Learn how to create your own rose scented DIY all-in-one beauty stick for lips, eyes and cheeks. This vegan plant based beauty stick glides onto skin with ease and blends beautifully. It also makes a great eyeshadow base!
Naturally scented with Bulgarian rose floral wax, this all-in-one beauty stick can also be customized in your favorite colors. Simply swap out the mica powders used to tint this beauty stick with your own blend of lip and eye safe micas.
I have also created free printable labels for my all-in-one beauty sticks that fit the eco-friendly 100% recyclable paperboard packaging that I used. You can find my labels after the recipe for my all-in-one beauty stick below.
Vegan All-in-One Beauty Stick Recipe
© Rebecca D. Dillon
.25 oz. candelilla wax
.75 oz. babassu oil
.25 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil)
.25 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.2 oz. (lip + eye safe) coral mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) cellini blue mica
.05 oz. (lip + eye safe) super pearly white mica
You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my all-in-one beauty stick recipe.
Begin by weighing out the candelilla wax and babassu oil into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat in the microwave at 40% power until melted. Alternately you may also use a double boiler. Take care removing your melted ingredients from the microwave as the glass will be hot. I recommend using a towel or pot holder when handling.
Next, weigh out the fractionated coconut oil (or camellia seed oil) and rose wax. (The rose wax gives this all-in-one beauty stick recipe a beautiful light rose fragrance!) Mix these ingredients into the melted candelilla wax and babassu oil until thoroughly combined and the rose wax has melted.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh out and add the mica powders. Mix well so the mica is fully incorporated into the makeup base.
Now slowly and carefully pour your rose scented all-in-one beauty stick into a container or containers of your choice. I used the 1.5 oz. brown paperboard push up tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging. (I poured mine a little too hot and it caused a hole down the center. You can avoid this by practicing patience and pouring at a cooler temperature. My bad.)
Once your vegan all-in-one beauty sticks have cooled, simply cap and label them as desired. You download my free PDF printable labels for my rose scented all-in-one beauty sticks here. (These labels are free for personal use only.)
To use your all-in-one beauty sticks, simply apply to eyelids, cheeks, or lips as desired. You can further blend the color with a makeup sponge if you like.
If you are creating your own DIY all-in-one beauty sticks to sell, there’s a lot of important information you should be aware of in order to be FDA compliant in the USA. You can find information on the FDA website regarding the use of color additives in cosmetics here.
In addition, mica-based pearlescent pigments and other composite pigments used in cosmetics are NOT FDA approved at this time. The FDA however is currently exercising discretionary enforcement of these color additives while they are in discussion over regulatory status and safety. You can find further discussion on this at Marie Gale’s blog here.
For help labeling your vegan all-in-one beauty sticks, I recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
