Beauty is about having fun and what's more fun than makeup stencils? Lizzo took another swing at '90s and 2000s glam as she wore neon pink stencil stars between her eyes and on each side of her face. The glam look and the singer's outfit fully leaned into the airbrushed t-shirt era of the early 2000s, but this time the canvas was Lizzo's face.
