Lip stains are long lasting and designed to tint or dye your lips a certain shade of your choice. They are often matte so if you want a little sheen to the look, apply lip balm first before applying the lip stain. There are lip stain products that work as a cheek stain as well. Some popular brands for lip stain: Sephora, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Kat Von D, Becca Beach.
Tinted lip balms are moisturizing and hydrate your lips. They only show a hint of color and are great alone or combined with a lip stick. Some popular brands for tinted lip balms: Benefit Cosmetics, Laura Mercier, Stila, Tarte.
There are a few subcategories for lipsticks including moisturizing, sheer, matte, cream and so on. Let’s start with moisturizing lipsticks, they may have ingredients such as vitamin E, glycerin and aloe. They are perfect if you have dry lips. Sheer lipsticks have oil components that make your lips glossy and the color does not show as well as matte lipsticks. Matte lipsticks are my personal favorite because they are pigmented. They are not shiny and the shade shows well on your lips. Cream lipsticks contain more wax for a smooth effect and to protect your lips. Some popular brands for lipsticks: Mac, YSL, Lancome, Makeup Forever.
Lip balms help moisturize and nourish lips from drying effects of different seasons. Some lip balms have SPF to protect your lips from the sun. They come in different shapes, sizes and flavors. Some popular brands for lip balms: EOS, Maybelline Baby Lips, Burt’s Bees, Nivea.
Lip gloss adds shine to your lips and sometimes an additional feature such as color, glitter, or flavor. The color lip glosses are not as opaque as lipsticks or lip stains could offer. Some popular brands for lip gloss: Lancome, Revlon Color Stay, NYX.
Lip liner pencils are for outlining your lips or for coloring on your lips for a matte finish look. They are either long and skinny or short and stubby. There are lip pencils that needs to be sharpened from time to time or the ones that you twist once the exposed part of the product becomes dull or breaks off. Some popular brands for lip liners: Mac, Nars, NYX.

The first one will be a coconut oil makeup remover. All you need is 1 cup of Organic Coconut Oil and a jar. You can melt the coconut oil in a microwave-safe container before storing it in a nice glass jar. You simply just take a cotton pad and put a bit (1 teaspoon) of coconut oil on it to remove your long day of makeup off.
Baby Shampoo does not create any tear for baby’s eyes so it works great as a makeup remover. Apply a few drops to cotton ball to remove makeup.
The third makeup remover would be olive oil which is good for your skin because it not only removes heavy makeup but it acts as a moisturizer as well too. Put some olive oil on a cosmetic cotton pad and gently rub onto your face to take away the makeup and dirt. Plain olive oil works well but it’s better to use extra virgin olive oil. The combination of filtered water and olive oil will result in a hydrating makeup remover!
Another makeup remover is 100% sweet almond oil that is also moisturizing oil. Dab a cotton ball or cotton pad of sweet almond oil and pat over your eyes and face to remove the makeup.
These are just a few out of many DIY makeup removers that you can create.
