Are my natural eyebrows too light for my face?

So I used to always fill in my eyebrows with a pencil but I don't want to do that anymore. I want a more natural look.

I'm growing up and learning to appreciate myself just as I was born LOL.

Anyway I am kind of freaking out over how light they are naturally since I have very dark brown hair. Do you think I should make them darker or just keep them this way?

It might also just be the shock of going natural after years of a dark pencil?

I still have to fill them in because I am growing them out. But I use very light color and very little of it, just so I don't look like an alien LOL.

Anyway, I appreciate the help!

I think you look great! Subtle brows but definitely visible.

Are you putting on eyeliner on your bottom? I feel that maybe the eyeliner is making your eyebrows seem lighter. Maybe switch to a brown mascara and brown eyeliner?

I've seen you in person with the strong brows, so this is a change for me too...but I don't think it looks bad at all. Just different, and I know that when I don't do my brows, I kind of shock myself too.

Love the look! Very soft and feminine. It suits you.

When I look at the thumbnails, I can see that you indeed have eyebrows. So, they're not too light if you can see them in miniature/from a distance.

They look like they have a grey coating though, in the last photo, like you've put lots of translucent or face powder on. If that's the case, maybe go easy over the brows?

You could also use a little clear mascara to tidy them which makes them look darker without loading them with black pencil.

No eyeliner just black mascara. I wondered too if I should switch to brown mascara.

And as I said in the post I still have to fill them in a tiny bit with a light color because they are still growing. I overplucked and it will probably take a few months to get them to normal.

If I'm wearing make-up, my brows are filled in 99% of the time...and they're just as dark as my hair. I just think that it looks incomplete without having my brows done, so yeah, my opinion would be to fill them in. I've never used a pencil though, only powder, and it doesn't look super harsh.

I kind of want to say that of course they aren't too light for your face, because they are your eyebrows and it is your face and therefore of course they go together! They are currently darker than mine (and admittedly I am a dark blonde) and I don't fill mine in at all, in fact I always think I look strange in stage makeup when I have filled them in.

I also really like that black top :)

At least I really like them. I can't wait for them to fully grow out. :)

You have gorgeous big eyes and the lighter eyebrows let the attention go straight to your eyes instead of fighting for attention with darker brows!

Your brows suit you well!

I personally would probably fill them in (or, since I'm lazy, dye them) but that's only because of my own weird preferences. If I saw you in the mall or on the street, I definitely wouldn't notice or think they looked weird or anything though.

I like to use a swipe of chapstick or clear lip gloss to give brows a wet look which makes them look darker and also the waxiness of the chapstick sort of flattens the hairs closer to the skin which also makes them look darker too.

If you're having to put in the work and fill them in anyway I would make them a bit darker--as long as they're still growing in, at least.

I think for a fully polished make up look you would definitely want to fill them in.
