Dita Von Teese’s make up collection with Art Deco is a collection of neutral eyeshadows and red lips – what else right? This is the Dita look!
She says “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.”
Art Deco (a German brand) makes little eyeshadows that can be stored in their palettes (I have a Magnum one with a selection of colours!).
I purchased the following from Beauty Bay:
The palette, 8 eyeshadows (6 from the Dita collection, 2 from the permanent range).
Colours – 554, 374, 520, 524, 530, 612, 642 and 300. 612 and 642 are permanent.
The plastic lids can be slid off and thrown away once you put them in a palette.
The palette I created is quite neutral with some sparkle!
554 – Beige matte cream
374 – White with sparkle
520 – Cool toned nude brown matte
524 – Dark chocolate brown matte
530 – Warm toned brown matte
612 – Sparkly beige
642 – Sparkly chocolate
300 – Black with silver sparkle
This palette was made for these colours! I can see this being good for daytime or evening wear:
I like warm and cool toned browns which is why I bought all 3 browns from the Dita range. The eyeshadows are good quality – you can definitely get good use out of them although they’re not out of this world buttery or anything. At around £4 a colour, it’s decent value.
I also purchased a Lip Lacquer – in shade 28 which is a true red:
Art Deco lip lacquers are highly pigmented and come in a heavy tube with a brush applicator.
This is seriously thick lip stuff! I like the brush applicator a lot but perhaps it makes the application slightly streaky.
I love the rich opacity of the colour but it is also a loud red. I am not too confident wearing reds, so I think that if I were to choose one for regular wear (not say a party) I’d prefer a semi matte red – this red being so bright and glossy for me attracts too much attention to my lips which are quite full naturally:
It is a really nice red for people who like strong true reds, perhaps just a bit too much for me.
What do you think of Dita Von Teese’s Art Deco make up range?
