How to DIY Lipstick palette in 7 easy steps
Here is a short and easy tutorial on how to add to or make your own lipstick palette. This is especially useful for makeup artists on a budget. Most professional pre-made lipstick palettes can cost up to $75.00 — $150.00, but if you already have a collection of good quality lipsticks that you love, why not put them to good use on your own clients?
- Sanitize them if you have used them on your own lips before. I shave off the tiny slant, and then spray it with rubbing alcohol. It will eventually set and dry. It doesn’t matter what it looks like, because you’ll be melting them anyway.
- Purchase a bead organizer from a craft store — preferably the kind of organizer with detachable containers. That way when you want a lipstick for yourself again, for an event or in order to lend it to a client, all you have to do is take the single lipstick out instead of packing the entire palette. Pack a lip brush and you’re good to go. (Actually most professional lipstick palettes don’t even have detachable lipsticks, so this little trick is even cooler.)
- Light a candle (I recommend lightly scented candles)
- Take a lipstick of your choice and a large tablespoon, and scoop out the product.
- Place the spoon over the candle, and slowly lower it (the bottom of the spoon will blacken, but when you’re finished it easily wipes off with a paper towel). Patience is a virtue, so don’t shove the spoon so close to the fire, but close enough to watch it gradually melt.
- Then with a steady hand (not always possible :p ) pour into containers.
- Let sit for 10 minutes, or pop in fridge for 5. The lipstick should be good to go!
This is an awesome idea, even if you aren’t a makeup artist. I promise it will also lower the clutter you have in your lipstick draw. I’ve fit 30 lipsticks in one whole palette already. My draw has never looked neater.

Put coconut oil in your hair, exercise, take hot showers, massage lotion into your skin, eat food that makes you feel good, stretch, lay around in bed, and listen music that makes you feel happy. Just do you.
What I’ve Learned:
1. A girl can lose feelings for you over night.
2. A kiss can be just that, a kiss. Completely meaningless.
3. Love can be one sided but I still wonder if that is love at all
4. Never beg for someone to stay or to love you. You shouldn’t have to beg for someone to be a part of your life or to love you. You deserve better than that.
5. Stop breaking your ribs to make space for those who do not belong there.
6. Learning to breathe again is harder than the doctors said it would be.
7. I don’t know what hurts more at night; being alone or being in love.
8. Laying with someone in bed at night is temporary. It won’t get rid of the lonely. You will still wake up and leave in the morning with a heavy heart and no hand to hold.
9. Sometimes the sky rains gasoline instead of water and you have to be strong enough and ignore the urge to set yourself on fire.
10. I will be okay someday. Bad things happen for no reason sometimes and things end but that shouldn’t mean you should come to an end too. The ocean will always have waves; I just have to learn to swim through them for a bit longer.
11. The stretch marks I left on my mother from birth will not be another suicide letter I never finished.
