Cosplay How To - Coloring Eyebrows

I picked up this technique a while ago on the forums and I still refer some of my dark-haired friends to it. However, I've never actually done it myself! So I'm putting my money where my mouth is and my prop-making supplies all over my face.

So this technique is especially helpful for people with dark hair that want to go lighter without bleaching their eyebrows. Its also just generally helpful for all hair colors if you want something that is long-lasting and cheap.

So first you'll want to gather your supplies. I used:
  • Washable school glue.
  • Acrylic paint
  • A small paintbrush. ( I chose a stiff, flat brush. I think an angled brush would work even better.)
  • A wig, and other necessary stuff for putting it on my head. (I mean, the whole point is for my eyebrows to match my wig!)
