answer 1
They are big, but they still work. I have a very small face and my brows are not naturally arched, and they kinda slope downward. When I first tried these I thought, "these are WAY too big," but they really work well after you mess around with them. The key is to follow the directions!!!! Don't use the stencil you assume will work best, use the one that the majority of your brow FITS INTO. I thought the petite arch would be perfect for me, but shockingly the medium arch works perfectly. I do NOT have medium-sized brows, but the soft slope of that stencil works best. Also, don't feel like you have to fill in the whole stencil space once it's against your skin. Just use it for a general guideline particularly for the upper line of your brow, and where it should start.

Return them! I had the same problem. I used the high arch stencil because I was in a dance competition and needed more "theatrical" make-up and it worked great, but for everyday use they don't work for me.

I use the Petite arch and I have small facial features. When looking at the stencil it appears really large but you only fill in a small amount. Take a trip to your local Sephora and they will help you find the one that is right for your face shape and size.

I just pushed the stencil back so it lined up with the inside of my eyebrow and filled in the first half. Then I moved the stencil so that the second half ended at the outside of my eyebrow and filled that part in leaving a small space in the middle of my eyebrow that I filled in freehand.

Question
Is there a way that I can still use these stencils to tweeze even though they are all too big for my brows and face shape?
I desperately need to improve and add just the right shape and arch to my brows so I got the Brow Kit that included these stencils, but even after letting them grow for months none of the stencils fit my brows or face shape they way they're supposed to. Can someone please tell me if there is a way that I can still use these stencils as a guide for tweezing even though none of them really fit properly? I often have this problem with brow stencils due to my petite facial features.

Use the darkest powder to see where the eyebrows need to grow in and then remove the senstil to tweeze the rest. This will give you a guide to start shaping, they didn't fit mine either but it took time to grow in and get as close as I could to the shape and fit since mine don't grow much in certain places :)

I have a narrow oval face shape, and couldn't really find one that fit perfectly... so I just used the medium arch and fit it as best as I could. Next, I filled in the area of the stencil with a white powder (so I could tell what needed to be tweezed out). My eyebrows definately weren't as long or as wide, but ir worked out and I'm loving the shape of my eyebrows now! Good luck!

I would suggest trying to line up either the top or bottom to what you are looking for. I've been growing mine in as week and that's how I get them to shape correctly. I just lightly pencil in the areas that are still thin. If you over pencil or powder it will look fake. What also makes filled in eyebrows look fake is the color your using. I have dark brown hair but I use a blond pencil. Looks much more natural, so don't be surprised if the color you use turns out to be something really light.

Yes, you can. If you have small facial features then use the petite arch. After tracing the arch, tweeze the hair that remains under the arch.

if it is too big, use the petite one.
even that one wasn't perfect for me.
but i put the first part on my brow, then stenciled that(up to the line)
then moved it and did the other half.
also you can just move it so that both sides fit at the same time, and hold it or tape it
and the good thing is that they are movable plastic , so its not stiff.

Not that I could find. I' recommend that you use a light colored eye shadow or cream base over the area that you want clear and pluck the brow hairs that get the shadow on them once you're sure.

I like, the Brow-Duo from Anastasia (it's a small compact 2-color kit) but it is PERFECT for blending.
As for a pencil? You can either buy a good eyebrow pencil and brush here or a generic eyebrow pencil and brush from the local drugstore (which isn't a bad thing for people on a budget).

As one who hates to tweeze (it takes 3 days for the swelling to go away) I use a depilatory. Epilstop comes with a small wand version for facial hair. After stenciling in my wanted eyebrow, I carefully apply the depilatory, wait and remove unwanted hair. I know it seems gross, but I can't pluck. : (

I would think, you use the stencil and use shadow or pencil to draw your line to achieve the "ideal" brow you want.
After this, you don't need to hold the stencil because once your "perfect eyebrows are drawn/shadowed, you can wax and tweeze the unwanted hair around it.
Good luck :)

You color in the stencil, remove it, and pluck around what you colored. It says to use brow powder, but I like using a black or brightly colored eyeliner so that I can really see where I drew.

You can remove the excess hair with an eyebrow tweezer. If you don't have one, you can use a concealer to cover up the remaining hairs and then blend so that the hair cannot be seen.

I use the Anastasia classic stencils to make a perfect arch. To help guide the stencil I will make three dots with eyeliner, one lined up against my nose, the second pivoted against it to make a 45 degree angle, and the last at the end of my nose lining up right under my eye that should make the entire length. I will line up the stencil and heavily fill it in with dark eye shadow remove the stencil and tweeze the non colored part. After washing off all the color you should be left with beautiful eyebrows.

Well the stencils have markings that show you where each angle should line up. Play around with stenciling every brow arch design and use a pencil or shadow to see how you like it... if you don't like the 1st arch, move on to the next :)
Go from there before you do any crazy waxing and tweezing because the LAST thing you want is to end up with .. CLOWN BROWS!! :)

Personally, I tried them all and then decided for myself which look was best. However, this is the general recommendation:

Petite Arch- Recommended for small facial features.
Slim High Arch- Recommended for brows in training, growth challenged, thin or sparse brows.
Medium Arch- Recommended for brows with a softer arch that naturally creates less space between the bottom of the brow and the top of the eye.
High Arch- Recommended for brows with a higher arch that naturally creates more space between the bottom of the brow and the top of the eye.
Full Arch - Recommended for the fullest shape and larger facial features.

I wouldn't wax if you are nervous at first. Powder in the shape that's right for you and tweeze out the excess. Once you get used to them you'll see how to wax and what areas to wax. You'll probably want to use the slim arch if you have thin brows.

Good question...I think for me...it is hard to use because probably I do have problem to balance my eyebrows. Therefore, probably this thing will only help to shape your brows but not helping you to have a excellent looking eyebrows. On the other hand, which means by using this product you can have eyebrows good in shape but may not be balanced, so...just my opinion after actually using this product though. I hope it helps.

It does fit most eyebrow shapes but the problem for me was the entire stencil was too long. But that's an easy fix you just shift the stencil until the arch matches with your eyebrow's natural arch and fill it in from there. Don't worry about the extra space because not everybody's eyebrows are naturally as long as the outlines given by the stencils.
