Sanitise well – You will have to clean the tool every time you use so that no makeup is there on it. Regular cleaning can be a bit of a hassle. Also, sanitising after cleansing is a must.
Replace often – You will have to replace this tool more often as you are using them on the most sensitive area of your body – eyes and if old, this can lead to accumulation of germs.
Expensive for some – Though eye stencils are a very normal tool to apply eyeliner and eyeshadow, replacing them more often can make people feel like they are expensive.
