Make-up shades to boost your mood

The link between our make-up bags and our mood has never been stronger. It’s how a swipe of lipstick or a swish of eyeshadow can change our mood, even when we’re stuck at home. We asked crystal healer and aura reader Emma Lucy Knowles to share the colours linked to different emotions. Choose the shade that speaks to you and know that your make-up is there to help…
