I rinse a towel with cold water and put it over my eyes for awhile. I normally end up falling asleep, lol.

Okay, this might sound a little weird but in addition to splashing a little cold water on my eyes, I force myself to smile. I will literally stand in front of the bathroom mirror and fake a big smile. It seems to work for some reason.

chilled cucumbers work well.

i think its cause smiling releases the happy endorphins (sp) and will help to get rid of the puffyness i try and use cold damp cloths or things like that to take away the redness etc.

I've become quite experienced at making it look like u havnt cried!
had a very shitty time with my ex bf when i was in highschool and he was in college lol (i was a jealous 16 year old!)

anyway...

the spoons work in the freezer! and it sounds wierd but if u sit and u smile and what not it makes you look a little happier if you're around people or u have to go out in front of someone quick.

also a cool clothe will reduce the redness in your face and puffiness in your eyes.
give your nose a good blow! lol so you dont sound as sad
sometimes just fresh air will help you calm down
and i think someone else said this but if you have time take a shower it takes your mind of stuff... and yea!

but i find the cool cloth and spoons most effective for redness and puffiness and try to only pat your eyes dry or dab them with a kleenex rather than rubbing them that way your eyes aren't so red!

Dunk head into tub of ice cream.

Like, literally and metaphorically...

Mmmm.... I should take my own advice. BRB!

It has been a while since I had a cry that necessitated it, but I do the same.

I cried a lot in high school... and I had read somewhere, to wet some papertowels with cool water, squeeze most of the excess water out and then place on top of eyes. Always worked like a charm for me.

Sounds like a lot of these ideas are pretty similar

I do this too, except sometimes I'd put on music and then fall asleep haha.

I wash my face and make sure I get lots of water in my eyes to wash out the saltiness, then lots of eyedrops.

Not sure if this would help, but "Visine" eye drops for the eye redness? It would probably soothe the irritation of crying?

yeah, basically anything cold will help reduce the puffiness. i use one of those hot to cold eye masks whenever my eyes are puffy.. just leave it in the freezer!

A damp teabag on each eye works great Something in the tea tightens the skin and makes the puffiness go away.
