DIY lipstick out of eyeshadow

Making eyeshadow lipstick

1. Put the eyeshadow powder into a bowl

First, take any old eyeshadow that you have, or blush, or any sort of powder cosmetic.

This is great if you ever have a palette with lots of shades in, and there’s one that you’re not crazy about for your eyes, but you think it would make a really great lip color. I’m going to use a mauve color.

Then put some of the shadow into a mixing bowl. I’m just using the back of a makeup brush to help me scrape it out of the palette into the bowl.

2. Mix with vaseline

Next, just mix it together with some vaseline.

3. Apply the lipstick

Once all mixed together, simply apply it onto your lips with a lipstick brush.

DIY beet powder lipstick

This is a more organic, natural way to make lipstick; we are using beet powder here. However, if you don’t have beet powder, you could do it with actual beets.

Making beet powder lipstick

1. Mix the powder with vaseline

Repeat the same process as before, but this time with your beet powder. Beet powder tends to get hard, so you might need to break it up a bit.

2. Apply the lipstick

Once mixed with vaseline, apply it to your lips. This version of lipstick is more subtle than the first one. It’s not going to be as pigmented because obviously, eyeshadow already has those pigments in there, so this is more of a tint.

We love these easy DIY lipsticks. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how you can turn eyeshadow or beet powder into lipstick. The vaseline helps to moisturize your lips and creates a smooth consistency.

You can also do this with any color, so play around, have fun, and see what shades you can create!
