DIY BEAUTY, LIP GLOSS





There was an advantage to working with
young women before I retired.  Some of
then knew the best beauty tips and tricks.
I would of try them out if I thought  they 
were age appropriate for me.  Here are 
some DIY lip glosses I have made. The
web sites I have also included have DIY
recipes for lip gloss.







DIY BERRY FLAVOR LIP GLOSS

1 pack favorite flavor drink mix
petroleum jelly
empty recycled container
( mint tin or juice  bottle cap)
small recycled mixing  container
disposable gloves
old newspaper or towel

Prep your work surface with newspaper or 
old towel. In a micro-wave safe container, 
heat jelly until melted. Jelly will be very hot
BE CAREFUL!  Carefully remove melted jelly 
and  add drink mix until you get the desired
shade you like. I wear disposable gloves to 
avoid getting stained hands.  Stir and mix
until drink mix has completely dissolved. 
Fill up your container and let lip gloss cool. 

TIP:  

Save the caps off my 64 oz bottles of juice
or save my mint tins  to use for 
my lip gloss.

Use pre-sweetened  drink mixes if think lip
gloss is too tart! 



















CHOCOLATE LIP GLOSS

cocoa powder
petroleum jelly
empty recycled container
( mint tin or juice  bottle cap)
small recycled mixing  container
disposable gloves
old newspaper or towel

Prep your work surface with old newspaper
or old towel. In a micro-wave safe container,

and add cocoa  until you get desired shade
of brown.  I wear gloves to avoid getting 
stained hands. Stir and mix until the drink
mix has completely dissolved.  Fill up your 
container and let lip gloss cool. 

TIP:

Substitute ground cinnamon, allspice, or pumpkin
pie spice for cocoa
