Dita Von Teese

I absolutely love burlesque, I think it is super sexy and empowering to women. When you think of modern day burlesque, who do you think of? Dita Von Teese of course!

I am so happy Dita has bought out her own make-up line, I had a look and tested a couple of bits in Debenhams a few weeks back and thought the eyeshadows were gorgeous, so pigmented and in lovely colours.

When asked a few questions, this is what Dita had to say about her make-up style:

1. Alabaster skin is the perfect base for a vintage look. I’d never dream of getting a tan — I always wear sunscreen and put on a hat when I’m out in the sun.
2. Classic red lipstick is the most chic beauty statement a women can make. Matte lips are like luscious rose petals. Add just a touch of gloss to the centre.

3. In the Thirties and Forties, leaving the half-moon at the bottom of your nail was the epitome of elegance. It has now become modern and chic again.
4. For a dramatic look, I start with a neutral lid, define a line of black shadow in the crease. Finish with a sparkling white on your brow bone and eyelid.
5. I always powder my nose using pressed powder in an exquisite, jewelled compact. They are hard to find, but Estee Lauder does wonderful ones at Christmas.
