Eyebrows, Poste-Paste

Wow! It turned out pretty good. The skin color is no better/worse than filling in my eyebrows with powdered makeup, and it matches my hair color better than the brown eyeshadow I usually use anyway, even during the orange stage. I can’t tell for the life of me if it actually stained the hairs red. We’ll just have to see how it matches up with the hair on top of my head after a couple days.

So there you have it! Henna works well on eyebrows, too!

    I’ve been planning to dye my eyebrows but am skeptical about the possible results. how long did you leave the henna on your eyebrows? and what mix do you think would be advisable to use to get a dark brown color? thanks!

    The results weren’t that fabulous, actually. I left the paste on for about the same amount of time I left the henna in my hair — 3-4 hours? And even if you treat your eyebrows like body art henna, leaving it on overnight, steaming it, not getting it wet for 24 hours — it will still be orange for the first half a day, and since it’s on your face, it won’t ever get as dark a brown as you can get on the palm of your hands. It also didn’t seem to dye the hair on my eyebrows at all.
    Anyway, I would suggest trying it at least once, but I’ve been sticking to filling in my brows with eyeshadow and a brush. 🙂

    I’ve revisited the eyebrow experiement (though I have yet to post my results) and I’ve changed my mind: henna on eyebrows is AWESOME, especially if you have hennaed hair. More info soon.
