'[OT]:: Editing eyebrows elegantly'

Below is part of a question from me on the "Stack Exchange" photography site
For reasons explained below I'm trying to edit eyebrows in at least a few
and possibly many photos

The question format on the SE page is much nicer to follow and it has
example photos, but the gist is explained below.

Input from eyebrow editing afficionados welcomed.

I'm seeking suggestions for ways of correcting problems with the appearance
of "eyebrows" in images taken at a 21st birthday celebration. I discovered
retrospectively that the 'birthday girl' (Rachel) had some sort of 'cream
applied selectively to her eyebrows by an Aunt - this was not visible
except in flash illuminated photos. In photos where flash was used the
cream interacted with the flash and produced an off-white layer under the
hairs in some locations only and general overall greying / paling of the
eyebrows.

The aim is to recreate eye-brows that are "normally dark" and natural in
appearance. Some departure from reality is acceptable if it blends in so
well as to be unremarkable to viewers.
I do not know whether the cream reflected the flash, or perhaps fluoresced.
I've been unable to replicate the effect in tests with a range of products.
None of the dozens of other people in the photos had anything except
'normal' facial illumination, so it was very sad that the person who
mattered most was the one affected. She would very much like the effect
eliminated in at least key photos. The effect was not obvious (to me) on
camera LCD views.

I'm finding eyebrow editing challenging and advice on suitable methods is
welcome. Complications are caused by the combination of underlying skin
colour, the general whitening of the overall eyebrow and the desirability
of replicating hairs at various angles and thicknesses. I've web-searched
on appropriate terms but not yet found anything that seems especially
appropriate. Attempts at cloning eyebrows from other photos of Rachel or
other people has not been marvellously successful.

Hi Russel,
you can try to enhance the contrast in that area using an interesting trick in Photoshop.

Just tried and that photo it's a little better. Some white remains.

​Thanks - looks useful - for​

​other applications as well.

Something that can enhance contrast and soften OR sharpen with the same
tool is "quite clever".
