Yes.
You can get any paint color that you can find with this method. If there is brown paint, you can have brown eyebrows.

wow, this thread is a god send! I have been trying to get my eyebrows to better match my cosplays for a while now, especially when it comes to blond or crazy colored wigs. I will have to give this a try =)

Ack, I wish this thread was out when I was cosplaying Hitsugaya! Now that costume is retired and I have no more opportunities to wow people with white eyebrows.

Ah well, I'll keep this in mind for future costumes that need funky-colored eyebrows. Thanks so much! =]

I love this. I turned my thick, dark eyebrows bright turquoise for Formal!Eureka - people kept coming up to me and mentioning that they didn't often see people go all out with their eyebrows, and how cool it was.

And when I washed it off, my eyebrows felt all soft and clean. =D

This looks like a good idea and I have to try it with my past failures!

I do have some questions: why would you need to stiffen your eyebrows with the glue? Can't you just use a washable paint? Would stiff eyebrows be uncomfortable/feel weird?
I am looking to make my eyebrows thicker and bigger to crossplay, would you do anything differently for this?

I thoughtpeople would like to know that if you arent getting full coverage with this method its probably because your eyebrow hairs dont all go the same way. one of my friends has curly, cow licked eyebrows that she smooth out every morning with eyebrow wax but for you guys with this problem Id suggest first brushing the glue aginst the grain(ea. from your ear to your nose) of your eyebrow, smoothing it down with a brush going with the grain of your brow (from nose to ear), and then brushing on more glue going with the grain.

if you have dark eyebrows simply putting on a coat of paint wont work too well. butting on the glue first means you only have to coat once or twice and it keeps the paint from flaking

So, I tried this method the other night and got a somewhat-decent result. With the glue am I supposed to put enough coats for my eyebrows to be white? Because after letting the glue dry after one coat, it was clear and my eyebrows rather stiff, I added the paint and it just didn't look natural... maybe it's because I have super thin eyebrows but should I maybe do a coat of white before adding the color?

Perhaps mix the paint with the glue, thus thinning the paint and only doing one layer?

Sorry to double post.

So I've tried this method with a few different twist and with my thin eyebrows I have found that mixing the paint with the glue and using a mascara brush as an aplicator is most natural looking way to do my eyebrows in less then 10 min. it would look more natural if i had time to go through and glue every hair and then paint every hair but I dont so this works.
