Like the one before, the product ensures that your makeup stays on. It is particularly useful as eyeliner – mix loose eye shadow powder with a few drops of Sealing Gel and you have eyeliner that won’t budge for the rest of the day. Same with face powder where a few drop can change powder into a consistency closer to foundation. It also works wonders for as a sealant for lip color.

While the products above work well for most types of makeup, mascara is a trickier issue since it’s kind of sticky already. For that we have this magic wand. It goes on clear, doesn’t clump and makes sure your lashes survive your special day.
