Shimmery lip gloss
One of the easiest lip stain recipe for you to start with is the shimmery lip gloss. What’s great about this recipe is that it requires two ingredients only which are Vaseline and organic blush. You will also need something to stir it with like coffee stirrer. Vaseline is actually a good option as it is good for your lips because of its moisturizing effects. You will need to add a spoonful of Vaseline into a small bowl, then use the coffee stirrer to scrape the powder from your blush. Mix the two ingredients thoroughly then transfer into a new container and that’s it. You now have a lip stain that will add life to your lips.
Pomegranate lip stain
Since we are talking about pink lip stains, using pomegranate to stain your lips with might be a good idea. To start, simply peel a pomegranate and get a few cloves. Crush the cloves of pomegranate to get the juice. Strain afterwards to remove any hard part left behind then add a dash of coconut oil. Mix thoroughly then transfer to a new container. You now have a pink lip stain that you can swap with your heavy lipstick.
Mini lip stains
Another option to consider when it comes to lip stains is making mini lip stains like the ones you put in small tin containers. You will need 2 tablespoons of organic white beeswax pastilles, 2 tablespoons of sweet almond oil, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and ½ teaspoon powdered pink plush or ¼ teaspoon of deep purple lipstick. You will need to place a medium saucepan with two inches of water over medium heat and bring to simmer. Place the almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, and coconut oil in a metal bowl over the simmering water. Stir until the ingredients have melted and combined. Stir in the color into the mixture until it has dissolved then spoon into small tin cans and leave them to cool before closing the cans.
Berry cherry lips
Can’t get enough of cherry lips? The combination of pinkish red is guaranteed to make your lips pretty enough to kiss. Put 4 cherries and 3 raspberries in the microwave and heat until they are soft. Blend them afterwards. Strain the mixture to collect the juice and to remove any hard parts. Add teaspoons of almond oil or olive oil and mix. Transfer into containers and place in the fridge to freeze them for a bit. Apply the lip stains whenever you need to.
As you can see, making your own berry pink lip stains is not that hard to do. With just a few ingredients and a bit of creativity on your part, you will be able to play with your lip stains so that you won’t have to rely on your lipstick all the time.
