Natural Lip Gloss Recipe Tips
If you want a natural lip gloss look then start with a lipliner pencil in natural range. Using a natural color is best for your first recipe because you’ll see how much product you need to use to achieve the intensity of color you desire.
Two that work well for this recipe are:
Estee Lauder Spice Lip Pencil
Mac Cosmetics Spice Lip Liner
Be careful with reds because sometimes they turn hot pink.
Stick with colors in the deep beige or brown range.
When you line your lips, fill them in and then apply your homemade lip gloss over them.
You can make dark shades of lipliner lighter.
Try using cheap makeup products for your first attempt.
Lip Gloss Recipe Ingredients

How To Mix Lip Gloss Ingredients
1. Take out the pieces of the colored liner and put it into a measuring cup. Start with half of the color.
2. Is your favorite lip pencil a twist up one? Then just use the colored liner. Twist up as much as you need.
3. Put the lip pencil liner in a small glass measuring cup that is safe to use in the microwave. Microwave for a few seconds to melt it. Then put in the clear lipstick.
Next, just follow the directions in the Easy Lipgloss Recipe. The the liner tends to be a slightly harder consistency than the lipstick, that’s why you melt it a few seconds first – then add the clear lipstick. Tweak the color by adding more liner or clear lipstick to your mixture.
*You can also use a twist-up lip pencil to make this recipe.
Some of the best makeup recipes are actually the easiest. The beauty of using only a couple of products is that you can “tweak” the amounts for lots of different color variations. Now that you have experienced how easy it is to do a simple lip gloss recipe, try mixing your other cosmetics together.
