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

Are you ready for you mind to be blown?! Mine totally is. I saw a tutorial on how to make lipstick out of crayons and I knew I just had to share it with all of you! Now you can make lipstick in every color imaginable with just TWO ingredients! Here’s how:

All you need is coconut oil, Crayola crayons, and some containers to put your homemade lipstick in. You can clean out old lipstickmakeup containers and use ‘em! Choose the color that you would like to use and then remove the wrappers from the crayons. Break the crayons into about 4 pieces. Put a glass jar in the center of a pot and add water to the pot. Don’t get any water in the jar! Add about a teaspoon of coconut oil to the jar and put it on the stove. Warm it up slowly. Once the coconut oil has melted all the way, add your crayon. Add 1 piece of crayon per teaspoon. You can even mix and match colors and create your own shade! If you add too much crayon the lipstick it will be a little dry, and if you don’t add enough it will be sheer and glossier.  Play around with it!

This recipe is totally safe, too. Most lipsticks are made with petroleum which comes from oil, and crayons are made for children and are non-toxic. No worries!

Now go have fun mixing and matching colors to create your very own lipstick!

XOXO, Chels
