Looping Teardrops Overlays HELP!

Hey guys, I’m trying to create a scene where the MC starts crying and I want the crying overlays to be looping infinitely on her face. Is it possible to do that? I tried all I could but nothing happens.

Ok, it’s a bit long since I included the beginning just in case. I just wanna know if it’s actually possible to make a looping crying overlay and if I’m doing it wrong.

Grace found a tidy but dirty room, but it's good enough for her anyways.

    NARR
She thinks she has to get used to living in poverty instead of living like a very comfortable and rich girl all the time.

She feels so confused and heart broken.
She can never understand why men are so damn difficult.
She can't even understand her uncle who suddenly wants her out of his rooms.

Grace continues to muse.

(I am a cursed burden after all.)
(Maybe that is the reason why Father and Mum did not want to take care of me anymore.)

    NARR
At this thought, Grace's vision gets blurry due to the tears that are streaming down her cheeks now,
Feeling neglected and her heart feeling heavy.

Since I couldn’t figure out how to make a loop of it, I went with just copy pasting it so it can be repeated and so on. But still, I’d wanna learn how to make a loop.

&overlay FLIPPED INTENSE CRYING shifts to 150 214 in zone 2 in 2 THEN overlay FLIPPED INTENSE CRYING opacity 0 in 1 THEN overlay FLIPPED INTENSE CRYING shifts to 152 230 in zone 2 in 0 THEN overlay FLIPPED INTENSE CRYING opacity 1 loop infinite times
&overlay INTENSE CRYING shifts to 165 215 in zone 2 in 2 THEN overlay INTENSE CRYING opacity 0 in 1 THEN overlay INTENSE CRYING shifts to 166 227 in zone 2 in 0 THEN overlay INTENSE CRYING opacity 1 loop infinite times
