How to Look Better After Crying or When You're Tired

Bad Day Beauty: 5 Easy Fixes to Take You From Gah to Gorge

Been crying for hours? Job stressing you out? Can't sleep? In a better, more perfect world, we'd get the week off to recoup, but ain't ever going to happen. Lucky for you, we've got five top tips to make you look HAWT even if you feel like, well sh*t. Here's to keeping up appearances . . .

If you've been crying or sleepless, meet your new BFF: flesh-toned eyeliner. Waterlining with a shade that's just slightly darker than your natural skin tone will nicely cover up the red that's currently rimming your eyes. Matte shades are more subtle, but shimmery ones have the most brightening power.

If your eyes are bloodshot from exhaustion and/or stress, try a touch of blue mascara. I know it's not the '80s but it makes the whites of your eyes appear brighter, counterbalancing unwanted red tones. See.

Cream blush is another wonderful fix if you're stressed or tired, as it lends a softer, glowier appearance on the skin. For cool undertones try a baby pink shade, and for warm complexions, opt for a peach.

If your under-eyes are purple-red, try a peach- or yellow-toned concealer or corrector. Peach looks more natural, but yellow is more brightening.

If you're tired, chances are your skin is showing it, too, so fake a dewy glow with a refresher spray like any of these. Feel better soon!
