  1. 1

    Obtain an eyebrow stencil kit. These should be available for purchase at your local beauty supply store.

  2. 2

    Place the stencil over the area where your eyebrow is and trace the outline of the stencil shape with a waterproof pencil. This pencil is usually included in the kit.

  3. 3

    Select an eyebrow pencil that is one to two shades lighter than your natural hair colour to fill in the hair.

  4. 4

    Sharpen your pencil to the point where it is able to draw thin lines. Drawing thin lines helps your eyebrows look more natural.

  5. 5

    Fill in your eyebrow shape with short strokes using light pressure. Follow the pattern of the eyebrow stencil.


  1. 1

    Obtain an eyebrow wig and the adhesive to go along with it. Select a wig that is one to two shades lighter than your hair colour. You can get these from a beauty supply store or in the beauty section of a one-stop-shop such as Wal-Mart.

  2. 2

    Position the wig above your eye along the line of your natural eyebrow to help you achieve the right look and trim it to a natural shape if you need to.

  3. 3

    Mark the line of your natural eyebrow with an eyebrow pencil to help guide you when applying the wig.

  4. 4

    Apply a light coat of adhesive to the back of the eyebrow wig with a small eyebrow brush or toothpick and apply it over the pencil markings.
