Who doesn’t love a 2-for-1 deal, especially when it comes to makeup?! And if you can get the same quality of each in one product, I’m sold. Well, there are two beauty products that if you aren’t already using in tandem, you really should think about using them as a combo–cheek and lip stains! But you don’t have to spend money buying a packaged deal. It’s actually pretty easy (and cheap!) to make your own.
You only need a few ingredients–some you probably already have lying around the house! To make this mixture, grab some water, shea butter, and an oil such as olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil to get started. Mix one or two teaspoons of each into a small container. Adjust the amounts if you want to make this in bulk.
Then to make the color or stain, there are a few methods and ingredients that you can do. If you have fruits like raspberries, or pomegranates, you can mash them up and squeeze enough of the juice out to add into your mixture. Another way to get color is to pick up some beet root powder and just mix it in. There are tons of options available to help you get the perfect shade.
Make sure everything is blended evenly, and there you have it: You’ve made your own cheek and lip stain!
