Laura Mercier's Cake Eyeliners are like a magic potion. Tightlining is an eyeliner technique that creates thicker looking lashes by applying product directly on the lashline, not the waterline or the eyelid. Laura Mercier's Tightline Cake Eyeliner and Activator are a waterproof solution, so it stays where you apply it. The combination of the two products takes a little time to get to know the proper ratio -- trial and error. It comes in a variety of colors. The packaging says to apply a bit of the activator on the back of your hand and then add the cake liner to your brush, working it into a paste. Use a flat eyeliner brush to dot or press between the individual lashes. "Wiggle" the brush into your lashline. It lasts all day, and appears to last forever because so little product is required.
