THANK YOU~
I have had trouble with the eyeliner trick, considering it always sticks to my skin under my eyebrows, and I don't want to scrub too hard.

I know I'll be using your advice for all of my future cosplays!

For most blondes, I imagine the paint colour 'yellow ochre' would be perfect. That's what I'm planning on using. It's sort of a browny-yellow ish kind of colour.

I have been attempting this method since before Oatakon,and still have not gotten the fantastic results displayed on this forum I've been using FolkArt paint, waited for the glue to dry completely before painting,waxed/plucked/brushed my eyebrows. Everytime I finish painting, my some of the individual eyebrow hairs (which are very black, and fairly thin) do not retain the new color. It is apparent that they have been colored, but the black "shows" underneath. Sadly, this is not mere matter of my eyebrows not looking realistic;the truth of the matter is they look utterly terrible. Has anyone else had this problem, or experienced something similar? Any tips for getting complete coverage?

Wow! That's amazing =O I must try this just for the heck of it! lol My eyebrows go with blonde or brown hair pretty well and that's all I end up cosplaying as, but I will definitely keep this in mind when I need other colors. I'm writing this down! lol

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! *bows deeply*

I am going as Sakura to AWA and was freaking out about my dark eyebrows and how to turn them pink; I was going to get some hair highlighter that this other cosplayer Ami Yuy used, but its damn expensive. This saved me a lot! I just got to remember not to rub my eyebrows too much during the con.

Question: Does the glue ever crack? Does it ever become that stiff, like could I do weird facial expressions and it stay?

Question: How thick are you putting the glue on? You could try putting on more layers of glue and or paint. Otherwise, try buying a higher viscosity paint. Cheapie paints aren't very thick, and will often show through the colours beneath them. High viscosity paints are much thicker, and don't have this problem. (Please note that I haven't actually tried this tutorial myself yet, and am just theorising on the basis of what I've learnt about paint in art at school. n_n; )

Again, not that I've done this tutorial myself, but theoretically, it shouldn't. PVA/School Glue (whatever you call it in your country, seems to be different everywhere) is quite flexible, and while it'll be stiffer than not having anything, I should imagine you should still have most of your freedom to eyebrow waggle. :3

Nope. The glue never cracks, paint never chips. Think of it as... putting hair gel over your eyebrows, same sort of idea

And yes, ofcourse you can move your eyebrows. Haha, I'd be very concerned if you couldn't.

Like I said, it feels like dried hairgel

yes the first few minutes, you'll find it weird to have your eyebrows glued. It's not a sensation we are familiar with. But I can guarantie that by the end of the day, you won't feel like something is stick to your face anymore.

...thank you forever for this! I'm going to have to use this to cover my boyfriend's black eyebrows for Dante (lol SILVER-WHITE). :] I used a creme eyeshadow stick before, and while it worked okay, it kept rubbing off.

I have an extensive collection of FolkArt paints and can pick up a school glue stick tomorrow.

(I love you so very very much)
