2. Take Deep Breaths and Blow Your Nose

When you think you are ready. Take a deep breath and let it go whatever it is that’s making you lose the emotions. Get your good old tissue paper – clear your nose of whatever that’s left from the crying.


3. Cold Compress

Let’s heal those puffy, swollen red eyes.  Get a wash cloth. Soak it in cold water until it is good and freezing and dab it over your face – never rub.


4.  Hydrocortisone?

If you have those eyes treated with cold compress and didn’t work you may try apply 1 percent hydrocortisone cream on lids, and underneath eyes.


5. Visine

A few drops of eye solution may help.


6.Use Q Tips To Smudge Or Fix Mascara

Smeared eyeliner and mascara.  You can use a tissue or q-tips, pat it around the area. Remember to not rub as it will only make things worst with the puffy eyes.

7. Concealer!

Use plenty of concealers on the area that’s red after crying – under the eyes, around the corners of your nostrils.

8. Use the Lighter Eyeshadow’s In Your Palette

Lighter eyeshadow with a bit of shimmer will help brighten the eyes.  Just don’t over do it. Less is more.


9. Use Navy Eyeliner

Don’t use a black eyeliner on your lids. A dark navy blue liner will help soften the look.


10. Make Sure To Use An Eyelash Curler

Curl those lashes and apply two coats of waterproof mascara (just incase those tears start welling up again).
