Gift of the Gab: Dita Von Teese Art Deco Collections Purchases & Review
Monday, December 17, 2012
All items purchased from TenderLovingSkincare.co.uk and BeautyBay.com
Dita’s “Golden Vintage” Candlelight Powder “Dita” is a finishing powder that I apply only after I have applied all of my makeup…my liquid foundation, mascara, and highlighter, then, and only then do I apply the Candlelight powder with a fluffy brush and a light hand all over my face for that subtle glow. I was so elated to find out that it is suitable for any skin tone. The packaging is gorgeous with a 40s Old Hollywood flair. The compact itself is not as heavy as I had hoped it would be since it is made of plastic. I own a vintage 1940s Elgin American compact (pictured below) that is made completely of high quality heavy metal that I only paid $50 for, while Dita’s compact is $48 alone. I would say that if you are looking for a great finishing powder this is your product, but if you are looking for a high quality compact for show, then look for better vintage options over the internet (Etsy in particular has great options).

Beaut.ie: Perfect the Pin Up Look with the Dita Von Teese Classics Collection from ARTDECO
June 4th, 2012
ARTDECO’s latest collection is a genius collaboration with burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese. The perfectly painted pin-up – known to insist on doing her own make up – has forged a career from being the modern face of old Hollywood glamour. The pin up look is a classic for a reason, and this new collection allows all of us to channel this sexy retro style.
ARTDECO: Dita Von Teese Interview
Dear Dita Von Teese, how and why did you get the idea to develop a makeup collection with ARTDECO?
I have always wanted to have a makeup collection, makeup is such a vital stepping stone to glamour, and it’s something I know a lot about, having worked as a makeup salesgirl for many years, and also since I do my own makeup for all red carpet events, my shows and most photoshoots. ARTDECO approached me and I was thrilled, because they have excellent products and they were willing to let me get very involved in the creation of the colors and textures, and to create things that I think are unique, things I want to use myself, and things that are available at affordable prices.
What do you think is special about the collection?
The lipstick colors are beautiful and unique, I have scoured the world for certain colors I haven’t been able to find, and so I am very proud to have been able to create these unique colors that are vibrant and special versions of brilliant red, orange, magenta, and fuschia tones. Our face powder is also lovely, one of my famous makeup artist friends was marveling at the fine texture, and also loves the rich pigments of our eyeshadows. It’s really thrilling to show these products to a world-class makeup artist and have him ask me how soon he can get some to use on his celebrity clients!
