I’ve been doing it natural balm, lipstick and lipstick recipes for years, although it took me a while to get to the point of a recipe. Normally, I would just make eyeballs of the ingredients, which shows you how easy it is to make this recipe.
This homemade lipstick recipe mimics a creamy, full-coverage lipstick and contains many colors. However, if you are not a fan of colored lipsticks, you can make this recipe without any added color options to get a basic natural pencil.
This is the beauty of doing makeup from scratch: you can do it exactly the way you want you I like!
Why homemade lipstick?
Wondering why you would take the time and trouble to do your own natural makeup?
Surprisingly, Conventional lipstick can be a source of harmful chemicals and because it is used on the skin (lips) and near the mouth, these chemicals can be easily absorbed. These variations of homemade lipsticks allow you to create a personalized, chemical-free, low-cost lipstick color.
Plus, making homemade just means more. Make them as a cheap but thoughtful gift during the holidays or birthdays that friends and family are sure to enjoy.
Customizing the perfect natural lip color
To get the tone of the picture above, I used a little beet powder (1/8 teaspoon or less), 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder, 1/8 teaspoon bentonite clay, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and a drop of peppermint essential oil (just because I like the smell). Go to the recipe for other color customization options, all from natural dyes.
If you like a darker shade, add a little more cocoa powder after mixing to darken it slightly until you get to your favorite tone.
Now let’s get into the recipe!

Optional color accessories
- For red shades: 1/8 teaspoon beet root powder or 1 drop of natural red food coloring without chemical additives. NOTE: Add them very slowly, as it goes a little way.
- For brown / brown tones: 1/4 teaspoon or more to get organic cocoa powder color, a little cinnamon or turmeric to get the shade you want
- For a more matte texture: 1/4 teaspoon bentonite clay: I use it with a color so as not to leave a white tone on the lips.
- For perfume: a drop of essential oil of first choice optional
Homemade lipstick instructions
Melt the beeswax, shea butter / cocoa butter and coconut oil in a glass jar without a lid in a small pot of water over low heat (not boiling). It must be melted quickly because so little of each ingredient is used.
When melted, remove from heat and add any optional ingredients, such as color or aroma.
Once all the ingredients are well mixed but still liquid, use a dropper to pour into the lip liner container. I used the dropper from an old tincture bottle. Fill it just below the top because it will expand slightly as it cools. Let cool for at least half an hour.
Store it in a cool place (below 80 degrees) or it will soften.
