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.)
