The eyeliner that you will see in most makeup artist's kit is MAC's Blacktrack gel liner. I thought it was the best product on the market to produce the blackest, most smudge-proof liner for your eyes. That is until Ben Nye's Cake Eye Liner came along. I actually prefer the look of this liner on my clients. You use this product by "activating" it with water. Personally, I use it with MAC's Fix+ spray. The cake will temporarily take on a wet texture and you simply dip an eyeliner brush into it and apply to your lash line as you would with a gel liner. Sometimes black is too harsh, so I use the dark brown liner on my brides to compliment the "natural" look that most people desire in the Pacific Northwest. This would be great addition to anyone's makeup kit, including professional makeup artists. Ben Nye's Cake Eye Liner is awesome- sauce and it gets Vanita's Seal of Approval.
