There are a lot of great tutorials on how to diy a lip gloss or lip balm out there, but many of them are pretty complicated. I wanted to make an easy tinted lip balm, out of stuff I already had at home. I was inspired by this etsy article on making lip balm in vintage tins, and this easy free people diy lip gloss post.
All you need for this project is some vaseline (I used the lip therapy version), your favorite essential oils (I just used rose), an old lipstick or blush, a pretty vintage container if you can find one, and something to mix it up with (I used a chopstick).
Make sure your tin is clean, and scoop out your vaseline into it.
Add your color. I used a matte balm from revlon in a bright coral color. You can also use blush!
Add in a few drops of your essential oil (8-10 to start, add more if it feels right), and mix it all up. You can stick it in the fridge if you would like.
There you have it! I also added a pretty sticker to the top of my vintage tin. It looks a little funky, but I really like the results!
