Dita and me

suit: Lilli Ann 40s vintage
stole: fox 40s vintage
Dita is wearing a Yma Sumac original dress

I have a long and deep fan history with Dita. I discovered her 16 years ago and fell in love immediately. As a student I was working in a videoshop and there was an adult section with some fetish videos. The owner had decorated it with pictures of various fetish girls. One of them looked so special: her well coiffed hair, her way to wear the latex clothes, her porcelain-like face, her body were so different... from that day on I collected everything concerning DITA. I´m not so much interested in that Burlesque-thing, more in her early fetish movies and pictures and her 1940s style and vintage collection.

When she launched her perfume last year in October in Berlin, I was waiting of course in the first row wearing my best suit. To see her in real was strange, because she is more a tiny shy doll from a another world than a real bombshell. Doesn´t matter, she is magnificent.

Now Dita created a make up line with the German high quality cosmetic firm ART DECO. Sure she liked the name of the firm as much as I do...

I bought a magnetic beautybox to clip the eyeshadows in, a black glittering and a beige glittering eyeshadow, a blush and a dark red lipstick. Back at home I did my beautyroutine, set my hair and used the products:

The pros:

very beautiful and high quality packing
the lipstick has a great blue-based colour and staying power
the blush is very powderish and has a good spread

The contras: 

the withe eyeshadow is low pigmented 

So my result: it's more a "nice to have" than a "must have". 

Maybe I have to try the lip laquer and the nail polish too... damned I´m a make up addict!
