How do you make a tinted lip balm at home?

You need a combination of a few key ingredients to create the moisturising base, such as coconut oil, beeswax, shea butter and essential oils. Melt all these ingredients into a bowl until it becomes a liquid consistency. Next, add in your colour agent to create the tinted hue. This can be either food colouring or natural powders depending on what colour you would like to achieve. Mix everything together and pour into a small jar container and pop in the fridge to set. And voilà, you have a tinted lip balm.

If you'd rather save the mixology to the professionals you can discover natural, organic and vegan-friendly brands, here at Cosmetify. Just narrow down your search using our ingredient preference filter.

Long gone are the days of weird smelling and barely-there lip balms, instead the beauty industry is now full to the brim with luxurious formulas enriched with protective and soothing properties, as well as intense colour payoff. Tinted lip balms are truly a handbag essential for midday top ups and easy breezy makeup looks.

Can I use tinted lip balm as a blush?

Yes, tinted lip balm can a be a multi-use product in your makeup kit. Not only does it help nourish your lips, it can also add a pop of colour to your skin. Simply swipe or dab the formula on the apples of your cheeks and blend out with your fingertips. This gives you a natural and dewy finish that works perfectly on those no-makeup makeup days. You can also apply tinted lip balms to the bridge of the nose for a fresh-faced flush.

However, as the product will have a creamy consistency, we recommend oily skin types stick to powder formulas for more long-lasting coverage.
