We’re back for another installment of Adventures in Homemade Makeup! This recipe is for a lip & cheek stain with beautiful pink and red tones, produced naturally with beets, aka beetroot! It gives the skin a perfectly natural, healthy glow!


Beets: If you’ve ever eaten a beet, you know how careful you need to be not stain anything! Its natural dye is very potent, making it great for this project.

Vegetable glycerine: Usually found in pharmacies / chemist stores in the first aid section, glycerin is a natural ingredient that attracts moisture to the skin. In this recipe it works as the base of our product and as the preservative. If you can’t find glycerine, use vitamin E or coconut oil.

You can carry your lip & cheek stain in your handbag when you go out. It should last two to three weeks if you mostly keep it in the fridge.
