One of the most interesting looks when it comes to makeup is the retro look that has been popularized by Dita Von Teese. It’s a classic style with a touch of drama, which makes it perfect for special occasions. I wanted to find out how to recreate the look and put together a Dita Von Teese makeup tutorial.
Step 1: Base
Start off by applying a primer and foundation on your face. You can add in a bit of concealer to hide any under-eye circles or blemishes you may have. Finish off the base by adding a blush to your cheeks, as this will create a healthy, youthful look.
Step 2: Eyes
The eyes are the most important part of this look, so make sure to pay attention to them. Start by applying a light brown shade all over your eyelids. Then, take a darker brown and blend it into your crease, to give the eyes some depth. Add a bit of white eyeshadow to the inner corners of your lids to brighten the look. Line your eyes with a black eyeliner and coat your lashes with some volumizing mascara.
To finish off your eyes, apply some individual false eyelashes along your lash line. Make sure to heat up the ends of the lashes with a blow-dryer before you apply them, so they’ll blend in better.
Step 3: Lips
For the lips, use a red lip liner to define the shape. Fill in the rest with a classic red lipstick. A lip gloss can also be applied if desired.
And there you have it— a classic Dita Von Teese makeup look. This look is perfect for special occasions, or any time you want to make a statement. With a few simple steps, you’ll be looking like a vintage glamour girl in no time.
