If you do bleach, be very careful with it that close to the eye.

For a temporary basis, there are a number of methods, including mascaras, glue and paint, and theatrical hair paints designed specifically for that sort of thing.  These (http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/hbc.htm) are my preferred method; Not a great shot, but here's how it looks (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v503/taleoryn/AX%2009%20Berserk/DSC07199a.jpg) when taking very dark eyebrows grey.  (We weren't going for full white, but it gives pretty darned good coverage.)

eyebrow wax is another alternative - just use the wax, put some foundation and concealer on it to match your skin tone, and then draw on the brows with a pencil. Ben Nye sells a really awesome eyebrow wax that I use all the time =)

Drastic option #12: Shaving your eyebrows off and using a colored pencil.

Hmmm, I dunno if it has any adverse effects on skin or hair, but White Out would work nicely if it doesn't.

just get some white halloween makeup that is sold at stores (it's usually used as a base for clown makeup and stuff) and 

1) make your eyebrows nude with foundation

2) draw on white eyelashes with a brush

or just comb on the white stuff with an eyebrow brush.
