This is awesome! I bought the supplies for this about a month ago, and just tried it a few minutes ago. I love the result! I'll be using it for my Harry Potter costume to make my eyebrows darker and more manly. Thanks for suggesting it!

I have acrylic paints that come in the toothpaste-like tubes. Can those be used?

Oh my god, I can't thank you enough for this! I just got a light pink wig a few days ago for my Miwako Sakurada costume and was just thinking how ridiculous my dark eyebrows look with the wig! Curse having dark brown hair!

Thanks again!

Yup, I've used those. As long as its acrylic and there's glue put on your eyebrow first, you'll be fine ^^

This was quite the heavenly post to see after I ordered red mascara for my brows only to find that it was stolen out of the package! >:O I do have a question though since I haven't tried this yet. So far, it looks alright on the samples I've seen, but say you want it to look not-so matted down. If you took a brow comb, would that totally ruin it? Just so that your brows are loosened up a little bit to make it look a bit more natural? I supposed I'll have to experiment with this with my friends, we've got a couple weeks to try this.

I hadn't even thought of coloring my eyebrows - I thought it'd be too much trouble. But after reading this, I may just give it a shot. Great tutorial! :3

I've actually got a few photos of me with painted eyebrows for my Vexen cosplay; I have to admit I did think it looked kind of obvious up close, but in photos you couldn't even tell it was painted. However, they did sweat mostly off after a day of baking in my cosplay. I forgot to touch them up, so my regular icky brow colour was mostly back at the day's end. X_X

(Distant photo) http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2041800/

I used tan acrylic paint for my blonde wig, fyi.

I tried it out and it worked pretty good.
It might have worked a lot better if I waited for it to dry, but im impaitent.
I turned my black eyebrows into a nice red color (for Axel from kingdom hearts)
Im going to make Xemnas's eyebrows turn from dark brown (and very full cause its a boy) to silver. Hurray 2 dollar method!!!

THANKYOU!!
