It's make over time! I just feel like changing my look up ladies.

I'm gonna start by lighting my eyebrows along with picking out a new hairstyle in time for the Beyonce concert in a couple of weeks!

I just discovered Sabrena aka Mrs.PakMan's blog/vids, sorry I'm late!
She looks great with this look. So I want to do this for myself. I know how to go about doing it, I use Jolen facial bleach. But my question is what eye brow colour / eyeshadow would I use to shape my brows?! I'm a NW45. I want something that makes me look clean, bright-eyed, and sexy. Not dirty or brow less because it matches my complexion.

Or should I stick to my usual dark brown/ embark combo. Cry

thanks for checking out my blog!!! 
this is a hard question, as it took me YEARS to find *the* eyebrow pencil (BSS--Ruby Kisses retractable pencil in 'brown').  I like pencils better than shadow because i have no brows to begin with and pencils have more staying power.  https://www.hairsisters.com/ver2/ViewDetail.php?product_id=9511&intName1=&intValue1=&intName2=product_style_category&intValue2=153&intName3=&intValue3=&intName4=&intValue4=&sortName=product_sort&sortValue=desc&type=style
 
sorry Cry  i know alot of people use mac espresso for brows but that is too dark if you want to lighten your brows.

I am a nc45 and if I fill them in with eyeshadow its either MAC Saddle or Cork. If I use a pencil, I use Maybelline Define a brow in light brown and medium brown. It takes trial and error to figure out what colors give you the look you want, well, in my case it did. lol

Peroxide wouldn't work? I remember when I was about 14 I used peroxide in my hair daily like a fool and eventually it became this crazy bronze/orange/brown color that people seemed to love.

I'm an NW45 too and i hate dark brows on me. Instead of bleaching you could use a brow set, NickyB recommended girl/boy brow set and i really like it. It makes your eyebrows blond then you can use a color to fill in from there, if your eyebrows are lighter, even if you use the same eyeshadow you've been using to fill in they'll be lighter. Personally I prefer pencils to eyeshadows, I use Medium Brown in Maybelline define a brow and use Darkbrown to outline. I love the combo.
