Three DIY Makeup Recipes Using Beets

3. Lip and Cheek Stain

Greening your makeup bag is a lot easier when you can make, or find, products with a dual purpose. Over on 1 800 Recycling, there is a fantastic article and recipe sharing how to make a cheek and lip stain.¬†This would be a great DIY product for when you’re looking to get out of the door quick!


Do you make any makeup yourself? What are some of your favorite recipes, tips, or tricks? I would love to see some of these recipes made with strawberries, or even blueberries, for different shade variations! Feel free to leave any comments, questions, or recipes.
