How to Make a Simple Natural Two Ingredient Lip Gloss

Last Updated on March 24, 2019 by Ellen Christian

I’ve been experimenting with how to make a natural two ingredient lip gloss. If you look in my makeup collection, one of the first things you’d notice is that I have a thing for lip gloss. I easily have a dozen or more lip gloss containers. When I looked at the ingredients, I was sort of shocked that most of them I couldn’t decipher.

How to Make a Simple Natural Two Ingredient Lip Gloss

Natural Two Ingredient Lip Gloss

Your lip gloss doesn’t have to be loaded with artificial ingredients. After all, what you’re really looking for is shine, moisture and a bit of color. Once a month, I get together with a group of other bloggers to remake a pin we find on Pinterest to make it our own. This month, I decided to remake a two ingredient lip gloss I found on Pinterest by Keep Heart. Their lip gloss started with Aquaphor and added loose pigment. Neither of those is natural so I experimented a bit using natural ingredients. Be certain you start with organic berries. You don’t need to be smearing pesticides all over your lips.


  • 1 to 2 tsp of coconut oil
  • 2 Raspberries or blackberries if you want a bolder color
  • Small container with a lid


  • Smash the berries & remove the seeds if you want.
  • Melt the coconut oil. How much you use will depend on the size of your container.
  • Mix together and pour it into the container.
  • Place in the refrigerator until it turns solid.

As a warning, coconut oil melts at about 68 degrees F. You do not want to toss this in your handbag because it will probably melt and make a mess. I keep it on my desk.

  1. The little containers for your lip gloss are adorable, too! I wish I had raspberries, I’d be making this right now. I can’t wait to give it a try. I think I have strawberries in the fridge…maybe I can sub.

  2. This is such a fantastic idea because just today I was searching for chapstick as the dry winter air has my lips peeling. My granddaughter will be here for a visit this week and I think this would be a fun DIY project for us to do together. 

  3. Wow! That is such a simple recipe for lip gloss. I love that it’s all natural too. Now that it’s winter, it’s the perfect time to give this a try. Great remake! These have been so fun. 🙂

  4. We made homemade lip gloss for one of my daughter’s birthday parties. It was an easy activity and the kids loved it.  Making your own beauty is definitely a great way to save money and control the ingredients.
