Getting the perfect lips: looking for stained natural lips? You can try some of the most popular coloring fruits and veggies such as pomegranate, raspberry, blackberry, and most popular, beets. If you have petroleum jelly, transparent lip balm or olive oil, you can use the mashed and smashed veggies with the jelly and use the same as a lip conditioner. Beets are known to have the best staining effect, which can last for hours. Ensure that your teeth are safe from the colors as you may end up staining them if you are not careful.

Another item that you can use to condition your lips is Vitamin E capsules. The kind of conditioning this gives is at par with the best lip balms in the world.

The perfect face that glows: When you need to get the perfect makeup base or need the perfect compact powder, try baby face powder that’s mild and gentle on your skin. Use a makeup puff and dab a little baby powder on your skin. Such powders are known to be designed for soft and glowing skin and can easily replace your expensive face powder when you seek quick solutions.

Also, when you don’t want to use too much blush, use beets mixed with petroleum jelly and dab same on your cheeks. What you need to ensure is the amount of beets you should use. Keep in mind that beets can cause stains that can last for hours, so keep checking the kind of blushed look you need.

Another trick is to mix some eye shadow with baby powder as a quick solution to blusher in the nick of time when you need it most.
