The internet is outpacing the woman who uses food as makeup in a new viral trend

TikTok has given us tons of beauty trends over the course of six years, peanut butter manicures, slimming noses, and the trick of pouring foundation into a glass of water for extra hydration.

With so many people making an effort to live in a more sustainable way lately, is it any surprise that the trend of using fruit as makeup has hit TikTok, with over 24 million views on the hashtag? The challenge was reportedly started by Ukrainian user molchanovamua, who originally suggested using the fruit in this way to create a 100% natural look.

The trend has been picked and tried by numerous beauty users and influencers alike, as Gabrille Alexis makeup enthusiasts have tried it with over 19 million views with the title “I’m a Fan”.

In the video, Gabrielle can be seen waving bananas, cherries, and blackberries, and applying them all over her face in place of makeup. She spins a banana stalk for a smoky eye and lip liner look, bites a cherry in half and applies blush and eyeshadow, and uses blackberry as a lip stain.

Results? A subtle natural look, without chemicals or price tag.

Fruit Challenge

This innovative method of getting five a day has delighted online users due to its sustainability, but also the fact that it actually works.

The One Green Planet website that describes itself as “your online guide to making informed, compassionate choices that help people, animals, and the planet,” also advocates incorporating fruit into your beauty regimen.

The site explains that “while many brands advertise themselves as ‘natural’ or even ‘organic’, the truth is that many of these brands are wrong in terms of a truly natural ingredient list and a healthy looking profile,” then there is a response The action of chemicals in beauty products that many people encounter. Watery eyes, rashes, dry skin, sneezing, and oily pimples — they may all be a reaction to a product you’re using and can lead to swelling, hives, and even headaches if you’re extremely sensitive to chemicals.”

They also suggest raspberries or recommend using fresh fruit or thawing a slightly frozen one and rubbing it on your lips as a natural stain, “It also won’t dry out your lips and as a bonus, it adds a nice dose of antioxidants directly to your skin!”

Likewise, fresh or frozen cherries can be a great alternative for blushing,” he says. To make a cherry blush, use a few frozen cherries and let them thaw. Then place the index and middle finger of your dominant hand in the juice, and dip a little enough to get some color. Pat on your cheeks and rub in a circular motion, just enough to add a pop of color. If you get too much, don’t worry; dip in right away, but the scrub will also naturally set on your skin after a few seconds, so you won’t have to worry about rubbing it in later.”

The technique for roasting the banana stem to create eyeliner is arguably no different than a charcoal pencil, and it can easily work with stems of other fruits like apples and pears if bananas aren’t your favourite. But be sure to make sure the heat has calmed down completely before applying it to your face!

The stems of the other fruit – apples and pears – but make sure you put them out roughly first and don’t burn yourself!
