Have you ever wondered how to make lipstick at home? Not only this can be a satisfying hobby, but it can also save you money.

Additionally, you know exactly what ingredients you are making it with. In our articles on this website and in our videos on the YouTube channel, we mostly use natural ingredients.

Let’s start!

You Will Need

  • Shea butter
  • Cocoa butter
  • Beeswax
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Mica colors. If you do not have mica colors, you can use any eyeshadow palette. 
  • Small container for the lipstick

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Measurements

  • 10 grams of cocoa butter = 0.35 ounces
  • 30 grams of shea butter = 1.05 ounces
  • 50 grams of almond oil = 1.76 ounces
  • 5 grams of beeswax = 0.17 ounces

Steps On How To Make Lipstick At Home

5- Using a hot water bath, melt the contents of the container. A hot water bath is done by placing a small container in a large pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the container without causing it to burn. 

6- We are going to divide the now melted ingredients into 2 halves to test both mica coloring and eyeshadow coloring.

7- Add about half a teaspoon of the mica color to the first half of the melted ingredients. You can add more or less of the mica powder, depending on how strong you want the color to be. Mix the contents well.

8- For eyeshadow coloring, scrape as much color as needed and add the powder to the second half of the melted ingredients. Mix well.

9- Using a small box of 10 grams, slowly pour the lipstick in.

10- The lipstick should be left to cool down.

How To Apply

Use a lipstick brush to apply it to the lips. We could have added a bit of food flavoring to give it some taste. That is up to you!
