Oh, summer, how we love you! Finally some sunshine, a warm breeze, and fresh air. Our clothes get lighter, our skincare gets lighter, and our foods gets lighter too (hello, salads!) And if you’re anything like us, you’re kissing lipstick goodbye (pun intended) and switching to a more effortless look with lip balms and stains. There are lots of store-bought possibilities, but we love to DIY it using nourishing oils and natural colors.
Here’s how to make your own DIY lip balms and stains in the kitchen:
Not ready to give up your favorite lipstick just yet? Make it lighter and creamier with this gloss recipe that’s also lip-plumping!
No need to carry more than one balm with you; this one is good for lips, dry skin, cuticles, and even to fix flyaway hairs. Plus you can easily fit it in your purse!
You only need four ingredients to make this absolutely tasty lip gloss (which doubles as a cheek stain!).
When you’re slathering sunscreen on before stepping outside this summer, don’t forget to protect your pout! This lip balm recipe is made with green tea and zinc oxide powder.
Believe it or not, freeze-dried raspberries make the best lip and cheek stain. This is so easy, you have to give it a try!
