Do brow stencils work? Finally even brows?
Well, even without putting anything on my brows, my eyes and my eyebrows simply don´t look the same. So, are brow stencils the solution to make my eyebrows finally look like twins?
My first try was with the Cherry Blooms Mineral Fiber Brows and I used the Cherry Blooms brow stencil in "natural thick". The mineral fiber brows are somewhat messy. No matter, how careful and gentle I try to pull the doe-applicator out the tube- I always get a huge fiber spill everywhere. Applied on top of my brows though, the fibers works pretty well, stick well but don´t create a huge mess on the rest of my face either. Easy to apply too.
However- I did not find that the result was very well defined- the outlines were rather messy. And eventhough I used the exact same stencil on both of my eyebrows, it still did not look perfectly even to me. But see for yourself!
I did not think the result was bad- but still not as exact as I wanted it to be (and the color was off in my opinion too- too much red) and so I wanted to give the stencil another try with my favorite eyebrow product: the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade $18 in blonde (that I bought about 3 years ago and still have not finished! Wow!).
This time I used the "thin" stencil as I don´t like my brows to be too heavy accentuated (I find that makes my face look very harsh).
Immediately I found it was easier to paint the pomade on top of the stencil- much easier than with the fibers. And here is the result (third pic below).
Personally I was pretty happy with the result! It was fast and simple to do and I would say that my brows almost look like twins too!
My verdict is: if you struggle to get even eyebrows, brow stencils might do the trick and help you to achieve 2 almost identical brows. But I definitely would say you need something like the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade as this is easy to "paint" over the stencils! ;-)
Have you ever tried brow stencils?
