Motivation Monday: Give Me Some Lip Challenge

Each Monday, we're rolling out a new challenge to change the way you think, act, do, or feel. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be motivated to try something different for a week. And if you love it, keep it going!

For some of you, this challenge may be a walk in the park. But for others? It'll actually be crazy intimidating. This week we're challenging you to rock a bold lip each and every day. No neutral pinks. No soft peaches. And no clear glosses. We're talking bold berries, hot reds, and sizzling magenta.

Before you go thinking this is a superficial challenge - it's not. Wearing an attention-grabbing lip does just that: it commands attention. Daring to wear one means being willing to have more looks your way and feeling confident in how gorgeous you really are.

It's also fun to experiment. Use this week to rock a shade (or seven) you normally wouldn't dare to. Visit the beauty counter and let the pros help you pick out colours that will flatter your skintone and are manageable to apply. Check out some tutorials online for tips on how to make that colour last so you aren't constantly running to the bathroom for touch-ups.

You may be surprised at how emboldened you feel when wearing vibrant lipstick. Take that energy and harness it, even if you don't choose to continue doing bright colours after this week's challenge is up. And hey, practice makes perfect - a week of applying lipstick means you'll be better prepared to slick it on when the right occasions come along in your future.
