Time. There's no way to make a sunburn go away faster other than letting you body heal itself on it's own schedule.
SImple means. Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Gentle cleansing and anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) help. Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring.

Time. How do you know it is a sun burn blister. Could it possibly be a cold sore? When in doubt, consult with your physician.
Sunburn. If the sunburn is already a day old you just have to be patient and wait for it to fade. Wear a sun that is chemical free-ie zinc or titanium dioxide or both so it will not further irritate your skin.
Time. I hate to say it, but time is needed to help let it heal. In the mean time, try aloe vera gel with vit e which can help it heal faster and also will hydrate and sooth the skin. Hope that helps!
Wear hat. Sunburns take time to heal and only symptomatic care for pain, itching, etc. Can be employed while healing. Wear a hat limit time in the sun and use sunscreen to prevent future sunburning.
Hydrate. Sunburned skin should be hydrated, and lotion is a good way to to keep the skin moisturized. You can also use aloe gel to cool the skin.
Sunburn care. Keep sunburn cool with moist cool/cold compresses. Avoid alcohol containing products. Break off pieces of aloe vera plant & apply sap to skin. Consider non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds to reduce pain. Don’t yank off peeling skin or burst blisters. Seek medical care for severe pain, fever, lack of improvement of symptoms within several days or if a large surface area is blistered.

I was in the sun for a bit too long today, and I have a formal even tomorrow and I was wondering what is a good way to get rid of sun burn overnight?
Not really. Doubt any meds will improve burnt skin that fast. Also note that the skin will burn much easier for the next several months and you should use sun protection.
Can't undo a burn. You probably already know the answer - you cannot get rid of the burn overnight but management should include moisturizing creams for the milder burns and for the more severe burns you may need a prescription cream. Camouflage make-up may be your best option if you have non-blistered sunburns. Prevention is the best form of treatment in these cases.
Wait. Wait. Will disappear over time.
