Dita Von Teese Classics Makeup Collection for ArtDeco Cosmetics

I really  love the Dita Von Teese Classics makeup collection for ArtDeco as every girl can find the beauty products for the ultimate glamour in it.

Dita’s words prove one more time that you can ‘create’ your image and look how you want. Makeup is a great way to transform the way you look and it is so much fun!

“The truth is that I‘m quite an ordinary looking girl. When I was a little girl, I remember watching classic Hollywood films from the 40s and noticing that these glorious women were painted that way. Glamour is about of creation, and any woman who desires it can learn to create it for herself as I have. I believe that makeup has the power to transform an ordinary woman into an extraordinary one.” Dita Von Teese

Here are the products from the collection:

Eyes

“For glamorous eyes, I begin with an ivory, white or pale toned eyeshadow over the entire lid and browbone with a flat brush, leaving the crease bare. Next I use a more pointed, full shadow brush to emphasize the crease with a pale beige, taupe, grey shadow. For a very dramatic look, I use a black shadow in the crease with a very defined line drawn just where the lid meets the crease. Alternating between the ivory-dusted flat brush and the contour shade, blend well. For extra glamour in the evening, the final touch is to use a sparkling white at the browbone and the pale lid.” Dita Von Teese.
