Mehron Sweat and Tears is literally liquid sweat and tears in a bottle when you don’t have time to create the real thing! This versatile liquid glycerin mixture is used by makeup artists to create the look of beads of sweat or tears for a crying effect instantly on performers for film, TV and stage when it’s required for their performance. Once applied it does not evaporate, so it will remain where you put it for as long as you need it. It also has other great uses besides simulating sweat or tears, such as a thinning or mixing agent, moisturizing agent, shine agent or even as a lip gloss over a lip color. It's great to use to simulate medical situations such as serous fluid drainage or oozing from a wound too, and it can be tinted with food color to create other kinds of effects too. Best of all it can be mixed with water to create a facial hydrating spray for a dewey looking finish that also attracts and holds moisture to skin. This is an important staple product that belongs in every makeup artist's kit!
