Making Process of Lip Gloss at Home
Making your own lip gloss is a fun, economical way to get your desired shade. You need petroleum jelly, wax, oil, colorant and essential oils to make it. Heat the ingredients over low heat, stirring in the oil and colorant until blended. Then add essential oils for scent and pour into containers. Let's describe the making process of Lip Gloss at home step by step.
Gather ingredients and necessary supplies
Before you start, make sure you have everything you need. This includes:
1-A clean work surface
2-A lip balm or Vaseline
3-A small pot
5-A lip gloss container
6-A measuring spoon and
7-Optional: food coloring, essential oils, and glitter
Melt down beeswax and coconut oil
Beeswax or paraffin grated or in pearls and coconut oil are natural ingredients that can be used to make lip gloss. To melt them down, put them in a double boiler or a glass bowl that can fit on top of a pot of boiling water. Stir until the beeswax and coconut oil are melted and combined.
Add in color and flavoring
If you want to add color and flavoring to it, you can do so by adding a few drops of beet juice, lipstick nubs, food coloring or natural extract or essential oil. To add color, start with just a few drops and mix until you get the desired shade. If you want to add flavoring, add a few drops of essential oil or natural extract and mix well. You can experiment with different combinations of colors and flavors to find your perfect blend.
Mix in petroleum jelly or carrier oils
Now it's time to add in the petroleum jelly or carrier oil like castor, sesame, almond, jojoba, coconut, olive etc or a combination of the above. This will help to thicken up the mixture and give it a nice, glossy finish. Start with a small amount and mix it in well. You can always add more if you want a thicker gloss.
Decide on a container for the finished product
Now that you have your ingredients, it's time to decide on a container for your finished product. You can use anything from a small jar to a lip balm tube. If you're using a jar, you'll need to use a lip brush to apply the gloss. If you're using a tube, you can simply apply the gloss directly to your lips.
Once you've decided on a container, it's time to start making your lip gloss!
Pour the mixture into the container
Pour the mixture into the container. Make sure the container is clean and dry before adding the mixture. If you're using a container with a lid, make sure the lid is tight so the gloss doesn't leak.
Cool and let them set
