I hope you are all well! Recently, I have been trialling and testing various different brow products and ways to fill in my brows but it has only been until recently that I have found the ‘perfect’ (according to my taste) quick and easy brows using brow stencils that are equal on both sides, which is something I always struggled with and the products that I’ve been loving using. Before I started doing this new found brow routine, on a morning it was always a struggle trying to make both my brows the same and making sure one wasn’t darker than the other (remember eyebrows are sisters, not twins my loves) but I find my brows so much easier to do now which has taken a good 5 minutes out of my daily makeup routine which is fab. I have also switched up the product I use to fill in my brows which has also made my brow look a whole lot better and fuller. This method is great if you have thinner brows or any sparse areas but it should also work if you have thicker brows. Trust me, I’ve tried various brow powders and brow gels but I’ve finally settled with this product and this routine (whoop whoop) I hope you enjoy…
As I mentioned earlier, the way I have been filling in my brows is by using brow stencils. Don’t get me wrong at first I never thought that brow stencils would actually work and never thought of trying them but after picking up the W7 Brow Master Stencil Kit and giving them a go to see if they did work, I am pleased to say I was wrong and I am now converted! They are a much easier way to get equal brows and your perfect brow shape without having to do it free hand. If you can’t get hold of the W7 ones, you can get brow stencils from pretty much anywhere like these Eylure Taking Shape Brow Stencils from Boots or Amazon.
Brow routine using eyebrow stencils:
- First I choose my brow product to use which recently has been the Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Shake Filling Powder in the shade ‘medium brown.’ (review coming soon!)
- I then choose the stencil that suits my brows best and line it up as best I can over my natural brow. The first few times doing this I found it a bit tricky to hold the stencil in place while trying to fill my brow in but once you get the hang of it you’ll be a pro! I find holding a finger at each side of the stencil works best as you can fill in the whole of the stencil easily.
- I then apply the brow powder (or whatever product of your choice) in the middle of my brow and work my way to the end of the brow. I like to fill in the front of my brow last and use the product that’s left on the brush to give my brows are more natural look. Once you have filled in your brow completely and the stencil is covered, lift the stencil off and voila!
- I then flip the stencil round and do the other brow exactly the same way.
- Once both brows are done, sometimes I like to touch up any areas but most of the time this isn’t necessary as the stencil does all the shaping work for ya!
- Finally, I like to take an eyebrow spoolie and brush through my brows to get rid of any excess powder and again give them a more natural look but if you like that bold brow this step is optional!
Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you found this post in some way helpful if you were needing some brow inspo this Summer to up your brow game! Let me know if you end up trying using brow stencils as I’d love to know your thoughts also and what your favourite brow product is at the moment?
Much Love, Amelia xx
