What is an eyebrow stencil anyway? It's a little strip made of plastic with an eyebrow shape cut out in the middle. You put the strip where you want it and use color powder over the cut out part and voilą! Perfect eyebrows!
What's the advantage of using eyebrow stencils as opposed to eyebrow pencils then?
Well, first of all you don't have to worry about the shape - the stencils are already made to look great on any face. Often you will get two or three different eyebrow stencils in the same package. Secondly, the powder that is generally used with these stencils looks softer and more natural than lines drawn by a pencil.
There are two ways of applying the powder with the help of stencils. Either you remove your entire brow and simply make a new one. This allows you to completely decide the location and angel of your eyebrows. Or you keep the brow and use the stencils only to create the peak and "tail" after the peak.
This is what a typical eyebrow stencil looks like.
