Your Lip Liner Defines You, Make It Count
Having a quality lip liner is a crucial first step to long-lasting, vibrant lips. In the video above, Dita recommends the classic staple MAC lipliner in Cherry. This shade has been around for a long time and had a creamy, long-wearing formula. To get those perfect lips, Dita recommends steadying your hand with your pinky, applying slowly and carefully, and filling in the entire lip with liner, not just the edges.
Shades of Red That Change Your Whole Look
For Dita’s first ‘hot pink’ red lip she chose a Rouge Pur Couture from Yves Saint Laurent which she layered over her lip liner. She describes the packaging as luxurious gold and says she enjoys a touch of luxury in her products, even though they come with a higher price tag. You can purchase these lipsticks for less than $40 on Amazon.
The second lipstick Dita von Teese showcases is from the famous brand MAC which she has collaborated with in the past. MAC has several dramatic red shades both creamy and matte formulations. Russian Red, Red Satin, and the matte Ruby Woo are all extremely popular shades used worldwide.
