Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

Which makeup personality are you?

A) I’ve perfected the “no makeup” makeup look. My face looks so fresh and dewy people think I roll out of bed singing as birds and random squirrels make my bed.

B) Well, in the past few years makeup hasn’t really been a priority. One time I may have even gotten distracted in the middle of getting ready and ended up at the grocery store with eyeliner on only one eye. Fine, twice.

C) Makeup?

Whatever your style, I think you’re going to love the soft, sheer blush color of this tinted lip balm recipe. It one of my tried-and-true staples that moisturizes and protects, but is light enough to be worn year-round. It’s also made using the same mica powder as this homemade blush, which you can whip up in just a few minutes to go along with your lip balm.

No Time To Make Your Own?

This tinted lip balm is made with excellent ingredients, including many of the same ones you’ll find below.

This blush-colored tinted lip balm recipe moisturizes and protects, but is light enough to be worn year-round. It's super easy to make, too! AND you can use your leftovers to make powdered blush in under 5 minutes.
