If you love buying makeup and also have a spot in your heart for DIY projects, this tutorial is your perfect match! Imagine being able to create any shade of lipstick you want without forking over your entire paycheck to the beauty counter clerk. It’s totally possible!
What You Need
Two pieces of bubblegum
Food coloring (your choice)
Empty lipstick container
Start by unwrapping two pieces of bubblegum and placing them in your microwavable bowl.
Add a scoop of Vaseline — about a tablespoon. This will decrease the stickiness of the gum.
Using your food coloring choices, add as many drops as necessary to achieve the pigment you desire.
Pop the bowl in a microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Put the mixture back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
Once everything has melted, stir with your spoon one last time.
Open an empty lipstick container and scoop in your mixture.
Apply your new, personalized shade of lipstick and show it off to everyone!
