Follow along with me as I make this unique, DIY tinted lip balm. Let's get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Vaseline
  • 1 small heat resistant bowl
  • 1 medium heat resistant bowl
  • 2 tablespoons
  • Beetroot powder
  • Cosmetic container
Adding Vaseline

1. Add Vaseline

First, measure roughly 1 tablespoon of Vaseline into a small, heat resistant bowl.

It helps to use 2 spoons to push the Vaseline into the bowl.

2. Add beetroot powder

Next, add about 2 tablespoons of beetroot powder to the Vaseline for a beautiful color.

3. Blend

Place your small bowl over a medium bowl filled with very hot water.

The heat will help the products blend together. At the same time, mix to combine. 


Continue to mix until the consistency is liquid. You may need to change the water to maintain a hot enough temperature.


4. Transfer

Pour the liquid by the spoonful into a small cosmetic container with a lid or a lipstick container and allow to solidify before use.

    The instructions says “ add about two tablespoons of beetroot powder “ but the picture below that instruction states and shows

    “ 2 tsp” which is teaspoons not tablespoons. Can you please clarify?
