Dita Von Teese Inspired Make up Look

A Sunday night with no kids and hoping to go out somewhere nice with the other half. I’m hoping a romantic meal but either way I have plenty of time to get ready as the other half is still stuck in work. What better way to relax and get in the mood for a great evening than doing my favourite pin up girl look. Nude eye shadow, black eyeliner with a flick and red lips. This time I went for a Dita Von Teese inspired look with minimum products but maximum results. Here is what I used:

  • Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Sensitive – Light
  • MAC Select Moisturecover – NW15
  • MAC Blot Powder – or any anti shine powder you tend to use.
  • Diego Dalla Palma Snow White Palette – Destiny and Battleground
  • Illamasqua Eye Liner Cake – Mislead
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil – Yeyo (Use this on the lower lash waterline to open your eyes up making them look bigger)
  • MAC Lip Pencil – Redd
  • MAC Lipstick – Russian Red (Simply the best red ever, I love all my red lipsticks but this is my go to colour.)


Illamasqua Eye Liner Cake Review

I am a huge fan of Illamasqua products although they rank quite highly they are also quite pricey but if you’ve got the money they are most definitely worth it. I love what the brand stands for, it pushes you to be yourself and dare to be different. One of my favourite products are Illamasquas Eye Liner Cakes, if you haven’t tried one yet then your missing out. Now this isn’t the standard type of eye liners, its not a pencil, gel or technically a liquid. So how does it work ?.

Well you add two drops of their sealing gel and mix it in to your chosen eye liner cake, once you’ve done this now you have your liquid eye liner. It dries quickly and once you’ve applied it, its not going to budge.


One thing I do recommend it use a decent stiff eye liner brush as this will make the product much easier to work with. It will give you the perfect definition and you will become an expert at the cat eye / eye liner flick. I recommend you give this a try you will not be disapointed. I currently have Mislead (black) and Zeal (green). Danger looks really nice too which is a blue colour, do you dare?

  • Staying Power – 5/5
  • Colour – 5/5
