To make lip gloss, mix a teaspoon of petroleum jelly with a little blush for color, some mineral eye shadow for shimmer and a drop of essential oil for flavor. Store in a small tub or an empty lip gloss container.
- Put petroleum jelly in a small bowl
Measure 1 teaspoon of petroleum jelly, and place it in a bowl big enough for mixing.
- Add blush
Select the desired shade of blush for the lip gloss, and mix a small amount into the petroleum jelly. Add more until the shade is the right intensity. Cream, gel and powder blushes all work well.
- Add mineral eye shadow
Mineral eye shadow contains mica, which adds shimmer to the gloss. Add a small amount in a neutral shade to the mixture, and blend it well.
- Add essential oil
Essential oil adds scent and flavor to the mixture. Add one drop of a suitable flavor, such as mint, lemon or vanilla.
- Fine tune the ingredients
Test the lip gloss, and adjust the ingredients until it is the right shade, shimmer and scent.
- Store the lip gloss
Transfer the mixture to a small tub or an empty lip gloss container. Apply with your finger, a cotton swab or a lipstick brush.
