Dita Von Teese Talks Burlesque Lingerie, Makeup & Where To Spray Perfume (VIDEO)


Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese has provided us with some very useful beauty tips in the past -- we all remember to pluck our nipple hairs before a date by now, right?

So we were pretty excited to sit down with Ms. Von Teese to get some more beauty insight as she launched her new fragrance and lingerie collection for HSN on Tuesday. In between burlesque dancing, maintaining a cosmetics brand and serving as muse to Christian Louboutin, the 40-year-old has found time to design her very own collection of undergarments that combine the detailing of her signature vintage lingerie with the superior fit of modern bras.

Dita's distinct sense of style can also be seen in her two new fragrances, Dita Von Teese and Rouge, which both have that full-body smell you'd imagine Marlene Dietrich or Rita Hayworth wearing. Fortunately, Ms. Von Teese gave us very explicit instructions on just where to spritz these Old Hollywood scents.

"I always go for the back of the neck and behind the ears," she told us. "I also like to put it in my cleavage area because a lot of heat comes from there."

Duly noted. If you'd like to spray for yourself, Dita Von Teese's collections for HSN launch April 23. Watch our interview with her below for more of Dita's style tidbits!
