A statement lip is always a sure-fire way to dial up the glamour. With just one swipe, anyone can transform her appearance from meh to stunning. And while everyone is usually a sucker for the timeless red lip, it would be a lie to say that our hearts don’t go racing when we spot some of our fave celebrities in punchy shades of pink, purple and orange

When I want to try out colours that are wilder, I usually have a commitment problem in fear that the colours might not look nice or I may not get enough use out of the lipstick. I then rely on this DIY Vaseline tinted lip balm recipe. I’m always up for anything that’s DIY because aside from being fun, it’s also very wallet friendly. This recipe is great because most the ingredients that are needed are usually around the house of a beauty addict. Plus, it’s just 5 easy steps!
– Pigments, eyeshadow or blush colour of your choice. For my example, I’m going to use pigments by MAC
– A pot of Vaseline
– Large metal ladle
– Small metal spoon for stirring
– Some kind of container to store the lip balm, such as contacts container, weekly pills container, or just an empty jar
1: Choose your colors! You can pick one shade of pigment you like or mix it up to a desired shade.
2: Put half a tsp of Vaseline and the pigment colour of your choice in the ladle. Hover the ladle over a lit candle (about 3 inches away from the flame) and carefully stir with the small spoon until everything is mixed.
3: Remove ladle from heat.
4: Using your spoon, pour the mixture into your container. Do this this extremely carefully, as the mixture will be very hot!
5: Let it cool in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Then you’re done your lipstick is complete! What I really like about this formula is that it’s extremely moisturizing since the main ingredient is Vaseline.
