I am always looking for a fun makeup DIY. Not surprisingly, the lipstick you buy at the store is full of harmful chemicals. Today I will teach you how to make your very own chemical-free, inexpensive lipstick!

Ingredients for the base:lipstick

  • 1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles
  • 1 teaspoon shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

To add color to the base:

  • If you want red lipstick: add 1 drop of natural red food coloring to the base.
  • For brown or tan hues: add 1/4 teaspoon of coca powder and a tiny pinch of cinnamon to get the shade you want

Melt the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in a glass jar without a lid in a small pot of simmering water. When melted, remove from heat and add any optional ingredients like color or scent. Once all ingredients are mixed well but still liquid, use a dropper to pour into the container you are storing it in.  Leave to cool for at least half an hour and then store it in a cool place!

Viola, you are now a lipstick extraordinaire!

XOXO, Chels
