• 1 heaped tablespoon Shea Butter – Buy Here

• 1 level teaspoon Kaolin Clay Powder – Buy Here

• 1 level teaspoon Mica Powder to suit your colouring – you can mix shades if needed (I use a pink powder)Buy Here


• Mixing Bowl

• Mortar & Pestle (or Spoon)

• 15ml lip balm tin – Buy Here


  1. Mix the kaolin clay and mica powder together in a small bowl.

  2. Place the shea butter into the mortar and using the pestle mix it into a paste. Slowly add the powder from step 1 to the mortar, mixing it until all the ingredients are blended together without any lumps.

  3. Transfer the tint mixture to your container and using the back of a teaspoon press it down into the tin.

Note: If you don’t have a mortar & pestle, simply use the back of a spoon.

To use: lightly swipe your finger on your new tint and dab it onto your lips and smooth some into your cheeks.
