2nd  thread i know i should have asked 2 questions at once

should i put some Colour into my eyebrows ?

they are currently white  , would you work with someone
with white eyebrows ? apparently it can be very off putting

hair is also white blonde atm so contemplating softening
the look a bit .

what colour is best for that shade of hair ? brow wise ?

While I'm certainly no expert on this matter, I suggest trying lemon chiffon or a cream color to soften it.

Honestly whether or not other people like your eye brow colour, (I think it's kinda cool,but wouldn't be bad if they were a little darker) I don't think that anyone's NOT going to hire you over it. Eyebrows can very easily be changed with makeup for a shoot, and photographers and makeup artists know that.

I'd leave them as they are because you can always apply temporary brow powder, (or mascara) to them as needed, if wanted.

take a photo..

throw it up in photoshop..

cut out the brows..

try them different shades on your photo..

its as easy as drag and drop..

see what looks best to you....

then you can decide if you want to dye your brows.. http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/142/d006ac7e2fb94fd49cbecfe56d278bc7/l.gifhttp://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/141/83794924d19943afa2a365622d1d9fe1/l.gifhttp://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/43/3c652048ad4144b2b346d2bbb5870272/l.gif

I love the no-brow look personally, though I can't pull it off myself.

I'd say rock the nobrow smile. sure, there will always be haters, but that's the case for everyone with every look!

your brows are freakin' sweet i wish i could pull that off! otherwise, they are REALLY EASY to change with makeup, so i wouldn't worry about it. maybe have some pics in your port of you with your brows darkened?

Looked at your images... the white eyebrows do nothing for your face or for versatility as a model.

If brows are the frame for the eyes your wandering around with only the pictures stapled to the wall... It's not the best way to display your art ( eyes)

+1  brows indeed frame the eyes... thus are extremely important... for blond brows I use an antique gold eyeliner product and blend with a brow brush to suit the narrative...

My biggest issue are talent who arrive on set with poorly groomed/shaped brows... I don't have time as key make-up artist to be grooming brows... besides when tweezed most talent's skin will redden for several hours... and it slowly transitions back so concealing isn't effective... please maintain i.e. groom/shape your brows (and nails while you're at it) BEFORE arriving on set... sound like a plan? 

Would highly recommend threading in as it has a much higher precious and you are looking at typically twenty dollars... which is a tax deductible expense (from your modeling earnings)...  avoid waxing, the least precise way to shape brows... in my humble estimation...

The best thing about light hair is you can always go darker. Pick up some eyebrow powder/pencils and get good at shading them in. If someone wants darker eyebrows, BAM, darker eyebrows, and you can wash it all off when youre done without having made any permanent decisions

Youre talking to a newbie model in a different country. Please be careful of probably false info.

Leave them white! In fact I would consider some facial makeup to make them stand out even more.

You can always darken them when you want but other models can't get your look so stay unique.

A good model has something unique to offer. Find an agency, and they will find you the right work. Don't change yourself love, your uniqueness is what will make you stand out!

I have dark brown eyebrows and still add more color when I go to a shoot. Perhaps ask your photographer what s/he is looking for? Some will have preferances--like body hair and the like--some won't.

For the us. Her eyebrow threading would not be tax deductible. IF she were even in the us

What did you do with your whole portfolio?! What made you decide to change to white blonde and do your eyebrows as well!?!

Your eyebrows were one of your most saleable traits and it's a massive shame that you apparently went crazy on them smile

I love your brows! Do not color them. If darker brows are needed for the photo shoot, it's an easy fix with the makeup. Your look is very unique so keep it that way!

Keep the white, keep them neat, keep them clean, but definitely show some looks with different eyebrows! My natural eyebrows are non-existant (essentially) but I have photos with softer darker brows in as well as near black ones that match my locks. Also purple, but nevermind them! Before I was asked what I looked like with my eyebrows drawn in etc. Now I can show them done by myself and numerous MUAs smile
