DIY Eyebrow Stencils

Want to make creating the perfect eyebrow shape easier? Want to have even eyebrows? Well, look no further! Eyebrow stencils are the best way to get professional eyebrow shaping in your own home, but some of them can be expensive. Or maybe they don't have eyebrow stencils that don't shape your face well?  So why not make your own?

What you'll need

  • Contact paper
  • Binder separator
  • Needle or pin
  • Scissors
  • Permanent marker
  • Pen
  • Eyebrow brush
  • Angled brush
  • Mascara brush
  • Long paintbrush
  • Eye shadow to fill in eyebrows
  • White Eyeliner
  • Tweezers
  • (Not shown) A nail file.
  1. Brush eyebrow hair using an eyebrow brush.
  2. Outline your eyebrow using a long paintbrush or pencil and white eyeliner. Line the end of the paintbrush next to your nostril for the first line, the outside of your pupil for the second line, and the outer corner for the third line. Use this chart as a guide.
  3. Use the lines you created to create an outline of the eyebrow shape you want.
  4. Cover your eyebrow with the contact paper.
  5. Trace over the white eyeliner using a permanent marker.
  6. Remove the contact paper and outline your traced eyebrow so that it is neater.
  7. Using the binder separator, trace the eyebrow shape.
  8. Poke a hole in the separator to create a gap for your scissors. (Optional: Use the pen to make the hole bigger. Just make sure the hole doesn’t go pass the black line).
  9. Cut along the black line. (Optional: For a bolder eyebrow shape, cut outside the black line).
  10. Fill in your eyebrows using the stencil and tweeze what you didn’t fill in. 
Tip: Using a nail file, I filed the inside of the stencil to smooth it out.

Enjoy you're own eyebrow stencils and you're good-looking new eyebrows!
