Help...screwed up with a hair dye

Ladies....I did a bad thing. I dyed my eyebrows which I have been doing for years when I dye my hair. This time however the color came out a little too strong....like freakishly orange (eyebrows, not my hair). What can I do????? I have red hair so it's not for say awful, but it is definitely a BAD color. I'm freaking out. Help!!!!

    Yeah, I was going to suggest a pencil or brow powder as well. Maybe if you get a light brown it would help tone them down?

    Is it permanent color or bleach? Or a Demi color?

    Permanent color. Luckily my brows lose color way faster than my hair so hopefully it won't stay this way for long. In the meantine I have a brow powder on them now which helps some. That and bangs. Lol! After a frantic message to my stylist, going to dye a light brown later tonight or tomorrow to tone it down some. Hoping that will alleviate at least some of it and then just leave them be till they fade out on their own. I just can't believe I did it. Never in all my years dying them have I goofed this bad. Lol!

    My blond friends darken and define their eyebrows with hair mascara. The brown (not black) kind. Just a thought.
