Apart from pushing levels or asking for "extras"emoticon, what's the best way to make a model cry and run her mascara?

It obviously needs to be 100% safe, what would you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Tearstick, its like vicks vaporub. Just hold it under the eyes and they will start streaming, I have had it done to me, by a pro makeup artist though. So they will probably know the right stuff to get.

All according as to what effect you are after, if its real crying then the tear stick works well, allthough some can find it very irratable, if its just tears you want , then Mehron's sweat and tears will do the job very well emoticon

I can always cry if I think about something that upsets me.

Thanks guys, to clarify I'm more after the run mascara look, rather than the actual tears. Similar to Paul's example and, if you've seen it, the latest GHD advert.

By the sounds of it, tear stick or vics (which irritates the poop out of my eyes) is the way to go.

Cheers.

Only trouble is with tear stick vicks etc the models actual eye will be red and blood shot , if that is the result you want then fine but if not I would suggest fake tears and painted in running mascara. Good luck with the results .

kick them ?xx i and quite alot of other models perform as well so can cry on cue but this can ruin the rest of the face so i think painting it on is the best way xx
