Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen was asked:

Question:

“Is plucking the facial hair, not including the eyebrows, forbidden?”

Answer:

“Yes, it is haram. Plucking the facial hair is from the plucking which the Prophet cursed its doer, Peace be upon him and his family and him. It is a major sin, whether it is the eyebrows or on the cheeks or otherwise.” End translation. [Taken from Nur ‘ala Darb no. 562 found here]
