Natural Makeup

Ingredients: 2 Tbsp Olive Oil, 1 Tbsp Honey, 1 Beet

Step 1) Cut your beet in half and trim off the skin. Chop into tiny pieces.

Step 2) Add all your ingredients into a food processor and blend until liquefied. Strain to separate liquids from solids.

Step 3) Pour the liquid stain into a glass jar or other air tight container.

Step 4) Using a lip brush or cotton swap, slide the stain over clean, dry lips.

Step 5) Using the same tool, dab three dots of stain onto the apple of your cheek. Smile to help with placement.

Step 6) Blend onto cheek with circular motion until skin absorbs the stain. Repeat on other cheek.

Step 7) When done, store in refrigerator for up to four weeks or in the freezer for two months.
If you love the idea of a cheek and lip stain but want to experiment with other colors – try different fruits like cherries, strawberries, or raspberries. 

To give the stain a darker hue add a touch of espresso to the mix. You’ll find that there are tons of different ways you can experiment with natural, edible ingredients that will not only make you look healthy and flushed – but will also nourish and moisturize your skin.
