Most everyone knows the age-old beauty commandment: “Your eyebrows should look like sisters, not twins.” I first heard it when Michelle Phan, OG beauty guru, made her first eyebrow tutorial and I’ve been following this golden rule ever since. While it makes sense—nobody wants uniform brows that look like they were worked on for hours—it’s not always easy to achieve.

That’s where eyebrows stencils come in to speed everything up. These little durable sheets of plastic make it easy to shape and groom your brows by providing an easy-to-follow outline. The key is finding a form that’s closest to your natural shape, which should be easy, as many of these kits offer several outlines to choose from. From there, you simply fill in your brows with your preferred brow product.
