While that supermodel may spend hundreds of dollars having her eyebrows professionally waxed or threaded, many women opt for the convenience of doing it themselves at home. Stencils take the guesswork out of eyebrow grooming. Making your own custom eyebrow stencils ensures your eyebrows are the perfect shape for your face.

Items you will need

  • Eyebrow template
  • Overhead transparency
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Exacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Eyelash glue
  • Tweezers
Step 1

Either download a template online or draw your own on regular printer paper. You will need two, one for the left side and one for the right.

Step 2

Lay the overhead transparency film over your template and outline each template with the ballpoint pen, pressing down firmly.

Step 3

Slowly and carefully cut along the grooves left by the ballpoint pen with the exacto knife. With the scissors, cut out the stencils, leaving about ΒΌ inch around the negative pattern.

Step 4

To tweeze your brows using your new stencils, select the plastic stencils that you poked out from the transparency film. Dot with eyelash glue and let set 30 seconds, until the glue is tacky. Align each one on clean eyebrows and pluck around the stencil.

To fill in your eyebrows with your stencils, choose the rectangular stencils and dot with eyelash glue. Once the glue is tacky, center each one on your brow bone and fill in with an eyebrow pencil or powder.
