Okay, so you've moved on. However, there is nothing more awkward than running into an "ex-flame" when you're looking "plain-Jane". Assuming you're able to spot him first, touch up your look with the following essentials and you won't have to run the opposite way. Face him head-on and he'll be eating his heart out!
Hair: If you're having a bad hair day, the best thing to do is clip all of your hair up into a sexy bun or ponytail. Cloth headbands work best for shorter hair.
Face: To freshen up your entire face, use a pressed powder foundation compact equipped with a convenient mirror and sponge applicator. This will blot away shine and cover any imperfections.
Brows: Polish your look with groomed eyebrows. Use a brow gel, preferably Benefit's "Speed Brow" or Paula Dorf's "Perfect Brow Gel" to instantly brush and hold your eyebrows in place.
Cheeks: Add a little glow back to your skin with a cream blush or bronzer to accentuate your cheekbones. Creams can easily be applied and blended with fingertips.
Lips: Apply a tinted lip balm, like Clinique's "Chubby Stick", in a color that closely matches your natural lip color. Don't use a lipstick! Remember this is an "impromptu" meeting". You don't want it to seem obvious that you're trying to impress him. After all, he's your "ex".
Fragrance: Lastly, you'll need a purse spray or rollerball. If he tries to go in for a friendly hug, he'll get a whiff of your signature perfume scent.
