2016 is definitely the year of bizarre beauty challenges – and here’s another yummy (literally) one to start off your December.

The #FaceFullofFoodChallenge may be even crazier than the “100Layers of” video. Raychel Newton, better known as @makeup_maven to 14,600 Instagram followers, used only food to create a whole makeup look – foundation and glue falsies included.


In the step-by-step video, Newton shows her Instagram followers how to do a full face of makeup using only food from her kitchen (YEP). The video was uploaded last ween and has since been viewed over 30,000 times. The food stuff she uses includes cocoa powder to fill in her brows, mac and cheese powder for her lids, a beetroot for her lips and even a Snickers bar for contouring.

Watch Newton’s video here for a breakdown of the stuff she uses:

TBH, I totally cringed a few times through out the video. I also thought that the “100Layers of” video was gonna be the most cray makeup challenge to date but alas, the #FaceFullOfFoodChallenge definitely takes the cake for 2016.
