Should I Use Stencils as a Microblading Artist?
The things you keep handy in your microblading kit are essential to your success. To ensure the quality of your work, you not only need to have the right tools, you also need to know when to use them or when not to use them. Should eyebrow stencils be part of your microblading tool kit?
Creating the Perfect Brow Shape
In any microblading class, one of the first things you learn is how to create a brow shape out of your client’s already existing brows. It is also important to consider their overall facial structure as well as their unique facial features. Only when you have mastered these concepts will you know how to use eyebrow stencils the right way.
The Importance of Facial Symmetry
Chances are, majority of the clients you would encounter have faces that are not completely symmetrical. Using stencils alone to give them a set of completely identical brows may not produce your desired results.

Instead, use the stencils to create an outline of the shape you are looking for. This will save you time in drawing outline boxes and make you more efficient. Do not rely on the stencils alone. After all, YOU are the artist and your clients trust that you have the expertise to determine the right eyebrow shape for them.
Stencils are also a great way to practice your skills especially if you are a beginner. Just remember that sticking to the golden ratio measuring system along with using the right stencils will do your clients and your reputation a lot of good.
