Dita Von Teese Perfected Her Look

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, Models,

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!"

The burlesque dancer, who is famed for her retro-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look, is a regular visitor to the Santa Monica Vintage Expo, where she loves finding classic items of second hand clothing and accessories.

"The Santa Monica Vintage Expo happens twice a year and is my favorite vintage fair, with the best dealers from all over the country and good deals to be had. Definitely visit Connie Parente for the best vintage designer jewelry."

As well as markets, Dita is also a fan of vintage stores and often stocks up when she's in Los Angeles: "Doris Raymond's vintage store on La Brea is my favorite LA vintage store. From 1940's beaded black crepe dresses to coveted 90s Thierry Mugler suits, I always come out of her store with oodles of gorgeousness!"

Dita Von Teese Keen For Own Cosmetics, Perfume Lines

Dita Von TeeseDita Von Teese wants her own make-up line. The burlesque dancer, who was a spokesperson for the MAC AIDS Fund in 2006 and 2007, says she is keen to have own cosmetics range because she feels not every woman is catered for.

"I want to do my own make-up line, because I feel like things are missing in the world. I'm constantly trying to mix up colors. 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 colors 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."

As well as wanting her own make-up line, Dita - who is famed for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look - is keen to release her own fragrance because she hates smelling like anyone else:

Dita Von Teese

has declared that she will never have a tattoo. Although Marilyn Manson’s ex-wife is a fan of skin etchings, she has no desire to have a permanent design herself.

“I like tattoos, but I know when and how to appreciate something without needing it for myself, and that goes for more than just tattoos!” she wrote on Twitter.

The 37-year-old star, who is famous for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look, has also revealed that she isn’t a fan of comfort clothes.

“I do relax; I just don’t relax by wearing jeans and sweatpants,” she told Las Vegas Weekly. “I have lots of robes and pajamas, and usually if you dropped in on me, I don’t wear a full face of makeup… But it’s not like I come home and go, ‘Wow, I really wish I had some sweatpants to put on right now.’ I don’t relate that to comfort. I’d rather put on a cashmere robe.”
