I’ve been dying to try out this DIY for months. I wanted to create an all-natural DIY Lip & Cheek stain that would add a little pink pout to my lips and a flush to my cheeks. And, I wanted to use ingredients that are really nourishing for my skin. So, I’m happy to report that I’ve come up with a formula that works!
The great news is that you only need 4 ingredients. I am using beet juice. I’ve seen that a similar DIY’s for this project (had a peek on Pinterest), use Beet Powder. But this didn’t work for me because it’s grainy. Beet powder would work for a lip scrub, but not a tint or stain.
I also tried a ton of different combos, but this recipe is the only one (after hours of experimenting), that really worked. Keep in mind if you are vegan, that I am using beeswax. I’d love to find an alternative, so if you have any ideas…I’m open!

You will need
Storage: You can take your tint with you. But when not using, I recommend storing in a cool, dark spot.
Shelf-life: Approx 3 months. But remember, as with anything that doesn’t contain a preservative, you are better off dipping a swab in the pot to apply because a finger dipping in and out of any jar might contaminate in bacteria. Don’t be paranoid though! This is a general tip for all natural skin care creams, lotions and potions that come in jars.
