    I feel like the stencils will give a rather artificial shape. What works for one shape face may not work for another.

    I need to get myself some brow styling gel to tame those small stray brow hairs.

    Thank you so much, I will have to get myself the Eylure Brow Stencils, R64.99, since I am only starting out with makeup and have not yet perfected my brow technique.

    I just purchased the Rimmel eyebrow sculpting kit. It’s great and affordable.

    I have a thick fringe which covers my brows, but I still shape them everyday with a bit of powder to make sure they look full.

    Nice to have when you have the time to make the best of your eyes. I still enjoy the colouring pencil to darken my brows.

    I would love to buy the eye stencils. I have mine done by the threading method and sometimes it doesn’t get done properly, so this would help.

    I am old school, in a sense that I still use a pencil to fill and define my eyebrows. When I want to achieve a bold look, I do use MAC’s fluid line in “dip down” with an angled brush, with a trusty spooly at hand.
