Dry your tears and never let them see you upset with these six beauty must-haves!

Uh-oh. Looks like the Breakup Bug has been at it again and this time it’s struck poor Annalynne McCord! Don’t let a crying fit derail your work day (or your beauty look.) Use these six beauty essentials to repair your face after a particularly tearful episode:

First, remove any running eye makeup with Visine Total Eye Soothing Wipes,  then make sure that you clear up those red eyes with Visine LR Long-Lasting Redness Relief Eye Drops.

Quick fixes are important. I swear by the Benefit Eye Bright Pencil to alleviate dark circles and instantly brighten (use it on the inside rims to mask swelling.)

This is the time where you need waterproof eye makeup. This Clinique Gentle Waterproof Mascara will be a soothing break from your regular mascara and it won’t run during a crying fit.

This is also not the time to skimp on a good eye cream. Decleor (Annalynne is a fan) makes this amazing Harmonie Soothing Eye Contour Gel, which rehydrates and soothes the delicate skin around the eye.

Annalynne loves Carita treatments at LA’s uber chic Le Spa at The Sofitel (so is Jennifer Aniston, another star who’s no stranger to heartbreak.) Check out their Carita Ideal Doceur Cotton Mask, which soothes redness (i.e., blotchy skin) and replenishes sensitive skin.

Take care of yourselves out there, breakup sufferers. Just use these products and no one has to know you’ve been crying. Who knows? You could look so fabulous with these products that you could just catch the eye of someone else!
