How to make Organic Lip and Cheek Stain
Here is how you can make this DIY lip and cheek stain at home. First you need to buy Organic Beets and juice them in your juicer if you have one. If you don’t have a juicer, just buy Organic Beet Juice Powder and add water to it. Next, boil the beet juice for two to three minutes or until it’s thickened. Thickening the juice just makes it easier to contain and less messy. You can always add water in order to make it less thick.
Now all that you need to do is pour or scoop the Beet juice into a container, and you have a DIY Organic lip and cheek stain made out of Beet juice. In order to apply this very color potent stain, I would suggest using a q-tip for your lips and a cotton ball for your cheeks. If you get too much stain, or it’s not blending into your skin as you had hoped, just use a little water and smooth it out. Beet juice is water soluble, so it’s pretty easy to get off. For lip stain longevity, make sure to apply several layers and blot it down in between.
To preserve your completely organic, natural, and cruelty-free makeup product, just keep it in the fridge fo around two weeks. If you want to carry it around with you, just make sure it’s tossed within ten day’s as there are no preservatives. If you have left over lip and cheek stain, you can always use it as paint for your kids for craft time. Just a thought.
