DIY Raspberry Lip Stain - How to Make Your Own Lip Stain

Hello Gals!

Dabbling in DIY makeup/beauty products is definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. The whole experience of creating, mixing and measuring is quite the thrill, a thrill that leaves me feeling a bit like a mad scientist.

How to Make Your Own Lip Stain




My latest concoction is a tasty raspberry lip stain, that uses fresh raspberries.
My preference for making lip stains has always been to use fresh berries as they are full of anti oxidants and contain skin nourishing properties.


You will need:
  • 6 raspberries
  • 2-3 drops of coconut oil
* Olive oil or almond oil may be used in place of the coconut oil*


Method:
In a small bowl, mash the raspberries with a fork. Next add in your coconut oil and mix thoroughly. Strain the juice and pour into a small container.
Apply to your lips and with your finger tips or a lip brush.
Store in the fridge, and toss after 2-3 days.



How to Make Your Own Lip Stain





I think lip stains are perfect for those "no-makeup look days" as they give a natural flushed glow to the both the cheeks and lips, so I enjoy sporting a stain while I'm running errands or meeting up with my girlfriends for a casual lunch date. 




 How to Make Your Own Lip Stain

With this basic recipe, you can also create different variations to customize your lip stain to your liking. Here are a few of my favourite ways to add a little twist:

  • Add a little flavour essence like mint to create a lip stain with a minty flair.
  • For a deeper stain, add blackberries or blueberries 
  • Also apply to cheeks for a soft flushed look.

 Thanks for stopping by.

Are you a fan of lip stains?

  13. This is a great idea. You should type of all of your how to-s and images and create some type of booklet. I'm sure it would be a great sell in your store. You could make it cheap on shutterfly and sell it at whatever price you choose. :)

  16. I love using lip stains as well, they're perfect for those days where you want something on your lips but lipstick is a little too much. This recipe sounds really good, but it also sounds delicious!

  17. Hi dear Keisha! What an interesting recipe for lips! Lastly I'm using a lot the lip perfector by Clarins. I think it contains also some nourishing oils =)
