Since the Jelly beam highlighter is sold out. Here is an easy DIY while you wait patiently for the real thing. Try doing a small portion to try first. I don’t have the exact measurements. Play it by ear. (a half of teaspoon each highlighters and pigments and 1 teaspoon aloe gel)
Jelly Beam Highlighter
- a Small plastic container
- Iridescent Powder highlighter
- Makeup Pigment Bronze color (no glitter)
- Cream Highlighter
- Aloe Vera Gel
Please find below more of my favorite DIY
- 2 teaspoons pure, filtered, unbleached cosmetic grade beeswax pastilles
- 1 teaspoon organic raw shea butter
- 3 teaspoons organic unrefined coconut oil
- 20 drops of essential oil of choice (I do 10 drops of peppermint and 10 of tangerine)
- 6 3/16 oz. (5.5 ml) lip balm tubes
Combine all of the ingredients in a small sauce pot and put it on the oven on low-medium heat. Stir the mixture until all of the beeswax and shea butter has melted. Turn the burner off and remove the pot from the heat. Fill the lip balm tubes using a funnel. Let the tubes sit undisturbed for 20 minutes to cool and set (leave any spill-over temporarily undisturbed – it is not worth trying to wipe it off right now).
After your balm has cooled and set, it is ready to go! I decorated my balms by printing out eye-catching graphics on standard office labels (2 by 4 inches, 10 per sheet), cutting them to size, and then covering them with clear packing tape, also cut to size. All of you DIYers out there will have no problem with this, and will have lots of fun either designing personalized labels or finding cute graphics and patterns.
This recipe holds up well in the summer heat and is fantastic for protecting lips from the dry winter air!
For those of you that enjoy putting recipes together, hear are a few that I love doing on my spare time.
