How to Make Your Own Natural Lip & Cheek Stain (Part 1)

DIY Projects: Beet Lip & Cheek Stain – Technique #1

I’ve been experimenting on my own DIY projects. I did 2 beet lip tint/stain using 2 different techniques. I will show you the first technique and will post the other later.

Things you need:
Measuring spoon
1 Beet peeled and chopped
3 Tbs vegetable glycerin
Double boiler or bowl & pot/pan
Small bowl or jar
Wax paper
Lip container (can be purchased on amazon)
Latex gloves (Optional)



1.  Wash the beet and peel the outside of the beet
Note: I like to cover my cutting board with wax paper because beets can stain.

2. Cut the beet and pour 3 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin

3. Put the cut beets in the double boiler for 25-30mins
Note: I don’t have a double boiler so I used a bowl and put on top of sauce pan that’s filled with water.

4. Pour the beet juice in the strainer and jar/bowl

5. Leave the strainer on top of a clean jar or bowl
Note: This will help get as much beet liquid as possible.

6. Pour it in a few small lip containers and used it for both lips & cheeks tint/stain. It last about 1 month and it can last up to 2 – 3 months in the refrigerator.
