1. Prepare your ingredients
The first thing that you need to do is to determine the color of the stain which you want to have. Once you have decided the color which you’d like to achieve, then prepare your ingredients, accordingly.
Berries are perfect for this as a number of varieties of them are easily available in the market which can give you colors ranging from blues and purples to pinks and reds. You can achieve the desired color by mixing different berried together or you can even use a single type.
Place 4 berries that you have selected in a small mixing bowl and mash them using a spoon. You can even darken the color which you have created by mixing a few drops of already-prepared coffee into it.
2. Add olive oil to your color
The color which you have prepared will not stay on your lips until you add some olive oil to it. The olive oil is the ‘magic’ ingredient, it provides the required stickiness and shine to the color and at the same time makes your lips look more natural and soft. All you need to to do is to add a spoonful of olive oil with the mashed berries and then mix it well.
3. Adjust the color and texture as per your requirements
Next, you have to give that final touch to the mixture that you have prepared, in other words you have to adjust the texture and color as per your liking. If you want to modify the color, then you can do this by adding some additional berries, olive oil or coffee into the mixture. Creating a lip stain is all about your preference, there is no exact science to define a perfect mixture. Tee berries are the main ingredient which you need to stain your lips and it defines the color which you’ll achieve, the rest of the things are about adding texture to the final product.
4. Apply your lip stain
Finally, apply the lip stain once you are satisfied with the color. You can apply the color using a cotton scab or simply use your fingers. Apply a generous amount of the stain uniformly across your lips. Allow the stain to stay on your lips for a few minutes. When it appears that the color has settled on your lips, then carefully remove the excess amount of the stain. Your lips are now left with naturally enhanced color.
