WHAT YOU'RE TEMPTED TO DO:
Not bother wearing any.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
"It's no time to be a wimp; it's about putting on a brave face," says Nick Barose, Clarins's celebrity makeup artist whose client list includes Mischa Barton, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway. Start with a silicone-based makeup primer to swipe the sleep-ravaged look (new lines and visible pores) from your complexion. Dark circles? Use a small, flat brush to dust a light-reflecting powder under the eyes. As for eyebrows, take your cues from sexy relationship survivors like Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston: Lustrous, shapely, well-groomed brows are flirtatious — and prove that you haven't let yourself go. Subtly highlight dark brows with a golden brow gel and play up fair ones with an auburn pencil. Want sultry bedroom eyes like Kate Moss? Add liner (tear-proof, of course) along the bottom half of the inner rim, from the outer corner to the pupil. Maybe experiment with a jewel-tone liner to change up your look. And why not acquire a just-back-from-the-Bahamas glow by dusting a shimmery bronzer around the perimeter of the face, apples of the cheeks, and bridge of the nose? Wait till the ex sees you like this! Desirable lips, naturally, are essential, although Barose advises: "You want to appear nonchalant, like you just applied your lipstick in the back of a taxi. I'd suggest a sheer, plumping stain to give a hint of color." MC Recommends: Physicians Formula Plump Potion and Prescriptives Here to Stay 24-Hour Longwear Mascara
