GET THE LIPS OF YOUR DREAMS
Let’s focus on the lips hacks if you don’t mind! ; )
Surprisingly, conventional lipstick can be a source of harmful chemicals and since it is used on the skin (lips) and near the mouth, these chemicals can be easily absorbed. These homemade lipstick variations let you create a personalized lipstick color that is chemical free and inexpensive to make.
If you aren’t a fan of colored lip sticks, you can make this recipe without any added color options to achieve a basic natural lip chap.
Basic Homemade Lipstick Recipe:
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. It is made from completely natural ingredients and is safe for us on the lips or skin. If you want, you can add color with the following add-ins to create a color of your choice.
Optional Color Add-Ins:
For Red Hues: 1/8 teaspoon of beet root powder or 1 drop of natural red food coloring with no chemical additives. NOTE: Add these very slowly as a little goes a long way!
For Brown/Tan Hues: 1/4 teaspoon (or more for color) of organic cocoa powder, a tiny pinch of cinnamon or turmeric to get the shade you want.
For a more Matte texture: 1/4 teaspoon bentonite clay– I use this with a color so it doesn’t leave a white tint on the lips.
For Scent: A drop of essential oil of choice (optional).
