If you’ve ever spent an hour or more at the MAC lipstick station, this one’s for you. Most likely, you’ve got an epic collection that looks more like a cosmetics yard sale than a vanity.

Lipstick trends come and go, but there’s no reason to throw last year’s “it” shades into the reject pile. Instead, get creative and mix things up—literally. Melting a few of your favorite lipsticks together to invent fresh new hues can bring endless inspiration to your makeup game.

Combine a nude with raspberry and you’ve got a subdued pink pout. Wanna brighten up a rosy shade? A little fuchsia can help with that. The best part about this is you no longer have to sit back and wait for your dream color to get made… YOU can make it yourself!

Watch the DIY video to see how easy it is to breathe new life into your insatiable lipstick habit. All you need is a candle, a double boiler, a few lipsticks and some imagination.
