Have you tried one of those eyebrow shaping kits? You can get them in places like boots and superdrug and they often come with sort of little stick on outlines of eyebrows to guide you to a particular shape. They go from thin to thick with high and low arches. I put them on my eyebrows and pluck them into the shape, they are kind of like stencils and then I enhance my brows with powder and a light touch of an eyebrow pencil.
Flowerfairy11Make sure you get exactly the right colour eyebrow pencil. Once I used a dark one and I had two fat black lines above my eyes and I'm blonde. Stupidly I was in such a hurry I didn't notice until I had gone out! lol
Fleur - try a brow powder in very dark brown - this will cling to the hairs you already have and help fill in the sparser areas - it creates a softer look than a pencil. You can also shape them using the powder.
It's not that I have sparse areas, more that my brows are naturally very straight and if I try to superimpose a curved/arched shape over the top, the arch would end up on a bit of skin above where my brow grows. I'll see if I can draw a picture, because I'm aware I'm not making sense!
OK, here we go:
If the brown bit is my eyebrow, and the black is the shape I'd like (this is very rough, mind you), you can see my problem! I don't pluck my eyebrows apart from straggly hairs, so it's not simply a case of letting the top bits grow longer and them plucking them into shape. Is there any way I can create the illusion of an arch with what I've got? Or of making them look halfway presentable and not just like I've used a ruler to draw them on?
