Kim Kardashian might not seem like your average hero, but in between spending her time posting selfies and smearing blood on her face, she has taught us probably the most valuable life lesson out there. That's right, she has taught us the art of the ugly cry face.

We're not being mean either - even Kim herself admits she's a master of the art. It's why we love her.

To be fair, Keeping Up With The Kardashians has taught us many things, but even if you don't think that learning how to turn a reality show career into a sock collection is going to get you that far in the real world, we can guarantee that lying on the sofa for a four hour marathon is probably going to have some positive effect on your personal wellbeing.

Even if it is only to teach you how to pull the most amazing, face-scrunching cry face. Hysterical squealing and wiping your snotty face on a sibling's sleeve is definitely also encouraged.

Nothing makes us more emotional than losing a diamond earring (by which we mean plastic studs from Claire's Accessories) , but if you are need of a bit more guidance, check out Kim's top 5 cry faces. They will undoubtedly not only teach you something valuable, but have you snorting into your cuppa too.

Step 2: Do some half-hearted dabbing of your eyes

Nobody noticed you're hiccup-fueled sobs and drama queen style distress? Get a tissue involved. Helps if you begin by wearing three inches of eyeliner as it will run down your face and give the whole effect a spot of panda caught in a thunderstorm style dramatics.

Step 3: Ring up your manager and complain a bit

"I can't find my blue top witht the white stripes. ALL I EVER WANTED WAS THE BLUE TOP WITH THE WHITE STRIPES."

Failing that, calling mums, BFFs or the Talking Clock will do just fine.

Step 4: Take things up an octave and have a squeal.

Who cares if only dogs can understand you? We always knew spaniels felt our pain better than Kanye, anyway.
