Eyebrow Tinting.....scary or good??

So, I have the blondest eyebrows ever......eeeeeespecially in the summer when I get tan and the sun bleaches them out! I have learned to accept this through the years and it really hasn't bothered me, but every time I get my make-up done (which is about 2 times in the past 2 years) or when I go to get them waxed I am pressured to add some color to them. Now, I normally add a little color with a brown pencil, but I am very careful not too add too much. When I got my make-up done for my wedding he added a "little" color.....little, my ass....I had a slight panic attack. My wedding day is not the day to try out a new look! So we started over....and ever since then I am even more cautious of adding any color to my brows. I mean when you have never really had eyebrows adding this dark brown caterpillar looking thing above you eyes you are a little paranoid that that is all anyone sees....because that's all you can see!

So here are some pics....

Here are my brows with lots-o-sun...
My fabulous waxing lady finally talked me into getting them tinted back in January....she was so adamant about it needing to be done she wasn't going to charge me. I was like sheesh lady, fine....but if I don't like it can we take it off she says YES!, in her fabulous Russian accent. Soooo we do it.....the whole time we are doing it I am laying there freaking out thinking I am going to look like this...
But then it was good....really good....I really liked it, very subtle bust just enough! Then she tried to add more....I said you just calm down....one step at a time!! So here is a pic of the first time I did it....sorry so close,  I was sending it to a friend....
So I went back on Friday for more waxing and a little more color......well, Ms. Valentina went a little crazy and it was much darker...now it really doesn't look that much darker in this pic, but I swear it was!!! So, I started freaking out thinking....it was too much...but calming myself because they  will fade so much once I am laying on the beach in a few days (YAY!!)...and telling myself once I do the make-up I will be good....
And they are! They already faded some and I do believe that I am the only crazy person that even notices my eyebrows! Here is a pic from Saturday night.....terrible pic, but you get the point....
Does anybody else tint? Does anybody else have blond eyebrows? Does anyone else have freak out moments?? or is it just me??

I have blonde eyebrows (and eyelashes!) too, but I have the opposite problem - I think I look crazy without color! I have been filling in my brows every morning since I was probably about 13. I just use a medium brown MAC eyeshadow and a brow brush.

I don't think your brows look dark at all, but you're used to them being blonde every day. It definitely takes some getting used to, to see it on yourself.

I think if you want to try it more, maybe try coloring them in yourself for a bit (powder is a lot easier than pencil for me). Then you can do more, less, whatever you feel like.

P.s. It does tend to look weird without any eye makeup too! I never do just my brows. If I'm not wearing makeup, I'm not wearing ANY makeup. So that might help you too if you do it yourself in the morning - when your makeup's off they'll be back to blonde and it won't look funny.

I think your eye brows look really natural. If you wouldn't have said they were tinted, I honestly would have never guessed. I'm sure you'll get used to it. They look great. :)
