Morning loves, I'm so happy to have a guest post for you today from Tattered to Taylored. I got to guest post over on her blog yesterday, and today she's sharing an awesome DIY with you all here on mine.
I do not consider myself a DIY expert, at all. I feel like I most often fail. I fell in love with Taylor's blog because she makes some of the neatest stuff, and makes it look super easy. I'm all about easy. Today's post is right up my alley. DIY tinted lip balm, yes please!
I love rich and creamy lipsticks. Lipsticks that pack a punch with pigment on my pout AND feel like butter gliding on. A hot lipstick can change your look with hardly any other makeup. But unfortunately, more often than not I find a lipstick that has a color I love, and a texture I hate. So what do you do... throw it away? NO WAY! You can easily turn your unloved lipstick into a tinted lip balm and all you need is coconut oil.
What you need:
The size of your container will determine how much coconut oil you need. I'm using these small snack containers from the grocery store and empty lipstick tubes. Add your coconut oil and lipstick remnants to a cup and melt in the microwave for about 1 minute. The lipstick and oil will be separated. Now mix the two products together before pouring them in your container choice. After the coconut oil re-hardens you'll be all set. You can put your new lip balm in the freezer to speed up the process!
You now have turned unloved lipstick into a tinted lip balm. Coconut oil is great for the lips, you can even use it alone. Please note that this is coconut oil and if you take it outside with you on a hot summer day, its going to melt... but its great to add to your look before you head out! Thanks so much for having me Mia and I hope you all come visit me over at TatteredtoTaylored!
Thank you for sharing another great DIY with us Taylor!
