Chocolate Cheeks and Beet Lips: Food for Face

Do you ever wonder what is in your makeup? It is amazing that we will quickly wipe off a smudge of chocolate syrup from our lips but smear dyes and chemicals all over our faces. tumblr_mfh6vcWGpO1qbebtno1_500

Well, I thought I’d try a more natural (…and yummier) approach to makeup today with two simple items: cocoa powder and beets.

1. Beet Lips: Have your lipstain and eat it too

Look at these gorgeous yellow and red beets I bought from the Athens Farmers Market and roasted… NOM!

Beets are hands down my favorite root vegetable and give a killer kiss of color to my lips every time I eat them. Not only will beets stain your smoocher, but they will leave magenta marks on your fingers, cutting board and shirt.

Gorgeous

There are tons of DIY recipes online about how to make your own beet lipstain or lip balm, but I am just too lazy and hungry to waste my precious beets on beauty, so I just eat ’em and let the juice stick to my lips.

Beet-utiful! The olive oil I roasted them in was a lip-conditioning bonus.

2. Cocoa Powder Bronzer: Chocolate cheeks

That moment when you realize you are becoming a brownie.

Ta-da! All bronzed, beet-ed and ready to face the day… Well, actually ready to eat my delicious breakfast of beets and greens over pasta with Feta Cheese. This food is strictly for my belly.IMG_5693

I hope I don’t have a chunk of spinach in my teeth, but I am totally cool with having food on my face. I now leave you with more cute kids with chocolate on their faces 🙂
