Q:

Do you know you can make lipsticks at home by yourself, check this post?

Hey girls❤️

You know you all can make lipstick on your own, you just need some ingredients. I'll show how can you make one.

Ingredients

  1. 1 teaspoon beeswax
  2. 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  3. 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  4. 4 drops essential oil of your choice.
  • So now let's see about the color for your lips

Reds - 1 teaspoon beetroot powder and 1/4th teaspoon alkanet root powder. ( You can adjust the color of it by adjusting this amount)

Browns/nudes - 1/2 teaspoon of cocoa powder and small pinch of cinnamon or turmeric powder. ( Adjust until you get your required shade)

Matte - add 1/2 teaspoon of bentonite clay to any of the above color options for a matte finish.

  1. How to make it
  • To a boiler, add all ingredients and gently melt. Only add the first set of ingredients, not the color options.
  • Add the color options and play around it until you get your desired shade.
  • Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.
  • Add in the essential oil and stir well.
  • Pour into lip balm tube or lip pot or any other.
  • Allow to cool for atleast 1 hour.

Note - while the mixture is still wet, it will look dark, but will lighten as it hardens.
