Hi Jo,

I do have a bit of information for you that I hope will be helpful. First, you might want to have thick eyebrows to begin with. If they're thin, don't worry! I'm sure you could pencil them in. Make sure you get this pencil a natural color and of matching color to your brows. As to whether or not she pencils them, I don't know. But I do love her brows as well, and I can tell you how to pluck, if you want. But keep in mind I'm not a professional! This is only advice. I do know that the brows are quite thick at the base. ( toward the eyes ) As the brow moves outward ( toward the edge of the face ) it begins to thin out, turning into an arch that reaches higher than the base of the brow. ( somewhat of an S shape ).Be sure to get the brow even and in proprtion to your face - Kate's brows are hers and not yours - we all have our own facial structure. Use some gel or clear mascara to push the brow upward to give a more arched effect and the gel will keep a hold on the shape all day. I recommend that you take in a picture of her brows to a professional and ask to do her best. But I've tried this, and she told me that having the exact same brow as Kate's would throw my face out of proportion, so she gave me the shape that works best for my face. And I love it! I think going with what works best with you and your face will make you happiest. But I do hope I gave you some help, and if you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. I also recommend taking a white pencil and coloring in the area of hairs you intend to pluck so you can see the desired result. Remember to pluck only under the brow, sticking with your natural shape. And step back from the mirror so you can see from a distance the shape of your brows. Good luck, and do tell me how things work out! :-)

Why don't you just shave your eyebrows off, and then pencil them in?

I bet that would look so good!
