Beauty // How I shaped my brows using a brow stencil

Shaping eyebrows using eyebrow stencils

I have the wonkiest brows known to man! They are each perfect in their own way but I can never find a way to get them to look the same. They are like feuding sisters! It takes me a long time in the morning to try to get them to be similar – it’s a nightmare. I once had a great eyebrow lady years ago, she always made sure my brows were on point. Unfortunately, I moved out of town and thus ended out affair. Since then I have been struggling to get my brows in shape. They are over plucked in some areas and they have different arch points *sigh*.

This past week I tried out some eyebrow stencils to make my brows into sisters that loved each other. I created a step by step pictorial of how I did it and the final look. The kit that I am using is from Eyelure, I bought it for R50 at Dischem.

Shaping eyebrows using an eyebrow stencil - Eyebrows BeforeHere is the dire state – I hadn’t done my brows in about 4 weeks

Shaping eyebrows using an eyebrow stencil - the different arches availableThe brow stencil kit came with 4 different brow shapes. I chose to use the slim arch because it’s the one that fitted my brows better.

Shaping eyebrows using an eyebrow stencil - Placing the stencil and filling in the browsI used a white eye pencil to draw out the placing of the brow stencil so that it will be on the same level for each brow – ( I saw later that it was a bit off). I was using a dark brown eyebrow powder to fill them in on the stencil.

Using eyebrow stencil to perfect your eyebrows

I placed the stencil on the marked area and filled it in. I used tweezers to get rid of all the hair outside the filled in part. I did also use a razor to get rid of the very fine hairs that the tweezers couldn’t pick up.

I am loving the turn out, hey now! This will drastically reduce the time I spend in the morning trying to get my brows into shape. I am definitely going to use this method in the future.

Which method do you use to shape your brows?

    Wow! You must have a steady hand to have pulled it off so accurately! I threaded my eyebrows once, I always have this nightmare-thought that someone may remove all my eyebrows so I never went back to do it again…

      A steady hand is key to this whole operation. I once slipped with the razor and took out a piece of my brow :(. I also threaded a few times. It’s too painful
