Must I Completely Remove Eyeliner Before Using Latisse?

Some eyeliner always remains after I wash off my mascara. Does every bit of eyeliner need to be removed before I apply Latisse?

Yes to improve effectiveness

It's better to remove all makeup before you apply Latisse. This allows the product to work more effectively.
