What you need
- A box of non-toxic wax crayons (pick a brand like Crayola)
- A spoon/ butter knife
- A glass bowl
- A large pan
- A cooking hob
- A small box
- A lipstick brush
- Coconut oil (solid or liquid)
- Vaseline (optional)
Now follow these simple stepsStep 1:
Start with peeling off the crayon cover and cutting the crayon into approximately inch-length pieces.Step 2:
Now add about 2-3 cups of water into the pan and set the heat to medium. In case you’re using a regular gas connection, set it to low.Step 3:
When you see the water beginning to bubble, place the glass bowl in the pan. Be careful not to touch the water! (Use mittens if needed.)Step 4:
Now take about ¼ tbsp of solid coconut oil OR ½ tbsp of liquid coconut oil, and allow it to melt in the glass bowl.Step 5:
Once it melts completely, add an inch-long piece of crayon to it and stir the mixture with a toothpick. We suggest you use wooden toothpicks over plastic ones because you don’t want them melting!Step 6:
Add more coconut oil, the same quantity as before, and add another piece of the crayon to the bowl. Repeat this process till you’ve use up the entire crayon.Step 7:
When you’re done with that, pour the liquid into the container and allow it to cool down till it solidifies.Step 8:
Once it’s ready, take some on the lipstick brush and apply it on your lips - just as you would any regular lipstick!Step 9:
You can add a layer of Vaseline or clear gloss for some extra shine.
That’s it, you’re done!Now that you’re in on the secret, you can make all those cool colours you’ve always wanted!MUST-WATCH: How to Make a Super-Cute Donut Bun Using a Pair of Socks!
