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.

I had the same issue and just use the petite stencil to where my brows end. They don't reach all the way out to the ends.

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 said the same thing when I purchased them. You can simply follow the natural arch of your eyebrows w/o filling them in as much.

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.
