There’s nothing that makes me feel brighter then a pop of bright red lipstick to complete my look. It’s been scientifically found that looking at brighter colours releases dopamine, the feel good hormone that is known to improve mood. It’s time to ditch those nudes and embrace your brighter self.
Go for red lips
Red lips have universally been known as a glamorous Hollywood inspired shade. Red is also known to be a sophisticated, bold shade and will help you to embrace your inner confidence.

Go neon with orange nails
Orange is such a powerful shade and symbolises pretty images such as sunsets or flowers. It’s great for creating energy and so is perfect as a nail varnish because it gives a instant pick me up.
