Now that you’re snot-free, chances are you still look a bit rougher than usual. How do you get back to your normal, glowy self–at least on the outside?
Dash to a restroom or secluded area with a mirror and check out what you’re dealing with. If your eye makeup runs, dab at it with a dry tissue or towel at first to avoid removing any other makeup you may have on (under eye concealer, etc.). We all know major Panda eye can be a pain in the ass. If it’s stubborn, use soap and water. Have no suds handy? Hand lotion will work in a pinch, too.
If your eyes are red, drops are your best bet. If you don’t have any on you, you can try putting a cool, wet paper towel over them for a few seconds.
Cool water will also help if your face is flushed. Splash yourself a little bit and pat dry–don’t rub, though, or you may increase your redness. If it’s really bad, you can apply some extra coverup or powder, but please avoid looking like a clown. That’s even scarier than looking like you’ve been crying for hours!
A good trick to divert everyone’s eyes away from your own? A quick swipe of bright or sparkly lip gloss will draw attention to your mouth, not your bloodshot baby blues, and make you feel cute and sassy–which will help you feel better (and look great with those sunglasses)!
Now smile–it will release endorphins that trick you into feeling genuinely happy!
