We all know that staying indoors all the time can make you super inclined to stay in your PJs, whack your hair up into a messy bun, and go make-up free. Don't get us wrong, there are definitely days where that's exactly what we're doing too! And that can be great and super cathartic, but there's also going to be days where putting on cute or comfortable outfit and throwing on a little make-up might just give your mood the boost it needs or spur you on to do something productive with your day, it's all about the mindset! We're not talking about a full-on make-up routine here, but if you want something just to give you that little bit of glitz and sparkle, we've comprised a list of our Top 8 beauty essentials to give you a little boost at the minute.
