DIY lip tint26/06/2015
What better time for DIY projects than summer vacation? If you’re feeling bored these days and have some free time on your hands, definitely try this one out! As it’s always the case with all my DIY projects, this one is pretty simple, quick and very inexpensive to make too. I’m so pleased with how the final product turned out and my favorite thing about it that it’s highly customizable – you can chose the color, the intensity and the scent of it, as well as the package.
As I mentioned in my last make-up update, one of my nude lipsticks broke after being used just a couple of times. I was reluctant to let it go to waste so I just decided to recycle it so to speak. Along with it, I also had a few samples of lipsticks and a lip balm I’ve never used. I ended up halving the lip balm and mixing one part with red and orange lipstick samples and the other part with nudes and pinks. I melted the mixtures in a stainless steel spoon over a candle flame and poured them into these acrylic containers that I once bought glitters in. It took around twenty minutes for them to completely cool off and harden and they were ready for use! The color is sheer but still visible and the finish is creamy and slightly glossy because of the balm. I didn’t bother with adding an aroma but you could definitely do that if you want.
I’ve been using these literally everyday to add moisture and a hint of color to my lips; they’re such a great alternative for lipstick on days when you don’t feel like trying too hard with your make-up!
