Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese wants to help out the common woman.
Ms. Teese, a former MAC AIDS spokesperson said,
“[wanted] to do my own make-up line, because I feel like things are missing in the world. I’m constantly trying to mix up colours. Also, I mix my own body make-up. I love the idea of beautiful packaging for cosmetics. I use a lot of vintage powder compacts, and I buy vintage lipstick tubes and transfer lip colours into them. I put my MAC lipstick into my vintage Helena Rubinstein tubes.I love the look of matte, velvety lips. Every girl should have a matte red and a matte fuchsia. And that’s so hard to find these days.”
Dita understands the struggle we all face, having to buy several different products, only to get home and have to make our own botched concoctions to get just the right color and look.
While the average woman may not want to look like a 50’s pinup beauty, Dita’s line is sure to have colors that suit a wide array of needs.
The vintage line is yet to debut as Dita is still in negotiations to find the suitable company to launch her product. But I will keep you updated when it does launch!
But in the meantime, why not do-it-yourself?
Here’s a tutorial on how to look Dita .
