Makeup Tip: Unleash your lipstick creativity

If you cannot find lipstick of your favorite color or shade, you can make one yourself. Just take two or more different shades of lipstick and mix them together in proportions that produce the shade you desire. Be creative. You might create shades you never thought possible -- and like them!

It is best to mix lipstick shades from the same brand/makeup line because they would have the same base and therefore should be compatible. As an extra, you can make your lipstick double as a healing balm by adding a bit of vitamin E: just prick and squeeze a vitamin E gel cap into your mix. But don't overdo it -- too much oil from the gel caps might excessively soften your lipstick.

Keep the lipstick you created tightly closed in a small vial or container, such as a lip gloss container.
