Hey anti-emily,

I keep my brows large and in charge, but I have seen stencils in beauty supply stores for eyebrows.  Most of them are a bit thicker, and not as arched as I am pretty sure I think you want.

That being said, I think a piece of card stock or plastic from a milk jug cut in the shape of the eyebrow you'd like to have would be easy (and nearly free).  Plus, with making your own, you could experiment a lot and come up with the right way to do it.

Before you shave though, get some of that putty stuff for your face.  Drag queens and theater types would know where to find it (costume stores are a good place to start).  You smooth it over your eyebrows, apply foundation over it to match your skin, and draw the suckers on.  When you get the look you like, take some photos, and keep them for reference for when you make THE BIG SHAVE.  Then, if you decide the look isn't really for you, you're only out the money you spent on putty and liquid eyeliner and don't have to wait for your brows to grow back.

Lol, so my hand isn't steady enough for the liquid liner the whole way, so I did cheat cat eyes. I just used the liquid lined on the edge of the eye, and on the acutal eyelid, I did a regular liner. It gave me a smokey cat eye look, that everyone complimented me on, so I'm content.

I want to thank y'all.  I followed links from kinks I got off this thread and eventually found the style I've been looking for.



This is a wig on e-bay, but more importantly, it shows all views.  I printed it off and went to the local Beauty Shop for a cut and perm yesterday.
I had grown out my hair for the last 4 years and cut it off for Locks of Love last May.  It has grown out some, but was in that ugly, do nothing stage.

Tongue

3 hours later I had this.

Grin

But with the perm drying my hair, she couldn't get the waves to fall quite right.  I knew it would be better after a good conditioning though.  This morning I washed it, conditioned the hell out of it, and styled it with bobby pins - no setting gel.  I think it did all right.  It's held its shape all day.  It will be even better when I pick up some rollers and sleep on them.

Cheesy

Thank you all for the inspiration.

LOL!  It took less than 5 minutes to comb in the waves and fix with bobby pins.  It took me longer to braid that mop I had before.  With 3 boys under 7, I'm the queen of wash-n-go.
Now make-up...that would take time.  That's why my face is almost always naked.
