I suppose I haven’t thought about color as much as hanging on to all the brows that I have😳

Still highlight/color my hair ...not sure I will ever go grey unless I am in a nursing home with no options in any part of my life (ugh...the thought is so scary that it could happen and not that far off...)anyway...I digress...I find brow mascara covers the grey hairs best for me.

How timely! My 78 year old mother asked me to take her shopping for eyebrow pencil today. I feel up to the task now. Thanks, Val!

I lived for nearly black lipstick - and that dreaded liner - in the 90s. Could not pay me to revert to it from my fresh, dewy lip balm look.

I suspect my naturally brunette brows will take a while to go all grey, which is fine with me. However, I think seeing the contrast between them and my now silvery grey hair, peppered with dark strands/sections, confuses a few folks about my natural hair color. Keep em guessing! 😉

The statement black lipstick makes is about death, whether dead or undead.

Dark vampy purple/wine lipstick shades are so fun to wear! Actual black doesn’t look so great on me. As a pale redhead with strawberry blonde lashes and brows I go for ashy shades that don’t pull too orange. My hair is starting to slowly fade to a lovely apricot and so far I don’t mind.

Val (others please chime in too)-Have grey eyebrows now and also very light eyelashes...am blonde/blue eyes...without something riming my lower lashes espec. behind my glasses...my eyes disappear. I use lash primer and mascara but need some color/type of liner for the lower lid but also don't want a harsh look...any recomm. on colors/products? Thank you

Here's another question for you: What can be done about micro-blading that remains two years past the "should be gone" date?

i'd say the Diors and Oprah mag. ie the world at large accessorise YOU in a complimentary way not the other way round

Black lipstick -- UGH! I will never understand the desire for this. Same with black nail polish. Also ugh.

But to each his own!

Thank you so much for mentioning the interview with Esther. It was very helpful for me.

I just plucked another grey hair from my eyebrow! When I first saw that first grey in an eyebrow a few years back, I confess I somewhat flipped out; however, I've been going grey since my late teens!

I have never thought about eyebrows changing colour too and now it’s all I can think about😳
