Sometimes a pop of bright lipstick can really help to lift our spirits – as Kristen Bell has just proven with the ultimate red lipstick selfie.

This comes after the Frozen star opened up about struggling with her mental health for a couple of weeks. "I've been struggling the last 2 weeks, for who-knows-why-slash-ALL-the-reasons," she wrote on Instagram. "Today I finally got back on the treadmill, figuratively and literally. And I'm proud. 'Good job, kb.' I said to myself. To anyone who's been feeling the same, you can do it. Just do the next right thing. I love u."

Thankfully, it looks like the actress is slowly getting her mojo back. Complete with statement sunglasses by Australian brand Quay, she captioned the new picture, "Sometimes adding a little lipstick to your sweatsuit and getting in the car even though you're going nowhere is all it takes to feel like a boss again!" We couldn't agree more.
