Everyone who knows me knows I absolutely love Dita Von Teese. She was, and still is such a big influence and inspiration in my life, especially when I first started burlesque dancing and performing. I love everything about her, from her look and style, to the way she performs, to her glamorous personality. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago at “Strip Strip Hooray,” in Hollywood and she is so sweet. Her insides absolutely match her outside beauty.
I have all of Dita’s books and just finished reading her latest one, ” Your Beauty Mark, the Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour,” and it’s an absolutely fabulous book.
There are so many things I love about this book, but I think the thing I love the most about this read, is that it is not just a style/beauty guide book or a “how to” book. Dita covers every aspect of her life and mixes her wonderful tutorials and information with wonderful anecdotes such as her life growing up and how she first discovered the ladies of Old Hollywood and how much they inspired her to develop her own spectacular lifestyle. The book also contains stories of all the wonderful people she has met and worked with in her career and life which was really fun to read.
The tutorials in “Your Beauty Mark,” are very descriptive and are very detailed and easy to follow which is not always the case in beauty guides. She covers everything from how to do her makeup looks from foundation to finish, to creating her different hair styles, and fabulous fashion tips.
Completely separate from the beauty tutorials, Dita also provides stretches and exercise to help you stay fit and tips on having a healthy lifestyle, all of which are very helpful.
I really could go on and on about “Your Beauty Mark” and how much I enjoyed it but it would take too long. If you are looking for the perfect guide on how to be your best glamorous self, or just want to read about Dita Von Teese, or even just to go through and see a beautiful variety of photos of her, this is the book for you. Whatever reason you have , “Your Beauty Mark,” is a definite MUST HAVE and I highly recommend it.
