Coming Soon (December 1st) Dita Von Teese new book, Beauty Mark. I have waited for this book for well over two years. Not sure why there has been a delay but I do know Dita does not put her name on something unless it’s perfect. Dita is a glamour puss 24/7. Her style is not a “costume” but a way of life. Just take a look at her social media and you will see her glamorous life.
If you know me, you know how much I love everything vintage. I am totally convinced I was born in the wrong era. What I love about Dita is she took the time to learn how to get the look. She has studied the great beauties of the past and have learned their beauty secrets. Now she is ready to reveal her own secrets. I do know one tip, she stays out of the sun. That is a beauty tip everyone can use and the sooner you start, the better your skin will age.
What I love about the vintage makeup looks, is prior to the 1960, was simplicity. The glam part was the eyeliner, bold lips and eyeliner and nails. That look is easy to get but needs to be applied artfully. Dita has that look down pat.
description of the book:
From burlesque show to fashion runway, magazine cover to Internet video, fashion icon and “burlesque superheroine” (Vanity Fair) Dita Von Teese has undergone more strokes of red lipstick, bursts of hair spray, boxes of blue-black hair dye and pats of powder in a month than a drag queen could dream of in a lifetime. Whether she’s dazzling audiences swirling in a towering martini glass in Swarovski-covered pasties and stilettos or sparking camera flashes on the red carpet, one reality is constant: for this self-styled star, beauty is an art. Now, for the first time in her Technicolor career, Dita divulges the beauty wisdom that keeps her on international best-dressed lists and high-profile fashion show rosters in this illustration and photography-filled opus.
