1. Wear a happy color the next day.
Even if black IS the color that makes you happy. In fact, wear something that makes you feel good, whether it's a little black dress, your favorite pair of denim cut-offs, or an oversized sweatshirt. Sure, you're suffering from a broken heart, but trust us when we say that it's not an excuse to look sloppy. Hence, the whole point of this article!
2. Tea bags are lifesavers.
Here's the scenario: You're all cried out, and you're left with puffy eyebags that no amount of makeup can conceal. Pop in two tea bags inside your refrigerator for 15-20 minutes, and put them on your eyes. Leave 'em there for another 20 minutes. We can't promise that they'll de-puff eyebags 100%, but they will help. Ran out of tea? Use a chilled spoon.
3. Curl your lashes.
All that crying will leave you with smaller, puffier eyes. We know you're not in the mood to do a smoky eye, but do curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara. The point is for your eyes to look bigger and brighter. You want people to stop asking questions about why you look like you're about to cry every five minutes. Waterproof mascara solves that problem.
4. Sunglasses change everything.
If there is absolutely nothing you can do about your eyebags, wear sunglasses. You'll look cool, mysterious, put together, and like a total rockstar! Go you!
5. You can never go wrong with red lipstick.
Two words: Instant distraction. Instead of looking at your maga eyebags, people can just look at your pretty puckers and go "Oooh, what shade is that?" And then you can talk about lipstick brands, and which shade looks best on what skintone. Trust us, nobody will ask you why you look like you're sick and sad if you put on red lipstick.
6. Life will get better if you put on heels.
Never underestimate the power of a good pair of stilettos. Not only will they give you height, they will give you confidence during a time when you feel like you have absolutely nothing left.
