How to make your own lip balm

5
Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)
We all find ourselves buying way too much same-coloured lip balms but in different shades, or just way too much lip balm in general. It ends up costing a fortune yet we find ourselves in the same trap time and time again. It’s so much cheaper as well as fun to make your very own!
What you'll need: 
petroleum jelly
eyeshadow
an old lip balm case
a spoon
a mixing dish
a lip brush
1: 
Scoop some petroleum jelly onto a mixing dish (Vaseline will work fine). Note, the more jelly you put on the mixing dish, the more lip balm you will end up with.
2: 
Add a little eyeshadow colour of your choice to the petroleum jelly.
3: 
Mix together the petroleum jelly and eyeshadow. The petroleum jelly will also ensure the lips are moisturized, while the eyeshadow will create an envious, long-lasting colour.
4: 
Test your home made lip balm with a lip brush.
5: 
When you’re happy with your choice of colour, scoop it into your old lip balm case and you’re finished!
Conclusion: 
Enjoy your new lip balm and remember don’t throw away old eyeshadow, turn them into lip colours!
Tips: 
To make the colour more intense, add some more eyeshadow or a stronger pigment to the mix.
Other eyeshadow colours can be added to make a more unique colour choice.
Old blush can also be used as well as concealer for a nuder colour
