beets-soaking-in-waterCharly, our DIY queen has another great tip for us! Using beets as a lip and cheek tint.All you need to do is simmer coarsely diced pieces of a freshly peeled beets in 6oz of water for about 5-10 minutes. Strain the pieces of beet out of the water and then transfer the water into a small jar or a glass vessel. Charly suggests adding a tsp of rubbing alcohol for preservation.We learned from trying out this method for lip and cheek tint it was a little light for our preference. If you prefer a darker red like we do you can simmer the beet pieces longer to reduce the water and it intensify the color.
