I have something of an obsession with rose gold. I’m not sure if it’s because of the warmth or luxe of the color but I’m just drawn to it. Whether its on shoes, lamps, or anything else. I also love lipstick cases. They’re ultra lady-like and remind me of a return to a time when it was normal to have to touch up one’s lipstick throughout the day, a little 1950’s. In this tutorial I created a rose gold lipstick case from one that I purchased for $1.50 on clearance at Michaels with some paint I already had.

Then, paint with a rose gold glitter colored paint and carefully sprinkle with rose gold loose glitter. I say carefully because fine glitter tends to go everywhere. I like to complete this step inside of a plastic shoe box. Let dry for an hour.
Using your glitter finish, take a brush with a small amount of the finish and brush all over where you just put the glitter. This will allow the sparkle of the glitter to shine through but still keep the loose glitter in place and prevent it from migrating or shedding everywhere. Let dry one hour.
Carefully remove the painter’s tape from the inside of the lipstick case and discard. Brush off any loose glitter that may have fell inside of the case. If you notice any shedding occurring on the outside of the case use a second coat of glitter finish to secure the loose glitter to the surface.
Enjoy your lovely, lady like rose gold lipstick case! I like keeping MAC Bombshell lipstick inside of mine. The pearlized gold/pink finish coordinates with the outside of the case perfectly.
