Do It Yourself Monday #002 - Luscious Lip Balms

This week I am going to show you how to make a lip balm. If you have a lipstick that is not a nice consistency, or an eye shadow that you would love to have as a lip colour then you are in the right place!

Ingredients
Obviously you do not need to use these exact products, nor do you need to use all of them but I suggest you use:

Vaseline
As many Eye shadow and Lip Colour you wish, choose ones that will mix nicely
Lip gloss
Small container (not in photograph)

Take your Vaseline and scoop some into a small container. I did not fill the container as I did not want to use too much Vaseline, but you can use as much as you like as long as you leave some space for the other ingredients.

Get your eye shadow and add some to the container, the more you use the more pigmented it will be. It is better to add too little as you can always add more if it isn’t enough.

Get your lipstick (optional), or in my case a colour stick, and add it to the mixture. As I said you can use just one or the other, I chose to use both as I thought they would produce a nice colour.

Then mix all the products together. I used the end of an eye shadow brush to give it a good mix. Once mixed you can see what colour it has produced, I wasn’t quite happy with mine so I added a slightly darker eye shadow.

Once you are happy with the colour add a small amount of lip gloss (any colour will do, make sure you don't add too much or it will be too runny) to make the lip balm a better consistency that applies nicely. Again, mix it together and then you need to put it into the microwave to help melt the lipstick and to help it set nicely.

I did it in small intervals for about 1 minute. Make sure you mix it in between to ensure the lipstick has melted fully. Once you are done place it in the freezer for around half an hour to set it and you will end up with something like this.

I am really pleased with how this lip balm came out, it looks really pretty on. I hope you enjoyed this DIY Monday and let me know if you made a lip balm!
