If you’ve ever thought about the ingredients in your lipstick and wondered if there was a way to make your lip routine more simple and natural, then DIY lipstick might be right up your alley. Making your own lipstick or lip balm doesn’t have to be a big undertaking. There are plenty of quick and simple lip recipes out there that utilize ingredients you probably already have laying around the house. 

The type of DIY lipstick you make is up to you and your tastes. Depending on whether you are going for great color, gloss, or even just a lip balm that smells absolutely yummy, there are plenty of recipes to try or kits that contain every ingredient and recipe you need to get started.

Tasty Lip Balm Kits Supply You With Everything You Need


One of our favorites comes from our very own Blogger Society member Cari on her blog Everything Pretty. She makes the most mouth-watering sounding DIY Lemon Meringue Essential Oil lip balm with her Simply Earth Essential Oil Starter Box. Cari’s kit comes will all the ingredients needed to make this delicious sounding balm:

beeswax
coconut oil                                                                           
almond oil
Frankincense essential oil
Lemon essential oil 

Candy, Crayons, and Fruits Make Fun and Simply Ravishing Shades

Some of our favorite beauty YouTubers have thought outside the box and created DIY lipsticks with candy, fruits, crayons and eyeshadow. If you are like many of us, you probably have shades of eyeshadow you never wear because the color just doesn’t work. Alejandra Styles puts her unused eyeshadows to work as new lipstick shades in her DIY lipstick tutorial.


And YouTuber SaraBeautyCorner offers up an incredibly unique DIY lipstick tutorial using all kinds of colorful candies like gummy worms, jelly beans, and lolly pops. Her shades of cotton candy and rainbow lipstick are something out of a story book. 


Going All-Natural and Organic

For those of us most concerned about keeping it natural, but still getting great color and lip-feel out of our DIY homemade lipsticks, the Simple Life Mom blog has a great recipe that uses sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax for the texture. Use natural ingredients like cinnamon, turmeric, and beet root powder to play around with different shades. She also adds a dash of peppermint or lavender oil for a nice fragrance.

    I would definitely try this, but not sure the cost to make it "cute" would be worth it and I'd likely just mostly appreciate the opportunity to recycle empty vials.

    I've never tried before. Not sure it's something I'd invest time and money into....
