Dita Von Teese Perfected Her Look

Dita Von TeeseDita Von Teese used to practice her beauty routine. The burlesque dancer is famed for her glamorous look but admits it's taken years to get it right and find a look that suited her.

"It depends on my time clock how long I need to get ready. Whether I have two minutes, or I have five minutes or if I have an hour. For example a quick day to day routine for five minutes would be mascara, powder and red lipstick and hair in a chignon. Once a woman has established what her look is and her routine is - you can practice and then get very quick. I've been practicing for such a long time."

However, Dita - who recently launched her own perfume - says she still needs a mirror when getting ready because her look is so precise: "No mirror? I definitely need a mirror but mine is very precise style. Steady hand I've been painting that eyeliner for 22 years. You certainly can't do a cat eye with no mirror. And you can't do it on the go either - it is too precise!"
