We’ve heard of some pretty random beauty ingredients over the years — everything from crushed up bugs to certain plants. But food? Well that’s something we usually reserve for kitchens and dinner tables, not our faces.
Unless you’re YouTube sensation Ms Yeah, that is. The China-based foodie, who’s known for showcasing unconventional ways to make and use food, uploaded a video demonstrating how to turn pretty much any food into makeup, and it’s tough not to be impressed. The delicious yet pretty ingredients include everything from seemingly random items like skittles and fruit to some more obvious colourants like coffee and cocoa powder (with marshmallows, Oreos and tomato sauce thrown in for good measure).
By the end of the eight-minute tutorial, the vlogger’s face has completely transformed from a “just got out of bed” look to a prettily made-up mask that seems completely natural.
First she applied “foundation” that was comprised of flour, cocoa powder and water, thickening it with sesame oil and then setting it with some more flour… which she put on by using a marshmallow as an applicator. Because, why not?
For her eyes, the blogger made her brows stand out with some cocoa powder (also used as a bronzer). Instant coffee and flour were then mixed for an eye shadow. But that’s just the “base,” mind you. For actual colour, she mixed skittles in water — a genius solution for some added colour, while also satisfying any potential snack cravings.
No blush or lipstick? Try mixing waxberry juice and tomato sauce together. They both seemed to work wonders on this gal’s cheeks and lips. Seriously, this face is a work of art.
But because doing her entire face in makeup made out of food wasn’t impressive enough, Ms Yeah finished the whole thing off with some custom Oreo earrings. Well heck. And here you thought they were just for dunking in cold milk.
It’s easy to see why Ms Yeah’s channel has had several million views and currently boasts more than 280,000 subscribers. Now please excuse us, we’ve got a pantry to ransack.
