ARTDECO: Dita Von Teese Interview

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!

According to Susan Stone at WWD, ArtDeco has announced a partnership with the beautiful and enchanting Dita Von Teese.

The retro-styled burlesque performer’s impeccable appearance caught the attention of Germany’s ArtDeco, resulting in a match made in makeup heaven. Starting in mid-June, ArtDeco will launch the first collection in a year-long collaboration with the burlesque star-turned-beauty icon.

The collection will be called “Dita Von Teese Classics”. Her first collection with the company includes the tools to replicate her classic look: blacker-than-black eyeliners for the perfect cat eye, and ruby red lipsticks, but also includes neutral eye shadows in both matte and pearl, and a subtle set of blush shades. The makeup line will include a powder compact, four blushes, a gel eyeliner and brush and pencil eyeliner, as well as 12 individual eye shadows, mascara, false lashes (with and without rhinestones), six lipstick shades, two lip liners, a lip lacquer and four nail polish colors. Packaging is black with vintage boudoir-style detailing and a sketch of the line’s inspiration, along with her name. At least two more releases are planned, one with fall-winter trend colors, and one with special luxury packaging.
