YouTube tutorial of the week: Dita Von Teese

Welcome to a new feature here on Retrodiva’s Beauty! Once a week, I’m going to post one of my favorite YouTube tutorials for your enjoyment. Most will be how-to’s or tutorials, but occasionally I might throw a product review video up here as well. Some of the video bloggers may be friends, most probably won’t – I’m sharing them based on how useful I think they are, not how good of friends I am with the person in the video.

This week, I’m sharing a tutorial on achieving a classic retro glamour look similar to what my personal style icon, Dita Von Teese wears. I’ll post my own thoughts after the video. Enjoy!

For the best results, use a liquid eyeliner for the cat eye. If you’re not comfortable with liquid, the next best thing is a gel liner with an angled brush. The angled brush is key, so make sure you have one on hand.

I love her technique of concealing the lips and then using liner to literally repaint the lips. I’ve never tried it, but I will and report back!
