I keep reading about all of these movies coming out and quotes from people saying, “We don’t take off our clothes — we’re classy. It’s like burlesque without the strip.” And I’m like what are you talking about? There is no burlesque without the strip. The trick is can you be classy, sophisticated, elegant AND take off your clothes? Every man wants to be with the American pinup. I want to be her. ▬ Dita Von Teese.

It’s important to remember that the most important fashion icons are people that are leaders and not followers. Its not just about buying the most expensive clothes or the most expensive hand bag, its about a personal style and knowing what’s unique about you rather than following the trends.Dita Von Teese, Vogue (via delectablydita)
If you want to borrow ideas from the style of burlesque icon Dita Von Teese, I have a freshly uploaded tutorial inspired by her makeup application (click HERE to see the video).
You can certainly apply your foundation the usual way, instead of paling it down a bit like I do in the video. If you do decide to wear a slightly lighter base shade, remember to blend it down your neck and over any other skin your blouse or top exposes.
More to come for makeup and beauty lovers. :)
Today, I filmed a tutorial based on the makeup worn by glamorous Dita Von Teese.
The video will be posted on my YouTube channel as soon as I’m done editing it, and I’ll also be back here with the link.
I hope your day is going really well. ♥
