Confession: I’m pretty bad at makeup. I can work wonders with a mascara wand, but besides that and kooky Halloween face painting, the rest of it confuses me, which makes discovering Nikole Diane’s stencils even more exciting. Now, these aren’t your conventional stencils, but everyday makeup can get kind of boring, so why not wear hearts on your eyelids and tribal triangles? Each stencil is hand cut from thin, malleable plastic and forms to your eye to recreate the pretty shapes. If only someone would do this for a cat eye, and we’d be set — the tape method is a bit scary! Check out the rest of these quirky makeup stencils below, and visit Ms. Diane’s shop for more.
