How to Make Your Own Lip Balm?How to Make Your Own Lip Balm? Yes this is one of the questions which is asked me several times via mail, queries and in many other ways, so I thought of discussing about this homemade DIY for soft beautiful lips in today's post. Lip Balm is one thing that I was thinking to make on my own since long, because I simply cannot go without lip gloss, lip balms, lip shimmering gels and other form of lip care products since no matter where I go I always put my favorite Maybelline Colossal Kajal and a TINTED LIP BALM for a simple yet perfect everyday look. The idea of a homemade lip balm came to me when I was tired of buying expensive branded lip balms and glosses but never got the satisfactory shade and feel I always wanted, so I thought of trying my own homemade lip balm with a my custom colors, since it was super cheap, super easy and super simple to make out your homemade tinted lip balm and I ended up making 3 tinted lip balms in my favorite shades.

Homemade Lip Balm Recipe for Soft Pink Lips.
Lips shade & Texture :
Before starting with the method of making your own homemade lip balm let me tell you the kind of lips and natural shade I have. I have somewhat dry lips not very dry but little dry from between with little pigmentation on the outer corner of my lips and for this reason I sometimes use lip liners to even out my lips specially if I'm going to apply any light or peach shade lip balms and lipstick.
If you too face similar problem like mine, you can apply any natural shade lip liner or concealer to conceal your lips. While applying any lipstick, go for 1-2 shades darker in lip liner, the color of lipstick you are about to apply.
These are just general tips and you don't need to use lip liners before applying this homemade lip balm. It's only if you have severe pigmentation with discoloration all over your lips, then you should try using a lip liner prior to gloss or balm, since then any lip product won't come out that beautifully as it should.
OK now let's start with the fun part of this simple, quick and easy procedure of making own DIY Homemade Tinted Lip Balm.

Method / Procedure:
Its super easy to make your own DIY Homemade Lip Balm for Soft Kissable Lips. Its quick, easy yet looks so smooth on your lips, the look which even the high ended branded lip gloss can't give at times. Without wasting any time, let me quickly tell you the steps to make your own lip balm.
|Tinted Lip Balm Recipe|
Pour all the ingredients Vaseline, Coconut/ Almond/Olive Oil, Vitamin E Capsules, essence etc (except the crayon stick), in a double boiler. You can even use a microvave for this but I preferred doing on stove to be on the safer side.
Keep stirring the mixture for about 20-30 seconds till everything dissolves and mixes up to a liquid consistency. Add in the half piece of desired color crayon stick to it and keep mixing. Within just few seconds, 20 or so you will see the stick has got dissolved in the mixture giving the pigmented color to the liquid. Now keep stirring it for 10 seconds more and you are done.
You can add more color stick depending on the shade you want.Once you feel you have got the desired shade, switch off the gas.
You can even do the spoon trick, of using a spoon full of the mixture and leaving in freezer for 5 minutes to get an idea of exact shade and add color as required.
Immediately after switching the gas, pour the mixture into empty lip balm jar, close it and put it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. I normally leave it overnight in summers. That's it you are done.
