How To Make Matte Lipstick DIY: Easy Steps To Follow

Matte lipstick is high-end and expensive but can be easily made at home. Matte lipsticks must be applied in layers and should not be applied randomly. A layer of a matte lip is applied in two ways: with the help of a brush or using your fingers.

I’m sure you would love to know how to make matte lipstick DIY at home, especially if you want to know how to make your own lipstick. This is something that has been on my mind for a long time.

I’ve been using matte lipstick for years, and it always disappoints me when those tubes dry up, and there’s no more product inside. 

So the fact that I would like to learn how to do this is not surprising after reading many articles about makeup, hair products, beauty secrets, perfumes, etc.

If you are looking for a way to save money, then you might think about making your own lipstick at home. Depending on your availability, you can make it out of all sorts of ingredients. In this article, I will teach you how to make matte lipstick at home.

Can You Make Matte Lipstick DIY?

I’ve already indicated how easy it is to make your own lipstick at home. Beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and an organic colorant are all that is required.

A tiny bit of zinc oxide is also required to create matte lipstick. Zinc oxide is a component of sunscreen and will increase your lipstick’s SPF by a modest amount.


  • Beeswax – 1.5 tablespoons
  • Shea butter – 1 tablespoon
  • Coconut oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Vitamin E oil – 2 to 5 drops
  • Zinc oxide – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Rose clay – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Lavender essential oil – 1 to 2 drops


Make The Lipstick

  • Beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil should all be mixed in a double boiler.
  • Melt while frequently stirring over medium heat until all components are melted.
  • Turn the heat off.
  • Include vitamin E oil, lavender, zinc oxide, and the colorant of choice.
  • Stir thoroughly until it is a single color.

Put The Lipstick In The Mold

  • Remove the lipstick container’s base and cover.
  • To bring the transparent inner part up, turn the bottom white portion of the mechanism all the way.
  • Attach the translucent inner portion to the lipstick mold with clips.
  • Start pouring into the bottom of the blank case while holding the lipstick mold inverted on a table.
  • Quickly insert the lipstick container with the melted lipstick mixture.
  • Don’t go past the tiny white gate.
  • Place the complete case (and the mold body) in the freezer for 15 minutes in the same casting position.
  • Put the lipstick on its side and carefully pry the silicon mold off.
  • After inserting the base and cover, rotate the mechanism to withdraw the lipstick stick into the container’s body.
  • With some soap and warm water, clean the silicon mold.
  • Dry well before using again.

How To Color Your DIY Matte Lipstick?

The real lipstick component is this! Using things from your pantry and kitchen is the best coloring for DIY lipstick.

Yes, you read correctly. You can safely alter your lipstick color as you want by using powders like cocoa or beet powder.

Utilizing mica powder or skin-safe organic colors is also an additional choice.

  • For a Deep Red color, use 1/2-1 teaspoon rose clay powder.
  • For a Red or Pink color, use 1/4 teaspoon of beet powder.
  • For a Pink color, use 1/4 teaspoon of strawberry powder.
  • For a Brown color, use 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder.
  • For a Light Brown color, use 1/8 teaspoon cocoa powder and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • For a Green color, use 1/4 teaspoon of maca powder.
  • For a Yellow color, use 1/8-1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder.

Why Should You Make Your Own DIY Matte Lipstick?

Using toxin-free lipstick is a crucial first step to stop toxins from accessing your blood through your skin or mouth, just like any other cosmetic or skincare product.

Given that lipstick’s chemicals are absorbed via the skin and swallowed as well, having an organic lipstick recipe is crucial. Making your own DIY matte lipstick is simple if you use the recipe I’ve provided.

When you lick your lips and bits of lipstick wear off so close to your mouth, the lipstick’s chemical ingredients are absorbed through the skin of your lips and consumed.

Conventional lipsticks, in particular, can include many hazardous chemicals to obtain long-lasting color.

How To Make Your Lipstick Last Longer?

Make sure the lips are dried, clean, and clear of flaky skin before applying lipstick; prime your lips with concealer to intensify the color, or gently spray with a setting spray.

Lipstick may last longer if you apply it with a brush rather than directly from the container.

Apply a lip liner or natural lip gloss over the lipstick if you have one to prevent smudging.

Final Words

Combine 2 cups of warm water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of washing soap. Wipe the lipstick spots with the mixture using a clean towel, then leave it alone for five to ten minutes. Another cloth should be dipped in cold water, carefully sponged, and dried with a paper towel.
