Homemade lip stain uses some honey, which is great for flavor and for moisture. Make homemade lip stain with help from the Beauty Director at Anisa International in this free video clip.
Video times listed below in bold:
- 0:00 – 0:16 – Introduction.
- 0:17 – 0:37 – You will need: Honey (great for flavor and for moisture), Cocoa Powder (cinnamon may substitute or other flavorful ingredient), Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E Oil + a small container (for storage), a brush (for application to lips), a spoon and a mixing bowl.
- 0:38 – 1:01 – First, add a little honey to the mixing bowl, then “dust in a little cocoa powder,” followed by the coconut oil (editor’s note: to help lock in the moisture), shea butter (to help pack in the moisture) and the vitamin E oil.
- 1:02 – 1:10 – Second, use the bowl and the spoon to mix everything into a delicious looking paste. Feel free to customize the flavor.
- 1:11 – 1:16 – If the consistency is too loose, add a little more shea butter.
- 1:17 – 1:31 – Help it last longer, add beeswax to this mixture. This balm, as-is, will still last for “a couple of weeks” in an air-tight container when placed in the refridgerator.
- 1:32 – 1:37 – Third, make sure it is thoroughly mixed. Be sure to get all of the lumps out.
- 1:38 – 1:43 – Fourth, scoop the mixture into the small storage container.
- 1:44 – 1:49 – Fifth, place container into the refridgerator for several hours, to help ensure that it sets correctly allowing all of the ingredients to properly blend.
- 1:50 – 1:56 – This formula is “super great for adding a lot of moisture, great for the harsh climates in the winter or great for options in the summer.”
- 1:57 – 2:03 – Be sure to store this at below room temperature, preferably in an airtight container.
- 2:04 – 2:23 – Video closes.
