Brighten your mood with a bold new lipstick. This creation from MAC is no ordinary lippie – it contains sparkling pearl pigments that makes the colour really pop. Nothing cuts through the grey weather like a hot pink pout.

2. The Body Shop’s Spa of the World Japanese Camellia Cream



Dry skin just can’t win when faced with this really, really moisturising cream. The Body Shop are pros at making products that smell amazing, but this has a sophisticated scent, unlike those strawberry bath bombs you used as a tween. Made with camellia oil from Japan, this is ideal for properly chilling you out.

3. BareMinerals brushes

Why does Kylie Jenner’s make-up always look so flawless? It’s all in the tools. Nothing makes you feel like a professional make-up artist more than precision brushes. BareMinerals have some amazing ones on offer, and have a new range coming out next month. Whether you are after chiselled cheekbones that you could grate cheese on, or plump and peachy cheeks, good brushes will let you conquer any and every look.

4. Crème de la Mer’s The Reparative Skin Tint SPF 30

What better way to lighten your mood – and your make-up bag – than this legendary bronzer? Swirl a brush over the colour, tap off any excess and blend over your cheekbones. The result? A healthy glow, inspired by the glistening sands of the desert no less.

3. Neom’s Happiness Scented Candle

Made with eight therapeutic and pure essential oils, this candle could make even the most stressed-out person blissfully relaxed. The scent is not over-powering, which so many candles unfortunately are, and it will genuinely put you in a good mood.
