Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 tsp shea butter
  • 1/2 tsp beeswax pellets  – optional. The beeswax will give the gloss/stain a firmer texture and will melt more easily into the skin.
  • 1 tbsp cranberry powder
  • 1/2 tsp beetroot powder


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan. Add the cranberry and beetroot powders and stir well.
  2. Remove from heat and let stand for 30-60 minutes so that the coconut oil gets infused with the powders.
  3. If you're using beeswax, heat the coconut oil mixture again, and add in the beeswax. Allow to melt completely before removing from heat.
  4. Let cool for a little bit.
  5. Strain the warm oil using a cheesecloth that is placed over a fine mesh sieve.
  6. Press gently to extract as much of the oil as possible.
  7. Stir in the shea butter until completely melted and let cool.
  8. Once solidified, beat the mixture with a spoon or a hand mixer to get it nice and creamy.
  9. Scoop into a clean, airtight jar or container.
  10. Will keep for several months.


Can be used on the lips, and anywhere on the skin as a cheek tint, blush, highlighter, etc…

Gentle enough for sensitive skin.
