Recommended hair mascara for eyebrows?

Alright, so I'm going to be cosplaying Tsumugi Kotobuki, wearing an Arda wig in Dark Ash Blonde. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ardawig...7626699754840/

My eyebrows are very dark brown, and I saw posts on this forum talking about hair mascara and how it could help change the color of your eyebrows. I've taken a look around at various brands and colors online, but I have no idea which brand/color to buy. I want a brand that will work well and then a color that will look natural with the wig.

Can anybody help point me in the right direction with some recommendations and maybe even some photos? D:

The times I wore a platinum blonde wig, I brushed concealer through my brows using a disposable mascara wand. It seemed to do the job. I've also dusted light, taupe brown eyeshadow on top, and it looked good.

I've been wondering this too as I'm doing one with orange eyebrows, and one with blond eyebrows.

Oooh, that stuff seems to work well from the reviews I've seen.

I've bought 2 different types of hair mascara, which I don't remember the brand, -one being golden the other blonde- to use when cosplaying as a character with platinum blonde hair, and didn't really work for me. xD

That was probably normal though because I have the blackest of eyebrows.. I ended up bleaching them about 3 tones lighter, then dyeing them back to black after the convention. :3

Although that may have been my bad luck in mascaras. :C So you won't know if you don't try!
