Dita Von Teese Says Makeup Makes Her Feel Confident


Glamorous lingerie designer Dita Von Teese is never seen without makeup on and she explains that wearing a full face of makeup makes her feel confident. The model comments that when she doesn’t have enough time, she’ll wear sunglasses and quickly apply red lipstick so she can look her best:

“I’m always in sunglasses, with my hair pulled back and my red lipstick on. It’s not like I’m afraid of being seen without make-up but it’s good manners to present yourself in a nice way. I also have more confidence when I’m made up.”

Dita says she does have a relaxed side and doesn’t wear makeup or heels when she’s just at home having some time off, however she does make an effort when she’s stepping out and will always have her makeup done:

“It can seem like I’m a high maintenance woman if you don’t know me, but I’m only high maintenance for myself. There are lots of unglamorous moments when you’re a do-it-yourself kind of girl… I don’t always wear make-up in the house. I walk around in one of my long dressing gowns – I’m not trotting around permanently in high heels.”

Dita says makeup boosts her confidence and it doesn’t have to take a long time for women to apply a quick layer of makeup that will make them feel that they look their best:

“Some of the most glamorous people I know are that way because they wanted to be. Helena Rubinstein said, ‘There are no ugly women in the world, only lazy ones.’ You needn’t spend a lot of time getting ready – in five minutes, there are things you can do to help feel confident.”
