Beauty: Homemade Lip Stain

Confession: I’m obsessed with make up and beauty treatments – but I’m also super cheep. When I have the time and money to really spend I pick up the few products that I know I love and that work for me; experimenting only comes once in awhile.

Lip stains have been gaining popularity in the make up world and I’ve boughten several, but neither were easy to put on and didn’t stay long. For something that is called a “stain” it sure is hard to make it stick.

The “it” place on the web for anything beautification is The Beauty Department, and they have a very cool idea I can’t wait to try and had to share. They created a homemade lip stain out of natural ingredients so it is safe for your skin and should actually STAIN your lips.

INGREDIENTS: 3 Blackberries (for their bright berry color), 1 Raspberry (for its feminine pink color), 3 Pomegranate Seeds (for their vibrant red color), 1/2 teaspoon edible oil (I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil), a small Bowl + Spoon (or mortar + pestle if you have them), Fork or Sifter to drain, small 5-gram Pot/Jar with screw top from any craft store

STEP 1: Mash the blackberries and raspberry in the bowl thoroughly with the back of your spoon.

STEP 2: Add the pomegranate juice into the mixture by individually squeezing them between your thumb and index fingers over the bowl.

STEP 3: Pour the olive oil into the bowl and stir everything together with your spoon.

STEP 4: Finish by draining the liquid from the mixture into your small portable jar.
