With her motto "Beauty is Art" Dita von Teese now releases her Classics makeup line for Art Deco. About beauty and the transformation with makeup, she says: "The truth is that I'm quite an ordinary looking girl. When I was a little girl, I remember watching classic Hollywood films from the 40s and noticing that these glorious women were painted that way. Glamour is about creation, and any woman who desires it can learn to create it for herself as I have. I believe that makeup has the power to transform any ordinary woman into an extraordinary one."

Since I'm a vintage girl - leaning towards the more glamorous part of vintage, just like Dita - these products and colors are what I usually wear when it comes to makeup. So for me all of these things would be interesting to try out! But if I could chose only a few the powder, lipstick and artificial lashes would come first!
