Rejection. It’s a tough pill to swallow. And when you finally suck it up it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

So how do you fix it? You show them what they’re missing… but in a non-desperate, ‘I don’t give a shit’ kind of way.

The aim of the game is to look your best, without looking like you’ve spent a single second in front of the mirror because you’ve been too busy, um, getting busy.

All it takes is a bit of subtle smudged liner around the eyes with a pinky nude lip and you’re in business.

Here’s how you conquer, in two minutes or less.
