Today’s post will be focussing on a topic I have long awaited to write about – the use of brow stencils.
Most people that know me know I am very pedantic when it comes to my brows. Every artist has a thing & brows happen to be mine. Hence why I’m always eager to try & test other ways to achieve the ultimate brow – be it more natural or full-on glam.
In my opinion a brow stencil is the perfect weapon for the girl-on-the-go or the Plain Jane just looking for a guideline to “neater” brows.
And that is exactly what I used the stencils for – simply as guidelines. I used Swiitch Beauty’s Eyebrow Stencils (www.swiitchbeauty.com). I struggled finding a size to fit over my brows (the stencils were a bit thinner), but since this was just a guideline it was nothing to stress about.
Now the cool thing about stencils is the fact that you get many shapes and sizes, meaning you can have a different look every day or play around until you find your perfect fit.
Start by placing the stencil over your brows or the area where you want your brows to be. Remember, they are mere guidelines so you can neaten or change it up afterwards.
With a light touch, start to trace the lines of the stencil using your favourite brow pencil (Benefit Cosmetics Goof- Proof Brow Pencil). Focus on these points: where the brow starts, where it arches & where it ends.
Remove the stencil & start filling the brows/empty spaces with light hair-like strokes. Remember to comb through the product as you go.
STEP 4 (OPTIONAL):
As I was going for a more natural, messy look, I didn’t follow this step, but if you are looking for a clean-cut brow, be my guest.
Clean up under the brow & sharpen the ends using your favourite concealer. Concealer is also perfect to hide those random baby hairs.
Viola! As easy as that – now everyone can have perfect brows in half the time. If you are looking for a more detailed brow tutorial, go check out my BOOM-BOOM-BROW post .
