2 in 1 Fuchsia DIY Lip Stain and Cream Blush Recipe

Ingredients:

14 grams beeswax
28 grams 76 degree melt point refined coconut oil
8 grams grapeseed oil
10 drops GMO-free Vitamin E oil
10 drops rosemary extract
8 grams red orange oil locking mica shimmer powder

Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
plastic transfer pipettes
seven – 10g (1/3 oz.) lip balm pots with lids
silicone chocolate flower mold
mixing utensil (a butter knife works great!)

Instructions:

For this recipe you will use a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax, coconut oil, grape seed oil and mica. Start by weighing out the beeswax in a glass pyrex measuring cup, then heat the beeswax in the microwave until melted, about 3 minutes. Carefully remove from microwave using a pot holder or kitchen towel, then stir in 28 grams of coconut oil. If mixture starts to solidify, place back in the microwave and heat for 20-30 seconds more until all ingredients have full melted. Now weigh out the grape seed oil and stir into the wax and coconut oil.

Using a plastic transfer pipette, add ten drops of vitamin E. Repeat with the rosemary extract using a new pipette to prevent cross contamination.

Finally weigh out the mica colorant and stir into the cream blush and lip tint base. Mix well, then slowly pour the base equally into seven of the flower shaped cavities of your silicone mold. (Or simply pour into the lip balm pots if you don’t wish to mold your makeup.) Allow the makeup to harden completely, then remove from mold and place one flower shaped 2 in 1 lip and cheek stain into each of your seven lip balm pots and cap.

Allow at least twenty-four hours to pass before using. I don’t know why, but it seems to make a difference on how the makeup looks when applied.  To use, simply add a small amount to cheeks or lips. The resulting product will be a lovely shade of fuchsia on skin with a touch of shimmer. Use less for a lighter, more natural look. Or use more for an intense look. This particular color is not approved for use on eyes.

If you prefer a darker, deeper red or one that is approved for use on eyes, then you can substitute the red orange oil locking mica shimmer powder with a red oxide pigment powder. For a touch of shimmer use 7 grams of red oxide pigment powder and 1 gram of white sparkle pigment powder or diamond dust mica.

Organic Vegan Lip Tint Recipe for Valentine’s Day

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon Illipe Butter
(or Cocoa Butter)
4 teaspoons Carnauba Wax
2 Tablespoons Avocado Oil
1 Tablespoon Sweet Almond Oil
24-36 drops of Essential Oil of choice, optional
5 drops of Vitamin E Oil
2 teaspoons Beet Root Powder

Supplies:

Spoon
Large Glass Pyrex Measuring Cup
6 – 1/4 oz. plastic jars with lids or 10 – .15 oz. lip balm tubes
glass dropper or 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipettes

Instructions:

Begin by measuring out the carnauba wax and illipe butter using a teaspoon and tablespoon measurement. The wax comes in flakes so it should be ready to measure immediately. As the illipe butter is solid at room temp, you will want to grate it in order to measure it. Next, place four teaspoons of carnauba wax in a glass measuring cup and melt in 1 minute increments on reduced power in the microwave. When the wax is melted about half way, add one Tablespoon of the illipe butter and continuing melting. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler on the stove.)

Once the wax and butter have melted fully, measure out the avocado oil and sweet almond oil and pour into the mixture. Stir well. If necessary, place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds or so to re-melt if the mixture starts to solidify when you add the liquid oils. Then using a glass dropper or pipette, measure out and add the essential of your choice – I actually used 3 parts lime peel essential oil and 1 part chocolate flavor oil for mine – and mix well.

The final step in creating your lip tint is to add the red beet root powder. You will need to mix this really, really well otherwise you will have clumps of beet powder throughout your lip stain. Once mixed, pour into your choice of lip balm pots or using a glass dropper to fill lip balm tubes. Cap and allow to cool completely. Then use and enjoy!
