Homemade Red Beet Tinted Lip Gloss

Beet juice can be purchased in the grocery aisle of most stores as well as at any juice bar. Homemade lip gloss is quick to make and a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer. You can add slightly more or less beet juice depending on how intense a color you would like. There are all kinds of lip gloss tins and containers available online. Or if you want to be thrifty, save your store-bought lip gloss containers and refill them with your homemade concoction.
