Ky Duyen makes lipstick, beetroot blush, and eyelash balm during the days of separation.
Ky Duyen once shared that she loves “handmade” cosmetics, because they are extremely safe and suitable for even the most sensitive skin. During the time of social distancing, Ky Duyen also learned how to make some beauty care products at home from very simple ingredients.
The first cosmetic product that Ky Duyen really succeeded in was lipstick from beetroot. Ingredients needed include coconut oil, vitamin E, Vaseline, a red beetroot and a container. She pressed beetroot juice and then mixed the above ingredients together in a ratio of 1:1:1. Then Ky Duyen boiled the mixture at a temperature of 360 degrees for one minute using a microwave oven.
The high heat will help the coconut oil and Vaseline blend together. Ky Duyen also adds essential oils to make the lipstick smell as desired. She put the mixture in a clean jar and put it in the refrigerator. Beetroot lipstick has a natural color and does not dry out the lips.
Beetroot seems to be a very popular ingredient for Ky Duyen. Besides beetroot lipstick, she also “homemade” beetroot blush. Specifically, Ky Duyen grinds beets into powder and then mixes them with corn starch to lighten the color of beets. Then, she sifted this mixture through the flour to make it smoother, filtered the fine powder, and then mixed a few drops of essential oil to create adhesion.
To compress the powder, Ky Duyen covered the surface with a layer of paper towels and then used a cylindrical object of suitable size to press them together.
Bamboo charcoal mascara
Materials needed: White beeswax, aloe vera gel, bamboo charcoal starch, coconut oil. First, Ky Duyen heated aloe vera gel with a little beeswax at 600 degrees Celsius for one minute in the microwave. Take aloe vera gel mixed with bamboo charcoal to create black color. Then pour the product into the mascara bottles.
This homemade mascara will not be able to keep the curl of the eyelashes but can make them significantly thicker, suitable for virtual living at home.
Eyelash care oil
Ky Duyen mixes coconut oil and castor oil in a 1:1 ratio with two vitamin E tablets and pours it into a jar. When using, you can use a cotton swab to apply on the eyelashes and leave it overnight. After about a week of use, you will see significantly thicker and longer eyelashes.
