Steps Involved:

How to make your Lipsticks at home?

  1. Melt the beeswax and mix it with one teaspoon of coconut oil and olive oil to achieve the desired consistency. Remember to take your time in this process, so add all the ingredients wisely.

Note: This will count up to the perfect desired texture of your lipstick.

2. If you want a matte finish add a little more amount of beeswax , for a glossier look add oil.

3. Whereas, olive oil will act as the base substance for your lipstick and will get it the same texture you are looking for.

4. Addition of olive oil will act as a moisturising ingredient which will help to keep your lips hydrated and nourish your lips due to the fatty acid content present in olive oil.

5. Remember to choose a quality olive oil.

#1: Add colourants

6. A lipstick is all abouts its colour. And to get the desired colour shade you can use your old lipstick or different organic colours from your kitchen pantry such as turmeric to get yellow shade or beetroot powder for brownish shade. Apart from this you can also use cocoa powder.

7. You can also go for artificial colours from some online stores.

8. Don’t restrict yourself from trying different pigments, you can always try to mix different colours to experiment and get the perfect shade you are looking for.

#2: Add fragrance to enhance its usage

9. A fragrance in lipstick can provide a pleasant sensory experience for you. Also, these fragrances can cover up the unpleasant smell of the mixture present. A drop or two will suffice so don’t add much.

10. Start with a drop or two and then add as per desired fragrance. (PS: Fragrance in lipsticks can trigger emotions and memories by creating a deeper connection.)

#3: Mix well

11. For easy use, mix everything well and pour it into a container. You can also use an old lipstick case or a small container and keep it in the fridge to let it settle appropriately before using the lipstick.

12. Keep checking on the state of lipstick and don’t take it out unless it is perfectly hardened.

13. Once hardened, now it is ready to use!

Please note!

Maintain a hygienic environment while preparing your DIY Lipstick along with using all the organic products.

Final Thoughts

Making your own lipstick is not just a fun summer project; it is also a rewarding skill for expressing your individuality. On the other hand, if you use homemade lipstick, you know that it is chemical-free and safe for your skin.

Studies have found that cosmetic products nowadays often contain harmful chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde.

While you use almost all the industry-made products, start by making your own lipstick first to understand the difference. Then, you can also switch to any homemade products and remedies you are looking for.
