I’m very excited about this post because it’s about… Lipsticks!
Today I decded to show you how to do homemade lipsticks. You must know that conventional lipstick can be a source of harmful chemicals and these chemicals can be easily absorbed. These homemade lipstick let you create a personalized lipstick color that is chemical free and inexpensive to make.
These are the ingredients that you’re going to need:
1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles
1 teaspoon Shea butter or Cocoa Butter
1 teaspoon coconut oil
This base recipe will create a smooth, clear lipstick that is very moisturizing and protective. Now, if you want, you can add some color to your lipstick.
Melt all the ingredients in a glass jar without a lid in a small pot of simmering (not boiling) water. When melted, remove from heat and add any optional ingredients like color or scent.
These are some things that you can add:
Matte texture: Add some bentonite clay. You must add some color, this way your lips won’t look white.
Red: Add some natural red food colorant.
Tan/Brown: Cocoa powder or cinnamon.
Scented: A drop of essential oil of choice.
