good but block your eyesight
I have no eyebrows of my own and I get good, quick results using these stencils. While holding the stencil firmly on each end, I use a lighter base color (with an eyeshadow brush) tapping off any excess. Brush powder toward the center. This way, I don’t push any of the powder under the stencil. Start in the center brushing ever outward (but each stroke toward the center). Then, without moving the stencil, I change to a thin eyeliner brush, and a darker shade of color to “mottle” in for a more realistic and 3-dimensional illusion. I start in the middle, where a natural eyebrow is darkest and thickest and I paint a line (horizontally) across the middle of the inner part of the brow and then mottle over the line working outward but don’t go all the way to any of the edges (except to make a nice thin outer edge, I use that eyeliner brush, with the darker color still on it, along the upper edge only of the outer corner). Then, before removing the stencil, I lift it only off the outer edge, holding in place on the inner edge and I check the brow. If it needs more mottling, it’s easier to lay in place and continue. If I lift it all the way off, it’s harder to get back into place. Then, if all is well, I wipe the stencil on my robe and turn it over to the other eyebrow. Before coloring, I relax my forehead and compare sides, making any adjustments in placement. All of this saves me time in the long run and after years of doing this every morning, it only takes me a minute or so to complete the routine. Then after both eyebrows are done, if there are any weird spots I just touch them up a little with my fingers and don’t worry too much about them looking absolutely perfect. Noone else is looking at your eyebrows. They’re looking at your eyes. But they do look great and save me a LOT of time!A note to the manufacturer: These stencils are so large, they block your eyesight. Maybe you could make them smaller in the future.
A good help
It can be useful to have a guide when applying eyebrow pencil. This dose have some nice stencil shapes as well as instructions to help you find your brow bone so you can have nice proper eyebrows.
Helped with waxing
I have thick black eyebrows that I wax myself at home and when these stencils arrived they really didn’t do much for me. First of all, I had to cut some of the meaningless plastic off of the bottom of the stencil so I could see my eye. After that they were easier to use, but I can see how it could be challenging for someone to use who’s never used eyebrow stencils before. After that I stenciled my eyebrows with white eyeshadow instead of an eyebrow powder so I could waxed them. It kind of helped, but I could have done the same job without them. When I filled my eyebrows they looked okay but I mainly got these for waxing because I don’t need to really fill my eyebrows as they are thick. Shipping was really fast though.
Ardell Brow Stencils
These worked perfectly. When I use my stencils, it makes my eyebrows each perfect by making them look alike more than I could do it without them.
Not for me but may work for others
I ordered these as a guide to pencil in my eyebrows. I have very sparse eyebrow hairs at the very end of both of my eyebrows due very bad acne i used to have. They are slowly growing back but until they come back completely, I need to pencil my eyebrows in so that I don’t look like Spok. I generally do an alright job of making my eyebrows even, but I thought these stencils might help. I didn’t really even get to try these because they are just too big for my liking. They are also a litle too long for me. I believe that they may work for someone that draws their eyebrows on completely and has no base already or maybe for someone that is using them as a guide to pluck, wax, etc. For me, the size just did not fit my face size.
The stencils are pretty good!! I have medium density eyebrows and this shaper is allowing me to fill in the gaps with high precision. There are four types of design inside each package. I love the classic look. Not too bushy but definitely marked enough to make an impression and give character to your eyes. If your free hand is not that great like mine, this will help you a lot.
