How to Make Lip Gloss at Home


By Tiffany Moore

Why do I make lip gloss at home when it's cheap and easy to buy? Two good reasons to make your own lip gloss.  First, homemade lip gloss contains zero preservatives, artificial colors, or artificial sweeteners so it's gentle even on the most sensitive skin. Second, you can create different shades and taste by experimenting with various essential oils to suit your mood.

Some people think making lip gloss at home is hard but it's actually very simple if you follow the recipe accordingly.

The ingredients needed to make homemade lip gloss can be found at either a grocery store or large craft store. If you can't find them locally, you can purchase online.


1. Base

To protect your skin, you should use either use beeswax or petroleum jelly as the base of lip gloss as it shields your lips from harmful UV rays that can cause cracked lips and make your lips ultra dry.


2. Vitamin E

A powerful antioxidant that neutralizes damaging free radicals such as pollution, cigarette smoke, drugs, pesticides and other destructive chemicals that are unhealthy to your skin cells. Vitamin E has anti-aging properties that gives you younger looking skin.


3. Flavoring

This is used to create personalized lip gloss. You can add whatever flavor (essential oil) you like, such as aloe vera, peppermint, lemon, honey, apricot, cherry, cranberry, rose or vanilla. If you want to use real fruits for flavoring, you'll need to boil the fruit, squeeze and sift the juice before adding to the mixture.



How to Make Homemade Lip Gloss Basic Recipe

1. Combine 1 cup petroleum jelly with ½ ounce beeswax in a container.


2. Dissolve the mixture in the microwave oven for 30 seconds. Stir.


3. Add 3-4 capsules of Vitamin E.


4. Add the fruit extract or a few drops of essential oil of your choice for added flavor.


5. Pour the lip gloss mixture in small containers or jars and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.


6. Allow it to cool completely before applying on your lips.




In a few simple steps, you can make lip gloss at home easily at very little cost. Your homemade lip gloss protects your lips against the drying effect of the cold, wind and central heating while leaving them soft and shimmering all day!
