DIY Natural Lipstick Cover

For someone that doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, I do like for my lips to have a dash of color. I’m not a fan of those heavy, waxy lip sticks that end up on your cup rims and teeth. I prefer a natural tint that will stay put on your lips and moisturize as well.

Many commercial cosmetics contain all sorts of toxins and un-natural ingredients. By making your own at home, you can be sure that you know exactly what you are putting on your lips! All of these ingredients have been chosen specifically for their incredible health benefits, not to mention the beautiful end result which can be tailored to suit your own style and color shade preferences.

Method:

DIY Natural Lipstick Beeswax and Shea Butter

The amount of beeswax you use in your lip stain will determine how firm your lip stain will be. I used equal parts beeswax and shea butter. Both beeswax and shea butter are firm at room temperature. I like my lip balms/stains to be firm. It will loosen up with your body heat when you run your finger over the top. If you want a looser product, use coconut oil or use less beewax.

DIY Natural Lipstick Melt

Pop the glass bowl in the microwave. Heat in 30 sec intervals until the beeswax and shea butter are melted. Use the bamboo skewer to stir.

DIY Natural Lipstick Mix

Mix in a generous amount of beet root and/or hibiscus powder. Stir until you get the desired shade you like and the powder is completely dissolved.

DIY Natural Lipstick Cool

Pour into a cosmetic container and let it cool. I suggest you make these lip stain in small batches. These stains will last for a few months, but they do not have preservatives in them like commercial cosmetics. Nonetheless, the beeswax has natural antibacterial properties and is wonderful for the skin.

Benefits Of Each Ingredient:

Hibiscus and beet root powder are wonderful natural colorants used in cosmetics and consumables. Both plants have a natural red/pinkish color that is rich in antioxidants. They are a good source of folate, which helps stimulate the production and repair of skin cells.

Beeswax has amazing conditioning properties and helps to calm and soothe inflamed skin (great for chapped lips).

Shea butter is full of  natural vitamins and fatty acids that makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin.

Coconut oil is an natural, edible oil which is arguably the best moisturizer out there, it melts on the skin as soon as you apply it, without leaving any kind of residues. It easily seeps into the skin pores, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly.
