For those kind-hearted souls who are worried about me, you don’t need to be! I’ve wanted to make a look with fake tears for a while, so I thought I’d give it a go.

They see me posin’, they hatin’…. Ah, sorry about the posing but it sort of went with the look, no?  I had some gross eyelashes that needed to be thrown away and I sort of stuck the hairs together so they looked like they were wet with tears. The tears themselves were really easy to do – the Inglot gloss is very wet looking so it was perfect, and dotting in dry pigment and messing up the lower lashine with the gloss/pigment mix helped finish the look.  I think it looks pretty realistic but I wish I’d gone a bit more dramatic with the makeup overall and done much more bronzer and a more defined nude lip.

What do you think – feeling sorry for me? :P


  1. Very pretty! The tears definitely look realistic. Great job!

  2. Very realistic, to a point where I almost shed a tear.
    Don't judge me, I'm just ... empathic :D

  3. Aww I want to hug you then congratulate you on your MU

  4. Looks real to me! Think the posing really tops it off! Love the shadow color you used on the lid!

  5. This is really neat! Very cool idea :)

  6. Aw, you look so sad Robyn. I want to give you a hug!

  7. Looks pretty awesome! Loving your brows too :)

  8. Only you could manage to look nice while fake crying ;-) Love the blues!

  9. Neat idea! The lashes really add to the overall effect.
