    Anyhow, I want to darken my brows....just a little. Not looking to get that defined look or that obvious cut that some guys carry. Just want to darken them a bit. The sun just bleaches them blond. I tried Just for Men, but broke out from the chemicals. Not interested in using gurl makeup or pencils, etc. But, not sure what other options are out there.... A masculine look...nothin fem. Just some definition and framing. Waht say u?

    I dunno. I kind of get what you're saying, but if you're looking for "definition and framing" in your eyebrows you might as well use guurl products. The females are much more advanced about that sort of thing. Just keep them in a drawer where no one will see them if it bothers you.

    Don't rule out using an eyebrow pencil - you can tweeze what you got out and then pencil them in - best part is you draw in the brows to relect your mood! (And, don't worry, it won't look the least bit creepy.)

    Penciled eyebrows are always creepy.

    My point exactly, see how her eyebrows seem to say "I'm slightly surprised that you think I look creepy."

    Penciled brows make you look tough.

    I tint my lashes and brows weekly. It's a vegetable based color, but still uses peroxide to oxidize. I use the 'Intensive' brand. However, I'm not sure you can get lash/brow tint without a license.

    Why don't you have an esthetician do it? They shouldn't charge more than $25 for it.

    Don't discount using an eyebrow pencil in a soft brown color. Just swipe it very lightly over your brow hairs, not touching the skin, and let the color transfer on until you get the color you want.

    When I dye my hair some regular non-crazy colour, I will take the mostly-reacted mixture that's leftover and swipe it evenly across the brows. And then 5 mins later I'll wipe with damp paper towel to rinse without it getting into my eyes.

    It's kind of like going halfway between the natural colour and what my hair will be, and since the mix is nearly finished reacting, it doesn't make any drastic change.
