What product is best for drawing on eyebrows?

After I use a glue stick on my eyebrows, then cover them up with makeup I was wondering what is the best product to draw on eyebrows? I want my eyebrows to be a light greyish color. I tried using eyeliner but all the eyeliner is either silver and has a shimmer to it, or is a dark grey like slate. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I'd say eyeliner if you can find one in your color, or maybe try and mix eyeshadow in your color with clear brow/lash gel (elf has a great one for a dollar) and apply it with an eyebrow brush?

Any sort of powder would work. Find a good eye shadow or brow powder that matches the shade you'd like, load an angle brush, and draw away.

I believe NYX has a grey brow pencil, available at Ulta. The trick with grey brows is to mix in a little ash brown with the grey. Straight grey can look too blue and will automatically look out of place.

I use acrylic paint and/or eyeshadow. Eyeshadow looks more natural, but for lighter colors acrylic paint seems to stand out more.

Eye shadow or eyeliner or an eyeliner pencil. I've drawn in grey ones(although I put black on top) with grey eye shadow. Just try to get some that doesn't have a shimmer to it and you should be good. Make sure you also have a good thin makeup brush to use!

I have black caterpillars for eyebrows, so I just use white eyeliner and white eyelash primer. And I get grey. You can always go darker afterwards.
