Today we're gonna learn how to make your own cranberry lip gloss! There's nothing funner for me than getting a bunch of my girlfriends together and whipping up fast and easy homemade beauty recipes. We do everything from crazy face masks, to nail polishes, to moisturizers, etc. And, since my last “make your own lipgloss” post seemed to generate so much buzz, I though I'd give you guys another yummy lipgloss recipe, and this time it's delicious cranberry! Here's how to!

Make Your Own Cranberry Lip Gloss


Step 1

Take 1 tablespoon almond oil, 10 fresh cranberries, 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly (optional – for more shine).

Step 2

Mix together all ingredients and place in a microwave or heat-resistant container. Heat in the microwave or a water bath until the mixture just begins to boil (1-2 minutes in the microwave). Stir well and gently mash the berries. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove all pieces of cranberry. Stir and allow to cool completely. When cool, spoon into a clean container.
