the five essentials to get you through anything--and we mean anything.

Looking good when you're feeling good? Easy.

But looking good when things start getting crazy--whether you're recovering from an all-night rager, dealing with a missed layover mid-summer vacation, or even landing in the slammer (a la Piper in the new Netflix series Orange is the New Black)--is much more difficult.

But that doesn't mean all hope is lost; we've polled NYLON staffers on their go-to beauty products to get them through even the toughest of circumstances, and came up with our five must-have list. Though they won't protect you from the drama, they will definitely help you face your problems--quite literally.

FOR YOUR SKIN: Kiehl's Skin Rescuer ($40) reduces visible signs of stress and flare-ups. What all-nighter?!

FOR YOUR EYES: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30) won't smudge (no matter how hard you're crying.

FOR YOUR HAIR: Bumble and bumble Hair Powder ($35) is our go-to for when we can't wash our hair--or book that color touch-up appointment.

FOR YOUR LIPS AND CHEEKS: Nars The Multiple in Orgasm ($39) is a makeup lifesaver, since the multi-purpose stick can be used on your lips, cheeks, eyes, and even body.

FOR YOUR FACE: Garnier The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($5.99) help you take it all off--be it sweat-streaked mascara, days of dirt, or whatever bad vibes you're desperate to get rid of.
