By now, it’s old news: If you see The Fault in Our Stars, the “sick flick” adapted from the young adult novel of the same name, you’re probably going to leave the theater sobbing. (Unless, that is, you’re Slate’s own unmoved film critic, Dana Stevens.) So how does one deal with the torrential downpour without sacrificing your preferred makeup routine?
