8 Best Eyebrow Stencils to Fill-In and Shape Natural-Looking Brows

If you went overboard with the tweezers, these shaping tools will get you back on track ASAP.

So, you over-tweezed and know it's going to take months—if not longer—to grow in your eyebrows again. Hey, it happens to the best of us! And you've already thought of something that'll help: an eyebrow stencil. It's essentially a template to help you fill in your brows without looking like you've drawn two caterpillars on your face.

An eyebrow stencil is especially "great for people who have poor sight, are known to go tweezer happy, or someone who’s simply scared of over-doing their brows," says eyebrow expert Hibba Kapil, founder of Hibba Beauty.

Most brow stencils come in kits with tons of options. Choose a pack made of flexible plastic so they'll mold to your skin, then follow the instructions for application.

If you want a little more guidance before landing on a stencil, Joey Healy, founder of Joey Healy Eyebrow Studio, says to pick and position one that starts at the front of the brow (hold a pencil straight up from your eye duct; that's where your brow should begin), arches in a way that frames your face (see options here), and ends if you were to hold a pencil about 45 degrees from the other end of your eye. As you're filling in each brow, Healy says to keep your strokes light and intentional. "You want to take your time, and not blindly fill them in because that can end up looking inauthentic," he says.
