Mood-Boosting Beauty To Beat January Blues

Let’s face it, everyone could do with a little lift and fortification as the month drags on. Especially as yesterday was officially dubbed ‘Blue Monday’, aka the most depressing day of the year. While it may not change our lives, a dash of bright, bold, beautifully colour-popping make-up is the perfect remedy for a dreary day.

If, like many of us, your skin is on the dull side at the moment, a flush of vibrant red courtesy of Cheeky Kiss ‘n’ Tell Tint, £10, across your cheeks will lift skin as well as your mood. Likewise, a slick of Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Red, £18, across lips adds an injection of colour and hydrates at the same time.

You can also feel happier every time you look down at your hands by painting nails an on-trend shade of blue – we love YSL Nail Polish in Bleu Majorelle, £18.50.
