Have you ever cut into a beet and stared in awe at the gorgeously intense pink-red colour, wishing you owned some blush or lipstick in that very same hue? Same here! Beets have a beautiful colour to them- and it happens to be flattering on just about every skin tone. Beets can be used to make a natural lip and cheek stain which is easy and looks naturally gorgeous! Read on to know how to make it-


  • Easy and fun to make
  • An amazing alternative to commercial lip and cheek stains
  • No chemicals!
  • Lasts for upto 2 weeks in refrigerator


Things you need:

  • ½ cup beet juice or 3 tablespoons beet powder
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil/vegetable glycerine


  • Add the vegetable glycerine/olive oil and beet powder or juice to your double boiler (or makeshift double boiler, as in my case) and let simmer for at least 20 minutes.
  • After about 20 minutes, remove your pot from heat and funnel the liquid into a glass container. This amount of time creates a subtle-coloured makeup. For a bolder colour, leave your mixture on the stove for longer. Allow the mixture to cool completely before applying to your skin.
  • To apply, dip a cotton ball or cosmetic sponge into the liquid and dab onto your lips or cheeks! You are done- gorgeous pink cheeks and lips!
