Natural Red Lipstick

By  |  0 Comments


When you think of a Valentine’s Day makeup look, it usually includes Red Lipstick. It’s classic, it’s beautiful and the right shade of red lipstick looks good on everyone. But, if you’re going for a more natural, subtle approach to Valentine’s Day makeup a red lip might not be your first choice. 

Why not opt for a lip stain? They are pigmented, long lasting, and come in a variety of different colors to suit your skin tone. Better yet, why not go for a more natural alternative — beets! That’s right, beets! Beets are great for cardiovascular health when eaten, but also make a pretty killer beauty product. 

It’s simple! 

  1. Grab 1 Organic Beet
  2. Cut a slice about 1 centimeter in width
  3. Grab a Q-Tip or your fingers (be careful, beets stain quite a bit!)
  4. Pick up some beet juice with the tool of your choice
  5. Press the beet juice into your lips
  6. Add layers of beet juice until you reach your desired pigmentation


That’s it! Skip the makeup counter and try something natural, different and long lasting. Pair this lip with any neutral eye (or a smokey eye if you’re feeling adventurous). Happy Valentine’s Day!

P.S. Valentine’s Day is about love & the most important person to love is yourself. After all, you’re gorgeous! 😉
