Dita von Teese: Being Beautiful Takes Practice

Dita von Teese Shows Off Her Beauty Routine
Landov

A quick review of the past decade in the life of Dita von Teese and two things become abundantly clear: the woman never ages, and she always looks perfect.

There’s good reason for that: Von Teese’s trademark look — alabaster skin, doe eyes and pin-up curls — is the result of years of perfecting the routine. “Practice is everything when it comes to beauty,” she tells Stylist.co.uk readers. “If I don’t do my eyeliner for a week or so, I’m not so good at it.”

To that end, the burlesque star, who always does her own hair and makeup, relies on an arsenal of products including Diorific lipstick, M.A.C rougemarie nail polish and hot rollers for a photo finish.

And just because she recycles her red carpet looks doesn’t mean the star gets ready in a hurry. “One of the things that I do to have a glamorous day is take a bit of time to put on makeup and choose clothes that I like to wear,” she says, emphasizing the importance of an area designated to primping. “[Always] have a good vanity place to do your makeup and a place with good lighting — natural light is the best.”

This is the first time I’ve ever heard of her (sorry I’m new in trying to usrtdneand this whole fashion thing lol) and I already love her personality. Closet looks much different than what I’m used to but I agree it is fantastic.
