filled-in brows as I think it might be a bit too much of a strong look considering I don't wear heavy makeup.

    What products do you use/recommend for brows? Seems to be a greater range of products around than ever before (gels/powders etc.).

    My brows are quite sparse, so I like to fill them in, without them looking too 'sculpted', and have a hard time finding brow products in the right colour, so I use a shadow primer (too faced) over my lids and eyebrows, and use an eyeshadow and a fine angled eyebrow brush to fill them in. It's perfect.

    But, I hear amazing things about Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow and Benefit Gimme Brow. There are cheaper alternatives, I know Australis does a brow kit, as does E.L.F, but I'm not sure how they compare to higher end products in the brow department!

    I use a brow powder (or eyeshadow) if I want a natural look, or pomade for a more defined brow. Both applied with an angled brush and then a spoolie brush to finish.

    I bought a cheap Essence (from Priceline) powder and pomade duo to get me through until a makeup order arrived and it's actually really good, so that's an option if you want something to learn with.

    I dye my eyebrows as they are fairly light and I like the contrast of blonde hair and darker eyebrows.

    In between dying I use a brown pencil eyeliner and brush it on with my eyelash brush (which often has a bit of mascara on it) it works really well I didn't even know you could get powder especially for you eyebrows so that's good to know!

    I use the elf eyebrow kit, it's only $8
    or so from kmart but I really like it! I got it to play around with until I could afford a decent one but I'm happy with it. It's a gel and setting powder.

    My brows do not need too much done. I usually just put through a coloured brow gel and sometimes some powder.

    ETA. I use benefit gimme brow as the brow gel and the benefit brow zings (I think thats what its called) for the powder.

    I use an eyebrow pencil that has a brush on the other end.

    Anastasia Brow - dip brow Pomade, I had my eyebrows tattoo'd - feather touch brows. I was a massive over plucker as a teenager and ended up with rainbows. Lol the tattooing gave me shape but the feather strokes didn't stick 100% after 3 tries.. So now I just fill them in with the dip brow
