Homemade Lip Gloss - Tips, Ideas and Instructions

Homemade lip gloss can be a fun way to keep your lips moist and shiny, while adding the flavors and colors that you crave.

It will only take a little bit of time to make this stuff, and you will be glad you did.

The key when choosing this activity is to have a good idea of how hard you want it to be to make your lip gloss. Since there are a couple of different ways to make your own lip gloss, it's a good idea to know if you want to start from scratch, so to speak, or if you would rather just mix some ingredients and go.

Here's one easy way to make some homemade lip gloss. This is especially good if you're looking for a lip color to use one time or that will work great with your skin, because you use the coloring you already have - your favorite blush.

  • Add blush to some petroleum jelly. If you want shimmer, you can either add some from your stock of light shimmery eye shadows, or choose to add shimmer dust that you might have. Mica shimmer powder is some of the more common kind used. For instance, if you're looking for a peachy shade of lip gloss and you add a peachy colored blush, a light gold or shimmery peach eye shadow will add some sparkle without making the color too light or dark.

  • Once you have all the ingredients of your homemade lip gloss together, you'll need to mix it (Popsicle sticks work best for this job) and put it in a pot to make it easy to get to your lovely new lip shade. If you'd like to add flavor to your new lip gloss, add a drop or two of essential oils. Peppermint will give your lips a fresh feeling, and it smells great, too.

  • You can mix up only enough of your homemade lip gloss for you to use for one day while you're experimenting, or you can make a nice sized batch that you can take with you all the time.

  • Another alternative to blush might be lipstick. If you have a favorite color that you use all the time but it's running out, this can be a great option to use all the way down to the very last bit.

Now, what do you do if you're looking for something that will condition your lips a little better than just plain old petroleum jelly? That's when you make your homemade lip gloss from scratch.

For this lip gloss recipe, you will need:

  • Beeswax and cocoa butter (2 parts each)
  • Coconut and grapeseed oil (1 part each)
  • Flavoring if you like
  • Coloring, such as the last of your lipstick or favorite existing lip gloss, if you like


  • This is really easy, because all you need to do is melt the beeswax, cocoa butter, coconut and grapeseed oil down into a double boiler. When it's all mixed, add the remnants of the lipstick and a couple of drops of the essential oil of your choice and stir until well blended.

  • Pour it into a pot used for lip gloss or mineral eye shadow and allow it to cool. When it's cooled, you're ready to use your new homemade lip gloss.

Of the makeup you can make for yourself, homemade lip gloss is some of the simplest, so whether you're seeking a new color that goes with your favorite blush or you are just feeling creative, you can mix a batch of this stuff up in no time. It's easy, inexpensive and fun.
