Dita Von Teese is making the “perfect” foundation.
The burlesque beauty is launching a make-up collection with German cosmetics company ArtDeco, which is tilted Dita Von Teese Classics.
The line reflects Hollywood glamour at its best and includes a powder compact, blushes, gel eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, mascara, false lashes and 12 individual eye shadows.
When asked about foundation on her personal Twitter page, Dita promised her fans the goods.
“I am making foundation, it’s just taking me longer to get it perfect. Comes out in the fall (sic),” she wrote.
Dita is famed for her gorgeously alabaster complexion and her fans are grateful for her dedication to pale beauty products, with one Twitter user posting: “cant wait! Finally someone who understands theres more than one shade of pale (sic).”
Dita previously revealed her inspiration behind her summer cosmetics line.
“I was really motivated by things I personally wanted in my make-up kit,” she explained.

Dita Von Teese has taken to Twitter.com to hail an anonymous hero who recovered her stolen phone after it was snatched from her in France.
The model and ex-wife of rocker Marilyn Manson was perusing an outdoor market in Paris on Sunday (24Jun12) when a thief ripped her Apple iPhone right out of her hands.
However, a kind-hearted bystander jumped into action and raced after the perpetrator, returning Von Teese’s prized possession several minutes later.
The grateful pin-up has now heaped praise upon the stranger with a post on her social networking page, declaring, “Just had my iPhone snatched out of my hand at the paris flea market, but got it back thanks to a dashing hero that chased the thief down!”

International burlesque goddess and natural beauty, Dita Von Teese, made a special appearance at Dallas’ exclusive member’s only pool lounge Ku De Ta on Thursday June 7, 2012 to sip and mingle over deliciously crafted Cointreau cocktails and to kick off the launch of the summer social season. Von Teese, as brand ambassador for Cointreau liqueur, and 200 other Dallas guests gathered poolside at the summer soiree to not only showcase their cocktail chic attire but to also celebrate the birth of the original Cointreau margarita which was created by the Dallas socialite Margarita Sames in 1948.
Dita Von Teese debuted her interpretation of “cocktail chic” as she graced the red carpet in a floral print floor-length creation from her own fashion line Muse. Von Teese paired the look with Christian Louboutin heels and vintage jewelry from her own personal collection. Although she’s currently busy wrapping up her U.S. burlesque tour, Von Teese dished to Examiner.com that the capsule launch of her fashion dress collection, Muse, will be happening later this year. In addition to Muse, Dita Von Teese also hopes to introduce her lingerie collection, Von Follies, to the U.S. market sometime in the near future.
The Cointreau celebration at Ku De Ta was everything representative of glamour, chic and style. Mixologists were on hand to create the signature cocktails for the evening: the Original Margarita, the Luxe Margarita, the Cointreaupolitan, the Cointreau Lime and Soda and the Palomita. Dita Von Teese gushed over her affinity for the Original Margarita to Examiner.com due to its great refreshing taste and simplicity of preparation.
As guests sipped on one of the Cointreau creations, they were invited to enjoy a synchronized swimming performance by the Aqualillies. The Aqualillies were donned in swimming attire reminiscent of the 1940′s and 1950′s which was a perfect compliment to the style and aura of the beautiful Dita Von Teese.
Despite the thunderstorms and showers that preceded the event, the Cointreau poolside soiree undoubtedly went off without a hitch and kicked off the Dallas social summer season with a bang. Cointreau is proudly making its way to 25 various bars and restaurants in the Dallas area with more scheduled events to take place at Hotel Zaza on Saturday, June 15, Primo’s on Tuesday, June 19, and Chimy’s Fort Worth on Friday, June 22. Additional parties will take place throughout the summer and will be announced soon.
After the conclusion of the event, Dallas residents were left realizing that Cointreau is more than just a liqueur, it’s a lifestyle.

German cosmetics company Artdeco has teamed up with Dita Von Teese to present the Burlesque performer’s first makeup collection, ‘Dita Von Teese Classics’.
In addition, Artdeco has drawn inspiration from the world of haute couture to produce a new makeup collection called Art Couture.
The ‘Dita Von Teese Classics’ collection aims to help women recreate the beauty icon’s signature Old Hollywood look – porcelain skin, sensual red lips and arched black eyeliner. The products are notable for their retro cameo design, which is an homage to vintage jewellery.
For a porcelain complexion the range offers the Compact Powder ‘Face Fatal’ No. 1, a micro fine compact powder that creates a transparent, gently matt finish. Oil-absorbing ingredients eliminate shiny skin, while light-reflecting pigments create a smooth finish. The finely powdered texture blends in with the skin with the help of the accompanying puff or brush.
The four limited Blushers come in Von Teese’s favourite spring colours, including a subtle rose ‘Starlet’ No. 31, apricot shades such as ‘Ingenue’ No. 09, as well as various strong shades of rose such as ‘Ivresse’ No. 20 and ‘Paramour’ No. 22.
The retractable Eye Styler in deep black ‘Minuit’ No. 51 traces the inner and outer contours of the eye simply and precisely. This liner has an innovative, ergonomic design: the rubberized grip and the narrow shape of the pencil make it easy to apply the intensively coloured texture. The limited-edition contour pencil with built-in sharpener is ideal for sensitive eyes.
Von Teese’s signature black eyelid line is easy to recreate with the ‘Dita’ Gel Eyeliner ‘Nocturnelle’ No. 1, a gel-based waterproof black eyeliner. It is said to accentuate the eyes with just one application, with carbon black pigments creating deep black colour results. This limited-edition eyeliner has a long-lasting and quick-drying formula and is free of mineral oil, paraffin and parabens.
The Art Couture Eyeliner Brush is made of particularly fine hair, and is used for precise application of the Gel Eyeliner. A natural look is achieved when the eyeliner is applied with the tip of the brush. Placing the brush flat against the skin creates a broader line.
Von Teese’s smoky eyes can be created with Eye Shadows Matt in ‘Veuve Noir’ No. 503., combined with ‘Von Fleece’ No. 512. A more subtle look can be achieved with shades of brown, ‘Brunesque’ No. 520, ‘Sepia’ No. 530, ‘Mink’ No. 524, and light ‘Petticoat’ No. 554.
The limited Glamour Eye Shadows with tiny pearl pigments add further highlights. ‘Night Porter’ No. 300 and ‘Opulence’ No. 369 accentuate the eyes, while ‘Wisp’ No. 370, ‘Spotlight’ No. 371, ‘Gilded Lily’ No. 374, and ‘Plush’ No. 375 add just a touch of colour.
The eyeshadows can be stored in the magnetic Beauty Box Square in ‘Dita’s Design’.
The Art Couture Lash Volumizer ‘Raven’ No. 01 in jet black is a perfume-free mascara combining volume, extension, and separation of the lashes in one. Natural wax, extracted from rice bran, nourishes the lashes and makes this limited-edition mascara suitable for sensitive eyes.
The Artificial Lashes made of real hand-tufted hair make eyelashes look even thicker and longer. The ‘diva’ look is achieved with No. 39, which includes black rhinestones. They are easy to attach, and can be reused with the transparent eyelash adhesive.
The Art Couture Lipstick Velvet comes in shades designed to match Von Teese’s style. Colours include a strong orange such as ‘Bon Bon’ No. 607 and intense pinks, ‘Follies Pink’ No. 637 and ‘Demoiselle’ No. 645. For more expressive makeup results, colours such as ‘Muse Red’ No. 615, ‘Parlez-Vous’ No. 620, and ‘Maitresse’ No. 628 offer various shades of red. This silicone-free lipstick is notable for being long-lasting with full coverage and an intensive luminance, Artdeco said. Beeswax, candelilla wax, and carnauba wax nourish the lips and add a touch of fragrance.
Complementing the lipsticks is the waterproof Lip Liner in various shades of red: ‘Vermillion’ No. 06, ‘Dame’ No. 10, and ‘Fatal’ No. 15. The subtle, solid and wax-based texture helps women to achieve accurate lip contours.
The Lip Lacquer ‘Chinois’ No. 28 is suitable for adding glossy accents to matt lip colours. The creamy texture is applied easily and evenly with the new, extra short brush made of real hair.
A special feature of Von Teese’s nails is the half-moon effect, which can be achieved using Nail Lacquer ‘Moonlight’ No. 180 in pearl white. The rest of the nail is coated with red-pink nuances in ‘Dragon Lady Red’ No. 10, ‘Demoiselle Pink’ No. 19 or ‘Femme Fatal’ No. 25. The nail lacquer contains patented ceramic particles that increase its durability and create a long-lasting shine. Polyester resin shortens the drying time and reduces discoloration. The high-quality nylon fibres of the brush are fine-tuned to the formulation for a particularly even application of colour, Artdeco said.
The new products will be available as of mid-June 2012. Distribution will be limited to selective European markets only.
The Art Couture Eyeshadow Base, which comes in a limited edition design, is a colour-neutral base that prevents eyeshadow from creasing. It is said to soothe redness with bisabolol and protect the skin with Vitamin E; eyeshadows are easier to apply and last longer.
The matt eyeshadows come in petrol tones such as matt dark blue (no. 586) and matt deep green (no. 592) as well as in berry tone matt smoky plum (no. 582). Also available are more subdued colors such as matt snow white (no. 510), matt nude blush (no. 538) and matt smoky mauve (no. 578).
For a more glamourous look, the range offers eyeshadows with pearl pigments. Pearly Anthracite (no. 02) combined with pearly white (no. 10) conjure a smoky eye effect, while pearly blue sky (no. 73) and pearly light blue (no. 75) create “a harmonious look”, Artdeco said. A wide range of classical shades is also available.
To store these eyeshadows in style there is the Art Couture Beauty Box Quattro, a magnetic box available in a limited-edition design.
Free of mineral oil, the perfume-free Art Couture Khol Liner has a highly pigmented tip that helps users draw precise, clear lines. With magnesium which protects and nourishes the eye area, this limited-edition liner is suitable for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes. Artdeco suggests using the sharpener for wooden pencils to obtain a fine tip for precise results.
The Art Couture Lash Designer is designed to give lashes a more dramatic curl and extra volume, as well as optically lengthen them. Carnauba wax from the homonymous palm tree conditions the lashes and keeps them silky. This quick-drying mascara is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
The Blusher comes in four newly proposed colors: orange blush (no. 11), beige rose blush (no. 18), oriental red blush (no. 35) and red orange blush (no. 44).
The collection’s Classic Art Couture Lipsticks come in trendy orange, red and pink nuances such as cream red muse (no. 208), cream orange sun (no. 217), cream exotic paradise (no. 222) and cream pink blossom (no. 261). A softer, more subtle look can be created with cream soft nude (no. 228), cream sparkling romance (no. 235), cream fading rose (no. 254) and cream pink blossom (no. 261). The creamy texture of this lipstick is especially long-lasting, while hop extract nourishes the delicate skin of the lips to keep them soft and supple, according to Artdeco.
The new Art Couture range will be available on the market as of mid-June 2012.

Dita Von Teese is in London to launch her debut perfume at Liberty and looks suitably sexy for the “sensual scent”.
The Burlesque dancer is wore a plunging pine green gown, her signature pillarbox red Dior lipstick and, um, a damp patch along the hem.
She also helped Christian Louboutin launch his 20th anniversary exhibition yesterday, because she’s just so chic. See: Sound the shoe horn: Christian Louboutin and Dita Von Teese have launched these ‘ooh-shoes’
But why launch a scent now? And what’s B.O and smoke got to do (got to do) with it?
“My ex once told me I wore the same perfume as his mother…I wanted to create my own scent” admits Dita.
DVT [who is yet to abbreviate either the Eau De Parfum or her name, thankfully] took time out from her busy schedule to talk perfect scents and whole the B.O thing, below:
“The bottle of ‘Dita Von Teese’ is something you find in a black satin handbag of sophisticated women but the tassel and the small emblem, which is refined with a martini glass, feathers and a corset, speak in a subtle way to my Burlesque side.”
“The neck of every bottle is adorned with a silk cord with a blood red pearl, which flows into a long black silk tassel.”
“I had these visuals in my mind of glamorous women in a Parisian nightclub. I just love the idea of this beautiful heady night time when it mingles with our body odeur and smoke and nightlife.”
“Perfume is a tool for a woman to become every woman she ever wanted to be. I wore the same perfume for about 20 years, when I actually had an interesting experience.
“I was walking down the street in Paris with my boyfriend, who I’d been dating for two weeks… [ Hang on, is this a story? We’ll get a cup of tea …]
…“When he asked me what perfume I wear. When I told him the name of the fragrance he kind of hesitated and revealed that this was also his mother’s perfume.
“This really got me, because I really didn’t want him to associate my smell with his mother, but on the other hand this perfume was perfect and iconic for me, it fit me perfectly and it was mysterious and unknown to everyone I met until that day.”
“I started hunting for other fragrances that could replace it and there were some which I really liked, but none of them felt like the real me and fit me. So, I decided to create my own scent and this was a dream come true.”

Known for her unique style it’s rare for this icon to set a foot wrong.
However, tonight at the Duftstars Awards, Dita Von Teese appeared to have lost her fashion footing.
The 39-year-old showed up to the red carpet in an usual brown number which at best showed off her slender figure and quirky style, yet at worst failed to do her any justice.
The top half of the one shoulder dress was made up of several complex knots which joined together to make some very elegant swirls that revealed parts of Dita’s flesh.
Including her navel, rib sides, waist and part of her left breast; the dress was completed with a long flowing floor length skirt.
Wary about her dress choice, the flawless beauty tweeted, ‘Hmmmm…Wearing quite a risqué @JPGaultier gown tonight to the perfume awards in Berlin. This might require a merkin.’
She teamed the dress with a pair of long black leather gloves which contrasted with the style of dress, and wore her tightly curled hair down, finishing off her look with trademark scarlet lipstick.
Giving her followers on Twitter a first look at the dress, she uploaded a picture to her WhoSay account showing off the detailed Jean Paul Gaultier gown.
The caption on the picture simply read, ‘The dress…’
Whilst on the red carpet, the burlesque dancer was left unamused by the photographer’s request for her to show some more skin in her already over-exposed gown.
She tweeted, ‘Some photographer still had the audacity to tell me to “show some leg”.’
On a more serious note, the dark-haired beauty paid her respects to Beastie Boys’ rapper Adam Yauch who passed away this morning following a long battle with cancer.
Her tweet read, ‘Sad to hear of the passing of Adam from The Beastie Boys, they’re prominent on my “gettin’ ready for a show” playlist. Rest in peace.’

She posted a plea to her Twitter followers after her dog went missing but Dita Von Teese’s search for her missing dog Eva has ended in tragedy.
The burlesque dancer,39, has learned her pet pooch has died and she posted an update to her social networking site.
She said: ‘My beloved Eva passed on tonight. Thank you for all your kind words. It means a lot to me.’
Exactly how the pet pooch passed away is unknown.
On Monday the model appealed to fans to help her find her beloved canine after it went missing.
She posted to her WhoSay account: ‘My dog Eva is missing, if anyone in Los Feliz/LA sees her, email Cali@dita.net. Good thoughts for her return are also appreciated.’
Dita also posted a series of pictures of her pet as well as a shot of herself in lingerie with the long haired Dachshund.
The burlesque star was often seen out and about with her dog and she often included her furry friend in photoshoots with her.
In the meantime, I’ve added the latest images of Dita in the gallery.

Dita was seen attending last nights birthday by Perez Hilton. The theme looks to be a Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter. Personally, I am not a fan of the red hat.
