The Challenge | Discover the confidence, fun, and wickedness that is red lipstick (or red lipgloss!).  Who are you when it comes to red lips?

  • “I couldn’t!” | Your Challenge:  Wear it in the comfort of your own home.
  • “Only when I’m alone–just to experiment!” | Your Challenge: Go out and paint the town red–with red lips that is!
  • “I do love a particular shade of red…” | Your Challenge: Try a new kind of red.  Blue-based.  Orange-based. Yellow-based.  Matte, creamy, glossy.
  • “I rock red lips all day!” | Your Challenge: Show others the many joys of red lips by submitting or sharing your favorite products, techniques, and experiences.

Are you ready for Temptalia’s Red Lips Challenge? I took it last night, and I hope you will, too.

If you take the challenge, I encourage you to submit the results in picture form to temptalia@gmail.com, as well as all testimonials and written results are happily taken–just include your comment on this post!  If you’re a little wary of your photos being on the blog, think about posting them on the forum, where only members can view your photos.

Would you like to become a makeup artist? Often beauty addicts also have desires to be a makeup artist, but what about you? Do you love makeup on its own, or do you want to make something of your passion? Is there something you want to do career wise that’s makeup-related?
