Dita Von Teese is no doubt a style icon. She’s a stunning beauty so I decided to be inspired to do a make-up tutorial on her classic wingled liner and vintage red lips look. I used the L’Oreal True Match Foundation and Elizabeth Arden Mineral Make-Up as a base, and freshkon contact lenses in Sparkling Gray. You can opt to look a little paler (because she is) but I didn’t bother.
Watch the tutorial here for the full lesson!
I think that there are four elements to her look. Don’t forget her beauty spot either (that I drew in with my liner) that consists of neutral eyes, wingled liner, dark brows and of course an edgy red lip. Here we go!
1. Neutral Eyes – You want to stick with matte colors here. I used the Urban Decay eye-shadow from the Naked 2 Palette in Foxy which is a matte cream. Apply this color all over the lid and make sure it is somewhat applied heavily. You want to notice a color difference. Then, apply a matte brown to the crease. I used Buck from the Naked 1 Palette You don’t have to worry about the outer corner or outer v this time, just apply this color to the crease. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out this post: Quick Beauty Tip: Where do I put my eye-shadow? and you’ll get there. Smoke and blend away with a matte plum like Tease from the Naked2!
2. Wing Your Liner – The best eye-liner to use is a liquid liner. I’m using the Revlon Colorstay Liner. It’s a pen but liquid at the same time, my favourite kind. You want a thick winged liner so draw away! Don’t forget to add a beauty spot to your cheek bone as well!
3. Dark Brows – Some-what dark and heavy brows are characteristic of the look. I’m using the Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit and using the black to draw my brows out. A matte black also works for this look! The photo has washed out my brows, it’s darker in reality, really, just check out the video!
4. Get Red Lips – It would be even better if you were able to get a matte red lipstick but I didn’t have one so I used an OCC lip tar in Strutter to do the trick. Remember to use the lip tars with a brush and not straight on for a much cleaner look. You don’t want it staining your clothes either because it will! The look kind of reminds me of Snow White too!
Hope you liked the look!
