To choose the best false eyebrows, look for fake eyebrows made of real human hair. To help make the eyebrows look more natural, you'll also want to find eyebrow replacements that have a mostly invisible backing. Eyebrow color is important if you want your eyebrows to look as authentic as possible, which means choosing a shade that matches your hair color. In addition, you want to find fake eyebrows that will stay put on your face. Finally, cost might be an important factor in your decision.

The most authentic-looking eyebrow wigs are natural false eyebrows made from human hair, although some synthetics might be almost as good. Real human hair gives eyebrow replacements a fuller, softer, more healthy look. Often they are woven by hand and more attention is given to creating the most natural eyebrow shape that will complement your face. Some are even designed by professionals who are renowned for being eyebrow masters. Such eyebrows can look completely real and are definitely more natural looking than any attempt to draw or tattoo false eyebrows.

When searching for the best false eyebrows, it's also good to look for ones that have a transparent backing. Some eyebrow wigs might be attached to a net backing, which is used to secure the hairs; however this construction can be visible and obvious, making the eyebrows look fake. Skin colored backing can be better because it might closely match your natural flesh tone, but invisible backing is considered by many artificial eyebrow experts to be the best since it will disappear against any skin color.

Another important consideration is color. Generally you'll want to choose false eyebrows that are either the same color as your hair, or one to two shades lighter or darker. Real eyebrows do not always match your hair color exactly, so choosing a shade that is slightly lighter or darker can provide a more authentic-looking contrast. Always look for natural shapes that will be flexible enough to move with your face. Otherwise you might be creating a false look of answer or surprise. Some users might wish to use makeup in conjunction with their eyebrow wigs to create certain effects.

Applying false eyebrows so they look right and also stick to your face well can involve a series of careful steps. Manufacturers and various websites will provide instructions. Fake eyebrows can be placed directly on skin or they can go over existing eyebrows. Either way, you'll want to make sure you're getting false eyebrows that will stick well to your face all day, possibly even during physical activity. To reuse eyebrows as much as possible, you'll want to look for the kind that come with a separate adhesive, as opposed to a self adhesive.

Whether you're looking for eyebrow wigs for a costume or because of hair and eyebrow loss, there are many options available on the Internet, enabling you to comparison shop. Carefully read descriptions and reviews to find the best false eyebrows for your needs. Some fake eyebrows cost more than others, so if you're planning to spend more money, make sure to get the best quality.

@candyquilt-- False brows for costumes are a lot of fun. But they're very different than regular cosmetic false brows. They're usually kind of exaggerated, at least the ones I've seen were.

I used false eyebrows when I dressed up as a pirate for Halloween. I put on big bushy brows, mustache and beard. I really looked like a pirate, it was fun.

@candyquilt-- Yes, there are false eyebrows. They're not as common as other eyebrow shaping and designing products. But there are quite a few people who use them regularly.

My sister in law has a thyroid disorder which causes hair loss. Her eyebrows became almost nonexistent as a result. She tried different types of products to fill in her brows but finally settled on false eyebrows. They look very natural. I can't even tell that they're not her brows.

I hadn't heard of false eyebrows before. Does anyone here actually use these on a regular basis? I can't imagine using them, unless it was part of a stage costume or something. I think they would bother me and I would end up scratching them and tearing them unwillingly during the day.
