Broken Heart Beauty: Makeup for a Breakup
WHAT YOU'RE TEMPTED TO DO:
Bite 'em down, paint 'em black
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
"Book yourself a really good manicure," advises Deborah Hardwick, founder of BuffSpa at Equinox. And now's not the time to swap Ballet Slippers for Vamp or vice versa. "Nails are also one of the first places to show stress," she adds. Ragged cuticles, chipped polish, and mismatched nail lengths reveal that you've been nervously biting and fidgeting with your fingers. But don't even think about picking up those cuticle nippers. Heal hangnails by dotting New-Skin Liquid Bandage right on top. "Take advantage of your time alone and do pampering treatments at night," suggests Hardwick. Layer rich cuticle cream on your nail beds, and while you're at it, slather your soles with an emollient salve. "It doesn't make up for a boyfriend, but at least by the time you get one, your feet will be nice and smooth."
