Peel-off stains are the latest innovation to take the beauty world by storm. While they sound confusing, the actual concept is simple: you paint on one of these magical products, let it dry, and then remove it. The formula infuses pigment into the skin beneath! We've seen it used to fill in eyebrows and add a subtle kiss of color to lips. The only problem is that peel-off stain cosmetics are typically found in Korea, which means if you live stateside, you're subject to a hefty shipping fee.
We found that YouTube vlogger RCLBeauty101 was as interested in these formulas as we are . . . and equally frustrated by the shipping dilemma. After some experimentation, she was able to whip up a DIY version that anyone can re-create — even a kid! All that's necessary is mixing two simple household ingredients: nontoxic school glue and food coloring.
The coolest part of this DIY is that it can be used anywhere on the body. Try painting your own take on henna or doodling on long-wear face paint. The possibilities are endless. Plus, the formula is easy to remove with a homemade olive oil and sugar scrub. See for yourself!
