Brow stamps are all over Instagram and for very good reason! With so many ways to get incredible brows these days, this one’s a new favorite.
What is a brow stamp?
A brow stamp is exactly what it sounds like! It’s a stamp for your eyebrows and works like any other stamp. It’s a pain-free, no-commitment way to get professional-looking brows that have the shape you’ve been daydreaming about.
Stamp kits usually come with multiple stencils and you can also select the shade you want. This allows you to create your dream brows from the comfort of your home.
Which brow stamp is the best?
There are tons of options out there for brow stamps. The Brow Stamp at The Brow Fixx offers 5 colors to choose from. Your eyebrow powder stamp kit also comes with 6 stencils so that you can choose the brow style you like – straight to rounded and everything in between. You use the stencil as an outline to stamp on flawless brows in moments.
How to apply the brow stamp?
In three simple steps, your brow game will be strong in minutes!
Step 1: Get Your Stencil and Powder Ready
Decide what look you’re going for whether it be straight, rounded, or angled and the color shade. Most eyebrow powder stamp kits will come with several stencil options like the Brow Fixx’s Eyebrow Powder Stamp Kit.
Unscrew the lid to your powder and if you want more product, press the stamp down on the lid.
Step 2: Apply the Stencil and Powder
Hold the stencil flat onto your natural brow with one hand. Use your other hand to lightly press and stamp your brow. You’ll start from the tail of your brow, then slowly work your way to the base of the brow. If you want to darken your brow, press down harder and repeat.
Step 3: Wipe and Repeat
After you’ve done one eyebrow, you’ll wipe the stencil off. Then, flip it over to stamp your other brow repeating step 2.

Who should use a brow stamp?
Anyone can use an eyebrow stamp! If you use our eyebrow powder stamp kit, it’s fool-proof for newbies and experts alike. All you have to be able to do is hold the stencil onto your natural brow while you stamp on the color.
