How to: Make Your Own Lip and Cheek Stain!

Making your own lip and cheek stain is a pretty easy process. It's more on how to apply that can be a hassle. Lip and cheek stains are menat to look natural. What can be more natural than making your own stain our of berries and fruit? Now is the perfect time to make your own stain sense the fruit required are now in season!

Here's what you need:

1. Pick a fruit
This is for if you want a natural, flirty pink look. Raspberries give a perfect, little bright, but not too bright, pink color.

Black Cherries:
This is for a little more of a darker, but a still natural look. Black cherries give a more pinky-red, with almost of a hint of purple.

2. After choosing your fruit, smash it in a small bowl and drain the juice into another bowl, so there is no seeds and only liquid.

3. For Lips: Moisturize your lips 10-20 minutes before applying your stain (for smoother lips, try a lip scrub as well before moisturizing). If you apply the stain too soon after putting on chapstick, the stain won't stay on your lips. After 10-20 minutes, apply one thin layer of the fruit/berry juice for a "base." After it has dried completely, apply more on your lips, rub your lips, and let it dry.

4. For Cheeks: Dot a generous amount of juice on the cheek, but not too much to the point where it's dripping. Spread the juice on the cheek, but not too spread out, just in the small general area (don't rub in yet! You'll be spreading it around later). Let the juice sit for 20-30 seconds (depending how bright you want the color.) After the time is up, the juice should feel a tad bit thicker This will make it easier to rub in..Rub the juice into your cheek in the area you want it, until you have the flush you want. Let dry, and you're good to go!

I hope this was helpful!
