Jan Benham, author of the Baby Boomer’s Beauty Bible, uses this neat trick.
- 1/2 t. of red algae gel
- 1/8 t. of powdered colourant*
Apply to lips with a lip brush.
*Colourants must be cosmetic grade, and may include carmine powder, micas, or oxide…and if using oxides, should be mixed with an appropriate clay first as they don’t always mix well with the gel.
