2 in 1 Fuchsia DIY Lip Stain and Cream Blush Recipe
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.
