Liquid Pain and Sorrow is an important staple in any makeup kit because it has so many uses, and too numerous to mention here. It can add that subtle dewey effect with your makeup products, and it's humectant ingredients make it great to use for instantly smoothing down flakey skin.
It can be applied with dropper for the tears effect, or mixed with water in a spray bottle for perspiration. Mix 1 and 1/2 oz Liquid Pain and Sorrow with 1/2 oz distilled water and shake together in a spray bottle. Spray on face and body but avoid spraying it into the eyes. Using water mixed with the glycerin instead of using plain water will give your "sweat" longer stability in wear, and won't evaporate away like plain water can. This product retains a moist look, like real sweat or tears, for an extended period of time.
To create a trailing tear effect simply place a drop just at the inner corner of the eye (not inside the eye). To use for a sweat effect, simply apply with a sponge using a patting or stippling motion to leave the "beads of sweat" look.
TIP: this product is a great to use as both a thinner and texturizer for water-based airbrush foundations, as it helps creates a semi-flat soft dewey finish. It can also be used as a pre-dissolving agent for dry pigments to create a liquid medium, especially for spraying through an airbrush. Or, use it alone as a prep for very dry or peeling skins before a makeup application. Mix it half and half with water in a spray bottle to make a very hydrating and refreshing moisturizing spray. It's fabulous to use straight as a lip gloss too!
