DIY Mac Lipstick Tutorial
Gather your materials
Place a crayon on a napkin and cut it about once inch from the tip. In this example we will use pink. This will make a color in MAC Lipsticks Amplified collection. The color is called Impassioned! If you’re a color fanatic you’ll know the color I’m talking about.
Remove the paper from the part of the crayon that you just cut like so:
Fill a pot of water about this size:
Set the temperature from LO-MED
Place a bowl or cup in the middle of the pot full of water (this will serve as a melting pot).
Take out your coconut oil. This is where you will determine which finish you want for your lipstick. If you’re looking for a sheer finish use 1/2 a tsp of coconut oil per inch of crayon. If you’re looking for a matte finish, use 1/4 tsp of coconut oil per inch of crayon.
Mix the desired amount of coconut oil with the portion of the cut crayon and put them into the center pot.
Once the crayon and coconut oil have fused together, you can pour it into your jewelry tray! Make sure all of the ingredients are mixed well and you have a creamy texture. Pour hot liquid into your tray like this:
Apply with a lipstick brush applicator !
You’re finally finished! You can make all of your favorite MAC colors (or pretty darn close) by mixing different crayons to make your own custom colors!
