For making a blue lipstick at home, you will need wax, butter, oil, pigment OR petroleum jelly, colorant (pigment or wax crayons), oil.

Tips for creating blue lipstick:

  • Start by picking a base, like wax. You can use beeswax, carnauba wax, rice wax, candelilla wax, etc. Along with this, you need some butter like cocoa or shea to make a moisturizing lipstick and some oil like olive oil, sweet almond oil, etc. Melt them together to create your base. You replace this base with some petroleum jelly too, but it won’t be as long-lasting as a wax base.
  • Then, add the pigment. To get the blue color, you could use some crushed blue eyeshadow powder or gently scrape some off using a clean mascara wand. You can also use nontoxic blue crayons. Add this pigment to your wax base and mix it well until completely blended.
  • Pour into a container and cool until it sets. And you will have your blue lipstick made at home.
