How-to: do it like Dita
Ms Von Teese certainly has sultry down pat – and now you can too! Simply follow our step-by-step guide for instant sex appeal…
1.) Create a flawless canvas with a skin-matching foundation, such as Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation, before lightly ‘blotting’ your face with a translucent powder. This will help you achieve Dita’s soft, matte finish.
2.) Sweep a slightly iridescent shadow in a neutral hue (think beige, white or cream) across your eyelid, blending it up to fade just under your brows.
3.) Define your upper lash line with a longwear gel eyeliner, such as Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, extending the line outwards towards your temples to create a winged effect (click here for a step-by-step guide to the perfect winged eyeliner).
4.) Use an eyelash curler, such as Revlon Beauty Tools Cushion Grip Lash Curler, to gently curl your lashes and widen your eyes.
5.) Get your hands on some false lashes - you can use a full set, or individual corner lashes depending on your preference – and carefully apply (click here for a step-by-step guide to perfectly applied falsies).
6.) Apply one coat of lash thickening mascara, such as Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara Thickening. While the mascara dries, use a brow pencil in a hue slightly darker than your natural brow shade and accentuate your brows. Once done, apply another coat of mascara for an extra intense effect.
7.) Line your lips with a fiery red pencil, taking care to accentuate your cupid’s bow as much as possible. Finish by filling in the rest of your pout with a matching lipstick and adding a slick of gloss to the centre of your lips.
Tip: Recreate Dita’s screen-siren beauty spot by carefully dotting it on to your skin using your gel eyeliner – just be sure you have a steady hand!
