Get It Custom: DIY Lip Colors

When it comes to lipstick, finding the perfect color for you can be hard. There are so many options and whether it’s color, thickness or texture, you can spend years searching for your perfect lipstick. So rather than spend the next decade trying to endlessly search for that perfect shade, why not get creative and mix it up yourself? Just take out what you already own and start mixing! Just think of all the possibilities once you start blending up your own combinations. Follow these easy steps:

The great part about all of  this is the sky is the limit. This DIY project is reminiscent of grade school art class. You can take two completely different colors and mix them together in order to get a dramatic new one, or you can take two or more similar colors to get a slight variation. Keep in mind these basic combinations:

  • Dark Orange+Nude = Poppy
  • White + Berry = Mulberry
  • Bright Red + Blue = Purple

Happy Mixing!
