The latest TikTok trend is fruit being used as make-up – of course we tried it out | Makeup

Try as you may to withstand TikTookay it is quick changing into our go-to supply for all times-altering data. So far, it’s launched us to the Green Goddess Salad, taught us what an inner bathe is (clue: it includes chia seeds and a glass of water) and served up a whole information to the very best perfumes on the planet.
And now, the latest trend that had us gripped to our telephones (greater than common) is utilizing fruit and greens as make-up merchandise. Yep, you learn that appropriately. It all began (we assume, it’s fairly laborious to seek out the unique supply on TikTookay) when make-up artist @molchanovamua used cherries to tint her cheeks a pure pinky-crimson and created essentially the most attractive look utilizing simply half a cherry.
And, of course – as a result of this is how TikTookay works – everybody else adopted and low and behold there have been movies left, proper and centre with individuals utilizing numerous fruit and greens in lieu of make-up merchandise. We’re speaking banana skins and peppers being used as eyeliner, blackberries doubling up as lipgloss and beetroots and cherries being used as a cheek, lip and finish of nostril tint – no, we’re undecided why we’re blushing the top of our noses both. So of course we needed to give it a go to see a) if it was definitely worth the effort and time, b) if it truly labored however most significantly, c) how sticky it felt on the face. Here’s how our freelance Beauty Director, SJ acquired on… 1. Cherries as a make-up tint
“There’s no denying it felt pretty placing the cherry on my pores and skin, particularly as I maintain mine within the fridge so it was like an on the spot hit of hydration and freshness to my pores and skin. To be trustworthy, I used to be anticipating a bit extra from the cherry. In all of the TikTookay movies I’ve seen, the pigment that goes onto the pores and skin appears to be like actually spectacular – I may hardly see any distinction. Do we not have as ‘highly effective’ cherries right here within the UK? I used to be stunned that it didn’t really feel sticky, I used to be anticipating it to however it was fairly annoying after I acquired residual cherry flesh bits on my pores and skin. Whilst it wasn’t as unsuccessful as I assumed it was going to be, I feel I’ll follow my favorite cream blushers for a cheek tint and to cherries for an ideal summertime snack.” 2. Beetroot as a make-up tint
“From the second I minimize the beetroot up – and it stained my fingers – I knew this was going to punch extra of a pigment punch than the cherries. In reality, I used to be frightened it was going to be an excessive amount of, particularly as I wasn’t positive if the deep crimson-purple tone would go well with my pale pores and skin, however I used to be genuinely stunned at what an ideal job it did. It created a very nice wash of color on my cheeks that seemed fairly dewy and, just like the cherries, felt actually hydrating and soothing on the identical time. It was a bit cumbersome to manoeuvre round my face however possibly I’m anticipating an excessive amount of from a beetroot?! The color lasted all day – so it undoubtedly performs higher than some blushes I’ve tried – and a good friend even commented on how nicely I seemed. However, can I actually be bothered to go to the faff of reducing up a vegetable each time I need to create a beautiful pure flush? In quick: no.” 3. Banana as eyeliner
“I need it to be identified that the try you see me of utilizing a banana pores and skin as an eyeliner was not my first go. The model you’re seeing is the very best one of a really unhealthy bunch (pun meant). No matter how lengthy I singed the top of the banana I couldn’t get it to make any color affect on my eye. And I do not know how individuals on TikTookay have been getting something that resembled a straight line, it was so fiddly and in addition felt fairly scratchy on the pores and skin. Fundamentally, you get to the purpose the place you assume ‘there’s a cause the eyeliner pencil was invented, let’s simply stick to that.’ So that’s what I’m going to do.  Overall verdict of TikTookay trend: utilizing fruit as make-up
I used to be satisfied this was going to be a TikTookay trend that was a whole dud nonetheless I ought to have identified higher as every little thing I’ve tried from TikTookay – up to now – has proved to have some actual-life worth. The actual shock was how good beetroot is in creating a extremely pure flush of color to the pores and skin and the way sensorially pleasing it is too. However, as good as it was, I hate meals waste and I’m not tempted to rub a beetroot over my cheek after which eat it in a salad so it went straight into my compost bin, which nonetheless seems like a waste. Moving ahead I shall follow consuming my fruit and utilizing bonafide make-up merchandise on my face and I’d urge all of you to do the identical.”
