Dita Von Teese always puts on red lipstick to feel glamorous. The burlesque dancer–who is famed for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and glam makeup look –says she could never leave the house without bright colored lips because it completes her look.
As well as glamorous lipsticks, Dita is a huge fan of designer handbags and shoes. She said, “90 percent of my shoes are by Christian Louboutin, including a pair of Marie Antoinette shoes. I love structured, retro handbags that look like bags my grandmother would carry.”
The 38-year-old star recently revealed she wants to have own makeup range because she feels not every woman is catered for. Dita–who was a spokesperson for the MAC AIDS Fund in 2006 and 2007–said, “I want to do my own makeup 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 makeup.”
“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.”
