Here are a few ideas to gently coax you out of your comfort zone, and give you the lift you deserve to overcome those Winter blues.

O.M.G. WOW eye mascara from Bobbi Brown at £23, really is an incredible buy if your budget will stretch that far. Think of it as an investment as big lashes are also in this Spring and you won’t have to repeat buy as with other mascaras for quite a while.
